I figured it was time to start an actual feature on here. And I couldn't think of a better person to start 'er off than Stook. He and his band The Jukes are currently wrapping up their sophmore effort after the amazing debut "The Soundtrack to My Minneapolis." Stook will be playing tonight at the last Hoot of the season down at Java Jacks in South Minneapolis. It shouldn't be missed.
What’s your favorite Journey song?
I worked at a gas station in high school with a guy named Scott who claimed to be the biggest Steve Perry/Journey fan that ever was. One day he borrowed 5 bucks from me because he was broke on account of his paycheck was being garnished. Apparently he became addicted to some psychic friends 900 number. Last I heard he was going to seminary. His fave Journey song was "Open Arms," so in honor of Scott I will have to say "Open Arms."
