B Rock Note: Steve Perry to Rejoin Journey? Cain Says ‘No’
Steve Perry released his first solo album, Traces, in 24 years on October 5. But here's the real - and most obvious - question in the rock world: Will Perry rejoin Journey?
He has no plans to do so. He told Blabbermouth that he has no plans for a reunion and that they have gone their separate ways (I see what you did there, Steve) He went on to say that, "Arnel is a great singer and he's been in the band for ten years, but yeah, I don't think that's where I'm at right now."
Keyboardist Jonathan Cain told the Pulse recently that he does not believe a reunion is on the horizon either.
"No, because he really sealed the deal back in '98 and said, 'Don't expect anything from me, y'know, we're done. You and I are done.' So I know that he keeps his word and I would not make that call because I know that he's quite happy with the life he has. And it's pretty rigorous out here. What we do is very rigorous, and he doesn't need it. Why does he need it, y'know? His legacy is already there."
Journey's last album with Steve Perry was 1996's Trial By Fire.
