Hawaii Opener - Rocko & The Devils

This is really really cool of the band to do... the band gave the final opening slot to stage manager Rocko Reedy's band, Rocko & The Rebels.

I like it. Even if they suck, I like it anyway. Great gesture.

I have never heard them, but I think Rocko plays base and the other guys in the band are crew from Journey (Rocko worked for them for a long time, apparently). good times!

so does that mean we'll be hearing Journey covers?
I was so over Journey 20+ years ago, although I was a fan early on and had front row seats in front of Neal Schon, and had an embroidered Members Only jacket with their logo on the back

I wonder if Dallas is on guitar?

I've also suggested before on this board, Joe O'Herlihy as a frontman singing ZZTop songs!!!

I wouldn't mind if they sounded too much like Journey, I liked them 20+ years ago (woohoo on the jacket, Lila!) and I still like them.

If anyone knows of a website where I can find out more info on this, please pass it on. We'd love to profile them for the site.

of course, Steve has been replaced by his clone, Steve Augeri (sp?). caught them over labor day at a benefit concert for our school district (they live here), and they actually still sounded good. weird that my kids were at the stage front, hearing the same songs from our teenage "backseat soundtrack"

You got it right, it is in fact Steve Augeri....he replaced Steve Perry (he's ai'ght but I much prefer Steve Perry's vocals) and joined Neal Schon, Ross Valory, Jonathan Cain, Deen Castronovo to take Journey back on the road.


Good thing


Good music!
