eggsalad Beautifully written, and an amazing recap and tribute to Byron! May he rest in peace and his family be lifted up by the beams of love sent by the community to central Oklahoma. What a touching tribute you've written and I'm so happy you and yours got to enjoy the show he put on for you. I too, like many others I'm sure, have been blessed to experience transcendental moments at Phish that will stick with me forever. The most recent one was at Merriweather last year, when I took a good friend of mine to his first show. It was a couple of days after his 96-year-old Japanese grandmother had passed away (my friend is half Japanese). I thought it'd be both a fun experience and something to take his mind off his grandmother, whom he was very close to and helped take care of day in and day out, until the very end. Well wouldn't you know it, Phish busts out a mid-2nd set, super funky Meatstick, complete with Japanese lyrics and dancing! I told my friend what was happening during the dancing part and he honestly couldn't believe it. Neither could I. Thank you for sharing about Byron. 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.
