10 years ago, Big Cypress


Recommended Posts

Coming up on a decade since the legendary Phish festival that to this day is the greatest concert spectacle I have ever witnessed.

Lots of stories to share that I can't wait to tell over the next week or so. I am sure you guys will do the same.

Me and my buddy Mike had to "call in sick" from the Orlando airport, on the same phone call. I mean, I called in sick, then passed the phone to Mike.

It was a hilarious start to a wild few days.

Does anyone who was there ever hear Here Comes the Sun without remembering that moment vividly? The bass kick from the tower just behind me snapped me slightly back to reality.....

Was kind of waiting to hear SKing chime in on this thread.... He appeared out of nowhere, charging towards our crew after having given up on being close- during Piper and seeing his glowing face and pumping fists was enough for me to make it well past dawn. One of my most fond concert memories of all time.
