Looking back at the epic 4 day weekend Phish just gave us, I have thought of a few ways it could have been an even more epic dance party.
– Let Mike and Fish start more songs; especially songs like Ghost. Trey scratching out the beginning feels so abrupt and abrasive, relative to how smooooth Mike and Fish could make a transition. This also goes for Light–if they could find a way for Trey to not start Light, it would make it the ultimate jam vehicle. A song that is easily entered and exited. I also wish Page and Fish started the Possum that came out of light. Think of how cool a slow, extended build up from them two would have been with Trey eventually joining in.
– They should have played Ghost instead of 2001 for the MJ tribute; The open-endedness could have fueled something much larger. Also, then I could have titled that show’s review “THE GHOST OF MICHAEL JACKSON”–Now, that would be epic!
Exactly how I was dancing during 2001—->>
