Phish Phinished?

#319561 3 months, 3 weeks ago
I received this email the other day. Not sure if it is true or an April fools joke. Anyone else heard anything?

AN ANNOUNCEMENT FROM TREY

Last Friday night, I got together with Mike, Page and Fish to talk openly about the strong feelings I've been having that Phish has run its course and that we should end it now while it's still on a high note. Once we started talking, it quickly became apparent that the other guys' feelings, while not all the same as mine, were similar in many ways -- most importantly, that we all love and respect Phish and the Phish audience far too much to stand by and allow it to drag on beyond the point of vibrancy and health. We don't want to become caricatures of ourselves, or worse yet, a nostalgia act. By the end of the meeting, we realized that after almost thirty-one years together we were faced with the opportunity to graciously step away in unison, as a group, united in our friendship and our feelings of gratitude.

So Denver will be the final Phish shows. For the sake of clarity, I should say that this is not like the two hiatuses, which was our last attempt to revitalize ourselves. We're done. It's been an amazing and incredible journey. We thank you all for the love and support that you've shown us.

Do you think Phish heads like when they cover dead tunes or are they saying, not another GD tune.
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

Didn't Trey issue a similar letter around their 20th anniversary?

Its a fake. The wording is identical to the letter Trey released when they took their last hiatus...

Exactly. Not only that, they have a new album coming out this year produced by Bob Ezrin that might well prove one of their best. They're on a roll.

Considering going to my 1st show when they come to Denver.
I went walkin' out last summer
Tryin' to find a breath of air
I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there
