In an interview airing tomorrow, Sunday, March 10, on the long-running CBS "Sunday Morning" talk show, Trey tells host Anthony Mason  that "we always felt like lepers", but that "I was at the concerts and people were having a great time".  A very short clip of that interview can be seen on the CBS Sunday Morning website here.

The "Sunday Morning" show runs from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. EST (check your local listings).  As we all know,Trey is rarely interviewed, so this is worth watching, or setting your DVR to record.

UPDATE (3/10/13 1:40 p.m.):  For those of you who missed it, the entire interview is now up on the CBS "Sunday Morning" show website here.

Mikesgroover A nearly 8 minute segment and the majority is spent rehashing biographical information and Phish background that a viewer could obtain elsewhere. They didn't even ask the most obvious question: "What was it about this story (Hands on a Hardbody) that interested you and made you want to write a musical adaptation?"

The journalist in me would have liked to have seen them take a better angle with the questioning, i.e. "How does writing for a musical differ than writing for a four-piece rock band"

Anyway, nice to see some positive publicity for his effort at least.

You guys joking or don't realize that's a watermark from the broadcast?
Well, I was joking and I suspect @1John56 was too. Slow news day (except for posters) and just wasting time on the intertubes. :-)

What is that great song that CBS used as the segment fades out? It's from a live set, with electric guitar and beginnings of piano vamp. Anyone? Anyone?

roybelly I watched the interview but haven't had time to comment.....I would have liked to see the whole thing go down without Trey being pinned down on the arrest/drug court piece, but I think Trey handled it well by keeping his answers simple, true, and consistent...

CBS Sunday Morning would be a bad venue to focus more time on phish history details....I watch the program on a regular basis and it would have been out of character for the show, as well as boring to the millions of viewers who don't get IT....starting out in a college basement band and finding your way to Broadway...now that is something that grabs the attention of the average CBS Sunday Morning crowd.

His focus is on writing new material and trying new things at this point.....maybe a full rock opera starring the band will be next?

man.... i wanted a longer interview than that but as always am happy to see trey so happy and in good form. thanks for the full-segment link
Agreed. They could've spent the entire 1.5 show on Trey and the band... and it still wouldn't have even scratched the surface. Good to see Trey feeling great and happy!

On second look, it does appear that Trey is well dressed for the interview, note sweater over flannel shirt.
