Phish performed Kiss' lynchpin anthem only once, during the legendary 2/20/93 second set at the Roxy. The song requires tuning the guitar down a half step – and the song’s performance was a step down from the rest of the set. During the “Weekapaug” weirdness, an impressive (though not impeccable) Gene Simmons impersonator appeared in the audience, near the stage and in front of Page.
As soon as Mike and Page started laying down the rhythm, Trey pulled the visitor onstage for a rousing though brief rendition of a song that includes the lyrics, “You say you wanna go for a spin / The party’s just begun. We’ll let you in” and “You’re looking fancy and I like your style.” It was a bit of comic relief, a theatrical pause in a roller-coaster setlist - very ‘70s!

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
