Steve Perry Won’t Be Reuniting With Journey
It appears that the latest round of rumors regarding Steve Perry rejoining Journey are untrue. The band's management has denied that any such communication has taken place between the two camps.
Over at MelodicRock.com, Andrew J. McNeice writes, "I can 100 percent confirm there has been no business/reunion communication between the camps, and while everyone is on good terms, with no issues, there are no plans for any kind of reunion or attempts to work together in the foreseeable future. As Journey management stated to me today, 'No reunion plans . . . all is well in the Journey camp . . . big tour in the U.S. this summer -- Journey/Steve Miller and Tower of Power.'"
Earlier this week, in response to yet another question about the possibility of him rejoining Journey, Perry said, “It’s tough. I’m doing my best in that area, and I can only do so much.”
McNeice suggests that Perry's statement "is basically a polite answer to the question he is always going to be asked. And watching him say it on video gives it better context than the quote in text. . . . But don't get too excited, folks. My source states that any hype is just hot air."
