“They're bombarded with all kinds of music, yet they chose to hum ours. That's the best nod you can get. The best testimonial to Journey is it appeals to the ages.”
“The parents used to drag the little ones, and now the kids are coming--and they're not little anymore. Things are evolving. Maybe there's a renaissance for our music.”
“It was like dragging a sled up a hill, a very heavy sled. It's been a long way to climb our way back, and yet I always believed in this catalog.”
“We've got a tremendous catalog of lots of hit songs, which I wrote either a half or a third of”
“We're sort of superstitious now. The albums that had the beetle on it did better than the ones that didn't. It's with us. It's part of our allure.”
