The Dude of Life Sits in with Mike Gordon

Steve “The Dude of Life” Pollak sat in with Mike Gordon last night at Brooklyn, NY’s Brooklyn Bowl. The Dude of Life—who co-wrote such Phish songs as “Fluffhead,” “Slave to the Traffic Light,” “Suzy Greenberg,” “Dinner and a Movie and “Sanity,” among others—sang on a cover of Clint Ballard, Jr.’s “You’re No Good.” The song is most often associated with singer Linda Ronstadt.

Pollak sat in with the members of Phish numerous times in the ‘80s and ‘90s but has not shared the stage with the band since 2003. He also recorded the album Crimes of the Mind with the group in the early ‘90s.

A larger video of the Dude’s appearance can be found here.

Don’t forget about the killer show he did back at Wetlands on 2/5/94 with Trey and Fish for the whole show and Page sitting in for part! You can download my recording of it here:

The song is most associated with the REAL Van Halen! Linda’s version is okay, but come on… Dave belting that song out is second to none!
