  1. I still have that Journey CD I bought back in the Eighties and it is still on rotation in my car. They should be in the shameful Hall of Fame.

    • VERY NICE! Yeah, there are those bands whose greatest hits are like traveling body parts! Aerosmith and The Who ‘Greatest Hits’ are that way for me… LOL! \m/\m/
