JOURNEY "Revelation" Italian Press Release from Frontiers Records

On June 6th, 2005, Journey released their first album with brand new singer, Arnel Pineda.

Billed as Melodic Rock, Journey's "Revelation" hit the streets on June 6th, 2008. This featured a new lineup. Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, Ross Valory, Dean Castronovo, and introducing Arnel Pineda as the new Lead Singer for the band.

No more letting everyone have a chance at vocals, Arnel takes on all the vocals on the album. The album also includes eleven of Journey's top hits rerecorded with Arnel's voice. Had they left it alone there, it would have been fine. The only bad thing in a really excellent album package is that the instrumentations are different, they should have used the old version and replaced only Steve Perry's voice. The album also came with a DVD of Journey playing live in Santiago, Chile 2008.

This ad is from Italy and is two-sided. Both sides are shown below.

The Journey Force Newsletter part II from January 1990 is all about Bad English

The Journey Force newsletter Volume Three, Number Four, from January 1990, Part II


Neal Schon had always been playing guitar on the side, most notably with Jan Hammer and that sounded nothing like Journey, but now Neal and Jonathan start a new band while Steve Smith continued to make Jazz records. This new band was created out of members of Journey and Jonathan's old band, "The Baby's", called "Bad English"

By January 1990 the rumors of Journey breaking up were all over the place. There were signs everywhere that we all ignored to face. We were also led to believe that a center spread of a band that contained two major Journey members called "Bad English" was only a side project.

Bad English only released two albums in their three years of existence. They did have a few hits along the way. Their biggest hit is called , "When I See You Smile", and went to #1 on the U.S. charts. The song was written by Diane Warren.

Here is a complete list of the members of the band...

John Waite - lead vocals, rhythm guitar
Neal Schon - lead guitar, backing vocals
Jonathan Cain - keyboards, rhythm guitar, backing vocals
Ricky Phillips - bass, backing vocals
Deen Castronovo - drums, percussion, backing vocals
