Friedman also opened up about what he felt was the hardest thing about the reunion – his playing, and trying to mirror what he did 30 years ago.

“If there was any challenge at all, I guess it would be playing the solos the way the fans remember them, which is something I wanted to do,” he said. “My playing has evolved so much since those songs came out, and there are so many nuances I would naturally do differently now.

“I had to resist the urge to play it like I would in 2023 and stick to the original way. For example, in a couple of those songs, I entered the solo on the downbeat, with the first note being the root of the chord . I would definitely avoid both of those things now, but apparently, I was fine with it back then.”
