The Police can reunite because Sting can still sing the classics, but Steve could not sing the classic Journey songs at the same notes as what they were before. Anyone who is stucked with Perry has just to listen him on the old classic vinyl or cd not live. Come on now, the guy'd vox is damaged and could not sing those classics even he will stand on a 16-foot ladder--simple Steve cannot reach the high pitch classics no more. Have mercy, let Steve rest. He is almost 60 years old, do not force the guy.
Hey journeytotheend, Please stop smoking the wackyweed! Randy Jackson said and I quote! Steve Perry has still got that golden voice and he sounds as great as ever! Personally I loved Perry sultry deeper voice on alot of the albums. Maybe he cant reach the super high opera notes but that voice has never lost that superhouse power that no other singer has ever come close too! Maybe he still can reach it! Remember the rest of journey are in their 60's as well and they still sing pretty damn well so buddy age has nothing to do with it! Rock on Steve !!!

Cutlets29.....and I guess YOU have heard him sing live? If you can't back up your comments then be careful what you say about one of the most awesome voices ever in the music industry.
Actually Steve sounds just as awesome not hitting the high notes...the man is HOT no matter what he sings.....so again I ask you, have YOU heard Steve sing live to back up what you are saying? If so, fill us in on it.
Steve will FOREVER be one of the greatest voices that has ever been heard....just facts my friend !

Love Steve Perry for many reasons. First for giving the world a lot of beautiful music. 2nd for the gorgeous man he is. 3rd for doing 2 solo albums(cd) 4th for showing a lot of class. 5 th for not writting a book like HH and Neil Daniels did. I could go on and on. Finally, I love Steve Perry and all that he is to music and my world. Perryon 2011 and beyond

There always are reasons that this splitting up has to transpire and we know for sure what they really are. Definitely, Steve's accomplishments could never be equaled by anybody else not even Arnel himself-but this dude from the Philippines is there not to flaunt but to fill the gap that may sure end up Journey's existence had there never been one so close to Perry's PERRYPHERALS. Perry though will always be the priceless of gems to his fans,including my very self, no longer want his infinity worn by the band. So good to be true we have one Arnel Peneda outspokenly doing good in the field and one indeed qualified, if there ain't nobody around to, perpetuate JOURNEY'S veracity.

"the voice" has changed yes, he is getting older, and yes, cannot do tenor anymore, but he still has a great voice and Neal is an idiot, even
Randy Jackson said so....Steve has always had a husky voice! he went through hell and back and the new journey is a tribute band!

<quoted text> Hi Karen, I agree! That is not the reason Perry does not keep in touch with the band because he fears people will think hes rejoining. He does not keep in touch because Neal and Caine are both DICKS! In 87 When he left Journey it was for many reasons. He was so burnt out,death of his mother, and the breakup of long time girlfriend Sherry. He also wrote the song Be Good To Yourself because that is what he needed to do. When he left he did not listen to music for a few years just trying to get himself together. Neal didnt give a shit all he cared about was touring,money, and staying famous![lets not forget alimony for his ex wives and kids]! Touring for 10 years just took its toll on Perry! When they did get back for the Trial By Fire album in 96 Perry was getting ready for the tour by hiking in Hawaii where he damaged his hip. Perry needed a hip replacement so the tour was put on hold. Perry was nervous so after a year of putting it off and ofcourse Neal and Caine not understanding they parted again. Neal is pretty pissed off because everytime they tour and sing Perry,Caine, songs Perry gets a nice chunk of the profits as he should. In my heart there was,is only one frontman for Journey and that is the brillant Mr Steven Ray Perry. Im not crazy about Arnel but I dont wish him bad luck either. The day Perry was gone Journey died for me. When Perry opens his mouth and that beautiful,powerhouse,voice starts to sing my whole being is put into a paralizing trance that I never want to come out of. Sorry Arnel, Neal,Caine,Ross,and Dean but the day perry left the chemistry did too!!! I love you Perry and you will never be replaced in my heart!!!
YOU SAID IT ALL MY FRIEND! You can heart it in his interviews too how discouraged he was with the hip replacement and death and his girlfriends that screw him over.. love ya steve!

Steve Perry felt betrayed by his band members,when they tried to force him into doing his hip replacement immeditly so they could go on the road.Steve needed time to consider the surgey and it's outcome. Being a Nurse and knwning the complacations of a hip replacement can be a very diffcult decision to make. I would never allow anyone to make any choices for me when it came to my health.Besides you would not let anyone take a knife to you on the street, why would you let someone with a lisence do it' hummmm
exactly, and you can see it now in the way he walks.. health care myself.. neal is an idiot!

I never liked Steve Perry and thought he ruined Journey. They were so good before Steve Perry! Gregg Rolie was a much better singer.

Columbia was going to DROP Journey if they didn't find a singer that could get them on the radio, because their album sales were abysmal. If Perry hadn't joined, Journey would have faded into oblivion. The rest of the band would have had to break up, reform a new band, or join other bands separately. Even Neil admits if Journey didn't work out, he'd be fixing motorcycles. Nobody cares about pre-Perry Journey except for a few local yokels 40 years ago.....
