What has the band Journey been doing? Also, are Joe Perry of Aerosmith and former Journey frontman Steve Perry related? I've heard this over the years but don't know if it's true.

Journey toured earlier this year with Peter Frampton in support of their new album, Arrival, which was released in April. The group currently is led by the phenomenal vocals of Steve Augeri, who sounds remarkably like Steve Perry. "Journey has always embraced new members, and new members have always been crucial to Journey's continued success as a band," says Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain. And it may be quite an old rock tale, but Joe Perry and Steve Perry aren't brothers. Joe Perry, guitarist for Aerosmith, was born in Lawrence, Mass., while former Journey vocalist Steve Perry is from Hanford, Calif.
