Pinoy joins iconic rock group Journey as lead singer (wow!!)
Hello there...couldn't believe this at first but a visit to Jolly Bee yesterday (after Bong and I did a quick flat ride with chicharon deliveries:-) I stumbled on a Filipino news article that one of my favorite (all-time) bands Journey picked Arnel Pineda (from the Philippines) as their new lead vocalist. Apparently, Neal Schon founder of Journey spotted video clips of Arnel and his group (Zoo) while surfing the ever self-showcasing website youtube...here's some links including two of my favorite songs, "Open Arms", "Faithfully". p.s. some of the video is grainy but the sound production is good, album with pineda i heard is coming up mid-year..
"Faithfully" rendition by Arnel & his band
