What does Gabby have to say?





Gabby and Trey in Studio M

August 14 and 15 2004 was both an exciting and sad day for Phish fans. That was to be the bands final farewell before they went on their separate ways. The band was as choked up as the tens of thousands of fans who walked for miles to get to Coventry VT. Keyboardist Page McConnell couldn't finish singing Wading in the Velvet Sea and needed the crowd to help sing the chorus. I wasn't there and was not happy I missed it.  Fast forward a bit to November 2005. Trey's solo album Shine had come out and he was going on radio station visits to promote it. I think you may have some idea how excited I was to actually interview him! Back then we hadn't built our beautiful Studio M performance area, so I entered the room where he had just  arrived. He turns to me, holds out his hand to shake and says " Hi, I'm Trey. Thanks for having me". I responded with " This is a thrill for me second only to the time I made Frank Zappa laugh." I knew he was as big a Zappa fan as I was, so I was hoping that would pique his attention. Well, it certainly did and we spent about 15 minutes just talking about all the Zappa concerts I had seen. He told me how lucky I was to have seen so many shows. That comment got me to thinking; no matter who you are as a performer, there is always someone you admire and look up to.  He was a terrific interview subject, as you might imagine, with the conversation including stories about his grandmother as well as  Krishnamurti! You can hear the Studio M here, as well as this Sunday at 9 AM and 5 PM. I enjoyed talking with him SO much, I don't even care what I look like in these photos! It was GABBY'S HAPPY DAY!!!
