What with the new singer and new album coming, I figured we should have a Journey thread here. Hopefully there isn't already one hiding somewhere. Anyways, here's what happens to an ex-singer:
Former lead singer of JOURNEY, Steve Augeri, will serve as the celebrity judge in Brooklyn 1st Senior Idol Contest sponsored by AARP Chapter #5055, to be held on Saturday, April 12, 2008, at 8:00 p.m. at Xaverian High School located at 7100 Shore Road in Brooklyn. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

Brooklyn-State Senator Marty Golden (R-C, Brooklyn), the Chairman of the Senate Aging Committee, stated, "This very unique event will surely be a star studded and it is very exciting that a man who has made a mark in the music industry, will join us as we select Brooklyn's first "Senior Idol". Steve hails from Bensonhurst and attended Public School 48. It is most fitting that we have home grown talent, a man who has awed many on the stage throughout the country and the world, as part of this selection. I look forward to sharing the Judge's table with him, Councilman Gentile and Xaverian Music Director Joseph Loposky."

Steve Augeri was born in Brooklyn on January 30, 1959. Steve was the lead vocalist in TALL STORIES, who released a single self-titled album in 1991. He went on to sing with TYKETTO for their 1995 album, "Shine". Augeri retired from music in the mid-1990s after TALL STORIES ran out of momentum. He was working at a Gap store when JOURNEY guitarist Neal Schon came into contact with a demo tape of Augeri's. JOURNEY was, at the time, looking for new lead singer after the loss of Steve Perry who had left the band following their brief mid-1990s reunion due to touring conflicts and health issues.

I looked under Hard Rock. I wonder if it was in the general section. I don't know. I'm tired of looking for crap!

So... let me get this straight.

Neal Schon walks into the Gap and says, "I need the smallest pair of Levi's you've got... Wait! Hey you! Behind the counter... are you humming 'Stone In Love'? Want a job?"


:lol:

Anybody hear the newest singer yet? He's from the Phillipines. He's all over Youtube. My wife brought him to my attention. Should be interesting.

I have the bootleg CD of Arnel's first show with them in Chile. Amazing resemblance to Steve Perry.........even more so than Steve Augeri. :shock:

Unfortunately, he looks more like Cheech Marin, from what I've heard... which certainly won't help with Perry's female fans... :lol:
