Timeline of The Life of Jonathan Cain
He has received two BMI songwriter awards, both for songs co-written with Steve Perry, “Open Arms” and “Who’s Crying Now”. The Journey song, “When You Love a Woman”, which he co-wrote with Perry and Schon, was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1997.
In 1996, the Journey lineup from the album Escape was reunited. They reformed and recorded the album Trial by Fire. Steve Perry then left the band again in 1998, after suffering a hip injury, while hiking in Hawaii, that required surgery. The journey has continued on with three subsequent lead singers, Steve Augeri from 1998 to 2006, Jeff Scott Soto from 2006 to 2007, and Arnel Pineda from 2007 to the present.
Cain reunited with former Baby’s bandmates John Waite and Ricky Phillips, fellow Journey bandmate Neal Schon, and future Journey drummer Deen Castronovo to form the band Bad English. The band released two albums before disbanding in the early 1990s.
In 1989, he married his second wife, Elizabeth Yvette Fullerton, with whom he has three children: Madison (1993) and twins Liza and Weston (1996). He and Elizabeth divorced at the end of 2014.
Cain has married three times. His first wife was singer Tané McClure for whom he wrote the 1983 hit song “Faithfully”.
Cain is known to perform a piano solo at every Journey concert, usually right before the band performs “Open Arms.” He started this tradition when he first joined the band in 1980.
In 1976, Cain released his first record as the Jonathan Cain Band, Windy City Breakdown, on Bearsville Records. In 1979, he joined The Babys, appearing on their albums Union Jacks and On the Edge. In 1980, Cain left The Babys to join the rock band Journey, taking Gregg Rolie’s place on keyboards. Cain aided Journey’s rise to the top of the charts with his first collaborations on the album Escape, composing and playing the piano on songs such as “Don’t Stop Believin'”, described by AllMusic as “one of the best opening keyboard riffs in rock”. Perhaps his most notable contribution was as the sole author of the Journey ballad “Faithfully”, a song about life on the road while in a band. Cain would go on to appear on at least 13 other Journey albums and compilations.
Cain was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Leonard and Nancy Friga, who were Italian. At the age of eight, Cain began accordion lessons, and by the time he was in his teens, he was playing accordion and piano at parties and in clubs. He also plays guitar, bass, and harmonica. Cain was a survivor of the Our Lady of the Angels school fire of 1958, in which 92 students and 3 nuns died. In 1968 Cain graduated from East Leyden High School in the Chicago suburb of Franklin Park, Illinois, and later attended the Chicago Conservatory of Music before moving to Nashville, Tennessee, and eventually to Los Angeles, California.
Jonathan Leonard Friga (born February 26, 1950), known professionally as Jonathan Cain, is an American musician, singer, and songwriter best known as the keyboardist for Journey. He has also worked with The Babys and Bad English. Cain was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Journey on April 7, 2017.
