Because I’m an avid eighties buff, I’m hoping that this news is true. According to reports, Steve Perry has asked to rejoin Journey.
In 1998, Steve left the band to seek out a solo career. Then, the group found Arnel Pineda on Youtube and he became their singer in 2007. Since Glee covered their song, Don’t Stop Believin’, they have gotten popular once again.
Guitarist Neal Schon said, “He seems to be enjoying the spotlight a little too much. The fact is he’s no longer the lead singer. He walked out.”
Someone needs to make this happen! Seriously, Arnel saved the band by joining it and taking vocal duties, but he’s no Steve Perry….and he never will be.
