Funny that they put Swamp music on there by Skynyrd since it is almost exactly the same as Possum

Just wondering. Do yall know of Phish doing a WSP song or vice versa? I think that would be interesting.

The jambase/phish page is not in realtime. At least it wasn't last night. The tweets are, but most offer no relevant information.

From the road gives real time setlist updates

Totally, was it let the intern choose week? Ac/Dc bag has nothing at all to do with the band Ac/Dc .... you should've dropped some zappa and capt. beefheart, and stop letting the interns write your articles . sorry to be such a hater but the guy above me was right the boat here was missed big time.....sorry

Zappa, Pat Methany, and Genesis.

Also in The Phish Book Mike says his favorite bass player is Phil Lesh. I know the whole Dead/Phish thing is overdone but Trey talked about Garcia and Zappa in his Charlie Rose interview in 2004.

I think David Byrne was lovin' some yay-oh in the Cities video. That dude is geeked out of his mind

They are talking about songs covered on this tour, not overall influences. Read the intro! !seems like some Phish fans have to compete to see who loves/knows the most about band. Its not a competition, its music, love it and each other

Led Zepellin, the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, the Doors, the Velvet Underground, the Who, Herbie Hancock, Rush (ask Fishman, I dunno)...I mean, all four members are students of music. They grew up when amazing music was bountiful, their influences are plentiful. You could go on and on and on, because they never going to stop listening to other music, and therefore they will always be influenced by what they hear in some way.
