    that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that not enough people are
    speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I found this during my search for something relating to
    this.

  2. Hey! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new iphone!

    Virginia was ushered into a studio and introduced to the pianist, none
    other than the famous Moon Mullican – He told Virginia not to be nervous or intimidated by all “big shots” running around,
    that they were just like her. Obviously there are issues with these two definitions, and they
    all but ignore the expression “vintage motorcycle.

  10. Quite honestly, chiropractic marketing in this
    new innovative way is incredibly fun, not to mention it’s
    absolutely free. Benefits of working in the affiliate marketing business include low-risk, high-return business opportunity, no
    glass ceiling to worry about, minimal working experience required, wide range of products, as well as
    working at your own pace. It has, in itself, became a classic
    way to get involved, get informed, get updated, get noticed, and get heard.

    molested girls confessed to the recurring use of sex
    sites in the cost of their offences. Besides stirring the
    criminal, pornography encourages child molestation in a few means.

    For example , pedophiles employ pornographic photos to demonstrate
    to the victims what they want these to carry out.

    He used to be totally right. This submit truly made my day.
    You can not imagine simply how a lot time I had spent for this information!
    Thanks!

  14. Ahaa, its nice conversation about this paragraph here at this
    webpage, I have read all
    that, so now me also commenting here.

  15. Heya! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to
    ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount work?
    I’m completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start
    a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for
    brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

  16. You are my aspiration , I possess few blogs and often run out from to post .

  17. I’ll right away clutch your rss as I can not find your e-mail subscription hyperlink or e-newsletter service. Do you have any? Please let me recognize so that I may just subscribe. Thanks.

  18. Your blog is really interesting to me and your subject matter is very relevant. I was browsing around and came across something you might find interesting. I was guilty of 3 of them with my sites. “99% of blog managers are doing these five mistakes”. http://bit.ly/syWJZ9 You will be suprised how fast they are to fix.

  19. well i hope its true that steve is putting out 1 last album like this news blog here

  20. Hi again, Loyal Perry Fans!

    Just in case you didn’t know, Steve Perry is conducting another Q&A session via Fan Asylum. The deadline to submit questions is fastly approaching – so check it out: http://www.fanasylum.com/steveperry/.

  21. o number plates cbtmee xxybga fronr

  22. Just listened to Sarah Silverman’s audiobook in which she accuses Perry of being racist, along with CNN, Foxnews, the Tea Party, groups of people she’s never met and knows nothing about, and anyone else she disagrees with… My take is that she is throwing Steve under the bus to try to justify her brand of “irony.” Not cool. A few parts were very funny and the majority was extremely boring; a lot like her show. I’m pretty offended. Steve Perry is an extremely talented singer and seems like a nice, regular guy; her story does not ring true.

    • Idols Randy Jackson used to play with them and I’ve heard nothing but praise from him. He seems to have had a very good relationship with Steve which would discredit some of the racist accusations a bit.

  23. I know steve can sing and he is so yummy. I would just like to me him and get to know him for him.

  24. Hey All,
    Not sure if you have heard on here but there is a contest and Journey is getting their butts whipped. So get on there and vote!!!

    Here is the link: http://espn.go.com/espnradio/story?page=bracket/rockbands

    Debs 🙂

    p.s. been so long since I’ve been on here I forgot if this will be a new topic or if I accidently hijacked a thread…sorry! LOL 🙂

  25. Steve Perry…..

    I think Idol want to be’s would really idealize someone who has won in the battle of the bands years back…

    Steve… would you talk to Randy (American Idol) about possibly working with the idol hopefuls to, maybe sing some of your greats of the 80′ thru today 🙂 🙂

    Please consider..

    PS: We miss your voice, your energy, you desire to never disappoint, your heartfelt music and most of all, we miss you!!

    hope all is going well, all the best

  26. everyone still waiting for a Perry album…..I was here once 1 year ago…..and nothings changed…..hes done…..thats it…..go enjoy his music?

    • We, the Perry faithful will continue to believe! Its your choice not to.

    • Sure, he may be taking his sweet time, but we don’t believe Steve is “done” (as you put it). Of course, we will forever enjoy his musical masterpieces. But it seems that you yourself don’t really believe (wholeheartedly) that Steve is done because if you did, you wouldn’t be checking this website at all. Just an observation… 🙂

    • Bubba,
      To find out what Steve Perry is up to lately, go to Steve Perry online and listen to his live interviews at the giants celebration this past November, 2010. He stated himself he is currently working on some new material. I won’t stop believing as long as Steve himself is lending hope of a new release!

    • I’d wait forever for Steve Perry!

    • Steve has been consistent with the definite maybe which means he is retired doing and other things. One of his answers in the newest fan asylum bithday Q&A was that he is “not a spring chicken” at age 62. I do believe that he still has his voice but is just enjoying his senior years. I too, will wait indefinitely for more music but will not hold my breath. Thank goodness for the large catalog he has.

  27. Hi ladies,

    Please don’t misunderstand, I know first hand that life can be very cruel at times. It’s not like I wake up each day thinking “It’s a wonderful Life” although, I do believe in the power of positive thinking which gets me through those rough days. Anyway, I just wanted to wish the best to everyone in the coming new year… I hope you celebrate it with those special to you… And remember, when life throws crap at you, use it to fertilize the garden next spring.
    Who knows you might grow some extra tomatoes to use in retaliation.

    And so, again, the time is here
    For ringing in another year
    I hope this new year brings to you
    Peace, Joy and hope renewed

    May you receive the powers of
    Healing strengths from faith and love
    Release your pain and crippling fears
    Then raise a toast to a wonderful new year

    Please have a designated driver if you plan to do a lot of toasting, or Should I say if you plan to get toasted? In any case, don’t forget the “all important” D.D. Be safe!

    • Heres to a positive new start for 2011. Love that garden metaphor since I do garden and it is very true, but, I eat my tomatoes thank you. Still have crossed fingers for new sp music. Was listening to old tapes of Steve’s FTLOSM tour and his voice was a little strained then and I worry that is why he doesn’t want to sing. SO tightly crossed fingers even if it is just interview update. Happy new year.

  28. Hi ladies,

    Here’s wishing you all a Happy Christmas and New Year. Can’t wait to hear what Steve has to say in January… It won’t be long now! Be good for now, Happy Holidays everyone!

  29. Ok Ladies, check out Fan Asylum- Steve Perry. He is going to do his birthday question and answer session. He missed a couple of years, but is back this year! YEAH!

    • Thanks Joy! It’s so nice to hear, I can’t wait to see if he’ll answer the burning questions. Do you plan on another release soon, and if so when should we expect it??? Oh yea, and let’s not forget, Will you marry me Steve??? LOL

      • you’re too funny. Steve has been single this long so marriage is not on his agenda. Lets just try to get music out of him..;)

      • Yes plumiegirl, just being funny, he’s way out of my league for one, not to mention, I don’t believe he’d give me a second glance anyway…Too bad, but then you can’t fault a girl for dreaming. That gorgeous face and soul soothing voice are just too much for me at times. If I were ever to met him face to face I’d probably melt and evaporate off the face of the planet. Oh well, it would certainly be an exciting occasion for me, to say the least! I am with you in hoping we at least get a new album from him soon. Sure would add some warmth to the season…

        Please let me know if you hear anything new!

      • Hey no one is out of anyones league but the real issue is none of us are crossing SP’s path. We are all here for the same great taste in music. Hang in there we need more music 😉

      • More music from Steve? Absolutely! Songs of hope and faith are indeed the way to start the new year off right. It would be nice to hear him sing a bit of Jingle Bell Rock or something of that nature, but I’m sure I’d be thrilled with whatever subject he decided to focus his efforts on. He could do a commercial jingle advertising “used and tattered fruit of the looms” and make it all sound alluring. LOL Although, Fortunately, I wouldn’t foresee things of that nature triggering his artistic instincts.

  30. Love may come and love may go, yet memories will remain. Like smiling eyes and sounds of laughter, or sharing each others pain. I can’t forget the moment he left, I felt his spirit soar. rising above, exuding love, to stay for evermore. Am I selfish, am I wrong for missing him so bad? Instead, I should be grateful that I had called him Dad. With Christmas round the corner as loved ones will arrive, We’ll spend our time together sharing love that’s still alive. I know he’ll be there with us, His spirit in our hearts. We’ll celebrate each other, knowing someday, we too must part. Now, I look for tomorrow, without the fear of doom. Knowing someday I’ll see him beyond that silvery moon. Cherish loved ones while they’re here, don’t wait for time to pass, or someday you’ll be longing for the love that you could have had…
    I am so thankful that we had the time to share our truths, it’s easier while knowing that “I am” because of you! Thanks for making a difference while you had the time, and thanks so much for showing me that love can outlast time…

    Tomorrow marks the anniversary of my father’s departure. While a part of me misses him tremendously, my heart feels his presence still.

    • wow, wish I could express myself this well. Sorry for your loss, happy that you had such a wonderful father. He is always in your heart where love resides forever.

      • Thanks plumiegirl, I was very lucky to have him in my life. That was a painful lesson in acceptance, I am so grateful we were close and took the time to remain that way.

  31. Here’s a kiss for Stevie from all his Hardcore fans!

    Sending his love from along the wire
    Steve Perry has set many hearts on fire
    Yearning desire that never will fade
    Grows even stronger, as restless we await

    When will he whisper sweet nothings again
    Fanning these flames that smoulder within
    Causing these sparks to ignite one more time
    Burning eternal, in your hearts and mine

    Voices are crying for you in the night
    Please come back Stevie and stand in the light
    Share with us all the voice of your soul
    That which is cherished by both young and old

    Now we are begging you, give us the chance
    Bring back those feelings of faith and romance
    Just as the sun rising over the bay
    Your brilliance enlightens us, soooo many ways

    Shine for us soon!

    Your fans are waiting with Open Arms Stevie, We love you, PLEASE, give us another kiss!!! Umm… Oh, I mean, a new CD…Maybe even a tour???

    By the way ladies, Steve Perry online has posted that Steve has written 50 new songs. Still no word as to when we may hear any of it. So, here we stand so patiently. I have a feeling it won’t be long.

    • Thanks Love! Out of all your poems (which I love) this one touched me the most.

      • Thanks Joy!

        I wonder whats up with Debs and the rest of the gang? Haven’t been hearing from anyone here lately…???

        Oh well, I am glad you enjoyed the poem Joy. Have a lovely week and keep your Perry Blankets handy to keep you warm this season. I do hope the stores have new ones in stock by Christmas this year.
        I plan to stay Very, Perry, Warm

      • LOVESMO….Hey Lady. Still here but the puter has been screwed up since the beginning of Nov. So still trying to get it fixed. Long story, but everyone is keeping me updated that is on FB since puter works when it wants too! UGH! The rumors are flying about SP! Typical and the voting with Brian Blades about Escape winning the contest! Been serious drama this last month that is for sure!!! 🙂

        Debs 🙂

      • Hi Debs! Sorry to hear you’re have problems with your computer. Must be very frustrating…I am glad to hear you are O.K. and still keeping up with all the latest. I haven’t heard anything new since November, but I am still hoping we hear a new CD very soon. Hope your Christmas is a great one!

    • Tis the busy season, but loved this poem and felt bad I did not respond…Have a wonderful Christmas and lets pray for the SP song presents.

      • Hi plumiegirl,

        Glad you could take a moment to say hello! I’ve been wondering about you all. Hope your Holiday’s are lovely and yes, I will be praying right along with you!!! I try not to get my hopes to high, but the whole idea of hearing new music from Steve, makes it difficult not to get excited, especially with Christmas and his birthday in January coming up. I do hope our Christmas wishes come true! Hey, should we ask Santa too?

        Um, here it goes…

        Dear Santa,

        I realize I haven’t written to you for many years and you probably think I don’t believe in you anymore…
        I also know you cater mostly to children these days and may not have time for me anymore, but….Anyway, I was just wondering if you might bring me something special this year as I have been a very good girl…If you could please go visit the great vocalist Mr. Steve Perry and tell him the happiness of many lies in his hands. Sprinkle some magic dust on him and tell him he WILL record a new CD for release by December 23rd so as you can deliver them to all his good little fans by Christmas morning… If I don’t see my new Steve Perry CD under the tree on Christmas, I will simply pretend you never existed and I shall not bother trying to be good anymore! Let’s face it Santa, your attention to me in my younger days made me become just another big brat who wants everything her own way… I hope you realize it would be your fault Santa, if I were to wake up only to cry on Christmas morning!!! I certainly hope you have the good conscience to make this Christmas wish come true. Please be a doll Santa and deliver the goods A.S.A,P… OR ELSE!!! I may have to call up the grandkids and have them tell all their little friends spike your cookies and milk so you become intoxicated. And then, before you know it you’ve been set up to find yourself waking up in someone else’s bed with her jealous husband standing by with a raised fist. Please, Don’t make me go there Santa! Give me that CD!!!

        P.S. I was just wondering how many other brats you’ve spoiled with you Christmas Wish antics???

      • LOL !

  32. Ignore that old rumor about Steve wanting to rejoin Journey. That rumor has been circulating since 2007. As for me I don’t Stop Believing…

    A beaming light appeared beyond the island, shimmering…
    The moon was smiling sweetly over waters, glimmering…

    A golden voice did echo across that magic land
    Revealing it’s desire to hold love in his hand

    Mermaids came from turquoise waters hidden deep below
    Witnessing sounds that had reached within their very souls

    There within the moonlight, his eyes came shining through
    Paralyzing hearts with words of love they never knew

    The head mermaid spoke up and said: “So tell us chosen one, where is it you come from, and are you here all alone.”

    Smiling for a moment, Stevie winked an eye and said: “I came here to record amidst this peaceful island land.”

    The mermaids looked excited as they all swam fast away, seeking buried treasures as for this CD they’d pay.

    And so would I…Come on, Stevie, Make my Holidays special with a new release!

    • Love is that you? As always, another beautiful poem. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

      • Hi Joy, Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Yea, I was a bit tired of reading the old rumor they’ve been recirculating since 2007, so I came here to see if anyone is still waiting like I am to hear some real news since Steve’s latest interview this month. Hard to believe people are still posting that old crap about Steve wanting to rejoin the band. I wish it were true, but as we all know, you can’t believe anything unless you hear it straight from The Voice himself. Tabloids only post that crap in hopes that they can hustle Steve into an interview or in hopes he will make some negative comment that they can use to spread more false rumors about his personal character , when actually, they simply insult his intelligence with all their nonsense. Steve Perry is no one’s fool! He will speak “only when he is ready.”.. Anyway… Gotta run, there’s much to do before tomorrow. I hope you all have a great Holiday!

    • adoraria receber notícias novas de steve aqui no brasil, sou muuuuuuito fã!, abraços a quem compartilha comigo essa admiração !

