Complete List Of All Journey Current And Former Band Members
Feature Photo: Bruce Alan Bennett / Shutterstock.com
I first fell in love with the band Journey when I was in high school and brought the band’s album Infinity when it was first released. Their record company Columbia Records at the time heavily promoted the album. It was Steve Perry’s first recording with the band and Columbia knew they had a hit on their hands. I was blown away by Steve Perry’s voice and completely floored by how great the songs were on the record. Journey became one of the biggest bands of the seventies. They helped define the term “Stadium Rock.” The band has gone through multiple lineup changes over the years. This article takes a look at the revolving door of musicians who have come and gone as members of the band Journey .
The Orginal Journey Band Members
Neal Schon, born on February 27, 1954, in Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma, is an American musician best known as the lead guitarist for Journey. He was one of the founding members of the band in 1973. Over the years, Schon played a significant role in shaping the band’s sound and has appeared on every Journey album to date, from their self-titled debut album “Journey” (1975) to their most recent releases. He primarily plays the electric guitar but has been known to play acoustic guitar and perform backing vocals as well. Schon co-wrote some of the band’s most iconic songs like “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Wheel in the Sky,” and “Any Way You Want It.” Besides his work with Journey, Neal Schon has had a rich solo career and has also been a part of other bands like Santana and Bad English .
Ross Valory, born on February 2, 1949, in San Francisco, California, is an American musician renowned for being Journey’s original bass guitarist. He joined the band at its inception in 1973 and contributed to albums like “Journey” (1975), “Infinity” (1978), “Escape” (1981), and many more. Valory played both the bass guitar and occasionally provided backing vocals. He was a part of Journey until he was fired from the band in 2020. Apart from Journey, Valory was involved in the Steve Miller Band and also had a side project called “The Vu.”
Gregg Rolie was born on June 17, 1947, in Seattle, Washington, and is an American keyboardist and singer. He was a founding member of Journey and joined the band in 1973. Rolie played keyboards and was the lead vocalist on the band’s first three albums: “Journey” (1975), “Look into the Future” (1976), and “Next” (1977). He left Journey in 1980 to pursue other musical endeavors. Notably, he was a member of Santana before joining Journey and co-wrote and sang lead vocals on classics like “Black Magic Woman” and “Evil Ways.” After leaving Journey, he went on to form The Gregg Rolie Band and also joined Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band .
George Tickner, born on September 8, 1946, in Syracuse, New York, is an American musician who played rhythm guitar for Journey. He was among the original members when the band was founded in 1973 but left shortly after the release of the band’s self-titled debut album in 1975. Tickner contributed to the writing of some early songs but didn’t stay with the band long enough to participate in the more commercial phases of Journey’s career. After leaving Journey, Tickner largely retired from professional music to pursue a career in medicine.
Charles “Prairie” Prince
Charles “Prairie” Prince, born on May 7, 1950, in Charlotte, North Carolina, was the original drummer for Journey when the band was formed in 1973. However, he never officially recorded with the band and left before their debut album was made. He is best known for his work with The Tubes , a San Francisco-based rock band. Though his time with Journey was short-lived, Prince has had a significant career in music, working with artists like Todd Rundgren, and Jefferson Starship, and as a session musician for various other artists.
The Next Phase and Beyond
Aynsley Dunbar, born on January 10, 1946, in Liverpool, England, is a British drummer known for his work with various rock and blues bands. He joined Journey in 1974, shortly after the band’s formation, and played on the albums “Journey” (1975), “Look into the Future” (1976), and “Next” (1977). Dunbar’s jazz-influenced drumming style added a unique element to Journey’s early sound. He left the band in 1978 before the band shifted to a more mainstream, commercial sound. Apart from Journey, Dunbar has had an extensive career, playing with artists like Frank Zappa, David Bowie, and Whitesnake.
Robert Fleischman, born on March 11, 1953, in Los Angeles, California, is an American musician who briefly served as Journey’s lead vocalist in 1977. Though he never appeared on any studio albums with Journey, he contributed to songwriting and is credited with co-writing songs like “Wheel in the Sky.” Fleischman was replaced by Steve Perry later in the same year he joined. Outside of Journey, Fleischman had a solo career and was a member of other rock bands like Vinnie Vincent Invasion.
Steve Perry , born on January 22, 1949, in Hanford, California, is an American singer known for his soaring vocals. He joined Journey in 1977 and quickly became the band’s iconic lead vocalist. Steve Perry played a significant role in Journey’s commercial success and was a key contributor to albums like “Infinity” (1978), “Evolution” (1979), “Escape” (1981), among others. He co-wrote and sang some of Journey’s most famous songs, including “Don’t Stop Believin'” and “Open Arms.” Perry left the band in 1998 due to health issues and to pursue a solo career, which itself has been highly successful, featuring hits like “Oh Sherrie.”
Steve Smith, born on August 21, 1954, in Whitman, Massachusetts, is an American drummer. He joined Journey in 1978, replacing Aynsley Dunbar, and played on some of their most successful albums like “Evolution,” “Escape,” and “Frontiers.” Known for his technical skill, Smith left the band in 1985 but returned for various stints, the latest being from 2015 to 2020. Outside of Journey, Smith has had a rich career in jazz and has been part of his own jazz fusion band, Vital Information.
Randy Jackson, born on June 23, 1956, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is an American musician, best known as a judge on the television show “American Idol.” He joined Journey as a bass player for a short stint during the mid-1980s and played on the 1986 album “Raised on Radio.” Jackson was part of the band’s transition towards a more pop-oriented sound during that period. Besides Journey, he has been an in-demand session musician and has produced and performed with a wide array of artists across genres.
Steve Augeri, born on January 30, 1959, in Brooklyn, New York, is an American rock singer best known for his work as the lead vocalist for Journey from 1998 to 2006. He was brought in as a replacement for Steve Perry and featured on albums like “Arrival” (2001) and “Generations” (2005). Augeri co-wrote songs for the band but had to leave in 2006 due to vocal issues. Outside of Journey, he has been involved in other bands like Tyketto and has also embarked on a solo career.
Jeff Scott Soto
Jeff Scott Soto, born on November 4, 1965, in Brooklyn, New York, is an American singer who served as Journey’s lead vocalist for a brief period from 2006 to 2007. He stepped in following Steve Augeri’s departure due to vocal issues but was in the band for less than a year.

