I thought they went their separate ways already?

So in my calculus class last year in math, there were these two Chinese twins. Ving, and Ling. Ving was always super cool with me. In exchange for answers (he was super smart) I would hang out with him and be his friend and stuff. After I cheated off of him and studied with him though, I did get to be his friend and we got very close. His sister, Ling, was always uptight about school and she made sure to study, she got stressed about a B, etc. One day I was hanging out with Ving, and we started talking about names. He went off on this huge rant about how he hated his, and how he wanted to change it to something more Asian-American, like Lee. I told him that the Courthouse downtown had a form that you could fill to legally change it. He told me:

"I always give you answers. If you could just drive me down to the courthouse this one time, I will never forget you. I just hate this god-forsaken Chinese name and I want to get rid of it forever." He seemed pretty adamant about it, so I decided the best decision would be to take him. We walked out to my car, and right as I put the keys in the ignition Ling came running and tapped on the car door like a madman. I rolled it down and she started freaking out about how Ving's name had been passed down through generations and generations, but Ving didn't care. He just wanted to go down to the Courthouse and get it over with. Ling figured that coming with would be the best idea, so if anything else came up that she would be needed for, she would be there for Ving. Honestly, I felt stuck in the middle of a family feud, so I just took her along.

When we got to the Courthouse, Ving confidently walked up to the front desk and asked the receptionist if he could change his name. She gave him a little packet of paper and told him to sit down. Ling and I waited patiently while Ving filled out his info. I was watching him fill it out and I noticed he really did want to change his name to Lee. Before he finished, though, he started tearing up. He told me he couldn't change his name. He asked the lady at the front that he couldn't do it, and she told him he would need twenty dollars to cancel the request. Ling was so relieved and happy that he changed his mind, she dug through her purse, found the money, and started to hand it to the receptionist.

It was at this moment that the most stereotypical Asian man burst through the doors. He was wearing a Hawaiian shirt, a visor, American flag shorts, flip flops, everything. This little guy was decked out.

When Ving and his old man saw each other, they both started bawling, and embraced each other. Out of his tears, Ving said,

"Dad, I love my name. I want to be Ving forever, and I'm going to name my kids Ving, and they're going to name their kids Ving, and-"

And the old man said "Dont, stop. Be Lee, Ving! Hold onto that fee, Ling."

Consider that Journey's Greatest Hits CD only needs two more weeks at on the Billboard Top 200 to pass Metallica for the #2 spot for most time on the chart. (No one is ever going to pass Pick Floyd).

This would be a disappointing disaster of epic proportions. As much as I detest that little Filippino ooompah-looompah (who sings phonetically, btw), at least the band can play the songs in their original keys and he hits all the notes as they were written/originally sung.

Perry does not (much like Halford, Nicks, Plant, Johnson, Elliot, Daltrey, Stanley, et al) have that magic voice anymore. The band would have to play at least 2 steps lower just to accomodate the diminished ability of this once amazing singer.

No thanks.

Did you just say Paul Stanley had a magic voice? I was only a KISS fan for a couple of years (I was like 14-15) but even then, other then a couple tunes I always preferred the Simmons tunes. Stanelys voice makes me cringe. I realize music is subjective, but I just never heard Stanly in the company of peers you mentioned as a stand out vocalist. Hell, I liked Criss' voice better.

Ummm...that Oopah Loompah has incredible vocal chops, takes his job very seriously and is a fan of Journey first and foremost. Oh, and I love Perry's voice, but the guy had absolutely zero stage presence...Arnel hits all the notes, interacts with the audience and jumps around the stage like Sammy Hagar circa 1987. Give the Oopah some credit.

I saw them with that early 4-piece line-up and it was an entirely different animal: Rolie, Schon, Aynsley Dunbar and Ross Valory. I would take Gregg Rolie's voice over the shrill mewlings of Perry any day, thank you very much. And he was more than a little decent with a Hammond B3 too.

Isn't there a Santana reunion in the pipeline? That sounds a lot more interesting.

Probably has to do more with Perry sitting in with the Eels on a few shows to sing Journey songs. I believe the current singer has stated he'd step down if Perry ever wanted the job back.

