Ok fair enough, but listen to this, covering Perry songs with the right singer may be difficult to some and not so difficult to others. I know this AWESOME band from Finland who began as a Journey covers band, and they even blew people away at the Cannes film festival a couple of years ago and are currently recording their debut album for one of the labels, so bascially I really hope that Journey try something a little new as apposed to repeating history, if Schon can just improvise what he pays on his solo albums into the music of Journey then they will defintley have something to say, basically until I hear the new album, all Augeri is doing is singjng Perry songs - nothing wrong with that though, I just guess everyones excited on hearing the new material yeah?? It should be a big seller and I hope they do really well and come over to Europe and the UK to play, but there are other singers that would have worked just as well in Journey like Mitch Malloy, Hugo, Chalfant, Tim Lewis, would have made an ace job, but I guess Augeri has that bluesy range to his voice as well (see Tyketto's - Shine), thats suits earlier Journey material, so I do hope things work out, but my point is, is that it's not so hard for singers to sing like Perry, you should hear Timothy Lewis version of "Feeling That Way" on mp3.com, + Lewis has covered some Styx material, as well as orginal material, check out reviews and interviews @ Strutter http://www.angelfire.com/ma/strutteraor/Rock Report/Fireworks for proof of this guys awesome talent, in fact his voice is so powerful it's scary! Andrew you should review + interview Timothy Lewis.
Also didn't Geoff Tate(Queensryche) record several songs with Journey before Augeri joined? Now that would have really worked well!
Roll on September!!!!!!
cheers
