Herbie's pretty negative

Herbie seems to be taking a lion's share of the credit when it comes to Journey's success, but I don't recall him writing or performing any of the songs. I thought the interview was pretty negative, especially his belittlement of Jonathan Cain.

In fact, with so much pre-fabrication at work (from the album titles to the hand-picking of its members), Herbie plays into the hand of anyone who would argue that Journey are the paragons of "corporate rock".

I think Perry's attempt to wrest control away from Herbert is ironically manifested by the changing of "Freedom" to "Raised on Radio".
