YouTube Resurrected Journey?
Filipino Pineda got the job in 2007 after Schon saw YouTube videos of him performing the band's songs in the style of classic-era singer Steve Perry. And Rolie, who co-founded the band with Schon but left in 1980 just before Perry took them to new heights, says their latest move couldn't have worked out better. "I like Arnel – I met the guy and he's a great guy," He tells Artisan News. "They got the chance to change his life and his family's life. If you've been to the Philippines you'd know what I'm saying: it's amazingly poor.
"It's the smartest thing Neal ever did, finding him on YouTube and making a story out of it. I'm glad for him and I'm glad for the band – it's a whole resurgence for Journey." more on this story
