Mike Gordon: interview in "Cleve Scene", Yahoo 06/14 webcast

Mike Gordon was interviewed by Cleve Scene about Phish and his current tour. About the need to keep pushing yourself:

My theory is that everyone is on the cusp between being completely cliche and, you know, just redoing things in their life that they’ve done before and being complete cutting-edge and fresh and experimental. (...) We have to keep ourselves in check. David Byrne said in some article that I read that pushing yourself out of your comfort zone is the hardest thing to do and the most important thing to do. But this doesn’t mean that you’re going to throw away all your talents and abilities and sensibilities — but whatever it is that’s a little too comfortable is going to create music that’s not of the moment.
