Adventures in Ancient Meat-Rock

Any way you don’t want it

First came its revival on MTV’s “Laguna Beach” a couple of years ago, then the song was chosen to abruptly end the most revered television drama of our time. For a relic from the days when giant beetle-shaped warships were considered perfectly fine album art material, Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” suddenly has disproportionately huge cultural cache.

So this morning, Staticblog received a press release from the last remaining Journey-men, saying that the second guy they have hired to sing their arena-rock castrato arias since Steve Perry jumped scarab, Jeff Scott Soto, and the band have “just decided to go our separate ways, no pun intended,” according to lead guitarist/Catskills comedian Neal Schon.

Now, if millions of people just listened to your song on “The Sopranos,” wouldn’t it make sense, in these reunion-mad times, to collect your old soprano and go out on tour? You just know that “Journey Featuring Steve Perry” is going to happen at a casino near you, and we only have David Chase to blame.

Now, what’s the proper way to express gastric distress in print? Blurg?
