Trey Confirms Doesn’t Deny Phish Reunion in Many Years

So, it’s hilarious that for as many times Trey said “This is it…” or “We’re done” with regards to the Phish breakup, he goes right back and lets himself say “Well, I might eat my words years from now…”

From the Illinois Entertainer (my emphasis added)…

So keep all Phish questions at bay, because they’re not getting back together anytime soon . . . right?

“It’s so funny that nobody’s asked me that! We’re definitely not now, and I would never do that because it was all the rage. All I’ll say to that is I’ve said so many stupid things in the past, that have come out of my mouth, if there’s one thing I’m finally starting to learn is I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I’d like to play music for a long time and I love those guys. Who knows?

I, for one, would never want Phish to get back together. Please don’t. Trey, if you’re reading this, don’t do it, dude.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again -the world is a better place with Phish than it is without Phish.

    I realize there’s a lot of ‘stuff’ they may need to work through, and they may not sound like Phish pre-hiatus, they may suck, but if they’re going to give it a whirl, how can we not support them? We really don’t know what they’ll sound like should they play together again, do we?

    People change, shit happens, they’re just human -I, for one, will be seeing as many of those shows as I can if, for no other reason, I love those songs!!

    it doesn’t make any sense to me why people infer that trey’s ego is out of control. the phish breakup had nothing to do with trey wanting to stand in the spotlight without his “best friends”. the breakup was simple, and at this point i think it should be generally understood- drugs and chaos. the phish scene was out of control, and multiple band members were unhealthy; everyone has access to this info, im not saying anything new here. i saw trey in at bates college in maine with 70 volt parade and was blown away, to be honest. though the stuff with the rest of the band was impressive, the highlight was of course his solo phish material acoustic set. when trey soloed while the audience sang “limb by limb” over and over i couldnt contain myself. trey lit up with an enormous smile, talked about how much he loves and respects phish, i felt all warm and fuzzy inside. now, at the ripe old age of 20 and without much live phish experience, and none pre-hiatus, i know that i missed the real phish experience. but if theyre healthy, happy, and ready to get back together why would anyone object? just because theyre not the same as they once were doesnt mean that theyre not a beautiful entity. who could honestly give a fuck about purity if they were grooving once more at a phish show?

    dude, i think a phish reunion would be amazing. mostly becuase i never got to see them,i dont think anyone fits together anywhere close to how those guys fit, they are the only people who can really be the band and i would do anything so see that

    I miss those guys more than ever. We will never see another Jam band that can pull off what they already done. They are the real deal, there chemistry is unbelievable, Trey is a freaking rock star and it would be my dream come true to see those guys back on tour. I am ready for the real deal.
