An Interview with Trey Anastasio and Lars Fisk

Announcing “Super Ball IX” At Watkins Glen International

Sensational. Mind-blowing. Fantabulous. These are all words with the same amount of letters as SUPER BALL IX. It’s Phish’s biggest. Ball. Ever. So big we can’t. Contain it. In one sentence.

RIP Joe Morello (1928-2011)

I had three drum lessons when I was 13 to learn how to read from a guy named Dave Hanlon in Syracuse. The only other lessons I’ve ever had were from Joe, and they were 15 years apart. I went to him in ’09 for the second one. I kind of knew this was coming after leaving that lesson. I’m very sad about this. My entire rudimentary practice routine has come from him. The last lesson I had with him was basically a confirmation that everything he had told me 15 years earlier was right and that I should stay on that track.
