Journey’s Road Crew Performs a Pretty Flawless Version of “Separate Ways”

You nev­er know what the YouTube rec­om­men­da­tion algo­rithm will serve up next. Above, we have Jour­ney’s road crew per­form­ing “Sep­a­rate Ways” as part of a con­cert sound­check. And it turns out the crew has some real chops. At least accord­ing to the YouTube com­ments, the crew/band fea­tures Scott Apple­ton on gui­tar. (In recent years, he has served as the gui­tar tech for Rush’s Alex Life­son.) And on drums, we seem­ing­ly have Jim Han­d­ley, a Nashville-based drum­mer who per­forms in the Jour­ney trib­ute band, Res­ur­rec­tion. The actu­al per­for­mance starts around the 30 sec­ond mark. Enjoy.

    Road crew sounds bet­ter than the actu­al band

  • Shaun murphy says:

    Jour­ney toured to death. Yet the road crew sound­ed tight „Steve Augueri blew his voice out that’s why they replaced him. I am from Glouces­ter ma Steve augueri played a solo con­cert his voice was awful I felt bad for him he was a good enter­tain­er they toured so much that’s why Steve per­ry want­ed to leave to from road burn

  • Nelson Duviella says:

    Yes they sound­ed great. But I will still see the ori­gion­als.
