Headsup that Mike is on Under The Scales next week.

mike who?

I think he's the guy from this Barika band...



Meh. I've heard of him, but he's kinda over-rated. He used to play in this band called Phish that was decent, but last I heard he was wasting his talent away in some group called MGB he formed to honor a car from back in the day. I'll pass.

Apparently he was also turned down to join The Who even though they really needed a bass player.

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

NYT interview with Trey:
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/06/24/magazine/trey-anastasio-phish.html

As far as I can tell, the fan consensus is that it even though the band got back together in 2009, it wasn’t until 2012 or 2013 that it found its mojo. Is that how you see it?

I agree. There was a seriousness to the music starting in 2009 that was based not on fear but on the acknowledgment of the finite nature of things. We’d had a youthful exuberance for so long, and naïve youthful exuberance is what makes rock ’n’ roll great. We were flying high on the wave. Nothing was ever going to stop. Then you wake up in the jail cell. It was a shock to realize how tenuous the whole thing was. And it took until 2013 to find out how to play with risk. Before then I’d been thinking, How do I play music in a risky way when the experience that I went through made me a cautious person?

What’s the answer?

A new and better and deeper and richer point of view: Every concert is the most important. Every song is the most important song. So is every note, and every note is also perfectly imperfect. I’m trying to learn to accept the two sides of the coin. What I thought was the worst thing that was happening to me — when flashing police lights were around me and I was yanked out of my life — turned out to be the single best thing in many ways. Hopefully these lessons and maturity have taken me to a place of staying even more in the moment, and that has resulted in a more breathing, organic kind of improvisation. To my ear it has.

I love the whole interview.  I also love that I am potentially controlling the band…
