New Journey documentary follows lead singer Arnel Pineda
Arnel Pineda's amazing trip from the streets of Manila to the front of the stage with Journey is the subject of a new documentary titled Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey. The film is set to debut this week at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
It's rumored that Pineda suffered greatly from burnout and homesickness during his first year or so with the band. In the trailer above, there seem to be mentions of it as well. It'll be interesting to see how the film balances a fair and accurate reporting of his time with the band alongside any fandom tendencies that documentaries like these tend to include.
One touching moment, I think, is when Pineda addresses the shoes he's forced to fill and admits he's as big of a Steve Perry fan as the rest of us. I can only imagine what it'd be like for these two singers to meet and chat together someday.
