In a Q&A session at Manchester’s Dancehouse Theatre, Rush frontman Geddy Lee was asked if there are any songs in the band’s catalog he wishes he could redo.
He said (via Blabbermouth):
“Oh, God. Probably the longer I looked, the more I would find. It’s funny what happens in time – when you finish a record… I’m a harsh judge of a record I just finished.
“And then you go through this period where you go, ‘Oh…’ You’ve taken a month away from it, you’re out on tour and you’re learning the songs and you hear it on the radio and you go, ‘Oh, that was better than I thought it was.’
“And then time travels at quite an alarming rate and, for me, when I look back at the very old stuff, I hear things that I couldn’t possibly have heard about those songs.
“So when I look at the earliest records, of course, there are a few things that I would rather have redone at the time, but you can’t change the past. And I tend to appreciate it more than I thought I would. There are very few I would really go back and change again because I don’t think that’s the way it works.”
