Journey fans got the news they'd been hoping to hear.... and that is.. Steve Perry WILL join his former band next Friday in Brooklyn at the Barclay's Center when they are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame .
Journey's keyboard player Jonathan Cain said in a recent interview that he’s looking forward to seeing Perry at the ceremony. "The ceremony is the first time we’re going to get to see Steve Perry in a long time, so that’ll be fun."
Then Cain went on to answer the OTHER burning question fans have been wanting answered...
"As far as we know, he’s just going to accept the award and then skedaddle, that’s all I know unless something changes."
So YES Steve Perry, and NO to Steve singing or performing. bummer.
That means Journey will most likely perform with their current lead singer Arnel Pineda. Cain said "Arnel has been consistently on the road for 10 years now, I don’t think any singer in the band has stayed on the road as long as Arnel has. When we think back to the Steve Perry days, he wasn’t in the band for 10 years straight, faithfully being the road singer."
Did someone say "Faithfully?"
