rex2112Hey there phriends. I'll confess up front that I'm not a hardcore phan like you guys are (the fact that I keep using "ph" tags me as an outsider, probably). I've loved Phish since Junta, but my heart always belonged to a different band. This is why I understand and appreciate the love you have for Phish. I fucking love every show I go to and the crowd is amazingly cool each time. It's impossible to have a bad time at a Phish show, especially in the bowl. If the energy and vibe weren't enough, the music then proceeds to kick your ass with bliss. Love it!

THE POINT: Around 11:00 into Rock in Roll it sounds an awful lot like Trey is playing the main lick from the solo in Rush's "By-Tor & the Snow Dog" (album: Fly By Night, '75). I throw in the year so that you'll actually consider listening to it.

Here's it's all cued up for ya:

Listen to the full song to get a taste of the awesomeness of original Rush. As a music lover, you owe it to yourself.


So I'm really curious to hear what everyone here has to say. It certainly *sounds* like the same lick. But is it coincidence? An homage? What?
Score: 2
