Phil Rosenthal was the lead singer and guitarist for The Seldom Scene from 1977-1986. He talks freely about his hiring by the Seldom Scene in 1977, and his abrupt and bitter firing by the band in 1986. His friend Tony Rice was one of the few who called to sympathize, having left the David Grisman Quintet under less than ideal circumstances himself a few years earlier. 

Phil is also a prolific songwriter, "Muddy Water" being his most famous song, recorded by Johnny Cash, among many others. His American Melody Studios has produced many award winning recordings. Phil lives in Guilford, Connecticut, and still performs, teaches and records regularly.
