Yesterday we reported that Journey, Foreigner and Styx were going to play together in Europe and it was interesting that none of the bands has now the original frontman anymore. Today we got news that Steve Perry wants to be back with Journey. Perry left the Bay Area AOR legends for good in 1998 to embark on a solo career. He was replaced by Steve Augeri and then Jeff Scott Soto. But in 2007 and after watching a video in Youtube, the remaining members of Journey found a Filipino guy, Arnel Pineda, who blew them away, and since then he is been the frontman of the band.
According to the members of Journey, Steve Perry asked them to be back. The band was reportedly shocked when approached by Perry to rejoin them. Journey guitarist Neal Schon told Britain’s Daily Star, “He seems to be enjoying the spotlight a little too much. The fact is he’s no longer the lead singer. He walked out.”
Why don’t we compare the 2 Journeys, with Steve and Arnel Pineda? Who do you like better?
