Band Name Origins:

  • I thought everyone knew this. .. Phish is a delicious vegetarian fish substitute made by Morning Star. Available in fillet, crumble and flake style. The band lived on this stuff early on. Submitted by: Dick Clark
  • My friend met Page personally earlier this year (2009), and asked this exact question. He said that has nothing to do with Fishman, but it is meant to be the sound a plane makes when it takes off. ppphhhhiiiiIIIISSSSHHHHH. Submitted by: Kevin

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics:

"Bouncing Around the Room"
The Lyrics:
...And faintly bouncing around the room the echo of whomever
spoke...
Why:
Whomever should be whoever. If one rewrites this segment of the lyrics as the sentence "The echo of whoever spoke was faintly bouncing around the room," one can see that there are two verbs, "spoke" and "bouncing" (or "was bouncing" if one includes the auxiliary verb). Every verb needs a subject. In this sentence, the subject of "bouncing" is "echo," and the subject of "spoke" is "whoever." One can not use the object form "whomever" in the subject position. Perhaps the misuse was for the purpose of artistic expression, but if the misuse was an unintentional mistake, I believe the error may be due to the preposition "of." While it is true that every preposition must be followed by an object, an entire clause may serve as an object. If a clause follows a preposition, by definition, there must be a verb in that clause (as a clause must contain a subject and verb by definition). In this case, the entire clause "whoever spoke" serves as the object of the preposition "of." And as mentioned before, as all verbs need a subject, so does the verb "spoke" in our case; "whoever" is that subject.

"Bouncing Around the Room"
The Lyrics:
. . . and faintly bouncing around the room
The echo of whomever spoke.
Why:
It should be "whoever spoke." The use of the verb "spoke" makes "whoever" the object of the sentence, not the subject.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Having a drummer in a dress"
"Fishman" was usually attired in a loose dress, especially the infamous "Henrietta" with donut-shaped designs, except for a brief period when he experimented with Italian suits.
