The rock band Journey debuted their new lead singer Arnel Pineda at a concert in Chile two nights ago. How did the dude do in the “Can he sing like Steve Perry” sweepstakes? Judge for yourself (note: I found the volume level here a little low, let it play and adjust your own volume levels to taste):
My thoughts? Not bad at all. Although personally, I’m less interested in all the old songs than idea there might be some new ones. I know I’m in the minority there, especially because it’s Journey, a band people are content to hear the same dozen songs from over and over again. But you know, if you keep doing that, after a certain point you just become your own cover band, and Journey’s been at that certain point for the last decade. Time to move forward.
