26 February 1950, Chicago, Illinois, USA. Although not an original member of Journey, keyboard player Cain was present for the soft rock band’s most commercially successful period, from the early to mid-80s. Cain began learning the accordion at the age of eight, and later the piano as a teenager. During the 70s, he relocated to Los Angeles’ Laurel Canyon, and shortly thereafter, signed with Bearsville Records as a solo artist, which led to an overlooked debut, Windy City Breakdown, in 1977. Cain then joined the UK power pop outfit the Babys in 1978, playing on Union Jacks and On The Edge. After the demise of the Babys, Cain was recruited by Journey as a replacement for founding member Gregg Rolie. A run of hit albums and singles followed, many of which Cain co-penned, including ‘Who’s Crying Now’, ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’, ‘Faithfully’ and the quintessential power ballad, ‘Open Arms’.
