Re: “Review of Phish: The Biography

I agree that the biography is slightly bland and white washed. It was entertaining, and even insightful in parts, but on the whole it's missing much of why books like this get written. In the final analysis, Puterbaugh was probably not the right person for the job. His sympathies all too often cloud his sense of objective reportage. It's clear that he has the bands best interests at heart every step of the way, but unfortunately that sort of allegiance doesn't make for good biographical narrative. Hell of a piece, Jesse! I've been a Phish fan for 20 years and love them not only for their triumphant musical abilities, but also for their bruised humanity. I think a much more comprehensive treatment is appropriate here, if for no other reason then to bring even more light to what they've overcome in order to come back together. Either do a thing right, or leave it be. I think we all would have been just as happy if this book had been postponed for perhaps another decade.
