    There are some great choices, I’d personally love them to pull off some Arcade Fire, I could see Haiti as a Fishman tune. There are some great songs they could rock out, but also a lot of mellow tunes so maybe not a great fit.

    MGMT would be rock out too, but probably not enough guitar driven for Trey.

    A Tribute to Jack Johnson would be mind blowing, I don’t know if I could come down from where they could spin me to on that one. However, don’t they use that album (or outakes from the sessions) at setbreak sometimes? That would be a little odd if they went right out of the set break music into the next part of the tune.

    hendrix electric ladyland would be sweet.
    zeppelin iv (has song going to california)
    zappa (is from cali.)
    love phish

    My Top 5:
    The Doors
    Electric Ladyland
    Exile On Main Street/Sticky Fingers
    Zeppilen I/IV
    American Beauty (acoustic bustout 11/1 a-la Dark Side Utah 11/2)

    I really hope that old Appetite rumor (that came along with the Indio rumor that turned out to be true) is false. Appetite would kind of suck. So would The Wall.

    *In no order*

  5. BrandonKayda Says:

    Actually, Hot Rats would be pretty insane too

  6. JP Says:

    3 Bowie options…high score from the possibles list, right?

    I like the call on American Beauty or Niel Young acoustic 11/1.

    Agree with other posters that you really can’t trust anything these days in terms of phish.com…. wonder if Mike is behind this? keep ’em guessing.

  7. JP Says:

    does seem like it’s time for Zappa to get his due

    “Appetite would kind of suck.”

    ^ If they did it, they would make it awesome….brownstone, rocket queen, my michelle – it would be sick….it also wont happen

    MM — Love your choices the last few days, especially this one and the Japan shows generally (no Fukoaka ?- sp?) and the Tokyo Tweezer! i don’t know who you are but you’ve got great taste and clearly access too. Kudos and thanks for a really fun uplifting site.

    Skid Row’s debut album…. “18 and life” with page on lead vocals. “Youth gone wild” with trey and fishman alternating lyrics…

    mark it dude!

  11. whole tour! Says:

    maybe a lil cinderella encore: “Don’t know what you got (till it’s gone)”

  12. whole tour! Says:

    follow that up with the ozzy ozbourne/lita ford acoustic set featuring an all acoustic “if i closed my eyes forever” > “crazy train” > “Iron man” > “War pigs”….and donuts.

  13. whole tour! Says:

    i have been calling Scorpions “winds of change” with full orchestra since hampton.

    “let your ballilika sing while my guitar starts to sing!”

  14. SJC Says:

    Sad to see Zevon get pulled from the mix. I was pulling for Excitable Boy

    Appetite would be next to impossible to pull off, would love to see em try though. Listening to Trey rip riffs all night would be fine with me.

    My wish – Everybody Knows This is nowhere
    Please no – Journey
    Dark Horse – Pretzel Logic
    Will end up being – Basement tapes

  15. SJC Says:

    wt! – that’s my kind of glam up there.

    GnR came at just the right time. It was getting out of control

  18. whole tour! Says:

    yeah it was…it was getting crazy.
    i remember watching mtv back in the day. Headbangers ball and shit.
    When appitite and lies dropped..it was all over for ratt and poison. The crue never recovered. and sebastian bach and dee schneider were devastated.

    Slash made them all recognize his back hand. Fucking duff man…fucking duff mckahgen. Izzy was the man.

  19. whole tour! Says:

    back when steve addler could talkm and function on a somewhat human level.

  20. SJC Says:

    The whole band was nasty. Maybe Adler, eh, but everyone else could straight rip. The masters of the riff. No band better.

  21. whole tour! Says:

    they brought me to my sha na na na na knees…thats for sure.

    use your illusion world tour was the fire. Axl causing riots, punching out people in the front row. “Live and let die” and “heaven’s door”…holy crap that was huge. Not to mention “you will be mine” was the #1 hit single on the govenator’s mega T2:judgement day. He was back..in a big way. lol

  22. whole tour! Says:

    “the garden” would be a sick cover.

  23. whole tour! Says:

    a liquid metal shape shifting terminator…are you fucking kidding me? I saw that movie at least 10 times.

  24. SJC Says:

    That was cutting edge CGI for its time.
