About Those Journey / Steve Perry Rumors

03:01 PM Friday 11/12/10 |   |

Did you hear about Steve Perry telling his former Journey mates that he wants to rejoin the band? Well…

Several music blogs ran with an item today claiming Perry had asked Journey for his old job back. Apparently the singer loved leading San Francisco Giants fans in a rendition of “Don’t Stop Believing” during the National League playoffs soooo much that he’d like to do it full time.

The report may have originated with London’s Daily Star which ran a short piece saying Perry had asked to rejoin the band after seeing “Don’t Stop Believing” performed by cast members on the hit TV show “Glee.” The item even had a quote from Journey guitarist Neil Schon – “He seems to be enjoying the spotlight a little too much. The fact is he’s no longer the lead singer. He walked out.”

But while Schon’s response in the Daily Star seems to put the kibosh on Perry ever rejoining the band, it still doesn’t answer the real question – Did Perry even ask the band about it?

We don’t know, either. But a Journey representative, after pointing out the band already has a singer – Arnel Pineda – reminded us about the band’s upcoming album scheduled for a 2011 release as well as plans for a world tour, then asked, “Where does this stuff come from?”

Where, indeed?

    Steve Perry is the only one who can sing the material he wrote and/or performed with Journey and make it believable.  Arnel does a good impersonalization of Steve Perry, but you can tell the difference.  Just as there are Elvis impersonators out there that can sound close, no one is exactly the same.  Whether Steve rejoins Journey or not, he can do what he wants.  He will always have a loyal fan base ready to buy tickets to see him perform.  He sure has one in this old time Journey/Perry fan.  I've seen Journey with Perry and with the other two who have tried to replaced him (yes, there have been two since Perry left), Journey is just not the same without him.  They are still good, but they don't have the "Fire" they had with Perry.  It was sad that he left the band and I know they had to move on, but sometimes things do come full circle.  Maybe, just maybe we might see a reunion, even if it is just cameos.

    I think it would be the comeback of all time if Steve Perry once again put a band together.  I did want him to reunite with Journey but reading all of Neal Shon's comments, I hope Steve Perry never sings front for Neal again.  I only wish Steve would show Neal who was the most memorable  member of Journey.  There are so many good guitar players out there but only one Steve Perry.

    There is no Journey without Steve Perry.  What a shame!  I would give my left arm to see them in concert.

    I've seen Journey in Concert WITH Steve Perry 8 times, without Steve Perry twice, and Steve Perry without the band once.  It ONLY works when Steve Perry is with the band.  Steve Perry doing the solo tour DOES NOT WORK when you try to get somebody to fill in for Neal Schon.  Neal Schon impersonators are worse than Perry impersonators.  Trust me.  It is hard to enjoy the music when the music is done poorly.  It is very hard for people to run those licks the way that Neal can.  The only way this works is if Perry gets back with the band.  So many people would pay big bucks to see that!

    I know both these old boys well. They need to put the past in the past and look at the future of making big money. Its cost both of them a fortune not to work together. Jumping over dollars to pick up pennies . If  they dont get together for themselves , they will do it for the future sake of the family. Theres to much demand and money for Steve and Schon to do this. They both have families and they can assure their futures for generations to come by striking a deal. Schon wont have a problem doing it. Steve is ready to put the past in the past. All they have to do is talk to each other rather than talk about the past. Its time boys... Just do it..... and Do it for your families.......BIG  BIG MONEY......

    There are very few bands I have been dedicated to but I have been a "JOURNEY" fan for years.The first concert I went to was the" JOURNEY-ESCAPE"tour at CAPE COD,MASS.I have also seen the "FRONTIERS","RAISED ON RADIO" and "ARRIVAL". I have also seen them with Steve Augeri,which was alright and I saw them with Arnel(the biggest disappointment that I have ever heard!!) I have the utmost respect for NEAL SCHON,he is an awesome guitarist, I wish I could play as well as he does, but they really should put their differences aside and reunite with STEVE PERRY and bring back the music.STEVE PERRY brought "JOURNEY"to the mainstream and I don't see them there with any other singer.The best lineup by far is "STEVE PERRY,NEAL SCHON,JONATHAN CAIN,STEVE SMITH and ROSS VALORY"no disrespect to DEAN because he is a talented drummer and singer and no offense to you NEAL and again with the utmost respect because you are someone that I idolize due to your talent, but put the ego aside and make ammends with STEVE PERRY and bring back the "MusicMachine" that is "THE JOURNEY". I wish could play guitar half as good as NEAL and I have a good voice but I'm no STEVE PERRY so try to talk it out bring back the 2 artist that I admire and respect the most!!!

    Steve Perry isn't what Steve Perry used to be. This isn't '79 or '82 or any Steve Perry anyone remembers. Journey is better off without him, he couldn't handle the Journey material now anyway, so what's the big deal if Journey has a different singer?

    Anyone that is a REAL fan knows that Steve Perry would NEVER, EVER ask Neal Schon to come back to Journey.  He wouldn't  go back if they asked HIM!!!  In the late 90s when the song " When You Love A Woman" was nominated for a Grammy, before they could go on tour Steve needed a hip replacement and they wouldn't wait on him to research his options, have the surgery and recuperate. They kept insisting he have the operation. Steve thought it was his personal decision, NOT a group decision.  We the TRUE FANS would of Patiently waited for THE VOICE to return. We would rather hear quality and originality  rather than Karaoke.

    Wah, Wah, Wah!  to Neal Schon who honestly  is an underrated guitarist but did not wan't Steve Perry in the band from the beginning. The band is a joke. Neal still keeps it rolling. Just pull the plug already, The band died when Steve Perry left. I wouldn't pay a dime to see them now. Neal it's time to quit or change the name of the band. I hope Steve forms his own band and goes back on tour. He does not need Neal Schon.

    forgot to say that I saw Steve Perry's tour in, what was it, '95?  He was great - he doesn't need Journey.
