Phish - "Tweezer" with Led Zeppelin Teases


Jam Base:
Zepp Madness And Fun With Feat - 10/30-31/2010
Atlantic City legend Pinky Kravitz said that Phish would cover a Led Zeppelin album on Halloween in a Pinky's Corner column that ran just before the band's three-night stand at Boardwalk Hall in 2010. While Phish wound up covering Little Feat's Waiting for Columbus on Halloween, they did work in parts of four Led Zeppelin songs into "Tweezer" on October 30, 2010 and later "Whole Lotta Love" into "Chalk Dust."

Then, on the 31st, before Phish kicked into "Fat Man In The Bathtub" the band had some fun as described in the notes on Phish.net, "In the tradition of some of Phish's previous crowd experiments in the early '90s, flyers explaining a new Secret Language prank were included in the Phishbills that were passed out to fans as they walked into the show. The prank, designed to confuse those who would later listen to the recording, consisted of an announcer introducing Phish (as Little Feat). When the announcer would say a letter of the band FEAT ('Give me an F!'), the crowd would respond with letters corresponding to PHISH ('P-H!')."