  33. The game is over, this season is gone
    But My, My, My, Giants… you have finally won!
    You’ve taken the title and made it yours
    After all of those years, Your Faith did endure…

    You beat them with pitches so sure and so fast
    Covering bases while kicking some azz
    The sounds of the crowd screaming Go Giants Go
    Kept you believing what you’ve always known

    Don’t give up hope as the struggles begin
    Don’t stop believing, You know you can win
    Yes San Fransisco You’ve got it all
    Steve Perry’s vocals and the Giants of baseball

    Now that’s worth rooting for!

  34. Hi ladies!

    It appears the Giants have proven what faith and determination can manage.
    As the game began, I turned on my Journey CD and played “DSB” over and over throughout the game as I cheered for those guys. The Giants defense was so overpowering it was almost unbelievable. They never opened their mind to the possibility of failure. Even as Texas Rangers fans were booing the Giants and screaming Lets go Rangers, The Giants could only hear their own conscience saying “Don’t Stop Believing San Fransisco”, They held on to that feeling of overwhelming faith of their own without ever noticing the eyes of those who were praying in hopes of their defeat. Over fifty years of struggling to make it back and now the Giants have made a new mark in baseball history. Way To Go Giants! Hooray for all the San Fransisco Giants fans who never stopped believing in them. I do hope Steve Perry will focus his energy into recording a new CD now, As we all know, that would be a huge win for his fans.

  35. Heres a link to last nights Giants game Steve Perry singing Lights with the crowd on the jumbo tron> I am hoping for a better video to show up soon but this will do for now. 😉

  36. Another contest that has been out about a week. Right now it’s Journey-Escape against Elton John-Yellow Brick Road. Get on there and vote. 🙂

      This made my day!

      • I had seen a poorer quality version but this was nice and clear. He be looking baseball happy….

    • thanks for the heads up and I went and voted…

  37. Hoping for more steve perry pics from tonights game!!!

    • Hi Debs and plumie,
      I just placed my vote for you know who, Thanks Debs! Did any of you catch the game last night? It was great!!! Didn’t see Steve unless they may have flashed him while I was blinking, but that was an exciting game just the same. Both teams put forth tremendous efforts, but the Giants never let up. It was something to see. Way to go Giants! Throw us a link if they post any new pics of Steve. Enjoy your day Ladies!

  38. Hi everyone. On the Melodicrock forum Steve Perry rare pics site, there is a pic of Steve from the game Fri night. Click to enlarge. I guarantee you will enjoy the picture!

    • You’re awesome Joy! Thank you for the great photo of Mr Perry 🙂

    • Wow!! Steve looks absolutely relaxed, happy, and wonderful! This picture coupled with his most recent interview just makes me even more hopeful that he’ll be releasing something by next year. Even if it’s just a single song or a couple a songs (not necessarily an entire album), that would be GREAT!! (Of course, I’d then still want him to do a tour! 🙂 Well, thanks for sharing the latest picture. Steve still has it. Let’s face it – the man is just a Hottie-hot-Hottie! 🙂

  39. Hi everyone, check out FAN ASYLUM-STEVE PERRY
    Steve has left a new message!

    • Thanks Joy!
      I will be listening to the interview tomorrow!

      • Oh yea, for anyone else who may want tune in, Steve’s interview is October 8th at 8:00 am you may listen online to KNBR sports radio. Hopefully they’ll ask a few questions about his plans for the future.

      • OOps! I forgot to add, that’s 8:00 am pacific time…

    • Here’s the link ladies….http://www.knbr.com/

      • I’m sitting at the computer trying to kill time until the game tonight. I’m not a real big baseball fan, but I’ll muddle through just to get a glimpse of Steve. I live in the mid west so it will be a long night for me. In the mean time, I have been going through UTUBE. A lot of the old videos have given me palpitations! Like Lovin Touchin Squeezin. Love it! Faithfully, Open Arms and When You Love A Women have sent me into a depression. I am so filled with what coulda shoulda been. All the what ifs! Its interesting to read all the current comments to videos that were put on UTUBE several years ago. Kids now are loving the music. Its to bad there wasnt a WWW in the 80’s. I think Journey and Steve would have been more popular. At least they are making up for it now. Anyway, lets keep our fingers crossed for news tomorrow.

      • Thank you for the link lovemeso! I downloaded an app to my iphone called Tunein Radio and it did cost 1.99 but it has that radio station and when the show is playing, the iphone can tape it so that you can save it or send it to your friends. Will try it during my drive time tomorrow;)

    • Wow!

      In the latter part of Steve’s Interview, Steve says he is working on new recordings!!! He doesn’t say anything about when they should be completed,
      But, he said Baseball has helped bring back his love for music. It’s so great to hear he’s enjoying life again and getting back to recording. He admits it’s not as easy without Journey, but he’s working on it. That was an interesting interview…

      • I am definitely encouraged. He sounded better today than Ive ever heard him. I don’t think theres going to be a new album this year, but maybe next year! I can wait awhile longer because now I know he’s serious and wanting to do music again. Way to go Steve!

      • It was a great interview, as you said interesting, to say the least. Each time we hear an interview, we seem to get a little more information that puts the pieces of the puzzle together. I’m happy he is enjoying himself
        Perry On……………………

      • Just love that he is a big a sports fan….he was so fired up about the SF Giants game, had me laughing. It is nice to have another passion, gives life purpose. He did say that getting into baseball is helping him return to his love of music. He said that music was every aspect of his life, I can see why he had burn out, diversifying can help like he said.

  40. Thank you Lynda. I did already see that one. What they showed on TV was much longer and right on him not the jumbotron. I am still waiting for word from several sites I have appealed to on this. I found out yesterday that my dad did have that game recorded, but that he erased it! Argggg. Will keep looking. I was in such shock when I saw it on TV that I need to see it again. LOL

  41. Hello everyone, on the same melodic rock web site Lynda was was referring to earlier this weekend, someone has a link on UTUBE of a person that is supposed to be Steve at a Giants game on Sat leading the crowd in singing DSB.Its really hard to see if its him. Maximizing helps a little bit. If it is him, its good to see him out and having a good time.

    • It IS him. I was watching the game. The broadcast cameras got a much better shot of him head on. I am requesting for the station to post that vid. I was the one that originally located and shared the cellphone vid. It most definitely was him. At the end of the game his name was announced again and he addressed the crowd to help keep their spirits up after we lost. He was rockin out and having a great time singing along with the crowd to DSB! He is frequently at Giants games as that is his favorite team. If I get the other video that shows him more clearly and close up I will post.

  42. hi girls, please DO NOT click onto the link for flickr, just COPY AND PASTE the flickr link into GOOGLE, then that should take you to the correct melodic rock page.

  43. Re. new Steve Perry photo,found it best to just copy and paste the link onto google ,and when you get to the melodic rock site, the photo is 3/4 way down the page (posted by weatherman90).

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/budphoto1/5035593006/in/contacts/

    • Hi Lynda,
      I tried the links but no go. I went to melodicrock.com and cannot find it either. Got any other ideas? Thanks for trying.

      • Hi Marylou, not sure if you know me on youtube, im called verysteveperry, ( ive recently commented on Mother Father posted by perryness, so you can click into my channel from there Marylou ) i have the photo posted on my channel at the moment. Hope this of help. Lynda

    • thank you for the new picture, was there more info such as location and who is that other guy?

      • Hi there plumiegirl, when my good friend gave me details of the photo on the Meldoic Rock forum yesterday , i managed to see what was written with the pic. It just said that it was taken at an airport ( didnt say which airport). There was a date of 23/09/10 underneath the picture, not sure if that was the date the pic was taken, or when it was posted onto flickr or MR. Didnt say who the other guy was either, he was a guy maybe in his 50s, with short grey hair, and wearing a suit, i have no other details, but if i do find out thru my friend, i will post it on here for you.

  44. Hi Perry friends, just been sent a new Steve Perry photo by a good friend on You Tube, its dated 23 .9. 10. My friend had no further details, just the photo, which is sensational. This is the link, or google, to the pic ,hope it works! Steve looks fantastic!

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/budphoto1/5035593006/in/contacts/ – Steve spotted at the airport

  45. Hello everyone, I noticed today on Wikipedia that Steve has bought into a bovine insemination business. Is this a joke?? Does anyone know anything about this?

    • I saw that somewhere too. I used to be an animal science/corporate farm business major at Cal Poly Pomona (changed to medical major), and AI (artificial insemination) was taught & studied there. It is used for selective breeding and hybrid vigor in a herd. Sounds like he might into breeding (animals) and/or has a cattle ranch (beef or milk?) Either way it can keep one busy on the farm. Didn’t he make and fix cages for his step father’s turkey farm way back when? Isn’t his hometown in the central valley where the bulk of california agriculture and farming is? Makes sense.

  46. The mental image of that scratch match is hilarious! lol.I think there would probably be a lot more than 500 crazy women though,there would be thousands! lol. I believe Steve will be back ,and very soon. I wont stop believin either!

    • Hi Lynda!

      You’ll have to excuse us here as we seem to get a little crazy from time to time, but it’s all in good fun…We just give ourselves something to do as we wait for the next breath of words to flow from Steve’s gorgeous lips…YUM! LOL

      Hey, You know if you think about it, Steve is a lot like a Prince from some fairy tale. He has every Princess in Perryville awaiting the chance for just one tiny glimpse of his precious face. Wow, I wanna be his Cinderella….I can just see it now, The Woodstock of Perryville. The masses are scattered as they mingle about shaking hands with their enemies pretending to think no one knows exactly why they came to this enormous event. As the Prince makes his entrance, the sea of princesses farted, OOPs! I mean, PARTED. Unless you consider those who may shit themselves at the thought of his very presence, in which case they would lose out completely. Anyway, the rest of the witches, I mean princesses, remaining to behold his majesty’s face. They drink, they dance, they laugh, they cry, especially those who never had a shot at happiness with his majesty in the first place. Some of them, refusing to give up, begin to bicker in their feverish attempt to gain his majesty’s attention only to find they’d picked the wrong witches to bicker with. As the madness continues, that special little princess appears from the east corner of the west end of the field like a hurricane from out of Witchita. LOL Anyway, she blows the pants right off the rest of the crowd, exposing them to the bitter cold and damp, while leaving her majesty room to partake in the view long enough to decide that it was no longer a question of who, but what was he there to discover??? Could it be he no longer desired the company of these evil ones? Then at that very moment, the princess stopped blowing and the remaining witches gathered their scattered garments and ran like hell, leaving only the princess standing before him. Oh Prince Perry, she exclaims, For I have waited my whole life in hopes of spending just one moment with you alone, could I please have your autograph? Quietly he makes his way across the deserted landmark thinking oh crap another one of those….He signs his name on the Princess’s paper, with a wink he turns to walk away…So for now the Prince stands alone, vowing to himself that someday, someway, he will find his fairytale princess…..

      Stay tuned for part two of The Witches Of Perryville when The Little Princess returns to Perryville just in time to hear the Prince singing a Message Of Love….

      • Love, you have taken a little bit of a dark turn here, but I cant wait to see what happens. At least she asked for his autograph instead of a pic. I hear he is longer able to do pictures with fans. (lawyers orders?) Any way Perry fans, have a good weekend, maybe we will have the news we’ve been waiting for on Monday!!!!

      • Hi Joy!
        No need to fear the Real Perry Princess will appear just in time for coffee and donuts at Perryville’s one and only Punkin Donuts. They’ll share a few laughs and all’s well that ends well. “Don’t Stop Believing” as the prince would say.

      • As the story of our Prince of Perryville continues, we find our handsome Prince standing in the shadow of love…Suddenly, like a flash from the camera of a paparazzi, he sees the image of himself as he’s wading through the surf on the shores of a land known to him as Lover’s Island…The place was crawling with
        beautiful women and not one of them knew his name there. As he sloshes his was along the shoreline, his gorgeous eyes dancing behind his shades as he searches for just the right spot to rest his royal behind, he spots a nice shaded Tiki lounge and makes his way over to a vacant stool. As he places his order for a Perrytini with a twist of lime, a sweet looking lady walked up to him and asked him his name. “I am sir Perry of Perryville, he replied. “And may I say that You are one hot looking maiden?” “Whats your name?” He asked… She said: “Just call me Princess Runamuck ” “Hmm very interesting name” said the prince. “Would you like to dance with me?” she asked. The Prince said: “It would be my pleasure!” As they made their way to the small but empty dance floor he coundn’t help but notice loud rumblling sounds as if a stampede of people are walking with them. He looks all around and sees no one but the bartender and a few others lounging at the bar. As they begin to dance the sounds of many feet shuffling from underneath her long sun dress is beginning to drown out the music. The prince looked down just as the breeze caught her dress revealing that Princess Runamuck in fact, had seven feet. The Prince pretended not to notice until those feet began stepping all of his with each step they made together.
        So the kind handsome Prince decided to tell the Princess he was pleased to have made her acquaintance but, it was time for him to return to his homeland.
        So with a smile he did depart, but whilst making his way back to his hotel, he spotted the most beautiful creature he’d ever laid eyes on. Her gorgeous hair flowing in the breeze as the sunlight reflected from her beautiful eyes. She waved to him and as he approached her she said I know that face, It’s almost like I’ve known you before, but where? The Prince was so taken by her haunting voice and blissful beauty, he felt the earth move. In that instant he knew she would become his Princess. But how, right? I mean after all the whole thing was just a vision, or was it something more? Could it be an omen of things to come? If it was indeed a vision of the future, hopefully he would meet his beautiful Princess without running in to Princess Runamuck once again. I mean after all that was a very awkward encounter. Oh, no matter, the Prince decided he would travel to the ends of the earth, facing whatever he must just to find that one Princess he had seen in his vision.
        Stay tuned for part three of our story when the Prince meets the girl in his vision and will ask such questions like, ” What’s your name?” “Are You Single?” “Are those the only two feet you have?” and “Are those thing real?”

      • P.S. Joy, You were right, I decided the witches had to go!
        BTW, in part two as he dances with Princess Runamuck, it should have read, “stepping all over his feet.”
        Poor editing…

      • Thanks Love for entertaining us while we wait for new news. Can hardly wait for part 3.

  47. I told you all back in March there was NOT a chance for a new Perry album. I wish there was, but let it sink in…..there NEVER will be outside of a song or two. The days have passed. 😦

    • @BUBBA!!! STFU! I know MORE than you could ever. I will ALWAYS hold out hope! I have something you never could. Trust me! STEVE WILL BE BACK! Maybe not in your or our time frame..but, HE WILL BE BACK! I HAVE AND NEVER WILL STOP BELIEVING!!!!!!!!!

      • Lisa W I’m going to trust you on this one. The true Steve Perry fans will never stop believing. He has got to know that there are a lot of us out here who have faith in him. So Perry on faithful fans!!!

      • Speaking of faithful fans, Marylou, how are you doing? I have been thinking about you.

