Biography

There are at least three artists with this name
1. A popular American rock band
2. A British psychedelic trance producer
3. An underground rapper

Journey is an American band formed in San Francisco, California in 1973. The band has gone through several phases since its inception by former members of Santana. The band’s greatest commercial success came in the late 19 through the early 19 with a series of power ballads and songs such as “Don’t Stop Believin’”, “Any Way You Want It”, “Faithfully”, “Open Arms”, “Separate Ways”, and “Wheel in the Sky”.

Journey has been eligible for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame since 2000, but Gregg Rolie is currently the only member of Journey who has been inducted — as a member of parent band Santana. In 2009, Steve Perry, the band’s best-known lead vocalist, will be eligible for induction as a solo artist.

Formation, 1973–1976

The original members of Journey came together in San Francisco in 1973 under the auspices of former Santana manager Herbie Herbert. Originally called the Golden Gate Rhythm Section and intended to serve as a backup group for established Bay Area artists, the band included recent Santana alumni Neal Schon on lead guitar and Gregg Rolie on keyboards and lead vocals. Drummer Prairie Prince of The Tubes, bassist Ross Valory and rhythm guitarist George Tickner, both of Frumious Bandersnatch, rounded out the group. The band quickly abandoned the original “backup group” concept and developed a distinctive style. After an unsuccessful radio contest to name the group, roadie John Villaneuva suggested the name “Journey.

    всегда не понимал, почему такое говно, как все исполнители такого жанра, как AOR действительно настолько популярны (в особенности среди пиндосов). То есть ярче примера для деградации классического рока, чем все эти отвратительно скучные Boston, Styx, Journey, Foreigner, Toto, REO Speedwagon и придумать нельзя

    Used to love Don't Stop Believing, now thanks to Glee and media I'm rather sick of it. I remember when it first came out in 1981. Sadly they have so many great songs and this one out shadows the rest.
