Journey Replace Augeri For Good

Filed under: Uncategorized — enews @ 4:18 pm

Journey Replace Augeri For Good…. Journey frontman Steve Augeri has been permanently replaced in the classic rock act – by his stand-in.

Jeff Scott Soto, who stood in for ailing Augeri on Journey’s recent tour with Def Leppard, was announced as the group’s new full-time frontman late on Tuesday (19Dec06).

But there are no hard feelings – Augeri realises his touring days are behind him, and his former bandmates are wishing him well.

In a statement, the band writes, “We are so grateful to Steve for all the years he dedicated to Journey.

“We thank Steve for all his hard work and we wish him only the best in his future endeavours.”

Augeri states, “Singing for Journey these last eight years have been the most challenging and the most rewarding of my career.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the band, and especially the fans, for the privilege of being part of a musical legacy that has touched so many hearts and souls.

“I wish my fellow bandmates success and happiness as they continue to make great music in the future, as I will strive to do the same myself.”

Augeri is currently recording his debut solo album, In The Moment, which is due out next summer (07).
