Stein’s Shots: Best of Leg One

“Steam” – 6.30.12, East Troy, WI

Michael Stein is one of the premiere concert photographers on the scene today. With an impeccable sense of the moment, Stein captures priceless portraits of his subjects time and time again. It just so happens that he is also a huge Phish fan. Hitting the road with the band for most of Leg One, Stein has hand selected a 38-shot gallery that represents his favorite shots of 2012 to share with Phish Thoughts today. I want to personally thank Michael for sharing his work with this site for over three years, and here’s to future collaboration!

    SF decision helped by some delicious sicilian wine. young 2010 light body very unique flavor. and my wife daring me to go.

  2. voopa Says:

    Nice work kaya. See you in a few weeks!

    Who’s next for the tractor beam?

  3. kayatosh Says:

    let me know folks, if you got SF tix to dispose of. need 1 per night. PEACE

    @kaya, Etna Rosso by any chance? Was in Sicily last year and fell in love with that wine. Quite light color and tastes like volcanoes. Good stuff.

  5. kayatosh Says:

    tzara’s: it was a louis dressner import. will try to find the name now.

  6. kayatosh Says:

    tzara’s: occhipinti SP68 Rosso

    Huge day, fully certified to the top level possible for me, one of the most important check rides of my career…aaand…

    kaya didn’t get kaya’d while in the Rooster’d realm. Big ups to Mr Kayatosh, well done Sir.

  8. ThePigSong Says:

    Hit the cinci twist on repeat earlier, my neighbor who hasn’t seen the band since N Carolina shows ’93 immediately jumped on the Lakewood bandwagon. ’twas a good night.

    and I’m headed back to the Yoop for more beautiful sunsets and beach time in the AM. Peace out folks.

  9. RoosterPizza Says:

    I got rooster’d last night and it’s 95 and 91%humidity today. I didn’t know I was hungover until I stepped outside…yup, there it is.

  10. RoosterPizza Says:

    9:56 of DCU Ghost is something. That’s all I have for now.

    Kaya>Bill Graham = Epic Night on the Blackboard

    I’ll bring treats and supplies. And a yoga mat or two.

    Jah Bless!

  12. phoammhead Says:

    well played, kaya . . . well fuckin’ played!

  13. joe Says:

    strange urge to listen to a YEM this morning.

  14. Robear Says:

    Phoam and Joe, feeeeeeeel the tractor beam. It’s light is growing brighter. Obstacles like money and work are stepping stones.

  15. joe Says:

    now that the shoe is on the other hand, it all seems so easy. right, rob? long shot of Dicks is my only semi-real possibility.

  16. Robear Says:

    ‘Do as I say, not as I do’

    -parents for generations

    Dicks a great idea.

    Booked a trip to SF for phish while roostered — couldn’t be happier. less than a month away. will be off the board for a lot of today, but know that i love you cats. jah bless.

  19. Gavinsdad Says:

    @al – right on. We’re all stoked to see u come into the light on the holmdel gin (specially us jersey kids). I basically learned most of Phishs back catalog from this site/board.


    @kaya – smart move. I haven’t been to SF since ’93 and cannot wait to be back. Phish is icing on the cake. Will Pregame one of those days at the Toronado bar in the lower Haight.

    Dim Sum awaits…

  20. kayatosh Says:

    SF trip is great incentive to get back to prime health and physical fitness.
    Have a feeling phish will bring the magic to bill grahm.

  21. Gavinsdad Says:

    12/30/95 featured the “miner hood” my first time in MSG for Phish…could not remember a note of the show. Thanks Kevin Shapiro!

  22. RoosterPizza Says:

    Doesn’t it feel good to pull the trigger on plane tickets? When I bought my plane tickets for Atlanta and Charlotte, I was like, yeahhhhhh, I’m badddddd.

  23. kayatosh Says:

    it all feels good, rooster. gotta jet and teach yoga


  24. sumodie Says:

    Hallelujah! Word came down that Jesus loves the cinci twist. All hail the sacred Broadway tease as truth!

  25. phoammhead Says:

    @rob . . . would be sooo sweet to make bill graham or dicks. will make oak mtn and lakewood . . . so, got that going for us. if we weren’t getting married and planning a honeymoon, then we’d definitely make dicks. oh well, i got a great life.
