Journey's Drummers Are Among The Best of the Best

It seems there are as many “Best” lists as there are contenders for any given category. Drummers are no exception to the rule. And depending upon which list you

they'll leave behind and their departure from the music world. And as I

pondered those things, it occurred to me that Arnel's talent and the very…

Arnel Pineda: National Treasure and Rock Music Hero

Much had been written about the rise of Arnel Pineda to fame and superstardom. But his story is such a great read that it deserves to be told and retold.
