Steve Perry Is Recording Again, Expect New Album In Late 2009

In a recent interview for Mix Magazine in January 2009, session drummer Russ Miller told the mag he was recording for Steve Perry.

Russ - "I've done [the movies] Chicken Little, Resident Evil Apocalypse, Silent Hill and Lakeview Terrace, where I'm doing all of the drums and percussion here. Right now I'm working on Steve Perry's album. It's not even a question anymore; everybody comes here. I'll go out on the road and come back, and there will be sessions waiting to happen, and I try to turn them around in a timely manner."

You walked up to me, I'll never forget But that was a lifetime ago We shared precious moments I'll never regret But today the heartache still grows Decades and oceans have now come between The hopes of reliving the joy you brought me Yet I will remain here awaiting life's trial And there, as it's ending... I'll think of you and smile

When the singer's gone, let the song go on, It's a fine line between the darkness and the dawn, they say in the darkest night there's a light beyond...but the ending always comes at last, endings always come too fast, they come too fast. but they pass to slow, I love you and that's all I know. lyrics from the song "All I Know" performed by Art Garfunkel, I feel as if this ending is killing me! I truly miss S.P.

Hey Joe your back did you miss us ? LOL ya I'm still here.

Joe
I'm back as promised. i know you all have been waiting eagerly. So, how is everyone enjoying the new Steve Perry Album? I think it rocks. 50 new songs, wow. What a joke. Same BS year after year. Please refer to the title of this original Article and compare it to todays date. Keep going on faithfully though everyone. I see 30 year is still spouting her rhetoric. Wow Bill, what a hot little romance you have going with Wahwah. LOL. Did you get her number yet? See you all next year when I will give you a song by song analysis of the new album.

wahwah
Hey Mr. Bill, Seems a bit strange "We both know we've been here before, we know what can happen" while "living up the same old moment, knowing we'd be better off instead, if we say what we need to say" " I told you that we could fly, cause we all have wings, but some of us don't know why." "I can't tell you why, but, It seems when I'm feeling blue, all I have to do is walk the streets in that great street carnival and I begin to wonder, have I been hypnotized, mesmerized, by what my eyes have seen. And when the mornin' comes I'm right back where I started again...Oh gee, anyway, Be good to yourself Mr. Bill.

wahwah
Mr. Bill, If I could save time in a bottle, the first thing that I'd like to do is to get a face lift to preserve my youthful appearance as I'd be spending much time reliving my younger days. Hmmm...Just think, saving time in a bottle could be the answer to creation of the perfect human. Gee, so much for that! I am sure if it were possible to save time in a bottle, many of us would have never been born. Our ancestors may have decided the idea of reinventing themselves over and over was simply to much fun, as a result, they may have opted out of child rearing. LOL Till forever, on it goes, through the circle fast and slow, I know, it can't stop I wonder, or could it be that can't stop wondering? Still not sure...Anyway,not to worry, I have my insanity under control once again. Oops! It seems I have spoken too soon, I can hear the wheel in the sky turning again. Oh, Noooooo!!! I'm feeling that feeling again, what's it mean? I feel the earth move under my feet...Guess I stood up too fast, it was only a head rush...O.K. so Mr. Bill, while you were out there runnin" alone, did you happen to see the lonely man there on the corner? Was he really waiting for something to show? If so, could you tell me what it was?

Bill
Hey Wahwah, I don't mind running alone. At least not... until there was you.

wahwah
Watch as the moonlight chases the sun, stars decorating the dark skies above, Listen as ocean is calling the breeze, see the whispering angel, there on her knees, Begging for mercy she cries in the night, come back my love and turn darkness to light, watch as she waits there, faithfully praying, time marches forward, her longing remaining, Then suddenly day break, the sunlight explodes, the eyes of an angel beholding a rose, when reaching her finally, he's taken her hand. guiding her on to some far away land, where love saved a space for their young hearts to rest, As age had befallen following time's brutal test. Gee, They say your as young as you feel, and I agree with Steve "don't stop believing", if it's in your heart, it's there for a reason... Although, it may not be the reason we think, we should keep in mind, the house of love holds no vacancies for the selfish soul. Love comes and love goes, if you're willing to let it. Even if love has gone separate ways, it can still reach worlds apart from the flesh it dwells in. Oh well, anyway, I'd like to Say Happy Birthday to Steve Perry and Thanks to him for all his inspiring words of beauty. His words were contagious, they've opened my heart, to new ways of loving and thus now impart.

Bill
Sorry 30 year,for whatever reason I always thought you were a guy. So is 10 Year your kid?

30 year perry fan
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEVE PERRY!!!!!!!! Your fans still love you!!

30 year Perry fan
Bill you say i need anger management but i am sure that any mother would protect their children in the same manner. and i do believe that your not seeing that i am the only one who has posted as 30 year on here so it was directed to me . And if, that was my child i would have said the same thing. No i do not take any meds none are needed i am a mom who loves her children and thats the bottom line. And to add im not a nurse. I have a more important degree then that. Take care bill now maybe you understand a bit better.

wahwah
Ooooh, Nooo, Mr. Bill, I just had another thought... Oh, gee, I've forgotten already! Oh yea, I was thinking that you probably thought I was thinking about what everyone else thinks I'm thinking when they think I'm crazy, but no, instead I don't think I should try and understand what they were thinking when they thought that I was thinking at all... In reality, it doesn't matter what they think of my thoughts, nor do I think they would care what I'm thinking at the moment. So having said that, what are your thoughts on the subject and do you think I should think it through before I go thinking again? Oh well, as for now I think I'll go listen to the very best of Steve Perry and think about something else!

wahwah
Some would say I'm middle aged, some would say I'm old, Doesn't matter anyway when one's heart is made of gold.

Bill
Wahwah, how old are you sweetie?

Bill
Hey 30 Year. It was a joke about another posters name being similar to yours. It had nothing to do with your child, unless 10 year really is your child. Try some anger management classes and double up on your meds nursey.

30 year Perry Fan
For your 411 Bill DON"T even talk about my child you useless piece of human waste .All was fun and games b4 .but now you sad excuse for a human have gone way beyond the boundries. You must have no life to talk that way about children. And anyone that says hurtfull things about any child is a huge seroious LOSER!!! you dont know me or my children so keep your ugly hole shut and move on. To all the perry fans out there excuse me but this guy is way out of line. Perry on Fans!!!

wahwah
Oh, no, Mr. Bill, I forgot to include something in my last post. I do hope you can overlook my error. As Green Day says, It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right, I hope you had the time of your life. And as Steve Perry said, should have told you then, I knew, should've told you right from the start, O.K, so, here it is. I missed you too Mr. Bill. I can't tell you why, but the words get in the way sometimes, making it difficult to decide where do we go from here? What? Anyway, after having said that, Oz never did give nothin' to the tin man that he didn't already have. I know Mr. Bill, You're probably thinking, that in America, sometimes late when things are real and people share the gift of gab between themselves, some are quick to forget just what it was they were gabbing about in the first place. Try not to worry, it's just an ordinary thing. So Anyway, I hope you have an exciting week.

wahwah
Oh Mr.Bill, I'll forgive you for being away for far too long, but you know, you know, you know, give anything, but I won't give up. Some break the rules and live to count the cost, as for me, Just tryin' to give myself a little bit of fun. I ain't talkin' no big deals, I ain't made no plans myself...What about you? Living in two different worlds can be a bit challenging at times, so the next time your feeling that feelin' again, check the peephole on the door before you begin to let anyone in. If it appears to be someone there ready to share, check for I.D. first. It's difficult to say who's, who these days... Oh well, anyway...Only 11 more days before Steve celebrates his 62 birthday. They say he's supposed to do a Q & A session with fan asylum again this year. I 'll be scanning the pages for that. I do hope he's made some progress in the recording of his new songs. In December, Steve himself said he is working on it. Would love to hear something new from him soon! As for you Mr. Bill, don't be a stranger even when things do get strange.

Bill
Hi Wahwah. Happy New Year to you! I missed your positive touch.

wahwah
Hello Mr. Bill, Hope you had a nice holiday season. I've been away for a spell, speaking of which or is it witch??? Anyway, things got a bit crazy when i accidentally added the hair of the dog in the cauldron to brew instead of the toe of a frog. What must I have been thinking??? Oh well, it was just as smooth the second time around an the brew seemed to livin' up the new years party. I put on my Steve Perry music and before you know it, I was dancin' with myself. Oh, no, wait a minute, that was somebody else. Anyhow, that was some party! What's up with you?

Bill
I'm starting to realize that 10 year must be 30 year pervs illegitimate child. LOL.

Bill
Where are you my sweet Wahwah.

30 year Perry fan
MERRY CHRISTMAS MR PERRY! And to All his fans!

10 year perry fan
Yeah bill i really missed you...NOT!!!! Oh by the way you must miss 30 year perry fan. You should shes awsome. Also a question for you Bill why did you come back anyway?

Bill
Hey 10 Year. I decided to come back because you missed me. You go Wahwah. I missed ya. Keep fighting. Dont take any crap from these guys. Where has 30 Year Perv been I wonder. Off cleaning stool I suppose. Hopefully Joe will come back on March 30. LOL.

10 year perry fan
Hey just to say, who ever writes negative comments about Steve Perry why are you hanging out on a steve perry fan site? And by the way its been 2 months since bill has posted lol maybe joe took him away with him.

They posted a face to face interview video today at Steve Perry online. Great to see Steve so Happy! Videos of him enjoying the Giants victory parade also.

Giants made a comeback over fifty years later...Hmm, I wonder who's crying now? Could it be the Texas Rangers? Don't get me wrong, there was great effort from both teams, but as they say everything is big in Texas, and when big ego's get squashed, you know thats got to hurt! Sorry Rangers, it was exciting watching the playoffs but, for me the most exciting was seeing the Giants win it...As for all you Steve Perry fans, "Don't Stop Believing", "I Believe" he will have a new release soon.

Yippee!!! Now that's the kind of news that makes me dance around the room. Yeah, Stevie!

In Steve's interview with knbr this month, he says he is currently working at recording some of his new material. Still no word on when it will be finished. I am so happy to hear he's interested again. I too must say: "Hooray For Steve!" I can't wait to hear more of that amazing voice.

JT
Hooray!!!! I love Steve Perry!!!!

Me
I simply love Steve Perry. He has been my ALL TIME favorite since 1978. I'll be first in line to buy anything he wants to release, and will travel ANYWHERE to hear him sing.

Hey everyone! They'll be interviewing Steve Perry Friday October 7th at 8:00am pacific time...It's all about the Giants, but maybe they'll ask him about his music as well. You can listen online at KNBR sports radio.

Wahwah
Dearest T.C. ??? I believe it is you that has leaped from reality into the tangent. You continue to speak Of Steve Perry as if you know all of the facts. I would hope for your sake that someday you may learn not to delude yourself by believing everything you hear or read about someone else. So, might I ask T.C., why you insist on claiming that Steve has lost his voice? Do You know him personally? Did you listen to his February 2010 interviews? Both of them ? Sorry T.C., no matter what you say, I won't stop believing in Steve Perry!!! I never claimed he was a GOD, In fact you wrote that so you must have been thinking it yourself. So what's the real problem here T.C.??? Are you angry because he gets so much attention??? Get over yourself!!! I, just as you, have the absolute right to state my views. Although it doesn't mean I will surrender to a view that is taken from gossip pages and rumors. I take what I hear first hand and simply, hope, wait and see. As I said before, his future,is his business. He only stated that he would like to record some of his unpublished material. Whether he decides to or not, is yet to be seen. T.C., Unless, you have ever been a vocalist yourself how could you know squat about it. Many vocalist simply stop singing for a while, and yes, lose range, But with a bit of hard work and dedication that comes from the real desire for accomplishment, they can rebuild their range, regaining the same qualities as before. So, unless you've ever been there, done that, I don't care to hear your claim about Steve's voice. Oh, BTW, Miracles do happen! Do I think he's God? Nope,I never said that, In fact, it was you who stated that! But do I believe in him? Abso-friggin-lutely! I do hope you have someone who believes in you... Nothing you or anyone else can say would change my mind about Steve Perry! Even if someday he decides to become a sales person in a nursing facility selling skateboards to seniors... I'd still believe in the man! So, Keep believing in yourself, someday you may find it entertaining to wake up and face the real you only to realize how foolish you've been, like it or not, it happens...The only real point you made is that NONE of us are perfect, doesn't mean we should give up and become complete monsters now, does it??? I believe the world has more than enough of it's share of monsters, in other words, they are no longer unique nor interesting.... I would hope that someday, we can all set aside differences, long enough to get down to the truth instead of believing the gossip and internet rumors and even some media distortion that hides what is real. If you've never put yourself in someone else's shoes before, you may want to try it before you find yourself standing in them for real. In short, it is not a good idea to judge others even if you don't understand them, as one day others may not be so understanding of you. People and Things nor circumstances are not always as they appear, But, Sometimes we as humans seem to take everything for granted. Just look at what it's gotten us! If you can't see it, it's O.K. not all of us were put here for the same reasons. I happen to be a strong believer in the faith of human kind, although, I do realize I may not live to see the next time the world makes the that inevitable, ultimate revolution, in which society as we know it, will make an about face turn heading back to the basis for our existence. But even so, I don't stop believing that the truth, slowly but surely will prevail. Steve Perry is human just as you said. I do believe what he said in February 2010 interview. He did not say he will in fact, he only said "He is considering" You can't fault me for holding out hope after hearing that statement coming straight from The Voice's mouth! Since I don't believe I'll be around for the after math of what the planet has in store. I do at least, hold on to my hope of a new release from the man. I also realize I may not live to see that, but even still, within me Somewhere there's hope...And let me say, I do have many! We can't control what others do, we can only hope they will or will not do whatever it may be we are hoping to see them do, or praying that they don't. In any case, I hope, I hope, I hope, I hope, Steve Perry has a new release before I am gone...Whenever that is! If you read this the way it is intended T.C. you may find I am very well adjusted to the realities in life. So, if you choose to pass Judgment, you may desire to tackle the real monsters in society instead of leaping to the defensive about subjects you are not entirely acquainted with...(Caution! The above literature is subject to personal interpretation and may very well be taken entirely out of context by reader, whereas, many of us as humans are known to twist the intended words of others. Use extreme care by reading between the lines as well...) Sometimes things look differently when you've taken time to think about them, then again, I guess that depends on who we allow to do the thinking for us...Gossip and rumors or knowledge of fact?

Bobby
Yeah, T.C. I am with you. I love his work, too, but I don't think he's got it anymore. Think about it - he's one of the only basically active retired singers out there. Aretha, Steven Tyler, Jagger, Rod, Paul M. and many others are still doing it, but they probably couldn't even touch singing Steve's stuff every nite. Steve Augeri is a sad example of how tough it is. Difficult songs to sing, for sure.

