Phish Selects Lillywhite to Produce New Album

The latest in the Phish reunion rumor mill comes to us from Jamtopia.

This one claims that an e-mail sent to the moderator of that Blog originated from Jon Fishman himself -- Henrietta didn't send him the e-mail but it was somehow intercepted and forwarded on to Jamtopia.

The blog post says Grammy Award-Winning Producer Steve Lillywhite, who worked with Phish on Billy Breathes back in 1996 and has produced albums for some of the biggest rock'n'roll bands on the planet, including U2, the Talking Heads, Dave Matthews Band, Peter Gabriel, Morrissey, The Pogues, The Smiths, The Rolling Stones, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Simple Minds, The Counting Crows and Crowded House -- just a partial list, mind you -- was picked to produce a new Phish album.

Supposedly, the album will contain much of the material Tom Marshall and Trey Anastasio have been working on in recent times, as discussed here at The Wagger earlier this month.

I'm still skeptical, but I have to admit: the frequency that information is coming out about Phish getting back together to blow shit up again has me salivating.

We're getting very optimistic over here at The Wagger . . . stay tuned.
