Re: What's spinning?
I remember when Entertainment Weekly had Phish on their cover. I can't remember the year--2003, maybe. But EVERYTHING they had to say about the band was totally laudatory, and since I've barely paid attention to Phish over the years (probably paid more attention to Phish Food), I was sort of shocked to find out how many people hate them? I wasn't shocked to find out that hardcore fans barely care about their studio records, no big shocker there. Hyden also points out how Grateful Dead comparisons are mostly misguided.
I think my favorite bit in the book was him talking about how the (f***ing) Eagles are the definitive classic rock band. I also didn't know Springsteen suffered from depression or mental illness!
