I treated myself to a new CD last payday.
Hubby and I have been Journey fans all of our married years (29 1/2 years!) I think we have just about every album they put out in the 80's and plenty of 45's. Oh dear I am showing our age. We've even started a new collection of Cd's. When I heard they had a new CD with a new lead singer who wasn't Steve Perry I was skeptical and so was hubby. I've been hearing their new single on the radio several times a day and I like their new song so much I bought the whole CD. It is a Walmart exclusive and cost around $13. It is worth every penny. You get 2 Cd's. A CD of new music with the new singer and a CD with the old music sung by the new singer. Also included is a DVD of their 2008 Las Vegas concert. I'm not skeptical anymore!! Here's a video of their new song.
Never Walk Away - Journey - Las Vegas
Who is the new singer?
His name is Arnel Pineda. He is 40 years old but doesn't look it. He's from the Philippines and has an interesting story. And he sounds a lot like Steve Perry. Enough on some of the old songs to make you think it's the old band.
I still like Steve Perry!
Here's a sample of the same song then and now. What do you think?
