Randy Jackson is back to his rock band roots.
On Saturday, Journey guitarist Neal Schon announced the new lineup of band members (following the exit of bassist Ross Valory and drummer Steve Smith), including the former American Idol judge, 63, as the new bassist.
Jackson was temporarily part of the “Any Way You Want It” band back in the 1980s.
“Ok Friends word is out! @randyjackson RJ the Big Dawg is our new Bass player again 💪🏾🕶,” Schon, 66, wrote on Instagram, adding in another post, “The King is back 💪🏾🕶 @randyjackson 🔥🔥.”
Schon, on Twitter, also referred to Journey as an “ever-changing unstoppable force,” stating that the group is entering “a completely new chapter for us and can’t wait to get to it!”