T.C.
Wahwah -- wow! Going for a doctorate in theology? You're jumpier than a box of frogs! Lighten up and bring your space orbiter back to the launching pad, please. Drop the tangent and check my point. SP is a human like anyone else. He's not God. Nobody is. You think he is. He's got fallacies just like all of us, and a little criticism is allowed in the USA - esp. since he's in the spotlight and a celebrity, like it or not. Hence, the purpose of this board and the freedoms we possess. Now, he's not perfect. Don't forget - he fired Ross & Smitty for his own ego/benefit (something he admitted himself) - this means, they lost their jobs, royalty work on future work and had to find other ways to support their families - it sucked bad, ok? Broke up the essential Journey lineup by bringing in session guys he could employ for less. He also had ego clashes with the group, would travel separately, leave after some shows and not sign autographs back in the day, etc., so he's not a saint. Again, nobody is. You think he is. He did some cruddy things just like we all do sometimes, so he's not without reproach. The flip side is he's a great singer (the BEST, IMO), fantastic producer/composer and has done many wonderful things for fans and organizations. Again, good/bad like all of us. I'm just stating my opinion on the next album from him. I say it's a pipe dream. A session drummer makes a comment "right now I'm working on the next SP album" and everyone takes it as gospel. It could be a demo, a backing vocal or a CD that will never come to light. I don't think he's got the pipes and I think he knows it - which is fine - I enjoy his work just like anyone on these boards, but get a reality check, Wahwah. I was just stating that I don't see a new album in the future. You mentioned that he hasn't owed anything to his true fans -- TRUE -- in fact, he has no website, blog or offered much comment on any activity other than a small paragraph every January expressing his b-day thanks to the fans. That's it, and that's cool. He's a private cat. He's enjoying his retirement and his privacy. He deserved it and I can get behind that - cool. But he's a human just like all of us. He lost his voice and he doesn't want to put himself out there to be embarrassed - otherwise, the old SP of '78-84 would be dying to sing at every possible moment. A LOT. We all know that. But that's fine - I respect him for not being an old fart trying to be 35 again if he doesn't have it. His voice changed and his body of work was so difficult to sing in the first place, that it's almost impossible to do night after night after night. I mean, hey - I've been waiting like everyone else, but after such a long drought, you start to realize it gets tougher each year that goes by. So Wahwah, come back down to planet Earth and join us, will ya'?

Wahwah
Dear T.C., It seems that some of you feel empowered by mere speculation of Steve Perry's personal life. Being a vocalist, I do happen to know that years of singing can only make vocals that much stronger, especially when you give a rest. BURN OUT is also very common, especially when you wake up to find you have lost the most important people in your life as you have been out trying to please the masses, and even some of which have no concern about your personal well being whatsoever. In life we all have our own paths, who is anyone to say what Steve will or will not do before he leaves the planet. I don't know if you have noticed, but the things that America once stood for are slowly being deleted from the tables. Leaving many to reconsider their approach to society in it's new found Leprosy. It's very difficult to treat diseases which continually mutate over time, growing more severe with each breath we take. Until he finds his own method of treatment to approach, he will remain silent. In February of this year, he did say he is thinking of recording again, I say, he still looks great, he sounds like he always has and for heavens sake, every should give the man a break because, even if he does decide not to record ever again, that does not mean his voice is shot, or that he is too arrogant to share with the new generations, it may only mean that he no longer draws energy from lending his heart and soul to a massive group to which many obviously draw their energy from wasting their own vocal breaths trying to paint a picture they've never personally seen. I say, I am grateful for each moment the man spends breathing the same air as the rest of us, I thank him for having the heart to share his beliefs and encouraging kindness, faith and love to rein over hatred. No one in his right mind has the right to say anything derogatory about Mr. Perry! In short the only ones who do must be harboring jealousy, hate, or be totally consumed with insecurity, as they reach out to slander the names of those who desire nothing more than to live their lives as they see fit and not as others demand. The man has not only earned the rights to his freedom, He now owns them. So, for those who wish to continue with their slanderous remarks about Mr. Perry, You might do better to get out their and begin earning your rights to your own freedom before you realize you've wasted your whole life second guessing the world instead of participating in the efforts to preserve your very own freedoms. I am Forever grateful to Steve Perry in his past efforts and respect whatever his decisions in life should be. He doesn't owe anything to his true fans, in fact he has more than paid his dues to those who have followed him throughout his career. May he be blessed forever!

T.C.
I've read through these posts and, like all other boards, it gets into mudslinging, rudeness and off-topic jabbing. I get Joe's point, albeit a bit harsh in some respects. It's understandable, as the fans are anxiously awaiting a new record and SP has been a bit vague on his plans. That said, Joe's comments about the drug thing are unfounded, as we can't speculate on SP's personal life. From all I've read over the last few years, my opinion - sorry folks - that SP's voice just isn't there anymore (seriously - listen to the TBF album w/Journey and you'll hear the voice is not as crisp as it was compared to his other recordings). There's wear and tear on SP's voice. I was going to see him for the FLOTSM tour in New Orleans back in '95, but he canceled due to an illness. He sung high tenor material for 10 years touring and the voice was admittedly shot during the 87-88 tour, which he ultimately bowed out of (and left the band). C'mon - he's 61 now, richer than anyone could hope to be with a daily bucketload of royalities via radio and TV airplay, so he's got a right to put down the mic. Never has to sing another note in his life! Now, the circumstances surrounding his departure from the band in the mid-90s are suspect (bogus hip problem or real?) - ok - but then again, they went on without hiim and he hasn't answered with a solo album in over 15 years. Get the hint, people. There is no album. Maybe he'll put out a demo or two for fun, but I seriously doubt that SP will put out another CD. He's too proud to want to embarrass himself, and I can get behind that. The songs stand up on their own, and that's it. Don't forget how he canned Smitty and Ross back in '86 (not a cool move - which he admitted), so there is blame to be cast all-around. I think Neal would take him back in a second, but SP just knows he can't sing those tunes anymore. Herbie Herbert's recent interview said that back in the 90s SP told the band to drop a few songs 2 whole steps - which Neal & Jon couldn't do. He just can't sing in those crazy keys anymore.

Wahwah
Hi Mr. Bill, I think I was up and gone to Carolina in in my mind or something like that. I thought maybe you had decided this was Tainted Love or something...Baby baby, where did our love go? I've been checking in on occasion as I wondered if maybe you had taken the Midnight Train To Georgia again vowing never to return. I'm so glad you're back! I was just thinking about that time, many moons ago when I was caught on a one way street with that sweet taste that suddenly turned bitter when all of the sudden, from out of nowhere, a mad man appeared holding a large caliber squirt gun pointed straight at the man of my dreams, I had to walk away from my love out of fear that he might get squirted in the face and drown. Anyway, I survived that episode knowing that my love had escaped safely to pursue his greatest dreams. In the blink of an eye, I also escaped and ran for my life, I'm sure you've heard that thing about how sugar melts? Anyway, I didn't want to risk getting squirted myself so I ran for my life and kept running for a few months. When I did return, I often thought of my love and wondered, did he ever think of me the way I thought of him? Probably not! Oh well, since then I never looked back, it's almost like living a dream. I guess sometimes we get lucky enough to spend an instant with the person of our dreams...My love taught me a lot and for that I will always be grateful. So tell me about your adventures Mr. Bill...Did you miss me while you were searching for yourself?

Bill
Where are you Wahwah?

Sounds like a certain someone here knows everything there is to know about Steve Perry??? NOT!!! It amazes me how some of you speak as if you know what the heck you are talking about, when in fact you are only repeating rumors made up by a bunch of haters that go around making false claims about someone famous in order to gain personal attention. They must be very sick and sad if they can't find something special within themselves to gain the attention they so desperately seek. When you speak poorly of others it's because you have nothing decent to proclaim about yourself! On the other hand, if you reach from within and find "what makes you special" instead of spewing out insults about people you don't even know, you may someday find it possible to hold your head up high and would no longer feel the need to engage in such idiocy...If you have never walked in the shoes of Steve Perry, You should not make false accusations about his character! Just imagine... Someday one of you might be in very similar shoes.

I wuzz here
"Where Were Yooooou"

Isat U Wilber
Didn't you hear? The mighty Star Ship came and lifted them all to glory, The rest of us were left here to think about it all...Honestly, I haven't given it much thought, but now, I do wonder if they took Steve Perry along??? Please, Say it isn't so!

Guess Who
Hey its been a few days since anyone has been here. Where did everyone go?

Looks like 5 year Perry Fan is jealous! It's O.K. number 5, I believe they were just having a bit of fun here! At least they do mention Steve Perry's name many times in their silly conversations...I never knew it was a crime for two people to speak kindly to one another?

5 year perry fan
OK wah wah and bill u guys really need to stop talking on here if all u guys are going to say is trash then dont say anything!!

And speaking of Loons, Wow! Some folks really get knots in their undies when they see other folks simply enjoying life and expressing what they feel about anything. And...That's All Folks!

Heather
Jeez the loons get really upset when anyone says anything negative about Perry. You people need a reality check. Last time I checked Steve did not rise on the third day, so chill. People are entitled not to like him, or to think he is an ass. If people have the sense to be objective they can see he has done some bad things too. And many people have said over the years that Perry is not a nice person and that it is suprising his ego can fit through the doorway. Plus Jon and Neal were not the ones who kept walking out on the band. All they did was fire someone (Perry) who didn't want to come to work. In the real world it happens all the time. Probably some of those who are defending Perry have fired unreliable folks from jobs. And I am not even touching on the fact that the whole TBF fiasco was claimed by some to be manipulation and lies on Steve's part. As far as music goes Steve has been talking about "doing something' for years and it hasn't happened yet. So people can be skeptical. Sorry ladies it ain't happening,it was over for Perry a long time ago. Of course his fans don't give up the fantasy, but they are called loons for a reason.

Wahwah
Oh, Nooooooooo! Mr. Bill, Sounds as if Mrs. O'Leary's had a nip of Irish Whiskey... You know what they say about instant a-holes, Just add alcohol. If she had half a mind, she might have something at least. I mean, she even ask, why don't the girls just leave him alone, why do they talk about things they know nothing about and then added, we should all know that S.P. has psychiatric issues??? It sounds as if those Goon Hogs are attempting to surround us again. I wonder how long it took them to make up a name such as Katherine O'Leary? Oh, No, Mr. Bill, Is it possible those goons are attempting identity fraud in efforts to obtain the funding for their fermented fruit sucking habits that would require them to make frequent trips abroad? I don't know, Again, just guessing, but, if she really knows sooooooooo much about Steve Perry, she must be either stalking him, or simply making a feverish attempt to draw attention to herself as the Goon Hogs do to entertain one another. A true Steve Perry fan need not question other fans about what they think and why they still follow! This years February interviews would be enough to answer silly questions such as that. Anyway, I hope that someday it may become possible to provide proper education for Goon Hogs as well as humans. If not, we may all wind up sucking fermented fruit trees to escape the madness we have come to know as reality. Hmm, One would wonder...When all of the fermented fruit suckers become addicted, how many job openings for shrinks might it bring, and who'll be shrinking who, and what size will we be when all is said and done? Oh, No, Mr. Bill, once again, so many questions arise, but then again, the answers are always blowing in the wind. So next time you hear someone whistling Dixie from their behind, ask them where you can get a good tune up! Until next time, do not listen to the insanity, and remember Goon Hogs are like most Dogs, they have an instinctive appetite for butt sniffing. Watch your back side Mr. Bill... O'Leary could really be Ken instead of Katherine...O.K. so maybe I don't know O'Leary and have no business speaking of him/her in that manner, Oh well, blame it on the rain or something like that. I mean hey, if they can fault me for being a Steve Perry fan, then I feel free to blame who or whatever I choose. Keep smiling Mr. Bill, and by all means, "Don't Stop Believing" Oh, yes, my apologies to O'Leary, but try to understand, Life is a series of disappointment as well as achievement, you may achieve happiness, but only if you are willing to give as much in return. Share the joy, If you have a problem with Steve Perry or his fans, Don't read the fan blogs.

Katherine O'Leary
Alright loons where is Steve's new album ? It is getting close to the end of 2010 no album yet. Got fooled again didn't you ? . Perry's voice is shot, it has been shot, he knows it. He couldn't sell out small halls or have big CD sales in 1995 he sure as heck won't have them now. Plus anyone with half a brain can tell Steve has major psychiatric issues, that is why he crapped on his band and his fans. And why these sad crazy women (that pretty much make up his whole fan base) won't leave the guy alone I will never know. I mean Perry doesn't want to record an album. At his age he probably gets up three times a night to pee. Plus he has aged really bad. Like someone said else where Steve did not age like a fine wine he aged like wine turned to vinegar.

Bill
Ha ha Wahwah. You're so funny. These baboons are apparently a species that is not happy unless insulting someone and they don't know what to do when you return fire. Also they must be very powerful. I think they own this website or at least they act like they do because you can only post what they want you to post. Maybe they're Russian? So sad and lonely. No wonder Joe got bored of their act. Anyway Wahwah, keep pushin, keep pushin on.

What about that Steve Perry release? Where Is it?

Wahwah
As I was about to say before I finished posting...Mr Bill! Help! I believe their closing in around me now! Please, though me a piece of fruit just in case the first plan doesn't work. Um, Now Lets see... Oh yea, Uh, hum,, mee, mee, mee, mee.... Go away, go away I sing goodbye too you, when the song is gone you'll be on, on to someone new...Uh, oh, wait a minute...It's not working, it looks as if a few of them can actually distinguish the difference in Steve Perry and a poor imitation... Hurry up with that fruit will ya, I'm heading for the mountains!

Wahwah
Oh Nooooo! Mr. Bill...It appears that some fermented fruit sucking baboons successfully mated with some fermented fruit sucking warthogs resulting in offspring known as Gohtraw Noonbabs or Goon Hogs. When scientist studied this new species, they found an extremely rare disorder known as Dumbassafterall. This study of their disorder has concluded that while this particular species exhibit certain animal behavior patterns even though they have no brain. Some behavior patterns included grunting, snorting, screaming drooling, staggering, aggressiveness, and ability to lean extremely limited vocabulary. Yes, they can actually speak, type, and appear to be communicating even though they have no idea what they are saying. As I look at some of the blogs lately, I begin to believe more and more that this particular species has somehow staggered from continent to continent, making its presence known worldwide. I understand these creatures are very ugly and capable of creating a stench the tabloids would not dare to go near. Anyway, Mr. Bill, just wanted you to be aware in case one of these staggering beast crosses your path. Oh yea, most importantly, in case you encounter on of these uglies, look away. If they insist on standing before you, just look up at the sky and sing Steve Perry's song called"Go Away" they say that usually does the trick, but just in case all else fails and they continue to follow you like a lost puppy, throw a piece of fermented fruit over a steep cliff. They fall for it every time! Mr. Bill!

Hey, sounds like a couple of kids that love insulting and provoking others in hopes of gaining what? If you need attention go talk to your mummies...

10 year perry fan
Hey sounds like bill and wahwah are both guys are u scared i am. :(

perry fan too
I agree with 30 year perry fan, this is a Steve Perry fan site NOT a WahWah and Bill site. Besides no body ever said they took away your freedom of speech bill. All thats been said is that maybe you should take your personal messaging else where. By the way Bill, sounds like you cant handle a profesional telling you off so you have to make childish remarks.

Don't worry Mr. Bill, You'll never be alone, My heart will be your shelter and keep you warm...

