PHISH!!!

Do you like PHISH? I sure do.

I've been to 103 shows. Did the full summer tour in 95 (22 shows in 27 days from Idaho to Vermont), and have done every NYE run (except for Miami) since 94 to name a few. I have had so many great times seeing Phish shows, met lots of awesome folks, and heard some of the most intense music I've ever heard!

Lets see here....I guess this thread is for tellin phish stories, recalling favorite shows, songs, venues, etc.

My favorite show was Clifford Ball second night, second set. It was the most amazing set of music I have ever seen them perform. It was perfect from start to finish.

I was lucky to be at both shows where the HOT DOG made an appearance too - I was right below it at Boston Garden NYE 94 (I actually thought it was gonna drop into the crowd right where we were! ), and again at the Millenium show in Big Cypress, I was 5 feet from it when it went by - I hit a big balloon to Page and he hit it back to me!!

I've met them all but Trey. Of course, the one I wanna meet the most.
Page, we met in Boise after the first show in 95. The busses were parked in the lots with the rest of the cars, and he was just chillin and talkin to folks.
Mike, we met as he was riding his bike around the parking lot in Raleigh. He was also very cool and stopped to talk to us for a while.
Fish, well, he was kinda eating lunch with Dave Grippo at the House of Blues in Boston when I met him, so that was a brief encounter.


I miss them a lot now. I really hope Trey gets the help he needs and they get back together eventually. *crosses fingers*

So lets hear some stories, phellow phishheads!

Re: PHISH!!!

I am kind of fond of Phish, although I wasn't one of those who hopped on the Phish-wagon after Jerry died. I have most of their CDs around here somewhere and probably 50-60 hours of live on tape and CD (mostly just what my Dad has given me).

I went to three shows and each time, didn't make it out of the parking lot-- it always seemed to be that kind of scene, though. When I got out of that kind of thing, I lost interest in going to Phish shows (around the time that I got really into Keller Williams). I'll still listen to them every once in a while.


Fluffhead was a man... with a horrible disease...

Wow, I went looking through this thread and found a post by myself that I don't remember making at all:

Interesting, these lists would probably be different now, maybe I'll update. But I promised more lists, so more lists must come. Any suggestions on what ranking to do next? I have a kind of obsession with ranking things...

I always like to see what other people's favorite shows are (either attended or listened to). I would be hard pressed to try to rank my top 5 (or even top 10) though....they were all soooo good.
I know my 2 favorite all time Phish sets that I saw are 8/17/96 Clifford Ball set 2, and 4/3/98 Nassau set 2. Clifford Ball was utter perfection, and Nassau was just absolute insanity to the max.

This sounds like a fun project to elaborate on this weekend.

You do realize that you can almost count the days left til Hampton on your fingers now.

11 DAYS TO GO!!!!!!
