In one of Quadrophenia’s sadder moments, Jimmy becomes even more dejected when he realizes that the punk leader he once idolized and worshipped has buckled in the face of the establishment and has taken a job as a hotel bell boy. When he appeared on stage during the 1995 Halloween show, Phish crew member Leigh Fordham reprised the musical role that Keith Moon created as the original Bell Boy.

Submit notes/corrections is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
