A Phish On The Hook

Exclusive: A Phish On The Hook

Band's Bassist Gordon Accused Of Child Endangerment
POSTED: 10:22 p.m. EDT August 18, 2003
UPDATED: 10:54 a.m. EDT August 19, 2003



NEW YORK -- A Phish is on the hook for endangering the welfare of a minor after he allegedly tried to take pictures of a young girl inside a deserted boathouse.



'Phish' Bassist Arrested


But following private conversations between the band's manager and the child's parents, there's a question about whether the band's bassist, Mike Gordon, will avoid facing that charge.

Gordon, 38, was arrested after being found late at night in a secluded area with a 9-year-old girl. The girl's parents raised an alarm when she disappeared from a backstage area at Jones Beach Theater.

New York State Park Police say Gordon showed a different side after a concert last week by The Dead. Investigators say Gordon -- who calls himself "Cactus" -- was an invited guest backstage at Jones Beach. He was not invited, they say, to take a 9-year-old girl to an isolated location behind the theater.

"The area is actually like a work area for state employees who operate boats out of that area," said Maj. Richard O'Donnell, of the New York State Park Police. "It's a darkened area, not intended for public access."

O'Donnell, who is the region's commanding officer, would not discuss what the bass player told officers when he was found with the child on a dock. But a police report obtained by NewsChannel 4 reveals "The defendant stated he wanted to take 'art photos' of the victim."

Police confirm that Gordon has never been convicted of any crime. Law enforcement sources said that after the band member was arrested, he told officers, "I may have shown bad judgment, but I am not a pedophile."

The Law enforcement sources identify the girl's father as a leader of the Hell's Angels Motorcycle Club, whom they say had also been invited backstage to watch The Dead concert. Gordon was held for police by theater security "and the victim's father's associates -- which the police report decribes as other Hell's Angels members.

When responding to a request for an interview, Phish's manager e-mailed a joint statement from Gordon and the child's parents that reads: "It is now clear to all involved that this was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and we look forward to putting this matter behind us."

Later, in a conference call, the manager said Gordon's trying to "make amends" with the family. The girl's father added that "muckraking journalists should put the story to rest."

Both declined to discuss whether the musician is paying compensation.

When asked by NewsChannel 4 if there was any reasonable explanation for Gordon to have been with the girl at 1:00 AM in a secluded boat house, Maj. O'Donnell of the State Park Police said "I have no explanation for it."

The commander says he "absolutely" stands by the police investigation and has referred the bass player's boathouse rendezvous case to the Nassau County district attorney for prosecution.

The DA's office says the evidence is being evaluated. Regardless of whether Gordon has to face a judge next month, law-enforcement sources say unofficial justice was already delivered. The Hell's Angels, who detained Gordon for police, were not, the sources say, gentle with sensitive areas of the rock star's body.

Why wouldn't he just ask the girls parents if he could take her? Why would he be so stupid?

Because Hells Angels charge too much for their underage daughters, so he was trying to be sneaky.

a- dont be a pedophile
b- dont invite Hells Angels to your show
c- don't be sneaky with people who will kill you as soon as look at you

I blame this on the hell's angels, not mike.

I also hope that no-one from the Phish organization ever attends a stupid "the dead" show ever again.
-I know i wont.
-IMO, they suck, and they ("the dead" without jerry garcia) made a big mistake going on the road again.
The Dead are nothing but bad times anymore.

I pray that the band (phish) never attends "the dead" ever again
This is Crazy.
-I can't wait to hear what trey has to say, though it will be generalized what he says to the public about this (if he is allowed to say anything at all)
-I am sure that treys head is just swirling in circles about new rules and shit on the road, on the bus:lol:

This only strengthens my love for this band.
-They've never been in trouble before.
-Yeah, i hope that they just go back to europe or japan again, i'll sell everything i own again to hop back on that train with phish!~
-United States is nothing but trouble for these events.

Keep shroomin,
GG :heartpump: :heartpump: :heartpump: :heartpump:

Making amends with the hell's angels = $$$,$$$,$$$.

I wouldn't even doubt if mike was set up.

I dunno, i am floored by this, i am pissed.

I want "The Dead" to immediately stop their evil 2003 tour.
-And never tour again. Sad, but this is how i feel.
-They are nothing but trouble anymore.
-Jerry Garcia, i think, would want it this way now..

Which part? The part were he was trying to take pictures of a little girl, or the part were the Angels roughed him up for it?

.... why is everyone in this country so paranoid? I was a child model, hell, I was in a chip n dales promo video (I played an elf..). it's entiredly plausible that mike was just taking pictures and wanted a rustic setting..
it's the same way with michael jackson... there's no proof of anything other than him seeming like he'a always on e. last I checked that wasn't a crime, but everyone WANTS to believe that he is fucking little boys? why? it seems like a gossip voyeurism - people like to talk about little kids getting fucked, they like to think about it. fucking weirdos.

as for the fucking hells angels... they are shit. they run blunt bro's in vancouver, they are all crackheads, and they're stupid. altamount was their fault.. I understand why the counterculture has always been so interested in them, cause they're rebels and all, but it was a severly misguided interest: they are shit.

Try saying that to one of their faces. Taking pictures of a young child without the parents permission is just wrong. Assuming he had only good intentions, he made a mistake, and paid for it. Your comments about people being paranoid is way off base. People don't want their kids molested, and tend to err on the side of caution.

It has been suggested in some circles that the Hell's Angels may not be the most responsible group of individuals in the world.
