Nigel_Tufnel I thought Fish's little helper was during Weekapaug, so thanks for that correction.

Hypothetically speaking, if I were some sort of detective assigned to sleuth out "behind the scenes tensions within the band manifesting onstage as a lack of jams", here's a couple observations:

1. Did anyone else pick up on Trey's sarcasm (and even possible annoyance) around the whole Contact request thing? Both verbally before the song, and also when they squared off to trade notes during the song; I thought I sensed some sarcastic mockery from Trey toward Mike.

2. I left the venue immediately after the last note of the show (for some fresh cool air), and observed that they each have their own tour busses, and all four of these separate tour busses rolled out in a convoy ASAP after the show. Point being that post show backstage affairs and riding on the same tour bus would foster comradery. The opposite would not.

Yes, I know I am probably being waaaay too analytical here, fearing the worst, making assumptions and/or seeing stuff that really isn't happening (no, not in that way). Please understand it comes from a place of concern (borderline worry) around musical disconnection onstage and an obvious lack of jams. It's from a place of love.