Wahwah
Here I am "Hanging By A Thread" again Mr. Bill, I never thought you to be a fool, although, if you think about it, everybody plays the fool, no exceptions...It would be rather foolish of me to post an email address here. With all the bogus comments and people who pretend to be someone they are not. Oh yes, not to mention the big hack hack monsters of the inter world... Being stalked and harassed by some of those guys is enough to send you swimming swiftly cross the Rio in reverse! I do enjoy conversing with you, although, once bitten twice shy. Even that is an understatement! Anyway, life goes on, long after the thrill is gone. Till then we keep on waiting for the world to change...Everything's gonna be alright someday, someway, you'll find yourself at the crossroads wondering which way is up, while asking yourself "Does anybody really know what time it is?" As many questions begin to arise in your mind, and suddenly the wheels are in motion, you'll hear the sound of that long train running as it goes rushing through the tunnel of love. At that moment you finally see her, then without a thought, you'll simply get on the good foot and jump on board and the love train. As many questions begin to fade you will still ask yourself, why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near? Two answers come to mind, either you're always standing under a birds nest, or maybe it's just an illusion when that red red wine goes to your head. Either way, that's still pretty cool huh? Anyway, to make a long story longer, you find yourself at the Hotel California where the next morning they tell you that you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave. Now more questions begin to arise once again and you find yourself saying: "Wait A Minute Now!" "Since when could I afford to live in such a fancy hotel anyway?" I mean there's plenty of room, they have candles to light the way, I realize the smell is a bit musky but and they haven't had spirits there in years, but hey, there's a mission bell and a courtyard to dance in if I can only put up with all those pretty, pretty boys out there. But as the morning sun creeps across the room, you were only dreaming. So, once again, you get on the good foot to begin a new day, where once again questions begin to arise, but don't stop believing because someday, someway, we all find that time is the answer. Meanwhile, if you want to chat I will be here "Hanging By A Thread"

Bill
Taken in. Taken in again. I serenade you wahwah

Bubbles14
Maybe bill if u like to talk trash so much u would be better off just leaving us all alone!!!! especially 30 year perry fan!!!!!!!! :)

It's always the same old story, you never know what you got till it's gone...."All I Need Is A Miracle"

Wahwah
Hi Mr. Bill, I was hoping to hear from you again. Where were you this time? I don't know about you but I must've got lost somewhere down the line while I was watching the dogs chase the wheel in the sky. I just got home from Illinois, lock the front door, Oh Boy! I'm still not quite sure how I wound up there, but I am sure you can imagine how freaky that was, what, with the giants doing cartwheels, statues wearing high heels and then there were all those happy creatures dancing on the lawn, So I am thinking I made my mistake when I decided to take a ride on the flying spoon. Whew, I thought I'd never get back from that trip. Anyway Mr. Bill, Did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there and did you actually find yourself? Did you look like you were having the time of your life? Did you ask yourself things such as if he ever thought of you or what would he do if he were in your shoes and what size are his shoes? So many questions one could ask themselves. But then again, if one were to find they prefer not to be questioned in such a way, one may take care not to make himself uncomfortable with himself. One should also try very hard not to confuse themselves with each other. I mean, if you don't know yourself, who does??? You should also be careful not to be to angry with yourself as you may wind up kicking your own butt. I know, it sounds like a lot of trouble getting to know yourself, but believe me, you'll thank yourself someday! On the other hand, don't think too much of yourself as that is very selfish and may create friction between you, yourself and you, and that you is not the you, you think it may be, but we'll discuss that later. Last but not least, Be Good To Yourself when nobody else will, and if, you should find yourself falling short of perfection, don't let it get you down, just grab a step ladder, give it all you got and if you fail, don't stop believing in yourself. Wow, Mr. Bill, does that sound crazy or what? Oh, No, Mr. Bill, here we go again, I see tambourines and elephants are playing in the band, I'll get back to you when it's over!

Bill
Sorry 30 year perv. I had no idea this was your message board. And I had no idea that Obama had done away with freedom of speech. The only time I say anthing about you is to defend myself, so seriously you get a life. Go away nursey.

30 year perry fan
Bill, you wish but no matter how you try to insult me You will never figure it out. I really cant understand how people like you can turn being a Steve Perry fan into a bashing session. Also how did you get the idea that this was your personal message board to wahwah. Lord you need to get a life and move on.

Bill
Yes. Wahwah. How sweet it is to be loved by you. When will you send me your email so we can chat?

Wahwah
Mr Bill?

One More Message Of Love...Makes No Difference Who's Crying Now, It's Just The Rain Anyway. Listen To Your Heart, You Should Be Happy When You're In Love For The First Time, I Am. What Was Tuesday's Heartache, Makes No Difference, It's Only Love. Forever Right Or Wrong, When I Think Of You, I Am Stone In Love. I Believe You Better Wait For The Love Of Strange Medicine. Ask The Lonely! Only The Young Foolish Heart Can't Tame The Lion. Easy To Fall When You're In Love For The First Time. After The Fall, Stand Up Before It's Too Late. I Stand Alone Missing You, Lights, Castles Burning, Wheel, In The Sky, Standing In The Line Of Fire, Somewhere There's Hope...Go Away, Escape, I'll Be Alright Without You.

Oh, shi, Oops, I mean, Oh, Sherri, I almost forgot, there'll be no more Back Talk, for it may result in a Chain Reaction which unlike hearing a sweet Melody, may lead to one of us feeling like a Troubled Child. If you have Somethin' To Hide such as, being Strung Out and hung up on someone else, By all means, Send Her My Love and Go Away, I don't wish to hear about it! It's hard to love somebody, especially when they don't belong to you...

Steve Perry I hope you're busy recording at this moment...

I just wanna stop, and tell you what I'm feeling about you, but the words get in the way...

Wahwah
I heard that everybody was dancin' in the moonlight. How will we get rid of them all if they are feelin' warm and bright? I mean, you can't dance and stay uptight, right? Besides LOL, who told you I was old enough to dance the night away? Hey, maybe you could lean on me and I'll stand by you, or the other way around, depending on who's feeling weakest at that moment. Oh and if you'd like, maybe we could go out after the show and have a cup of coffee or something, huh? Anyway you want it Mr. Bill, here I am with open arms, so put me on a highway and show me a sign and I'll be there when the lights go down in the city. Not sure if I'll be able to see you once they do, but I could send up a signal if you throw me a line and minute by minute I'll be holding on in anticipation, waiting for the world to change as you say why and I say I don't know. I know, it sounds a bit tricky, but I do think it's a marvelous night for a moon dance, so O.K. Mr. Bill, dance with me, I want to be your partner, who knows, we could be dancing with the stars in no time... Think of it, just the two of us building them castles in the sky, right next to the wheel in the sky. Maybe, we could hang some lights and make our very own dance floor out of it. The question is, will it go round in circles and make us dizzy as we dance??? The possibilities are endless! Let me know if you have any ideas...

Bill
Dance the night away. With me Wahwah.

babe999
I think Steve Perry should do his part to get us out of this recession and release an album - lots of people would buy it (which would stimulate the private sector, and generate sales tax revenue), people would feel good when listening to it (which would make people put a smile on their face, which would be good for business in general) and would also have a positive effect on people with good ideas by releasing endorphins and other hormones (which would very likely stimulate the entrepreneurial and/or innovative spirits in those people, which in turn would lead to new, better products which would sell like crazy, increase exports, and reduce the deficit), which would, consequently, improve our economy. Steve - AMERICA NEEDS YOU! :)

Me Too!

Steve Perry Please deliver the goods, the world is waiting with Open Arms!

Wahwah
Oh noooo! Looks as if Mr. Bill has taken a highway run into the midnight sun... I'm sure that if he had collided with the wheel in the sky, it would have made headlines by now...I do hope he's O.K. though... It's been so long since I've seen any sign of him. It may be possible that he is searching for what's left after the fall??? Then again, he may be caught on a one way street with the taste of bittersweet memories of what was. Oh well, it's O.K. Mr. Bill, I'll be alright without you...Ask the lonely, I am sure they will tell you, only the young can say. Now, how confusing is that? Anyway, I hope Steve Perry will make a comeback soon!

Dear Diary, Today as I listen to my Steve Perry collection, many questions come to mind. Steve said "Don't Stop Believing" and I didn't, so now what? Does Steve know I still cry for him? Steve also said "Somewhere There's Hope" I wonder why he couldn't cut me a break and simply give me directions? If nothing stands between love and me, could it be Steven Ray Perry is also the invisible man? If I could show Steve the letter my heart forgot to send, would it be legible? Hmm? Hey, I wonder if maybe he could come around after the show and we could go out and have a cup of coffee or something, huh?, huh? And last but not least, exactly what questions should I ask the lonely? If they were anything like me I don't think their answers could be of much assistance. Anyway Diary, just a few things I wanted to keep in mind in case I ever have that cup of coffee with him. In the meanwhile I will be good to myself and enjoy the rest of my vacation.

June 3rd 2010 Dear Diary, Today I woke up thinking of him as usual. You know, that guy with "The Voice" I'm always writing about. Anyway Diary, Once again I am spending my day listening to his old music and searching for any new word of his return. He once said "Don't Stop Believing" and I don't intend to. I only hope today will be the day I have been waiting for...I know, I said that yesterday and the day before as well, but hey! Today is a brand new day...Please come back Steve Perry!!! Oh, please forgive me Diary as I forgot where I was but, anyway, as I was saying...Just another day like all the rest. Who Knows, Maybe this will be the one! Forever Yours Faithfully...

Wahwah
Mr. Bill, I heard somewhere you had a girl named Sally and a dog named Spot, or was it the other way around? I do hope you didn't run away again or anything. If you happen to see Mr. Hand out there somewhere, don't be fooled into thinking he is about to do you any favors, remember he is Sluggo's buddy...Anyway, I do hope everything is O.K.

"Only Solutions" is all can think of at the moment...

Wahwah
Hi Mr Bill, I just want to say this is my way of telling you everything I could never say before... Whew, there, I said it now! That wasn't so difficult after all. Oh yes, that reminds me of the time someone very special to me said: "with age we begin lose certain things such as memory, eyesight, ect... and that in the case of a dancer, the hips are the first to go." The odd thing was, in my case, he was the first thing to go. And to think that age had not yet introduced itself. Oh well, I learned a lot from him and I thanked him. Moral of the story is, as painful as it may be, is that sometimes, we must let go of a good thing and um, um, well...Settle for less? No, I hardly think that's really what he meant, but, then again I haven't seen him since, so, I'm really not sure! I went to a Sad Cafe where we'd been once before hoping to see him again, but, could not remember what time we were to meet.. Realizing quickly I could not wait forever, as I knew eventually I could be picked up for loitering, I decided to move on and let go of "What Was" knowing that someday, someway, we may meet again and laugh about the whole thing! So now let's hear your story Bill...

Bill
Sorry 30 Year whatever. Maybe you're one of those stool collectors.

Bill
I just called to say I Wahwah. And I miss you from the bottom of my heart.

30 year perry fan
my lord Bill you really are stupid. If you think I am a male nurse you must be completely insane.

Wahwah
I need a sign to let me know you're here, Cause all these rumors keep it all from being clear, I want a reason for this talk of things to be, I need to hear a brand new song from you Steve Perry! I won't give up, if you don't give up...

Oooh No Mr. Bill! Was it something I said? Was it anything I may have misspelled? Was it the way it all looked on paper? Was this relationship always hanging on by a thread anyway? Oh Nooooooo, I think I've been crushed once again, only this time, Sluggo had nothing to do with it!

How about this one, isn't it entirely possible that he is producing his very own stuff, and does not wish to have an agent??? I mean, the way musicians get ripped these days and don't forget about history, who is anyone to question what they are doing at all. In my view we would all be lucky if Steve Perry decides to come back at all after what he has already encountered...I do think it will happen, the when is entirely up to him!

gluchnurse
Posted a note on the wallpaper of Randy Goodrum's facebook page asking if his comment in his bio on his webpage about working on new stuff for Steve Perry's next project could be amplified and explained. No response yet, though he has responded in May to other people's comments on other topics. Goodrum was the co-writer of 'Oh Sherrie' and other Street Talk album songs. Is a good sign, but that notation has been on his bio page for a couple months now. Says 'more later', but there hasn't been anymore, and Steve in the February interviews said he had nothing beyond the demo stage. SO....just don't get what is delaying him, unless it's the logistics of the ability to market it! But since the revamped 'Journey' released their album independently through Walmart, and since Sade released her first album in 10 years and it went to number 1 and she is over 60, a distributor HAS to know that there will be interest in buying Steve's project! Just wish someone would get it DONE! Indecision, and second guessing lead to paralysis and a self critique that can condemn one to just spinning in circles. He needs to set a deadline, self imposed or not, and pretend that like the old days he has a manager and the label breathing down his neck to give the project impetus and some wings!

Wahwah
Oh No Mr Bill, I was thinking about Steve Perry this morning when suddenly, there was a "Strange Magic" in the air. A gathering of angels appeared above my head, they sang to me this song of hope and this is what they said, they said: "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot" I said: "What???" Then they said: "Just Kidding, what we really came to say is that "Heaven Is A Place On Earth" so I asked them "How Far Is Heaven" "Anyway" They said: "So Far Away" So, I said: "O.K. then, If "Heaven's Just A Sin Away" then how does one calculate the miles of a sin?" The angel in charge said: "I say high, you say low, you say why, and I say I don't know." I said: "Oh No... You say goodbye and I say hello" And things just got weird after that...I found myself wanting to say "Abracadabra" I wanna reach out and grab ya by the left wing and pull you off that cloud, but instead, I said: "O.K, so we seem to be having some sort of "Communication Breakdown" here. Is there anyway I can speak with the man upstairs?" The angels told me that would be fine with them if I could afford to buying the "Stairway To Heaven." Oh well, it was then I realized I would have to sail across the sun and make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded and that heaven is over rated before returning to the atmosphere with drops of Jupiter in my hair, and need I say what a mess that was? That was a soul vacation I'll never take again...So tell me Mr. Bill, how was your day??? I hope you're smiling!

Wahwah
Where there's a will there's a way Mr. Bill... "Don't Stop Believing"

Bill
Hey Bubbles. That was Joe that was going to post again in March. Were you drunk when you wrote that. It barely makes sense. Thanks Wahwah, I may rock but you're the roll to my rock and roll. Can't You Say You Believe in Me.

Wahwah
Steve Perry Rocks, So does Bill!

Bubbles14
Hey bill i thought u werent going to annoy us again until march 2011 LIER hey and by the way dont be talkin like tht to 30 year perry fan ur probaly only doing it because u think ur so kool but ur not grow up and get a life stop annoying with ur so called u think "funny" comments there actually make no sense u probably live with ur moom i wuold not be suprised!

Wahwah
Hey- hey- hey- ey-ey-ey...Mr. Bill- Bill- Bill- ill... Can You Hear Me Calling?

Ain't it good to know that you've got a friend Mr. Bill???

Mr. Bill, "This Is Your Song" I may not be the same gender as Elton, but I hope you don't mind that I put down the words...

Wahwah
Oh No Mr. Bill, It seems I'm "Feeling That Way" Once again, you've "Opened The Door" with "Open Arms" and I believe a "Chain Reaction" is occurring as we speak. "Someday Soon" if the "Wheel In The Sky" should stop turning, just "Remember Me" I'll live on in your heart somewhere and hopefully "I Would Find You" on "Mystery Mountain" as "In My Lonely Feeling" I would "Look Into The Future" and you could see "The Eyes Of A Woman" as we have "Conversations" about "What Was" and realize "It's All Too Much" "On A Saturday Night" Then we decide never to go our "Separate Ways" again. Say, "Do You Recall" that time, just off the "Dixie Highway" where I was standing in the "Line Of Fire" caught on a one way street and it was "Too Late" to make a change? "Where Were You" when I needed you? Oh, maybe that wasn't you after all. LOL "Anyway" I am happy to hear from you once again Mr. Bill. I hope you had a lovely week! I always said "Anyway Way You Want It' that's the way you need it, but then, sometimes I do wonder if there is any truth to that... Oh well, "If You Need Me Call Me" when "The Party's Over" if it's not "Too Late" or anything. Stay Sweet and "Don't Stop Believing!"

Bill
youve got the positive touch wahwah

How does one manage to "Turn The Tide" without acknowledging involvement?

Wahwah
Sluggo took up nursing? Who would have ever imagined... "Anyway" What was I saying? Oh yes, I found myself "Missing You" too Mr. Bill. You know I still love you, though we touched and went our "Separate Ways" for a few days... It's been so long, but I still recall, Umm... well, maybe not, but it's great to talk to you again! I still love Steve Perry as I always have so not much has changed since I've seen your face. I hope all is well with you.

Bill
Hey Wahwah. I missed you. Don't worry. Sluggo the male nurse wont come between us

Hello? Mr. Bill?

Wahwah
Oh Noooooo, Mr. Bill, I meant to say, the most!

Wahwah
Oh Noooooo, It appears that Sluggo has once again stepped in to squash Mr. Bill... What Now? How about we team up and make the ,ost of it anyway Mr. Bill???

