... any of you people on MySpace, delete Journey!

If you're really pissed off at what they've done to Jeff, then if you delete them from your friends list they will notice the amount of friends they have depleting, and hopefully it might give them an idea of how many fans they've lost through their recent actions.

Whilst I applaud your intentions, I doubt this will have much effect. Journey’s MySpace has over 134,000 friends listed. Despite all the thousands of posts on various forums in the past couple of days criticising Journey I would guess there are some 500 people maximum across all these forums who are even aware the Jeff has gone. Of those 500, maybe half have MySpace accounts and if every one of them took Journey off their friends list it wouldn’t even make a dent in the total figure.

The vast majority of that 134,000 probably don’t even realise that Steve Perry is no longer with them.

Also, the Journey MySpace is only partly maintained by anybody directly connected to Journey (and ironically it was Jeff who instigated that). The bulk of the site is maintained as a corporate presence by Sony purely as a means of shifting the classic Journey albums (Journey are no longer with Sony but they own the rights to the old recordings). You will notice that the majority of ‘friends’ on the front page are actually other Sony artists. It’s quite cynical really, and there was a tug of war a few months ago between Journey the band and Sony the record company over who should update the MySpace site – I think the record company won out, subject to a few compromises.

Hi Marty,

I think some of that info should come in handy to some of us who don't really know the "inside". I just hope people's intentions are at least felt in some way by the person who matters here anyway... JEFF.

Hi Marty,

I know it probably wouldn't make any difference at all but I wanted to do it out of principal lol. To be honest when I've looked at their MySpace page today their no. of friends has still gone up, but I know a fair few on the MR board wanted to do it out of principal too.

Made me feel a bit better anyway lol.

I agree. But instead of simply removing Journey from friends lists (which would probably go unnoticed), a more effective approach would perhaps be some form of bulletin campaign via MySpace. I have seen a few already on this but if enough of them appeared at once (from multiple sources) it certainly would draw attention to a particular issue.

I'm not suggesting that you do that of course. I'm just speaking hypothetically that a positive action would be more effective than a negative action.

I just removed them because they disgust me. If they don't care about one of their own members why would I assume they care about their fans? I like your bulletin idea, but I really don't want to give them any additional publicity. Now JSS bulletins...THAT would be a different story!

I have posted it whenever you have also Smile

By the way Nath, I will send you a text message tomorrow to make sure I can actually send messages to a French number, then obviously if it doesn't work I'll still be able to let you know before we leave for Paris. If it does work I'll contact you (or you can contact me if you want, I have an awful memory!) on tuesday and we'll sort out a place to meet flower

Rather than show Journey how p*ssed off you are, its better to get all your friends and acquaintances switched on to JSS and his music.

What has happened has happened, they will reap their rewards.

Our task now is to make sure that Jeff gets the recognition that he so richly derserves.

My abiding memory of the boy will be coming off stage (before the encore) at SRF when I was so proud of what he had done, where he had been and the manner in which he had conducted himself that I really did feel like a surrogate father.

I'm with you Uncle Hefty,
Is the best we can do... it's a stupidity wasting our strength insulting Journey... Hope we can help Jeff to have the recognition he deserves! I love you

Uncle Hefty is right. We are wasting our precious time giving Journey too much "publicity" by continuously talking about them! Let's let them wither away by forgetting them altogether..that's what will really hurt them...people who were fans dropping them like they did Jeff. Mad
As for Jeff, he has always had our support and recognition...as I always say; his true fans remain loyal.

It's hard to forget! They surely betrayed Jeff but also all the fans who wanted so much an album of Journey with Jeff, he deserve it so much! I was one of those fan.Neutral

The waste is total for me!No

I also deleted Journey from my myspace page and knew it wouldn't really have any effect. Marty is exactly right about the numbers. They have enough fans that it won't make a big dent in their numbers. This may get the ball rolling and could ultimately end with their demise.
It's kind of like how I am no longer a Criss Angel fan (for reasons I won't go into here) and I told another ex fan, "Don't worry, for ever fan that leaves there will be a whole new crop of 12 year olds to replace us".
Journey has pissed off a lot of fans and it may have an impact on their wallets in the long run but we should focus our attentions on Jeff and turning people on to his music. I've been doing that for the past 5 years. I joked with Jeff last November at the meet and greet that I was soley responsible for anyone in America knowing about him. Meaning that I have been telling anyone I run into about him and turning them on to his music. I wasn't being arrogant and he knew what I meant. I'm going to keep doing just that.
I'm looking at all this as a positive experience for Jeff. Because he was in Journey he's gained tons of new fans that didn't know about him before. He was virtually unknown in America until Journey. Let's keep doing what we can to make him more well known and help make him realize his dream of becoming a household name.

I was one of those people that didn't know about Jeff before he was w/ Journey, sad but true Crying or Very sad I can't understand why I didn't know about this amazing, talented man before! He blew me away the moment he started singing. My best friend STILL laughs at me, I just stood there w/ my mouth open, in complete awe of this man and I had no idea who he was! Next month will be the first year anniversay of the night my life changed forever, I saw Jeff perform for the first time and I've not been the same since. July 22nd, a night I will always remember! Very Happy

I know how you feel, Sherrie. It was 5 years ago that I saw Jeff for the first time and not only was I impressed with his singing and stage presence but also his personality. I got to hang out with him for a little while and he's a very down to earth person. I didn't have any idea who he was at the time. I immediately came home to find out all about him.

So did I, I looked him up online as soon as I got home. I probably drove everyone crazy in the car, on the way home, talking about "that singer for Journey" Now, all I have to do is say "Jeff" and everyone knows who I'm talking about geek
