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. 

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:

They should probably just do an awesome fun album this year, instead of trying to pick one of the best-of-all-time/most-inspiring-to-band-members-as-young-men.

trey on phish played covers

Quote
During Phish’s fall and early summer dates, the band covered songs by Neutral Milk Hotel, TV on the Radio and Rage Against the Machine. In the September issue of Relix Trey Anastasio talks about the decision to interpret these compositions as well as other aspects of the group’s June and July shows. With the next leg of the tour beginning tonight in Berkeley at the Greek, we ‘vedecided to share some of Trey’s insight into the process by which these songs made it to the stage. Anastasio acknowledges that the suggestion to cover these groups was his idea, adding, “Sometimes I will just walk in after listening to something on the bus and say “Fish have you heard this tune? have you listened to TV on the Radio? They’re great.” Next thing you know I’m at the computer looking up the lyrics and I will read them and go “this is a great song – oh man, I’d love to sing this song” and then there’s a set up backstage, drums and stuff and the four of us will go over there and we’ll start playing it and if it sounds good, we’ll play it that night. It’s almost like a skill that you learn.”

In the next issue of Relix, Trey Anastasio takes some time to look at the music that the band performed on the first leg of its summer tour. The guitarist’s comments certainly have some bearing on what the group might well do when it kicks off the second leg of its tour this evening. In terms of new, original songs, Anastasio says in part, “I wrote a couple with Tom Marshall and I also have a friend in New York City now, Amanda Green, who’s a Broadway songwriter. She and I have written three songs in the past couple of weeks. We actually just got an email from a band that wants to cover one of them. She and I wrote ‘Burn that Bridge’ and there’s a song called ‘Julie’ that I think we’re going to do on the next leg of the Phish tour. Phish already learned it, but just haven’t done it yet.”

So perhaps “Julie” will makes it debut tonight at the Greek. In the interim, for a bit more on what may follow, check out this additional account on Relix.com.
It's a great day on the interweb, people.

Cool interview though. 

Doesn't sound like the west coast will be getting any extended love anytime soon...

Seemed to me that WFC was heavily rumored (along with Led Zep and King Crimson) before halloween.

I certainly wasn't surprised when the news became official.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.
