Temporary stand in for Augeri who has "chronic throat problems" - obvious choice really !

"Jeff Scott Soto to assume JOURNEY lead singer duties starting on July 7th in Bristow, VA due to Steve Augeri throat infection.

Due to a chronic throat infection, Journey's lead singer, Steve Augeri, has been forced to leave the band's current nationwide tour with Def Leppard. Jeff Scott Soto, who has previously performed with Journey guitarist Neal Schon, will assume the band's lead singer duties starting with the July 7th show in Bristow, VA. Steve Augeri's condition will be closely monitored by his physician to determine when he may be able to rejoin the tour."

I reckon Deen Castronovo should have taken over the singing duties.

I thought his voice struggled a couple of times in Edinburgh.  Who's Jeff Scott Soto?

So the allegation that the band is using tapes is all bollocks

Oor Wullie

Why didn't they phone Steve Perry?  ::)

Or they could easily have had Deen Castronovo take over full time singing duties as well as drums.

Perry's voice is apparently in even worse nick than Augeri's these days. I think JSS is a great choice, he's an excellent singer, although not really in a Perry vein, but he can probably put it on if he wants to approach the songs that way.

Will be nice to see him getting some wider recognition as he's a bit of an AOR underground type artist.

Was listening to Trail By Fire last night............absolute garbage.
Anger is a gift.

Trial By Fire I quite like.  Especially Can't Stop The Lion, which Schon really lets rip on.

Ooh - It's Just The Rain is quite good too.

Not a classic Journey album by any stretch, but it has its good points and is a good blend of different styles.

It is certainly better than the latest effort, Generations.