30 year perry fan
Ya know Bill, Thats not what I wrote so grow up. Maybe you need to get medical help too. You cant seem to get your mind off one subject. You are just another shallow minded one thought pain like your little buddy joe.

Bill
Hey. I wonder where 30 Year perv went?

bill
What the f

Kaj
Whether the comments are for or against Perry, this page truly shows that people still talks Perry in 2010 so Steve! Deliver a new masterpiece! PLEEEEEEEEEZE

Oh No! Mr. Bill, I do hope you're not hung up in traffic again! As we know the freeway can be a nightmare in rush hour...I was wondering if the "Freeway of Love" and "Expressway To Your Heart" look anything like Route 66??? I did hear that "Life In The Fast Lane" is a rough road to travel... But, If you take "The Long And Winding Road" and from there go "East Bound And Down" and then "Follow The Yellow Brick Road" all the way to the end, turn left and then go right at the first light "Down On The Corner" you should find the "Dark End Of The Street" where there's an "Old Man On The Corner" holding the detour sign which will guide you around the "Highway to Hell" and keep you safe in your travels. Whew! Now if I could just remember the name of that town that lies "Up Around The Bend" you might just get there by tomorrow. Oh well, buckle up and be safe!

Mr. Bill, It seems I am "Forever In Blue" and "It Could Have Been You" but for some reason, this "Troubled Child" is still "Happy To Give" cause "Once You Love Somebody," a "Chain Reaction" is bound to occur. This "Little Girl" while looking through "The Eyes Of A Woman" can clearly see "Who's Crying Now." "Still She Cries" when she hears that "Message Of Love," the "Girl Can't Help It" after finding that she "Can't Tame The Lion." I still recall a sad cafe that I visited some years ago, after leaving I found I was caught on a one way street and had to think quickly as "Precious Time" was about to run out on me, else, I could have ended up in the "Line Of Fire" and woke up in the "City Of The Angels." Although that may have not been such a bad thing at the time, I am so glad I decided to turn that big "Wheel In The Sky" and make my "Escape." As it turns out the "Only The Young" who were "Raised On Radio" "Don't Stop Believing" and "Faithfully" continue to search for the "Lights" to reveal the "Colors Of The Spirit" while know it's so "Easy to Fall" yet, they never forget once they've learned what's left "After The Fall..." Even though some of us go our "Separate Ways' and find ourselves worlds apart, we realize that "Open Arms" will find us someday. If you don't know what I am saying here, just "Ask The Lonely" I am sure they could explain it! Then again?

I wonder what happened to the "White Flag" I used to keep in my pocket??? Last time I saw it was the time someone asked me if I liked to go "Sailing." The only thing I remember after that was "Watching The River Run" as I was busy running the other way. He probably used it to break wind on his journey...No, Mr. Bill, not that way! Nah, I won't bother to rephrase that. I will say it would be so great "If I Could Change The World.' "If I were a business man, I'd sit behind a desk, I'd be so successful, it would scare Wall Street to death, I would hold a meeting for the press to let them know," uh, on second thought, maybe that would be a bit over the top... "I Know This Much Is True" "I've Had The Time Of My Life" so I guess you could say that III been lucky, I guess you could say, that it's all because of you, I mean you can say anything you like, all I know is "If Anyone Should Ever Write My Life Story" for what ever reason there might be, man would they ever be shocked! It would have to be a part ten series at least...But as I've said before, we all have our own stories to tell. Some are happy, some are sad, and some are tales about a world gone mad, some are silly some are true, I know there must be one about you... Hmm, bet it's a good one...OK, so now it's your turn to "Make Me Smile" Mr. Bill...

Wahwah
And it's you once again leading me on Mr. Bill... Should I rest for a while at the side, or turn this boat around???

Oh, No, Mr. Bill, I Believe In You! I believe if you truly believe in love, then "Love Will Find A Way!" So Don't Stop" thinkin' about tomorrow!

Bill
I guess I'm just crazy on a Ship of Fools and my love is in league with the freeway.

Mr. Bill, We can't go on just running away, if we wait any longer we will surely Never find "Paradise By The Dashboard Light," I mean not that we'd wish to find ourselves praying for the end of time to hurry up and arrive or anything...So "Can't You See" that we should stop riding fences and come to our senses before it's too late??? I was talkin' with a friend of mine, said a woman had hurt his pride and I said: When the truth is found to be lies and all the joy within you dies, don't you want "Somebody To Love?" He said: "Find Me Somebody To Love!" I said: It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you, but I must go to "Africa" and do the things I never have, first I will "Run Through The Jungle" and go "Rolling On The River" while "Riding The Storm Out" and watch the monkeys dance to "Jungle Love" to see "Who's Zooming Who." Afterwards I shall search for a fermented fruit tree and get my fill, they say there's a movie that never ends it goes on and on and on and on and I really don't want to miss it! Anyway, by the time I told my friend all of this, he was already on another midnight train going anywhere and I haven't heard from him since.. But tonight "It's Only You And Me" so you can tell everybody this is "Your Song" as long as you promise your not just some "Killer Queen" bee looking for some "Tupelo Honey" to tide you over until your next dish arrives. "How Can I Be Sure?" I mean it seems as though everyone I meet resembles "Frankenstein" not so much in appearance as behavior, "Do You Know What I Mean?" I try to avoid those who appear to have been drinking "Funk #49" a few years too many! It seems I begged "Cupid" to draw back his bow, he though I said throw back a bone. I dunno, sometimes i wonder who wrote the book of love anyway... I have to get moving it's getting late now, Oh dear, please "Don't let The Sun Go Down On Me" that would hurt and besides I still have paperwork in front of me... till next time!

Uh, Oh, Mr. Bill....I was just about to take a "Magic Carpet Ride" when all of the sudden this huge Iron Butterfly appeared from out of nowhere singing "In-A Gadda Da-vida," I thought about it for a moment and decided it might be a very painful encounter if I were to collide with one of those in mid air, so I decided to "Take A Walk On The Wild Side" to ensure I would "Get Back" to the "Green River" but just before I began walking, a "Magic Man" appeared before me saying "It's Too Late To Turn Back Now..." I said to him, "I Want You To Show Me The Way" and he said: "You're Gonna Have To Save Yourself This Time Darlin'" Now I don't know "Which Way Is Up" anymore. Oh, but, wait a minute... I do believe I see "Low Rider" "Up Around The Bend." Maybe I should be "Hitchin' A Ride" to the "City Of New Orleans" and from there I could go "Saling" until I see the "Lights" of "San Francisco" and I could be "Leaving On A Jet Plane" by Friday...Oh gee, I don't know where to begin, "Where Did Our Love Go" anyway? " Maybe it was Memphis?" For all I know I could have lost it when I was Leaving Las Vegas" or some place like that. All I remember is that I was "Walking In Memphis" once and saw the "Werewolves of London" "Dancing In The Street" "Downtown" as one of the was singing "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag..." "Baby, What A Big Surprise" That was! I asked one of them how to get to "Chicago" and I wound up in South Detroit instead. Go Figure... Anyway "I Must've Got Lost" somewhere down the line. But I did meet some "Nashville Cat's" who asked me "Who Let The Doggs Out?" How was I supposed to know? So moving on...I found myself on "The Highway To Hell" when all of the sudden I was "Blinded By The Light" but "I Can See Clearly Now" so it's O.K. I just need to know "Where Do We Go From Here?" Things got a bit confusing with all the madness going on around me. So, tell me, "Do You Know The Way To San Jose" Mr. Bill???

Hey Mr. Bill, "Who are you?" I promise "I won't tell your name" Do you think it's "Time For A Cool Change" or am I simply "stuck in the middle with you" while considering options? Oh Gee, "Say It Isn't So" and "I'll be alright" "With Or Without You." But remember, "I can't live, if living is without you" but, "I can see for miles and miles" and I'd be willing to bet you gotta "Fast Car..." So Now What?

Oh No Mr. Bill, I just remembered "Saturday In The Park" is only a few days away, so I must be on my way to Chicago. The last time we did this, "someone left the cake out in the rain," and "I'll never have that recipe again, Oh Noooooo!" This time I should just buy a box of doughnuts I guess... "Heaven Knows," I can't take that again after it took so long to bake that cake in the first place. All I know is that "I'm So Tired Of Bein' Alone" and while this "Family Affair" sounds like lot's of fun, actually, it's "Just Another Manic Monday" to me. Ooops, Gotta go now, the "Peace Train" will be boarding soon, so before I take off, "Let's Just Kiss And Say Goodbye," That way "I Will Remember You" will you remember me? If not maybe it's all for the best. Sometime "Words Get In The Way," so, I must leave now before it's too late to make a change. "Be Good To Yourself" now!

Hey Mr. Bill, If your name was Steven Ray Perry every thing could change "In A New York Minute!" I do enjoy chatting with you though..."If I Could Turn Back Time" I'd Be "The Happiest Girl In The Whole U.S.A.!!!" But, that was probably before your time Mr. Bill. I do hope to hear more from you soon...So "Be Good To Yourself" and "Don't Stop Believing!"

Bill
So Wahwah, tell me why can't this be love? I guess we'll never change what was.

Wahwah
"What About Now" Mr. Bill? "Who Are You" and "Where Were You??" I'm waiting to hear you sing a few words of your own...I'm sure you could think of "Somethin' To Talk About" Sooooooo...

Interesting, I have searched everything I could find on Randy Goodrum and cannot find a statement to back that rumor.

gluchnurse
Checked out Randy Goodrum's site-the amazing Nashville Hall of Fame songwriter who has written for and with hundreds of artists, including co-writing 'Oh, Sherrie' with Steve. He says that he is currently working on new material for Steve's next project, then 'more about that later'. Hope that means that Steve's oblique references to writing new material, and hoping to record it in multiple interviews this year are true!!

Hey Mr. Bill, have you ever been sendin' all your love along the wire, but for some reason kept getting a busy signal. It's better than "Nothing At All" I suppose... I was just thinking that when the "Lights" go down in the city, Oooh, I want to be there, but, if he can't hear my "Message Of Love" how will he ever know that "Tonight's The Night"? Guess, I'll just find a sad cafe somewhere...Maybe, I'm up against a no win situation, then again, he did say "Somewhere There's hope," so maybe I should take the midnight train going anywhere, maybe even Georgia just to see if he was right. It's enough to make you cry, ya know! It's been a mystery for sometime now, but my love will survive somehow, someway I guess.He said there are Only so many tears you can cry till everything around you is deemed a total loss due to flood damage... But when nothing stands between love and you, you'll sail on together and drift apart until you find "Open Arms" once more, That's the same way I love him...So for now I must get back to the insurance adjuster who claims they don't cover this type of flood damage after all.

Wahwah
Hello Mr. Bill, I must admit, it does sound interesting, although I realize, instead of "My Favorite Mistake" it could wind up being my "The Worst That Could Happen" to me. "Believe Me" when I tell you, being e-stalked, tracked and monitored is nothing like a lovely stroll "Under The Boardwalk" which reminds me of another little story of mine. When I was a "Young Girl" and thought I had "Too Much Time On My Hands" I discovered that "Love Is Like A Hurricane" First you see a "Bad Moon Risin" as the powerful storm rushes in and BAM!!! Next thing you know it's "Thunder And Lightening" I tell you it's frightening, especially when a gathering of angels appeared above my head and sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said, They said: "Come Sail Away", Come Sail Away, Come and Sail Away With Me...I thought they must be mad, I mean first of all, I didn't believe in angels that much, and second, who in their right mind would go sailing in that crap??? Anyway, I trusted the angels and as the story goes we searched for tomorrow on every shore, and I still try as best as I can to carry on. I was all alone one day when it hit me," What About Love?" and "What's Love Got To Do With It?" Well, at least now, "I know the reason, love has a season" I even questioned it myself at first, but then, "I Saw The Light' in his eyes...Wow! I mean, once I had love and it was a gas, he was some "Heart Breaker" When he left he said: "You Should Be Happy" so even though I still cry for him, I must do my best to keep a smile on my face, but don't let my glad expression give you the wrong impression. The "Tears Of A Clown" when no one's around make it difficult to keep my cereal from getting soggy. So much for that story! Interesting that my friends seem to think I'm "Crazy" for feeling so lonely, but, I say it's just a "Natural Thing." "Love Will Lead You Back" If only you believe in "Miracles." So Turn Around Bright Eyes! Once you've seen a "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" You'll begin to learn that "Everything Is Beautiful" in it's own way...If I could only find my hurricane once again I'd say: "Give me your heart, make it real, or else forget about it!" While, it may be true Mr. Bill that "What doesn't kill you, will only make you stronger" I never invite danger to my doorstep! This is a crazy world we live in today, but, "Don't Let It Get you Down" "Ya Gotta Have Faith" in who you are..which begs the question "Who Are You" I really wanna know! Oh well, I still don't see how to get there from here, but, try to "Keep On Smiling" "Anyway" Someday, "Love Will Find A Way" and when it does "Magnet And Steel" have quite an impact on one another. So forget about "Tainted Love" and all that stuff, because "Ain't Nothin' Like The Real Thing" and love is...Never having to say I'm "Sorry" you're blue. Oh yea, keep an eye out for those hurricanes, they can turn you upside down in an instant! I'd love to sing more about a "Crazy Little Thing Called Love' but I must go... I just remembered I should begin working on the letter my heart forgot to send. Dear Steve Perry, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" Ummm, uh.... Oooops! Forgive me Mr. Bill, I forgot where I was for a moment. Guess I should be "sendin' all my love along the wire" instead of in this thread, huh? Oh well, "Without love where would you be now?" "Counting Blue Cars" or doing the "Stray Cat Strut?" Whatever you decide "Don't Stop" thinking about tomorrow and "Listen To Your Heart," and when all else fails, "Don't Stop Believing." Take a ride on a rocket, take your mind, unlock it, that works wonders..."Who knows what tomorrow brings, in a world few hearts survive?" Not sure but, "I will go down with this ship," "I can't turn off my feelings like they're turning off a light, there's a fire that's been burning right outside my door, I can't see but I feel it and it helps to keep me warm, but I don't mind"...Huh? Wait a minute!...Oh yea, Gotta go before the house catches fire!

Bill
Hey Wahwah. Send me your email address so we can talk in private

Hellooooo, Mr. Bill??? I guess you decided to take a "Lover's Holiday" somewhere...Must have been feeling as if you were "Down In The Boondocks" or something of that nature...People say that "One Thing Leads To Another" So I hope you "Get Back" to where you once belong in time to "Take The Last Train To Clarksville" so you can say "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" as you enjoy watching the "Lights" go down in the city... "Mama Mia," I can just picture it now "Imagine" as you and your Beatles loving, Abba Monkees, "Dance The Night Away" and "Jump" For joy as you "Shout" with excitement as you see the "Blue Moon" rising above and then you recall "The First Time Ever, I Saw Your Face" "Could It Be Magic?" Some say "The Chain" Keeps us together, while others say "Goodbye To You..." "I Can't Help Believing" that "Somewhere, There's Hope" as "I Will Survive" even though I feel as if "I Can't Live If Living Is Without You" It still turns out I have a "Heart Of Glass" after all. Just when I think "The Party's Over" I realize "It's Not Unusual" to be loved by anyone, "so often times it happens that we live our lives in chains and we never even know we have the key... "So Take It Easy" and "Just Remember I Love You" and it'll Be Alright...Oh Yea, "What Day Is This, And in What Month?" Oh well, I just hope It's not "Too Late" I remember thinking to myself "Please, Get Me To The Church On Time" but the funny thing is I don't remember for what reason...Oh yes, I do remember after all...That's what happens when the "Wheel In The Sky" keeps on turning so fast that it makes your head spin! Have fun Mr. Bill, I must get back and "Dance To The Music" of my beloved Steve Perry. I just heard him say "Good Morning Girl" so this must be my cue... As for you Mr. Bill, "Carry On My Wayward Son" "Take your lady by the hand and make her do a high handstand???" Hmmm, now that sounds a bit dangerous in many ways! Oh well, I suppose that may not be the best of suggestions, so anyway, whatever you decide to do, by all means "Don't Worry, Be Happy!" and even though we are "Worlds Apart" "Don't You Forget About Me" Remember "You've Got A Friend" and "I'll Be There" so "If You Need Me, Call Me!" Or should I say leave a message???

