Previews: Mike Gordon – Sharing In The Groove [The Weekender]

“People are surprised sometimes,” Gordon, in a recent phone interview from his Burlington, Vt., home, says of his solo shows. “First of all, I’m singing all the songs, but I’m also talking between songs, which I never do at a Phish concert, and I’m jumping up and down a lot. … Fans definitely (see) a whole different side of Mike.

“One thing I like about Phish is that it’s the opposite of that. There’s someone else that’s the bandleader, the singer, the songwriter, the soloist, and because of that I get to get into this Zen state and play the bass lines and just concentrate on the bass. I get to really get wrapped up in that, and in my solo career I’m really trying to flex those other parts of my personality.”
