Journey was little influence at that time. It seems you might be grasping at straws here Koogles? The influences of these bands in the mid-70's were British Progressive bands.

The Rush, Kansas, Journey, Styx sound was heavily influenced by British and Euro prog (Rush have hailed Barclay James Harvest as a big influence. Odd isn't it?). Most of these bands toured with thier Euro counterparts and picked up much influence from them. The Midwest US in the mid 70's was a stronghold for Yes, ELP and Genesis (still is), and as a result a stronghold for Journey, Styx, Starcastle and the like...

The big guys in British Prog were setting the sound at the same time the British were starting to toss Prog away with the arrival of Punk.
