Lamont's Music Notes For March 23rd

March 23rd, 1980 - Journey

On March 23rd, 1980, Journey released their sixth album Departure, and it topped off at #8 on Billboard’s album chart. The album’s success was fueled by the success of the single "Any Way You Want It" and the saucy “Walks Like a Lady”.

The album would mark the last full time studio album appearance of founding member Gregg Rolie. Rolie had become tired of life on the road and decided to leave the band after helping hand-pick his replacement, Jonathan Cain, then of  “The Babys”.

I’m going to take you to the “way-back machine” and return to 1980 with Journey’s video for "Any Way You Want It"
