Can you imagine what the paycheck of being the singer in Journey would have meant to Augeri, who was working in a GAP store before he got the gig? If he was told do what we ask or you're fired, what choice did he have? None. You can't just go from earning Journey money to nothing without their being consequences for himself and his family, financially...it's not as easy as you make it sound.

Him being fired is not the issue. It's the fact that no one bothered to tell him and he found out second hand. Anyway you look at it, that's out of order...
