Extract from the interview, the JSS part!

There has been a change in the Journey camp since you were here with Jeff Scott Soto standing in and now replacing Steve Auggeri. How is Steve at the moment?
It was not the first time Steveís voice had been faltering, and heís had little bouts of voice trouble since 2000. It got to the point where we didnít really want to go back out on the road with a guy who wasnít sure. The rigors of the road proved to be a little too much for him over the years. The vocal chords can be fragile and he had something going on. Sometimes it was a matter of speaking him up, but I donít really know what exactly happened. We decided to bring Jeff in, it was trial by fire if you like, and he went out every night and got the job done. He`s excelling more and more like the singer in Journey.
Will he be rejoining the band at some point?
Jeff is a great singer and very versatile. We canít afford not to win every night and people pay good money to see us. We wish Steve all the best, and I hope his vocal issues get resolved, but we couldnít put all our eggs in his vocal basket, there was just too much at stake. He had good shows and some not so good shows. We needed consistency night after night, so we had to move on and work with Jeff and heís now our singer.
Neal played with Jeff in Soul Sirkus, so he knew all about him. What did you know about Jeff prior to him joining?
Oh, sure. I helped do the Soul Sirkus album; they did that at my house. Neal called me about Jeff and said he thought he was a really strong singer. We then jammed together as a band and it turned out really well. It was amazing how quickly Jeff picked up all the stuff.
