Yeah, and I think this was the period where Randy Jackson (the judge from American Idol) played bass for them. I have a couple of Journey DVDs and he is on a couple of the live videos from this time period. He looks hilarious. My girlfriend and I watch that DVD quite frequently when guests come over.SDJ218 said:"Raised On Radio" made me absolutely cringe. During this period, they canned Ross Valory and Steve Smith, and whipped out the flourescent sports jackets and really bad perms.
I can understand why people may not like later Journey, especially the way that Steve Perry just kinda decided he was gonna take over the direction of the band, and basically up and fired some of the long-timers. But I truthfully like all Journey music.
Very strange that this song popped up, as I spent a good part of this past Saturday trying to learn, practice and record the solo for this song. I've got it down pretty good now, however your tone in this recording sounds very good compared to what I had going. I'd be very curious to hear you finish recording the end of this song. This is one of my favorite Journey songs and Neal Schon guitar solos. It is very simple but effective and emotionally powerful.
