The Phish obsession bestows something inestimably valuable upon the phan, something akin to everlasting youth. Granted, most fans prefer it that way, in that they remain underground, our special thing, though even that fades with each passing year, as the band continues to grow, the exposure widens, pop culture permeates and more noobs (rookies) are absorbed into the fold. Yesterday I was sent a link to Stuart Henderson's impassioned defense of the jam band Phish on Huffington Post.
Of course, who really knows what it all means? Just one obsessive Phish fan can annoy you to death.
Sorry you don’t get it. still, i bet being in Jimmy Buffet's band is pretty relaxing and the money is probably sweet.
It’s real. Some lyrical styles work best when all they do is make sense; they don’t stand out, and that’s valid. Jason Mraz fans.

Why so bad?

Listen to their "Big Pimpin," with all of its soft edges, jazzy guitar licks, and total lack of punch.
There is nothing ordinary here. Bad vibes. what else can you say other than "sorry dude, your favorite band is a dick"?
And yes, there is abuse. Stereotypes abound and make easy fodder for ridicule, as Phish-haters mock the hippies and the lovable, nerdy rock band they revere. If you’re that self-absorbed then I feel sorry for you. The tongue-in-cheek absurdity of Phish, balanced by their Herculean prowess as musicians and composers, is the antidote to the overly-serious lyrical and artistic drudgery of too many other artists. Pollak, always with ideas spinnin’ round, has recently been working on new material with Trey.
It’s just an album with a bunch of great songs on it, plain and simple. Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation. “But that’s why you go to friends for advice in the first place; you trust them. It's a red flag when the whole group is wearing shorts and flip-flops, it's a redder flag when at least two of the songs were about Jimmy Buffett, in addition to the Buffett covers. It's a fairly well-reasoned piece that touches on all the major points Phish fans use when defending their favorite band: that they're masterful musicians possessed of an irreverent sense of humor, phenomenal improvisational chops, and a legion of devoted fans united by a truly grassroots network of message boards and tape trades.
DMB always plays three shows at the Gorge in WA every August and all the fratty beer pong dudes at the lolcollege I work at seem to be way into this, enough that the phrase "Dave at the Gorge" is a major douchebag signifier.
― Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 5 August 2009 14:46 (eleven years ago) link. And then there are those articles, brimming with vitriol and contempt, which trash Phish.
The message we carry is that we can still live very fun and full lives that involve live music and do it in a responsible manner with respect to the environment and our personal situations”.
An admin from the Phellowship named Roger P. commented to me that “…in the beginning, only a few members would be found hanging around the table at the show during set break. Mike Gordon follows suit.
The whole scene. i went to 6 of the shows mentioned.
But as a group they seem to have extracted only the least compelling elements of them for their own music. ― tulsa anti-juggalo league (M@tt He1ges0n), Thursday, 23 July 2009 18:00 (eleven years ago) link. To be crazy about a band, a relevant band, long past adolescence, is life-giving. hmm....let me consult with my agent...just a second.....Yes. It seems pretty harmless. So far, we’ve distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way. Is this the essence of Phish and are they a drug band? ― myndbloom, Friday, 24 July 2009 00:33 (eleven years ago) link, ― xhuxk, Friday, 24 July 2009 00:41 (eleven years ago) link.
(I love you, Sir Paul, but "The Long and Winding Road" was, and remains, some bullshit.). I made it through maybe three minutes before I had to swap it out for an actual Jay-Z record. 5 years ago all the dmb haters woulda piled on here.
Which is wrong. ― "he said...all things passantino the night" (omar little), Thursday, 23 July 2009 20:30 (eleven years ago) link. And then STAY with him. I don’t understand how you guys take that, y’all paid the same price for a ga ticket (unless after market) stand where you want to stand. Again, are there drugs and the associated problems?
What a bunch of freaks we are, eh? ― the sideburns are album-specific (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Thursday, 23 July 2009 20:11 (eleven years ago) link. Something that is cliché betrays a lack of original thought, and the act of hating Phish does just that. Somewhere along the line, these wet blankets somehow surmised that it was the thing to do, that merely passing on something that wasn’t your taste was not enough. They affect this carefree love-and-brotherhoodness, but they've got Mommy and Daddy's money to spend traveling around the country to concerts, and when they gather in groups they get all Asperger's about remembering exactly what songs led into what other songs on the third night in Denver in '99 or whatever. Phish fans can be really nice, and like to share water and other supplies, but they do take that ridiculous music awfully seriously.

The Dude of Life, an indispensable aspect of Phish’s extended core, cherishes Phish’s apartness and holds that their wonderful peculiarity is what keeps the secret stealthily and healthily separate and apart from the diluted, and deluded, masses.
It’s a fruitful relationship. All of those things happen to be true.
Predictably, many cannabis-friendly fans have ascribed their own meaning to these existential lyrics, declaring them a statement of support for pot legalization and a cue to light up. haha yeah none of those college dudes at dmb shows drink i guarantee you that. Trey’s riffs are phenomenal, on par with the greatest guitarists of all time. Still, upon closer inspection, Phish’s lyrics, many of them penned by bandleader and guitarist Trey Anastasio‘s writing partners, the aforementioned Tom Marshall and Steve Pollak, at times reveal themselves to be deeply meaningful and poignant, if not enigmatic. No doubt about it.
I definitely felt that some advice I was getting from my closest pals wasn’t the right advice.
I’m into that.
Dangerous use is certainly not condoned by the band. The variety and breadth of the Phish catalogue is astounding. Among the new progeny a recently minted gem named Cartwheels, gracefully debuted in a raw and poignant acoustic performance by Anastasio at The New Yorker Festival in October and appearing on the Trey Anastasio Band’s recent release Paper Wheels. Started off rocking with chalk dust, then cars trucks buses and I thought ok I can do this as I was literally freezing.
