Does this Make Me Cool By Association?

I had no clue. Since Jerry Garcia died, Phish have been the cool "head" band by default. After graduating high school, I attended Mercer County Community College for a year, headed off to Berklee College of Music (btw, one of our notable professors, jazz great Herb Pomery recently passed), and three graduate degrees from Temple University later, now teach full time at Mercer.

I didn't know that Trey Anastasio guitarist for Phish is an alum of Mercer County Community College. At least one or more Phish members (I need to brush up) are Berklee alums as well.

Every time a student of mine wears a Phish shirt, I'm going to have to inform him/her that Trey is an alum.
