TREY: Yes, the person in the picture is not David Bowie, indeed, the person in the picture is not Wilson. Pardon me, Doug, but this is not a picture of Otis Redding taken just before he died.
But this picture, this picture that hangs on the wall behind us tonight, this picture is a picture of a great, great man.
This is the picture of a man who wrote a great, great book. Ha ha ha! This is not a picture of Johnny B. Goode, this is a picture of… someone other than Elvis! This is a picture of a man, this is a picture of a great, great, man, and I realize now, when I was first introduced to the writings of this great man, my life was changed because this is the man who wrote the Helping Friendly Book. This man is the great, the great and knowledgeable, this is the author of the Helping Friendly Book. Can everyone help me with the backing vocals here?
I hope that you too will someday be influenced by this great and knowledgeable man because he is the man who wrote the Helping Friendly Book, he is the helping friendly man, this man is the great and knowledgeable man who wrote the Helping Friendly Book, he is the one, the only, the one, the only, author of the Helping Friendly Book, this man man, the great 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.
