Many people will make the trip to the Illinois State Fair this Sunday to see Journey.

What do you know about the band?

  • They found the current lead singer, Arnel Pineda, after watching videos of him on YouTube. He sounded just like you know who.
  • There have been 17 different musicians in the band since 1973.
  • Did you know Randy Jackson was a member at one time?
  • Journey has released 21 albums.
  • The band's original name was "The Golden Gate Rhythm Section."
  • The name of "Journey" came up from the manager of the band, Herbie Herbert,and yes, that is his real name.

Journey will play at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield this Sunday. They have not released a new album of songs in a couple years, but they don't need to. Yes, it would be great to see Steve Perry up on stage singing,  but that's OK. You will still know all the words to all the songs, and it will be like when you saw them back in the day. Only the singer is different. But he sounds just like the other guy.
