I have Jupiter's Darling, and I only like one song - The Oldest Story in the World. The rest just doesn't grab me like old Heart. I know people compare it to the old stuff, but I don't hear it. Is it the same lineup from the '70's?

I thought Jupiter's Darling was great. Ann and Nancy are the only 'original' members of heart. They are backed up by other musicians such as Gilby Clark (formerly of Guns and Roses). The music was a good return to 70's form while staying modern. I thought the drawback to JD was the length.

Was that the 1985 album, Dave? My first concert was Van Halen, Diver Down tour. Krokus opened.

Who else wants to share their first concert?

AC/DC... FLICK OF THE SWITCH TOUR here in San Antonio, TX. What a night! I even still remember some of the songs they played over the speakers BEFORE the darn concert itself! I believe the opening act was FASTWAY.

It's just that some people on the Journey boards are so desperate to justify and validate Steve Augeri that they seem compelled to try and diminish the real voice of Journey by whatever means they can contrive.

I personally prefer Steve's more mature voice. I think it's more soulful and resonant. In fact, I think ROR and TBF are Journey's best works. Street Talk and FTLOSM are also excellent. The vocal work on the earlier albums is extraordinary and I love hearing it, but it's not Steve's most impressive work, IMO.


Nobody here tries to justify Augeri by diminishing Perry. You are being disingenous. New Journey fans love Perry's work... who doesn't? I think just about everybody here would love to hear Perry back with Journey, but the man has stated he doesnt want to perform/rejoin them. He's out, and he's happy about it.

If Perry put out some new work, it would be great. I agree with you in probably a more soulful direction... some RnB material, and that would be great. He is still the voice, and with his years of experience at songwriting, producing, and singing... new Perry material would definitely be great.

No, I'm just being calling it like I see it. :) There are some fans of the current band who are also Perry fans, but there are also several who seem compelled to say the band is better off with Augeri because Perry can't sing in his old range anymore. That sounds to me like justifying Augeri by putting Steve down. The band doesn't perform those early songs now the way Steve used to do them because nobody can, so why is it such a big deal to some people that Steve couldn't sing them that way now? There's no way in which this band is "better" without Steve Perry.

Well, I would agree that Perry was the best singer to ever stand in front of an microphone. However, let's not cloud the accomplishments of Steve Augeri. He is a great and humble man, and I for one, am happy he has brought his voice and the loving music of Journey into my heart after a ten year hiatus. Here here to BOTH Steve's. Remember, unity rather than division.

OhSherrie, be safe today. :D :D :D :D

Don't let this scare you Deano, but this newpoohyou could bring back a lot of Perry people to post on a calm, cool and collected Journey board for as long as it lasts. Can you live with having a lot of women being nice to you?

Andrew should recruit you for the board. :wink:

hey all, let me explain what is REALLY hapening here...

I started off with 100% sarcassim, but throughout the ordeal, have found this to be a nice refreshing way to comingle. HOTS is not a b*tch, NIG is a mere mortal, and I am not satan.

This might just work.

Andrew? Your thoughts sir?

I can name several ways straight off the top of my head.

For starters, they actually tour and secondly, they release records more often than once in a decade.
