Phish Debuts Cover Of Led Zeppelin’s ‘No Quarter’ In 2011
Phish has played many covers since returning to the stage at Hampton Coliseum in 2009 following a five-year breakup but only a handful remain in the repertoire. One of those covers, Led Zeppelin’s “No Quarter,” was debuted by Phish on this date in 2011 at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey.
Keyboardist Page McConnell handles vocals on Phish’s cover of “No Quarter” as he does on other Zeppelin covers the foursome has performed including “Good Times Bad Times” and “Ramble On.” Guitarist Trey Anastasio unleashed an impressive guitar solo at the Arts Center that made “No Quarter” an instant winner.
Phish has since covered “No Quarter” 14 more times as of June 1, 2020. The most recent version took place at the North Charleston Coliseum in North Charleston, South Carolina on December 6, 2019. Yet it’s hard to beat the surprise factor of what went down in Holmdel nine years ago today.
