Journey - Only The Young

Recommended Posts


The first person to hear this song before its release was a small boy (Kenny Sykaluk) with cancer on his deathbed. He absolutely loved Journey and his mom wrote a letter to the band. They came to the hospital and played the first recording for him and it made his day. He died the next day. The members of Journey were deeply affected by the experience and still refer to this song as "his"

They brought him a walkman and tapes and other stuff. when they left Steve fell apart seeing the boys pain and condition. sadly the kid died the next day of cystic fibrosis. he had the walkman on, earphones on and this song was playing. he died listening to this song............................................... :'(

Wow, sad story, but happy at the same time since the boy could have a dream came true

Back when this was written, the young were free. Nowadays things are different. The young really aren't free to do anything because they "aren't old enough" and everything is "too dangerous". It's a shame. It really really is.

I got a message from his older brother to remove the photos we had of Journey with Kenny and I complied.

The family made a statement at some point:

I then I see someone stating they are Andrew his brother on YouTube thanking others for sharing the same story?

Confusing to say the least:

One of the stories that my mind just made up is that they are evaluating from where they can get fame and $$$. I've heard that the more people watch a video at Youtube the most chances are to get some $$$ cents. And they found that here there is no pisto 😂😂😂