Outside of Journey, Soto has a prolific career, having been a part of bands like Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force and Talisman, as well as a successful solo career.

Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent stop in Dripping Springs to rally for Take our Border Back convoy
Organizers and participants say they expect peaceful journey along the convoy's route..
DRIPPING SPRINGS — Joining the pep rally for the cross-country convoy protesting federal immigration policy Thursday evening, former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin and conservative rocker Ted Nugent took aim at the Democratic Biden administration.
"It's unconscionable. It is treasonous what our own federal government is doing to us in actually sanctioning an invasion, a foreign invasion, of our country across that border," Palin, a former governor of Alaska, told about 1,000 people in an outdoor venue in Dripping Springs operated by a local craft distillery. "Every state now is a border state. Every state is affected."
Nugent, a Detroit native nicknamed the "Motor City madman" for his in-your-face music style and loud guitar playing, turned up the volume. Without mentioning Joe Biden's name, Nugent used a vulgar scatological reference to describe him and then said of the president, "This devil scum snake thinks he's the commander in chief of the United States of America."

But the tone used by the two biggest names at the rally for the Take Our Border Back convoy that launched Monday and will end Saturday near Eagle Pass was actually a contrast from the lesser-known speakers who took the stage outside the One Shot Distillery and Brewery and those ralllygoers who agreed to be interviewed.
Organizers took pains to describe the journey and the stops along the way as peaceful, often invoking religious themes laced with heavy doses of patriotism.
Charles Crites said he heard about plans for a convoy from the East Coast to Texas to protest the Biden administration's immigration and border policies last week, and he had decided to get a head start on the drive.
Rather than waiting for the queue of passenger vehicles and motor homes to arrive from Virginia Beach, Va., to his home state of Florida on the first leg of the journey Monday, Crites and a friend got into a white Mercedes-Benz van and headed for the Lone Star State.
"I'm an old Ron Paul Republican," the 81-year-old Crites said as he waited in a parklike setting on the outskirts of Dripping Springs, about 25 miles southwest of Austin, for a rally at a nearby brewery and distillery Thursday afternoon. "So, my thinking is, obey the Constitution. Obey the law."
A border convoy is going through Texas. What we know about the 'Take Back Our Border' protest.
Crites, who was among a throng of people gathered amid an array of pro-Donald Trump and anti-Joe Biden flags and banners, is concerned by the massive surge in unauthorized crossings from Mexico into Texas over the past three years. And, like many of the others waiting with him for the rally, he expects the convoy organized by Take Our Border Back to remain nonconfrontational though its journey that will end near the Texas border city of Eagle Pass on Saturday. Other segments of the convoy will host rallies in San Ysidro, Calif., and Yuma, Ariz., on Saturday.
"We came out because we could and to see a part of this beautiful country," Crites said.
About 2 miles south on RM 12 in a recreational vehicle park, convoy co-organizer Craig Hudgins said the parade of vehicles arrived in Dripping Spring around 11 p.m. Wednesday. Many in the group spent the first part of Thursday touring the area on their own. Vehicles, many with Trump flags and stickers, could be seen along Dripping Springs' town center.
Residents driving by honked their horns, either in support or in opposition, at the visitors.

