  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_4dqn4rox"]] Journey fans can relax, keyboardist Jonathan Cain insists the band isn't calling it quits over their White House visit without founding member Neal Schon -- although Neal doesn't seem nearly as sure.

Everyone attended but drummer Steve Smith and Neal, who thinks the band shouldn't be exploited by anyone especially for politics or religion.

Steve Perry Reunites with Journey at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony — But Does Not Perform

Journey fans have stopped believing in a reunion performance.

The American rock band was joined by former lead singer Steve Perry at Friday evening’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Perry, 68, was there with former bandmates Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, Steve Smith and Ross Valory, along with current lead singer Arnel Pineda, who was not included in the band’s honor.

Train’s Pat Monahan inducted them with kind words. “Tonight I’m here to live out a life-long dream, to induct the heart of San Francisco music into the rock hall,

Steve Perry Will Not Perform with Journey at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony: Rep

This article originally appeared on EW.com.

Since Journey was announced as one of the 2017 inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, rumors have swirled about whether vocalist Steve Perry ― who last performed with the band in 1991 ― would sing with the group at the induction ceremony.

Now, hours before the event takes place at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, those rumors have gained new steam. A TMZ report Friday afternoon claimed Perry “will sing with the band at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony.”

But a rep for the band has countered those claims, telling EW, “We

The Essential Heart: Ranking Their Top 20 Songs

Ann Wilson is one of the greatest vocalists (male or female) in the history of rock music, and she and sister Nancy tore down barriers and shattered expectations with their group Heart.

Since their 1976 debut Dreamboat Annie and it’s classic Top Ten single “Magic Man,” they defied the rules about women in rock, and became an inspiration for a generation of female musicians.

Today is Ann’s 64th birthday, so let’s pay tribute by counting down Heart’s 20 greatest songs (including a couple of Ann’s solo releases).

Note – Compiling this list, I was shocked by how few songs from Heart’s “Bustier Era” (1985 – 1990) I decided to include. There are only three (and only one in the Top Ten). And their first #1 song “These Dreams?” It didn’t even come close.

20. City’S Burning

Year: 1982

Album: Private Audition

Chart Peak: N/A

The early 80′s were rough for the group,

'Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey': Rock 'n' roll fairy tale coming to PBS

The story of Arnel Pineda's rise from nightclub singer in the Philippines to the frontman of Journey is fairly well-known -- he's been with the band, after all, for about five years now.

But it's a really good story, which is why PBS' "Independent Lens" series has picked up a documentary about Pineda's Journey experience. "Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey" played at several film festivals last year and is set to make its TV debut Sept. 30 (check your local PBS listings).

At the TCA summer press tour Tuesday (Aug. 6), Pineda and Journey's Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain and Ross Valory recounted how Schon found Pineda by searching YouTube, apprehensions the band had about hiring Pineda and some less-than-welcoming fan responses.

Cain recalls a tour date in one city -- he doesn't say which one -- where "people sat with their arms folded" for about the first half-hour of the show

Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey Movie Review

Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey Movie Review
Title: Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey Director: Ramona Diaz The title of “Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey” is somewhat misleading. An indulgently apportioned look at the classic rock band Journey and their recent reinvention with Arnel Pineda, a Filipino lead singer found through YouTube, director Ramona Diaz’s film takes what could and by all rights should be a fun, engaging fairytale story and stretches it out to near interminable lengths. Two parts shambling tour document and self-congratulatory biography for every one part cross-cultural coming-of-age story, the sporadically lively “Don’t Stop Believin’” is all mic-ed up, but also all mixed up. When rhythm guitarist Neal Schon pitches Ross Vallory, Jonathan Cain and Deen Castronovo, his fellow original members [ Read More ]

The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80's!

Back at the beginning of July in the daily Briefs, I started the Official snicks Top 100 Lost Hits of The 80's, spotlighting the 100 greatest minor hits of that decade. The songs you don't hear on any 80's nostalgia show. Songs that missed the top ten, or top twenty ... or top forty, and over the last five months I hope some of these forgotten gems may have rung a long dormant bell, or for younger readers, provided a pop music history lesson.

Here is the complete list, including my favorite lost song of the decade. Thank you for taking this 80's road trip with me ... but it's not over yet! I'll be featuring a new Lost Hit once a week in the Wednesday Briefs, so the history lesson will continue!

Neal Schon & Michaele Salahi Talk Romance; Tareq Salahi Addresses Accusations
Neal Schon tells Access Hollywood that Journey's new song "Resonate," a video for which features loved-up glimpses of the guitarist and his girlfriend, Michaele Salahi, is in the vein of the 1980s megahit "Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)."

