History

Phish has teased this bong-rock Joe Walsh hit a few times, most notably on 7/23/97 in the same set as a crazy “YEM” and one of the most highly regarded all-time versions of “Ghost.” For that performance, the band actually played a full verse and chorus of the rock anthem before sliding into “Chalk Dust.” Other teases and jams of the song showed up in the 2/16/91 and 5/17/92 “Possums” and the 12/7/97 “Jesus Just Left Chicago.”
