Arnel Pineda Says Steve Perry Can Have His Spot In Journey Back

After recently shooting down rumors of wanting to leave the band, Journey frontman Arnel Pineda is raising the issue once again. He now says that original frontman Steve Perry should return to the band.

The new comments stem from a Twitter conversation Pineda had with a fan who tweeted him a video of Perry performing with the Eels.

"He should come back. His voice us still there . . . missed that voice." Arnel later added, "He can take over too. It's his righteous place anyway . . . wanna see them happy together."

Earlier this year, Pineda issued a statement shooting down rumors he wanted to leave the band:

"I am as happy to be in Journey today as I was when I first joined the group. Next to my family in Manila, Journey is my family," he wrote to Ultimate Classic Rock. "I wish whoever is making up these lies would put their time to good use and stop spreading these false stories."
