Journey are rock that have been producing hits for a number of years, going on to become one of the most popular and successful rock bands o come out of America. Their songs are arena rock staples, and continue to feature on rock stations across the world.
Formed in San Francisco in 1973, Journey started life as two former members of Santana. Gregg Rolie and Neal Schon both originally featured alongside guitarist Carlos Santana, before they both left the band in 1972.
The two came together with remnants from another bad, Frumious Bandersnatch, with bassist Ross Valory and George Tickner. All the members were based in the Bay Area of San Francisco and brought together through Walter Herbet, who was a road manager for Santana. After numerous members coming and going, the band had their first performance as Journey at San Francisco’s Winterland.
Not long after the band were signed to Columbia and released their eponymous first record, which featured keyboardist Rolie doing most of the vocals. Upon the release of their next two records, the bands sales were quite poor, leading to some changes in personal and musical direction of the band.
Upon the request of their record company, Journey hired a lead vocalist in the shape of Robert Fleischman, who would share the vocal duties with Rolie. The band changed their sound to a more popular rock style that many bands were succeeding with at the time. It was a short term move as Fleischam left the band within a year.
Steve Perry would become the next singer, with his clean and appealing vocal range providing the perfect ingredient to complement the bands new pop sound. There next record proved they had found a winning formula, with 178s Infinity being their first to go platinum, selling over 3 million copies.
The band continued to be popular throughout the 80s, with 1980s ‘Any Way You Want It’ becoming a top hit, along with the album it featured on, Departure. Along with their previous album Evolution, Journey now had three consecutive platinum albums under their belts, and had established themselves as one of the most popular rock bands in the country.
Despite the success the bad lost yet another member, when keyboardist Rolie left due to tiring of the extensive touring the band were doing. 1981 saw the release of the best most successful album to date, Escape. The record spawned three top-ten hits for the band, "Who's Cryin' Now", "Don't Stop Believin'”, and "Open Arms".
More albums followed, and at their peak, the band had several more multiplatinum albums released throughout the decade, which would prove to be the bands most successful years.
Journey disbanded in 1989 to pursue other solo projects, before reuniting without Perry in 1993. After success as a solo artist, vocalist Perry returned in 1996, which saw a new album release Trial By Fire. Perry’s return would prove to be short lived, as he would soon depart again.
The band found a similar vocalist in Arnel Pineda, who shared a likeness with Perry, and had no trouble performing the bands back catalogue of hits. The released a new album with their new frontman in 2008, with Revelation going platinum like most of their previous work.
The bad continued to fill out stadiums and arenas like it was the 80s, with their pop infuse rock anthems providing many a great sing along for any fan that goes to see them.
