The following conversation took place sometime in the early 1980s.
Band Manager: “Okay fellas, I hope you’re ready for the big video shoot today.”
Journey: “Today?! We thought it was next week.”
Band Manager: “Nope. Let’s go. A deal’s a deal. The camera crew is waiting.”
Journey: “But we don’t have our instruments.”
Band Manager: “Well, you’ll just have to do it without them.”
Journey: “Okay, but only if we get to dress like stalkers and hang around a warehouse following around some girl that sort of looks like David Bowie.”
Band Manager: “Deal.”
And the rest, as they say, is rock and roll history.