    • Someday, Someway, Someday Baby, Oops! , I mean Bubba…I’m sure when he does make a comeback it may not be what everyone is expecting, but instead the reinvented version of Steve Perry. I believe he is taking all this time out for metamorphosis. It will be the same Steve we all admire, but with a spectacular twist. Many famous singers, actors, have been known to fall off the planet for years only to return with a whole new outlook and attitude. Steve is as human as they come. He’ll do it when he’s ready and based on what he said his February interviews…I believe the itch is returning! I for one, can’t wait to see him start scratching. Hey, I’d even help him scratch those tough to reach places if he’d allow it. LOL Anyway, I refuse to stop believing, it’s what keeps me alive!

      • Oh Love, you crack me up! But you are going to have to get through me to scratch Steve’s itchy spots!

      • Hi Joy!
        I think they should do a poll to see just how many fans would be lined up and ready for that scratch match…That would be very entertaining, bunch of crazies all slapping each other with their little back scratchers. That would be like one huge cat fight wouldn’t it? I can just see the headlines now…
        Over five hundred women suffered critical injuries after participating in the Open Arms Scratch Match where participants compete using back scratchers in hopes of being the first to make Steve Perry sing: “Ahhh, Ooooooh, Baby, That hit the spot!” LOL

      • Love, I needed a good laugh this morning and without fail you delivered! The mental image of that scene, 500 women with back scratchers is just to funny. I hope Steve does read these posts, he would get a HUGE laugh! Thats for making my day.

      • Hi again Joy!
        Happy you got a few giggles for the day. I was just thinking again and you know what that means…LOL

        I went to da scratch match de other night
        DJ was scratchin’ and da music wuz right
        Some women were flippin’ an’ popin’ their hips
        Others sat round drankin’ soda an’ chips

        Wishin’ and waitin’ for the fight to begin
        Da girls all claiming tdey wuz gonna win
        Soon dey announced de rules uh da game
        Just be a Perry lover and totally insane
        ( scratch noises-Zippy-zip-zip- zippaddy-zip-zip, whatever…)

        Da Flight Of Da Bumble Bee wuz startin’ to play
        So Da women start scratchin’ dem who got in da way
        When de battle wuz over, dey wuz such a mess
        Dey faces wuz ugly, dey dresses in shreds

        False eyelashes hangin’ off dey cheeks
        Not one of dim gals wuz lookin’ none too sweet
        With broken back scratchers stickin’ from behind
        Dey fake hair pieces dey have yet to find

        So if you wuz thinkin’ dat you wanna get funky
        Don’t enter a scratch match, instead get drunky
        Cuz if deys one thang you should now by now
        Steve Perry wouldn’t want a woman like dat anyhow!

      • Love, that was the best one yet!!! I had to read it several times to soak up all the goodies. How do you come up with this stuff? I would love to meet you gals, I bet we would be up all night howling at the moon. (You know what Steve says about the moon) WE need to keep our spirits up, the day will come soon and we will have our new music!
        Marylou, where are you. Everything ok?

      • Hello again Joy!

        Yes, howling at the moon is one of my favorite things to do, only, it’s been so long since I’ve actually howled at it… Living here they’d probably call animal services on someone for howling after dark. Then what? They’d probably try and have me put to sleep…These days it’s hard to say! Anyway, I do wonder where marylou got off to…I’m guessing She’s probably spending more time on facebook
        since there hasn’t been anymore news on Steve recently. Oh, well, time to get cooking here. See ya soon!

    • I have a gut feeling you are right. After looking at most of the videos online, there is a high probability that Steve might have had a mental break at one point. He had some major life losses such as his mother, girlfriend, and burnout. It is hard to deliver emotionally for an extended period of time and not burn out. How many songs can you write that will be as good or better than his already huge existing catalog -which we all love and enjoy endlessly. Based on current sightings, it seems he is living in Los Angeles and has access to the business so one never knows. Quoting Steve “never say never.”

  48. found another Steve picture in 2008 at Disney’s California adventure in 2008. Too bad I was not there…I have the pass but only go on wed/sundays darn it.

    This page did a back when they were young and now pics of famous rock stars & bands. Steve Perry shows up at picture #66. Very nice photos. Have fun looking.

    • That link was quite interesting…Time can do strange things to the faces of many, while it is kind to some, it can be very cruel to others… Steve Perry is among the ones that still look great!

      • He does look great but I think it is lifestyle and what you do. Clean eating, not using drugs, shows up dramatically in these pictures, makes me rethink about how diet and drugs can affect you in the long run.

      • Seeing the pics of him since late ’09 he is aging very well but does not look happy in the photos. Either he does not like having his picture taken or there is something else going on? Maybe if he got out more? Branched out a little? Maybe actually endorsed a fan club or fan site that would give him some exposure to the real world. If he is afraid of overexposure or invasion of privacy, I am guessing there are very few people who would actually have the nerve to approach him if they were in the same room? Just a thought…..

    • You said it Plumigirl! Lifestyle and eating are (Key) in appearance… And you are correct about those diet drugs as well. Researching the benefits of natural foods and herbs has been a life saver for me. I have now developed a taste for things I never thought to be that appetizing. Avacados aren’t just for guacamole anymore! They have so many health benefits plus there are so many ways to enjoy them…I noticed changes in skin appearance almost immediate after putting them into my diet…
      THEEEERE GREAT! As Tony would say…

  50. Hey Everyone,

    Came accross this today while I was on The Extreme website, I am a huge Extreme/Nuno Bettencourt fan(one of Steve’s good friends too) and just saw him(Nuno) at the Rihanna concert 2 weeks ago and he gave me 2 of his guitar picks!!

    Read about 1/4 of the way down in Gary’ Cherone’s interview, the question about the song Last Hour, Steve Perry is mentioned a few times.

    http://hardrockhideout.com/2010/05/10/gary-cherone-of-extreme-the-hard-rock-hideout-interview/

    I hope it works. Take care.

  51. Still no word of anything new since you spoke in February
    All of your fans Still waiting to hear new songs from you Steve Perry
    We spend our moments, day and night still hoping to hear you say
    I sending my love in a new CD which you’ll be releasing today

    So get busy angel it’s been so long since we seen that face of yours
    With all it’s heavenly wonder in the eyes of the one we adore
    We miss your smile and loving words escaping your magical lips
    And that voice that ignites a spark in our souls with the wave of your fingertips

    Now Mr. Perry I’m begging oh can you hear me calling now?
    Some fans are patiently waiting while others are having a cow
    Steve Perry you’re like some hero you’ve saved many lives through song
    In this world of confusion we’re counting on you to prove the naysayers wrong

    Faithfully,
    your adoring fans who Don’t Stop Believing in you!

    P.S. Please Hurry,
    it’s very painful for those of us having a cow!

    • Thank you so much Love. If Steve has friends keeping tabs on the www and they pass this poem in particular on to him, I dont know how he can refuse to put out a new album!

  52. from lisbon portugal. steve you are the best.

    • http://www.squidoo.com/steveperry

      Wow, I just stumbled on to this link, there are some great video clips here… Some of these I’ve never seen before. If you love Steve Perry like I do, this should keep you in dreamland for a while…

      • Thanks for the link Love! It’s really sad for us fans that Steve is not doing pictures anymore as he tells some fans in the comments section of the link. Myself and many others want to see ‘today’s Steve Perry’!

        Did you ever get your Facebook account?

        I also just noticed that today is the 1-year anniversary of this feed New Steve Perry Album.

      • Sometimes we take life too serious and things start to bite. This is what I do to relieve the sting a bit. (LOL)
        Hope you enjoy

        Romance Bites?

        I must have heard a song that reminded me of him
        The last time that I saw his face, it’s been so long since then
        Lost in thought I spent my day thinking of the time
        We laughed and danced together on balcony of Motel 9???

        Staring at the painted sky as sunlight fades away
        Breeze of summer lends a sigh with the promise of another day
        Another time, another chance to see with different eyes
        The cool reflection of the moon, like a beacon in the night

        The brightest star sits there alone high above them all
        Glitter hangs beneath it’s gleam decorating heavens halls
        Glowing light within the trees twinkle with delight
        Fireflies take their places, then mosquito’s start to bite

        All at once the magic of the moment there is gone
        I should have worn repellent now I’m itching to the bone
        I didn’t sleep at all last night and all because of this
        That lonely song that reminded me of someone that I missed

        So now I sit here scratching like a hound covered with fleas
        The calamine’s no comfort to my red and bumpy knees
        And now another lesson to remember all my days
        While romance can be beautiful, It can bite in many ways

      • Oh yes, I did get a facebook account. I just haven’t spent anytime with it yet. I completely forgot about that! I’ll have to see if I can retrieve my password and get to work on making friends…As for seeing recent photo’s of Steve, I would love to see more recent pics of that gorgeous face. Even more, I would love to see another live interview, or new video. Just knowing he is alive and doing well is happiness to me. I know, don’t hold my breath for anything new, right? Oh well, as long as there is a breath in me, I still hope for something new from him… Hope you have a beautiful week Blue!

    • Hi Debs,

      I did that last week, although it is a good idea to post the link around for those who may not have seen it. I hope everyone had a Perry Nice Fourth of July weekend. I Listened to greatest hits while watching the display. It was great!

    • Hi Debs,
      They won’t let me sign it again 😦

  56. Holy Crud! I just about fell out of my chair just now…watching America’s Got Talent and they played DSB with SP singing it and I was stunned!!!

    I swear I could listen to that man sing forever!!!!!!!!!

    Debs 🙂

    • Hey Ladies!

      I watched it too! Wow, did you hear the young guy from the Philippines? He beats the pants off Arnel! He is hurling towards stardom, I hope for his sake he has a decent agent… Last night was definitely worth watching! Debs, I was just about to switch the channel when my ears tunes into DSB. That brought a tear to my eyes after hearing the stories of struggle some of those people have endured. I can relate! That song is ageless for certain, and the movie never ends, it gos on, and on, and on, and on…Keep smiling ladies, have a great 4th of July weekend!

      • Oops! I believe it GOES on and on, I have no idea what gos on in this head sometimes. Looks like it’s time for another connection inspection, I smell smoke, LOL, must be a short in the wiring somewhere…Anyway, Happy 4th!

    • I have an annual pass for Disneyland and CA Adventure parks in SoCal and when I went to see their World of Color and the Glow Festival, they played the Steve Perry Version of Don’t Stop Believing dance version. My son said “isn’t that the one on your car cd player.” I did not think he listened much to what music I played in my car.

  57. The recent entry above says Journey made 35 mil on their last tour. I sure hope Steve got a large chunk of that since its his songs people are wanting to hear.

    • I sure hope Steve got a chunk of that change!!! Your right everyone wanted to hear Steve. 🙂

      Debs 🙂

  58. Hello. Just read this on melodicrock.com

    “It is rumored former vocalist Steve Perry recently handed Kevin Shirley solo material to mix and master.”

    Here’s the whole story.
    ARNEL CONTRIBUTES TO NEXT “ROCKING” JOURNEY ALBUM:
    Journey vocalist Arnel Pineda has once again stepped in to deny rumors he had left the band. Speaking on Pilipino TV last week the singer confirmed his involvement in the band and their new record, which has been largely completed under the guidance on producer Kevin Shirley in San Francisco. Shirley worked with the band on their hit Revelation album as well as the Perry comeback record Trial By Fire from 1997. It is rumored former vocalist Steve Perry recently handed Kevin Shirley solo material to mix and master.
    Pineda commented that he contributed songwriting on two songs for the as yet untitled new Journey album, due for release in 2011, after finishing touches and mixing take place in November. The songs To Whom It May Concern and She’s A Mystery join 9 other confirmed tracks in play. Producer Shirley earlier commented about the recording process on his Blog: “Work on Journey continues….seven slamming tracks thus far, and nary a ballad in sight, and a few more due today. Neal is hell bent on rockin’ out and he’s quite a force to reckon with when he sets his mind on something!” and “The new songs are very, very creative and rocking, and I like the creativity within Journey, but (like every other band) there are internal rubs (after 30 years in the business) which makes the days not necessarily as much fun as hard work. There is a theme to the entire album, which is very sexy and very rocking…”

    • I sure hope the rumor is true. he did say in the interview on westsound that he would be recording some new stuff soon. Maybe late 2010 or early 2011. Don’t stop believing

    • Good lord. SAME very VERY old rumor. That rumor has been floating for years and years. You loons will jump on anything won’t you?

      • If that is what you believe, then stay off our board. It’s obvious you are just posting to start trouble. Believe what you want, and leave the rest of the people the hell alone.

      • Bravo Marylou!!!!!!

    • Ohhh I am excited!

  59. Hi Blue, Hi Joy!
    Thanks you both for the birthday wishes, That was so sweet! As for the invitation to facebook, that sounds great, I will do that very soon. My Birthday was wonderful, I was a bit disappointed I didn’t get the CD I was praying for, but as I said before. As long as Steve Perry still walks the planet, hope still remains. Even if he never releases another CD, I am happy knowing he’s alive and well…Let’s face it, it’s not like he owes anything to his fans after all he’s given of himself in the past. I think his fans owe it to him to simply say Thanks Steve and accept that his life decisions are his own. May all the love he’s expressed to his fans forever be returned to him unconditionally…I know if Steve could see some of the wonderful comments made about him by all of you ladies, he would be thrilled in knowing just how much he means to us all.
    Thanks again for the kind birthday wishes and have a Perry lovely day!

    • Hello Love, Hi Everyone,
      I Missed your Birthday !! Well, happy birthday to you and I do hope it was a good one.

      I still hang onto the hope that Steve will do another album, but I won’t hold my breath on it. If he is happy with his life, that’s fine. I just get a little upset when he starts saying he’s working on new material and also tells Gary Marshall in Scotland that he misses performing.

      We all love him and if he did not want to do anything else, I wonder why he would not just say so. Frankly, I think he enjoys teasing us 🙂 Just listen to Summer of Luv, and the very last phrase “Please, get me to the Church on time.” Haha, what a sucker line that is for every woman who loves him.

      Our Stevie knows how to write them. I wonder how many women has listened to that song and WISHED he was singing it about them. I certainly have 🙂

      Either way, we still love you 🙂

    • Hi again Love! I’m sorry you didn’t get that CD you were hoping for, but happy to hear that you may finally join us all on FB. Remember, some of the ladies left their names on this thread, so if you find them, click “Friend Request” and I hope I’ll connect with you soon after that.

      I think a lot of people forget that our Steve had been diagnosed with a bone disease. People who have the same disease say it’s extremely painful and even though he had his hip replaced, it’s now more than 10 years later and he may be having some severe pain. He most likely takes meds for it. I think this is why he may not be touring again. It’s very sad because we all know he loves to sing and he has said he misses performing. I wish him well and hope he can be comfortable the rest of his life…and keep on singing and recording even for his own ‘personal use’.

