Sad news from the Phish camp, Trey’s sister, Kristy Manning has passed after battling cancer. She had managed Trey’s “Seven Below” project at The Barn. Phish.com:
Earlier this afternoon, Kristy Manning, Trey’s sister, passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. She was one of Phish’s first fans and biggest supporters. In recent years, Kristy helped form and lead Trey’s non-profit endeavor, The Seven Below Arts Initiative.
Kristy was a loving sister, mother, daughter, friend, and a role model for all. Her positive attitude, strength of character and continued outpouring of love and support left a profound impact on everyone she knew.
She will truly be missed.
Our hearts go out to the Anastasio’s and the extended Phish family.
Elvis Aaron Presley left our world on this date in 1977. Love him, hate him, whatever, his mark on rock and roll and rhythym and blues is undeniable. Here’s a classic clip of “The King” performing Suspicious Minds.
In rememberance of Isaac Hayes, we are re-posting Phish’s 12/9/95 YEM that contains “Shaft” vocal teases as well as “Shaft” by Mr. Hayes himself. RIP Isaac.
Here’s our original post on Isaac’s passing. Isaac Hayes (1942-2008)
Although we at MSD are 99% music content, we actually have other interests too! One of those is baseball. We were saddened to hear of Skip Caray‘s passing over the weekend. Skip had been an Atlanta Braves broadcaster since 1976. My dad and I met Skip at a Braves spring training game in 1988. His father, Harry, was ill at that time. Although he wasn’t overly friendly in that meeting, he was the voice of my favorite professional sports franchise, The Atlanta Braves, from my youth until now. Rest In Peace, Skip.
(Note: I remember how Skip loved to say, “Here we are, at the bottom of another fifth.” Merging his love of baseball and the sauce.)
Some of his quotes:
A lotta room in right-center, if he hits one there we can dance in the streets. The 2-1. Swung, line drive left field! One run is in! Here comes Bream! Here’s the throw to the plate! He is…safe! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win! Braves win!…Braves win! They may have to hospitalize Sid Bream; he’s down at the bottom of a huge pile at the plate. They help him to his feet. Frank Cabrera got the game winner! The Atlanta Braves are National League champions again! This crowd is going berserk, listen!
Mark gets the sign, the wind and the pitch here it is… swung, fly ball deep left center, Grissom on the run… Yes! Yes! Yes! The Atlanta Braves have given you a championship! Listen to this crowd! A mob scene on the field. Wohlers gets ‘em one, two, three. A couple of fans rushing on the field. The Atlanta Braves have brought the first championship to Atlanta!
