TREY: This next song is a story of a great, great, great man. We thought that it was important that it was important, on Halloween… On Halloween it’s always important to remember this man because he was born on Halloween. In 1948. In ancient Greece. In 1948, in ancient Greece.
And this man was a great philosopher. Can we get some backup vocals here? How about some backup vocals? [Backing vocals begin] Thank you... I’m sure that many of you may have had a chance in your lifetime to come across the writings of this great man. But for those of you who haven’t, we hope that someday, the words of this great and honored person will reach you because this man is not just any man. He is the great and wonderful Icculus!
Phish.net 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.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
