Got a Clif Bar and some cold green tea

My interview with Trey Anastasio is running in this week's Time Out. During the course of it, I ask him about the Clif Bar line in a song from Phish's new album Joy.

Here's the exchange:

I keep getting caught on the Clif Bar line in “Stealing Time from the Faulty Plan.”
Yeah, it goes, “Got a blank space where my mind should be / Got a Clif Bar and some cold green tea.”

Is that a product placement?
I wish! If Clif Bar wants to give me some money for saying that, I’ll take it.

The only reason I asked that question was to get this in print so that Clif Bars will send me a case.
There was a period a little while ago where I wasn’t eating anything but Clif Bars. I think that line actually really comes from Tom [Marshall, who writes Phish’s lyrics] working in a cubicle at Prudential for the last few years. [Laughs] I went through a period for a couple months there, but I can’t keep eating them. I stopped. Unless they’re gonna give me some money and then I’ll start again.

What I didn't actually expect to happen was this:

Ask and you shall receive…

Hey Colin-

I read the Phish interview and of course loved it all…and especially the Clif section. I’d be more than happy to send you some bars if you were serious about wanting some Hit me with your contact (and Trey’s if you are so inclined;) and we’ll get you set up. Thanks for the mention and keep up the killer work. It’s a tough job hanging out with rockstars and seeing shows….but someone has to do it.

Ride Om!