Ooops! it seems I left out the N, in the M word in the last line of my latest story Mr. Bill. Oh well, Mistakes? I've made a few! But then again, never mind! I think it's about "Forgiveness" though... Oh yea, "The Sweetest Thing I've Ever Known" Is loving Steve Perry...I hope you're O.K. with that Mr. Bill, I wouldn't want you to have a "Nineteenth Nervous Breakdown" or anything. "Love Is A Rose" yet, they say "Every Rose Has It's Thorn." Maybe thats why "My Heart Keeps Bleeding Love" HUH? Anyway, keep your chin up Mr. Bill "Because The night Belongs To Us" I have no idea what to do with it though...is it possible they left out the K word on the N word? Maybe the knight belongs to us instead??? In that case Maybe I should check to see if the white horse comes with it. Just a thought...Maybe he has a map to that other different world I've been trying to "Escape" to??? I know Mr. Bill, you're probably thinking I should "Tell It Like It Is," so, O.K. Steve Perry is a Magic Man" and I do believe You're a "Soul Man." So "Pick Up The Pieces" and "Get Up Offa That Thing" dance and you'll feel better, while at the same time you could "Play That Funky Music" until "The Thrill Is Gone" Hmmm... In case you find it has gone away for good, "Don't Stop Believing" because there's always "Tomorrow" So keep on smilin' through the rain, The sun will come out again, it never fails!

Forgive me for misspelling your name Don Henley!

Wahwah
Howard Jones would be so flattered! Which brings me to that story about two different worlds...First one would have to schedule a "Magic Carpet Ride" in order to get there from here. Don't know about you, but I don't recall seeing any signs that advertise Magic Carpets for rent. "If I Could Turn Back Time" that song would belong to me instead of Cher... Don Henly says everything can change "In A New York Minute" so, "Don't Stop Believing" Mr. Bill. Just enjoy what's before you and "Keep You're Heart Open" cause, you never know at what moment you may be "Blinded By The Light" and "Faithfully" reminded that we are all here for a reason...So, "Listen To You're Heart" and "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" "I Had The Time Of My Life" so many times I can't count hem all. On the other hand, sometimes, "I Get These Steadily Depressing, Low Down Mind Messin' Working At The Car Wash Blues" The Doctor Say's to "Put The Lime In The Coconut" and call him in the morning, but I can never find his number when I finally do wake up...Oh well, I am usually better by late afternoon anyway. "Did You Ever Have To Finally Decide" to just say forget it? Wait a minute, I just remembered! I was supposed to be telling you about living in two different worlds, but, now I can't remember what I was getting at. Wish I could go "Sailing" cause it takes me away to where I've always heard it should be. Maybe that's the point I was hoping to make..."Somewhere Out There" There's a "Lonely Man On The Corner" and he's just waiting for something to show. Not sure when he'll see it, all I know is I heard him say: "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" I guess that's better than hearing him say: "Tomorrow May Be To Late" So, in conclusion, I must "Keep On Rolling" before "The Next Teardrop Falls" "I'm not aware of to May things, I know what I know, if you know what I mean..Do ya?

Wahwah
You can look at the menu, but you just can't eat, You can feel the cushion,but you can't have a seat, you can go dippin' in the pool, but you can't have a swim, You're the fastest runner, but you're not allowed to win????? Is that what you're trying to say???

Bill
Too bad you cant come to sing to me in person my sweet little cuckoo.

Uh, Oh...Sorry, I wasn't implying that you were a one armed man singing "Open Arms" I simply forgot to add the s... Oh gee, I see I put that s in the wrong place, I know you will find it as you read further. Oh yes and I do want to mention, I still say Steve Perry has a gift that keeps on giving...He Is One Amazing Man!

Wahwah
Oh Nooooooo! Here I am "Against The Wall" again..."We sailed on together but drifted apart" Now that you've come back with "Open Arm?" Tell me, "Where Were You?" I know about Circus life under the big top, while it may seem very glamorous and exciting, we all need the clowns to make us laugh... Through space and time, more ways than others I begin thinking... "After The Fall" when "The Party's Over" What was I to do??? "Oh, Sherrie", the girl I mentioned before, did you try calling her up? I know, she'll probably going hurting you, but remember there's a fever, that you'll never find nowhere else, but then again, you shoulda been gone if that's what you were going for in the first place. It's been a mystery, still we try to see, why something good can hurt so bad...Which reminds me of a strange story! Long ago, in a far away land, A friends and I along with another friend were driving along when we somehow got caught on a one way street, still we tried to see, I still don't know how our love could be so so blind...But, "Anyway" all of the sudden Sluggo showed up and everyone split quickly! (That great big hammer seems to have that effect on people) , know what I mean? It just didn't make sense, everything before that moment Sluggo arrived had been like living some beautiful dream, from which I never wanted to be awakened. Although, we knew our love could not partake, we were still making plans that Sluggo destroyed entirely! Leave it to Sluggo to smash the dreams of the innocent ones. Seriously though, We touched and went our "Separate Ways" as I lived with the nightmare of Sluggo showing up and stalking me every time I tried to begin my life again. I haven't seen Sluggo in years! To be honest, I think he must have met up with Mr. Clubbo and taken on a secret identity. I hope Clubbo can make a new man out of him! Anyway, Our "Summer Of Love" was completely destroyed by a man with a hammer and I have yet to rebuild...Kind of sad that I never saw my friend again either. They hit the road, and for all I know, "Still They Ride" Funny thing though, it's almost like he never left, I still feel his presence wherever I go. So anyway my point is, "Don't Stop Believing" just because you can't see something, If you feel it, then I am certain it must be real! It is possible that two, can become one in spirit. That's "The Power Of Love" as Huey Lewis would say...Oh yea, just remember, If you don't get it, then forget it, I've Had My Share Of Life's Ups And Downs and I realize that some things, just aren't meant to be... The last thing on earth I want to do is to "go on together living a lie" just because "Neither One of Us Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye," Gladys Knight sang that so beautifully, don't you think? Oh, BTW "I Got A brand New Pair Of Roller Skates" that I can't use now, it seems I lost the "Brand New Key" on that dreadful day Sluggo showed up to smash me. Oh well, Melanie doesn't sing much anymore so I guess the skates may have been a bad idea anyway...Who knows and does it matter anyway??? Hmmm... Oh no, Mr. Bill it seems I have to run now, you see there's this guy, and I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style, so now I should go listen. Maybe, Roberta Flack knew that it was better to have someone "Killing Me Softly With His Song" than to let Sluggo kill me with a hammer over and over. LOL I hope you enjoyed my sad story, but please remember...Everybody's got at least one good one! Maybe someday I can sing you a story about "Living In Two Different Worlds." I think that's already been done too! I could go on forever but I won't, I will just say this, ouch! Not to worry, it's just that well, sometimes, l feel as though I am Still being smashed by that stupid hammer. I guess some memories are forever!

Bill
Hi Wahwah. Can you sing some more to me? Nothing to hide, believe what I say.

Wahwah
Uh, Oh... Sluggo must have run away with Mr. Bill...Oh Nooooooooooo!

Wahwah
Oh Nooooo again, Sluggo says he's had it up to here with all this blogging. You should see the computer screen now, it's horizontal and very hard to see anything other than a horizontal light. I've heard of flat screens but, I didn't realize I would someday have one. He just took out that great big hammer and slammed it! Oh well, at least I got out of the way in time...

Wahwah
Hey Mr. Bill, I was just thinking about how some would do anything "For The Love of Strange Medicine" I wonder if Steve Perry knows I've been sneaking from his cabinet all these years???? I also wonder if he would ask for reimbursement??? Now that would be my pleasure! Tee hee, I get so messed up just thinking about it! Oh crap, Sluggo's back, See ya next time if I don't get squashed! "Be Good To Yourself!"

Wahwah
Oh, no, my mistake again, it wasn't Sluggo's motorcycle after all, only a search helicopter looking for Sluggo again. It seems he slugged Mr. Gill by mistake! He doesn't know how to spell ya know, not to mention is also hard of hearing... Anyway, you should have a good head start by now. Sorry if I startled you. Oh well, I must get back to what I was doing... Steve Perry is about to sing to me again. Enjoy your "Escape" Mr. Bill...

Wahwah
Oh nooooooooooo Mr. Bill, "We're standing face to face, a different time a different place" Sluggo won't be pleased if he finds out I got the "Wedding Bell Blues" "Whoa, I thought that I could hide away, but the lonely walls kept closing in, I only came back to say, life ain't nothin' without a friend" " Why should I feel so sad thinking of times when life was a smile? I've dreamed of turning back time to memories so dear, Now I'm here where I must go on" "For the love of strange medicine" Mr. Bill... It seems that I "Can't Stop" "I Am" "Missing You" "When you're In Love For The First Time" "Forever Right Or Wrong" (Loves like a river) As Supreme as this may sound Baby, "I Hear A Symphony" Oh, forgive me,"You'd Better Wait" my mistake, that was just a "Melody" Guess I was only "Captured By The Moment" "My My My" "Makes No Difference" "Anyway" "It's Only Love" You Should Be Happy" Oh, no... My mistake again "It's Just The Rain" Don't get me wrong, I'll be "Missing You" if you should "Go Away" So "Don't Tell Me Why You're Leaving" as we already know Sluggo is apt to show up at an given moment and we all know what would happen next...So "Listen To Your Heart" "Stand Up" (Before It's Too Late) I know you'll be "Running Alone" but just remember "If You Need Me, Call Me" "One More Time" but I must warn you, Sluggo might throw the both of us "Against The Wall" if he were to catch us here together... Which brings me to a question I've been meaning to ask...Is Sluggo made of clay like you Mr. Bill? Just curious...Oh well, I must take my "Foolish Heart" and place it back on the shelf. "Faithfully" I must go on to face the world once again. So, "Be Good To Yourself" Mr Bill, and "Oh... Sherri" sounds like a nice girl, you may want to call her up and ask her out. I mean, you never know, right? Oh nooooooo, I think I hear Sluggo's motorcycle rounding the corner as we speak... Run Mr. Bill, Run!

Bill
Strung out and hung up on you Wahwah

Bill
You dont sound so old wahwah. You sound hot. You sure do know your SP lyrics.

Wahwah
Oh Noooooooooooo Mr. Bill...If Sluggo sees this he will squash the both of us! First he'd find you and start singing "She's Mine, All Mine" just before he smashes you with that great big hammer and then it would be bye, bye, bye, Suzie, So long for me! As painful as it may sound, maybe we should go "Separate Ways" and just pretend we never met. I realize we'll never change "What Was" because it's "Too Late" no need to wonder "Who's Crying Now" I think the answer is obvious! Oh well, At least I'll always remember you and me and our "Summer of Love" or was it spring? "Anyway" where was I? Oh yea, I'm just a city girl living in a lonely world who can't stop believing in Steve Perry, In other words It's hard to love somebody, especially when they don't belong to you, cause their loving someone else, know what I mean??? What's left "After You Fall??? "Ask The Lonely" After all, "Only The Young Can Say' there's still a chance to turn this around. When you get to be my age you begin to wake up wondering if there's still a chance to turn the corner in time to get to the bathroom in time..."I learned so much from you and I thank you!" Least that's what I told Steve, ok, ok, in a dream I had but it sounded good anyway! I should go away for now before Sluggo shows up again. In the meantime, Have Faith, Believe, cause "Somewhere There's Hope" so stop your self before you start "You'd Better Wait" don't look back, don't lose heart cause somewhere there's love! Somewhere, Somewhere...

Bill
Hi Wahwah. I'm cuckoo for you.

wahwah
Hi again Bill, I see you must be as cuckoo for Steve Perry as the rest of us. I myself love him too. Just keep the thread going so maybe he'll take a look someday! If you need friends all you have to do is be nice here, we do have a sense of humor! Anyway, just checking in for the latest and I see it's you again, Oh well, nothing new but I still have faith!!! How bout you cuckoo???

Bill
Cuckoooooo. Cuckooooo.

lovemso
What else can you expect from someone who cannot relate to music or language???? Hi Bill... Hope you're having great fun while the rest of us are having more!

Bill
Cuckoo, Cuckoo.

"Some are believers, some are lost, their lost and alone, some are deceivers their soul's been sold, for the love of strange medicine..." Steve Perry fans not only Believe, We Believe in what is! It appears Mr.Bill is in desperate need of another dose of something....! It's O.K. Bill, we understand... Damaged brain cells left you to spend your last to cents in hopes of getting another rush of negativity! I do hope that someday you will find a better prescription, at a more reasonable rate... And as Steve Perry fans know, The love of strange medicine has nothing to do with drugs, The title is simply a metaphor. Maybe someday Bill, your brain will begin to understand things of that nature...Till then Have a great life! If loving Steve Perry is Cuckoo, then you may count me in... And Oh No! Lookout Mr. Bill... it's that mean old guy Sluggo again and he's got a hammer! Oh Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Bill
Cuckoo. Cuckoo.

30 year perry fan
I have not heard anything else yet, still waiting.Also who ever that was who wrote to Bill on march 31 @ 19:31 you have said it right! I would have to agree with every thing you said. It is hard to help those who do not wish to better themselves but there is no reason not to wish it for them. OH, one more thing, to bill, if you really miss joe, go write with him elsewhere so you'll have you buddy to chat with. Us fans will have eachother to chat with so dont worry , it wont be lonely.

Cc
I was wondering if anyone heard anything since Steve Perry did the interviews in February? I saw a photo of him taken at the airport a couple of weeks ago and he looks soooooooo great! His hair is long again and he has lost a lot of weight. The guy on facebook said he was so nice! I wish I could meet him someday... I hope he is gearing up for a come back! That would be so cool!!!

Crazy??? Come on, Mr Bill, excuse me, but, Oh No! It sounds as if you were hit by Sluggo one too many times. All one has to do to see that is look at the previous postings to see what the trouble is here... It seems you are still hating on Steve Perry Fans because they found something through His music that you couldn't even fathom...Way Too Deep for someone such as you I guess. You might consider another hobby as music and language are not something you understand entirely! Mud slinging or snuff spitting may be more enjoyable for someone of your caliber... Maybe you should try going back to elementary school? Sounds like your about the right age for that! If you don't like who you are, instead of trying to intimidate others, (which by the way you are not good at) You could always find some means of positive self improvement. You know life is unkind to everyone in some way. Don't be jealous of success, instead, reinvent yourself so you may become successful! Steve Perry fans say Steve Perry Rocks! How do you choose to be remembered???

Bill
Sell crazy someplace else. We're all stocked up here.

Steve Perry is not God Mr. Bill, He is an angel or pilgrim among many so to speak, who's messages of love, hope and faith and forgiveness are still heard loud and clear by many fans around the globe who are open to listening without judging and making false accusations about someone we don't know... Only a true musician or music lover would understand that statement. People become fans depending simply on what they believe in, how they interpret language of the artist, and their taste in musical sound. So say what you like about Steve Perry fans, I like so many others have conceived the light of his beliefs displayed through music and have to say, the man is beautiful!!! If you don't like Steve Perry you need to look within yourself and ask some serious questions. I mean really, jealousy just isn't a good reason to hate! If you awaken one day to find yourself surrounded by darkness, try listening to "Be Good To Yourself" and I mean take in every lyric and think about how Steve has handled his career in the past. It will get you off your pity pot and have you hearing your very own theme song in your head as you put on a smile and walk out the door realizing everyone feels beaten at one time or another, it's how you treat yourself as a result of the torture that determines ones true character! That is when your True Colors as some would say, begin to shine through, you have to determine which colors are truly appealing. If you search for happiness, the small pleasures in life are great! Some are too small to see until you stay focused long enough for them to grow into something more beautiful than you could ever dream. Hate feeds grief and anger in the soul of the hater, Not appealing at all! Make it a beautiful week everyone!

