Follow up review to the Toledoblade.com: 'Fluffhead' or bust: A journey to see Phish by Kirk Baird
OK, I said I would return with an explanation of the headline and a not-so-typical review of the recent Phish show.
Concert reviews are great for those who didn't make the show; a quick synopsis of what you did or didn't miss. I gave a quick one of those on Thursday, the morning after the Phish concert at Cobo Arena in Detroit. Read on
