Journey - at the airport - Neal Schon and Arnel Pineda

I guess the only thing weirder about being an old Journey fan from the '70s is not recognizing them reincarnated in 2008, and realizing they're back touring! Apparently they played a stadium event last night, and sold out the Concord arena tomorrow night and have been touring a lot.

Neal Schon and his wife ended up sitting in front of me on the flight to Oakland, and I mentioned how I was a fan and used to see the band at the Days on the Green.

Towards the end of the flight, the flight attendants asked Neal to the back for photographs with them, which he obliged. I hope they didn't mind me tapping the back of their chair trying to remember the melody to "when the lights go out in the city..."

Seemed like really nice guys. I'm now wondering what they sound like now. Apparently they found their current singer Arnel Pineda after seeing him sing their songs on youtube!

Photo was taken with a Fuji F30, f4, ISO 400, 35mm equivalent focal length of 85mm.