Bill
Well, I'll leave you drones to your god worship.

Dee Dee
I am oh-so excited about Mr. Perry's next production... He is one phenomenal artiste! And to those pessimists out there.... Yea, you got it, don't stop believing!

Nicely put Kaj! How could anyone be disappointed in Steve Perry after all he's done so far...Only someone with absolutely no taste for music would say anything negative about Steve! In other words, don't mind them, either they are simply clueless about what makes a great musician or vocalist. Ultimately they will find another site to pick their fights as they realize you can't fight with reality...The reality is that Steve Perry is loved by very, very many who know how to handle the child like behavior some of these haters display...Forgive them, They know not what they say, they only think they do! The proof is there if you know what truth is!!! Steve Perry is awesome!!! And as for the haters, They don't even like themselves, that's the real reason they say the things they do. They only feel good when putting someone else down. Unfortunate for them, Steve Perry lovers see that!

Kaj
How can anyone be disappointed of Perry after all he has given us from his time in Journey and his solo albums. I read at RandyGoodrum.com that Randy is writing with Steve Perry again so Perry is obviously making new music. I will wait and in the meantime, i will listen to all the stuff he has done up to now.

Ann
I would have to say 1.Against the Wall 2.Anyway

Dissapointed Perry Fan
Well Joe is a tool, but he seems to have gotten it mostly right. I don't think there ever will be a new album and I think we've been made fools of once again.

30 year perry fan
As we are all waiting to hear the offical word of a new album or not, why don't we all just remember that a true fan is a fan forever. I will not dwell on when or if there will be a release but continue to love all that Mr. Perry has shared with us, and keep hoping for just 1 more album.. Anyone care to share their favorite song from either of his solos? I for one am partial to 2 songs. 1) You better wait, and 2) When you're in love, (for the first time)off of strange medicine. Also Running Alone off street talk.

Bubbles14
Ya know Bill we get tired of u and joes words so for one go suck a cucumber and maybe when ur at it u can talk to joe to ur "buddy" as u like to say.

Nothing in stone, only what Steve said in his interviews last month. He is considering though...Say's he has many new songs he would love to put out there. Also says he misses performing. Who knows? I do hope we hear something new this year. Even if we do not get a new CD, it will never change my opinion of Steve Perry. I hope that whatever decisions he makes concerning his future will bring the happiness he deserves. I can certainly understand why he keeps a low profile these days as the wolves are always at the door! Vicious, hateful, and very cruel...Always someone looking to destroy the name of fame. Tabloid paparazzi thrive on the misery of the ones we admire and will stop at nothing to get a story, even if they have to set someone up or make false accusations... Pathetic, although I am certain that life has a way of coming back around to those people just like a boomerang... Anyway, I do hope Steve will at the very least produce another CD. Either way, I still Love the man!

Dissapointed Perry Fan
So, now that all the drama is over, does anyone know when the new album is coming out?

Bill
I for one, will miss Joe's honest postings. What will all of you do now? It seemed responding to his postings was your whole life. As Joe said, perhaps now you will get some.

Bubbles14
I hope every body who reads this board knows joe is probably not posting anything else because he has nothing to say back to us we rule he drules every body knows that PERRY ON!

30 year perry fan
AMEN!!!! GOOD BYE JOE!!!!! But before you leave, just a bit of 411 for you .No, I am not a male nurse and I am in great health, and under 40 you butt munch I unlike you, Have a life and I am not the delusional one. And since you have posted your last message for the next year, I don't think you will respond so goes to show when you can't take the heat ya leave the kitchen! LOL!!! Sucker.

Joe
Well, I do grow tired of this board, so this is my last message for one year. In one year I will check in to see how everyone likes SP's new album. I'll bet it will rock. Or after a long period of jerking us around some more we will see two or three demos on yet another greates hits album. See you in the Spring of next year. Mark your calendars for March 20 of next year.I know you will be holding your breath waiting for me. I have enjoyed our time together immensely. I hope you will all now get lives.

StephenRayPerryLover
For the Love of Strange Medicine is NOT about drug addiction, necessarily.Steve, himself has said it is about material stuff like cars, houses, etc. The strange medicine that SUPPOSEDLY makes one happy and keeps one striving for. You can find this interview on youtube. It is called "The Kitchen is Closed." This is the only response I will give to you Joe as I have read your posts and do feel you like the negative attention. You are like a child DESPERATE for attention. So desperate that even negative attention is enough attention for you. Therefore I think that if we all stop responding and giving attention to Joe, he should eventually GO AWAY and take his disturbed mind elsewhere, hopefully to a shrink.

Joe
Dont stop believin!

Euracry Bayba
Hey Joe, There you go again making derogatory comments about someone you don't even know...Your problem seems to be that you think you are a mister know it all when, in reality all you know is how to seek attention by making false statements regarding Steve Perry. I have heard his latest interviews and he never claimed positively that he was making a comeback, only that he is considering. What is wrong with that? He has the right to express uncertainty about future plans. Ha, I'll bet you can't tell me your plans for next week! If you did have plans, how can you be certain that life doesn't get in the way of those plans? What kind of person are you to insist Steve Perry is in anyway, a messed up person??? Sounds again like you can't stand looking in the mirror, so instead, You make pot shots at those who are successful instead of cleaning up your own garbage! Steve will do as he pleases concerning the future and as for his fans, we still have hope that he will give us another shot of his wonderfully strange medicine that keeps us floating for years at a time! If he doesn't, we still have what he has done in the past... It matters not what lies you speak about Steve, The rest of us know the truth when we read it!

Joe
How do you know he is as good as ever? By the way FTLSM is about drug addiction. Hmmm, I wonder if that could be SP's problem. Look, it's like I've said before I would love for SP to release something new, but do a search for interviews since 1998. That's 12 Years. He keeps saying how much he misses singing and he's sketching something. Blah, blah blah. And what does he come out with? Nothing. All I'm saying is if you're not going to do anything, just say so. Stop saying that you are and then don't do anything. I hate Journey with Arnel but they just went Platinum (1 million copies). FTLSM only sold 500,000 and that was 14 years ago when SP was hot. Journey won't take him back with record sales like they have now and SP would be so insecure about releasing something new because it would probably only sell 300,000 copies. Sorry, but SP isn't going to take that risk so he will just fade away. Which is fine but stop saying you're gonna do something.

Euracry Bayba
There once was a boy named Joe blow, he must have been thirteen or so, he just couldn't help it when he left all those comments that prove just how little he knows. Joe blow is a little bit weird, he says things no one wants to hear, he attacks all the names of those who have fame cause he can't stand to look in the mirror. Oh well, what can you expect from a kid who is starved for attention. Steve Perry is certainly not effected by comments made by kids like you little Joe. If anything I am sure he would pity you as you appear to be so desperate that you try to gain attention by putting others down. Very sorry for you Joe! Steve Perry is still as great as ever. Go do some research Joe, it may assist you in growing up instead of blowing up. Seriously, it's amazing what you may learn if you are willing and able. Oh no, maybe there lies the problem... Are you able? Some would do anything "all for the love of strange medicine" as Steve Perry so beautifully put it. Joe was merely seeking a taste of his very own strange medicine so, I thought this dose was essential to his well being. Hope you feel better now Joe!

Joe
LOL. Then you must, by now, know how delusional you've become. Or maybe one doesn't know when that happens. I suppose you wouldn't. I mean Jeez, you really still believe a new album is coming out? If you are a 30 year fan you must be near 60 and your arteries must be hardening. No doubt you are probably a male nurse anyways. Uggghh!

30 year perry fan
Hey Joe, just how old are you anyway? 6, 10? oh wait you cant be that old, my niece has more brains then you! If he has demos, he is obviously singing. Oh, one more thing, Being in the health care field myself, My medical training tells me you need medical attention for your ptsd. You obviously didnt get enough attention as a kid.

Joe
Sticks and stones may break my bones but Steve Perry will never sing again.

wahwah
Just another Joe seeking approval from anyone. Obviously, Joe is seriously jealous and in (desperate) need of attention.. So for all you little old Joe's out there, You should find more creative ways to gain attention. Try blogging on the American Idol page, you should find the kind of attention you seek there! As for smoke and mirrors Joe, Blow smoke up someone else's behind and watch yourself in the mirror as you do... You look awfully pathetic when you do that Joe!

gluchnurse
Come on STeve! Sade just released her first album in 10 years and topped the charts, and she is in her 60's. Julie Andrews, whose legendary voice was destroyed by botched vocal chord surgery is actually going to do a concert per an interview on the Daily Show. She jokes that she has a couple 'good bass notes left'. At some point, perfectionism metamorphes into self doubt, and then a vicious circle begins. Bring in some of those phenomenal collaborators that you worked so well with like T. Miner, a co-producer, and stop fussing! You say that you have this void by not performing and that it hurts. The way to assuage that pain is to just DO IT! We are your fans. WE don't expect you to be 30 years old. We don't want a rehash of the 1980's. We'll appreciate whatever you want to share about the place you are in today. With your talent, drive, craftsmanship, and quest for quality, it is sure to be amazing. So close your eyes, take that leap of faith, set a hard deadline-and get going. Do an HBO special and just market the DVD if you don't want to tour-go on Oprah, Dr. Phil to promote if you don't want the production hassles with concert venues. I'll wear my TiVo out, I promise, and buy enough CD's to make up for the ones I'll overuse. Just don't make yourself a self-fulfilling prophesy as your last legacy-about the one last album that you never quite got around to making. You are just too good and just too special a performer to have that be the footnote to your career!

30 year perry fan
First, Bill, go suck an egg, All I am saing is nobody wants to hear the crap. I never said he wasn't entitled to an oppinion And I know that joe can speak for himself so why are you butting in? OH, thats right you are just feeling left out. Loser... Second, Joe, I never said anything about your spelling you got confused

Dissapointed Perry Fan
As annoying as Joe is, I hate to admit it, but I fear there will never be a new album. Probably a better chance of the two Cory's going back on the air.

Bill
You go Joe. Hey 30 year perv, did you ever hear of freedom of speech. He can say what he likes.

Joe
How could I quit when I know how much I annoy you. And I have to stick around to give you your spelling lesson still. I thought at first it said 30 year old perv.

Annie
I agree with 30 year perry fan. He was and always will be the voice of journey. It's hard to mess with perfection.

30 year pery fan
YA know what joe, your not getting the picture are you? Let me clarify for you, NOBODY WANTS TO HERE YOUR CRAP ANYMORE. Did you get it this time? Just quit now. Like I said before, album or no album he is still the voice.

Annie
If you listen to the interview with the dj from scotland he says that he has some new material that he will be recording soon. He doesn't say may be recording, he states will be recording. Although he doesn't give a date, just says soon.

Joe
In one of his recent interviews he discussed Don't Stop Believing and then said there would be new stuff to remember him by. Now he's backpedaling LIKE ALWAYS. I think Neal must have kicked his ass one day and he's been whimpering ever since.

30 year perry fan
Joe, how do you know, factually, that the talk of a new album came from Steve Perry himself? Everyone knows that rumors can start anywhere at any time. If he comes out with a new album, Great for everybody! If not then crap happens and we hold on to the great material he has gracoiusly shared with us.So, stop saying that he is jerking around. Remember, you are not walking in his shoes, and dont really know what his plans are.

Joe
I have heard Brand New Start. Awesome. Amazing. I'm serious. I never said his voice was shot. I'm just saying he's jerking us all around again and he must have serious issues. I'm not sure what they are. But jeev, stop saying how much you miss singing and performing and that you're planning on doing something when you're really not.

Person
im getting anxious

30 year perry fan
OK, enough is enough, any one who doesn,t like steve perry just go away and leave us fans alone,. The truth is, you non fans must have no life because you are wasting your time with insults that noone wants to read. So grow up already. Also has any of you who think his voice is shot looked on youtube and listened to a brand new start featuring steve perry as back ground vocals? And to the fans as well, check out this song. Hes still got it!!!!!!

Joe
To 5 Year Perry Fan. What gonna happen to me? You have me shaking in my boots. Maybe I can't win a singing contest but you'll never win a spelling contest. Steve Perry's new lyrics: I'm forever yours ..... NOT

Dave of Spain
Joe, you are the man. Perry fans should start carrying their fishing nets to Lochness Monster of Scotland to catch Nessie out of the Loch. The new album for Steve Perry is becoming a JOKE NOW and a myth to the road of obscurity.

diane pletcher
iwould like tomeet steve perry and ask him to make my songs into musicc

5 year perry fan
Well i bet you are right 30 year perry fan i wonder if joe did find a cliff yet anyway, joe i dont think you should be talking about steve perry that way cause if you do bad things are coming your way. Even though i have only been a perry fan for 5 years i know one thing steve perry does not have a craked voice. I bet you couldnt win a singing contest against your 3 year old son thats if u even have one.

Bill
I'm with Joe. This guys a tool. We'll know one way or another within the next 7 years because hes not going to have a new album at 68.

30 year perry fan
Hey Joe, Find Your Cliff Yet? Time for you to get over it. If Steve Perry does or does not come out with another album Us TRUE fans will still be fans. As for you Take your smoke and mirrors and stick em!

lovemso
Dear Joe, There was also an interview he did for Scotland last week, where he said he is very excited about the new songs he has written and is thinking about recording them. He is simply undecided...Joe, Blow your smoke somewhere else!!! The mirrors are only what you perceive. It is very possible he just may do that, after all, how many of the greats disappear from public view only to resurface in their later years? Most of them do! Steve Perry was much more than a one hit wonder as we all know, not to mention full of surprises! Take your hopeless opinion elsewhere, after all Steve's fans "Don't Stop Believing" just because Joe did! I suggest you go listen to all of the interviews he did last week before deciding that you know better than anyone else...

Joe
I just listened to the Planet Rock Interview. You can find it on You Tube. SP says he's dabbling but hasn't gone into the studio. More smoke and mirrors. I told you so.

lovemso
Steve has been doing phone interviews for the UK for the last few days...We may just get our wish concerning his comeback!!!

Tanya Campbell
Steve perry could do a cover album of all his favourite songs and I would still treasure it.It would be personal because it would be all the songs that inspired him but with his signiture voice and music on it.Somewhere there is hope that oneday he will be inspired to make another dvd but for now I hold onto all the precious memories and joy he has given me through all his cds and dvds of the past Thankyou Steve Perry for your beautiful gift you so unselfishly give to the world.........Looking forward to the new 2010 cd?

Lovemso
Funny while I was posting the last post Anyway You Want It began to play on the radio...How cool is that? Come back Steve, That's what I want!!!

lovemso
The interview was great! It was so nice hearing his voice again and he sounds great...I am so happy to know he is well. As for now there are no hints of when and if he may do something new, Only that he thinks about it! As for now he has not been in any studio doing any recording. Don't give up though, it sounds as if he misses recording. In the mean time Don't Stop Believing as we continue to support Steve Perry... We love you Steve!!!

lovemso
For anyone reading this today, Nickey Horne of Planet Rock has just announced they are hoping to interview Steve Perry via phone at 7pm uk time. better pop over and listen! Fingers Crossed...

lovemso
Blue, as I said, no one said anything about you specifically, just the link! We all come to these places for new info about Steve Perry just as you, I only said I don't trust the link, nothing to do with you personally!

