    Well as most of you won't care, my favorite band Phish has fianlly called it quits.
    here's the article
    Phish Article on CNN

    This years summer tour which consist of a measly 11 concerts (f'in weak compaired to the 7 months of touring in both 97 and 98) makes the end of a era for me and over two decades for band.

    So what would you do if your favorite band called it quits, I'm talking about bands that have like a cult following, not a local band but someone who's been around for like 20+ years. (ok 10+ or so years)

    Me myself I'm going to be lost, no new phish music, no new concerts, it's a real bummer.

    But then I'm ecstatic that I have a ticket to one of the very last shows.

    Just go and enjoy it- that's what I would do. End the "era" with a set of good memories. Hell, Metallica is dead to me, and Rage ATM is gone too.

    It's just time to move onto another band. Since Phish basically replaced the Grateful Dead, there are probably other bands waiting in the wings to take Phish' place... as there is a huge fanbase for music of that mood. So it's definitely worth some band's while to move into that niche.

    It's okay, you'll survive... B)

    :thumbsup:

    i know what you mean, it sucks when your favorite group decides to stop making music. just take it all in, the energy at their last shows will be amazing, i'm sure. enjoy it while it's here. every good thing must come to an end sometime. you'll be fine. :D

    I'd say by far am I a hippie and I have a job, and short hair, and don't wear sandles, and I was glad to see some actually heeart felt responces , and how people would actually feel, etc.... and then came the bashers, I don't give a rats ass if you like the band,hippies,yuppies etc... or not, I was looking for input on how you'd feel if put in the situation.

    hell I'd compair it to Pink Floyd fans loosing Floyd,

    man imagine if the Stones Broke up man, lot of sad fans. etc...

    yeah, but it'll probably be longer than 10 years , as they will make $12,000,000 just doing the Two shows on Aug14-15. there will be at least 80,000 people there.

    and to think of it they have made a shit load of money in a short period of time.
    96, Cliffordball, 30,000 fans $4+mil
    97, GreatWent 40,000 fans $5mil
    98, Lemon Wheel, 60,000 fans $10mil
    99, Osewgo, 80,000 fans $11mil
    03, IT, 80,000 fans $11+mil
    04, Conventry, 80,000 fans $12+mil

    plus all the new years concert that span 4 days
    they have grossed over $42 million with 6 festivals that lasted about 3-4 days each.

    How old are the guys in Phish? Maybe they are tired of touring and just want to relax and enjoy their money now. They should have made enough money to retire. Being on the road like that sucks. They might have wives and kids that they now want to spend time with too. Who wouldn't want to retire before they are old and greyhaired?

    The majority of Phish fans are Gratefull Dead transplants.

    when the dead stopped touring because Jerry went the way of the last roach in the roach clip, the deadheads suddenly realized that if they didnt follow another band they would be forced to go back into society and join the rest of the world.....

    Maybe you guys should follow another band that is going strong.....

    I can just see long haired hippies with flowers in their hair twirling to the sounds of that one Canadian dyke.....whats her name?
