  • Steve Perry Looks Back on Touring With Van Halen and the Eddie Collaboration That Might Have Been

    On October 6th, Steve Perry got a text from his recording engineer that read, “Oh man, Eddie Van Halen. I can’t believe it.” The former Journey frontman had no idea what he was talking about. “I don’t watch the news anymore,” he says. “And so I picked up the phone and said, ‘What’s going on?'” When he heard the tragic news that the guitarist died after a long battle with cancer, Perry’s mind instantly went back to 1978 when Van Halen opened for Journey for eight weeks on the Infinity tour. He phoned up Rolling Stone to tell stories from...

    Founding guitarist Neal Schon took to Twitter late tonight to announce that Randy Jackson and Narada Michael Walden will become the band's new bass player and drummer, respectively. He also confirmed the addition of a sixth member, keyboardist/vocalist Jason Derlatka. The trio join Schon, keyboardist Jonathan Cain and vocalist Arnel Pineda. This will be a return engagement for longtime American Idol judge Jackson, who was a member of Journey from 1985 through 1987, appearing on 1986's Raised on Radio. Walden is a renowned songwriter, singer and producer who has drummed in Mahavishnu Orchestra and alongside Jeff Beck, Tommy Bolin and...
  • The Colonoscopy Journal by Dave Barry

    email from friend | 2/22/2008 | Dave Barry
    I called my friend Andy Sable, a gastroenterologist, to make an appointment for a colonoscopy. Andy was waiting with a nurse and an anaesthesiologist. I did not see the 17,000-foot tube, but I knew Andy had it hidden around there somewhere. I was seriously nervous at this point. There was music playing in the room, and I realized that the song was 'Dancing Queen' by ABBA. 'You want me to turn it up?' said Andy, from somewhere behind me... 'Ha ha,' I said. And then it was time, the moment I had been dreading for more than a decade. If...

    Ringo Starr will perform two shows in Israel later this year in defiance of the anti-Israel BDS movement that calls for the complete isolation of the Jewish State. The former Beatle made the announcement on his personal website. It comes just a week after New Zealand singer Lorde cancelled her planned Tel Aviv concert after a vocal campaign by BDS activists. Ringo has chosen a band that includes fellow rock legends Steve Lukather of Toto, Greg Rollie of Journey and Graham Gouldman of 10cc as the All-Starrs. The two shows are booked for Tel Aviv’s Menorah Mivtahim Arena on June...
  • Could Bay Area Rockers Journey Break up Over Donald Trump?

    San Jose Mercury News ^ | August 8, 2017 | Jim Harrington
    Can Journey survive Donald Trump? That’s the question some fans are asking. And things definitely look iffy for the multiplatinum-selling Bay Area band right now, in the wake of guitarist and co-founder Neal Schon taking to Twitter to blast certain bandmates for a recent trip to the White House. Schon was referencing a visit to Washington D.C. in late July, when three members — singer Arnel Pineda, keyboardist Jonathan Cain and bassist Ross Valory, says Billboard — posed for pictures with the President and staffers as well as reportedly met press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. To many – including NBC...

    Megachurch Pastor Paula White Marries 3rd Husband Former Journey Rocker Jonathan Cain; She's His 4th Wife Popular televangelist and megachurch pastor Paula White tied the knot for the third time with rocker Jonathan Cain last month and this time could just be the charm. White's Chicago-born husband made a name for himself in the music industry playing with the bands Bad English and Journey. He wrote Journey's mega-hit song "Don't Stop Believin.'" White, who hosts the television show "Paula White Today," which has aired on BET and TBN, shared a message with her Facebook followers celebrating the April 26 wedding....

    This is a fantastic 5-minute video of a black man at a Republican campaign office talking about his journey from being a Democrat to becoming a conservative. Having gone on the same journey seven years ago, I’m ever-intrigued by what causes this shift. And more importantly, how to nurture it in others. In this case, the gentleman in the video was a Democrat because (1) he is black and therefore liberal party alliance is automatic, and (2) he had a long-held belief that the Democratic Party was the party for everyday people. But then, several years ago, he had a...

    President Obama has gone from “yes we can” to “so sue me.” The president’s standoffish remark this week about a Republican lawsuit was a reminder of how much Obama’s rhetoric has changed since his 2008 campaign and its promise to deliver a new kind of politics. These ten Obama quotations illustrate the transformation. 1. July 27, 2004: “There's not a liberal America and a conservative America. There's the United States of America.” Obama vaults onto the national stage with a call for unity at the Democratic National Convention in Boston. 2. Feb. 5, 2008: “We know that what began as...

