In Their Own Words

"The first day we ever played together, the basis of the song 'Anthem' was one of the things that we sort of jammed on....the whole being greater than the parts was apparent right there and that was the birth of a song on day one." - Neil Peart, "Rockline", December 2, 1991
"[Howard Ungerleider] moved on to crashing at Ray [Danniel's] house, where he had to suffer Ray's dogs - a German shepherd, 'which used to look at me and growl, it was always pissed off,' and a 'little, white, fluffy thing, like a snowball, which just jumped up and down,' he explains. One day it all got too much - for Howard. 'I was in Ray's back yard, the fucking snowdog thing was jumping up, and the German shepherd was biting me...' Of course when he recounted it to the guys, they thought it was hilarious. 'A biter, and the Snow Dog,' they laughed. 'Sounds like an epic song!'" - Chemistry
