This sucks.....
Who's the Marmar? I'm the Marmar!!!

If John Medeski was my church organist I would NEVER miss a Sunday....

Phish doesn't write beautiful music...the beautiful music happens after the written parts.

<gainesvillegreen> now, if they could get their sound to be as good as the lights, we'd have a band hee-yah!!

Music is what feelings sound like.

Was about to post the same. Huge bummer.

"Tony never played a bass fill in his life." - Trey

I can't say enough about his pocket groove and how much he made my feet move over the years. Seemed like the sweetest guy, too.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Sucks, but I will say that the Beacon Jams now serve as a nice summation of his time with Trey. 

RIP
Quote from: Trey Anastasio
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.

Man, talk about a big loss. Guy was a rock, with a solid groove.
You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.

This sucks. He was a great player that really got me grooving.
"I used to be 'with it', but then they changed what 'it' was and now what I'm with isn't 'it' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me"
You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

Bummer. He was a super talented musician and laid the such a solid foundation for Trey to play over.
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.
