Journey vocalists Arnel Pineda and Steve Perry meet for the first time


041217-ArnelPineda_PUSH.jpgSa TV Patrol, nakilala na ni Journey vocalist Arnel Pineda ang dating frontman ng banda na si Steve Perry. Naganap ang pagkikita sa Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony sa New York.

Hindi man nakasama si Arnel sa mga inductees, masaya siya para sa grupo. “I am so excited for the guys kasi they will be inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame.”

Masayang-masaya rin si Arnel sa pagkikita nila ng dating frontman. “God has been really good. It’s been such a blessed 10 years for me and for the band and we’re going strong.” Pinasalamatan rin ni Steve si Arnel sa entablado.

Saan man daw mapunta si Arnel, isa lang ang laging dala-dala niya. “Dala ko ang bandera ng Pilipinas. Every time I go up on stage so saan man ako mapunta … yung bandera ng Pilipinas at being their kababayan yun ang lagi kong nirerepresent.”

May personal na kahulugan din daw kay Arnel ang hit song ng Journey na “Don't Stop Believing.” “Ako I never stop believing in myself. Hindi ako tumigil e kasi ito lang yung alam ko, wag kang papatalo, lumaban ka, maging matapang ka.”
