It makes perfect sense to me why they continue to perform meatstick with Japanese lyrics. It’s a souvenir, a reminder of the tour. For me, every time they play wading it’s the bright red sunrise over big cypress.Rosiebum, that does make sense. Kind of a cool reminder of a unique tour in their history. Maybe the problem is I just don't like "Meatstick."
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 just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
