looks like there's more to his story:

Quote
Musician Trey Anastasio of Phish:

"I grew up in central NJ and Philadelphia was my home-away-from-home. I have vivid memories of the Spectrum and will miss it deeply. I saw my first arena rock and roll show there Ė (Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon) and saw my first Stanley Cup game there (Flyers/Sabres). I was also fortunate to have the opportunity to perform there a dozen or so times as a member of Phish. Those shows were as exciting and memorable for me as any I ever performed. I just loved everything about the place. The folks who own the Spectrum extended numerous invitations for us to play in the Wachovia Center, but I said I didnít want to leave the Spectrum until the Flyers won the Cup again. I guess now Iíll have to reconsider Ė assuming, of course, that Iím ever invited back! Rest in Peace, Spectrum."
