I finally have something to write about! Even though most of you probably do not care, I would still like to congratulate Phish on receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award at last night’s Jammy’s at the Washington Mutual Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. To the surprise of some, all four members (Trey Anastasio, Mike Gordon, Page McConnel, Jon Fishman) were present to accept the award, and to the disappointment of many they did not reunite to play for the crowd. However, in tribute to their success and the imprint they made to the music world, the Headcount Allstars (consisting of members from Umphrey’s McGee, Disco Biscuits, the Duo, and String Cheese Incident) covered four Phish songs to end the awards show. I am sure the crowd went crazy simply because of the band’s presence, I know I would have. This with the combination that Trey just announced he will be playing a solo acoustic set at the Newport Musi Festival in August (his first billed show in over 17 months), might lead to even bigger news (reunion anyone?). If there are any Phish phans that read ATG make yourselves known!
Well, I like Phish. So there.
Occasional reader, first time poster. Phish phan since 1990. Nice that they were recognized by the community. Sounds like it was a fun gig too.
