Podcast: Keeping time with Ross Valory
When it comes to getting answers about Journey, there are few people on the planet you can trust more than bassist Ross Valory. (The other name that comes to mind? Guitarist Neal Schon -- he and Valory are the sole remaining founding members.)
So imagine how difficult it was to squeeze 35 years of band history into about 25 minutes. The result of which is our Stuck in the 80s podcast this week -- Journey's rebirth, featuring a nice chat with Ross, who happily answered my queries just hours before taking the stage for a show that night in Iowa.
What will Ross reveal? The whereabouts of former members Gregg Rolie (umm, here) and Steve Smith (and here) for starters. And he'll surprise you with revealing who came up with the idea for the 3-disc set we know as "Revelation." For the rest, you'll just have to listen.
