as_my_senses_bleed Not wishing to take sides or split hairs over last night's performance, I'd rather address the building sense of communal disappointment with this tour's overall trajectory as a genuine concern among the fan base for the well being of our beloved band. I myself truly hope all is well in their lives, professional and private. We've been so blessed to experience alongside them a renewed upsurge in creativity and an ever-refined musical prowess in the last 4+ years. I know no one who takes this for granted. And with the world all around taking ever precarious paths into unknown and unstable futures, the fragility of everything is palpable, including the stability of the Phabulous Phour. Fishman's Bernie dress is only one indicator, the tip of the iceberg, that so much is at stake right now. Speaking of Fishman, I'd like to say that to my ears, he is in tip-top form, funneling all his passion, technique, and skill into his kit at such a high caliber, that I cannot keep from being continually blown away by him. As for the rest, the magic is still there. We all know it is. And despite any nagging fears, I still hold fast to the thought that the best is still to come.
