Interviews: Phish.net Interviews Mike Gordon [Phish.net]
Ultimately Gordon said he wanted to “write things that are very simple.” Clearly, the “less is more” approach is on Gordon’s mind. “What can I bring to the table with Phish that I haven’t before? What can I bring to my band that would encourage involvement from the other members?” Gordon would also like to experiment with new collaborations.
Gordon offered thoughtful, honest, often revealing answers. He loves his craft, and it’s evident that he loves talking about it. You could palpably feel the excitement in his voice when he talked about rehearsals of the song “Got Away.” Excitement to get on the road and share the music he and his team are crafting, excitement to get back to making music, excitement for the next phase of his music writing career based on an approach of simplicity.
