A major step in live TV production was taken this week - as Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio performed live in studio on The Tonight Show
Anastasio was joined by the show's house band The Roots as he performed “I Never Needed You Like This Before” from his new, surprise album Lonely Trip
Fallon seemed most excited about the performance - saying “Here in studio – I can’t believe I’m saying this! – is the great Trey Anastasio!”
Anastasio and Phish are no strangers to late night TV - in 2014 and 2016 they were on The Tonight Show Staring Jimmy Fallon. They also appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2000 and 2002. They also collaborated with Jimmy Fallon when they were the musical guests on Saturday Night Live in 2002.
