6 Superbowl Halftime Ideas Better Than Madonna

"The more I typed out this idea, the more I loved it. Journey is perfect for the Super Bowl halftime show, and something tells me if Perry was still with them they’d have booked the gig by now.

Despite Pineda’s excellence as a Perry sub, Perry’s absence lessens the appeal, and thus restricts how many Scowling Eltons I can give this one. I’ll go begrudgingly with five. But if Perry ever agreed to reunite, bump this one all the way to #2."

Great article.

"And consider this: what if Steve Perry came back and sang with Arnel Pineda? It would be like Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck playing quarterback for the Colts. Sure, it could get awkward, but the pure spectacle of it would be awesome."

"Regardless, whoever is singing lead, Journey would be an awesome choice and far more appropriate for the stage and setting than Madonna."

^ Telling, isn't it? :lol:

More "Telling" isn't it?" :lol: May I repeat....

"if Perry was still with them they’d have booked the gig by now."

"Perry’s absence lessens the appeal"


We all would be gearing up to watch Journey on the big stage on Sunday instead of in the parking lot, as in 2009.

Yep, the sinking words. Too bad "whoever is singing lead" other than Perry (May I repeat) "lessens the appeal." Glee probably has a greater chance of getting the gig or maybe Adam Lambert could up the ante. He was awesome with Queen at MTVs.

"Too bad" that while it may "lessen the appeal", a Perryless Journey "would [still] be an awesome choice." And round and round we go. :lol:

Didn't watch Lambert&Queen, so I can't comment. I've never been a big fan of either.

I would have to say either the Tommy Dorsey Band or the Jack-The-Ripper band. Either way, both would have to engage in autotune due to their time away from the spotlight..

While Journey might be "an awesome choice," without Perry it won't happen. According to those behind the scenes, the band was supposed to perform during the seventh inning stretch at the World Series in San Francisco a few years back but "someone" nixed it. Any guesses who?

I think this links directly to the article. SP's picture was there leading to article, but guess it rotated away.

Too bad "whoever is singing lead" sounds so generic. Guess that's why Cain was worrying about Glee "taking" "DSB" as its own when nominated for the emmy. There is no "appeal" for tribute/cover bands.

You think "a Perryless Journey" "would be an awesome choice." By the way, who are you? "round and round...." :lol:

Lambert is Awesome! He figuratively holds the audience in the "palm of his hands."

Which is probably why Frontiers isn't being considered and Journey is.

Did I miss something? Remember, there is no "appeal" for Journey tribute/cover band.


"As proof, here is an excellent live version with Perry, then the new studio version with Pineda in case you’ve never heard how much he sounds like Perry."

Maybe that's why no "appeal" for he must come with a banana.

No, I think that parking lot tail gate show was the closest they've ever been.
I like to sit out on the front porch, where the birds can see me, eating a plate of scrambled eggs, just so they know what I'm capable of.

Yeah, the line where the article you cited says "Journey would be an awesome choice" for the Superbowl halftime show even without Perry. I'm honestly not sure if this is supposed to be part of the banter or what, but all I'll say is that clearly the author doesn't find a Perryless Journey some sort of tribute band and believes them to still be worthy of the honor of the Superbowl halftime show even without him.

So if there's a point to be made on your end, I return the question: What did I miss?

Put on your glasses..

"I'm honestly not sure if this is supposed to be part of the banter or what, but all I'll say is that clearly the author" does find a Perry sounding Journey to be the only reason to even mention the tribute/cover band. The author would have been more convincing of the tribute/cover band's "worth[iness]" if had spent less time throwing pointers as to how un"worthy" they would be w/o Perry:

"Perry come back and sang with him"
How long has new guy been with band?
"if Perry were with them they would have booked the gig by now"
"Perry's absence lessen the appeal"
"Pineda's excellence as a Perry sub" (submarine?)
Is he in his 5th or 6th year w/the band?
"excellent live version with Perry, then the new studio version with Pineda in case you’ve never heard how much he sounds like Perry."
"if Perry ever agrees to reunite bump to #2"

How long has it been since Perry sang live with the band 1991 (over 20 years)?

Tell the author that Perry is not coming back....

Gideon wrote:So if there's a point to be made on your end, I return the question: What did I miss?


See above, and "point to be made on your end" never gonna happen w/o Perry.

Gideon wrote:Remember there is no "appeal" for Journey tribute/cover band.


Gideon wrote:Which is probably why Frontiers isn't being considered and Journey is.


"Which is probably why' 'consider[ation]" ends for there is no "appeal" for the Journey tribute/cover band.

This has nothing to do with Frontiers or any of the sort, the article doesn't mention a tribute/cover band at all. At the end of the day, the article you cited to trump up Perry only points out that his presence is unnecessary. Maybe you should put on your glasses? :lol:

I have 20/20 vision like the author of the statement. You brought up "Frontiers," and if there is a bonafide "soundalike," as the author points out, then you have a tribute/cover band. "At the end of the day, the [author's] article cited trump[s] up Perry" [b/c it not] only points out that his presence is [necessary] in his eyes ("lessens appeal w/o) but also points out necessity if the band is to get the "gig."

Please review.....
"Perry come back and sang with him"
How long has new guy been with band?
"if Perry were with them they would have booked the gig by now"
"Perry's absence lessen the appeal"
"Pineda's excellence as a Perry sub" (submarine?)
Is he in his 5th or 6th year w/the band?
"excellent live version with Perry, then the new studio version with Pineda in case you’ve never heard how much he sounds like Perry."
"But if Perry ever agrees to reunite bump to #2" (Author's closing statement)

The author deals with reality, unlike some narrow-minded person,:lol: and places the status quo tribute/cover band at #5 "begrudgingly" when it is well within author's power to move the tribute/coverband w/o Perry to #2, but the author fails to do so b/c the author who deals with reality wants to see Perry with the band b/c w/o him it "lessens the appeal."

Now give me a call when the author decides to move the tribute/cover band from #5 to #2 w/o Steve Perry or when the author decides to post a video of the tribute/cover band singer singing with the band instead of Perry who's been gone from band for over 20 years or when the author stops talking about Perry, whom you say is "unnecessary" or better yet, when the tribute/cover band actually lands the "gig."

You're (willfully, I suspect) confusing what is satisfactory with what is preferable, but all I can do is refer you to the author's direct words.

Since SP brought in "bonafide soundalike" musicians during the FTLOSM tour to cover Journey songs, I guess that counts too. :lol:

Who cares what the author says ...Journey, as it stands,
will never be SB bound unless they are all on the winning
NFC team. Their chances ended w/SP, any sane person
knows that. But if, if, there were a teeny~tiny
fraction of a possibility (that's a snowballs chance in hell),
it ended w/the pre game debacle of two thousand
aaaand???___fill in the year, I haven't a clue!!


lol ...now I understand the Adele thread...haha!!

*edit* what I just said ...this new woman in the band
could change all of ^^^the public/media has some sort
of fascination w/her, which I know nothing about and
don't understand ...she could be their snowball/hell!! :shock:

this is such an irrelevant converstaion.

Steve Perry will never perform live again, with our without Journey.
Journey will never perform at the Super Bowl, with or without Perry.

The entire "Journey is now a cover band" is about ten years past its prime. Geez, get over it already.
