Current Journey Singer Says Perry “Can Take Over” For Him


Steve Perry’s recent performance with the Eels, his first public performance in almost two decades, has received a lot of attention from news outlets and fans alike, who would love to see the original voice of Journey reunite with his old band.  

Apparently, his replacement seems to be okay with a potential reunion.

Arnel Pineda, who joined Journey in 2007 after being discovered on YouTube, received the link to the Perry performance from a fan on Twitter, where he then responded, saying, “He should come back” and that he “missed that voice.”  Pineda would also go on to tweet in response that Perry “can take over too. its his righteous place anyway…wanna see them happy together.”

Even though rumors circulated earlier this year that Pineda wanted out of Journey (they were eventually denied), I have to admit that seeing Steve Perry front them again would be awesome!

What do you think?  Do you want to see Steve Perry back with Journey?