Hudgins described himself as a former Marine Corps major, a former airline pilot and a devout Catholic. He said he has been active in other pro-Trump events and conservative causes and pushed back against warnings that convoy participants are coming to Texas to provoke a showdown, either with immigrants or with supporters of President Biden's approach to immigration.
He made no apology for calling the waves of migrants arriving at the Texas-Mexico border, many from Central and South America, "an invasion" — a highly charged word that has been linked to perpetrators of violence, including the deadly August 3, 2019, mass shooting in El Paso where the gunman targeted people who he believed to be Hispanic.
"We are not here to upset people's lives," Hudgins said during an interview while standing outside his RV adorned with a giant American flag decal, Bible verses and patriotic slogans. "We want to stay out of the way of the National Guard."

Asked about the anti-immigrant rhetoric some have espoused on social media and other platforms discussing the convoy, Hudgins took a conciliatory tone.
"We have an obligation to care for these immigrants who've come here," he said, but cautioned that many of them are likely to be disappointed in the country they are seeking to adopt.
Another organizer, Robert Agee, pushed back at one narrative that cast the convoy as a vigilante mob that would seek to secure the U.S.-Mexico border by force. But he tacitly acknowledged that some with hard-line immigration views ascribe to such thinking.
"I get it. There are some people who want to do that," Agee said from the stage. "But I tell you what: We're not going to do that. We're going to have a prayer rally."
Pete Chambers, a Texas resident and one-time Green Beret who promoted the convoy on conservative media outlets, said in a brief interview that he was not discouraged by reports that convoy participation was closer to 50 or 60 vehicles than the tens of thousands some organizers had predicted.
"Who cares?" he said, arguing that the depth of commitment of those making the drives and joining the rallies outweighed the raw numbers.
Although the expected rematch between Trump and Biden in the presidential race later this year was on full display, given the buttons, hats and campaign regalia worn and carried by rallygoers, the former president's name was scarcely mentioned on stage by the organizers or by Nugent and Palin.
Biden was not granted such anonymity. Nugent, a self-avowed Second Amendment hard-liner, spent more time talking about gun rights and referred to Palin as "a babe." He warned that even though Texas has some of the more gun-friendly laws in the nation, unnamed political figures are still seeking to roll them back.
"That's the tip of the spear," Nugent said. "If another man thinks he can tell me where, if, how, or what with I can defend my life, that is a bad, bad, evil man on the side of Joe Biden."
Some GOP leaders from Texas, including Fort Worth-area U.S. Rep. Roger Williams and Rep. Keith Self of McKinney, have expressed support for the convoy. Gov. Greg Abbott, whose hard-line border policies — including installing razor wire along the Rio Grande, deploying a border barrier of floating buoys on the river and building unconnected portions of border wall — have intensified a standoff between the state and federal government over border security, thrusting the governor into the national spotlight, has been less vocal about the convoy.
The Texas leg of the convoy is scheduled to end Saturday at the Cornerstone Children's Ranch in Quemado, 17 miles north of Eagle Pass.
On Sunday, Abbott along with 14 of his fellow Republican governors, will meet with reporters at Eagle Pass' Shelby Park, which has been transformed into a staging ground for Operation Lone Star, the governor's $11 billion border security initiative.
In Dripping Springs, at the gathering place near One Shot Distillery and Brewery, Rudy Martinez said he sympathizes with migrants who come to the U.S. seeking work and better lives. But he strongly objects to them coming into Texas without legal authorization.
"There's issues that need to be fixed," said Martinez, a San Antonio native who operates a vending business out of his black 2019 Ford F-150 rich in Trump regalia and anti-Biden T-shirts, flags and baseball caps. His largest flag read, "Even my dog hates Biden."
Martinez, who said he drove to Virginia Beach to join the convoy from the start and sold items along the way, said he voted for Trump in the past two presidential elections and will eagerly do so again.
"Hopefully, we can make a change with a new president coming in," he said.
