Check out this old school Phish interview that just surfaced on YouTube, right at the close of what the kids called Phish 1.0, the band’s busy year 2000 following their Big Cypress Millennium celebration and the readying of their newest LP, Farmhouse.
The guy leading the questioning is Anthony DeCurtis and he talks to the band about a lot of what’s new in the music industry, how their Story of the Ghost sessions were way different and much more of a democracy than the Farmhouse stuff, and how Trey feels about using their songs in commercials someday. All super interesting stuff.
Bonus points for Page McConnell keeping an open mind about what will come of the music business after Napster broke through, but I love Trey’s response when talking about where the money will be flowing in the future. Sad points taken away for Trey making a drugs joke.
