I first wrote this quiz the other way around
90215 was originally a solo project for Trevor Rabin, but as more personel from the band “Yes” came on board the project, they eventually decided it would be included as a Yes album. Rabin eventually released a project from some of the original solo demos he had recorded before the others came in. The solo work had a nearly identical album cover, and was called 90124.
I auditioned for a role as a car salesman in the James Franco TV adaptation of Stephen King’s “11/22/63”. Would have spent two solid minutes on screen, just James and me. Sigh.
