Confirmed: Ex-Phish Frontman Loves Drugs, Driving

Jam Master Trey arrested in upstate New York

In news that should shock absolutely no one, especially no one who has attended a Phish show in the last 25 years — or far too many, as we have — ex-Phish guitarist and now-New York City resident Trey Anastasio was arrested late last night in upstate New York on a DUI charge. The Smoking Gun reports police found Xanax, Percocet and Hydrocodone without a prescription. Idolator puts the rest splendidly:

Anastasio’s booking lasted seven hours, and included three bass solos, a cover of the Move’s entire Message To The Country album, and a flying hamburger bus.
