Phish & Neil Young: Down By the River 10-3-98

This 19 minute clip is from Farm Aid 1998 at the World Music Theater in Tinley Park, IL outside of Chicago. The show was broadcast live on CMT. Halfway through Phish's set, they were joined by the one and only Neil Young for a few songs including Neil's Down by the River. You'll notice that Neil is playing a guitar similar to Trey's; in fact it's Trey's backup Languedoc guitar. You may also notice the epic ripping duel between the two. Young was sufficiently impressed with Phish that they would later go on to play at his Bridge School Benefit and decline his offer to be his backup band for his 1999 tour.
