Expertise

My vast Phish knowledge is based upon first hand experiences which are too numerous to list here. My first show was on 7/20/91. I was present during the 06/26/94 after show when Mike and Jon came up with the idea for the future Halloween shows in which the band donned `musical costumes`. I also attended a NASCAR race in 1995 with Page and Sofi.

Experience in the area

I've been to 260 Phish shows (through 8/15/04). I've also been to most milestone shows including:
Every Phish New Years Eve show from 1991-2003,
