More Cowbell

Standard

Everyone familar with the classic SNL skit starring Christopher Walken and Will Ferrell knows ” More Cowbell ” will cure all that ails you. Apparently Jon Fishman, the drummer from Phish knows it too. He recently secured himself a place in the Guinness World Book of Records for ” Largest Cowbell Jam ” ever assembled. Over 1600 people gathered together in downtown Burlington, Vermont to jam on such cowbell heavy favorites as ” Time Has Come Today ” by the Chambers Brothers and of course the Blue Oyster Cult classic, ” Don’t Fear the Reaper. ” Not only did they set a world record, they also raised money for flood relief caused by Hurricane Irene last summer. You can read about it ( and watch the video ) at Burlington Free Press: http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/article/20120414/NEWS02/120414010/cowbell-phish-burlington

Watch Fishman kill it on ” Don’t Fear the Reaper “:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=gA2n1zgm2Qk
