Area Phish-heads, take note.
Via, Phish.net: "On the heels of widespread rumors that Phish had their first conference-call in four years last Friday ... prime lyricist Tom Marshall has told PopMatters.com that "Trey wants to come back" and "No one wants Phish back more than Trey", that he has written more than 15 songs with Trey over the last four months, that the two have "a new energy, a spark", and that they are "bright-eyed and bushy tailed" and "like we're in 8th grade again."
Also, in a recent issue of Rollling Stone, Anastasio said when the band quit in 2004, he never thought he'd ever want to play the epic "You Enjoy Myself" ever again, but after a brief stint in jail (heroin, painkillers) he said he'd like to play it five times a day forever, which tea-leaf readers have taken to mean he's interested in getting the band together.
He's on probation for three years after recently graduating drug court.
