Wheel In The Sky will be back Mid-May with updates about Journey

I had just moved to a new school in a new city, Woodland Hills. This shy and socially awkward kid was walking home from school when this really cool long-haired kid on a bike rode over to me. I can't remember what happened next. I don't know if he came over to my house, or if I went to his or what. What did happen was a lifetime of friendship and memories.
He got me through Jr. High and High School which I couldn't do alone. I would have been swallowed up without him defending me and giving me credibility. He has always been there for me, always, every time, no matter what.
When everyone else was idolizing comic book characters and things, Scott was my hero. I wanted to be him. He had all the friends, all the girls, he had it all. I named him "Maguire" which was my superhero. He always landed on his feet no matter what. He was the luckiest coolest guy I knew. He outran the Police. He did 360's through red lights. Man, there was nobody cooler than Scott!
Scott is on the right with the big smile. This was taken around 1979.
I can't imagine what lies ahead without you Scott, You are truly missed. My heart is broken and I am once again lost.

Although Scott wasn't a Journey fan, his favorite Journey song was "Just The Same Way"

 "Just The Same Way"

Yesterday was a good day
It's after midnight
And I've got you on my mind
Come with me,  never go away
Everyday we will find,  yea

That's the same way you love me
That's the same way she loves you
Ooh,  just the same way you do
Just the same way you do
Just the same way you love me
Just the same way she loves

Take a chance now,  the timing's right
You bring to me the key to my life
Stay with me,  won't you stay the night
In the mornin' feelin' fine,  yea

That's the same way you love me
That's the same way she loves you
Ooh,  just the same way you do
Just the same way you do
Just the same way you love me
Just the same way she loves

Oh no,  you should be holdin' on to him girl
Oh yea,  just like,  just like you want to do
Oh no,  just love him,  squeeze him,  girl
Oh yea,  just love him,  squeeze him,  yea

That's the same way you love me
That's the same way she loves you
Ooh,  just the same way you do
Just the same way you do
Just the same way you love me
Just the same way she loves you
Ooh,  just the same way you do
Just the same way you do
That's the same way you love me
That's the same way she loves
