“This was the first song we worked on. It’s funny: It’s always a little hard to get started – a little scary, too, I guess – but once we get a few things under our belts, or even a song, then we’re going for it. We had a lot of discussions about things, and then we went in and just did this – it happened very quickly and naturally.
“What’s so cool about this track – what’s cool about the whole record, really – is the way John Myung really dialed in his bass tone. He makes more of an impact on this record than probably any other record we’ve done. Rich was very helpful in this regard, maybe because of his history working with Geddy Lee. John and Rich got such a happening bass tone. It makes such a difference – it’s very biting and present.
“John has a nice bass moment in the song. It goes by quickly, but he’s doing some cool stuff. We always encourage him to do things like that – ‘John Myung, you do some great stuff, man! Let’s see what you got!’ He always gets excited where he has those spots to step out.”
