Trey Talks Phish

Trey Anastasio Talks Phish with Rolling Stone

Trey at Jammys
By R. Snyder
Trey Anastasio sat down with Rolling Stone last week, and while he didn't say Phish was getting back together, he did hint at it.

Trey told RS's Brian Hiatt: "When Phish broke up, I made some comment about how I'm not gonna go around playing 'You Enjoy Myself' for the rest of my life. And it's so funny because Fish and Mike and Page have been talking to each other a lot lately and now — it's not that I can't believe that I said that, but its symbolic of how much I lost my mind or how much I lost my bearings or something. Because at this point in time I would give my left nut to play that song five times in a row every day until I die. I certainly thought about that while I was in jail."

Trey recently received a reduced sentence of three years' probation for possessing painkillers without a prescription; more info on Trey's sentencing can be found here. Trey currently has one show scheduled for the summer on August, 2 at the Newport Folk Festival in Newport, RI where he will perform solo acoustic.

So go fine JamBase users, go and set the comment board ablaze! And you might as well listen to the epic "Y.E.M." (below) with Santana from Stowe, VT in 1992 while you do it...

Now, I'm not the biggest Phish fan in the world. I did see 35 shows between 1992 and 1995, but lost interest after Jerry died and the Phish scene blew up. I saw them 10 more times between 1995 and the end. However, this surely looks like the makings of a comeback, at least in the embryonic stages. I would definitely see them if they got back together...It's just a shame that they're not allowed to play at Red Rocks, the greatest venue on the planet.

Anyone remember after the "hiatus" at a show in Hampton VA how Trey got pissed and started YEM over after the first few bars because he said that they had been practicing that song so much and he wanted to play it right? He sure seems to have a love/hate relationship with that song. I on the other hand love it unconditionally. I'll see you heads in the lawn Page side in 2010!

Already left this one on another thread, but here goes: whatever comes of this is cool, but let it be Trey's decision. He doesn't owe us anything. Seeing how things turned out in August of '95, if you could've maybe taken some of the pressure off Jerry by saying, "You don't have to tour for our sakes - we love you and we want to to be healthy and with us a long time", would you have done it? Yeah? Well ... maybe the same goes for Trey. These folks don't live just to please all of us- and they don't make changes in their lifestyles to hurt us ... don't hate them for stepping off the ride if they need to. If it's fun, play - play your heart out, Trey. But this time, do it for you, buddy.

Bryan24,a01---it is because in 1996 someone got hit by a car....a phish fan....in Morrison. Phish, took the heat, and were banned. Great show though.

I am glad that Phans are starting to realize that this is not about us, but about Trey and his quest to stay healthy....this is most important.

Phish got banned at Red Rocks also because of numerous incidents of ticketless hordes in the parking lot causing incidents with security and police, not to mention the town of Morrison. I attended the run -- along with the Allman Brothers show the night before, which was superior to any of the four Phish shows to these ears -- and this was a case where Phish just became too "big" for a venue, in this case Red Rocks.

Jail can definitely put things into perspective, so maybe Trey has finally realized that being bitter about playing the same songs with Phish was a mistake. It takes a really shitty experience, like jail, to see what truly makes you happy in life. Phish has not only made their phans happy but it fulfilled the lives of the band members as well. Although it has lead Trey to drug abuse many more people would be worse off if Phish didn't exist. I personally am VERY grateful that Phish created the music they did for as long as they did, even though I never saw them live. I would love to get the chance to see those guys on stage together, but I also understand that it may never happen. One thing that is certain is that many people like myself would welcome a reunion with open arms if they chose to do so.

I assumed Trey would be talking dirty. What a f'n tease.

Can you imagine when they finally do announce a tour.... hmmmm... $60-75 tickets at sold-out venues and thousands of kids outside in the lots...

Seriously, Phish will need to book a tour stricktly of festivals (ie the Great Went, Clifford Ball, Lemonwheel, IT, Big Cypress)... One in each time zone... Most obviously a large NYE back at Big Cypress, which has a ten year reunion quickly approaching!

