Geddy Lee (Guitar Player
interview, April 1986): "Invariably, every time we decide we're going to fade out, we start getting into the fade and everyone loosens up and the track starts getting better. That happened with Mystic Rhythms. The fade-out is about a minute long because we liked every little nuance. The end of Grand Designs is also like that. There are about 7 phrases, and they're all different. None of that was planned; Neil was doing the drum track, and at the end, the sequencers were going and he just kept punching-in and going, basically flailing and hacking through it. Everybody loved it, so we decided to keep it in. Then we had to learn to play it onstage."
