Kravitz: Phish to Cover Led Zeppelin

Longtime Phish photographer Jeff Kravitz is the son of legendary Atlantic City radio personality Pinky Kravitz. In his blog, Pinky predicts Phish will cover Led Zeppelin when the band performs in Atlantic City on Halloween. The elder Kravitz writes, “Most who read this column know I have a seagull that flies around listening in to secret conversations and then relates the information it gathers to me. This time it was a magic mockingbird and it tells me Phish will cover an album of Led Zeppelin’s Sunday evening. It’ll be interesting to see if my bird is right or if I need a new bird. Personally, that’s what I’m pulling for … a little Zeppelin in Boardwalk Hall. They’ve flown helicopters in Boardwalk Hall, but never had Zeppelin in there.”

Trey Anastasio, a longtime Zeppelin fanatic, recently told the LA Times that this year’s Halloween cover is of particular importance to him. Led Zeppelin is the only band Anastasio has covered with Phish, Oysterhead, Trey Anastasio Band, 70 Volt Parade and Dave Matthews & Friends. Phish debuted Zeppelin’s “The Rover” this past summer.

listen here Kravitz…i hope you’re right buddy! but i think you’re just insane…see, this is me being safe, by posting flaming comments to message boards from the comfort of my own bedroom… i pray you’re correct and they do Zeppelin…now that you know they’re doing LZ – what album are they playing there smarty-pants???

Hmmm… say he’s correct… I wonder if Phish will then tell Jeff to hit the road next time he wants to get photo credits…

I like me some Phish now, but the last band they need to cover is Led Zepplin. That would definitely be painful to the ears.

Eh, it doesnt really track with what Trey said in an interview earlier.. that it’s really pushed him as a musician and he’d get the most out of the halloween thing than any other band member… He’s DONE zep, it’s not going to be a stretch or anything new for him as a musician if they do it. I wont mind, of course, but I’m just not convinced.. Tom M. was egging on people who thought it might be YES, but that’s a headfake… I’m still pulling for Zappa…

Hindenburg Disaster happened only 60 miles away from Boardwalk Hall. Makes sense in a warped sort of way.

Let there be Jimi for Halloween. Are you experienced?

Jer October 28, 2010, 22:56:56

bradley draw October 28, 2010, 23:28:19

jimmy hendrix is what I heard from the famous mocking bird. Electric lady land.

harry hood October 29, 2010, 15:48:44

Brice would be cool, Zeppelin would be sweet, Hendrix would Rock. Electric Lady Land is amazing…

JB Weir October 29, 2010, 16:06:43

spike October 29, 2010, 19:17:06

“Pinky” Kravitz!!! love that name!

kevin October 30, 2010, 00:03:44

Physical Graffitti would be cool, Hope they are practicing cause that cover of “The Rover” sucks. Last year’s Exile show in Indio was perfect.

Dan P. October 30, 2010, 02:48:10

Its gonna be Born to Run folks. Write it down

Tribe Soccer October 30, 2010, 18:29:59

Would love to hear it! Next best thing to a Zeppelin reunion, in my opinion! And Phish would kill it, like always! Hope this dude know’s what he’s talking about! And wish I could be there!!!

Harleymatt October 31, 2010, 01:09:06
