Jonathan Cain was best known for his work with the band The Babies before joining Journey in 1980.

The single "Don't Stop Believin'" is one of the Journey's biggest hits, becoming the top selling song in iTunes history in 2009, amongst songs not released in the 21st century. Jonathan Cain also wrote the classic Journey ballad "Faithfully". Other success for Cain came with the band Bad English in the 80's which featured his former Baby's bandmates John Waite (vocals), Ricky Phillips (bass), and Journey bandmate Neal Schon on guitar.
