Arnel, I have heard many singers live but you are the best. You are amazing. Don't walk out ever. It's your turn now. Let the next guy in years to come become the new Arnel and not Steve. I know he is great and the original, but you too truly are an original. X

Like what you said in the article,since Perry's voice is one of a kind; it takes and extra ordinary voice too! to give justice
to journey's music. Augeri,Soto they are all wonderful vocalist,
but to have such voice as Pineda, which is Eerely close to Perry, is something you don't just get in craigslist. So I don't care about skin color or his apperance, I care about his voice.. Rock on.

Another filipino had given an opportunity to prove that filipino's are so talented and blessed. We are proud to be "pinoy". Good luck and God Bless to you Arnel Pineda and to the band Journey.

I became an instant Journey fan right after the inclusion of Arnel as their new lead singer. Just bought Journey's Greatest Hits cd and dvd and 4 tickets to their March 8 concert in Vegas! I want to see and hear Journey live in action performing their classic songs with Pineda's surround sound vocals! So exciting!

In as much as it is hard to believe that an Asian lead singer is Journey's front man, Arnel Pineda will be an incredible asset to the band. Not only that they will revive the Journey's legacy in America but with a new blend they will be an instantenous hit in Asian countries. That may potentially make the band a bigger giant in popularity than ever before because they will be known worldwide.

They have not even scratched the surface of an incredible future. Good Luck, Arnel! More power to you!

What a talented and humble guy. Just remember Asia is home to half of the world population, so their "warm bodies" will be felt in all your concert tours. Your CDs will definitely sell....

i heard arnel sing he sounded too much like Steve Perry to be him. when Steve Augeri was the singer he too sounded too much like Steve Perry that's when the rumors started to fly he was lip singing and right away he left. when Steve Augeri sang the new songs he souded nothing like Perry he's the original he's the best you guys should stop imitating him and sound like you he's not dead yet . there's alot of Elvis singers but nobody his like him.there should be a law for that and Perry should sue your asses off.

FYI to all fans: Arnel recorded "the dirty dozen" Journey hits with the band before this South America trip plus several new tracks. I heard several cuts from an inside source and they will knock your socks off. As for when they will be released, I don't know. These cuts were recorded in Marin County in January in the days after Arnel met the band face to face for the first time. He was scared witless in the first few days but then started to gain confidence, my source said. At the end of that visit, Paul Liberatore called Arnel as he was leaving for the aiport. I believe Arnel has moved his girlfriend and their baby to Sonoma County somewhere so that it's easy to rehearse then they're not touring.

Arnel: You are so good as S.Perry. You deserve to be the new lead singer of Yourney (because of your talent and your hard effort )I am really very pleased to read about you are willing to leave your new position to Perry (if he is thinking to back To Journey). Good Man!! Be good to yourself!
