Marco Announcement Imminent? Management Change?

Postby The_Noble_Cause » Thu Sep 09, 2021 4:09 am

Marco Mendoza has been touting an exciting big announcement coming very soon.
Most people are assuming he's going to be named as the official bassist.
If so, who finishes the album?

At the time of this post, Journey is also no longer listed on QPrime's website. So either they've been dropped by management or their press materials are being overhauled to include Marco.

Or, perhaps he's announcing that Journey has broken up and he is joining Styx as a third bassist.

Still no Journey listed on the Q Prime website. What the hell happened?

Perhaps Q signed on for a specific lineup and that lineup no longer exists so "Journey" broke the contract and Q let them go.
Perhaps Q failed to get the BMG deal and Neal fired them.
Perhaps Q was only hired to get them through the lawsuit and now they part ways.
Perhaps Q looked at the state of Journey, how their video was received, how they can't hold a lineup together, how Arnel is struggling at times with his vocals and decided it just isn't worth the effort.
Perhaps someone convinced Neal that "____________" is better than Q so Neal fired Q and hired new management.

Or, perhaps Q snapped his fingers and said, "Goodbye, Journey, I'm gonna miss you. You had such potential. But then again, all good things must come to an end."

All valid scenarios.

I very much like the exposure Journey has received this year and just assumed it was because of management.

Yeah, QPrime seemed to be kicking ass for Journey. What the fuck?

Andrew, any insight?

I thought the same thing. All the big exposure gigs felt like the beginning of something...

Nope. 4 days ago he said something to the effect of,

"While you are all waiting for my exciting news, here is something else I'm excited to share, my YouTube channel."

And the announcement is.......

He has a book coming out.

Ok. Cool.

Nothing Journey related - AT ALL.

Band's future still hangs in limbo.

Carry on.
