Jon Fishman Shares Post-Coventry Story in Modern Drummer
Phish drummer Jon Fishman is on the cover of the current issue of Modern Drummer. In this piece he describes the fall-out after Coventry and the fact that he didn’t play the drums for nearly two years after that show. Then he details how he developed a new approach to the drums that re-ignited his enthusiasm. Fishman also acknowledges the frustration of fans who were disappointed in the band’s performances of such songs as “Fluffhead” in the early 2000’s and ultimately states, “I don’t think I ever fully appreciated Phish for what it is as much as I do now. I know I didn’t.” A portion of this interview now appears on the Modern Drummer website which focuses on Phish’s performance of Exile On Main St.
