Phish

I've just become acquainted with them, thanks to a friend. "Bittersweet Motel" was my introduction. I guess because they've been compared to the Dead for so long, I ignored them. Great chops, caught them on Letterman Monday night. Any suggestions for a newbie?

No Lou Gramm, tho. Jones says the band will be "reinvented from the ground up." They plan to go into the studi...