REDROCKS: From what I remember, Redrocks was a mess. People would be climbing all over the place back then. Trying to sleep in the hills. It was after Jerry and the deadhead who didn't want to go home joined the phish people and it just got to big for that venue.

Just for the record...someone WAS hit by a car, which, along with many run-ins with cops were the TRUE reasons for the ban from Red Rocks. Of course they were TOO BIG for Red Rocks (you don't get banned for that) and Morrison didn't want to deal. Remember when Phish played the Fillmore in 98? That was after Vegas Halloween sold out in minutes....they were WAY "too big" for that. San Francisco knows how to deal with "those types" a 'lil better, as many know. Also, jesus christ isn't a jambase or phish fan.

The shows are not going to have to be mammoth. Last time when they came back from hiatus you had to give away tix to some of the shows. (Not the first NYE/Hampton but soon afterwards.) Most of the people who used to go on tour are grown up now with jobs and kids and probably will do a fraction of the shows they used to. And the kids nowadays seem to prefer hip-hop. I'm not saying the shows will be empty but Phish is going to be a smaller thing than it used to be.

Red Rocks was great while it lasted, but they went from playing 2 nights to 4 nights. If I recall they were the first to play more than 3 in a row. With no Grateful Dead to follow, and no adequate camping nearby, it was a recipe for disaster. For those who were there on the Tuesday night after all the shit went down the night before and there was talk of even cancelling the last 2 shows, you were treated to one of the greatest Red Rocks concert EVER. Not only did the setlist address the police situation by opening with Makisupa Policeman, the first set built to a fever pitch during Antelope while these 2 giant clouds (one white and one black) came from around each side of the rocks to meet up behind the stage. The entire ampitheatre was surrounded by low lying clouds...and then came the lightning!!! In the distance at first, then closer lighting up the clouds much like their strobe lights during the heavy smoke machine. There was so much static electricity in the air, everyone hair was LITERALLY standing on end. The crackling of energy was building as Trey scratched out the into to Tweezer and something had to give. As Phish played the Beatles "A Day in the Life" we were about to get the shock of our lives. After Page sang the first few verses, the song reaches the part where it builds and builds until it pops and then they have the line..."Woke up, got outta bed dragged a comb across my head." Only this time when they hit that one super sharp note the skyexploded and a GIANT LIGHTNING BOLT ARCED FROM ROCK TO ROCK RIGHT OVER THE CROWD! I was certain that we were all going to die, as they continued the show and torn into Big Black Furry Creatures From Mars to continue taunting the Red Rocks Gods as it started to finally rain. Fishman then came out on cue to sing Purple Rain in an attempt to appease the Gods, and luckilly it worked and our lives were mercifully spared. While the show may not look like much on paper, those who were there will nver forget, unless they are still experiencing seizures from the massive electroshock to their cerebral cortex... Get the show if you can and listen to the crowd after that moment in "A Day in the Life" and you will hear a 1 second pause followed by one of the LOUDEST roars you have ever heard.

08/06/96 (Tue) Red Rocks Amphitheatre - Morrison, CO

Set 1: Makisupa Policeman, Rift*, Suzie Greenberg, Simple, Theme From the Bottom, Lizards, Dinner and a Movie, Horn, Run Like an Antelope

To the guy that said SCI brings hugs crowds to RR too, come on buddy?! There were more heads running around in Morrison than SCI had at their shows. Remember when SCI tried to play big amphitheaters when Phish was on their 1st hiatus? SCI & Phish, even in SCI's home state, are like comparing apples and oranges.

Also, if anybody really thinks that the boys never hit their stride after hiatus, just go listen to 4 night NYE run in Miami. It was as good a 4 night run as they've EVER had in their careers!

So do I need to get 2nd job now and start saving for this tour?

Ivan Neville said in an interview after he got off the crack that he had lost his way when the drug became more important than making music. Now, Ivan and his Dumpstaphunk will funk your brains out.

