Herbie Herbert - One Man's Journey - An Interview from 2008

Here's another excellent interview with Walter J. (Herbie) Herbert, Journey's manager from 1973-1993.

Herbie Herbert is one of the music industries most colorful characters. For a period of time he was the #1 manager in the business, taking Journey – a band he put together with Neal Schon – to become a multi-Platinum selling stadium act.

In addition to his work with Journey, Herbert brought Swedish rock groups Roxette and Europe to the United States in the mid to late-1980s. He managed Mr. Big and R&B artist Tara Kemp and rock band Signal. 

In the late 1990s, Herbert moved from backstage into the spotlight, recording three albums as Sy Klopps and touring the San Francisco Bay Area with the Sy Klopps Band, which has included current and former Journey band members Neal Schon, Gregg Rolie, Prairie Prince, and Ross Valory.
