It's been nine years since Steven Page's acrimonious split from the Barenaked Ladies, the group he fronted to become one of the bestselling Canadian acts of all time.

With less than one week to go before Page reunites with his former bandmates for a special performance at the Juno Awards on March 25, who will be inducting BNL into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, he's feeling a mix of "peace and terror."

"I'm terrified," he says in a interview with q's Tom Power. "This is the first time I will be in the same room as those guys in nine years."

While he's been communicating with Ed Robertson, Jim Creeggan, Kevin Hearn and Tyler Stewart and sharing some laughs over text, he knows full well that things will be different. BNL, for their part, have released five albums without Page.

"I know I'm not going to go there and it's not it's going to be like, 'hey let's just pick up where we left off.' But there are some elements of that and I'm excited for what I've done with those guys," he says.

It’s All Been Done: Steven Page after the Barenaked Ladies

I am sitting in Allen’s pub on the Danforth in Toronto with Steven Page, who used to live in this neighbourhood back when he used to be a Barenaked Lady. Present-day Page lives in Syracuse, N.Y., but his kids are still in Toronto, and he is here visiting over March break. We have both ordered burgers – medium with cheddar – which arrive as if part of a set-up, prompting Page to make a crack about “Dijon ketchup.”

Page is a notorious asshole/idiot BNL must be desperate to bring him back/even be in the same room with him.
BNL isn't bringing him back. They are being inducted into the Cdn Hall of Fame. Not sure if they will perform.
