One of the most desired reunions never to have taken place in rock history has to be Steve Perry and Journey, and at this point guitar legend Neal Schon doesn’t see the point of it happening.
He said recently that any reunion with Perry wouldn’t make the band any bigger than they are today with current singer Arnel Pineda. Considering how ugly things were behind the scenes with the members of the band, I can’t possibly foresee Perry ever reuniting with Journey.
The thought of Perry singing with his former Journey bandmates is certainly intriguing.
That said, I love what Arnel Pineda has brought to the table vocally, as seen in this clip from their recent Jones Beach show.
How about you? Would you drop $$ to see Steve Perry sing with Journey again?
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