      • Hello again Marylou and Blue,

        I agree with you Marylou, Steve sure knows how to tease, and yes, I too have wished it was me who’d be getting to that church on time with him. Oh well, though I still thank him for reminding me what it is like to be soooooooooo in love that nothing else seemed to matter. When I was so alone and feeling like life had lost it’s meaning, his songs reminded me what life is all about. When a person feels that much love and faith miracles happen. Surviving the pain of losing love seems like a miracle until we’re reminded where love begins…We never really lose love at all, we simply forget where we put it. What’s been given to the heart will remain forever if we allow it to dwell there. If any of you’ve ever noticed that when you feel anger, first instinct is to scream, I believe it’s because the heart does not accept feelings of that nature, If we choose to let the anger dwell in our hearts, eventually there’s no room left for love to live. Letting go of of pain is key to letting love remain. Contrary to popular belief, I believe we do cry tears for good reason. Anyway, yes, I love that man and will be forever grateful that he touched my heart the way he has. I love it when he teases! It makes me feel like a child again. Can’t help loving that! LOL As for Steve himself, I do pray he is happy, healthy, and strong enough to handle any pain that he may be subjected to. After all that heartache, I’m sure that physical pain bears no comparison in his view. I still believe that his passion for music will kick him in the rear and make him do an about face when the time is right. I mean, he’s stayed single all these years so I think music must be his boss by now…LOL Too bad for us!
        O.K. So I’ll stop rambling for now, This decaf coffee seems to pack quite a punch today! Anyway, I hope you have a lovely day ladies, I should get busy with setting up FB after the daily maintenance is complete. See ya soon!

      • Thank you Love- this hits home. As always you are very eloquent.

    • Hi Love,
      I just had a thought and so have others. If you do make a Face Book account we won’t know who you are, so if you make the account, look for Marylou Maxwell but don’t make the mistake of Mary Lou Maxwell because that’s my daughter 🙂 When you look it up and you find a pic it is of me and my hubby and we are both wearing black and white 🙂 Ok, there’s some info for you.
      Have a Perry good Night.

  60. Thanks Blue, Dont post a link, I will find him. We’ll let him enjoy the games in peace.

  61. Me again. I’ve been busy lately and haven’t had the time to check my favorite forums, but today I found something interesting. Go to Melodic Rock’s web page and go to the message boards. Click on Steve Perry and look for the topic of So when is the big Glee thing honoring Steve Perry. Someone claims to have seen Steve in the balcony while DSB is being sung. Go to page 2 and there is a picture of a man circled that really does look like Steve standing in the audience. Who knows if it is really him or not. There is also a link to the whole episode so you can check it out for yourself.

    • Hi Lisa M! On the Glee comment, I also saw that photo of a man circled on the balcony but couldn’t figure out how anyone could identify that person as Steve, too blurred. If you read more on this same thread, his friends from Fan Asylum commented that it was not Steve, he was not there for the taping.

    • I don’t really know if he was there or not. The man in the balcony looked
      like it could have been Steve but, Lora and Cyndy said he wasn’t there.
      I read that on MR the next day!! 😦 😦 It would have been great if he had been there. I believe since it was a Journey tribute, that he should have
      been there!!!

  62. I was reading an interview that was done with Nuno Bettencourt (my all time favorite guitar player and Steve’s fellow Portuguese stud muffin in my opinion) a while back and Nuno stated that he has written with Steve. He goes on to say that the songs are great and his(Steve’s) voice is great, but he can’t understand why Steve won ‘t release his new material. Nuno has urged him to release it, but he won’t. Go to The Official Extreme web site and the interview is in the forums somewhere, sorry, I don’t remember exactly where. He and Steve are friends and Steve was at the Extreme concert in Los Angles last summer.

    I, too, feel like giving up sometimes. It seems to be one let down after another. Steve just needs to committ one way or another, either surface or stay hidden, he can’t have it both ways. If writing new material is a hobby for him, then fine, just don’t talk about it if you plan on not doing anything with it. He has left us with a great amount of music and for that we are all grateful.

    • I agree with you Lisa 100%. HE NEEDS TO DO IT, OR QUIT TALKING
      ABOUT IT. Lately tho, he hasn’t done anything, no sitings or no news,
      and that is worse!!!!! Come on Steve, don’t let your fans down!!!! You
      know we love you, NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!

      • What is he talking about that is making some people upset with him??

        Steve Perry can talk about anything in my world, I love hearing his voice no matter what. Just look below during Feb 2010 and see how much excitement he created just by a few telephone interviews!

      • Hi Everyone,
        Ohhh you are right, I get frustrated when Steve makes the statements and does not follow through with them. I read one blog where someone wrote, ok Steve, it’s time to put up or shut up. Well, as much as I love you and your voice Stevie, it’s time. I hope you will come through for us. We have been waiting for a very long time.

        Hope everyone had a Perry Nice Weekend 🙂

      • I for one would listen to him talking about insurance if it was what he felt the need to talk about. Just knowing he is on the planet and in good health if enough to put a smile on my face. I must admit, I was hoping that today he would appear on my doorstep to sing me a happy birthday song in honor of this very special day, LOL, but, since when did I get everything I wanted anyway? I too hope he delivers something soon, on the other hand I could never be angry with a man who’s already spent half of his life in the public eye and may have doubts as to whether he wants to deal with the vultures once again. Ya gotta love him or ya don’t! Yes, I too would love to hear this new material he’s been speaking of, but for now, just to hear that voice of his saying anything at all, still warms my heart. Please try not to be impatient with him, but instead be thankful for what he has given us in the past. Each time I put on those headphones with any Steve Perry music, it brings an overwhelming feeling of joy, just knowing he is still on the planet! I will always smile knowing the world still has a few kind souls left in existence. I don’t care is he wants to talk about his hip surgery, beechnut gum, or shaving that thick mustache during a video shoot, I’d be willing to bet that somehow, he could make a bowel movement sound sexy! LOL Anyway, I’m off to enjoy my day and watch the sunset with my music blaring as usual. Hope you ladies have a beautiful day!

      • Hi Love!! I couldn’t think of a better reason to come back on here than to wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope someday you will consider joining us Steve Perry fans on Facebook, we have plenty of photos of him going around, but what we need is a kind-hearted poetess like you! And, btw, Steve is out and about. I’ve seen him with my own two eyes at the Dodger’s games! So enjoy the rest of your special day..

      • Happy Happy Birthday Love, Hope it was a great one. Thank you for your encouraging words. Blue, have you been to the Dodger games? or have you seen him on TV? I may have to become a Dodgers fan!

      • Hi Joy! The answer to your question is: no, I have not been to the Dodger’s games in LA but he can be seen on their website (do a search on LAD recaps for June 13, 4, and 1). Also, check for Dodger games (mostly home games) on your TV. He sits 7 rows behind home plate, usually in the center. If you can’t find him, I may consider putting one of the links here, but if he finds out we’ve located him, he may trade seats with someone who sits in a different area!

  63. Hello , i just wanted a leave a message for Blue. Steve said in his radio interview with Scottish radio DJ Gary Marshall in February 2010 that “I am writing music for some solo stuff i will be recording soon”. Those are his exact words. The interview is still on youtube, just search ” Steve Perry interviewed by gary Marshall February 2010, and you should find it. I hope this is the info you were looking for. Lynda

    • Lisa M, Lynda and Everyone, I’ve been trying to find a statement made by Steve Perry from last year where he says that he will be releasing a new solo album. This post is dated August of last year and that’s why I believe this New SP Album – 2010 post was just a rumor to begin with. I don’t believe the To Be Confirmed was ever looked into. A new SP album never appeared on any Upcoming Releases list. There was an interview between SP and CBC Radio in Canada last July but it was the DJ, not SP, who said after the interview that SP is working on solo material. I think that SP cleared up these rumors Feb of this year when he talked to Planet Rock radio and stated that he was recording for his own ‘personal use’ and that he’s not in the studio recording. I would think that any reference to recording in future interviews (i.e., Dave Campbell and Gary Marshall of the U.K.) would also mean for his own personal use. And SP is not out there promoting a new CD either, he could have made appearances on Idol and Glee according to what I’ve read. So I won’t be believing anymore rumors of a new SP album until I see something from the Upcoming Releases list or from Fan Asylum. All these bits and pieces of information about a new CD are really coming from people who wish for one.

  64. I’m sure you girls watched the finally of Glee
    With Olivia and Josh, but no Mr. Perry
    And so here we are disappointed again
    And wondering if Steve will come back and when

    S.P. Phone Home, we all miss you and long to hear your voice again!

    • Hi Love, Hi Everyone,
      Ok, that was a disappointing hour. I guess it’s a very cute show for teenagers, but I would not watch it.

      So, now we wait, hurry up and wait. I think the gal that had the blog, Put Up Or Shut Up has it right. Our Stevie boy needs to clarify his position. Sing or don’t sing. Make a new CD or stop talking about it.

      I will always love Steve and his music, but I think he has jerked the public around for too many years now.
      I’ll believe he has a new CD when I see it. Well my Perry Sisters, have a Perry nice day anyway. I have a lot to do today but I will have my earphones on 🙂

      • For all the Steve Perry die-hard fans, Glee was a bitter disappoint last night. I did like Lea Michele though. Most people wished he had made a cameo appearance.

        But getting back to Steve putting out a new CD and also the title of this forum, if anyone could post a link to when he said he was working on a solo album, I’d appreciate it. I went back to YouTube thinking of a phone interview where he stated he was in the studio working on an album. Can’t find it now, did he ever say that, or did someone else start these rumors?

      • Hey Marylou, I’m afraid I have to agree with you. I dont know what to believe anymore. When I read back through the interviews from this winter, he seems to be talking out of both sides of his mouth. I wish he would just be more consistent so we his loyal fans know whats up. I have felt for along time that he might be unsure of his voice and fan reception. Sources in the know say his voice is fine, maybe he just needs to be convinced that this is so. I guess we have no choice but to sit back and wait.

      • Blue, I could have sworn too that he said he was recording, whether a CD or singles I dont know. I tried to go back this morning to find them and couldnt. I did find on the Dave Campbell interview on the Nick Wright show that he was writing but not recording. He also wanted friends to give the thumbs up or down on his voice. The West Sound interview said he has new material he will be recording soon. Does any one remember a Canadian interview? I think thats where he said he was recording, but it was a week or so after the Nicky Horne (Planet Rock) interview where he said he wasnt recording. If there was a Canadian interview that someone remembers could you please post it.

      • Check out theothermrsperry.com. She has all three interviews on her site. Hope everyone is doing well.

  65. Hi Everyone! I’m just popping in briefly to remind you of Glee’s Season Finale this coming Tues June 8 on the Fox channel. I’ve seen a recent list of special guests and Steve was not on it, but I’m watching anyway. In case you miss it or just want to hear the songs, click on this link, then click Play beside the song. I really like Lea Michele who sings the songs, she even looks a little like Steve to me, especially when she wears her bangs straight down. Have a great weekend everyone!

    http://www.gleeforum.com/Journey-Songs-t7434.html

    • Hi Blue Hi Everyone,
      I was listening to some of the music. LOL………can’t help but laugh at those kids. I’m sure they worked their butts off with the songs. I have the 8th circled on my calendar but I’m afraid we are going to be disappointed with seeing our Steve.

      I will be watching anyway. By the way, has anyone heard from Cutlets? She was going to CA the middle of May and we have not heard anything at all. Sure hope she isn’t in jail from stalking 🙂 I will feel better once she posts again.
      Perry on………………

    • Well, what did everybody think? Even though I knew Steve wasn’t going to be on, I was still disappointed. I actually got goose bumps when they started with Faithfully. I did have to chuckle to myself, I live 30 minutes from Ft Wayne In. I wonder how they came up with that city? Overall, they did a good job.

  66. Hello everyone, As I’m writing this, Journey Live In Manilla is on VH1 classic. While I have to admit the new guy does have great talent, he’s just not Steve. It breaks my heart to hear him sing Open Arms. When I’m done here, I’ll have to change the channel, it’s more than I can take.

    • Joy,

      I agree he is good BUT NOT that good!

      I can tell instantly that it’s not Steve Perry so I immediately turn it off.

      I have zero desire to hear or see anyone else sing the Journey songs but Steve!

      Debs 🙂

      • I agree with you Debs. I too have no desire to hear the classics sung by anyone but Steve. I have tried to listen to that concert and I just can’t do it.

      • I agree, Nobody does it like Steve Perry!!! You can’t mimic what comes straight from the soul. Some may come close, but, it just ain’t the same. Once you’ve known the best, you simply forget about the rest…Hope your all having a great week!

    • I ABSOLUTELY agree!! I had an opportunity to go see the new Journey group live last year (they were playing at an arena that is only 20 minutes from my house, and I had a great discount on the tickets). Even though Arnel is probably considered better vocally then any of the other Steve Perry replacements, I just couldn’t get past the fact that it wouldn’t be Steve singing those songs – it just wasn’t RIGHT!! I know for a fact that it would’ve been a waste of time/money for me because I would’ve ended up walking out of the concert! :-((

      A.J.

    • Hi Everyone,
      No, I refuse to listen to them. I don’t want to hear any of their new music either. It’s Perry or nothing.

      Hope everyone had a nice holiday.
      Perry On Sistas……………….

  67. Hey Everyone!

    I thought I would start a Facebook Group: Steve Perry – Get him on Oprah Show. Type that in and you will find it. It has an avatar piccie of Steve playing the bass and singing at the same time!

    I just started this Group hoping to see if we can pull a Betty White on SNL for Steve.

    Please join up…should be fun!!! 🙂

    If nothing else we could have a damn good time! 🙂

    Debs 🙂

  68. Hey Debs, If you look to the right you will see a story about Journey album. Click on that then click on Caveman’s Diary. Once there you have to scroll down to find out about solo artist. It is mentioned right after Kevin Shirley talks about Iron Maiden. If you remember Kevin worked with Steve and Journey before.

  69. Has anyone been reading the caveman’s diary? He has mentioned twice that he’s been working with a solo artist who will come out of the woodwork when he is ready. I’m wondering if he might be talking about Steve and his new cd?

    • Ann,

      Who is caveman?

      Debs 🙂

      • Hey Debs, he’s on the right hand side, second article down. Click on Caveman or Caveman diaries to get to current diary. It would be marvelous if the mystery man was STEVE.

      • Hey Debs, when you read the diary you have to scroll down. He mentions the solo artist in two different places.

      • I tried to find it…can one of you copy & paste to here so that I can see it! I was going crazy trying to find it the last 15-20 mins! UGH!

        Debs 🙂

  70. This is just to reassure everyone that our Steve Perry is all right. Since yesterday, there have been internet news articles about comic writer Steve Perry, the man who had been fighting cancer. The articles claim he has been missing and is believed to have been murdered. Won’t go into any further details, but it’s all available if you do a google or other search. Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!