"Jonathan Cain wrote the lyrics to this song and most of the music and I just kind of finished it out after he brought it to the studio," Neal said of his bandmate, who plays keyboards and guitar for the ensemble. "When we were doing our last record... I said to Jonathan, 'Don't you have another 'Separate Ways'?

"'Resonate' is a ...

The Sopranos begets the cult of Don't Stop Believin'

10 June 2007: Number 49 in our series of the 50 key events in the history of rock music

The phrase "don't stop believin'" was a gift from Jonathan Cain's father. He'd end every phone call to his son, a struggling musician in Los Angeles, with the words: "Don't stop believing or you're done, dude." When Cain joined Journey in 1980 he had worked the phrase into a chorus, which his new bandmates developed into a song. Don't Stop Believin' was a huge Us hit in 1981, but 26 years later it began an unlikely voyage to ubiquity when it featured in the final scene of the Sopranos and was introduced to a new generation. It was performed in an early episode of Glee, and from there it became unstoppable. It uses the same chord structure as Take On Me, Under the Bridge, You're Beautiful and Let It Be, but its strength lies in its

"Circo," Reviewed

  • IFC
Circus life

Under the big top world

We all need the clowns to make us smile

Through space and time

Always another show

Wondering where I am

Lost without you -- "Faithfully," by Journey

Those Jonathan Cain lyrics kept flashing through my mind while I watched "Circo," a melancholic documentary about the slow dissolution of a Mexican circus family. To the folks in the stands, the circus is excitement and thrills. To the men, women, and children who run that circus it's a job, and not an especially glamorous one, either. Like Steve Perry sang, there's always another show, and that grind takes its toll.

The family grinding away is the Ponces who have operated the Circo Mexico for decades. Three generations of Ponces work the circus; patriarch Don Gilberto inherited the life from his own father and his three siblings each have their own traveling circuses as well. Though Gilberto runs the business,

Inside the Hot Business of 'Glee'

The note was practically a high "A-sharp"; the cacophony of voices blended perfectly to form an instantly recognizable tone, striking the right balance of volume and shrill while conveying contagious enthusiasm. There were big smiles, hearty applause and a collective pat on the back. Only this chorus wasn't singing on the set of "Glee"; it was 16 cheering department heads seated around a conference table at the Los Angeles offices of 20th Century Fox Television, the studio that produces the hit Fox show. Piped in via video: another eight team members from Columbia Records in New York.Welcome to the "Gleekly meeting," a pep rally during which the many tentacles that tend to the nearly half-billion-dollar brand convene to discuss the latest strategies for what has become the network's No. 2 priority. Averaging 14 million viewers this season, "Glee" still trails "American Idol" by a good 10 million, but it's inching closer to the juggernaut with each passing day.

Don't Stop Believin': the power ballad that refused to die

From Glee to The X Factor, Journey's Don't Stop Believin' became inescapable in 2010. Dorian Lynskey on the 30-year-old track that slowly burned its way into our consciousness

"Just a small town girl …"

When was the last time you heard Don't Stop Believin'? Was it on the radio or in the pub? At a festival or a wedding? Was it sung by Journey themselves, the cast of Glee, a fan on YouTube, a choir of schoolchildren or a drunk friend on a karaoke machine? Boxfresh pop songs such as Tinie Tempah's Pass Out might have a decent claim on being the sound of Britain in 2010 but nothing has wriggled its way into every corner of the culture quite like a slow-burning power ballad that's about to celebrate its 30th birthday.

Hands On: Rock Band 3

The preview stopped, the curtains rolled up: 7 Harmonix band members stood on the stage. The bassist, the guitarist, the drummer, the keyboardist, and 3 singers. All at once, the lights started an offensive against epilepsy and Whitesnake filled the air. And it was good. The game itself – Rock Band 3 – was more than just good.

As I learned today at E3 today, the Rock Band Pro Guitar is legit. A brave Harmonix guitarist showed us his ample skill at Pro Mode Expert, and it was literally the hardest looking thing I’ve seen in my life (getting all the strings correctly and getting as close as you can to actually playing). However, this wasn’t enough: Harmonix wanted to prove that the guitar was really teaching you what to do. And so, he unplugged his guitar and put it into an amp instead. Restarting the song, he played the exact same chords

Inside Directors Leave the Gore for Some 'Snow'?

Bad English? That's Ok! We received an e-mail from a French movie website Filmsactu.com who talked to Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury about them leaving the Hellraiser project over at Dimension Films, which we reported last week. The site tells us in broken English, "We asked them, and they answered us that the production didnt respect the deal, while changing their first script. They also talked a little bit about their next project. It's called Neiges (Snow), produced by Thomas Langman (Asterix 3 Director) and would be some kind of fantastic movie rated 12 in France (Inside was Rated 16)." Watch for new updates as they come in.
