Maybe they're waiting to see how his voice is doing. I think it would be interesting to have Pineda sing a song and then Perry come out and sing the same song.

Yeah, I know...won't happen. But would be a hoot

Damn. But then again, the last time I saw a video of a Perry performance...

What about Rollie?

As with every human being. Age becomes a factor. But this is Perry from 3 years ago performing Journey with The Eels, his only public performance in the last 20 years. His voice isn't the same, but he can still sing. I'd still pay to see him perform with Journey or even solo.

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

Kinda reminds me when I saw Van Halen a couple of years ago. David Lee Roth singing in a lower registered, going in and out of key here and there, getting audience to sing along at times, etc.

It's age. It happens. I would rather seem Perry with Journey live than see a young sound alike with perfect pitch. You want the original group (especially lead singer) or a cover band with a few of the originals? I prefer the originals, warts and all.

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

Don't get me wrong, I prefer the originals as well. I enjoy the newer Journey albums with the other singers, but I've never bothered to see them live since Perry left (and for many years without Smith as well). I was just commenting on how much he has lost given the videos I have seen. Unlike somebody like Roth, Perry was an amazing singer IMO, so to me it's a much bigger loss.

No way Perry doesn't sing. I think they are just keeping it mum for fans. Guess we'll know in a few hours.

Not exactly his only time in the public... this is 2005 in front of a couple million people (and more on tv)

He starts singing at 0:50

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

He didnt even show up backstage for interviews. Still bitter drama with the band?

But there were people sure he would sing with them! I was thinking no way all along. Even if he still had the same voice, it would be like Dennis getting back with Styx.

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

I just dont understand it. After all these years, all the hype, and we get a little speech and he bails.
I'd sure like to know why but I'll leave that to TMZ to figure out

Anyone know when HBO will air this thing? I always enjoy watching it. I'm guessing late April or early May.

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

Anyone watch? Watched some YouTube videos. Saw a photo of Perry and Arnel meeting for the first time. Perry gave him a shout out during his acceptance speech was nice since he wasn't allowed to be with the group except during the performance.

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

I watched on HBO the other day. Nice to see Perry and word is, from Neil anyway, that Perry was too emotional to get on stage and perform. I call bullshit because bands rehearse this shit. He was never going to sing.

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

I'm watching this now and saw the Journey part. BTW who is Arnel that was mentioned a couple posts up, is he the singer?

This guy that Journey has singing is bad. No Charisma, no personality. Just dull.

Also does anyone actually give any weight to who is in this sham of a Hall of fame?


So was Dave a little toasted

Yes, the new singer. He is definitely not known for being a great front man during live shows. He's basically just a tribute band guy that sounds a lot like a young Steve Perry.

For me the biggest shock (knew there was no way Perry was going to perform with them) was just how good Rollie looked. His recent stint back with Santana was great as well.

HUH?! Have you seen any live shows? He's just as good a front man as any other guy putting on a show
I think he's a good singer and sounds good on original material they've done.

Re: 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees

I saw the new guy perform with Journey years ago. Fantastic singer but not much of a crowd-engager. In fact, not anything like one. Kind of a weak frontman, but I assume he's gotten better at it and more comfortable with crowds over the years.

Yes, and I came away with a totally different take. Especially compared to how great Steve Perry was back in their prime.

I think he's a good singer and sounds good on original material they've done.
I'm not knocking his singing ability in any way. In fact, I've bought each new studio album with him as the singer because I do like him as in general.

I guess "new" as being the newest but he's been with the band for 10 years.