    Do you believe in fairy tales? I don’t simply because I’ve already outgrown my childhood fascination for magic wands, fairy godmothers and frogs and beasts that turned into handsome princes. And let’s not even talk about damsels in distress who had to wait for their superficial saviors to hand them their own pre-conceived notion of happiness. But I do believe in the power of luck and hardwork and that if you have what it takes to weather the storms and climb the heavens to chase your stars, more than likely, you'll be able to catch more than what you have...

    As written by me earlier this month, I came in contact with a lady who travelled from Rotterdam to Hoboken, New Jersey on the ship Maasdam IV, thirteen days in june 1962. Just like the Oswalds did. remarkable: never before was a passenger of the 1962-trip tracked down by anyone. remarkable: she was staying in cabin 471, the Oswalds slept in 473: they were neighbours. remarkable: she saw Oswald a lot, didn't talk to him. She never saw Marina and June. She sent me two pictures: first time we see pictures of the ship during those days in june 1962....

    I am going to cite a few Bible verses for you, and I want you to ask yourself if you see them as realities you can relate to from experience, or merely idealistic concepts that perhaps sound pleasing to hear, and may believe them to a degree, but just not now, not at this particular moment in time. 1 John 5:4-5 4 for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5 Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son...

    Reality TV star and accused White House gatecrasher Michaele Salahi has run off with Journey's lead guitarist. Salahi's husband, Tareq, had claimed his wife had been kidnapped and criticised authorities for not looking for her. Now it has been revealed Michaele, who starred in Real Housewives of DC is actually living with Journey rocker Neal Schon, the New York Post reports. 'Mrs. Salahi said she did not want Mr. Salahi to know where she was,' said police in Warren County, Virginia, in a statement. 'She seemed calm, was engaged in conversation and assured the deputy that she had left the...

    I drive trucks for a living. Big trucks. My routes often take me coast to coast. So I have a lot of time to listen to music on my truck stereo. Well after over 30 years of dismissing the rock band Journey as an insufferably lame musical group, I must say that all of a sudden, I am actually starting to like some of their songs. Where I used to have stations like "Outlaw Country" and "Willie's Place" as my Sirius radio presets, I now find that I have stations like "Classic Rewind" and "70s on 7" dialed in...

    It was the late afternoon of December 16, the year I was nineteen, and a junior at the University of Nebraska; the week of final examinations for the semester, and I had just one remaining, in Spanish, for 10:00 a.m. the following day. It was snowing greatly that day, in Lincoln, and in the rest of Nebraska, silver-dollar sized flakes drifting down, covering the ground to several inches, and causing the trees to sag from the weight. I had just gotten done eating supper with classmates, who were all agog and excited about going home for Christmas. I had my...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. lawmakers on Wednesday will open a debate that has stymied them for at least a decade: the future of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the giant housing finance agencies nearly felled by the credit crisis. Congress is facing the daunting task of remaking the companies after steep mortgage losses led the Treasury in September to seize control of the two financing agencies. The stakes are high, with President Barack Obama counting on the reach of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to carry out his plans to improve housing affordability for nine million Americans. Decisions made...

    In the wake of each election, we must always remember how proud History is of our endeavor. While most of History is littered with violent exchanges of power, the United States rather calmly transitions between one Presidency and the next. And so it will be again despite the loss of this election. We must also keep things in perspective. After all, when Washington, Jefferson, Hamilton and the rest fought to secure our freedom, there was no working democracy in the world. Prior to World War II, there were but six such outposts of Liberty and the majority of democracies in...

    Pigeon's epic journey back to her owner Last Updated: 2:42AM BST 19/06/2008 A racing pigeon has flown back to her original owner, 10 years after he gave the bird away. 'Boomerang' turned up at the home of pigeon-fancier Dino Rearden on Father's Day, a decade after he gave her to a friend. The 13-year-old pigeon had already made a name for herself in 1998, when she made a 1,200 mile trip from a pigeon breeder in Algericas, Spain, back to Mr Rearden's home in Skipton, North Yorks. The 76-year-old, who bred pigeons for the RAF during the Second World War,...

    Legendary rockers Journey have hired a Filipino fan to front the band after parting ways with Jeff Scott Soto earlier this year. The band discovered Arnel Pineda, from Quezon City in the Philippines via YouTube, when they saw footage of him singing Journey songs in his homeland with his band The Zoo. Original frontman Steve Perry was replaced in 1998 with Steve Augeri who was forced to leave the band due to health problems. But Pineda almost missed his dream job after initially assuming emails from guitarist Neal Schon were a hoax. “My friend Noel picked up the message on...
