The Phish legacy at Coachella

When we did Phish we learned a lot from them,” [concert promoter Goldenvoice President Paul] Tollett said. “And when we told them what we do for camping, they said, ‘Oh yeah, that’s nice, we got a way better way.’ They showed us the car camping concept, and how they’re able to keep that safe and fun.”

Mystery Jam Monday Part 45

Posted Apr 11, 2011 12:07 pm by lumpblockclod - 10 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4da2716f, posted in the Audio category (507 listens)

Time for the 45th installment of the Mystery Jam MondayTM series. Hopefully this week will go better than the last eight Mondays, which have seen the Blog get its ass kicked all over Gamehendge. Just like every week, we will be playing for an MP3 download courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. The rules haven't changed: you need to correctly identify the song and the date to win. Post your guess in the comments. One guess per person per day (with the second “day” starting after I post the hint). The hint will come on Tuesday and the answer will be posted on Wednesday. Good luck....

(Very Late) Tuesday Hint: Once again, no hint needed this week.

Wednesday Answer: Congrats to thesloth23 with the quick pick of 7/25/99 "My Left Toe." Though bruised and battered, the Blog will be back on Monday with another Mystery Jam. Until then...

Mike Printup talks up Superball IX

This is going to be the festy of the east, and we all know that. Come prepared, get here early. Get here as early as you can. I think we will have the campground open Thursday morning, so it gives you a day and a half before they even start performing. Hit the town- we've got a nice huge Wal Mart in town, so you can stock up on all the good stuff you need for the weekend. Bring your party shoes and let's go!"

As it has for the past 42 weeks, the Blog returns with another Mystery Jam to confound and confuse. Maybe. Possibly. Who can say? It's a rare occurrence that the Blog emerges victorious, but just like VCU-Kansas, that's why they play the games. Just like every week, we will be playing for an MP3 download courtesy of our friends at LivePhish.com / Nugs.Net. The rules haven't changed: you need to correctly identify the song and the date to win. Post your guess in the comments. One guess per person per day (with the second “day” starting after I post the hint). The hint will come on Tuesday and the answer will be posted on Wednesday. Good luck....

Tuesday Hint: There's a pretty good hint in the comments.

Wednesday Answer: 12/7/95 "Mike's." As others have said in the comments, lisen to the whole thing -- the whole show, actually -- if you've never heard it before. Congrats to FauxPaxFauxReal for being the first to get it. Until Monday...

Wednesday Answer: Congrats to Choda for being the first to get the 11/2/98 "Tube" (technically listed as Tube Jam in our setlists, but the judges are going to accept "Tube"). See you all on Monday for the next MJ...

Watkins Glen a go?

"Yeah, I'm taking my son phishing this weekend," Watkins Glen International President Michael Printup said. "I can't help it if I can't spell."

Printup said there was no deal in place yet.

"We're talking to a promoter, trying to get a deal done," he said. "We'll be talking over the next two or three days and then hopefully we can get a deal and have something to say."

Fishman on mentor Joe Morello (1928-2011)

Posted Mar 16, 2011 2:18 pm by jackl - 0 comments Link: http://phi.sh/b/4d80fedf, posted in the Quote category

I had three drum lessons when I was 13 to learn how to read from a guy named Dave Hanlon in Syracuse. The only other lessons I've ever had were from Joe and they were 15 years apart. I went to him in '09 for the second one. I kind of knew this was coming after leaving that lesson. I'm very sad about this. My entire rudimentary practice routine has come from him. The last lesson I had with him was basically a confirmation that everything he had told me 15 years earlier was right and that I should stay on that track. What he taught me was literally the foundation of everything I will ever do on the drums and the value of having the confidence of knowing the instruction I received from him is as sound as it is can not be over stated. I owe him for correcting my mistakes, putting me on a right path and keeping me on it. Amazing. I am so grateful!"