Blue
Lovesmo, I am also leaving this forum because the headline is about SP releasing a new album end of 2009. And as I posted in the other forum, it was someone else's post 'about me' that made me decide to leave the forum so it was nothing you have said.

lovemso
Hi again Blue, If you read what I wrote on the other post, you will see that I didn't say I got the virus there, I was simply saying there are many forums you should be wary of as one of the other girls had said that link is where her trouble began...You may want to read carefully what I did post. Some of those forums, when neglected for a time do become places where hackers step in and take over to harass the unsuspecting, I simply warned for people to be careful. If you do not have the proper protection on you computer you may be asking for trouble, that's all. Just saying! Anyway, again, no need to take it personal Blue, I was just offering a few words of caution. Crap happens when you least expect it. You are very lucky if it has never happened to you. I've taken a few hits like that in my time, so when I noticed the last post about Steve Perry was august of last year I decided just to continue the waiting game until I see something more promising. Better safe than sorry.

Blue
I'm a follower in that account and have been for some time and my computer has not been sabataged nor has my identity been stolen! I think this account was set up by SP or his reps to get a consolidated tally of all those who might purchase his new CD if he were to release one. This account may very well be authentic because the news last year was about his new CD and, just maybe, because the twitter account has a very low following, that is the reason there is no 2010 news of this release. So I'm just suggesting that people join this account, then maybe there will be news of a CD release late Spring or Summer. I understand fears of identity theft, you can always use a fake name on the internet. And Lovesmo, you said in the other forum your computer got a virus from a different Perry101 Easter Family link.

lovemso
Heads up everyone, I am sure Blue meant well, but that twitter sight is said to be a virus waiting to happen. Do not sign up to follow him on that sight as one girl posted she had to spend quite a bit of money to cleaning up after that mistake. While I love Steve Perry, I am very cautious about signing up to be a member of anything just because his name is attached.

Blue
Follow SP on Twitter at www.twitter.com/steveperry101. This account is not found in Twitter's 'find people' and has not been verified. Twitter is supposed to be fixing this problem. We just need ALL his fans to join, then maybe we will hear new music. Signed, just a fan.

I have been a journey fan since I was about seven when i wandered off a bit past where mydad said i could go. you see he was an accomplished gladiolous hibridizer and was judging the annual sacramento show held at the garden and arts building right down from , i believe it was the sac. memorial auditorium . Already loving music , singing harmony with my parents at grandpas church at the age of four ,& playing drums at five I followed beatiful harmonies in the distance until i reached the block that my dad said not to cross . I thought about it a minute but couldn"t resist getting closer to this ever loudning and most intriguing style of music . When i finally arrived at the front entrance i rememberplaying "air drums" and trying to peer through a partially open door when a kind security worker said " Brother , Do you know who that is in there ? " Thats that new journey band & mmm mmm arent they somethin' he graciously grabbed my shoulder moving me inside closing the front door behind us . Being from a christian family full of preachers & gospel singers , it would be a few more years till i was allowed to have a rock and roll record , but when that time came i asked if it could be the song lights instead of a fine elvis presley record some how to my dismay i ended up with the pablo cruise record aplace in the sun . because some of the guitar parts sounded like that "Acid rock " . but on my next birthday I was given evolution & soon after learned every track by heart vocals as well as drums My thanks to journey : For an early lesson in what a good rythym and blues song should be like . for teaching me to sing from deep within my dyaphram as well as from my heart and soul to anyone lending an ear or needing a song. i ONCE HAD THE RARE OPPORTUNITY TO THANK STEVE PERRY IN PERSON AT A SMALL RESTRAUNT ABOVE KAWHEA RESERVOIR AS HE WALKED IN WHILE i WAS HAVING A BIRTHDAY MEAL WITH MY BROTHERS FAMILY . BELIEVING THAT THE LADY HE WAS WITH WAS HIS MOM , I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE RUDE TO INTERRUPT THEYRE SEEMINGLY ENJOYABLE CONVERSATION SO I SETTLED FOR A SMILE AND A NOD THE NEXT TIME HE LOOKED IN OUR DIRECTION .mY SISTER IN LAW SAID SHE SAW HIM SMILE BACK.

Happy Birthday Steve Perry! You will be in my heart forever...I wish you all the joy and happiness you so greatly deserve. Love you so, more than you'll ever know!

Dear Steve, I want to say I wish you a happy 2010 along with a very happy birthday. I think you know how much you are loved already but incase you dont, just look around on all the sites that worship you every single day. Your fans are praying that you give us word on your new album and maybe a tour to go along with it. Well you enjoy your special day with family, and friends, and remember we will enjoy it too!!!

Happy Birthday! Mr. Perry! May this be the best year ever for you and those you love. We, your fans, hope that you can make this a wonderful year for us, too, by releasing newly recorded music. We're eager to hear anything you want to throw at us-because we know that you are diligent about your craft, meticulous in your production techniques, and convey more emotion in a single note than many singers can stuff into an entire song. Have a wonderful, safe, and healthy 2010!

Yea right.

Missy in Ottawa,Ont.
Happy, Happy Birthday!!!! Steve! As you have heard, many times over I'm sure-this NEW release??? will be a sure-fire hit. All your fans have waited a long time for this, and it will have been worth the wait. I will be the first in line to buy it, of this I have no doubt.I work in a college, and have all the new students who are in their teens and early 20's listening to your music, with Journey and solo, and they love it! So, I'd like to think that I am keeping the fires burning, so to speak. Luv U Always! Missy-----Oh, and when you tour for this new release,,,please, remember Ottawa, Canada, it will be a sell-out, I promise!!!!! Enjoy your B-Day! XO

Hello to all of the Steve Perry fans out here. I agree with wherewereu. Lovin' Steve always! Wanted to come out and wish Mr. Perry an early HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Leah Gluchoff
Ending 2009 in the best way possible-listening to your music, Mr. Perry. Gives me pleasure, hope, comfort-and as always, I am in awe of your talent and the generosity with which you shared yourself via your music-your experiences, heartaches, hopes, and dreams all came through in your writing, your lyrics, showmanship-in the complete professional package that you are as a musician and producer. Please know that we as fans will be thrilled to hear whatever you are working on now! Doesn't matter the genre; R&B, standards, rock, showtunes, gospel-we don't care!!-we just want to experience the world through your eyes in 2010-and we'll be lining up to buy another piece of magic that only you can produce. Happy New Year to you, sir-and an early Happy Birthday!!

You're in our hearts always Steve Perry! Steve Perry we love you and want you know You own the voice that touches our soul Every soft whisper, each word of faith Is always received in love's resting place Happy 2010!

Hey Joe, You sound like an all around nice guy... Now that my friend is real bs! Steve Perry is the man, is a pity so many are jealous of the attention he receives without even trying. He has no need to engage in dealing with people who seek attention through making negative comments at the very mention of his name. So carry on making a fool of yourself if you must, we shall carry on with our belief that he will release something new. I Love Steve Perry! Sorry if that offends anyone, on second thought... Nah, I Love Steve Perry! How bout the rest of you Perry Fans?

30 year perry fan
Well well well, doesn't look like joe found a high enough cliff to jump from so I will say this, Joe shut up grow up and stop downing Steve. You really need to get a life for the fact is, you say you would like to see Steve come back with another album so instead of being an ahole be a REAL fan or find your cliff.

Kaj
Id rather be a yeasayer than I naysayer so hellyeah! there will be a new Perry record in 2010. Merry Xmas everybody

Marylou
I have been a Perry fan from the beginning, and certainly wish if Steve is going to release a new CD he would give his fans a little Christmas Present.....HINT ! It would be something to look forward to. I have had the pleasure of seeing Steve perform with Journey twice, and would not have missed it for anything. These days, we can watch so much on youtube and even buy a few DVDs but we would LOVE a new CD, DVD or anything Steve wishes to do. I have always admired him for many things including his love for his mother who passed before the Raised on Radio Album and tour. Steve had to deal with a lot of grief, and I know how that feels. Sometimes it takes a long time to come to grips with something so tragic. I wish Steve would check these boards and know how many fans he still has. Of course I am sure he has plenty to keep him busy, but if he really IS going to do something, OR decided not to do anything, it would be nice to set his fans straight. If he announced today that he was going to release a CD, I would have my order in for it tomorrow. I would not care what was on it as long as it had his voice. Perry ON !!

Here I am "Missing You" Steve Perry. You can bet I'll buy anything with Steve Perry's Voice on it...As for Joe Steve Perry didn't do anything to hurt his fans. Sometimes life gets tough and people need to step back and take a look at where they are heading. I guess until it happens to you you could never understand that. True Steve Perry fans understand and respect that. I feel privileged to have been able to witness his magic first hand. No way to describe that feeling! Your true fans are Forever Yours, "Faithfully" Steve Perry!!

steve perrys music is special ,he knows what he wantsin his music ,. hesolder but he stil steve perry of journey to me , aspecial person some 1to holdon too merry xmas steve

Joe, you sound just like my exhusband, No- wonder why I divorced him!!! you my friend are a bummer!!!

cutlets29
All I know is steve came out and told his fans that the Hawaii concerts were false and he would do the same about anything else. Awhile ago in a Vegas paper it said steve perry was to release his new album in feb,2010. Somethings coming because artist have confirmed that they are working with perry on a album! Perry also said in a interview that he would like to sing with sada and her album is coming out in feb 2010. Maybe hes will be on some of her tracks I guess we will just have to wait and see but I know somethings going down, going down!!!

I'm jumping out of my skin wanting the release of a new album from Steve Perry!! I cant wait to hear his voice...remember when he first started with Journey and THE VOICE was unreal. But I have to say that I love his voice that is deeper. It is incredibly sexy listening to him sing deep. I never had the opportunity to see Journey in concert & I kick myself about it! Looking forward big time to the release of the album! Hope that someone announces it when it happens!!! I will be first in line to buy it!! :)

Joe
Wow. Everyone still believing in fairy tales? SP has been pulling this BS for Decades. You can be sure, there will be no new album. I think this guy has a serious drug problem or something. Does anyone wonder why SP is all alone in this world? No family, no nothing. Because he's a tool. I think there is no better voice on the planet, but come on, this guy has been screwing his fans and bandmates over for decades. What's his problem? Oh, " miss singing terribly". Then sing ahole and stop stringing everyone along.

dntblvu
I believe he's putting out a new album because I've not seen where he's denied it. He probably has to get everything lined up and until everything looks good, then he'll say something. Suspense helps the anticipation is what makes it sell. And I'm gonna buy!

caitlin
you're the best steve love you so much you will always be the voice, my idol,and my hero in my heart and in my eyes forever.

cutlets29
Who ever pulled this mean trick should be shot and by me! I know that he will be coming out with an album russ miller confirmed that hes working with him. I still think there is some truth to the latest news only because I think steve would have put out a statement either way just so his fans know the truth. I guess we just have to wait and see. I believe he will do a major tour across the us if all this falls into place!!!Perry on!!!

Ziggy, agree that Steve wouldn't post it on Wikipedia-so far he has only used Fan Asylum or in person interviews with legitimate, verifiable news sources. Was just hoping that the Wikipedia post had come from someone who had encountered a legitimate Sony press release. But, apparently, was another hoax or 'whisper down the lane' type rumor-like the May, 2009 alleged concert in Hawaii that he had to go on Fan Asylum and refute. He didn't do his usual holiday greeting on Fan Asylum this year. Hope that January 2010 he will post his message, and maybe, PLEASE, either confirm that the music he personally said he is recording will actually be released OR, say once and for all that he has no plans for the album so we'll all be able to rest easy! (Until we encourage him to release the recordings anyway...At this point, I'd be happy with a DVD/VH1/HBO special if he doesn't want to tour! Just want to see the man perform any way I can-and any type of music he cares to share...

Ziggy Stardust
The reason the info was pulled off Wikipedia is because the info was false. Anyone can add info to Wikipedia. Sony would not use Wikipedia as a place to post information especially about Steve Perry. Remember its all just rumor until Steve Perry himself makes the announcement.

Voice Mania
US Steve Perry New Studio Album - TBC 2010, this is still up on melodicrock.com The article that was on Wikipedia is no longer there, Sony got wind and pulled it. They are either hiding something and sweetie is coming out with one in Feb. Or they pulled it because it was not true. I just don't see Steve announcing it at this time. But, never say never....he might be putting out a CD, DVD, as far as a tour, maybe small one nighters. I just don't see him touring, he has a nice life now. Like a few shows here and there. We had him for a long time, He will always be THE VOICE, the one and only VOICE. Steve if you happen to read this, go to fanasylum and let your fans know, they have been faithful for so many years, at least give them something to believe in again. We LOVE YA MAN! whatever you got, you still got it!. I tell you it is in the voice, the smile and the eyes. Don't ever lose hope. And Don't EVER Stop Believing in yourself.

gluchnurse
Major confusion about the new album as of 11/23/09 in my book. Wikipedia had a post last week that he had signed with Sony for a release on Columbia Music with music videos-tour to be determined. But as of 11/23, the post had been removed from Wikipedia saying that Sony said no one had confirmed any thing of the sort. Can someone PLEASE give valid confirmation about whether he is really releasing an album? HE said in the CBC.CA inteview in July that he was recording-but recording isn't the same as actually being able to release or promote an album! Driving me crazy because I would dearly love to hear some new music, any music from the maestro!

I can't tell you what this does to me hearing that this might be happening soon!! I have been listening to Steve Perry since I was a 13 yr old girl. Now, many, and I do mean many, years later, I still listen to his beautiful voice every day. There is an album(cd) for every mood I am in. My favorite is Infinity, wait, Evolution, wait again, Departure, no maybe Escape, oh, what about Frontiers, ugh.. maybe I should mention ROR, but today I listened to Trial By Fire, uh oh, yesterday it was Street Talk and FTLOSM, oh I give up, I LOVE THEM ALL!!! I need to download new Steve Perry music now!! I never did see him live either, (one of the biggest regrets of my life as I had the chance twice but passed them up) this would be a dream come true to me. My 2 older sons already told me that they are coming with me if he tours (they are 20 and 18) and my 7 and 9 yr old sons love watching videos of Steve on Youtube with me. My 13 yr old son plays drums and learned many of my favorite Journey songs for me. Had the opportunity to get tickets to see Journey this summer for my birthday and said, "sorry, Journey doesn't exsist anymore without Steve up front." The nerve, they are just a cover of themselves without the one who made them great. Come on Steve, we need you back now!!! We have all been waiting a real long time. We love you and hope to see you soon.

RHONDA
Steve Perrys new album has just been confirmed and hes making a new video for it. Talk of a tour is still up in the air because his album is still in production. I knew he would pull through! Our Steve is coming back!!!

jose
i still blast journey all the time but with perry only! and his solo albums i need to hear the voice i cant wait and i hope its true new perry album 2010 please steve please!

cajun sue
I have always been a fan of Steve Perry.Even more so now.His words and voice is so beautiful,it touches the heart.He has a kind and tender heart.I am a happily married woman,but Steve and his songs are always on my mind.I wish him all the happiness in his life.Can't wait for his new C D.

cutlets29
Steve's album is coming out in 2010 I think around Feb. It was in a vegas paper, and also on a board where they have the dates of new albums being releases. To whoever said Perry last album with Journey was missing something! Go back and listen to trial by fire and you will find this a very emotional,beautiful,album. everything on this album is written from the soul of perry and written about love and loss within his 8 year absents from journey. When you love a woman is breathtaking. Perry,Caine,and Neal did a fantastic job on the album. By the way Caine! when you lie and say that Perry did not want to tour Europe in the middle 80's and say you dont know why! I'll tell you what you already knew. That was the time Perrys mother was very,very,sick and he did not want to leave her for fear of her dying. When you go on your new journey interviews start telling the truth and try to be a honest man like the voice himself!!! IDIOTS!!!

