journey and arnel pineda on ellen

Everybody's favorite band Journey, along with new lead singer Arnel Pineda, performed on The Ellen Degeneres Show today.

As everyone knows now, the band found Pineda through the internet, when they saw clips of the 40-year-old singer from the Philippines covering Journey songs in no-name bar bands. The rest, as they say, is history. Pineda undoubtedly has the voice. Hell—dare I say it?—the guy does Steve Perry better than Steve Perry.

Here's a GQ feature on Journey and Pineda's story: HE DIDN’T STOP BELIEVIN'. Plucked from obscurity and thrust into the spolight, the guy is now Manila's number one son. Rock and roll.

UPDATE: Here's yet another story on new Journey front man Arnel Pineda, from CBS News: A Journey Back. Don't stop believin'.
