Incorrect. The best band ever is Styx.

The best band ever hasn't been assembled yet. All are merely shadows on the cave wall, but maybe that thinking's reached a bit of a Plato [sic].

The Beatles. Always will be. Consistantly great work. Their entire body of work was written, recorded and released in seven-and-a-half years, and every album and single was grade A quality. Today, it takes most bands two-and-a-half to three years just to release one album, and the quality is often mediocre.

I agree that Phish's studio albums are good. But I don't feel that they are on the same level as, say, the classic studio albums by bands like the Beatles, the Who and the Stones. Now live...well, that's a whole different story !

I think I also prefer Phish over the Dead because Phish is more jazz-influenced whereas the Dead were more folk-influenced. I'd rather listen to classic jazz than classic folk (although I like both). Also, while Phish's jams can get far out there sometimes, they always seem to maintain a sense of control and bring it back to earth. Sometimes the Dead's jams would remain in the outer galaxies a little too long !

I hear you loud and clear. I guess it's more the bluesy(sp?) element to the Dead that I really love. Folk-type music isn't my first choice either. Its interesting to hear your take on liking to hear the jams stay in this universe because most of the people I know like it to be as far out as possible. It's pretty cool that people can like the same band yet enjoy different elements of it. I'd be interested to know what era of Phish is your favorite and some favorite shows.

To everyone else I just wanted to start a Phish thread and see how it would go over. Better than expected. If I said what you liked sucked I was only giving you a hard time. I apologize if you were offended. Music is great, whatever you like.

Favorite era of Phish ? Probably 1995-97. But they can do no wrong, in my book. Looking forward to both nights at Alpine Valley this year !

As far as preferring the jams to remain somewhat confined to the universe, my age (49) probably has something to do with it !

a thread like this is meaningless because "best" is meaningless without any specified criteria. instead you're just going to get people posting their "favorite" band.

WAIT!?!

What about Lancelot Link and the Evolution Revolution? Chimps that play musical instruments!?! C'mon, that's pure genius!!!
