Phish - "Watcher of the Skies," 2010

Genesis' induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010 seemed like the perfect place for the Peter Gabriel-led lineup to finally reunite, but the timing was absolutely horrible. Gabriel was deep into rehearsals for an orchestral tour and simply couldn't get out of England. Phish played in their place, breaking out a pretty spectacular rendition of "Watcher of the Skies." "We should have played," says Rutherford. "We just couldn't get it together. I didn't know much about Phish before this and it was weird watching someone else play this song, but they did a really nice job."