Jon Fishman seems to be playing all over and I saw Mike Gordon at JazzFest trying to get into the Blues Tent in front of me--for the music.

Trey lost his direction and the direction has been found.

I ask the rest of the band to let Trey play YEM once a show without taking his left nut.

SPEAKING THE TRUTH:

If Phish got back together, the inevitable festival would get ruined by people who go to these festivals to party ( a lot in the past few years) and not to party with the music...I despise these people and wish they would stay in their mothers basements. I am sure not many of these degenerates are on jambase, but we have all seen them...This is happening because we come home after an amazing time and tell our wonderful stories...which of course travels through the grape vine and end up at the bottom...the dirt of this earth...they ruin good time, good fun, I would like to give my left nut for these low life ugly mother f*ckers to see a Slayer, Slither, Papa Roach, or METALLICA show...then ever to see them again...

I hear ya, twalsh...maybe it's my age, but I caught over 40 shows between 1995 and 2000, and quite frankly, the crowd was going down hill then...too many rude, inconsiderate people...only there for the drugs and the scene and not the music...I was in the parking lot of a show when Mike rode by on a golf cart and someone yelled "hey trey"...his friends tried to correct him, but he didn't care...as he said, "I'm only here for the drugs"...bad time...I know one person shouldn't label an entire crowd, but there were handfuls and handfuls of people just like him...

I have great memories...and it won't be the same (just like when the Dead got too big)...too many good bands with chill crowds to put up with idiots and assholes just to say "I was there"...

I'll wait to see what happens before pump'in my stick...

To set things straight, the town of Morrison was vocally agaist the reaction of the police that night. They put the blame of that whole mess on the cops for overreacting. Shitty that it had to go down like that. Mainly cause I wanna see another Phish Red Rocks run. Never gonna happen though.

Until it is announced, Phish is floating upside down in the aquarium. (just waiting/hoping it comes back to life). Maybe they'll play the end of the world, 21-Dec-2012.

Hey PAoldhead, I hear ya. It was getting very hardcore. Still fun but you can't trust a lot of the heads walking by (anymore).

Until Trey feels the urge to hit the road with the rest of the Phab4, watch my video of most of the Tower Jam at IT.

Whether Trey plays solo acoustic, or with Phish, or TAB, or Oysterhead, or GRAB, or Phil and Friends, or with some completely new project, I really don't care. All I want is to be able to experience Trey performing live music once again. It's been a rough year and a half for Trey and his fans. I'll be excited to hear Trey perform anytime, anywhere, and with anyone, but if it's with Phish even better. The most important thing is that Trey stays healthy so he'll be around for his family and his fans for many years to come.

Now this is rather encouraging. It seems the odds are in the favor of this happening. I mean really? Who hasn't gotten back together these day? Most of those people are old, some of the old memebers of the bands are dead and the hate each other and those bands still get back together. So why shouldn't some young guys who are actually friends do the same thing?

i'm 23 years old, and my only phish shows were deer creek 04 and coventry.

what can I say, I was late picking up on this shit. i was into 311 and Sublime for years and never gave phish a chance. i guess thats my fault, but i'm not upset about it anymore(i was upset about it in august 2004).

i fell in love with the music and the scene both. i never toured, so therefore I never saw the negative side of things... some of my friends have toured for years and years, and by the stories they tell, boy it seems like shit can get ugly.

if they come back, i get to take my wife and baby to their first shows, and take them on their/our first tour. thats right, i said TOUR. i need a vacation/change of scenery. whats wrong with touring anyway? i'll flip burritos, grilled cheeses and pizza breads all day long if it means i get to walk half a mile into a venue where the boys are playing that night.

run with your crew and be good. everybody that makes the scene what it is will be there, and unfortunately that includes losers that ruin the mood occaisionally. so be good. enjoy yourselves, and look out for your brothers and sisters.

looking forward to seeing all of you there.

