Okay, both my husband and I are HUGE fans of Journey and Steve Perry. We are also both professional musicians so we know a great voice when we hear one. When we heard Journey had a new front man who was from the Philippines, we were anxious to hear him but never got the chance when they came to Hawai'i for a concert not long ago. So, needless to say, we really wanted to see this film.
Besides being very well produced and includes great clips of original members and the evolution of the band over the years, the film shows the incredible stress and insane schedules these guys maintain...the human side of being a rock star.
Arnell Pineda has a voice that, if you don't know any better, will make you think you're hearing Perry again. His range is incredible and his ability to maintain the high energy is amazing. At the same time he has his own vocal style and is humble. Outstanding movie, great concert clips!! This is musical history that both young and old will enjoy.

I went to the first showing of Dont stop Believin' here in Chicago today.
And.. yes.. I am a diehard Journey Fan, my first Journey Concert
was in 1997 and I took my 17 year old son with me to that one.
And.. yes.. Steve "the voice" Perry was one of the best voices ever..
One of the best.. after todays performance so is Arnel Pineda!
This man rocks as a performer and as a human being..
So talented and funny and smart..
Journey still remains in many of our hearts after all these years..
Loved seeing these guys rock, loved the old clips as well as
the new ones.
I was so impressed after seeing this film today.. I thought it
was done well and had so many great things about it.
And.. yes.. I thought no one could ever compare to Perry..
And.. I was right.. no comparison needed..
Arnel Pineda is his own man with his own phenominal voice..
I hope Journey keeps rocking for many years to come..and
I'll be right there rocking too..:)
