  • “For a lot of people, Phish was a post-Dead experience,” Shapiro explained. “But for many others, Phish didn’t draw on that history at all. A lot of people came to Phish from New Wave places—Talking Heads, R.E.M., more of an indie, college-music feel. I’m not saying Phish’s music wasn’t psychedelic. Just not in the way the Grateful Dead’s was.”
