Phish Drummer Finds A "Stash" In Syracuse

April 17, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Phish cover band Stash got the surprise of their lives in Syracuse, NY., last Saturday night when Phish drummer Jon Fishman showed up to their gig unannounced. After the band asked Fishman to sit in they whipped out renditions of Phish standards, "Wilson," "Funky Bitch," "Rocky Top," "NICU" and "Slave To The Traffic Light." Fishman rejoined the band for the encore, extemporaneously drumming to one of Stash's originals. The gig took place at Hungry Charlie's, a local bar popular with Syracuse University students, who more commonly refer to the joint simply as Chuck's.

LMFAO | 2011

This electro-pop uncle-nephew duo burst onto the scene with 2009’s "Shots," a song about getting totally obliterated. Two years afterward, they were still shamelessly getting wild but now insisting that everyone else join them in the fun. "I wanted a song for when we walked into a party, so I thought, 'Party rock in the house tonight/Everybody just have a good time,'" Redfoo (a.k.a. Stefan Gordy, son of Motown founder Berry Gordy) told Rolling Stone about the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem." "The 'just' was key. I made it a command to focus people on what to do now that we’re here together."
