dndjp My first ever show. I was 15 years old and thought I knew what music sounded like. Good music anyways. I was way off. I was now introduced to improv in such a profound way. I heard the dead before but this was different. (No taking away from the Giants The Grateful Dead!) the boys had something different about them. There were a few technical issues but they played right thru like nothing even happened. I didn't live that far from The Chance. But was ultimately shocked and taken back by the culture that surrounded the band. It was one hell of a night for a 15 year old kid. Watching Jaime play the dig was enough for me to go out and learn how to circular breath. Still play it till this day. I look at their tour schedule back then and it's crazy. So many shows in so many places. I was hooked from that night on. Toured many years with them. Some of the greatest times of my life. Experiences that will ride with me to the end. It's like I told my one friend. One show and your hooked. Back then you never knew what antics they were going to do. Thank you Phish on demand for bringing some of the old school shows. The shows that started it all. Well almost lol. To a 15 year old kid they did. I was lucky to meet Mike many times. Trey twice. Fishman like 5 times. And Page a hand full of times as well. All down to earth individuals. Mike actually gave me a ride with his golf cart at the Clifford Ball. Still have the photos. And I have to agree with the other person above ^^. Watching Trey play is like watching a hand of Spaghetti fingers fly thru frets like a honey badger. It's insane!!!! Thank you Phish for expanding my mind to what music is. To play by ear is the most magical way to play. I can go to every show and I'll hear a different version of the same song every night. Not like those jukebox Hero's!! That's boring. My kids are now getting up there in age where they can listen and hear the differences that I point out. I don't know how much longer you guys can go but hopefully it's enough for the future generations to hear. Once again thank you Phish OD. For bringing these obscure shows to light.
