update: Trevor on Debateable

But first, here's a totally adorable photo op from the 21st, as Our Trev is once again meeting the army of Rabid Rabinites across the land:
I previously mentioned Trevor's appearance on SiriusXM's Debateable - he called in from Boston for episode two, while guitarist Vernon Reid and drummer Steve Jordan were in the studio with hosts Mark Goodman and Alan Light.  The primary topic of discussion was this year's RnRHOF nomination and the ongoing relevance of the organization.  Trevor observed that the type of music Yes is known for isn't normally the populist choice   He also noted that at 62 he was the "baby" of the Yes-related group of potential inductees.  He was asked about the evolution of the legacy of Yes, and Trevor discussed how Chris' passing has had an impact on that legacy.   He admitted that he's not even really aware of "who's in and who's out" when asked to consider who should be installed.  He elaborated on one of the surprises of his career - working with LL Cool J on "Deepest Bluest" for Deep Blue Sea - and noted "how smart the guy was, how musical he was."  Trevor also spoke again of Johnny Fourie, citing him as "my favorite guitarist ever" (and as a peer, apparently an influence on John McLaughlin) but "no one's ever heard of him."

Here is Mark Goodman's Instagram post from that day:
