I feel like I want to write some songs and I don't
know how to go about doing it.
Usually it's the lyrics that are a problem,
and I think I am not really cut out to be a lyricist.
- Mike Gordon

A lot of the great songwriters in history have been collaborators,
with a separate lyricist.
- Mike Gordon

Surrender to the flow.
- Mike Gordon

I'm not really satisfied with anything I have written to date.
- Mike Gordon

Last tour my bass rig was breaking down every other night.
That was a pain.
We would get on stage and Trey would count off the song,
and I'd play the first note and nothing would be there.
Those guys would just roll their eyes.
- Mike Gordon

I don't really have a favorite bass player.
I listen to a lot of bluegrass.
But then again, I'm not a typical bluegrass bass player.
I was really into the Grateful Dead,
and I still am -
I don't listen to them too much,
but for me they are a big influence.
- Mike Gordon

I think one thing that helped the sound change,
it's a real subtle thing; it's just one switch on my bass,
it has three positions, and I usually boost the mid-range frequency,
I lowered the frequency that I boost,
and that goes out to the sound system,
- Mike Gordon

I want to take some jams and really concentrate on
hooking up with Page because,
since he's the only one not next to me,
and his sound is mainly coming from my monitor rather than through the air,
it's a little harder for me to hook up with him.
- Mike Gordon

Lately Fish and I have been hooking up more,
which is a good thing because it's just been a struggle
for me as a bass player to play with someone who's
so creative on the drums,
and lately it's been really good, especially during sound checks.
- Mike Gordon

I like to be sort of grounded with Fish.
But, at the same time, I think probably what's unique
about us is the way other dynamics happen,
where I'll play off Trey for awhile.
When we start playing a jam, I don't usually know what's going to happen,
I don't have a plan.
- Mike Gordon

I'm not really allowed to talk about the Dead though.
I think when we are at our best, we definitely do things
that the Dead or no other band could do.
We explore things and take things to the extreme.
- Mike Gordon

Travelling to different countries is a goal.
I wouldn't mind playing huge places if we got an opportunity to,
but it's nice to play small places too.
Fish was saying yesterday that he doesn't ever want to play stadiums,
or maybe he would once, he said.
- Mike Gordon

The way that we imitate each others' riffs is something
that other bands don't do as much.
If we're jamming with a jazz band, or I am jamming with a jazz band,
I have to catch myself, the tendency is always to do that.
- Mike Gordon

There's no way we could play a country song as well
as a country band or a Latin song as well as a Latin band.
We could never expect to do that.
We just keep doing what we do, what we know how to do.
We sound like ourselves.
- Mike Gordon

We have been trying to play a lot of different kinds of music,
and probably the next album will go back more towards
the direction where you couldn't classify each song
as a certain kind of music.
This album you can.
- Mike Gordon

I want to get an handful of spare basses to use first of all if mine breaks,
and second, to learn some things about aspects of basses that I like,
so Paul can build those aspects into it.
- Mike Gordon

This is my second bass that Paul built me.
There were some changes that were made.
Sometimes I think of changes that could be made having
to do with both the sound and the feel.
It's definitely a beautiful instrument.
- Mike Gordon

the covers for the new version of Elektra.
