    I worked for B.G.P. through the Haight-Ashbury Free Medical Clinic throughout the 80's & 90's and have seen journey more times than I can remember, but one that stands out was an Oakland Coliseum D.O.G. #1 in '82 with Journey, Santana, Toto & The Tubes.
    I remember seeing this one from in front of the barrier on a hot day. Steve was drenched in sweat and I was washing the crowd down with water and climbing over masses of people to pull the fainted ones out so they wouldn't get crushed. And it was a concert of a lifetime; the best I've ever seen! It's hard to see how Steve himself could out-do that performance let alone Arnel.
    I haven't seen Arnel live yet but it's hard to see how he could ever surpass Steve in his prime. As a fan I think Arnel would agree. Having said that, Arnel is in his prime NOW and I don't think Steve could keep up with him on stage... and Steve has a 50 something voice now too. Sorry Steve we're all getting old(er).

    Pinedas job is to sing a little bit like Perry. Thats all. Perry is just great, he sings out of heart, with deep emotions and passion. He dont need to skream to express, like Pineda do. And when Perry skreams, my heart stops. I can not listen Pineda, i see every time Perry over him.

    Allow me to comment on things that are said with the two singers I have seen Journey three times in concert two with Arnel and one with Steve Augeri and I have to say regardless of you so called experts Steve Perry can not and will not be replaced by Arnel while he sings extraordinarily live lately he has come to be obnoxiously loud, and while I regret not seeing Steve Perry in concert with Journey it would have been awesome. I go to these concerts and I enjoy them, but leave a little disappointed because of that fact that Journey is not Journey without Steve Perry. They are just a band singing his songs!

    When Steve Perry left Journey, original drummer Steve Smith {with Journey since 1978; departed band after Perry's departure} said it best:

    "Journey without Steve Perry is like Jack without his box!"

    Steve Perry. Is the voice of Journey. People don't hear Journey and say omg its Arnel Pineda.

    Steve Perry is "the voice" of Journey. He wrote 99% of their songs lyrics and made them all famous. Arnel is very talented but not the golden voice. Arnel is singing all of Steve's lyrics..that doesn't make him great.

    It's strange how one can have so many favorite songs they can't seem to name them all, but when it comes to voices, of all the vocalist on the planet, my personal favorite is without a doubt, The voice of Steve Perry who just celebrated his 62nd Birthday on January 22nd. Happy Birthday Steve!

    Let's face it, without Steve Perry, there would be no Journey. His voice and rnage is what has made the band so popular. He bairly ever strains his voice hitting an amazingly high pitched note, whereas Arnel does. In fact, Arnel has pretty faulty pitch and no sence of rhythm (covered up nicely by guitar) throughout Revelations). I know, I have perfect pitch. Don't listen to these other people who say otherwise. Steve is at the top of they pyramid, and Arnel is down below the other Steve who sang in the middle.

    I heard Arnel sing and honestly I am happy for him. It is probably a dream come true for him. However, there is absolutely no one that can cut through to the core of my being like Steve Perry.

    Without a doubt and without hesitation...STEVE PERRY! He will always be better than any of the current or past cover band singers. Journey should be Gourney with a "G". "G" for generic cover band. He is "THE VOICE" and always will be. No one could fill his bath water let alone his shoes. Rock on Steve Perry! You have the voice of an angel. Amazing and effortless.

    Steve Perry projects emotion straight to the soul of the listener and does it with a very intense, yet graceful fashion. The most powerful form of magic I have been privileged to witness. Given the opportunity he could cause The Ice Princess to have a meltdown!

    Arnel can sing like various artists and has way better stage presence than SP. Perry just wimped out and got replaced by a better frontman. Next time Stevieboy won't think he's irreplaceable.

    I much as I like Steve Perry, Arnel Pineda is much better. Besides its been a while since we heard `The Voice' sing. To really compare them is to have a showdown between the two of them and they could out wail each other. Then and then can we tell who is better.

    Riley, Steve Perry is one of the most talented singer of all time. You ask Arnel Pineda and he would agree. We haven't heard the voice for more than a decade and we don't know how he sound like now. Until then, just keep an open mind that journey is still around with arnel pineda and moving foward.
