Trevor Rabin Interview/Documentary

Trevor Rabin was born in South Africa in 1954. He began playing guitar at the age of 12 after having had piano lessons since he was a toddler. In 1972 he formed the band Rabbit becoming the most successful rock act ever to emerge from South Africa. Rabin left Rabbit to pursue a solo career in London and released three solo albums. Rabin moved to Los Angeles in 1982. Here he became a member of the newly reformed progressive art/rock group Yes for the groundbreaking 90125 album as a guitarist, keyboardist, singer, songwriter, producer and recording engineer. He penned the majority of the songs on 90125 as well as Big Generator and Talk, before leaving Yes in 1994 to pursue a career as a film composer.

He's a fairly good film composer. A lot of his film scores tend to be based around action, but often the films are mediocre. His score for The Sorcerer's Apprentice was pretty good, but he needs more experience to get that consistent skill like John Williams and Danny Elfman.
