JOURNEY LEADER: REUNION WITH STEVE PERRY WOULD INCLUDE ARNEL PINEDA

 

 

Neal Schon says that the only way to see Steve Perry back on stage with Journey would be alongside current vocalist, sound-alike, Arnel Pineda. Schon, keyboardist Jonathan Cain, and Pineda spoke to The Huffington Post to publicize the new documentary, Don't Stop Believin'': Everyman's Journey, which premiered at New York City's Tribeca Film Festival, and talked candidly about what it would take to have Steve Perry ever rejoin Journey, with Schon saying, "I don't think there's any way not to have Arnel at this point. Who can say never? You can never say it's never going to happen. Maybe ten years from now? Six years? Who knows? But if that situation ever came up, I think it would be the both of them. And I think it would be at the point where it's a farewell tour. . . and we're done. That's the only appropriate way to go about it."

He recalled the search to find Pineda after going through two frontmen following Perry's departure. Schon explained, "We needed someone to really nail our catalog. I looked for a couple of days, non-stop on YouTube. It was a different way to go about it, instead of flying people in from all over the world. I looked and looked for like two days, and Arnel popped up at the last minute in a link. I heard the voice and went, 'He's got the high tenor voice.' I realized he was very, very strong and covered a lot of area."

Steve needs to get over himself. This arnel guy was a fan before being vocalist. If steve joined him onstage as a gracious person should, he'd give the fans what they want and probably sell more of his solo songs. this is a social media age, if he wants people to listen to his songs, then he should listen to the people first.

Journey w/o Steve
I have always been a Journey fan, but only when Steve has sung with them. Steve & Journey were the best. Nobody can beat Steve's vocals with them. Have heard Journey with other sound-alikes, but there will never be anyone like the incomparable,Steve Perry.

For the Record
i can picture Steve Perry and arnel Pineda Being on Record together but on stage NO! i mean i'ts an insult to journey Fans Because One thing Steve Perry took With him when he left or got kicked out or whatever is stadiums!!! Look at the frontiers tour 1983 to now 2012 they are playing festivals with about 11,000 maybe back then 30,000 People tops and for them to share the stage together would be an insult to the fans period....!

enough of Perry, and Arnel.
Bring back Robert Fleischman. The only time Journey was a real Rock Band and not some watered-down sugary girl band was when he was the lead singer.

STOP BASHING ARNEL
PERRY WAS ARROGANT, NEAL EVEN SAID PERRY WOULD JUST LEAVE AFTER A CONCERT, NOT TALK TO THEM, DISTANT, WHAT KIND OF RELATIONSHIP IS THAT, NOT THE KIND THAT KEEPS A BAND TOGETHER, LOOK AT AXL ROSE AND WHAT HIS ARROGANCE DID TO ONE OF THE BEST BANDS EVER, G&R, PERRY DECIDED TO LEAVE, NEAL FOUND AN AWESOME SINGER, WHO PROVED HE COULD SELL OUT MAJOR ARENAS, AND YES THEY PLAY SMALLER ONES ALSO, THEY PLAY EVERYWHERE, THEY HAVE BECOME AN INTERNATIONAL BAND, NEAL SAID THEY ARE PLAYING WHERE THEY HAVE NEVER PLAYED BEFORE, LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING ARNEL HAS, HE HAS OVER 400,000 FOLLOWERS ON TWITTER, MORE THAN ALL THE OTHER BAND MEMBERS PUT TOGETHER, PLUS ARNEL IS A GREAT PERSON WITH A HEART OF GOLD, THE PROJECTS HE DOES WITH HIS FOUNDATION, THE APFI IS AMAZING, SO WHAT THAT PERRY IS NOT IN THE BAND, HIS LOSS, IF THEY TOOK PERRY BACK I WOULD NOT BUY THEIR MUSIC OR GO TO CONCERTS, THAT WOULD BE A DISGRACE TO ARNEL, ARNEL HAS MORE HEART THAN PERRY EVER HAD!!!!!

Steve is arrogant SOB for not wanting to meet!
Arnel is humble grounded and grateful soul and is a Steve Perry fan!And wants to meet him and get his autograph! He even offered to step down since Journey now is flying high again ...Internationally too...no thanks to Steve . Although there is some difference to their voices if you close your eyes and listen to each singing it's really hard to tell. On Stage no contest . Arnel is much more and better of a live stage preformer ,singing aside ,that Steve ever was. He is like David Lee Roth and Bruce Lee in one! Steve at 60 could not last more than one live show... he would End up in the ER .. he is washed up....Even Arnel will too eventually ... But humble...not ungrateful