    • Hi Blue, Hi Everyone:

      Oh that was so sad!! The story itself that this comic book writer was so indigent that he needed help for all sources, then as he is fighting the worst beast on this planet, he goes missing. What a terrible thing to happen to him or anyone. My prayers are with him wherever he is 😦

  71. Hi Everyone! I think some TV shows will be talking about Journey & Steve Perry during the days leading up to Glee’s season finale, ET for one, maybe Access Hollywood and others. It’s just a hunch, but I will be watching those shows for sure. I even have a Steve Perry search programmed into my DVR! (apparently there’s an actor named SP from the Twilight Zone 1960’s series.) Have you ever read the Parade Magazine in the Sunday paper? People usually write in asking about celebs that have been out of the spotlight. I wrote them asking about SP in relation to Glee’s season finale tribute to him. Hope they pick my question!!

    • Ohhh…I hope like hell they pick your question!

      I will be watching all those shows because of the Glee finale! This could be really interesting for sure!

      Debs 🙂

    • —–I also wrote to Oprah asking if she would at least interview Steve on the phone (this is the last season of her talk show).

      —–I even wrote to TMZ asking their camera guys to find him in LA.

      As you can see, I am just as obsessed with this mystery man as the rest of you!

      Numbers help, the more people who write in the better our chances of hearing more about him.

  72. Hey Everyone…just a quick question for you all. Is there any contests going on that we need to vote Steve Perry on?? Because if there is I want to know so that we can vote like we did and kicked everyones butt doing it too!! 🙂

    Debs 🙂

  73. Ok, just saw a post on FB Group that said that she heard DSB on there as a lead in to an author they were reviewing on the ? Oh crap now I’ve forgotten the Morning Show she was watching. It was not the Today Show that I watch.

    Wish like hell I knew what this is all leading up too…it’s driving me crazy! LOL

    Debs 🙂

    • Just a little pep talk for Steve as we wait for a new CD…

      You Know it’s driving me crazy all this buzz about you
      They say you got something and I want it too
      Steve Perry I love you, but what can I do
      Got me going crazy for the love of you

      I can’t take much more please open the door
      Come on an’ give me what I’m waiting for
      Steve Perry…It’s you that I’ve always adored
      Come on Stevie give us Just1More

      Each time I hear another story bout you
      I feel my heart skip a beat or two
      I think I’m gonna die before my time is through
      For the love of Steve Perry I’m crazy for you

      I can’t take much more please open the door
      Come on an’ give me what I’m waiting for
      Steve Perry… It’s you that I’ve always adored
      So Come on Steve Perry give us Just1More

      • Oh Love, you never fail to perk me up! I really feel in my bones that Steve is working on stuff, but how will we handle the stress if it’s not done this year? POSITIVE THINKING! By the end of the summer, we will have a CD or DVD in our hands. Maybe Cuts ran into him this week and he filled her in on his plans. LOL That would have been my dream come true.

      • Love, why do we have the same picture thingy?

      • Hi Love, Hi Everyone,

        I do HOPE that you have all of these poems saved in a folder. This is so adorable.

        I agree, I feel it in my bones something is definitely going on. Good Morning America has been leading into commercial all week with Don’t Stop Believin’

        Others have heard songs being played. It’s weird how things are popping up all over the place. I am anxious to see Glee on June 8th. This summer I think we will hear something. I can just FEEL it.

        If we all think hard enough, maybe Stevie will get the message. I need to tell him I have something special to celebrate.

      • Hi Joy, Marylou,

        I did notice that about the picture thingy sometime ago. At the bottom of the thread it appears that two or three people have had it. I am not certain how that works Joy. Anyway, like you ladies, I do feel there will be something from Steve soon. I do hope it’s very soon, would be a great birthday gift from me to myself…
        Marylou, When is this celebration due to happen? I do hope you can celebrate it with a new Steve Perry CD, That would be special! I can just picture it, you and those dearest to you enjoying the fireworks and suddenly the most beautiful fireworks explode into a huge laser pictorial of Steve Perry face looking down over you like an angel from above as he sings his new release. LOL Wow, can I be there for that??? LOL As I’ve said before, imagination is a terrible thing to waste!

        I do hope cutlets gets to meet Steve on her adventure, I only hope she can keep her hands to herself without having convulsions and drooling all over herself…That would be difficult for any of us ya know! I hope you all have a great weekend ladies. Keep me informed if you hear anything new!

  74. OK, something is going on….just watching the Today Show again and @ 0745 I hear Journey singing The Party’s Over (Hopelessly In Love) from Captured.

    It was the lead in to a story of a Repo Man/Business!!!

    WTF is going on everyone??

    Whip lash is not good 2 mornings in a freaking row!

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi Debs, Hi Everyone:

      I do agree, this is very strange. For the past 2 mornings Good Morning America has been going off to a commercial with Don’t stop Believing. This cannot be just coincidence, I guess we just have to keep our ears wide open and wait.

      I requested to be friends on Eric Mayron facebook, but I don’t know if he has responded yet. I need to look.

      It seems that a lot of this stuff is coming before the Glee finale. It is so hard to wait like this, but my gut tells me it’s going to happen, but when is the question.

      Hope everyone is doing well. Wish we would hear from Cutlets.

      • Hello Ladies,

        I hope your all doing well. That is interesting to hear Debs, I do hope we hear some solid news soon. All this waiting is killing me!

  75. Holy Crud,

    Did you all see Today right now…they just played Steve’s song Stand Up (Before It’s Too Late) from FTLOSM!!!

    I just about got whiplash when I heard the first note and then Steve’s voice! Wow! Can they use that or do they have to have Steve write off on it??

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi Debs, Hi Everyone:

      Oh I seem to miss everything but I don’t have the TV on much during the day. It doesn’t seem like they should be able to play it but hey, it’s more advertisement for Steve.

      I hope that tweet was true that Steve is working on his CD and is backing himself up as well. That will prove interesting if he decides to tour, but with today’s electronics, it’s easy. I can’t wait for something new 🙂

      Does anyone know when Cutlets is due back?

      • The 1 hr fund raiser/concert is on Sept. 5th on ABC/CBS/NBC. Called Stand Up To Cancer. I will be watching!!!

        Wouldnt that be HUGE if Steve was there!!! 🙂

        Debs 🙂

        p.s. I will look at my email and find out when she gets back! 🙂

      • The guy who tweeted that Steve is backing up his new recordings by himself is on Facebook. He also posted his tweet on his FB Wall. To see what he said along with his friends’ comments, search Eric Mayron on FB, click on Wall, click Older Posts, and you’ll find it dtd May 7 or May 8. To me, he’s just joking around, but please let me know what you think! He does list SP as a client in his Info section.

  76. Thanks Blue! Will check it out now! 🙂

    Debs 🙂

  77. Michele from one of the FB Groups posted this. Not bad singing actually. I was kind of surprised.

    Cant wait for the finale June 8th!

    Hear a glimpse of 3 Journey songs, by Glee…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrqfo_HgYQk Got this from Michele…thanks!! Debs 🙂

    • Hi Everyone,
      Would you believe that Sony took that video off?????? THAT FAST. They obviously don’t want anything out about Glee either. Well, I will be watching on June 8th for sure.

      After hearing the news of Steve working on his CD and backing himself up, he might release something this summer. Sure hope so.

    • Glee sings 2 SP songs in this version, hope it works!

      • Real sorry, wrong video, I copy and pasted, don’t know what happened!

      • If you want to see this Glee video, go to YouTube and type in: Glee tour 2010 faithfully The video is 4:12.
        It hasn’t been yanked off…yet

  78. Good afternoon everyone, I found an article online I hadnt read before. It’s from 1995 in Faces magazine. The easiest way to find it, is to google FACES INTERVIEW WITH STEVE PERRY. On the same page is also an article MELODICROCK .com interview with Steve Perry from 2005 I believe. I had read this before, but it was good to go back and read it again. Both articles are good reads. They give more insight into the man he has become. With Ronnie James Dio passing, I was almost panic stricken with the thought of Steve going. I dont know how I would cope with the reality. I know you Perry girls can understand this. Someone left a message on U-TUBE saying they hoped Steve would hurry and make a new album before it’s to late and there are regrets. He has left us a great legacy, but that also leaves us craving more. Maybe there will be a greater urgency to get the album done now. I can only hope so.

    • Well Steve must be up to something big. He hasn’t been seen out and about, no photos, no tweets, no nothing except that he may be in the studio. I guess he really needs to concentrate on whatever he’s doing, maybe he really is getting ready to do another CD. I think 2010 WILL be the year!

  79. A little news about another finale, I read in the local newspaper this morning that Sarah Silverman’s show has been axed by Comedy Central. It was printed “Audience erosion was deemed the main reason for canceling the show”.

    I’ve also been reading the new thread on MelodicRock “Where is Steve Perry These Days?”. I’m sure you are also waiting for an answer. So far though, just hearsay. Have a good weekend, everyone!

  80. This is from Blue…she found this and asked me to post it. 🙂

    Good news Perry Fans!! I was just on Twitter researching stuff about Steve and this post came up–Steve Perry is alive and well and backing up his new recordings BY HIMSELF!! The guy that posted it was someone that went by emayron. I looked him up and his name is Eric Mayron. I went to his website and this is what it said: This website is about all things Eric Mayron. Eric Mayron is a Los Angeles based modern music singer/songwriter/producer. He plays guitar, piano and keyboards, bass, and a little drums. He is an ace vocal coach, arranger and programmer. Eric also designs the worlds finest, highest performance, most cutting-edge creative and recording computers for some of the world’s greatest music producers, recording artists and composers. Then I googled him and it said that he was also into programming, sequencing and editing. Sounds like our boy is ACTUALLY RECORDING!!!!! If this is true we may be hearing from him soon!!!

    • Ya-Hoo This is the best news I have heard all week!!!

    • Hey Debs! That wasn’t from me Blue but from your other friend on Facebook, Billie. I did see this myself last week on Twitter, this guy emayron said a little more which made me think he’s joking around. But maybe not, we know SP is recording, he said so in the UK phone interviews. The big question is when will he release those recordings for us to hear!

      • OOOPS! Sorry Blue. I did mean Billie!

        Will be interesting to see what happens!

        Debs 🙂

    • HI EVERYONE:
      WOW, that is Great news ! Best I have heard in quite a while. I know this is going to be the best CD Steve has ever done. You know how he always says he is his own worst critic, so it’s got to be good. BUT I also heard him say once that he wanted to write the Ultimate Song.

      I don’t know how he could do that since he has already done that so many times already………..but hey, go for it Stevie baby, we’re waiting with open ears 🙂

  81. Hey- do you guys have dvds of the FTLOSM tour? I bought one from Toronto on line. It’s basically someone videotaping the concert but it’s pretty good. Had to get my fix! lol. Anyway, if anyone has DVD’s of these concerts, or the Fargo or Japan, where do you get them? I need more! 🙂

    • Gina, Amazon did have a few Live In Japan DVDs but today they are gone. But you may find the Live in Japan at http://www.bluejay.com or http://www.cduniverse.com . I did a Google Product search and found these two places. Some are used, some new. These are DVDs, not CDs. Didn’t find anything on Fargo (did you mean Largo?) or SP solo concerts. Good luck!

  82. Hello everyone, I found an article that had me holding my sides laughing, but also filled me with longing. It’s at http://www.desertusa.com Click on Lara’s Lane at upper right hand side. Scroll down to Steve Perry. I dont know if any one else has seen this, but I thought it was worth putting on here. I hope this gets everybody to the right place. Enjoy!

    • Haha, Oh Joy, Hi Everyone:

      It had me fooled for a while until the latter part. Now I am so wired to look for that one video FTLOSM and Stevie grabbing his crotch.

      It’s pretty funny but ………….I will be surprised if I see anything like that. Glad you sent us the link.

      • Hmmm…I’ve never seen crotch grabbing by Steve. I tried to look up the site and couldnt find it. I watched 3 shows from FTLOSM and I didnt see it.

        Debs 🙂

      • I have seen it, but I dont know where. It is very brief, I dont know if it’s intentional. I have been going back through utube trying to find it also. I’m going to get the DVD out and look there, but I think I saw it on utube.

      • I found it! He’s not really grabbing, it’s more like caressing!? iT’S THE 94 TOUR, I think it’s in New York, LOVIN TOUCHIN SQUEEZIN song

      • Yeah, I knew that it was probably NY that he has his hand there but he sure didnt grab his 2 meat and veg. 🙂

        Someone said that he flat out grabbed them. I’ve never seen it!

        I just watched 3 of the FTLOSM concerts and never once did I see him grabbing his crotch.

        I was wondering what the hell I was MISSING! ROFLMAO!! 🙂

        Debs 🙂

      • Hi Joy, Hi everyone,

        Ok, I remember seeing that one on Lovin Touchin Squeezin. It certainly was not a crotch grab at all. I agree it was just a suggestive move. I like it, I didn’t like Michael Jackson’s Crotch grabbing. Never could figure out why that was so necessary.

      • Geez, we sure got distracted with all the possible crotch grabbing! LOL He doesnt need that to be sexy. The hottest thing I’ve ever seen is 2 beginnings to Wheel in the sky. Largo 1980, and Live in Japan 1981. (I dont know how to transfer these from Utube to here) but anyway check them out, they are my favorites. I really need to get a job, I’m spending way to much time searching out Steve things. If he would just bring out the new album, I wouldnt have so much time on my hands.

  83. Good morning everyone, I’m in my glory! After more than 3 months of no Journey videos on Vh1 classic, I caught 2 of them this weekend. ( I keep the tv tuned to Vh1 every morning all morning) There is nothing like having a video come on when your’e not expecting it. The heart starts to pound and the palms get sweaty and I cant catch my breath! Putting in the DVDs are fine for a quick fix, but catching them on tv is a special treat. Send Her My Love is especially sweet.

    • Hi Joy! I use to get the VH1 Classic channel and Journey was always on then. I know what you mean when SP shows up on the TV screen unexpected and I’ve been thinking about upgrading my channel offerings just to see him again on TV! Send Her My Love is my favorite song sung by Steve. Have a great day!

      • Hi Blue Hi Ladies,
        That must be very popular with all of us, for as many songs of his that I love, I usually think of that one more than any other, except Still they ride, but that’s special because I was there looking into his eyes.

        What a load of crap from Herbie Herbert that he never sees his fans. I know better 🙂
        Have a Perry nice day all

  84. Hey did you all know that Planet Rock has been having contests and the latest one was…Greatest Hair Band.

    I didnt even know…if you go on there on the right side is about 5 more contests that they have run.

    Best Intro Ever etc…

    Damn didnt even know!

