Gregg Rolie (born June 17, 1947 in Seattle, Washington) is an American keyboardist, organist, and singer, who is one of the founding members of the bands Santana, The Storm, Abraxas Pool and Journey, for whom he was the original lead singer. He currently performs with his Gregg Rolie Band.
Rolie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Santana. By the time 1988's Gringo rolled around, Journey had all but called it a day (until their reunion a decade or so later) and Gregg Rolie was going in a decidedly different direction than his tenure in either Journey or Santana. As "The Hands of Time" immediately makes evident, Rolie was shooting for the top of the pop charts, falling somewhere between Daryl Hall's "Dreamtime" and Don Johnson's "Heartbeat" on the musical landscape. Guest appearances from Carlos Santana and Neal Schon. The AOR Heaven Classix reissue of the “Gringo” release are digitally remastered by Chris Lyne and feature liner notes by Dave Reynolds. The album are available via www.aorheaven.com, selected retailers and Cargo in the UK.
