UASSUHO Journey: They’re a CHICK band…

“A CHICK band??” (Soundboard #4)

This one came from a couple threads/discussions/arguments on the Journey Digest. There was a contingent of male fans that were really pissy about Journey having so many female fans (and about Steve Perry, in particular); this was around the time of Trial By Fire’s release. You see that attitude in music fandom a LOT — that guys are into the music, and women wanna get into the band’s pants. Hell, heavy metal & the Hair Bands of the 80s were built around that attitude.

Never mind that many of us women probably have far more of a music education than those so-called “I’m into Neal’s Guitar Playing Mastery” male fans…