    Debs 🙂

    • Hey deb! So who won for the best hair? Perry or Plant better have won since they both have great hair! Over the last few months you-tube has taken Perry/journeys songs off and then put some back on. I dont know why but here in NY Im hearing sp/journey alot on the radio more then usual. Im hoping it means something. I thought Journey with Arnel was suppose to put a new album out this month? I wonder what old perry/journey songs will be put on that one!!!

      • Cuts,

        Hey are you serious they are taking them off and then putting them back on! WTF!!! That is just stupid!

        I’m not kidding they have taken at least 6 that I had saved so far off!

        I have been hearing Journey/SP as well more on the Classic Rock Station. BUT NOT ARNEL…THANK GOD! I would have to kill someone! LOL

        GIRL YOU NEED TO CHECK YOUR EMAIL INBOX!!! 🙂

        Debs 🙂

      • Hey girl, A few months ago they took off When You Love A woman and then put it back on with another journey song. I dont know how it is now because I have not been on you-tube for a month! LOL Ill check my e-mail girlfriend!!!

  85. Hi Everyone! I don’t think the Journey Glee episode is going to be what we’ve been hoping for. I’ve been reading up on it, no mention of SP, just a few Journey songs and also Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, special guest stars Josh Groban and Olivia Newton-John. This episode has already been taped. I hear the Journey songs will be Faithfully, DSB, Girl Can’t Help It, & Anyway You Want It. I’m so dissapointed that this episode is not really a tribute to SP as was indicated a while back and has none of SP’s solo songs. Here’s just one of the links for your info:

    http://glee.wikia.com/wiki/Journey

    • Blue,

      Might not but you never know. Steve was at the Golden Globes when Glee won and I saw him in the audience. I will be watching for sure because with SP you just never know where that man will pop up at! 🙂

      I have it on my Outlook calendar and I will be watching Glee for the first time! LOL

      Debs 🙂

    • Hi Blue, What else is new! They give Madonna a whole show but perry gets dick! Yet their first show does DSB. You know somethings very wrong when they acknowledge Lady Ga,Ga, who looks like a crack whore from Mars! and they leave Mr Perry on the sideline!!!GRRRRRRR!!!

      • Cuts, Debs, I was just expecting the entire episode to be dedicated to Steve Perry and Journey with Steve making a guest appearance (since he was visiting the set). I’m sure the producers of Glee asked Steve to be on the show, but you all know how he is about being seen. I read another article by someone who was there at the taping of this finale and Steve was not mentioned. I will be watching it anyway, all the singers on Glee are very good!

  86. What the hell is going on with YouTube?

    I just tried to listen to 2 Journey songs and they have been taken off! That is about the 6th one that I’ve had to delete from my library of tunes.

    Debs 😦

    • What were the songs that you were trying to listen to? I too have lost a few videos from youtube.

      • I’ve been wondering the same thing. Alot of the videos that had several million hits have been removed. VH1 Classic used to play Journey videos everyday. Now there hasnt been one since Jan! Are they on the blacklist or what?

      • The last one I lost last night is…Journey Raised On Radio (Complete Version) Live

        There was another 1 or 2 yesterday that I cant find now.

        What the hell is that all about!!! Jerks at Sony!!!!

        There is so much live footage out there and greedy jerks wont put them on DVD and sell them but sure as hell dont want anyone else to see them! I would give my right freaking arm for all those vids from the 70’s through 94 in a heart beat!!!! And I know a ton of others that would as well.

        Debs 🙂

    • I just went on youtube and couldn’t get the video for anyway you want it. It says that it belongs to sony entertainment and is no longer available in my country. WTF is going on. Maybe they don’t want Steve with Journey played more then Arnel with Journey. The video with Steve had over 4 million views. Lets see Arnel beat that

      • Ann,
        I just went to youtube and found Any way you want it live in Houston 1981. They wouldn’t DARE take that off. There is a DVD of that concert so someone else would just put it back on.

  87. Hello everyone, I found an article on Steve and DSB and the success of Glee. It was in the LA Times on Wed. It’s easier to find at steveperryonline.net
    With the input he’s had from the beginning, why wouldnt he be on the finale?

  88. Hi ladies,

    What’s Up? Anymore news lately? I still have hope that we’ll hear something soon. If I don’t hear anything from him before the day they bury me, I will just die! LOL No, seriously though, all these years of waiting have taken a toll on me, but I still believe that there’s hope after hearing his latest interviews. Speak to me girls if you have anything new…

    • Hi girls, Thanks mary I just have been very busy with family and took a break from the boards but Im back! Hope all is well with you and Lisa’s dad. Yes my trip should be great and who knows maybe I will even run into our steve! hopefully not with the car!!!

    • Hi Love,
      I WISH I could tell you we heard something but I have heard nothing at all. There was a website where a woman was blogging as if she were talking to him and one part of it said “Put up or shut up.” I thought it was very funny and feel basically the same way.

      Here we are, all his faithful fans waiting and waiting. Each time he has an interview we hear him say, “well I’m writing again, or I really miss performing……………” Ok Steve, it’s time …………so I agree with the other lady that said Put Up or Shut up.

      I would love to have a new CD, but if Steve would rather have his privacy, then stop jerking us around. HAVE your privacy but SAY SO. That’s all.

      I am waiting for the Finale to Glee, got it marked on my calendar so I don’t forget about it.

      There are so may ways Steve could do things from the comfort of his own home via his website, and I cannot for the life of me understand what it is that keeps him from making a move. Oh well, and so we wait……………..

      • Hey Mary,LOL Thats priceless and spot on what that lady said! I feel the same way only because he does not put a stop to these rumors that go around about a new album. I still feel hes going to release something this year I just hope its an album and not gas. Im still waiting for Robert Plant to rejoin Led Zeppelin!!!

      • Hi Marylou, Is June 8th the date for the Glee finale? I tried to find it online and couldnt find anything!

    • Hi love, Wheres the perry poems!!!

      • Hi cutlets,
        Sorry I’ve been away, I do have time for a quickie poem at the moment, Uh, let’s see…I want to ride with Steve Perry upon a ferry to cross the rivers of gold, I’d like to ask Steve Perry if we could get married before we grow too F-n old. I know it sounds crazy, I know it’s unfair, to all of those women who love, the Man of their choice with that soft loving voice that”s sent from the heavens above. But I go on dreaming, I’ll find some way, to show him these feelings I hide, I’m praying that some day, like all of you girls, he will someday make me his bride! OOO[s, that would probably scare him off, O.K. so I’ll just say I couldn’t think of anything better to say at the moment… I know you girls can relate! Anyway, Happy Mother’s Day to all of you sweet Mothers out there…Hope you have a lovely weekend!

      • Love, enjoyed the poem, had a good laugh ! I completely understand the sentiment.

  89. Hey everyone, I just found something that has me very upset. It’s on http://www.trampmagazine.com. It says that Steve has died and they are waiting on confirmation from Journeys camp??? I dont know if this is still from a couple of weeks ago concerning the other Perry. That part is odd. The rest of the news is dated today. Check it out and see what you think.

    • Write steve perry in the search at the top of the page

      • Hi Joy, Hi Everyone,
        There was another Steve Perry, I think on Facebook that was very sick. It’s possible that this is the one.

        Steve did look just fine when he was at the Atlanta airport with Mark Wills last month, however, as we all know anything can happen. Guess we will wait and see,but I don’t think it’s our Steve.

      • Hey Marylou, I hope you are doing well today. I have scoured the web and cant find anything else. If this was even remotely true, why would Journey make the confirmation? I think that magazine is out of the UK. They are probable just now getting the news of the other Steve Perry who does have albums on Amazon. I havent heard that he has died either though. Like you said, time will straighten this out.

      • Hi Joy,
        Yes, that is what I found online, June 8th and I circled my calendar 🙂 I hope we are not disappointed but my gut feeling says we will be pleased.

    • Ill tell you what I think! I think who ever wrote this in that magazine should have his balls cut off! Something like this could give me a stroke, and besides perry knows well he will know that Im going to CA in 2 weeks! I heard nothing on the news about this and thankgod I didnt! The man is alive and well I think!!!

      • Cuts…I agree! 🙂

        Debs

      • Hi Cutlets,
        I have not seen you around and was actually getting worried. Glad to see you are ok.

        Have a great trip.

      • This is starting to get confusing. The comments arent put in where you think they are going to be. If you go to the bottom of the page and write, it doesnt write right LOL We have also lost out identifying snowflakes.

      • I guess I should have scrolled down before posting my last comment, I didn’t see you were back until I had already done so. I hear you girls! It’s sick what people will do and say to gain a few seconds of attention. Steve is alive and well, otherwise, I would close my eyes and fade away, dying from Broken Heart Disease! I do know one thing, I hesitate before falling for the gossip about him, I never take it to heart before investigating the facts. Anyway, I hope all is well with you gals. I’ll be checking in later, Be good!

    • WARNING, hey everybody. I just tried to get into the web page that I put on a week ago, and my online security wouldnt let me in. I’m just warning everyone else NOT TO TRY IT!
      Glad to see you are back cuts. I have missed everybody lately. Just PATIENTLY waiting for new news, good news of course.

    • DONT TRY THIS SITE! IT HAS SOMETHING FUNNY GOING ON!!!!

    • See my comments below, I’ve been trying to get this at the top of the page. I could get in this site last week, now all hell breaks lose on my computer when I try to get in. I suggest no one try.

    • Hi Joy,
      I went to the website but could not find what you are stating. Can you give me some direction?

      • Hi Marylou, I think you were able to find the site last week because you left me a comment about the other Steve Perry on Facebook. For everybody else, I found this site last week. I think it’s some kind of gentlemans(?) magazine web site out of the UK.There was a short acticle about Steve dying and they were waiting confirmation(?) from the Journey camp. I thot that was odd. The rest of the articles were dated the same day I was on. I think they were getting confused with the other Steve Perry who must be having health problems. After seeing the comment left by Cuts today, I tried to get back into that site and all kinds of bells and alarms went off on my computer. I would suggest no else try. I’m hope this clears up some of the confusion.

  90. Hi Girls,
    I haven’t been here for a while, my dad has been sick.
    I was reading my local daily paper today and came accross an article titled “Glee” a musical success as much as a cult success. Interesting, mentions about what music will be in this season’s episodes, specifically mentions AC/DC, the Beatles and Madonna who will get her own episode dedicated to her. Here’s the good news(I think), it mentions that the DSB by Journey has been jumping the charts since it was on the show, hitting #1 on iTunes and that one of the characters on the show will be doing a duet with a legendary guest star later in the season. Could this be who I hope it is?? I remember reading that there was supposed to be an episode about Steve Perry and Journey for the finale and since it has been made public that he has been visiting the studio, well, what do you think? This would make for a fantastic finale, right?

    Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

    • Hi Lisa! Hope your Dad is doing OK now.

      Well, I’m wondering too, who could that legendary star be? The season finale on June 8 (?) isn’t that far away. The season premiere starts tonight after Idol, I’ll be watching all the episodes this season (actually I listen more than I watch). It would be unbelievable to see SP on a TV show!

    • Hi Lisa,

      I do hope your Dad is all better! I didn’t see the article about Glee but, I hope you are right in guessing it would be Steve. That would draw more ratings than any episode so far, of this I am certain! I do hope you are right!!! I just dropped in to see whats new, if you hear anymore about it please let us know…Till next time ladies, have a beautiful week!

    • Hi Lisa,
      I sure hope you dad is doing much better now. It would make a great finale to the show and I hope the finale tribute includes Steve live and in person. That would be SO great.

  91. Good morning girls, so is he or isnt he making a new album? Why all the disparity? If there is a album, I would think he would want all the publicity he can get. He has mentioned several times that he cant sing in the shower the way he can at concerts. I wonder if he is unsure of his abilities and is testing the waters.

    • Hi Joy,

      In his February interviews he simply said he is thinking about it. Nothing certain except that he would love to records some of his new stuff, which he is very proud of. All of us are here with the same wish…To find out if and when, many of us still believe! I don’t know if you heard the February interviews but, he sounds great and his latest pic is gorgeous! The links are posted somewhere below for both the pic and the interview…

      Hope you ladies have a great afternoon!

      • In the interview with the dj from Scotland he stated that he had some new stuff and would be recording it soon. So I’m guessing sometime this year we may hear it.

    • Joy, there was talk last year that he would be releasing an album by Dec 2009. I believe a radio guy said he was working on a solo album as well as others who claimed to be working with him on his solo album. There may be a solo album released this year, so while we’re waiting, we tend to start chatting about other SP things. I’d really like to know what these other musicians are posting about him, that might give a clue if this new CD will happen soon or not.

    • Hello Joy, i havent been on here before, i just noticed your comment about Steve making an album or not. I was on You Tube this morning, on the Foolish Heart video, someone left a comment that said Randy Goodrums official website had some information about Steves album on it. I had a look, and it does say that Randy is writing for Steve. If you google Randy Goodrum and go onto his official website, go into the biography site, you can flick thru Randys biography by clicking onto the little biography book. Read thru the book and the info is there.

  92. Marylou and Everyone:

    Wiki is an online encyclopedia. Any person can edit and add to it. Here’s the link to Steve’s page:

    http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Perry_(musician)

    In the section Personal Life, it mentions his relationship status.

    In the section In The News, 4th paragraph from the bottom, it mentions “as many metal musicians have posted, he’s (SP) not doing much anymore”. This is an online petition which I cannot find on the net, can anyone else try to find it?

  93. well girls, it looks like another deposit has been made by Audrey. I refuse to see what she has to say this time.

    • Hi Joy, Hi Everyone:

      Haha, I won’t bother either. The only science fiction I like is LOST 🙂

      Guess she’s looking to get some kind of nod as a ghost writer? OR what???

      Has anyone heard from Cutlets? I’m getting worried.

    • Hey Everyone!

      I’m trying to remember when Cuts was suppose to go to CA!

      I will try and email her again and see if I get a response!

      I’m sure she is fine! 🙂

      Debs 🙂

    • Hi Everyone:

      Something is bugging the heck out of me. There are those that believe our Steve has a daughter Shamila, in NC. I have done some research and one persons says this girl’s name is Shamila Brame Arnold (Arnold being her married name) Also, I was told she lives in Raeford, NC.

      So I did some googling. She is on FACEBOOK, and also some kind of page from where she graduated high school looking to connect with old friends.

      On the Facebook, it has a picture of her and the 2 boys, and she is very thin. It also says that her Birthday is August 4, 1971. Well, our Stevie would have been 22 when she was born then. Southern Cali is a long way from NC. and he sure was not on tour then.

      I Just cannot buy this at all. I am almost tempted to friend her on Facebook. If Steve had a REAL daughter, I don’t think it would have escaped the Gossip Rags. I’m still going to search a little more but I would sure like to know what everyone thinks of this.