They keep getting closer and closer just like the last haitus until they will finally announce it. As long as they all are back on and into it and focused then it will be unreal. I truly believe they can re-become what they once were at their peak in the late 1990's. Virtually every show for those stretches is great from start to finish. Not all are sick, but there were very very few "bad" or even "just ok" shows. When the focus strayed from the music, most obviously post-haitus, the number of less impressive shows grew. I think they all know that and they all would come back with the intentions of getting back to nasty jams, deep funk, and energy pumping shows they all once knew. Count me in, this could be the shit.

As for Phish no longer being able to play Red Rocks, that tragedy led to one good thing... anyone can know get into the parking lots. Through that year, you had to have a ticket just to get into the parking lots, which is why there were so many people in Morrison. That has been changed, and everyone is now allowed into the lots, ticket or no ticket. So, let's keep our fingers crossed, and if Phish decides to tour again, the venue will bring them back for a 4 night stand.

I don't think it will happen. Not for a loooooong time at the least. Trey and drugs is not why phish broke up I just don't think the chemistry was there anymore. The band got tired of playing the same stuff and the new stuff was not that great. I miss the band and all the fun. And I have been bored for 4 1/2 years now. But hey could happen soon then I will give my nipples nuts and butt cheeks. Yes indeed

Drewski---Actually, those Phish shows at Red Rocks were VERY SOLD OUT, while SCI, other than last year had a hard time selling the venue out...I've seen SCI there everytime they've played there since 2001, and most of the shows had about 15 empty rows at the rear of the venue....They definitely did not bring the same crowds with the same enthusiasm as Phish did...And again, I'm not the biggest Phish fan, but to say that SCI brought the same crowds is an extreme overstatement.

Kirkbrew- Post hiatus for the most part was not nearly as good as pre-hiatus. I feel fortunate to have seen some awesome post-hiatus shows. Chula Vista, CA 2003...listen to DWD. Listen to the Twist from Vegas 2004 and tell me your face doesn't melt. The Miami run in '03 was sick as all hell... Even the Camden show before Coventry was pretty sick. Listen to Sneakin' Sally. Overall, I don't think post-hiatus was bad. At least most of the shows I saw. The festivals after Big Cypress were all pretty lacking though.

I'd definitely think that it would be worthwhile to catch a glimpse into what one of the most legendary bands of all time would have to offer. I would hope, though, that this time, they would have the good sense to make a declaration about what kind of atmosphere they are trying to create. While some might believe that it's a bit hypocritical for one of the "headiest" bands to make some kind of public service announcement, it would be refreshing to see a band that could vocalize their intent to do better for themselves. How would one go about this? I'd say one good way would be through song. And I say, if certain groups of people couldn't dig that Trey and the band are trying to stay clean, then those people aren't any kind of Phans for Phish, anyhow. Furthermore, it would be nice if a few more bands had the balls to call out the bullshit that has been happening on the scene. If you wanna have a good time, that's your prerogative. Just do it with some discretion and regard for your fellow man.

I would like to take a moment to ask all the posers, lot lizards, tour rats, wannabe gangstas, and all around douchebags to find something else to do when Phish returns to the stage. There are many reasons why Phish stopped touring and a key reason, according to a personal conversation I had with a band member said that the scene around the band was getting out of hand. Yes, Trey and other band members had some issues to deal with but the fact that they all spent more time dealing with managing the circus that followed the band than they did in rehearsal took a major toll on them. If you are a true music lover, and love and respect Phish for what they do on stage, as opposed to what they generate in the parking lot, by all means welcome home. For those of you out there that have nothing better to do than sell No2 and break into cars, just stay home. You should have plenty of opportunities to "rage the lot" at Bonnaroo. Long Live Phish!

