2nd place behind the Eagles.

Oh, so much respect I lost for Stewart for playing with that clown.

A few years ago, open-minded guy that I am, I saw Phish play at Radio City Music Hall. I can honestly say it was much, MUCH worse than I expected. A truly soulless and plodding rhythm section, the keyboard playing doing these irritating ornate filigrees... I remember thinking Trey Anastasio had some interesting moments, though. He's certainly shaggy-head-and-shoulders above his bandmates.

Aside from their fanbase, they really have very little in common with the Dead. I don't really understand intense Dead-hatred. Again--totally annoying fans, and a lot of pointless noodling and dicking around. I'd probably never be able to enjoy a whole live show. But "Workingman's Dead" is a great album, with a lot of the qualities that I think many people on this board look for in music.

Pointless.
Crap.

Never got it.

But I watched the documentary, and now I don't hate them. As human beings creating music. TA's diatribe about the Grateful Dead and Boston is just grand.

And: occasionally I like to get into a band when it pisses my friends and loved ones off. Phish will do the job nicely.

But in any case, I never got it.

And I don't mind American Beauty or Workingman's Dead. In fact, they are arguably great records.

OK.

I have never heard a note of Phish' music. I have read much about them. I hear they are fucking hippies. Therefore, in my simple, judgemental, book, they are fucking stinking fucking scumbags, and they deserve fucking shooting. Fucking jamming hippie fucking scum. They should be killed. Why does my personal right wing consist solely of one very simple prejudice against hippies? I don't know. All I know is nothing has come along to change my fascist little mind. DIE YOU DIRTY FILTHY STINKING HIPPIES, DIE. I'm sure they love their mum like I do mine.

i believe what we can expect next is for johnnyape to come over on a boat and hand them all smallpox blankets, and then exterminate them and steal all their shit and such. bravo, fascist!

Phish were just about as crap as you can get. Even worse- Phish fans. But they're broken up now. So it's ok.

Grateful Dead. Hmm.When I bought the 1000 Hurts LP, I thought "Huh. Looks a little bit like Dick's Picks." Then that joke on the playout groove:

What's orange and looks good on hippies?


Fire.

I was at a party this weekend whilst on tour and I guess I was standing next to their keyboard player. I didn't know. Sorry about not cockpunching him, guys. Maybe next time.

Why does everybody keep talking about the Dead?

Phish are crap. The thing that always gets me about them is that they can't really play. Their time is atrocious and they usually sound like they just didn't bother learning their parts. And they can't sing. Or write songs. And they cover songs for absolutely no reason and make even good songs sound terrible. Truly artless crap.

Wait, wait, maaaan...I saw them at Red Rocks back in '92. They were groovin' out their tunes while they were all jumpin' on trampolines, man. It was like they were bouncin' around and my mind was openin' up. They can play for sure, and they don't neeeeeed to learn parts, dude. It's all just flowin' through. It flows. They play my brain like a kaliedoscopic daydream.

CRAP.

The best thing about Phish is, well, nothing.
But I digress. Please continue with the squirrel circuit semantic debate.
