As a side note, we saw this on Phish.net (7/30/09):
Our thoughts are with the friends and family of Tasha Goodson, who fell 25 feet into a rock cave near Independence Pass at the Ice Caves outside of Aspen. Tasha had intended to attend the upcoming Red Rocks shows with boyfriend Addison Choquette before their trip with her 10-year old brother Titan and 3-month old baby Ozley Titan. She was rescued by Mountain Rescue and life-flighted to St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction CO. Upon arrival she was in critcal condition and admitted to the ICU, with injuries including a fractured skull, two fractured wrists, broken vertebrae in the neck and lower back, and broken ribs, which puntured and collapsed one of her lungs. One of her first questions after opening her eyes was, “Can we still and go see Phish?” but she was unfortunately be missing the shows. Those on site, please dance your assess off in her honor.
And a nice piece on the band on Hidden Track:
From the mid ’90s until their breakup in 2004, Phish was often mocked by the mainstream press for a variety of reasons, namely their lack of radio and commercial success, relatively weak album sales, their obsessively devoted fan base of neo-hippies who follow them around to show after show (on drugs, always on drugs). With the band’s return at Hampton this past March the common perception of the group is not so common anymore, with Phish now getting treated like any other major act in the industry. (more…)
