Have you ever seen the Journey documentary Frontiers and Beyond? It's amazing! The YouTube gods have blessed us, Glam fans... for the entire documentary is online now. Watch in all its glory. Runtime is about an hour and forty minutes.

Journey is a glam band???

bkallday: I thought the same thing, but I was able to watch half of this documentary this morning and it rocks. I'll check out more this week. you gotta check it out, too. but, not only did I first think, "Journey is a glam band???", I couldn't get the story out of my mind that during Van Halen's, "Hide Your Sheep" tour of South America in 1982 in order to promote Diver Down, David Lee Roth posted a sign at every concert, "No [animal abusers] or Journey fans."

Anyway, check out the documentary. Also, I remember having a debate with a former college roommate about "corporate rock" bands and we agreed on almost every one. I said I was on the fence about one band (that he insisted was corporate rock). that band is Journey.

and just to give a gentle jab: is anyone appreciative that allyson used the adverb "amazing" instead of "awesome"? I know I am.

Let's not forget, this is one of THE cheesiest bands ever, residing at the top of AOR Mountain.

At least one of their songs has been salvaged, corrected and fully Metalized, revealing just how worthy their music could actually be:

Jeez... Rushing the beat a bit there? Journey doesn't own a metronome? Cocaine's a hell of a drug, isn't it, Mr. Jonathan
Caine?

For what I know about the douchebaggery of Neil Schon, and the way he's screwed over Steve Perry, Steve Augeri, Jeff Scott Soto, Aynsley Dunbar, & even his current soon to be ex-wife, this guy will never get a single penny out of me.

Rock Sugar is really great. I saw Don't Stop the Sandman 3 years ago when it first surfaced and loved it. Although the original version is a classic, I prefer Rock Sugar's version hands down for the same reasons. The whole CD is pretty brilliant actually, if you are into the mash up thing.

These guys are fun too. Bring the fun back in music which I love. Some bands take themselves way too seriously.

i have nothing against journey. it seems like a cool documentary but im not the biggest fan. not my cup of tea. much respect though one of the definitive rock bands no matter how cheesy they are.

Almost all reports suggest, and many of his public acts support the idea, that Schon is a world-class tool. I sense that Steele and I don't agree on much. It is nice to find some common ground here in the halls of BBG.

You have to love the dream that Pineda is living. Who wouldn't? Hard not to root for a two foot tall YouTube phenom that is getting a chance to walk in the shadow of giants like Perry.

And you have to believe that Schon was part of that special sauce that made Journey great when they were . . . and now makes them almost irrelevant when they aren't playing the music that they made with Perry.

Beautiful documentary. Journey may not be the best rock band in history but they sure had great times.
