    Trevor Rabin and EVH

    This is probably an old story but I don't know anything about it. Did Trevor Rabin say that EVH stole one of his licks in the past? I heard something vague about it but never heard the real story. Can someone enlighten me on that subject?

    Yup are correct on that but it wasn't Eddi that stole it - it was Jennifer Aniston. Here is the footage:

    I found this as well from the VHLinks archives back from 2001.

    I liked Trevor. I wonder whatever happened to him? Excellent player. I know not everyone liked his tone.

    He's become a major film composer. He's got a better job now even than when he was in Yes. I always loved his playing.

    Trevor Rabin has scored over three dozen films which include: Bad Company, Con Air, Homegrown, Armageddon, Jack Frost (in which Rabin appeared onscreen in two scenes), Deep Blue Sea, Gone in 60 Seconds, Remember the Titans, The 6th Day, The Banger Sisters, Kangaroo Jack, Bad Boys 2, The Great Raid, Exorcist: The Beginning, National Treasure, Coach Carter, Glory Road, Snakes on a Plane, The Glimmer Man, Flyboys, Gridiron Gang, Hot Rod, The Guardian, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Get Smart, Race to Witch Mountain, 12 Rounds, G-Force, and The Sorcerer's Apprentice

    Fun Fact: Trevor's song Ryan is in an Indie Pop band called Grouplove. They are the band behind that song that was in those hipster iPod touch ads from last year.

    Not a bad band, though two of them can get really annoying on the vocals at times. They have some great harmonies! Ryan is also damn good drummer.

    (I hate most indie music, just for those who care to know)

    Ed 'borrowed' Trevor's riff from "Eyes of Love" for "Balutchetherium" and Trevor has a new album, "Jacaranda", due out on May 8th of this year. Can't wait to hear it...:thumbup:

    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.

    I would imagine that a lot of that is just coincidence. I doubt Ed or Vh would just rip off someone blatently.

    I don't think that sounds like Hot For Teacher. To each his own.

    Ask Rick Derringer his opinion on that matter.
    If it's BROWN, flush it DOWN.

    GO STEELERS!
