Journey Arnel Pineda: Don't Stop Believin'

When Journey's Filipino lead singer Arnel Pineda was set to leave for his European and U.S. tour with Journey early this year, he gave out a "drop-by" concert at the Hard Rock Cafe at the Glorietta in Makati City.
Upon learning this, we dropped by ourselves to catch a glimpse of our idol, with my son Joshua, and wife Ruby.
As I have said, Arnel Pineda is a unique musical phenomenon because he has bridged the generational gap that usually separates a father's musical choice from that of his next-genration son.
But Joshua and I share common choice of music in Journey.
While I grew up with Steve Perry, Joshua opened his arms to Journey with Arnel Pineda.
But we both love Journey's music. We share a common passion.
So we watched Arnel Pineda at Hard Rock dish out Journey classics appreciated by both parent and child.
That, you cannot experience with many other bands or singers.
We took video shots of the Hard Rock affair.
One of them was Journey's signature song: Don't Stop Believin'
