Journey on American Idol '09; Bedtime Stories and Monsters vs. Aliens

All I can say is that Journey's absolutely back! Hopefully, you all saw the Final 8 Performance of "Don't Stop Believing" on American Idol this week. It's great to finally hear a Journey group performance on the show "after all these years". I was hoping that Journey would be a special guest on the show where all of the finalists would perform Journey tunes. It makes sense since AI Judge Randy Jackson was Journey's bass player in 1986 and toured with Journey on the Raised on Radio Tour. Maybe next year? Also, in case you missed it, "Don't Stop Believing" was featured in the movie "Bedtime Stories" with Adam Sandler. Also, just last weekend, I heard "Who's Crying Now?" played in the movie "Monsters vs. Aliens". It's a true compliment to have your band's songs featured in movies and television shows (plus, I'm sure the band gets royalties too!). Anyway, Neal/Jon/Ross/Deen/Arnel, keep up the great work and hope to see you in NJ in 2009!
