Phish Rocks with Kid Rock

Phish w/ Kid Rock

You Shook Me All Night Long, We're An American Band

Fri, September 29, 2000

Thomas & Mack Center

Las Vegas, NV

In the description of this video on YouTube, Phish video sharing legend tdunski writes, “I'm kind of hesitant to share this one cause this definitely spelled out the end of our band, but it is what it is.”

Well believe it or not, this also spelled the beginning of Jamtopia. One night, a buddy showed me this and a bunch of other killer Phish videos on YouTube and it gave me the idea to create a site about great concert videos.

And personally, I think this video is great. For starters, you've got Kid Rock, an unlikely special guest to say the least. Perhaps not as unlikely as Phish with Jay-Z, but still.

On top of that you get two rock & roll classics and Phish rarities all in one — AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long (played once) and Grand Funk Railroad's We're An American Band (played twice).

Plus, you gotta give Bob (hey, that's what PA calls him) credit for the entertaining freestyle throughout American Band.

I got a call after the show from a friend who overheard someone say “fuck that, I didn't pay to see Kid Rock.” But I just don't get all the negativity — I'd love to have been there. Looked like a hell of a good time to me.

I remember hearing this after a download a couple years ago. I don’t know why people would get mad about seeing Kid Rock. If he performed the whole show, I might see reason for being disgruntled, but a few songs that no one has ever heard before either band perform is just something incredible. I don’t happen to be a huge Kid Rock fan but I enjoyed it so much. Keep up with the great posts!
