In September 2020 Steve Brown was interviewed by the guys on the SFN Rush Fancast to promote the Tributes album. You can listen to the interview and a few tracks from the album here.
Steve from RFS gave John Petrucci a few beanies for the band - we think he liked them! Dream Theater are massive Rush fans.
