Reigning jam-band kings Phish have assembled a year-in-the-life documentary
book about the band's experiences on the road and in the studio. "The Phish Book"
(Villard Books), penned by the band and writer Richard Gehr, delves into the group's
history and influences using the experiences
of 1997 as a foundation. Due Wednesday, the 192-page hardcover tome includes stories about Phish's Burlington, Vt.,
home-base, their famous Halloween shows and the 60,000-fan Great Went concert in
Limestone, Maine, according to Villard spokesman Brant Janeway.