The only copy I ever had of 8/6/96 was a tape that I lent to someone so they could hear it. Remember TAPES?!?! Wish I could post it on nugs.net for all to hear, but alas : ( The one thing that people haven't really addressed is the fact that it will be nearly impossible to "Tour" with anyone nowadays without being independantly wealthy. In Fall of 94, I could fill up my car for like $15 and score a ticket in the lot for $15 as well. For me to come up with the $30 I needed to see the next show meant I only had to sell like 1 1/2 - 2 cases of beer in the lot. Try selling alcohol from show to show and see how fast you get busted by these new corporate sponsored venue's aggressive security. Do you know how many Grilled Cheeses you'd have to sell to fill up your car with gas OR even afford a ticket these days??? Gimme a break. The lot community does not exist anymore to support "touring." As fed up with some of the Spangers (spare changers)& Lot Rats as I got, sadly that was part of the mystique of running away with the circus. Who the hell could afford to see more than just a couple of close proximity East Coast shows back to back? Unless you've saved up, the reality of "Touring" is as Dead as the Fat Man. RIP JERRY

Okay, so... Sorry to rain on everyones parade, but no one has considered that touring, as WE knew it, is going to be basically impossible for fans nowadays. $4.00 a gallon?! C'mon! The window has closed. I'd see the band in my home town if they played. I just don't see these kids being able to do it like they would want to, like WE DID! ;) Also, the band won't be "raking it in" as some would predict... Without the touring fans(I am not talking about the crusty lot folk, the FAN$) they will be forced into smaller theatres.(maybe not a bad thing) Besides the fact, most of us have moved on. Many fond memories though...I still respect "the phish from Vermont". I just don't see a large "built-in" audience in these cities that is going to sell out the big places. Hopefully they can prove me wrong. Even if they do, it won't be the financial windfall they might expect. Hell, how are people buying gas and groceries as it is? Who has discretionary income anymore? Aren't we all kinda in survival mode currently? Still, an interesting about-face from Trey. Godspeed.

My point is that a lot of People would come from very far away to see a reunion project from PHish. Or.. Phish throws down 2 festies a year One for New Year (somewhere in CA) and One in Maine. Then Hit 3-days run in CHICAGO, for the mid-west, NY MGS or PA Spect. For east coast. ect.....

I mean dave mattews still tours at the same venues Phish did soo Why wouldn't Phish be able to do it. If any Band can pull it off it's Phish....

Holy shit.. i didnt know that the "This is redrocks, this is the edge" quote was at this show! Maybe I do have this.

My 2Cents. It amazes me on how many of you never got to see Phish. Am I really that old (32). I have seen them a shit ton. I acutally started to loose intrest when "Billy Breathes" came out. I felt that that album wasnt as groundbreaking as say "Picture of Nectar" or "Rift".

But I would never say that "They will not be as good", speaking of experience you only keep growing as a musician. Keep learning and getting better.

Just some Festies from our beloved phellows would be alright with me!

hate to say it...but this is getting old. I've been over it for a while now. I too get my hopes up whenever something like this is announced, but what was really announced? nothing. I'm glad trey feels bad for some of the stupid crap he said after the break up. Who remembers this little quote, "rock music is the servant of the drug culture"? Can someone who is trying to be clean and sober become a servant of the drug culture again? I mean these are years of our lives passing by, without our band, that we can't get back. I guess when i'm 60 and they decide to come back it will be too late. If it was a "cultural timing thing"....then i think their time ran out. I'll believe it when i see it, but right now, i'm done holding my breath.

hey wags in carolina,

I don't want to sound negative, but did you seriously think the curtain was a strong way to finish the bands last set? I mean the song is ok but def, should've played something with more heart. Hell I hate fluffhead, but I would have much rather heard that then sad ass curtain. Just my opinion. But it will be nice to see the boys get back together even it is just to hear a rendition of curtain or fluff. I just knew when I was sitting on the side of the hill in Coventry that there was no way it could end like that, and hopefully from the looks of Trey's comments, it wont have to.

And to all of you OLDER cats that think Phish has done the best they can do, then stay home with you memories, bc I know for a fact that no musician has played their best in the past. Their best is always yet to happen. So as long as the boys are still alive, they will continue to get better.

Do it right boys. Take your time Trey. Your real Phans aren't going anywhere.

