Removed the "One Hit Wonder" trope from the page. As stated by the trope, "An artist primarily known for one hit song. If they're lucky, their next single may chart as well, but despite the ubiquitous fame of their number one hit, they never really take off."

Journey took off well before "Don't Stop Believin'" and had hits before and after; all of their albums from Infinity to Raised on Radio hit platinum, and they were a massive touring band from about Next onward. Just because a younger generation of listeners isn't familiar with an older band's catalog does NOT make that band a one-hit wonder. A simple glance thru the page disproves the One Hit Wonder trope.

Edited the Faceof The Band section. Prior writer stated that the lead singer after Steve Perry "didn't last long". Given that the writer didn't bother mentioning the new lead by name, and knowing what Hate Dumb, Hate Dom, and Internet Backdraft existed (and still exists) when Steve Augeri came onboard, it sounds like it came from Perry's Fan Dumb. Steve Augeri was with Journey eight years — hardly a "didn't last long", considering Perry's active years with the band were 1977 - 1986 (9 years), with another year for the Trial By Fire album in 1996.
