I certainly hope Guy Forget is not an omen of things to end again........

kind of interesting it only gets played in ONE very small sector of the country.

seems like the overall hate has dissipated
I just haven't listened to the shows yet  :wink:






im sure i can find something to nitpick when i go back and listen again, but the bottom line is that i havent yet left 3 consecutive 3.0 shows w/ so little to complain about.

Come Together was fairly awful.

Better?    :-D

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.

I'm sure it was fun in person, but on tape it's fairly embarrassing.

fun, sure, but also the low point of the show.  thankfully he finished it up and started twist instead of following the 3.0 formula of having a 3rd song slowdown in the 2nd set.

Well, I don;t think any of us would have been able to play Come Together at all without having ever practiced it...At least they went with it when the riff popped up spontaneously and took a chance...that said, it is pretty cringe worthy but at least they took the risk and at least they did not beat it into the ground.....

I thought they could have stopped it after the chord drop in the first verse and it wouldn't have been as bad.

I'm with Caravan.  I love seeing Phish take risks and this was no different -- spontaneity like that is why I see phish
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.
