Although founded in the early eighties, it wasn't until the early nineties that the band Phish emerged as the heir to the Grateful Deads' jam band style throne. Phishs' music is somewhat similar to the Dead's -- it's an eclectic, free-form rock & roll encompassing folk, jazz, country, bluegrass, and pop -- the group adheres more to jazz-derived improvisation than folk tradition, and they have a looser, goofier attitude. After all, their drummer regularly plays a vacuum during their concerts. Phish's main claim as the inheritors to the Deads' legacy is their approach to their musical career. The band didn't concentrate on albums per say; they dedicated themselves to unbelievable live improv shows. And just like the Grateful dead Phish tickets have always been at a premium and hard to get.
