There's nothing sadder than an aging hipster. That's why I've been so uncool all these years.

Bummer, Phish is gone for good

As the message from Trey below shows, the band is done for good. It also seems to indicate that the new album must really suck! That really blows cuz I only saw them twice back in, like, 92-93 on college campuses. Never once saw the huge arena tours. I had gotten so much back into them in the past 2 years that I fully expected to see them at the Garden next time they came around...
Looks like I won't get to.

Really sucks, too, because their side projects are not great. They're barely good.

Ah well, I can still buy up all the old LIVEPHISH cd's ... that should satisfy me for a lifetime. A catalog of over 400 different songs (not including variations) and enough available music to listen to for probably a month or two before you'd have to repeat the cycle... who listens to music 24 hours a day, anyway?


Last Friday night, I got together with Mike, Page and Fish to talk openly about the strong feelings I've been having that Phish has run its course and that we should end it now while it's still on a high note. Once we started talking, it quickly became apparent that the other guys' feelings, while not all the same as mine, were similar in many ways -- most importantly, that we all love and respect Phish and the Phish audience far too much to stand by and allow it to drag on beyond the point of vibrancy and health. We don't want to become caricatures of ourselves, or worse yet, a nostalgia act. By the end of the meeting, we realized that after almost twenty-one years together we were faced with the opportunity to graciously step away in unison, as a group, united in our friendship and our feelings of gratitude.

So Coventry will be the final Phish show. We are proud and thrilled that it will be in our home state of Vermont. We're also excited for the June and August shows, our last tour together. For the sake of clarity, I should say that this is not like the hiatus, which was our last attempt to revitalize ourselves. We're done. It's been an amazing and incredible journey. We thank you all for the love and support that you've shown us.

-- Trey Anastasio

That's okay. I'm over it. Having ignored them most of their career, it is no big loss to not have them around any more. 400 songs is plenty.
