Fluffhead I was very glad to see this comment on Phish.net. A site created by fans, and an offshoot of one of the first web based fan discussion forums of any band. Phish took note, and cared what was said. Things have changed a lot since 1991, or whenever Phish.net (Fuggles) was first created. I was not so happy to see all of the bashing of @bertoletdown. Was I surprised? No.

People are always so quick to defend Phish when they are "attacked" in any way (let them piss in your ears). Chris wasn't attacking Phish, he was pointing out how poorly run LivePhish is. And poorly run it is. 4 years since the last update? Streams behaving like the 2000 Vegas stream, yet it's 2014? Yeah, that's garbage.

People say this has nothing to do with Phish the band. That's ridiculous. If it comes from Phish, Inc., it ultimately goes back to JEMP. I understand why they made Phish, Inc. a bare bones operation after Coventry. And with that bare bones operation came the outsourcing of Phish management to Red Light. And that is where the issue lies, IMO. If Dionysian Productions were still managing Phish, I don't think the LivePhish debacle would continue. Not sure where Nugs falls into the Red Light / Dionysian comparison, but I truly if believe if Phish were still actively engaged with all things Phish, A-Z, the way they were before the previous dissolution of Phish, Inc., things would be different.


Phish.net

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.
