Hi Brad,

I do believe that Perry had as much to do with the songwriting in those albums as Cain did. And especially on the ROR album, it was mostly Perry. That album was very R&B-ish and that was Perry's specialty. Not to mention that Perry produced ROR

I do agree with you, however, that Journey cannot get success by writing rockers, at least in this day and age. Their success indeed will come from Cain's ballads

And as for godfathers of the power ballad, I think there are other bands we should consider as well...how about Survivor?

Cheers
Vince

Ah yes...But if you REALLY want to get technical...The bands greatest success was the ESCAPE, FRONTIERS, and ROR album...and that one constant was Johnathan Cain...I think he is given way too little credit for thier success...I didnt see open arms faithfully etc on the first few perry albums..With Cain probably writing most of the ballads...which is the ONLY thing they will get commercial success in this Girl/Boy band day of age....Forget rockers...These guys are not KNOWN for rockers nor never will...They are the godfathers of the power ballad...nobody has nor will do it better..They will carve a nice adult comtemperary ninche for themselves for however long they continue to do this....Same here..just my opinon...

Brad
