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.

    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