Anna
How does one "fake hip surgery"? Steve' "friends" bailed on him when he was at a very low point physically and began looking for another singer BEFORE even talking with him about it. I hope they do well with Arnel he seems like a nice guy but Journey will never be what it was with Steve Perry. I only hope he DOES come back as a solo act as I feel that is what he should have been all along!

alex stewart uk
cant wait for this album,steve perry is my favorite artist of all time,come on !!!!!!!!!!

whatwas77?
Can't wait for this release...I love Steve Perry! I realize there are many creatures on the planet who for whatever reason continue to put Steve Perry down. Funny thing is most of those children say they know who Steve Perry is continue to confuse him with all the other Steve Perrys of the world...Oh and lets not forget they love to spout out twisted comments without researching the truth first! Some people are simply starving for attention I guess. Anyone that puts aside having a private personal life in effort to share their amazing gifts with the world deserves respect! Unfortunately, there are those no talent individuals who wish to have there 5 minutes of fame no matter how ugly it makes them appear! Go figure???

diane pletcher
steve you are wonderful singer a voice like an angle steve ilove your music it comes right from your heart??

joeblow
that's all you do blow joe blow

Marylou
After the Oprah show, Steve showed his class by wishing the band well. I do hope he releases another album that is, if that's what he wants to do. If he's enjoying his retirement, so be it, but I would love to hear that beautiful voice once again.

30 year perry fan
The way I see this, 1. Steve Perry has the best voice of all times. 2. if you dont like him, go find something else to do then sit here and put him down. try a long walk off a short cliff. 3. If Steve puts out a new album there are millions of devoted fans that will be extremely happy, encluding myself. So, Joe, hope you get the point. Perry fans are forever! , Be patient and as they say, Perry on!!!!!!! We love ya Steve!

Joe
Perry 4 ever. What are you queer? Also KayCee, why would I be jealous of Steve Perry? I'm not even a musician? Actually, I love Steve Perry and his voice, but jeez, this guys got issues. Aren't you a little tired of being dissapointed year after year? Finally comes back in 1996 and fakes a hip surgery to get out of touring? Can't get along with anyone, never married and dissapears for 15 years. I would be thrilled if he put out a new album, but do you really think that is going to happen. He's going to jerk us around for another 10 years and then it will be too late. Sorry if the truth bothers you guys. Nothing would make me more happy than to eat my words but I really doubt I will.

perry4ever
this to joe no steve has all the puss you fuckin fuck

Anna
All we can do it hope and wait...wait...wait....wait...wait.....wait...wait......Please Steve don't keep us waiting any longer!

KayCee
Joe...go crawl back into that hole you came out of. You sound jealous dude. Neah Schon is an azz. His little band was nothing before Steve Perry.

Joe
Steve Perry is a selfish little pussy who runs into retirement every time Neal yells at him. Wa wa wa

newfan
I want this to be true. It will be a dream come true. And if he tours I will be there. Texas love you Steve.

rustyplum
All I can say is "IT'S ABOUT TIME!"

j
This is a long thread so I may have missed it if someone already posted this, but if you listen to this recent interview, Steve says it himself that he is in fact recording a new album: http://www.cbc.ca/q/uncut.html

cutlets29
Your welcome Leah, New release date for Perrys comeback solo album is Feb.2010. He wants everything perfect, afterall he is a perfectionist and he is not going to rush this. Thats our steve!!!

PERRYSLUV4EVER
HE WAS VOTED AS 1 OF D TOP 100 VOICES ON ROLLING STONE MAG. THERE MIGHT OF BEEN A JRNY B 4 S.P. BUT DID THEY HAVE HITS OR #1 SONGS ON THE CHARTS B 4 HIM NO!! SO TO RE EMPHASIZE WHAT I SAID "THERE MIGHT OF BEEN A JRNY B 4 STEVE BUT NO 1 KNEW OF JRNY TILL AFTER S.P. IF HE WASN'T AS GOOD WHY DID THEY REPLACED HIM W/ SOME 1 WHO SOUNDS LIKE HIM.

Rene' aka Perrygirl
Steve still has his faithful following in his corner. We have been waiting for a long time for this. There are many bands from that era that have come back and started making music again. Why not Steve Perry?? Of COURSE he still has it in him, his true fans still believe in him. That's a bunch of bull**** that his voice is trashed! We've all aged, it's part of life, but we're still vital human beings with contributions to give to society and to the world. His fans will embrace him and he will prove himself! I've seen him live with Journey and there is NO one like him in the world! This is the most exciting news! Any news about Steve spreads like wildfire among my "Perry" girls. We love you Steve and are looking forward to hearing some new stuff from you. It has been our hope, our prayer for all these years. We never "stopped believin'!"

1fitcaligirl
Counting the days until the new album is released and once again I hear the heaven that is Steve Perry's voice. Steve is truly blessed with "THE VOICE" of an angel. We will be truly blessed to hear it, yet again. Thank you Steve for all your generosity with your amazing talent and for all the years of phenomenal music (both vocally and lyrically). I am so doing my happy dance right now. I know Steve will not disappoint. He NEVER has. That prayer has been answered...now, I'll pray for a tour.

Leah GLuchoff
Anyone out there have any hard news about the reported new album? Sure hope that it wasn't just the January Playlist 'Best of' Album that they were talking about? Would love it if anyone has any new snippets-like release dates, label, format, what have you! Thanks for the reassurance, 'cutlets'!

Circus life under THE BIG TOP WORLD we all need "the clowns" to make us smile. I lost my sister/my friend to cancer, she suffered a very slow and painful death and there wasn't anything I could do to make her better, we buried her on her 31st birthday. Two months later I lost my Aunt who was more like a sister, we were almost the same age, her untimely death was due to drug and alcohol abuse. The three of us were very close and had many misadventures. Steve you were right there in the middle in song. We of course all had a serious crush on you, I still do. We sang all of your songs together our favorite to sing as a trio was "Lights." We sang it accapella in the stairwell of my garage apartment because the acoustics were perfect. Thank you for being a part of some very precious memories. I'm just now at the point where I can here your voice without breaking down. For a long while I avoided you, but now especially since I'm clean and sober I can truly appreciate your work as if each song is a masterpiece painting in my personal gallery in my heart. I'm forever your's, faithfully.

Cheri
I too have been a Steve Perry fan for 30 yrs. I doubt that there is a new recording coming though. If he intended to record he would have done so long before now. Seems someone claims to know for a fact that Steve is working on a new album year after year after year. I will continue to listen to the old stuff and believe a new on when I see it.

clayton g.
Steve, can't wait to buy your new album.Against what others said it would never happen I still continued to have faith over the years that one day you would bless us with your beautiful voice on a new album. One could only dream of a tour date schedule.You'd be surprised of how many Perry fans there are out there.God gave you a gift(voice) that we can never forget. Loyal fan for over 28 years

Jay
Thank you, Steve. I can hardly wait to hear your voice again. And while I would love for you to tour, just having new music from you is awesome enough.

andrea
Steve thank you soo much for comming back and and giving us more of you and your new music,Its almost a dream come true,cant wait the anticipation is driving me nuts..we love you,thank you for listening to your fans.

Jackie
It's about time!!!! Can't wait to hear your incredible voice!!!! Still gives me goosebumps!!!!

Leah, Forget the white sox video, I am a true fan of football and all I do at games is scream and I am lucky I can talk after a game. I am so sure that perry was goofing more then putting his heart and soul into it. Drinking some beers,screaming and just getting over being sick will make even the best singer sound hoarse. In a March interview of this year Steve Perry said he is happy with the new songs he has written and people are telling him hes ready to go and hes sounding great. He said himself while he sings he feels sad at times because he sounds like the perry with journey and it pains him with memories. Randy Jackson seen Perry about 3 months ago and said his voice is still golden. So friend put your worries to rest our steve is back!!!

Leah Gluchoff
Just saw a video of him singing with the White Sox after the World Series win (Don't Stop Believin'). While that was a couple years ago, someone reassure me that it was just because he had gone hoarse from either cheering or an upper respiratory infection-because in that video (shot by someone who wanted to mock him-which made me furious), he was hoarse, off key, and truly sounded like only a shadow of himself. Anyone have any information on whether he has been heard, or recorded, singing since that World Series event? The thought of 'the Voice' being gone is heartbreaking! Please let it have been a fluke...

JAL
Finally!!! Of all the bands/musicians from the 1980s, Steve Perry is the ONLY one that I want to see new music from right now. Steve does everything with class, style, and integrity. I suspect we will all be blown away by what he produces. Take your time Steve. We have waited this long for it. A few more months is not a big deal.

cutlets29
This is the best news since fire was invented! We love you steve and we thankyou for hearing your fans cry out to you, I will be waiting with open arms for your next album, all I can say is tour baby tour!!!

Carol Burnett
Steve Perry singing again would be awesome!! He has been with me since 1979. I have loved his voice and listen to him everyday!! His voice and songs help me through so much. The respect i have for him and his music is great. he has a presence abought him!!! Every song he has recorded is awesome. I love everyone. OMG this is the best news what a great gift for me at 50 and i will buy all my family one for we all rock with Steve sosl and Journey w/Steve!! Perry on

Hannah
Steve, your Voice is truley missed!!!!!!!!!!!! Im Only 19 and I have every Journey cd except Escape, and your solo Cds to, your voice has helped me get thru the death of my grandad. PLEASE COME BACK TO US!!!!!!!!

Caligirl
People if Russ says it is so, it is so. He would be in alot of trouble saying this if it weren't true. SP would have his lawyers all over this if it weren't true. And you know that. November or December of 2009, and if not, it will be beginning of 2010. Just please be patient a little while longer. Steve loves his fans and he would never let them down. And the Best Of SP, the pix on that GREEN CD were absolutely beautiful. You have to have faith, believe! It could have been nothing you know, he could have just forgot about everyone. That is not the case, and yes he still is our Shakespeare of Rock and 'THE VOICE'. As far as his voice being shot, it just got deeper. Sexy deep! Remember the last time someone said that Stevie had lost his voice, he sure fooled those people. LOL! As far as Sherrie Swafford, don't mean to sound rude here, but that part of Steve's life is between him and Sherrie. She is still around and I am sure he still speaks to her. Everyone just be cool. It will happen.

monica
i love you Steve Perry. I am so excited to hear that you are going to record again. I have been trying to find something on the internet regarding a comeback or a new photo, anything regarding you and your voice, but i have'nt had any luck until now. I would love to see you reunite w/ Journey, one of my favorite 80's bands. I was a teenager in the 80's and never had the opportunity to see you live. It would be great if you would do some live performances to get the chance to hear that wonderful voice in person. please post recent photos or future plans.

Michael Lombardi
Steve! I spoke to you on Rockline in 1994 on the evening upon Strange Medicines release and you said you were going to Time Square to buy the first copy of your own album. I recorded that show and told you my band was working on some Journey covers. I have to say man that summer I fell into some deep trouble with drugs, alcohol and the law but seriously your album pulled me through as your music has all these years. I'm now a fairly successful musician and song writer and always give you props for helping me to my dreams. Release the album Steve! In this age of American Idol and poseur Steve Perry's running Journey it needs to be done! Your album will go platinum, we need you and love you. Peace and Love Michael Lombardi

Jeff Salado of "Arrival" a Tribute to Journey. myspace.com/arrivaltheband
What can I say to the voice? Steve you are the voice of Journey in the true fans Journey has made all these years. Arnel just sings the songs you made great. You command presence on stage and know what you want the music to sound like, it resonates in you. I guess that you have something to say after all these years or you wouldn't have produced anything This is your time to shine again. Welcome back Mr Steve Perry. Jeff Salado myspace.com/arrivaltheband

Sharon
Steve, just be yourself and don't worry about what anyone thinks. The music is in your soul and we all want to hear what you have to say. We will listen.

Diana lynn
Steve,dont worry if you think you cant sing up to our expectations any more,im sure any thing you do will still have that same magical affect that only youcan give,now at 60,I cant wait to hear a more mature Steve,Dont forget we have matured along with you and im sure we'll love you.

raye
Steve, I have to listen to your mesmerizing voice everyday, I loved you when I first heard you sing in the late 70,s and STILL love you today, Hope your new CD comes out real soon, can't wait!!!

rhonda
We love you out here in NY steve. Plant and yourself are my favorite singers. I am so thrilled and chocked up about you doing a new album that I cant wait to buy it. You do what is best for you but if you tour, I will be in first in line to buy a ticket. You dont need Journey you made Journey! I know if you tour and see the amount of fans at your concert it will be like 1981 all over again. You along with Robert pLANT WILL ALWAYS BE THE BEST SINGERS IN THE WORLD! Be happy knowing you are so loved by many!!!

Joe
Yes, I sadly agree that his voice is shot, otherwise he'd be recording more often and doing solo shows. He's smart not to go out there and embarrass himself live. But hey, "Don't Stop Believin'" found a resurgence, so the royalties he's getting are astronomical. Why work? At 60, I don't see a new album at this point. He's been out of Journey for 11 years now. Nothing in the interim aside from some studio backup work and one song ("I stand alone"). C'mon. But his legacy from '78-86 is undeniable! They still rock with Arnel, but it was silly to re-record the classics....just stick with the new stuff, Neal!

paula
I hope we get a new steve perry cd. It would be a great 50th b-day gift. I love that voice and would love the more mature (voice) as well. I for one hope the rumors are true. Love Ya Steve We will always have the memories!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Party Isn't Over !!!! Your encore is way over due Steve! You are the best period. Your songs have steered me thru life for over 30 years and are now sterring my childrens life. We love you man! Anything you produce will be top of charts, it always is....

hell yeah. steve perry needs to put the imitator arnel to shame!

rocknjon
I can't wait! I don't know of anyone else that I would want to hear a new album from more than Steve. His music is timeless! You are the best Steve!

I would love to hear Steve Perry again. He will always be "The Voice, Steve Perry" regardless of what happens to Journey.

PLEASE STEVE TOUR ONE MORE TIME I NEED TO SEE YOU IN CONCERT...

I hope he comes out of retirement one more time. i went to see Bob Seger when he finally came out a new album and he rocked house at age 62. Journey was actually my first concert bach in 1979. How bout Supertramp too..with Roger. I'm waiting for that to happen.

diane b
-yes, Stevie, bring us more music. You're the man! You out shine Arnel by far!!! We love you, baby!

Freshmurj
Listen Steve, alot of people have been waiting for a very long time; wasted time that could have produced so much great music. If you can still sing, please do! Don't let us down, man; make the album.

I can't wait to hear his new album! He's going to blow all those Steve Perry wannabes out of the water! Now I will only see Journey with Steve Perry! No imposters please!

Christy in Jax. Fl.
I will always love Steve Perry !! i would love to hear him sing again !! i'm sure his voice is not the same but i'm sure he can still sing and i would love to hear him sing again !!!

guitarstarboogie
New album my ***. I've been hearing this rumor for over a year now and still there is no album. I'll believe Perry's back when I'm holding the new cd(album) in my hands. But for now, it's all just rumor to me. I still believe that his voice is shot. I'm a long time Journey fan from way back. Loved Steve's voice when he was with Journey. But guess what? I've moved on....will always be a Journey fan no matter who's fronting them. Journey on dudes!!!!!!!!

Kat~
What great news to hear Steve Perry will once again grace the microphone with his incredible voice! ~THE VOICE~ we have been faithfully awaiting your return.

Thank Goodness sakes alive!!!! I still sing with you almost everyday in my car and try to get up as high as you do and almost choke..LOL I meet you in San Luis Obispo California around 1985 with your Dad at Walden'sbook store, It was me and my mother out Christmas shopping!! I'll never forget it and neither will she:) Your voice is precious to us and our family...looking forward to purchasing this new album of yours:) and many more to come...If ever in Branson Missouri...please let me know and we can take you sight seeing!! Your friends, Charla & Jackie Womack

Marion
Just another rumour -- enticing his fans but not delivering. Oh well! Still love the man and his fantastic legacy. No one lives up to The Voice. You're the best, Steve.

how do you know this will happen, there has been so many rumours, then we get a best of album, just released in january 2009,
