YouTube Resurrected Journey?

(Rock News Desk) Journey mainman Neal Schon made his smartest move ever when he hired fan Arnel Pineda to front the band, says former member Gregg Rolie.

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
