'Don't Stop Believin' - The Untold Story Of Journey' Due In May

"Don't Stop Believin' - The Untold Story Of Journey", a book by U.K.-based Neil Daniels, will be published by Omnibus Press on May 3.

JOURNEY are one of the most successful American melodic rock bands in history with record sales of over 75 million. The recent phenomenal success of "Don't Stop Believin'" — the most downloaded song of all time — has given JOURNEY a new lease of life and as such they have undergone a massive rise in popularity. For the first time ever, their entire history is explored in depth in this definitive biography which charts the many highs and many lows of one of America's most beloved rock bands.

"Don't Stop Believin'" is not only JOURNEY's signature song but also a motto they have lived by which has taken them through some difficult times. The previously untold story begins in 1973 when the band was hastily assembled in San Francisco, California and takes the reader on a journey through the early jazz fusion years, the dramatic change in sound to AOR/melodic rock, the numerous lineup changes, the hiring and firing of their first frontman Robert Flesichman and, of course, the enormous success they would achieve with Steve Perry as well as those years following Perry's first (and second) departure. The topsy-turvy life of the band thereafter with three more singers is also explored in detail. JOURNEY's renewed popularity with the Filipino singer Arnel Pineda and the success of the hit TV show "Glee" has meant that JOURNEY's music is played in millions of households all around the world.

JOURNEY are now at the top of their game and receiving more acclaim and exposure since their early eighties peak years with the iconic multi-million selling "Escape" and "Frontiers" albums. Using original interviews and a wealth of research, "The Untold Story Of Journey" follows their career as they formed; matured and flourished and succeeded and failed. It is a story filled with heartache, bitterness and behind the scenes squabbles but also creativity, dedication, passion and drive.
