A series of essays wherein I explore the numerous musical identities of my favorite musician: from child prodigy to teen idol to guitar hero to singer/songwriter to award-winning in-demand film composer.
Featuring news/updates and commentary/analysis of Trevor's career and associated projects.

(a real) update from the Maestro

Trevor posted to Facebook last night regarding his work on the upcoming CD/DVD release as well as an injury which occurred before the run of shows in June.  It's great to read that he's recovered now!

Another interview coming up...?

Spotted on Instagram...
Of course, Trevor loves to meet dogs so that's nothing surprising but what is potentially interesting about this encounter is the posting - from the Instagram account of Joe Armstrong, the host of the Independent's Day podcast which (according to their website) brings you independent artists, producers and music industry visionaries with in-depth interviews, live performances and inside information - without hype and direct from the artists who practice their craft.

So I'll be keeping an eye out to see if my supposition is correct and hopefully on a future Wednesday we'll have another new interview to enjoy (not this coming Wednesday, though, I already checked).

Trevor on Jonesy's Jukebox

(Yes I'll have some content today after all!)
Sex Pistols' guitarist Steve Jones welcomed Trevor on his LA-based radio show today, and it seems he might have premiered his song "Fragile" (which readers will recall was originally used in the finale of Agent X); hopefully the podcast featuring the interview will be uploaded on the KLOS site either later today or tomorrow.

ETA: here is the link!

Time-travel Tuesday: that one with the parrots

My thanks to Marcelo Henrique for uploading this clip from Yes' 1984 appearance on the German television show Bananas which was previously somewhat notorious in our fandom due to its' whimsical staging (the guys somehow find themselves in the middle of the desert with a flock of parrots, a traditional British red telephone box, and an exploding television) - and now here is the complete version of the video (in really great quality).  For several years all that's been available was about half of the segment.  Interspersed with their in-studio miming are scenes from the official promotional video for "Owner of a Lonely Heart."

Time-travel Tuesday: taking the Southern route

Earlier in the year I posted regarding a film clip which had been shared on tumblr from Yes' 1985 South American tour, and uploaded today on the Yes Source channel is what appears to be the entire segment (or nearly so) of Chris and Trevor's appearance on Argentinian media - and it does address the issues they experienced with touring in the area.

Spotted on Twitter: it was lovely to see this Tweet from author Simon Barrow (who is also a member of the Yesfans community) giving me a shout-out for my 2012 interview with Trevor.

Thank you very much, Simon!  I am always gratified to know that fans enjoyed the interview; I count it as one of my proudest moments.

Simon's new book Solid Mental Grace: Listening to the Music of Yes is available from the usual online retailers, and I've provided a link for the synopsis from the publisher, Cultured Llama.
