JOURNEY: Don’t Start Believin’
First there was a rumor this week that Steve Perry was negotiating to rejoin Journey. Not true. Now there’s a rumor that Perry sound-alike Arnel Pineda is looking to leave the band. Also not true.
Arnel says, “I am as happy to be in Journey today as I was when I first joined the group. Next to my family in Manila, Journey is my family. When I’m not working, I spend time at home with my wife and kids, and my Foundation. Now, I am busy preparing for our tour with the Steve Miller Band and Tower of Power [this summer]. I wish whoever is making up these lies would put their time to good use and stop spreading these false stories.”
Pineda joined Journey in 2007 after guitarist Neal Schon saw videos of him performing on YouTube.
