Comeback: Phish Has Returned But The Scene Has Changed [Burlington Free Press]

“I was the one who didn’t want us to break up. I would say it was more Trey that was calling for the breakup and I was the one saying, ‘Let’s not break up,'” Gordon, Phish’s bass player, said prior to his Dec. 30 solo show at Higher Ground in South Burlington. “Soon after that I was so happy about it — ‘Oh, I can do other stuff I don’t have time for.’ Musically I wasn’t doing much because Phish was there filling that void. It was really great having to do it (break up); it was a great kick in the butt.

“That’s the thing about Phish coming back that felt a little funny to me,” Gordon said, “because I got gung-ho on this career path, and here’s fans getting excited about this band I haven’t thought much about in four years, and I’m like, ‘Oh, you want to talk about that?'”
