This week we're thrilled to have author and podcaster Steven Hyden back on the show, this time to talk about his new book, Twilight of the Gods. There's a lot of Phish content and conversation. It comes out on May 8, but you can pre-order it now. We highly recommend this book. This is part 1 of our conversation with Steven, part 2 will come out in 2 weeks.
More on Twilight of the Gods — there's a chapter in the book dedicated to Phish, so we talk to him about that and about the rest of the book as well, including his thoughts about Dylan, Petty, Springsteen, the Stones, and many more artists. The book is a wonderful look into Steven's evolution as a classic rock fan, and what's happened to music since the peak of classic rock. We hope you enjoy this conversation. You can listen via the player below.

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.
