Arnel Pineda of The Zoo, Journey’s New Vocalist!

More info for Arnel Pineda Here…

You know for us pinoys when you hear the band name “The Journey” you think of either “Steve Perry” or “Open Arms“, right? Right!

Well in case you don’t know (livin’ under the rock, have you?), Steve Perry left the band way back in 1996, Steve Augeri (Steve’s replacement?) left in ’06 and the latest so far, Jeff Scott Soto was let go this year.

So, here’s another pinoy record that will make all Filipinos proud! The newest lead vocalist of The Journey, as announced in their official website, is Arnel Pineda… True blue pinoy from Quezon City!

The story of Arnel Pineda being chosen to be The Journey’s vocalist very much reminded me of the 2001 Mark Wahlberg film, The Rockstar.

When it was time for JOURNEY to look for a new lead singer, the internet came to their rescue. The guiter player Neal Schon wanted someone new to the music business, so he turned to yuTube. After finding Arnel singing “Faithfully,” he knew he had found the perfect frontman.

    Arnel Pineda,,, u can sing u can replace instrument,, but u cannot replace a person behind the mic STEVE PERRY, a good boy and handsome,,,,,I think u need a speech lesson. We dont understand the words when u sing…..this is only advice,,,Journey needs STEVE PERRY……

  16. Vicky says:

    Steve Perry isn’t coming back. That’s basically it. Arnel Pineda did not replace Steve Perry, He replaced a Journey frontman who happens to be Steve Perry once. He has his own style and he is just sooooo damn good that he can bring life and soul to every music he sings to the point of of sounding like the original or even better. He does need to take speech lessons but that is a sign of coping up to a bigger and wider dimension of audience which he now caters to. If someone can’t understand his songs, then I wonder how the 15,000 people from Chile and many others from his performances had managed to sing and dance and groove with him while singing. God bless ARnel. You’re simply the man!

  17. Kim says:

    Arnel do not need speech lesson, he is fine. I am born in the U.S. with Filipino parents so I know first hand. Accent does not matter. English is spoken everywhere and there is no norm about accent. There is are so many ways you can speak English with accent. I also speak Tagalog with American accent and I think no one cares about it as long as I can express my thoughts. I also speak Hawaii Kine Pigeon English accent (wats up bradah, you oke, you like drink bea??), we also have Southern accent, Chinese accent, Any Asian countries accent, British accent, Geman accent and so on. Only the ignorant people will care about accent. What matter most is communication. Anyone who speaks English will sure understand Arnel no matter how he speak English, so stop it, unless you are a redneck or a racist SOB’s. .

    I’ve seen Journey’s concert recently on Arnel’s birthday, Sept. 5th here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Although he was still recovering from bronchitis that Journey decided to postpone the previous concert in New Hampshire, USA, Journey with Arnel rocked the sold out Molson Amphitheatre. People (at least 80% non-Filipinos) were dancing and singing during most of the concert and on our way home teen-agers (non-Filipinos) were belting out “Don’t Stop Believin'”.

  21. Lynne Kropf says:

    Arnel is awsome. He sings with his powerful soul. He is gold. I cant wait for more, more, more, Journey/Arnel music. Arnel is one of the core arteries to the heart of Journey. The band members each have a stong obvious God given talent and when combined….WOW!!!
