Greatest Press Release Of November 2006

From the interweb’s no. 1 repository of conceptual humor, Blabbermouth.net :

The dust is still settling from the successful tour that JOURNEY and DEF LEPPARD just finished. The bands were together pretty much from late June until this past Sunday (November 19), playing to sold-out crowds all across North America. Neither band has ever been afraid to share a stage with anyone else, but DEF LEPPARD guitarist Phil Collen (above) told Launch that his group had to work extra hard this time to keep up with their touring partners. “JOURNEY really upped their game, you know, they’re a great band, and then, you know, we’d have to go on after that,” he said. “And, you know, if you’re following ‘Don’t Stop Believin”, which was, like, a huge hit, and still is ” you know, it’s, like, one of the Top 10 downloads of last year ” you (chuckles), you better be up to your game. So that just made us just raise the bar ourselves.”

    I’m still loyal to Steve Perry so I prefer to spend my cash at Journey tribute band Evolution shows. Real Journey fans aren’t really all that happy with the replacement who replaced Steve Perry. It’s kinda sad that they’ve become my favorite band, but then again it’s not like Matador is putting out anything worth listening to anymore. Evolution!!!
