Great interview.  It really confirms that Exile was the perfect album choice at this point in their career.

Makes me wonder about 10/31/10...

gordo's desire for a funkier Phish will take off during summer tour, peaking with a Meters s/t set on 10/31/10.
I hate every band except phish.

No thanks.  Phish is not funky.

Truth.

They got some funk, but not nearly enough to consider covering the Meters.

Ehhhhhh....  I don't know about that.


If Trey would turn off his overdrive and decide to use his neck pickup again.........     then I think Page's experience with PBS could really allow them to lock-in deep again.  I know that I, personally, wouldn't be opposed to the re-emergence of the 1997 min7-chord funk jams again.

I don't know, dude. I saw Page with PBS and they ran circles around him. Not that it was bad at all, just that he is no Neville... and Gordo is no Porter... and don't even get me started with Fish... Party Time is as close to New Orleans funk as Phish gets. I'd hate to see them attempt a Meters album on Halloween. I fear it would just fall too flat.

you really think so? 




Regardless, either way, my vote will always be for Pink Floyd's "Animals".  I'd also toss in votes for Meddle and Wish You Were Here, but I'm not sure that Trey would be able to pull off any of Gilmour's lap-steel slide histrionics, which are absolutely necessary for One of These Days and Shine On You Crazy Diamond Pt. 2.

I'd say 11/2/98 pretty much ensures another Pink Floyd album won't be played.

i'd like to see them do something 70's / 80's prog-y that gets back to their roots of doing tough compositions w/ open ended jamming. 


but i'd more likely expect them to do something straight up rocking, like led zeppelin or something.

i wonder if we will see one of the 99 albums that were "killed off" appear as a halloween cover in the future....

I'm sure they were seriously considering a few of them..
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

If it's MGMT this time I'm quitting Phish.

I'm really surprised they have not nailed a Yes album yet. Trey has teased Yes jams like mad his entire career. Page would have the vocals nailed. And Gordo's bass would fit like a glove. It's coming......or a Zeppelin album  :wink:
