Phish discuss a number of topics in the latest issue of Rolling Stone
Phish discuss a number of topics in the latest issue of Rolling Stone.
In the latest issue of Rolling Stone Magazine Phish is the subject of an in depth profile. All four members of the band discuss a bevy of topics. They really open up about the circumstances that led to the break-up in 2004.
I did not realize how bad things had gotten between the band members. Page and Trey went a long period without even speaking. Page goes on to explain he had reservations about the reunion. McConnell explained that he has always felt like the odd man out since joining the band in 1984 until 2004. “I wasn’t sure I wanted to fire it up again. I was cautious,” McConnell said. And after “heavy conversations” with Trey the two talked through their issues and those previous underlying feelings are all gravy since Vermont's finest reunited in 2009. Fishman went on to share how he felt it was bush league to tell his best friends he needed a break from touring, just to start touring with his band. The feature covers a lot of ground including the boundaries they set up before getting back together. Phish would play no more than 50 shows a year to be able to devote time to family and solo efforts, they would ditch the backstage party at the “Betty Ford Clinic” and leave the venue immediately after the show and they entered a “No Analyze” pact to keep personal thoughts regarding their performances to themselves. The last rule came after being hypercritical of each other’s playing over the years began to wear on the members – though it also prevents positive chatter as well.
They talked in depth about the making of “Big Boat” . Trey and Mike both expressed regret that Gordon’s song “Let’s Go” did not make the album.

Amazon Announces the cast for their Upcoming Grateful Dead T.V. Show.
This was my April Fool's Joke!
Amazon just released the cast members that will play the Grateful Dead band members in their upcoming show about the band's life. I am not an acting coach but I must admit there are more than a few head scratchers. Before we announce the cast, one odd moment actually delayed the production team from casting the respective roles of the show. When executive producer and GD member Bobby Weir insisted on playing Jerry Garcia. The uncomfortable week of dealing with this unrealistic request came to an end when Bill Walton pointed out to Bobby that he has in fact been playing that role already since Jerry untimely death in 1995. One thing Bob was adamant about was picking the actor to play him. He insisted on 80's child star Corey Feldman, Bobby was quoted of saying "Just watch "Dream a Little Dream" 1 threw 6 if you think he does not have the chee…
Some As#hole Screamed "Free Bird" at a Recent Bob Dylan Show. The only actual news is Bob obliged and played a note-perfect rendition of the dueling guitar solo in Lynyrd Skynyrd's Rock Anthem. Watch!
Bob Dylan has never met a cover he did not like. He has incorporated countless tunes by many artists in his live shows since the early sixties. Ironically, the Never Ending Tour is supporting Dylan's latest release Fallen Angels which is his second installment of Frank Sinatra classics. I have had the pleasure of seeing Dylan live well over a hundred shows and witnessed him cover everybody from The Grateful Dead to Warren Zevon and all genres in-between. But I never thought I would hear the Great One cover " Free Bird". Of course, some asshole yelled to hear it or be funny. Hell, maybe he was trying to impress a date and had a low I.Q. Whatever the reason he yelled it, is less fascinating than why Dylan played it. I think he finally got sick of hearing song…
