Finally, a Journey interview!
Today is the culmination of my very being: I get to talk to one of the original members of Journey, the first band I ever saw perform live -- and the unofficial symbol of our Stuck in the 80s kingdom.
Ross Valory, the nimble-fingered bassist of the San Francisco band since 1973, has invited me to give him a ring tonight prior to the band's July 30 show here in Tampa with Heart and Cheap Trick.
I hope he's ready for some serious fan slobbering, because he's going to get an earful during our short chat. You can bet I'll ask him about Steve Perry, new singer Arnel Pineda, former keyboardist Gregg Rolie and the band's new 2-disc set, which I still listen to about once every 4 hours.
As always though, I'm happy to ask him your questions as well. So drop me a comment with suggested questions. The interview begins at 6 p.m. so time is runnin' short.
