Media sources, including ARTISTdirect, were abuzz with rumors that prodigal son Steve Perry would possibly rejoin Journey in the wake of the band's resurgent popularity thanks to the usage of "Don't Stop Believin'" in The Sopranos and Glee. But those rumors are just that. Perry is not aiming to rejoin the band that he split from rather acrimoniously.
Perry's own spokesperson refuted theDaily Star reports, saying, "It's not true. The story came from London, the home of tabloids – they make up stories every day. Steve is enjoying his retirement."
Retirement? Stevie, baby! That voice is too beautiful to be languishing in retirement. You belong with your Journey compadres, singing "Wheel in the Sky," "Anyway You Want It," "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'," "Stone in Love" and "Escape." I even love "Oh Sherrie" from your solo days.
Steve was last seen on the big video screen singing along to Journey songs during the San Francisco Giants baseball club's World Series run.
Growing up, the Per was my favorite singer. Srsly.
Who wants to join me in starting a letter-writing campaign to bring Steve Perry back to Journey?
