The members of Journey are hoping that if they’re inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, current singer Arnel Pineda will be able to go in with them.

Journey received its first Rock Hall nomination earlier this month, and Pineda — the Filipino native who’s been fronting the group since 2007 — was not on the list of members getting a nod (nor was original drummer Aynsley Dunbar, who played on Journey’s first four albums).

“That’s wrong, y’know?” keyboardist-guitarist Jonathan Cain tells Billboard. “I don’t think it’s fair. There is no Journey without Arnel right now. He certainly has learned his stripes. He’s been with us longer than any lead singer has consecutively stayed in the band. He’s given us 10 years straight, not running off or doing this, doing that, just being The Guy. So that’s worth something.”
