UK Magazine Guitarist has a lengthy interview with Rush guitar player Alex Lifeson, discussing favorite gear, playing three-hour sets on the current tour and what is the toughest song to play during the Moving Pictures part of the show:

Well YYZ is not an easy song to play, on a nightly basis it's always a challenge to play for everybody. You have to be on your toes with all the parts. I'd say that and The Camera Eye are the most challenging songs to play from the album. But at the same time Red Barchetta is the same sort of thing – it has a lot of parts that really require a good execution. It's easy to be sloppy and ruin those songs.