      • Hi Marylou, I took a look and yes, that’s her. She has been seen with Steve at the Monster premier and more recently at the San Diego zoo. I have heard Steve wasn’t told about his daughter by the mother for sometime after her birth. Her mother may have moved her to NC at some point or she just moved there on her own (college, job, etc.) She looks great!

      • This has bugged me for a long time also. The selfish part of me wants him to stay single and available, like I have a chance LOL! I guess I must have mentioned this to my husband, because more then once he has said “dont you want him to be happy?” Yes, I want him to be happy, more than any thing else. ( except for a new album) I am having my first 2 grandbabies this summer and I’m very excited .He must have been elated to find out he had a daughter and grandchildren to share his life with. There must have been alot of times in life that he was lonely. His Grandparents have to be long gone by now. I dont know how much other family he had. So after several stern lectures from my hubby, I hope he does have family. I’ve always wondered how things are kept quiet. At the very least there would be neighbors that would spill the beans. I am curious though to see it’s true. I say go for it!!!!

      • Hi Marylou, I also just looked at her Facebook photo and that is the lady standing with Steve at the Monster premiere and at the Zoo (as Lisa pointed out). There’s also a photo of them on a water ride together wearing ponchos (the MelodicRock site says it’s his daughter). I do believe he has a daughter and grandchildren! Now Shamika will probably get hundreds of Facebook friend requests. Thanks for researching this Marylou!

        As far as Steve being available, have you seen the fairly recent Wiki entry about this?

        I’d also like to read more about the online petition where other musicians are making comments about what SP is doing these days, so if you can find it, please let me know (this is also on Wiki’s In the News section but has no link)

      • Hi Everyone,
        No, I have not seen any entry on Wikki site. In fact I don’t even know what that is.

        Also, I did not know there was any online musicians site talking about Steve either. If someone has the link, I would appreciate it if someone could send it to me.

      • Marylou-

        This may sound strange. I came upon this Blog and wanted to comment on your question on whether or not Steve Perry has a daughter or not. Again this may sound completely fabricated, but it’s not. I am 41 years old. I grew up in South FL. My family used to go down to the FL Keys every sumer when I was a kid. When I was 16 and in the FL Keys for vacation I met a girl (Summer romance type thing) who claimed she was Steve Perry’s daughter. She told me her name was Shamila. She also told me that Steve Perry wrote the song “Send Her My Love” to her mother for her, their daughter (Shamila). Now at 16 and back in the 80″s I thought it was pretty cool that I was “dating” a Rock Stars daughter. I had no reason not to believe she was who she said she was. In fact, she’s the one who brought up the fact that her dad was a famous singer. When we first met she asked, “my dad is in a band, guess which one”? And I swear this is all true, I guessed Steve Perry from Journey because she looked exactly like him (in a cute teenage girl kind of way). But, there was no doubt in my mind that Steve Perry was her dad.

        Anyway, the other day a childhood friend of mine and I were talking and he asked if I remembered that girl I met when we were 16 who said she was Steve Perry’s daughter. I told him yes and we decided to Google her name and see what came up. Which brings me to how I found this Blog and your question. So, believe me or not, but that’s what happened when I was 16 and I think that the girl I met, Shamila, was Steve Perry’s daughter.

  94. Hey Girls,
    Check this out! I think I have seen a picture of Steve in this car before and now if you got a ton of cash laying around you can own it.

    http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/cto/1685052435.html

    • Thanks Kel! I’d be buying that VW Beetle if I only lived closer to the SF Bay area. I also drove a Beetle back in the high school days. (btw, do you all know that you can get a 360″ view of a house using Google Earth by dragging the little man?)

      • Blue,

        I would love to buy it also. Who knows maybe I would find a locket of his gorgeous hair in between the seats!
        And yes I have used and loved google earth for years now let me tell ya it has saved me a lot of gas and time driving around trying to find someones address…but thanks!

    • Hi Ladies,

      Wow! What a coincidence, I owned one just like it in the 80’s, same year, same color and never knew he owned one as well. I nearly drove the wheels off before I sold it…Wish we could of hooked up back then, just think… Steve Perry and I could have had twins together! LOL Anyway, thanks for posting that kel. Very interesting, I am sure someone will pay the money for it!

      Enjoy your weekend everyone!

      • I also just tried to see the photo of his VW bug again, and it is gone. But what I meant by the Google Earth is (and I’ve been using it for years also) it use to be all you could see were rooftops, now you can see the front of the house or anywhere the ‘little man’ is dropped and it will spin around 360 degrees. That’s what I learned recently.

    • Hi Kel, I misssed it! the author took it down. Did you by any chance save the pic. I’m dying to see it. I’m assuming its a Beetle.

      • Joy,

        Sorry I did not keep a picture of it…Maybe I helped them sell it? LOL I would like a commission if that’s the case!
        It was a almost navy blue bug with solid white wall tires and chrome wheel covers.And not in the best shape I did notice some rust on the bumpers and wheel covers.

        Have a great day:)

  95. Debs, have you heard from Cuts? She left several comments on the Top Ten pages, but I dont know when. I have followed her for several months on different spots around the web, I dont think she has ever gone this long without leaving a message somewhere! CUTS WHERE ARE YOU?

  96. Ann, those stories about Steve doubles are not on his Wiki page but are on This Page, look to the right under Recent Entries by Audrey Owen (and they are dated April Fools Day).

  97. What the HECK! Its a little late for Aprils fools, but it did have me going for awhile

    • Hi Joy! It’s mentioned in the “In the News” section on Steve’s Wiki page. Did you read it? I don’t know if it’s a joke or not because it doesn’t have a reference link and I can’t find anything about it doing a google search.

      • Hi Blue, Steves wiki page had me confused also. This didnt sound like something I thot he would do, but who knows. I was refering to the Audry Owen entry. It isnt appearing here, have to click on her name.

      • I can’t find the story about the steve doubles on his wiki page. Could some one post a link . I would like to read it

    • Hi Joy, Hi Everyone:

      I kinda agree that it’s a little late for April Fool’s but find the entire Steve DOUBLES ridiculous. I have been at concerts twice to Frontiers and once to Raised on Radio, and both times I could have hit Steve with a spit ball.

      Steve Doubles is absurd ……….downright STUPID. I could spot a different Steve a mile away when my eyes were better than they are now, and the’re still pretty good.

      To tell me in a stupid story that I could have been eye-locked with a Steve Double is like telling me I don’t know crap about his music.

      So tell me, do these people get paid for this crap???

      • Hey Marylou, I’m rather offended by this whole thing. We are serious Steve Perry fans looking for like minded souls to share our information with. I dont think its very funny either. Steve has way to much integrity to pull a stunt like that. I never had the chance to see him in concert- I would die to have the chance now. I would like to see this taken down, isnt it slanderous in some way?

      • Hi again Marylou, I hope you continue to feel well. The author of these articles left a message for nu-Knuk at the bottom of page 1. She wants to keep track of her hits. I would like an explanation. Why would Steve have a double here instead of Japan. They would be less likely to know what he looked like. A GLOW in his throat and levitation! Give me a break! We all ready know he has a glow in his throat-DAH I’m sure she’s sitting at her conputer having a huge laugh. She wants attention, so this is my last comment on this subject. She’ll go away if ignored with no hits. P.S. I loved your comment STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES

      • That Audry Owen article was on Facebook Apr 2 and most of us thought it was an April Fools joke since it’s dated Apr 1, so I don’t understand why it was brought to Scarab since it’s full of baloney.

      • Hi Everyone,
        Has anyone checked on Cutlets lately? I am beginning to worry.

        You know the less we remark about what this person wrote, the less attention it will get. I assume that is what she is looking for, so I don’t intend to give it any more life than it already got here.

        Creeps looking to make a name for themselves.

        PS. so far so good. Last Monday my doc said I am doing great 🙂

      • Hi Everyone,

        I am still laughing at this Steve DOUBLES thingy. That’s so damned funny. I can look at one of the DVDs or one of the performances on youtube, and unless Steve found an alien who he could clone, there is no way any BODY would look like his.

        Steve has such distinctive features, body build, facial expressions, body language, let alone his face and hair, it would be impossible to find another Steve Perry look alike, WITH a voice to boot?

        This person along with the doctor need psychiatric help and I don’t want to read whatever else she has up her sleeve. The doubles did it for me. Bitch looking for some a little exposure.

        Got an idea, run naked on the freeway. That’ll give you more exposure than this crazy ass article.

        Yes I am offended and sorry I bothered to read this hair brained crap.

    • I know…the first part I could believe. The rest NOT SO MUCH!!!

      I just laughed like hell and moved on!

      Doubles…yeah right! NOT!

      Whatever blows their skirts up I guess! But would anyone believe that BS…ahhh NOT! 🙂

      Debs 🙂

      • Ok, I have to admit that it is (kinda funny) she sure has a great imagination !

      • Hi Joy, Hi Everyone,
        So many people write stuff that you wonder how those gossip magazines could get away with what they do, but the fact that this Doctor is accusing Steve of using Doubles would indicate some sort of action on Steve’s part. I would think it could easily come under the category of slander, since it is slandering his good name but claiming something that to me is IMPOSSIBLE.

        I am totally shocked that anyone would write something SO STUPID, saying that Steve couldn’t keep up with his own voice.

        It seems that since Steve announced that he has music in the works and a possible CD this year that a lot of crap is coming forward. Remember Sara Silverman?

    • Hi ladies…sorry I have been gone for awhile. My email has been down for quite a few days and I just got it back up tonight. I have spent the last hour catching up on all this. I have only two words for this garbage. F A N F I C T I O N !!!!
      Onto reality. Hope you all have been doing well. I know I keep up with some of you on facebook, but not sure if Cutlets and Lovemso has joined us. Cuts and love please join us on facebook. We have a lot of fun there, too. I am Lisa White. My icon is now the new picture of Steve. If you do join us, please let me know your name on here so I know who to permit. Talk to you soon.♥♥♥

  98. Hello Ladies! I was just looking over SP’s Wiki page and see someone added that he won Best Singer of the March Bracket Brawl. But also noticed a new mention of an online petition in progress to replace the progressive metal band Dream Theater’s James Labrie with Steve Perry! I couldn’t find this petition online so it may be a joke.

  99. Ladies, Look up Most desirable male singers in the world, Arnel was on the list. Steve wasnt. How could that be? I added him on, vote girls vote.Lets move Steve up to the top!

  100. Hey Everyone!

    Not sure where to post this but oh my god…this lady is freaking hilarious! She has a great sense of humor about SP! I’ve been reading her blogs and I’m telling you I was laughing out loud! She was that funny!!!

    Here is her link check it out:

    http://chosenmadness.wordpress.com/steve-perry-does-not-exist/

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi Debs, I found her too when I went to vote. She is really funny. For some reason I couldnt vote last night, but today I was able to. You really have to search to find the right place. The voting is kinda weird. I noticed that Cuts had left a comment. I dont remember if it was dated, so she is around somewhere. Hope all is well with her. Have a Perrylicious day ladies.

    • Hey all, Just read her blog and it was great. she does indeed have a great sense of humor about Steve. It all seemed so true.

    • Hey,

      Just found out that the lastest site that SP is in 10th place they have other contests on there and shows Arnel in 9th and Steve around 12th. One doesnt even have Steve on the list. So go back and vote…way better then Arnel!

      Debs 🙂

    • Oh Geezz, she is good I LOVE Put or Shut up. Hahaha, I hope Steve gets to read it cause it’s TRUE.

      Can somebody send me some links to other places that are having voting contests with Steve in them?

      Arnel CAN”T be ahead of our guy. That’s a disgrace.

      • Hey Marylou, Go to Debs mesage, it should be below us. This will take you to top ten lists. Click on Music. I was able to find greatest male singer, group, ballad with Open Arms listed. I think thats where I saw a comment from Cuts. I also found HOTTEST MAN, Steve was on there but way way down the list!! You have to do alot of looking and clicking. I hope this is what you are loking for.

  101. Hey All!!!!

    Here we go again!!! 🙂

    Carol Sue Burnett http://www.the-top-tens.com/lists/greatest-singer-of-all-time.asp>

    Ok guys he won that last one and he can win this one to. Come on Perry fans vote, lets make them hear us and that includes Perry and Journey!

    I already voted!!

    Debs 🙂

  102. Hi all, I found a forum that has pics of Steve on that I have never seen before. I cant find the right page when I go to the site, so I’ll take you the round about way to get there. Goggle Melodicrock Forum Steve Perry new/rare pics. Second line down should be the right line to click on. Hopefully you find the right place. There are some interesting folks on this forum. Enjoy the pics.

  103. Patty from another group said that Brian Blades blog today was that he couldnt believe that SP won over all those other singers. Check it out. I posted a reply but it’s not showing yet. I tried to be respectful but I wanted to gloat! LOL

    I was basically not amused! But I was nice! UGH! Just about killed me BUT I was nice.

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi Debs!
      I left a comment too. Basically told him if he didn’t understand how Steve won, then he should listen to ALL of Steve’s music…Hell, Steve is hot enough to cook pancakes in a blizzard in the middle of Alaska and still melt the butter! Not to mention he’s so sweet he could make a sundae out of a Friday. LOL Oh yea, he could also make a caveman cry! I read Brians blog and found myself laughing inside as I realize once again, those that don’t listen to all of Steve’s music, just don’t get it the same way his true fans do…Perry fans get the entire picture! Ooh, speaking of pics, I think I’ll go look at that gorgeous face again!

      • Now I’m mad too. I was able to pick your comment out Love, you are so eloquent. Lynyrd Skynyrd are you kidding me? kinda red necky

      • I’m NOT going to argue with those people, they arent worth my time. We true Perry girls know we have been Blessed By Steve!! As far as I’m concerned, there is no other music to listen to. My husband knows when we are in the car, we listen to Steve- end of discussion

      • Joy,

        I wont argue but I will get my point across! What a jack ass!!

        And then to say that there is no way he is playing 2 Perry songs in a row like they are suppose to!! I wanted to rip him a new one!

        Debs 🙂

      • Hey girls…I added Bryan as a friend on facebook, ripped him a new one, he responded and then immediately deleted me. LMFAO! No worries…who needs friends like that? I said what I had to say and now I wash my hands of it and the station. He claimed it was a joke and that Steve Perry fans are mean. I told him he messed with the wrong fans. Enuff said.

  104. Thanks Blue, the picture of the month is down right YUMMY! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Trial By Fire era with his long hair. In the current picture of him at the Atlanta airport , it likes like he is letting his hair grow again. I think thats a really good sign of a new album and videos!!!

    • Oh, you’re welcome Joy! I also think he’s secretly up to something while letting his hair grow longer and longer!

  105. Hello Everyone! I was out yesterday but did vote for Steve before I left. Now that he is the Winner for BEST ROCK SINGER IN THE WORLD, do you think that Rock101 WROQ will notify him? Will they send him a prize? I sure hope he receives some kind of recognition for being the winner of this contest.

