> Here’s a book review of Phish Thoughts in Nug Magazine.

By Marco Alvarez 

I first heard the American rock band Phish back in ‘03 through my college roommate who studied music and played the sax. There would often be music playing in our apartment being that he was a saxophonist, and my other roommate, a guitarist. I never learned to play an instrument myself, but I always appreciated hearing the sound of my friends jamming out or the sound of their favorite artists blanketing over the place with their charm.

    I’m not fluffing everything the band plays now, but if you’re not into the music thats happening now 90% of the time…why keep listening and commenting?
    Perhaps finding another band may be better?

    2012 is a new level, and those who want to listen do –

    I’m having a blast. in person, webcast or stream

    maybe elementset is joining in @joe_hill’s new tradition, #trollday fridays

    one of my favorite twitter accounts…top bands discussion from earlier

    “6-10 would be Nickelback, Whitesnake, Lita Ford, Coverdale/Page & The Crüe. Tho some days I feel Coverdale/Page mops the floor w/The Beatles”

    “I also like that other band, the Coverdale/Page tribute group. The Lead Aeroplane I think. Bit tired, name escapes me. They’re almost top 10”

  23. tom Says:

    go trey go

  24. MiA Says:
