PHISH DRUMMER AMONG GUESTS AT CLUB METRONOME
Last night Phish drummer Jon Fishman played at Club Metronome in Burlington, Vermont with
Cats Under The Stars as part of the “Dead Set” series of shows. Fish and TAB
drummer Russ Lawton handled the two drum parts on a series of Grateful Dead covers for
most of the evening, with Cats Under The Stars drummer Ryan Clausen and Phish archivist
Kevin Shapiro performing behind the kit at points in relief of Lawton. Guitarist Mihali
Savoulidis also guested at last night's Dead Set.
