Now and Then

We all have our highs and lows – Trey is no different.

Exhibit B – Phish’s last song before the breakup – The Curtain from their disastourous Coventry festival. After his little speech, he suspiciously seems to blow something at 0:50, the resulting near death/coma like look he gives at 2:40 is downright scary. It makes this phan happy the man’s still alive and playing, it’s clear he was really out there:

Exhibit C – Nuff’ said:

Exhibit D – Fast-forward a few years to the Hampton reunion, night 3, opening sequence of Sanity > Wilson. Trey seems like a new man, rejuvenated, playing crisply, not looking like a ghost, and generally enthused with the band:

Let’s hope that Trey and keep his shit together for the upcoming summer tour – Phish has more potential for both magic and disaster right now than probably any time in their career. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that Trey will melt faces this summer, just not his own.
