not sure how to link a picture, but i'll give it a shot..
More of a personal holy grail i guess, my very first phish show, 15 years old, went with my dad and little brother on a cold snowy cleveland night, such an amazing memory and it started a long run of many more phish shows over the years. It's one i've always wanted strictly for sentimental reasons (not that it's not an amazing print, it is) unfortunatly it's way out of my price range and i doubt i'll ever have a chance to get it. why did it have to be the show emek decides to do his print for?? :hanging: oh well, maybe someday.

not very many of these floating around
I don't think so much, Ed. Just that many 60s or classic rock bands had a big influence on many of us growing up. And if you didn't (or aren't still) attached to more contemporary stuff, then they can still be a big part of your music. Or in my case, I kind of rotate music periodically just by what I have a taste for. As of late, it's been a solid amount of Zep, Stones, some classic Fleetwood Mac amidst some more recent things too. It all varies, but that's part of why I have a soft spot for some of those older pieces. That and they really do speak to me, in ways that I just don't feel that many modern day artists connect their work with the band they are working on/with/for.
I do understand what you're saying. I can say that I feel like I gravitate towards artists who make a connection with the band. For me personally I just don't like the older art and I know this is blasphemous but my exposure to some of the 60's and 70's band is limited. I know little to nothing about Led Zepplin and Fleetwood Mac. In the past 17 years or so of listening to music with a purpose, I've only hit on a few of the classic bands. I've spent way too much of my time listening to pop punk and ska. It's on my to do list, to learn something aboot Zepplin and some others.

Yes- some girl had it and I think she said her brother got it at school from a girl who went but didn't get inside

It was a kool looking poster

Nice first show, and good on your dad for taking you. Hope he enjoyed it too! Phishheads are so ga ga over Pollock prints, but this one I think deserves to be in this thread. Here is a working image/link:
