http://www.cnn.com/2004/SHOWBIZ/Music/09/20/replacing.phish/index.html I chuckled pretty hard reading this article about who is going to "replace Phish". Have we been over this a billion times yet? String Cheese does their bluegrass pop and that's great for them - a couple more people might get into them - yippy skippy. Who's bringing the hoola-hoops Moe. has been the same for years - albeit a better band than SCI but nowhere near the level of Phish - that's cool that they'll get a few more fans. Panic has taken this whole year off - IMO great touring bands just don't do that. They've been through some tough stuff - maybe they'll be done soon? Not gonna happen. The Dead are well..... the living Dead. I just can't get into that anymore. They keep bringing new guys/girls in and out and it's not even close the real thing anymore. They will get probably the biggest jump of all these groups, but the prices for their shows are just not cool. I still love Phil. Ween? I don't even consider them a jam band. They're a really fun band and extremely odd - but it's just not going to happen for them. I don't think they want it to happen to them anyway. Sorry for the rant - this is just nonsense on CNN's part.
