From 1973-1987, the musical group—Journey revamped their musical course and their crew extensively, while turning into a top traveling and recording troupe. The only consistent factor was guitar player—Neal Schon, a musical genius who served as a Santana member for about a year.
The original band, which was coined in a competition on KSAN-FM in San Francisco City, consisted of guitar players Schon and George Tickner, drummer Prairie Prince, and bass guitarist Ross Valory. Another old member of Santana—Gregg Rolie, who was a keyboard pro and musician also united after a short while.
The troupe released its first album—Journey in 1975, one of the three normal selling boogie-woogie collections dedicated dramatically to instrumental music.
By 1977, the troupe decided it required a powerful entertainer/front man and appointed Steve Perry. With fourth release, Infinity in 1978, the group gained immense popularity and traded about a million copies within 12 months.
Their 1979’s albums Evolution and Departure were equally successful. After releasing a live collection, Captured in year 1981, the band sent forth Escape which literally carved their path of success in music industry. It was with Escape that they racked up about three numbers in Top Ten hit singles, all songs spotlighting the velvety-smooth mood of Perry—“Who’s Crying Now”, “Open Arms”, and “Don’t Stop Believin”
Needless to say, the releases snatched some top several music charts and sold over a million copies. Also, the band saw great success with release of Frontiers in 1983 featuring the best-selling “Separate Ways”. Perry didn’t stop and made headway with a double-platinum solo collection—Street Talk in 1984.
When the ensemble combined to release a new collection, Valory Smith has already left the group, as a result, Raised on Radio was sung by Schon, Cain and Perry and one other new singer in 1986 after which the ensemble fell apart.
But, Perry didn’t lose hope when Schon and Cain left and came back to recording in year 1994 and soon launched For the Love of Strange Medicine. Albeit, it earned a gold standard it didn’t do well; commercially.
It was in the year 1996 when Perry once again united with Cain, Smith and Valory to release one of the top-selling albums Trial by Fire, which soon snatched a spot in the gold-selling Top 20 singles. The song was “When You Love a Woman”. Soon Perry and Smith walked out of the reunion after the tour, however Journey went operational.
Steve Augeri, a new front seat singer and an opening drummer Deen Castronovo shook hands and released “Remember Me” in Armageddon in 1998.
In 200, the band once again came to existence when it released its 11th collection and also headed for a country tour. Not only was the troupe honored with Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2005 but also plunged into its 30th anniversary tour with the launch of new collection—Generations.
The Live in Houston Tour in year 1981 & Escape Tour in 2006 were a huge success but shortly Augeri was replaced by Jeff Scott Soto who continued with band for a very short time period.
It was a time when a Filipino singer, Arnel Pineda joined the ensemble and debuted in 2008, the same year when Revelation was released.
Its single “After All These Years” soon became a rage amongst fans and in no time, the group released another work—Eclipse, a concept release.
