By now, most of us aware of Jimmy Fallon’s incredible musical tastes and talents. The latest example of this will come during the week of of May 10th, when the late night hosts looks to celebrate the June reissue of The Rolling Stones’ 1972 classic Exile On Main Street by rounding up different artists and having them cover classic songs from the album each night.

Though an exact list of participants has yet to be announced, according to Billboard, Phish is confirmed to one of them. On May 13th, the band will give its first television performance since reforming in 2009. No word on which song Trey and co. will be covering, though they do have experience with the album; last October, they covered in its entirety at Phish Festival 8.

We’ll let you know once the other participants are announced. According to Fallon, a certain Rolling Stones member might also take part. “The other person that might be here rhymes with ‘Keith Richards.’ But I can’t say his name,” he explained.