Msd13886669 with all due respect I do feel Curtain With was a good choice, "please me have no regrets" is a fitting line. And it is full of the heart in which you speak of. The very first Phish Live recording has a tasty version from 95 I think you would enjoy. As for hating Fluffhead I just can't agree with you there, I love Fluffhead and we tried very hard to get Trey to play it at "IT" although he shot us down. I do feel that those who don't want to tarnish there prior Phish Live memories should not go. It will not be the same, it will evolve into some thing different. As every year of Phish or any band who has played for long periods of time. Your not going to hear 95 Phish again or 97 Phish again or 94 phish again. But won't it be great just to hear them again. If you can say yes then your waiting with excitement about the possibilities that might come up. But the Curtain has some heart man you gotta listen. :)

I created an account just to comment on this (no offense, Jambase, I use you all the time, but it's yet to be personal)...

AMAZING!

runaround: "I ALWAYS new that they would be back....trust me they will be. Im already there!"

I've felt the exact same way since August 16th, 2004 in the early morning. Musicians don't create music of this caliber only to look back on it and shrug.

There's a whole ton of things to indicate that what we've all been waiting for is on its way, not the least of which is this very article - I think someone who is aware, aware enough of the things around him to be able to improvise with 3 other musicians the way Trey is, is aware enough to know what kind of repercussions releasing a statement like this will have. I hope he reads this comment board (I'm sure they know about this website) and sees that the people who started waiting on 8/15/04 are the people who are still waiting, not on Panic tour (again, no offense).

I only mean to express the absolute most joyously happy and positive emotions about any and all things musical, because, soon, the world of music will have its be-phlippered-phoursome back...

It's hard to tell what a show now would be like, but hey, it'd still blow your mind more than most other bnds around today. Like most shows in the past, you'd probably get some moments where they aren't quite hitting their stride, but then......when they are, melt that face on away! I bet they could give some sonds a new life now, with some interesting changes.....hope it happens

Along the same lines, Red Rocks is one of the greatest venues in the country no doubt. Although after seeing Phish at both Red Rocks and The Gorge, my vote would go the the Gorge. You are truly "in the middle of nowhere" and everyone is allowed to camp right on site which makes it sort of a mini festival like setting. not to mention the unbelievable scenery.

How can you say that about Curtain not being a fittng song? And secondly if THE BAND comes back it wont be a reunion show it will be full on touring maybe wellmore than 2003 gave us. I just saw MIKE and PAGE together on stage at Howlin Wolf in NOLA and I just been gettin the feelin its about to happen. New Years at Cypress and a coast to coast winter tour announced in August is my hopeful prediction. Mopeds on tour instead of busses? Whatever gets you there man.

As far as venues go, I seen em from shoreline to MAine , the gorge is nice (theres a free rest overlook where you can camp out for free if your a broke kids like we were) but the ultimate was DEER CREEK!! In the 95-99 it was unreal. It was my hometown venue so Im biased but come on it was off the chain. Positive vibe , relaxed security, no driving far to sleep, its too bad that if they come back the venue may no longer exist, its being sold

hey, funky - from phunky to funky -- quit hating! admittedly it's not the same velvety-smooth, ball-rockin' tone from the days of old, he's still a dynamite musician - it's just obvious that none of the 4 of them can make music of the same (inter)stellar quality alone as they could together. I don't care how many shows you've seen (I've *listened* to more, I'll bet), it doesn't give you the right to refer to n00bs as "sniveling," and, no matter how much I might agree, it's just pointlessly negative to tell people seeking a new experience to "stay home."

Believe it when you see it, but don't hate on it first. Why should anyone be so viciously negative on a thread that should be about looking forward toward what's to come? Express an opinion - don't force it on us.

Bragging about how many shows you've seen is unfortuante. Any type of reunion would be a gift to anyone who has been moved by the music.

I started seeing them in 91' and I was sad to see them stop, but they're musicians, so the artist inside eventually shines through if one is lucky!

By the way 150+ plus show guy, 283. I'm not bragging. I'm just sayin!

