Introduction

Kurt Vonnegut’s contribution of Hook,


Line & Sinker
to The

Greatest Album Covers That Never Were, portions of which are currently


on display

at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, inspired me to take a closer


look at the relationship between Mr. Vonnegut and Phish. By and by

I started to feel snowed under and figured now was as good a time


as any to share some of the interviews and notes I’ve collected in

the name of this project thus far. Now these conversations don’t get at a specific thesis or answer a certain question, but you might


say they foreshadow the sort of formalized, academically tuned investigation

that was my original goal.

Jon Fishman noted in the May

2000 Fish’s Forum, “I missed the boat once when I was young


and stupid, but now I am able to miss the boat repeatedly with great

skill and accuracy.” While the timbre of this statement corresponds


to the brand of self-effacing humor employed at times by Vonnegut,

it also describes my feelings on this project to an extent. I didn’t


exactly accomplish what I set out to achieve a few months back, it’s

still a work in progress; phase one of a bigger project to be completed


at a later date.

At any rate, I am very proud to share the thoughts of Tom Marshall,


Richard Gehr, Max Prior, and Col. Bruce Hampton (Ret.) on the topic

at hand. The degree of humanity and intelligence exhibited herein


is almost overwhelming. Indeed, their respective works, all unique

in their own way, are touchstones to which I aspire.
