JOURNEY: How Many Ways Can Perry Say No?
Steve Perry’s having to deny all the reports that he’s rejoining Journey is becoming as ridiculous as all the Pink Floyd reunion stories.
He has once again addressed the latest rumors, saying, “There is no [plan for a] reunion.” And when asked about current singer Arnel Pineda’s statement that Perry could have his old job back, he says, “I don’t know who or what would make Arnel want to say such a thing. He’s their lead singer and I wish him all the best.”
However, we may be seeing more of Perry — he says his recent surprise performances with The Eels made him realize how much he missed performing. “I had been away from live performing for a long time. Walking out on that stage was like having sex for the first time in 20 years. I didn’t have a lot of stamina or restraint…but it still felt really AMAZING!… I think I will start rehearsing at those live levels to blow the rust off these old pipes. That’s my plan. After that is done, I’m sure more thoughts and ideas will appear.”