Yeah I'm not getting the hate for Ariel Pineda. He seems like a pretty cool guy, and he brings energy to the band. Face it, bands like this are cover bands anyway. Neil Schon is a pretty much an asshole by most accounts; he would not hesitate to throw Pineda to the curb for the paycheck that a Steve Perry reunion would bring.

Watching "Every-man's Journey" I got the impression that most Pineda detractors simply don't like him because he's brown and Asian.

By most accounts, Arnel Pineda's voice is declining as well. Years of hitting those high notes are now taking a toll, and he's becoming inconsistent show-to-show.

Not surprised. He's not a spring chicken, really. I'm sure he's earned enough to live comfortably in the Philippines for the rest of his life, as long as he doesn't hit the sauce or horse too hard.

THIS! how many members of journey are founding members? how many members were in the band when they had steve perry? how many members were there with the original singer? how many were in the santana band? how many people know journey's original singer wasn't steve perry, or that they started as santana's band?

i care nothing about seeing journey unless i win tix. sure, i'm betting they do a good show, but i'm not paying money to see them, the who (one of my all-time favorites, but no ox, no keith, and a raspy daltry), g'n'r (if i pay money to hear "paradise city" or something like that, it'll be slash w/ myles and his band, not axl hired hands), smashing pumpkins (ok, i've seen the new sp on guitar center sessions...pretty good actually...i MIGHT pay to see them), and other bands that are keeping on keeping on for whatever reason without the majority of their original, or at least popular, line-up

DrBenway: happydude45: I'd rather see Greg Rolie back with Journey than Steve Perry

I saw them with that early 4-piece line-up and it was an entirely different animal: Rolie, Schon, Aynsley Dunbar and Ross Valory. I would take Gregg Rolie's voice over the shrill mewlings of Perry any day, thank you very much. And he was more than a little decent with a Hammond B3 too.

Isn't there a Santana reunion in the pipeline? That sounds a lot more interesting.


Santana is boring as hell live. Granted, I never saw him until 78 or 79 maybe, but the three or four times I've seen them since were completely unmemorable.

mjones73: the current singer has stated he'd step down if Perry ever wanted the job back.


Yes. Yes he would.

JacFlash: /he also speaks English better than most of us farkers.


Yeah, he just doesn't understand what he's saying.


/dude's a great singer tho. You can tell it's him because he enunciates each word perfectly. It's always "having" not "havin'"

so the website that calls out pretty much every comedian for stealing jokes is mad that I might have done the same?   I simply asked if he wrote it, if he didn't why not lead with "I found this online and thought it was funny"

elchip: So in my calculus class last year in math, there were these two Chinese twins. Ving, and Ling. Ving was always super cool with me. In exchange for answers (he was super smart) I would hang out with him and be his friend and stuff. After I cheated off of him and studied with him though, I did get to be his friend and we got very close. His sister, Ling, was always uptight about school and she made sure to study, she got stressed about a B, etc. One day I was hanging out with Ving, and we started talking about names. He went off on this huge rant about how he hated his, and how he wanted to change it to something more Asian-American, like Lee. I told him that the Courthouse downtown had a form that you could fill to legally change it. He told me:

"I always give you answers. If you could just drive me down to the courthouse this one time, I will never forget you. I just hate this god-forsaken Chinese name and I want to get rid of it forever." He seemed pretty adamant about it, so I decided the best decision would be to take him. We walked out to my car, and right as I put the keys in the ignition Ling came running and tapped on the car door like a madman. I rolled it down and she started freaking out about how Ving's name had been passed down through generations and generations, but Ving didn't care. He just wanted to go down to the Courthouse and get it over with. Ling figured that coming with would be the best idea, so if anything else came up that she would be needed for, she would be there for Ving. Honestly, I felt stuck in the middle of a family feud, so I just took her along.

When we got to the Courthouse, Ving confidently walked up to the front desk and asked the receptionist if he could change his name. She gave him a little packet of paper and told him to sit down. Ling and I waited patiently while Ving filled out his info. I was watching him fill it out and I noticed he really did want to change his name to Lee. Before he finished, though, he started teari ...


total awesomeness, right here.

Well, all I'm saying is a reunion of him with Schon, Gregg Rolie, Michael Shrieve, and a percussion section would still beat the hell out of any reconstitution of Journey, with or without Steve Perry.
