No doubt about it, Perry will forever be remembered as the "voice of Journey", as well he should. They enjoyed their greatest commercial success while he was fronting the band. Here's my big but, BUT, Jon Cain pushed this band into the stratosphere. Whaddya mean man? Well, Journey was a platinum-selling band BEFORE he was in the band. They were drawing huge crowds to their shows and selling a million albums. Then, one of the worst decisions ever (because i love Gregg) happened, Gregg Rolie retired. That led to the insertion of Jonathan into the Journey lineup and strangely enough, they went from selling a million albums to selling 8 million albums. Everything else about the band was the same, Perry,Schon, Valory, Smith, management, even the production team of Mike Stone/Kevin Elson remained. So, what was so different? Jon Cain was writing half of every song and influencing the other half. Perry himself commented in interviews that Jon "took him places I never knew I could go to as a songwriter". So, what's the REAL reason Jouney went from a nice million-selling band to internationally famous, record-breaking, chart topping, MULTI million selling behemoth? JONATHAN CAIN. 'Nuff Said.