God whats the problem here are there really that many people on this page that whine and cry because "IF" Phish does come back and reform it will allow others to see them play. Is that really the subject of debate here. Not that you enjoy the band, or the songs in which they created. Does it matter the number of shows one has been to, if one knows the history, and has listen to thousands of hours of recordings. I think people are losing the point, the point is the band might reform, and that will bring joy to the band and to its fans. Joy is a good thing is it not?

I agree wags,

it does have heart, and the line is very fitting. That's why I retracted my statement. I also agree with what you said about the future of Phish. I'm not looking to rehash any old times, I want them to be natural and flow with their new energy. I'll love anything these guys do together, and I know it. They're four of the coolest musicians I've seen, and is by far my favorite band in the world. I just don't particularly care for either of those songs. My brother is a HUGE curtain fan and I've always just been bored by page's organ arrangement. As for Fluffhead, I think I'm one of the only Phans that doesn't enjoy that track. But I respect the opposing view point. Good talkin to ya man. Maybe I'll see you when the boys get back together. Hoping for a ten year reunion at the Cypress. It's basically in my back yard.

There is a big enough base of people who have the utmost respect for the band and wish to support them, SHOULD THEY decide to come back. That alone is enough to cancel out all you A-HOLES who have no forgiveness in your hearts for people who make mistakes or lose a bit of sheen from their musical prowess, for lack of practice. Any MUSICIAN knows that, the more you practice, the better you get, PERIOD. And by the way, nobody gives a flying fucking reideer's rump how many shows you've been to or which era you caught them in. That is something that is of personal relevance. I saw one show in the latter part of the 90's. I still love their music and the watermark that it made on my life. I hope that they do get back together. I hope that they do announce their intent to try to keep the scene copeable and I hope all you damn naysayers and smackheads keep your asses home and therefore obsolete as tools to the decline of an otherwise good scene. Thank you!

CARS TRUCKS AND BUSES will have to be billed "MOPEDS SCOOTERS BIKES". To all you kids new to Phish dont worry about some of the hate on here. There will still be people who love the scene and welcome you. I got sick of this same shit in 94-95 when I first started seing them and again in 99. I actually quit going to shows for awhile after summer 99 b/c of the bad vibes ontour. It was a bunch of "hippiecrits" as I liked to call them. People who took a "I am Hippier than thou" attitude and shit on people who dont look dress talk and act just like them. "Now the market stands unfolding with all the wookies and their wares I shuffle by alert but numb to all the glances and the glares!!!!" Trey hit it on the head!!!!

Halloween 2008 Vegas. The SilverBowl has been booked for years and the reservation stillstands. With no Vegoose this year, Superfly needs to keep the late night series going, since fests ticekts sales sucked, and the boys can keep the date at the silverbowl making it a reunion festival. Superfly does the late nights, Phish can be the main draw, everyone wins.

wow words and words we can all sail upon !! Im calling a Free->Horse->Silent-> Stash->Crosseyed Opener!! Im so excited for trey , the boys, the whole community ! I have to agree Touring will be very hard for me, as long as they decide to hit the Buffalo, Rochester area, Albany or Saratoga Springs area ill get my groove on. I definately think that the disease of addiction was talking to trey towards the end. I mean when your priorities are getting high you want to isolate , feel high, and stay home. Ive had my own struggles with heroin the past 5 years and now that ive finally been able to break away from it, I feel great, I feel creative and the first thing I listened to when I got out of rehab ( my 8th one ) was FREE. "I feel the feeling i forgot " gives me chills. I think being surrounded by good positive energy and good solid friends is exactly what Trey needs. Im surprised hes allowed to leave state on probation. When I was on Probation i left state to go see Phish in Cincinatti (2-21,22-03) and if my probation found out i would have been violated , had to serve 4-6 months locked up. Its amazing what ive been through with this addiction, I was completely blinded by it, Ive been homeless, Ive had numerous overdoses Once I was minutes away from death, I stopped breathing and turned blue, luckily my friend called the ambulance and they revived me in time, i learned that night that an uncut nearly pure "sky high" heroin was making its way around buffalo. The paramedics told me that the girl they worked on before got to me didnt make it, they were too late. Life is too precious to roll the dice with. Give me some trey tones and some Kuroda lights and ill be all good !! peace and love and hopefully soon well all be able to share in the funk/space groove.

