What Did They Do Next Part 18a – Trevor Rabin 459

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

Trevor in rock mode

This week marks something of a departure for us here at YMP Towers. In our ever-popular what did they do next series, we have reached the point where Trevor Rabin left the band after the Talk Tour in 1995. He went off to pursue his other musical avenue of choice – film scores. So that means we will be listening not to a rock or progressive album next week but a film soundtrack. That should be very interesting. We are also hoping to have Julia from the fabulous Rabinesque blog with us next week because she knows rather more than we do about Trevor’s soundtrack work and should be able to fill in a lot of the details for us.

We also have a 2 pence this week about the new band, Arc Of Life. Here’s their first album, courtesy of Daniel Krohn who found it on Amazon:

Theme music

The music I use is the last movement of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. This has been used as introduction music at many Yes concerts. My theme music is not take from a live concert – I put it together from the following two creative commons sources: thanvannispen and

I for one am really looking forward to Arc of Life. I’ve talked to Dave Kerzner about the project on several of the Cruise to the Edges as it has developed-the cruise was the start of this project. Jimmy has been on at least 1 cruise, where he was often with Billy & Jon & Dave. I sat with them at a table near the pool stage bar one afternoon.
Note: with all of the many projects that Dave & Billy have, I don’t know that AoL will be a real band with more releases & any shows. I hope so, but only time will tell (pun intended). I think Yes fans will really love the music on the album. Keep in mind, it was Dave & Billy’s idea. If you know Dave’s music, you have a head start, but with the added ideas of the others.
Could this be a future Yes? Yes. I’ve been saying for years that Jimmy Haun is the best choice to succeed Steve when Steve retires or passes. I saw Jimmy with Circa in concert. Watch Jimmy when Circa does the Yes medley- that’s all you need to see & hear. Jimmy is good friends with Billy & Jay, now Jon, so he would easily slide into Yes as the guitarist. And Jay is the obvious successor to Alan on drums. My preferred choice for keyboardist in Yes is Tom Brislin, but as he’s tied up with Kansas for who knows how long, Dave Kerzner could handle the job, as long as he is allowed to continue his own solo career & side projects he would be happy.
