Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio is inducting rock group Genesis into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month.
The presenters were announced Tuesday by the hall, which is based in Cleveland.
Wyclef Jean will honor Jimmy Cliff. Barry and Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees will induct ABBA. Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong is set to honor The Stooges. And Jackson Browne will induct David Geffen.
The induction ceremony takes place March 15 in New York and will air live on Fuse TV at 8:30 p.m.
As Trey Anastasio and Classic TAB move on from the Northeast leg of their tour onto the Midwest and South, they have left a trail of happy faces in their path. The “anything can happen at anytime” M.O. that Phish lives and dies with is nowhere to be found on TAB Tour, alleviating all the pressure that comes with Phish shows for Trey Anastasio. Big Red and his bandmates are clearly having fun and the happiness is contagious. (continue…)
“While going through an old box of cds I found a few mixes that I had made for hanging out with my friends in college. The trickiest thing about these mixes was the balance between a broad range of musical tastes. The song selections were sometimes to teach, and other times to appease. The result was usually a very odd mix, but ultimately a snapshot of that time in my life… 2002.”

Here’s a fantastic interview with Tom Marshall, courtesy of Jambands.com, that was a two part piece in the Festival 8 Express. Very insightful. Check it out:
Other than the fact that Phish has reunited in 2009, ending a 5-year second hiatus that saw their fan base continue to expand, there has been another welcome reunion this year. Trey Anastasio began working with his longtime writing partner, Tom Marshall once again, and together, in collaboration with the members of Phish, they have created their latest album, Joy. The Express sat down with the lyricist shortly before Festival 8 for a candid conversation about that reunion with the guitarist/singer/composer, and their work on Joy, as well as a look back at a few tracks that found their way onto Party Time, the Joy box bonus CD. As regards Joy, Marshall explains, “I see a lot of questions that you and I could clear up, or at least add to the mystery.” And so we open the door…(more…)
