By popular request, here is the interview with Page McConnell of Phish, which [Shelly Culbertson] did before their show in Arcata, Ca. on 10/15/91.
Shelly Culbertson: As an introduction, could you tell me what the line-up is in the band, and what everyone plays?
Page McConnell: My name is Page McConnell; I play piano and organ. Trey Anastasio - guitar; Mike Gordon plays bass and Jon Fishman plays drums.
SC: How long has the group been together in that form?
PM: We've been like this for six and a half years, and the band has been around for about eight and a half years...no, actually just six years; I've been in the band for six years, and the band before that had a guitar player --there were four of them, and when I joined the band the guitar player stayed around for a little while and then he moved on, so it's been this line-up for six years.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
