The interview has some tabloid material in the form of memories about Steve's affection for LSD, which Trip Hawkins says he thought to bring "positive transformation" to one's ideas.
There was, however, a "quality of fearlessness" at the time when both were barely above drinking age, not really knowing how the odds for them to succeed stacked up, which is the driving force behind many startups. Trip Hawkins also said that once Steve Jobs complimented him on his creativity, and he thought this to be an "incredible validation" of his skills.
He has a lot more about Steve Jobs's early years and character at his own blog in the source link, as well as in the video interview below.
