Hi Nick

I haven't heard For a Lifetime, but I did hear Body Language and that was enough to put me to sleep completely...sorry, but that's how I feel about that! ha ha!

Although Cain did a lot of the songwriting for Journey, most people (fans) who bought the albums will remember Perry more often than they will Cain.

When people think of Journey, they think of Perry's amazing vocals, stage presence, and natural charisma, and not Cain's piano playing

The frontman, unfortunately (or maybe fortunately depending on if you are a singer or not), gets most of the credit and popularity, so it is safe to assume that at least in the eyes of the "average" fan, it was Perry they thought about when they thought of Journey

And let's not forget that Perry co-wrote many of Journey's hits...

I'm not counting out Cain because I think he's a great songwriter. All I'm saying is that Perry was probably the biggest reason for Journey's success whilst he was there....

I agree Cain gets little credit, has anyone heard one of his solo albums called "For A Lifetime"? It's all piano based and is very pleasing to listen to. Check out the instrumental verison of "Open Arms", this is one sexy album to play over a candle lit dinner with your wife/girlfriend!!
