Journey

Something sparked when Steve Perry entered the Journey lineup in 1978, when the group began reeling off a stunning seven consecutive multi-platinum projects through 1987. The group was an unstoppable arena-ballad juggernaut, notching 18 Top 40 singles, six of which shot into the Top 10 — all in a fruitful period that ended with Perry’s exit in 1998. Even though most of the attention falls on the Perry years, Journey released a trio of muscular, blues-rock jam records before his arrival, very much in the style of the Santana band that had been home to both original singer Gregg Rolie and stalwart guitarist Neal Schon. After Perry’s exit, singer Arnel Pineda took over, and 2008’s ‘Revelation’ and 2011’s ‘Eclipse’ went Top 15, as Schon, keyboardist Jonathan Cain, bassist Ross Valory (who has been on every Journey album, except for 1986’s ‘Raised on Radio’) and drummer Deen Castronovo continued into a new century.
