On a Side Note....Edit
- Peart's daughter had died in a single car crash, and his wife passed away 10 months later with problems stemming off of cancer, but Peart said she had died from a broken heart "it was a slow suicide from apathy." "She just didn't care." he said in a later interview.
- Test for Echo reached position number one on the Mainstream Rock chart.
- The hit song Driven became a primary bass showcase for Lee's performances.
