broomecountyforumite I don't remember much about Phish's set, I haven't heard it since I was there so I can't fairly rate it.
We only went to see Phish and must've kinda embarrassed them when we were sitting on the lawn, watching Widespread or Aquarium Rescue Unit, can't recall which, and we spotted some of Phish watching from the side of the stage. We stood up, pointed at Phish in the wings and started cheering at them. Not exactly 'polite' during another band's set, but hey, we were obsessed.
I also recall Fish setting up his own drums in his "street clothes" (incognito) before their set!! I had never seen Fish in normal clothes before, it was strange.
I lost my grey 'Member's Only' jacket during Spin Drs set. I had been using the jacket to sit on....but...such a tremendous amount of people swarmed in for Spin Drs that I lost my jacket....and soon saw it flying above the crowd. I never saw it again....
We didn't enjoy the shift of vibe so we wandered off during Spin Drs.
Who did I see standing amongst the assorted food, eco, etc stands but Trey, seemingly being interviewed by someone from a paper. I was shameless.
I ran right up to Trey just gushing with admiration. The man was plainly not used to this yet. He seemed nervous actually, but kind, polite, yet kinda awkward. Looking back, I can't blame him...I was just flippin out.
The guy who had been interviewing Trey was just observing my fanaticism patiently.
Trey didn't really say much, he smiled that smile he ALWAYS had, and said "thanks" many times to me. Finally I asked him to sign an autograph on the back of my black-n-green Phish sticker. He said he would, but didn't have a pen. No problem!! I ran to the nearest stand, asked for a pen and got a red one. Now here's the best part:
Trey signs the back of my sticker, and when handing the pen and sticker back to me....accidentally stabs me in the hand with the pen!!!
Man, he got so, so apologetic. He turned red, took my hand and was like "Oh my God, man, are you ok? I'm so, so sorry...are you sure, oh man, I'm so sorry..." I was fine. Just fine, and Trey's red autograph still resides in a place of honor in my apartment.
