Jason D. O’Grady of Powerpage.org got a chance to interview Brad Sands, Phish’s Road Manager about “the huge impact that the iPod has had on the band.”
A. The band hadn’t played in two years (before coming out of a hiatus to play NYE at the Garden in 2002) and I discussed it with Phish archivist Jason Colton. I thought that it would be cool to get an iPod and load all of the band’s originals live, cover songs and original artists. That way they could just say “We should play this tune…” and pull it up on the iPod.
