I know this will come as news to all of you, but stop the presses, some months ago Jeff Scott Soto quit as the lead singer for Journey. I know, I know! I was surprised that there was still a Journey too!

So Neil Schon and the band went looking for a lead singer. and looking. and looking. and failing. Until they found a clip of Arnel Pineda singing in a very bad bar band in the Philippines: (warning, link contains "Faithfully" and chatty stage banter to a crowd of literally dozens) Check out the related videos for Arnel to see him belting out classic rockers by a dozen other bands. Within the acceptable idioms of the genre, the dude can seriously sing.

Journey is working on a new album (really?) in preparation for their next world tour (really?!), so...they hired him. From the lobby of the Quezon City Hyatt to a 50,000 seat ampitheater near you, all through the magic of teh intarweb.

That rocks! \m/
