While the late Col. Bruce Hampton performed with Phish four times in the ’90s, he did share the stage with the Vermont quartet a fifth time. On November 28, 1995 the jam scene patriarch sat in the middle of the stage and read a newspaper as he was serenaded by Phish drummer Jon Fishman.
Fishman, who represented Phish at last night’s concert in honor of Hampton’s 70th birthday that ended with Bruce’s passing, sang Bette Midler’s “Wind Beneath My Wings” to the colonel at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum in the middle of the foursome’s 1995 Fall Tour. A segment of the Col. Bruce Hampton documentary Basically Frightened includes footage of the unusual guest appearance as well as background from Phish bassist Mike Gordon on how it went down:
