» Coexistence


Seldom is the creative process undertaken in a vacuum. With respect to music, the first ears to hear the composition can have a significant impact on it, and will often determine its future.

In the case of Coexistence, Rick's son Nash misheard a single word in the song on first listen. When corrected, Nash suggested that the song made more sense with the word he thought he heard.  He was right and earned co-writing credit. The word was coexistence.
