Mike Gordon Debuts Tom Petty Cover In Kalamazoo


Bassist Mike Gordon continued his fall tour last night at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Gordon, guitarist Scott Murawski, keyboardist Robert Walter, percussionist Craig Myers and drummer John Kimock fit a tribute to Tom Petty into the concert. Petty tragically succumbed to a heart attack on Monday night.

Murawski led the five-piece on their first ever cover of Petty’s 1993 hit “Mary Jane’s Last Dance.” Gordon’s band, nor Phish, had previously played any songs by Tom Petty. Mike’s Phish band mate, Trey Anastasio, did open a series of 2006 concerts for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.
