For all ya'll Journey fans out there, it's been a while since I've heard a news about this band and heard them sing their songs. I've heard that this band's staging a comeback, I'm not sure if it would be good or not for them, but atleast they'll get to sing those great songs that reminded us of our youth. But hey, I'm still young, okay?!Well I am just proud to announce that a filipino will front this band, his name's Arnel Pineda. A local filipino musician/song-writer, who's voice almost resembles that of Steve Perry from the original Journey and Jimi Jamison from the band Survivor.. For a sample of their recorded video, please do check this link. http://youtube.com/watch?v=HMW-CQ1brX0 Another pride for the Filipinos, hope he fulfills his JOURNEY!;)

All I wanted to add here was that I admire that you are proud of your country man and are willing to toot his horn. A lot of people do not have that generosity of spirit and I applaud you for yours my friend. Not that it surprises me about you...from what I have gathered from our chats...you are a great champion of others...and I like that about you! Wishing Arnel all the best in his new venture. Keep us posted! Raia

Thank you my friend, I'm taking some opportunity to also tell all my fellow Filipinos that we are also of world-class quality!;) Many of our Filipino fellowmen that gained fame came from different parts of the world, the thing here is Arnel was discovered via Youtube and wasn't that well-exposed nor even have a foreign blood just to prove his craft.. ;P

Yes, a little bit too late for his age but that perfectly fits the Journey's background!;)

I've seen this on TV and I should say that Filipino talent is really world-class! There are still a lot of undiscovered talents here and if only given the chance, we could still shine more in all parts of the globe. My wishes of goodluck to Arnel Pineda! =)

Actually, I've also seen this from an article that I was reading on newspaper. The fact is, I really love to share this long before he was featured on televisio. But the thing is, I seem to forget his name time and again!LoL Now I'm glad that I've come to listen to one of his songs again, which prompted me to search for his name and share it here on mylot!;)
