TREY: [tape cut]… going by the ranch, all kinds of musical gigging, but this man has affected by life in many ways. Let’s have a little background trumpet here, a little trumpet in the background.
Yes, meeting this man has affected my life in many ways, but not as many ways as another man who I never actually met. But, Steve and I both had the pleasure of reading the great writings of this great man.
STEVE: Tell them, tell them Trey.
TREY: Give me a little backing vocals here, Mike, Page. It was a long time ago that I first read the writings of this great philosopher. And it changed my life and I hope that, on this day, Steve and Beth, who I know have devoted their life to the writings of this great man. When they travel out west, they will be praying, stopping by the side of the road to pray to the spirit of this great man.
And someday I hope that all of you will discover the joy of living in his shadow. Because he is, he is, of course, the great, the great and knowledgeable, the great, the wonderful, the incredible, he is, this man is the one and only, he is, his name is the great, he is the great and knowledgeable... Icculus!
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.
