Never got them at all....or WSP....I know they are suppose to have some kind of connection to the dead and the ABB but the difference is in the quality of the song writing.

For the most part jam bands lack quality songs and they become vehicle for improvisation. The Dead the ABB..Little Feat...Santana and other improvisational bands first had great songs with great lyrics and the jams enhanced an already quality song with great arrangements. I've only been exposed through shows and there isn't a song I would want to listen to over and over.....I had a 2 week tour and my band wanted to listen to phish for most of the tour.....I got plenty of exposure....and I don't remember a single song from any of it....I guess it must be generational......although I like Sinatra and I didn't grow up on him....Great songs are what its about for me....guitar solos now a days are a dime a dozen.....

Not a Phish fan but could not resist the line about Santana being a band with "great lyrics". Have you heard Carlos's lyrics recently. Trite would be an understatement. Great guitarist with a great sense of melody but his lyrics....oh vey.

Oh, and old Phish thread. Was someone phishing?? I'll play:

Phish are the best cover band I've ever seen. Check out their halloween shows. Back in the day, I saw them cover Zappa, which is no small feat. But as for their own stuff, meh.

With all due respect, I beg to differ. They can't hold A CANDLE to the Mule, just to name one.
