[quote]Sorry, Applenut, I didn't know Phish broke up. Is this true? Living in Hong Kong one doesn't really get the latest news...<hr></blockquote>
Phish broke up a long time ago. At least a year. Seems like it was because Trey was an ass. The minute they broke up he formed his own band and toured.
Anyway, Phish are musically one of the most talented bands ever. They can jam forever, and can always come up with something completely new, and overwhelming. Don't diss them until you hear them live.<hr></blockquote>
as long as it sounds like the grateful dead
I hav heard them live numerous times. You don't need to tell me how Phish sound.
If you want jamming bands that don't just bite off of others like Phish then look towards Gov't Mule, Phil Lesh, Bela Fleck and the Fecktones, etc.
If you asked them to play like Hendrix, they'd play like Hendrix. Play like BB King, they'd play like BB king.<hr></blockquote>
that's stretching it a bit far. good band but they never sound like either of those 2. the best cover I have heard them do is 5:15.
[quote]If you asked them to play like the average, unoriginal 90's rock and roll style band, they'd play just like Pearl Jam.<hr></blockquote>
rather than a Grateful Dead wannabe? Anything is an improvement
And if you asked them to play like Phish, they wouldn't sound like anyone else.<hr></blockquote>
except the Grateful Dead
A memorable band has to be original, and Pearl Jam are not.<hr></blockquote>
yea, that was a good one
