In positions1 through 10 for me is a band called 'Punch You in the Mouth'.  It probably doesn't exist, but I like it a lot anyway because it sounds like the exact opposite of KISS.

Nope.  Most of the Augeri material was heavier than the Perry material.
Plus, Perry's voice sucked post "Frontiers."   I prefer Augeri's rock voice
over Perry's croning voice.  Saw both in concert and Augeri wins.

Oh my God, Skip.  I think you're the only person on the planet to feel that way, considering Augeri only sung about an album & a half worth of material.  Unfortunately he didn't survive too long.  By the way, when you saw him in concert, they were tracking vocals (unless you saw the Vegas show).  That was the reason for his dismissal.  It was really digging on Schon.

So you're throwing out the Infinity, Evolution, Departure, 2 tracks from Dream After Dream, Escape, Street Talk, Frontiers, the Tron Soundtrack song, Raised On Radio, and Trial By Fire for the shitty songs on Arrival (most weren't even written by the band), 6 songs from Generations and two tracks from the Red album which couldn't even interest a record company?

Ok.

The kind of comment made by someone who worships Kiss, thus illustrating his tastes in singers.

LMFAO!

That's like saying "Oh, since 1984--Freddie's voice sucked!" (the cigarettes).

I may have not have seen Perry live (born in 1990), but I own plenty of Journey bootlegs, and I can tell you: Steve Perry is probably the best LIVE singer ever! The guy RARELY flubbed a note live--and if he did, he fixed it!

1) Queen
2) Muse
3) Radiohead
4) Led Zeppelin
5) Pink Floyd

I don't care about the rest. It's all about tastes. I may include serious bands Yes or Rush but I don't like them, so I would include  more "sillier" acts like Franz Ferdinand or Supergrass cause I personally love those bands. So the rest of the list doesn't matter.

Totally spot on, Gregsynth.  I saw them live four times, all with Perry.  Never a bad note.  Not one.   And to sing that range, which at times was much higher in pitch than say Freddie or Robert Palmer, for that many years?  Incredible.  Journey is on their third singer in the last ten years since Perry left.  And the rumour is, they're looking for #4.

But let's give ol' Steve Augeri his due.  Look at this catalog of material he's graced us with:
Higher Place
All The Way
Signs Of Life
Faith In The Heartland
State Of Grace

Maybe Skip just needs a better set of speakers or something.

Perry has an incomparable voice (unless you're comparing it to Rik Emmett, at which point it gets competetive) for that particlar sound. No question.  Huge love and respect.  But I have to say he was a bit hard to watch sometimes.  He always performs like he's entertaining a large group of deaf people. 'One more time' you get a finger stuck up in the air, 'Two hearts' you get two. 'Roll the dice', he rolls the dice. 'On and on and on and on' he rolls his hand.  'Searching in the night' you get Steve searching with his hand above his eyes.  Paiiiinnful.

I do give Augeri the most credit out of all the Perry replacements: He brought his own song-writing into the mix and brought a nice new sound to "update" Journey's sound. If Neal Schon didn't over-tour the guy, he would probably still be in Journey. JSS was good, but he lacked range for most of Journey's songs (they were written for a countertenor--Steve Perry), and the Drummer, Deen Castronovo "helped out" by either singing the top notes (like the whole Freddie/Roger thing), or he would sing whole songs (like Mother Father). Arnel (the latest singer), has great energy and stage presence, but sorry--his live pitch is awful.

The only real criticism I have of Augeri, was that after 2002/3, he started using "backing tracks," but then again, Neal's fault.

Ok.

Steve Augeri was in Journey for around 9 years.  He sang on two studio cds ("Arrival" and "Generations"), one studio e.p. ("Red 13"), "Remember Me" (from the "Armageddon" soundtrack), plus a few other b-sides/import tracks.  I wouldn't doubt that he played more shows than Perry did.

No, they weren't using tracking vocals on every tour that he was involved with.  You need to be better informed before
making your statements.

Perry used to be good, but that ended due to his alcoholism and cocaine usage.  The guy's voice is toast and has been
since "Frontiers."

Augeri was dismissed from Journey because Schon is a f*cking coke-headed, alcoholic asshole.  Cain is just as bad.
Augeri had a major throat infection which involved him taking some time off to recover.  But the two aholes booked
another tour (something like the 6th or 7th tour in a row since Augeri started).  They had told him they weren't going to
tour that particular summer, then changed their minds when LiveNation came calling.

The bottom line is Schon hates Journey (because they have to play the Perry material) and it eats away at him that
the only way he's going to make money is by playing the same 12 Perry songs over and over again. 

When they were recording "Generations" he recorded his parts then left.  All he was interested in doing was that shit
project called Soul SirkUS.  The record company didn't back him up, the cd flopped, and that just pissed him off.
Back to Journey to pay for the alimony he owed his 4 or 5 ex-wives.

Journey "Arrival"

1. "Higher Place"   Jack Blades, Neal Schon
2. "All the Way"   Schon, Jonathan Cain, Michael Rhodes, Steve Augeri
3. "Signs of Life"   Schon, J. Cain, Elizabeth Cain
4. "All the Things"   Schon, Cain, Andre Pessis
5. "Loved By You"  Cain, Tammy Hyler, Tribble
6. "Livin' to Do"   Schon, Matt Schon, Cain, Tribble
7. "World Gone Wild"  Blades, Schon, Cain
8. "I Got a Reason"  Blades, Schon, Cain
9. "With Your Love"   Schon, J. Cain, E. Cain
10. "Lifetime of Dreams"   Schon, Cain, Tribble
11. "Live and Breathe"   Schon, Cain, Augeri
12. "Nothin' Comes Close"  Schon, Cain, Augeri
13. "To Be Alive Again"   Cain, Augeri, Tribble, Eric Bazilian
14. "Kiss Me Softly"   Blades, Schon, Augeri
15. "We Will Meet Again"  Schon, Augeri, Tribble

Schon, Cain, and/or Augeri co-wrote every track. 

It's evident you don't know what you're talking about.

"Raised On Radio" and "Trial By Fire" suck.  They're nothing more than
Steve Perry solo lps.

Sucked as in you can no longer sing.  Your voice sounds like shit.  Your vocals are processed to hell
in the studio because you can't cut it anymore.  In concert you need to lower the key to the songs
because you can't hit the high notes anymore.  Your once smooth voice now sounds like you
gargle with razor blades each morning.

Perry really knew how to take care of his voice.

Gulp, gulp, gulp

Snort, snort, snort

Perry's been spitting blood for decades now.  His vocal chords are just shreds now.
Perry was flying his entire time in Journey.   Cocaine will do that to you.
