What I wouldn't give to have heard pig live! That is awesome!
I am in fact the self-appointed President of the little-known organization OAD: Order of the Ancient Deadheads. Only membership requirement is to have attended at least one PigPen show.

Fewer and fewer of us every year.... :-) Woodstock gave us a big bump (but you have an * after your name if that was your only Pig-Dead "show"). :lol:

T14 ...that is unbelievably cool. If I remember right, you're somewhere in Upstate. Grew up in Ithaca. Lived there 23 years. First show 1981, but that's small-taters compared to seeing Pigpen.

Righteous Man. :peas:

It was weird because at the time we had no idea there was a post "The Stag and Phil Lesh101 same person?" :smile:

That is what I was trying to say but I was told I was a fool for saying so.

Well, in print you must stick to as much fact as possible when stating things in absolute terms, or make sure people know you are stating an opinion. You can't rely on people to assume your intentions or let them assume what you were trying to say, especially after starting a flame!!

Fact: The Dead stopped touring.

Fact: Phish were still touring.

Fact: Phish did grow a little when the Dead stopped touring, but they were HUGE already and didn't need Dead heads to keep them rolling.

False: Phish suddenly became successful when Jerry died and owe their success to that in any way.

Phish may not be my favorite band, but you can't deny their unique approach and their talent! Mike G played Phil style bass at TRI better than most pro players I know. Music is always a taste thing no need to bash it, unless you wanna start a fight, and that's what happened me thinks....

As for the security on this site, hats off to those that keep us from being cyber raped. It is not easy and trolls are a wase of space here. it is easier to knock them out then to allow them to run rampant. You did start your membership here most unorthodox. Hippy, cool, square or not, that is just asking for trouble within an online qroup. A little conformity, where it helps everyone around you, never really hurt anyone and is an act of kindness. :hd:

From SF Huff-Post:

"Phil has long been credited with being part of a group of '60s bass players that pioneered a more melodic, lead kind of playing. Mike Gordon of Phish has been aware of this style for sometime. After two songs, when Phil left the performance to join Yonder Mountain String Band at Terrapin Crossroads, Gordon picked up the role of the bassist and finished the rest of the show. Seeing these two musicians one after the other, it was clear that Phil had greatly influenced Gordon's sound and style."

Yeah, but don't let the facts get in the way of a good troll session. "Mike Gordon sucks, Phil should smack him in the face with a Dead Possum" or some such nonsense from our teenage friends. :roll:

And we all think you're wrong and we're also very sick of seeing you type "mmkay". But thanks for your valuable input.
