The past three weeks have been full of all sorts of rumblings and rumors. I think it's finally happening!!
Wow. That would be great news!
Could it be?! A new album?
Finally! After only 20 years I'm sure it'll be worth the wait. The website is real as confirmed by Fan Asylum and his social media accounts are verified. And according to 101.5 radio in San Diego they'll be playing some of his new songs in the next couple of weeks.
Christmas coming early this year!
Perry has been recording for several years, one can only imagine how much material he has amassed. Would love to see the 1995-era outtake “Home At Last” resurrected.
A month or so ago Toad the Wet Sprocket posted some video of Steve Perry popping into their tour rehearsal space, saying he was rehearsing next door to them.
You know, I'm not a fan of arena rock generally or whatever bands like Journey, Foreigner , REO Speedwagon, Styx, etc., are called.
It's just not my thing.
But, Steve's vocals are the exception to the rule in my case.
His vocals transcend the genre for me.
I can listen to him singing Journey's songs and I have nothing but respect for his singing.
Also, he seems to be a good guy.
So, I wish him the best with this release if it happens and I look forward to giving it a listen.

Can't wait! I wish it was a 2 CD set. I'll just be happy with s new Perry Album.
Welcome back Steve!
About time......we've been strung out....
You've nailed it. !
I'll be in for this.
It will be like hearing from an old friend again.
Go get em' Steve!!
This will be interesting!
Awesome! Good timing, I just found a sealed copy of Street Talk at the local record store for $3 too!
Can't wait. Very exciting news. Hopefully there's some rocking stuff on the album and not loaded with ballads.
Street Talk da bomb 1984--85.
I am tempering my expectations, in that regard.
His voice is lower and a bit raspy now. But, it is rich and full as can be. It's uniquely beautiful as always. I expect a lot of soulful music and a lot of ballads. I am sure there will be some upbeat numbers, but, I don't expect any "rock" tunes.
Is Steve Perry Returning to Action?
Steve in 2014:
A while back he spoke about recording the Eels song "Mother****er". I would love to hear that.
Could also be a new HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES album.
is his voice still great?
