New Doc Looks at Journey's Lead Singer Search

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - The resurgence of Journey through the band's discovery of a new lead singer via the Internet gets a close-up look on a new PBS documentary.

"Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey" airs on Sept. 30 as part of the network's Independent Lens series.

It's the story of how Journey guitarist Neal Schon found a replacement for front man Steve Perry by searching YouTube videos, and the band's eventual integration of Arnel Pineda into its lineup.

It wasn't easy.

Some longtime Journey fans were reluctant to accept the presence of Pineda, a 45-year-old Filipino singer, into an American band that had been dominated by Perry's presence and soaring vocals.

Pineda joined Journey in December 2007. Schon says Pineda reinvigorated the group famous for such hits as "Don't Stop Believin'," ''Faithfully" and "Open Arms."
