Q What can you tell me about Journey’s new lead singer?

-Carol Ann Marks, Wooster, Ohio

When the previous singer departed at the end of 2007, guitarist Neal Schon turned to the Internet and youtube.com to find the band’s new front man, Arnel Pineda. Pineda, 41, hails from the Philippines and had been singing Journey songs with his band, The Zoo, for the past couple of years. “I’m actually looking forward to the scrutiny I’ll get from the hardcore Journey fans,” Pineda says. “I know they’ll expect me to sound exactly like ‘The Voice’ (original lead singer Steve Perry), but that will never happen. There’s only one Steve Perry in the world.”