I really appreciate that the author of this story/blurb chose to post this YEM. I think it represents a period of time for the band where they were intense and focused. It also seems to be a time period that Phish has willfully ignored in the Live Phish series. What is wrong with releasing perfect copies of this show, 4/15-4/18/1992, or even the 1991 Arrowhead shows? They are the best examples of the focus the band lost as they got older.

THE BIG RUMOUR!!! Ok here it comes, sit down and relax, light a pipe and inhale deeply. I was hoping/predicting Big Cypress but the news I'm getting says: SPRING '09!!!!! I wont name names but the person supplying this is involved in the jam band scene in a big way. He gave my friend the nod last time when the hiatus was ending, so hes in the know. Lets all hope he is right. It still would leave Cypress as a option for an openig fest!! And supposedly CovenTry is going to get another TRY. IF it happens lets all hope they start and end with a big throwdown festival.

hey cameronCOCKS...

do you even know how much of a douche bag you sound like? Your one of those people who view everything through your rose colored Grateful Dead glasses. First of all, Phish aint the Grateful Dead BRAH! second of all, the GD died with garcia. All that Ratdog and Phil crap is ok, if you dig refried stale renditions of grateful dead songs which got old about 10 years ago. Don't get me wrong, i love me some GD, but its people like you who need to just shut the hell up and stay the fuck home. You sound like a cry baby...whaa...whaaa ...GD this, Jerry that...whaaa whaaa...ratdog is so friggin awesome...whaaa...whaaa...i cant like a band because they arn't GD related...whaa whaaa...such a retarded world view...whaaa whaaa you aint a rock star unless your GD affilaited..whaaa whaa...hate to break it to you but ratdog pretty much blows chunks (unless kimock is there shredding). Phil is awesome, yes, and stale yes.

OLD FUDDY DUDDY ALERT!!!!

let it be, phish was great, they are done. for those of us lucky enough to see shows from the beginning through 2000, woot. for those that only saw phish post hiatus, i am sorry.

i would give my left nut to relive the summer of 95, but, i can't. nor can anyone. let it be.

hahaha, arguments is great!!!! GD/Phish WOW!!!! indeed they are two different beasts. allow me to list a few reasons why the dead kept goin for 30 years, while phish did not. phish did not go down a "traditional" path as GD did. therefore they needed to maintain a higher level of musicianship if they were to continue performing their "prog rock" songs that incorporate complex harmonies (vocal and intrumental) and odd meters. this they obviously failed to do consistently as anyone who saw post-hiatus shows has to agree with. when phish was on, they blew any other jamband after them completely out of the water, but unfortunately trey's guitar playing and vocals were NO WHERE NEAR where they were between 88-95 (ok, maybe 97). this results in POOR PERFORMANCES of songs that truly require the attention to detail of prog rock.

of course i LOVE the dead and listen to them all the time and by no means am i saying that by playing "traditional" music they were less of musicians or artists. im simply saying that they could continue to play for 30 years because the style of music came straight from the earth and wasnt complicated arrangements that require lots and lots of rehearsing.

that's my theory on the phish downfall and believe me, i hope and pray to see them rip it up like they used to (camden 04 anyone?). i think it's gonna take hard work, but it's possible.

Weve got control towers cause weve got a band and weve got control towers in the band. IT is IT was and as IT was IT will be IT again. .... From the Further Fest to the Phish Concert. BOZO "EASY" KESEY always knew what we thought we forgot for a while. See you all wading in the velvet sea. Set the gear shift... you know the rest.

There are songs on every Phish albums that became staples on tour including Billy Breathes. Nothing will ever match Junta, Rift, and Picture of Nectar for pure energy, but Farmhouse is a solid album. Even Undermind has Mexican Cousin and Pebbles and Marbles. I just hope we can all get tix. It may be madness.
