Phish encored with this Skynyrd power-ballad to cap off a consistently freewheeling and fun gig on – you guessed it – a Tuesday night in Massachusetts. For their one and only performance of "Tuesday's Gone," they were joined by Scott Murawski (from Max Creek, and Mike Gordon Band, among other projects) on guitar.

After the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, humungo-media dimwits Clear Channel placed "Tuesday's Gone" on a list of songs to be banned from airplay on their radio stations. Among the many reasons Phish should revive this tune, lifting a middle finger to Clear Channel has to rank among the top.

Phish, "Tuesday's Gone" – 7/13/99, Mansfield, MA
