Gordon later played bass for the Rolling Stones and worked with George Michael, Boy George, Blur, Primal Scream, Kylie Minogue, S’Express, the Tiger Lillies and many other whose names are now long forgotten. Gordon later worked in Bombay with Hindi film singer Asha Bhosle, in Istanbul with Turkish diva Sezen Aksu and became a sought-after location recordist.
Following his return to pop territory in 2003 with the release of his first solo CD 'The Baboon in the Basement', he has never looked back, although he will not say why. Gordon, described in 2009 by Classic Rock magazine as being “like Brian Eno fronting 10cc at a cleverness convention”, released the sixth and final part of the Mammal Trilogy 'Include Me Out' in 2013. A selection of Gilbert & Sullivan faves was released in 2016, titled 'Gilbert, Gordon & Sullivan'. In 2017, Gordon attempted to 'Dump the Trump' and continued the theme in 2018 with his new album 'Thanks For All the Fish'.
