According to RollingStone.com, new JOURNEY singer Arnel Pineda isn't finding the band's current North American tour nearly as fulfilling as his bandmates are. He misses his girlfriend and son, and the grueling pace is grinding him down. "It's very, very sad," he tells RollingStone.com. "There are days I just break down and cry. This is a job I'm doing for my family. That's all the consolation I'm getting." Traveling around America isn't what he expected. "It's all buses, stage, microphone," he says. "I never really get to go around and walk. They wake me up for soundcheck, then I wait until the show at nine. It's a fantastic job, but at the same time it's a curse. . . . I told Neal [Schon, guitar] that the only thing that will make me quit this is if I get sick. I guess that's the same reason Steve Perry [former JOURNEY singer] bailed out."Read the entire interview from RollingStone.com.
