For the July/August issue of Relix, contributing editor Jesse Jarnow traveled to Vermont to talk with Richard Wright, an early Phish friend and collaborator known to many fans as Nancy. Jarnow spent time with the reclusive songwriter and musician, who is best remembered in Phish circles as the author of “Halley’s Comet” and “I Didn’t Know.” In an exclusive interview, Jarnow discusses Wright’s long association with the members of Phish as well as his own demons and inspirations. As Jarnow finds, Wright’s story is also the story of the “old, weird Phish” that developed far away from the mainstream music industry in 1980s Vermont.
