o/t If there is any phish fas I hope you heard

Since <nobr>Jeep</nobr> brings in people of all walks of life if any of you are phish fans I hope you heard the news. This is it your last chance to see them this summer. If you havent already I would suggest getting tickets to the coventry show since I beleive all the others are sold out. Let me know if anyone plans to hit either the Ma Tweeter center shows or the Coventry VT show. Certainly a sad time for a lot of people [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img]

Re: o/t If there is any phish fas I hope you heard

Good Riddens,,, Lost my first top to a bunch of jerks attending one of their concerts in Lexington Ky. Least they could have done was stolen the radio out of it so Insurance would have covered it..... Real nice to get off work at 2 am in febuary and have a 20 minute interstate drive home to find someone shreaded your top for you while you...... Besides I met a chunk of the band and well I was not impressed. RANT DONE

Huh, guess you can spell.

Who'd a thunk?

Concerts are tricky... Make sure that you ride with someone who drives an old Blazer that looks like there are several guns somewhere inside. No problems leaving either.

IMHO Phish is a fad. When we hear about Metallica or AC/DC finally calling it quits.... that will truely be a sad day. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: o/t If there is any phish fas I hope you heard

I heard the news yesterday morning and was greatly saddened. As for being a fad, the band has been together for more than two decades and has an enormous following, being one of the largest grossing live acts in the past decade. The outdoor concerts were always a great time. After seeing a plethora of concerts like AC/DC, Metalica and the likes it was always refreshing to go to a phish concert where there were no mosh pits, and hardly ever a hint of anger and animosity in the crowd. Sure, you had to endure tens of thousands of smelly, dread-locked, tree-hugging-earth-pickles dancing as if they were having seizures while standing upright, but it was fun nonetheless. I regretfully will be going to a wedding while they play their last concert. After last years trip to Limestone, ME where it took 17 hours to drive the last 6 miles to Loring AFB, I'm almost relieved to have an excuse not to go.
Anyhow, to those who are fans; have a wonderful time in Coventry. It's been a good ride for the band but the trip has to end sometime. I just hope for your sake that they have adequate porta-johns this year. Otherwise I strongly suggest avoiding the veggie burritos. They are just bad news.

Re: o/t If there is any phish fas I hope you heard

I'll have to say, like em or not they are not a fad. I am not a huge fan, but just because you don't like something does not mean you can discount it for someone else. Any group that can weather over 20 years in the turmoil of the recording business has withstood its fair share of ups and downs. Like em or not, Phish was not a fad.

Re: o/t If there is any phish fas I hope you heard

I agree you can hardly call a band a fad when they
Have over 200 songs half of them not on any studio recording
Have weathered over 20 years as a band together
Had almost no commercial ties whatsoever
And how can you compare them to Metallica when I vaguley remember Metalica going on a massive b*tch fest when people started downloading there cds where as Phish entire fan base revolves around the downloading and sharing of their music
