Jon Fishman, 4/22/92 interview with Shelly Culbertson
Einstein -- he's one of my heroes. ... He brought all sorts of creative ideas to this planet, and he had a lot of mediocre minds working against him --- but if you're going to accomplish that much, you've got to be challenged. I'm sure he was challenged in a lot of ways, but he managed to steer clear of it. No one ever hated him. You'd think in a position like that you could become bitter, you could become a jerk, and you'd have every right to be that way. But even still to be able to stay a nice guy, and end up having a reverberation like that ... that's incredible.

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.
