Tennessee_Chad I know this isn't exactly right, but there is something about Trey that I never quite grasped before. We all sit back and think how great it would be to have his life, be that talented, bring so much joy and happiness to others, but the people nearest and dearest to him were not overly supportive. His Dad (whom I liked, don't get me wrong) still seems underwhelmed by how special and gifted Trey is. I thought the moments of him talking about his childhood and hockey and disappointing his Dad were very heavy. Those kind of rejections plant the seeds of "psychotic overachieving" and a very intense desire to be somebody. So I guess I saw Trey with more empathy than I expected to, and really deeply appreciate the bond between he and the other guys. It seems that they "get him" better than any other humans on earth and can let him be his freest self. Not to bag on Sue (and I am sure he has been a shit husband plenty) but even she was saying she can't handle him and appreciates it when he's gone. That stuff hurts and I think he had much deeper wounds than I would have imagined. Glad it is working out for everyone better these days! 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.