    Anyway, I’m loving this warm and sunny Spring weather, open windows, and thinking of our man Steve!

    • Hey Blue,
      I’m wondering the same thing! I’m hoping this will at least bring him out for another interview. He should at least find out how many of his fans have not stopped believing in him! I Oh and thanks for moving that photo link up. It Is nice to look at Steve over and over and over…Can’t seem to get enough of that gorgeous face!

      I hope you all have fun celebrating Steve’s win by giving yourselves a well deserved pat on the back for your efforts in assisting him and enjoy the day by all means… Please let me know if you hear anymore news! After all, it’s because of fans like you all that tell the rest of the fans about those links and polls that bring the rest of the fans together to show our appreciation for Steve… Bravo Ladies!

  106. Joy, this fan site page has the recent picture of Steve Perry (no membership required!)

    http://www.fortheloveofsteveperry.com/page66.aspx

  107. Lisa, I think it was you that mentioned some time back that you go to Del Mar quite often with your husband on business. Did you go a couple of weeks ago, did you manage to run into Steve? Maybe you wrote about it and I missed it, I’ve been wondering. I didnt get to see him in Jan when we were there. My hubby says we can go again soon. I WANT TO GO NOW! I know he likes the races and they will be starting soon.

    • Hi Joy, ladies…

      Joy you said you were in the mood for a Steve Perry Spring poem so I decided to take a break and throw one out there.

      While watching as the flowers bloom, I felt the breath of spring
      Inhaling all it’s freshness, my heart began to sing
      Decided I would take a trip, a pleasant scenic drive
      Steve Perry on my radio, A road map at my side
      I drove for miles and didn’t pass a soul along the way
      I took a detour by mistake that led me to California
      Cal a forn i a (spoken with a hick accent so it rhymes with way)LOL
      Anyway…
      Came to a place Called Del Mar, where I filled up the car
      Deciding I would have a drink, I found a local bar
      I ordered wine and later on I grabbed a bite to eat
      Decided I would spend the night in hopes that I could meet
      That handsome guy they talk about who’s voice is pure as gold
      Now that would be a dream come true to have that man to hold
      I searched the city over and didn’t see a trace
      The look of disappointment was written on my face
      It seems I’m just a dreamer, like all the other ones
      Who caught that Perry fever, that makes them come undone
      We never think of giving up if there’s hope to be found
      Each spring we go there praying That Steve will be around
      Oh well my friends I must admit it, I know it’s just a dream
      But tell me what’s a better way to spend a lovely spring?

      So now it’s time to make my way across the desert floor
      Knowing still that next year, I’ll be back coming back for more
      Listening as I drive along Steve sings who’s crying now?
      Then I remember suddenly what I’d forgotten, but how?
      I took a long vacation without telling anyone
      I left my kids, my job and now my husbands probably gone
      So now I find I’m standing up against the wall
      Still listening as Steve’s singing what’s left after the fall

      Oh well, maybe next year I’ll find him, tee, hee!
      Imagination is a terrible thing to waste!
      Happy Spring Perry Gals!

      • Oh my Gosh, that was just beautiful!!! I will be reading that over and over- you really have a gift. I hope you other ladies enjoy these as much as I do. Did you really just now write that ? Thank You

      • HAHA, Oh Love, I LOVE IT !! Sure hope you are keeping all of these poems in a file. I would hate to see you lose them because they are so good. Wish Steve could read them, for I know he would enjoy them.

        I am SO HAPPY he won. To us, there is no greater voice but we don’t know who else is out there doing the voting.

        We can smile smugly now 🙂

  108. Just emailed Cuts and we will see if she is home or still in CA. I’m sure that she will check in when she gets home.

    At least she better! LOL

    YES! Steve won!!!

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi Debs,

      It seems all our efforts paid off after all… Yesterday morning I got a bit frantic as I looked to see RV’s numbers on the increase as It appeared someone was desperately trying to reverse the numbers for him. Must have been one of the Ap lovin’, SP haters out for revenge against Steve’s fans. It seems on their part it was nothing more than a waste of time. LOL I stayed up until early am punching the poll. I see you ladies were all at it too! I know Steve would be so proud to see how his fans all rushed in to protect his standing…It shows just how much we Looooooooooove our Mr. Steven Ray Perry!!! I do hope we hear from cutlets soon, I enjoy listening to the two of you cutting up! Also hope we hear something new from Steve soon. Maybe he’ll hear about winning the poll and come out for another interview….I just can’t help believing! O well, I have quite a list of to do’s here, so I should get hopping right away. Think I’ll crank up my Perry box, grab a glass of Perry nom and hit the play button… This should make the rest of the day seem like a piece of cake. Enjoy your day Ladies!

      • Hi Lovemso, I’m in the mood for a new Spring Steve poem. What do you have up your sleeve? Please?

  109. Hi Debs, Lisa, Gina Joy, Marylou and blue and anyone else that is here for the same reason!!!! I am still doing my best to stay in the game….It works most of the time bu not always…It’s O.K though, I know Steve will always come out ahead… I hope all of you are having a gorgeous night and having a fantastic time supporting the greatest Legend that ever graced the vocal world! Have fun and by all means keep voting! Lot’s of love Perry gals!!!!

    • Hey yourself!!! 🙂

      Yep, everyone has been on except Cuts…I think she might be in CA haunting the beaches looking for Steve! LOL I will have to email her and find out what is up! 🙂

      God, I’m about ready to have a heart attack if they dont shut down the voting and show Steve as the winner soon! UGH!

      Debs 🙂

    • Yeah!!!!!! Steve is the WINNER, but we knew that along! How late did you girls stay up? I went back through the log, Cuts hasnt been on since March 20. She mentioned she was going to CA May 14th. I hope everything is ok with her.

      • Hi Everyone,

        I have been watching for Cutlets as well, and am getting worried. Maybe they were away for Easter???? Hope she signs on soon.

        I am SO happy Steve Won. He deserved it even if I wasn’t a fan. Yay Steve !!

    • WOOPS! I meant to get at the top

  110. COME ON EVERYONE IF YOU HAVE NOT VOTED YOU NEEDED TO ASAP!

    Debs 🙂

    I have it on 5 Groups on FB to vote NOW! So we will see. Just checked and Steve is still ahead! Damn, nerve wracking! LOL

    Debs 🙂

    • Had to stop for a bite to eat…It is working girls, the numbers are climbing…Keep up the good work!

      • I cant get it to take more then my one vote this morning!! UGH!

        Excellent, I will look at the votes after I have lunch as well!

        Come on everyone VOTE!!!

        Debs 🙂

    • I have been passing the info around also, and have 5 computers here. They all voted, but the reboot won’t let me vote again 😦

    • Still flicking the fingers! Steve will win without a doubt!!!!

  112. Me again. If you have more than 1 computer, try voting on it. I was able to vote again on my notebook, in addition to my pc

  113. Attention Ladies!

    Put on your but kicking fingers and keep voting. Someone is steadily trying to put Van Zant in the lead…We Perry girls won’t stand for that!

    • I already voted. To bad they only let you vote once.

      • Hi ann,

        I know it may sound like a pain but if you restart you computer and go back to the link that seems to work for me. It’s worth the extra effort!

    • Hi Everyone,
      I don’t understand why I am not getting any pictures of Perry and Van zant. I rebooted and still nothing however I will still vote if someone can tell me if Perry is on the top or bottom . Help Please???

      • Hi Marylou!

        Steve has 157 votes and Ronnie has 100. I have been going back to the link posted by Lisa as the one I posted didn’t work. Tell everyone you know to get on there and vote! Those numbers for Ronnie have been rising fast. I have not let up all day, I don’t know how long I can keep it up! Ladies if you restart your computer and go back there again it will allow another vote! At least it is for me…

  114. Attention Ladies!

    Put on your but kicking fingers and keep voting. Someone is steadly trying to pur Van Zant in the lead…We Perry girls won’t stand for that!

  115. Good Morning Perry girls,

    Just checked WROQ and the final is Steve vs Van Zant. I’m very surprised that it’s not Freddie up against him! This should be a runaway for our man! Right now it is 68% for Steve and 23% for Van Zant. Keep on voting ladies!!
    Hope everyone had a nice Easter. I know I don’t check in much but I do enjoy reading everyones posts and knowing that I am not the only lady out there that feels this way about Steve. When I read your posts it’s like reading my own thoughts! I thought maybe there was something wrong with me, lol. It’s nice to know there are a lot of us out there and hopefully Steve will get back out there soon. He looked great in that pic that was on Mark Wills facebook!! Still as sexy as ever!!
    Everyone have a great day…Perry on sisters!!

    • good morning ladies, We are in the finals and our man Steve is in the lead. So go and vote.
      have a great day.

      • WAHOO!!!

        I just voted and we have already 111 votes for Steve! Keep voting and letting everyone know on all of the other sites to vote for Steve in this Final Round!!!

        This is awesome!!

        Debs 🙂

        p.s. Cuts where the hell are you lately??

    • Hi gina!

      LOL Rest assured, there’s nothing wrong with you, we’re all crazy too….Crazy about Steve Perry!!! Yes, didn’t he did look gorgeous in that photo on facebook?
      I lost my breath gasping when I saw it. Thought for a minute I may have to call for Oxygen. Perry minds do think alike so no need to feel like you’re ever alone. We’re all here for the same reason. Anything new on Steve you should find it posted in this thread…Hope you had a lovely Easter as well, and please, if you stumble across anything of interest concerning a new CD, this is a good place to share your excitement! Remember, this is a very Perry friendly crowd. If they aren’t, they don’t seem to last long, after all, there are way too many Perry gals to argue with here.

      Have a great day ladies!

      • I’m not on facebook, is there any way you could post the picture on this site? Yikes I would really like to see it!!!!

      • Hi Love, Hi Everyone,
        I have 5 computers in this house and all 5 of them voted for Steve…………..haha even the little 8 year old’s computer. Then I emailed my daughter and sent her the link. She has 2 computers, so I got her to vote twice.

        Then I got my sister and some people in my cancer group. Oh yes, I saw my Onc today and told him I was shooting hoops on Saturday. He told me I was too old to do that. HAHAHAHA

  116. FINAL ROUND TODAY:
    It’s now Steve Perry 69% vs. Ronnie Van Zant 31%

    • Hi Blue, Hello Ladies!

      I hope everyone had a beautiful Easter weekend…It was great here, the weather was gorgeous. I placed my vote today and I am sure we all know who will win that round. Nothing beats “The Voice!” I’ll be checking in later to see if you’ve heard anything new!

    • Hi again ladies!

      I was placing my vote again when Faithfully began to play on the radio… I faithfully believe it won’t be long before we hear some good news!

  117. Hey All!

    I just missed the interview!

    Did anyone record it and have it somewhere that I can listen to it!!! GRRRRR!!!

    I cant believe I missed it!!! 😦

    Debs

    • Hi Debs and Everyone!

      I missed it too! I was tuned in to one of the stations (from Uncle Joe’s website) but they never mentioned Joe or Journey, so I don’t know what time it was scheduled. I also checked the radio station’s website and nothing mentioned about it!

    • Hi Debs, I dont know if this helps at all, but I goggled Steve Perry interview with Uncle Joe, and found http://www.steveperryonline.net. Maybe this is what you were looking for. Have a great day, its beautiful here in In. today. I’m ready to take my Ipod outside and work. It’s filled with old Journey and Steve of course.

  118. This one is legit, this Sunday Apr 4th Off the Record with Joe Benson will feature the music of Journey as well as more of Joe’s (past) conversations with Steve Perry and the rest of the band.

    For more Info: http://www.unclejoe.com

    • Hello again ladies!

      Here I am again and before I could begin typing “Don’t Stop Believing” began playing on the radio once again… How on earth does this happen??? Good Omen or could someone be spying on me??? LOL Oh well, I’m ready for some fun… First I’m off to vote again. See you all soon!

  119. For NuKnuk, if you can ‘delete’ my post dtd Apr 1 about Steve Perry making a guest appearance, I would really appreciate it. I don’t want people running out buying tickets because CPC LIVE pulled off this cruel prank!

  120. OK Ladies, this is not an April Fools joke. Found this tweet a couple hours ago:

    Steve Perry will be making a special guest appearance with Lincoln Brewster on Friday, April 16th!
    For more info: http://www.cpclive.org
    CPC Live is also on Facebook

    I hope there will be a YouTube video of this. I wonder if he will be singing?

    • Blue…your shitting me!!!

      HOLY CRAPOLA!!!

      Debs 🙂

    • Sorry Bonnie…sorry ladies…but this was just posted about 40 minutes ago….
      CPC Live April Fools Day! Steve Perry will not be at CPC Live on April 16th. Unless of course Steve Perry buys a ticket! But Steve Perry better hurry up tickets are selling! We are sold out of VIP!

  121. Hi everyone,
    It’s Steve against Freddie now and it’s neck and neck. Get voting again. Right now the score is Steve =25 Freddie 20.
    http://www.wroq.com/pages/6510831.php
    Lisa

    • Thanks for the reminder Lisa! It’s now Steve 60% and Freddie 40%.

    • Your kidding!

      I thought it was Nicks vs Steve till the 5th. UGH!

      Oh well just that much closer to winning!!! I will vote now!

      WAHOO!!!!

      Debs 🙂

    • I just knew that would happen, ok voted! C’mon Steve!!

    • Hi Lisa!

      Thanks for moving that link up! Saves a lot of time…I just returned from voting and our baby Steve is still in the lead! I hope you all have a lovely weekend, I’ll be out and about enjoying this weather! I still have a wonderful feeling that we should be hearing more news very soon. As said before, I only hope I am right!
      You girls have a gorgeous weekend and I will be checking in soon… Keep winding the thread ladies, we should have a spool large enough to sew the equator soon!

  122. Hey Ladies!

    Guess who’s here with a new CD and gearing up for a new tour? That’s right! How Perry foolish of me, you all know it’s April fools day, I realize we may all be Foolish Heart’s, and I am sure we’ve all live through this day enough to know a prank when we hear it! If you hear anything exciting today, I’d wait and see what the punch lines going to be…Give it a week and the truth will come out!

    I cast my vote for the day and wow, just this second Lovin’ Touchin’ Squeezin’ came on the radio. I swear, Maybe he is is telling me he’s making that comeback and “it won’t be long Yea.” It is the strangest thing, it happens every time I leave a comment lately! That is no April fools joke! Anyway, I just like the rest of you ladies am getting a lot a good vibes about this! I hope we’re right!!!
    Have a wonderful day and try not to be fooled by anyone!

    • Love,
      Geezz, I think my heart stopped for a second !! Wow what an April fools joke 🙂 I’m ok now that I dried my eyes.

      This would have been a great day to release a cd. Dang it Steve, you’re missing great opportunities.

      Ok I am going to check my blood pressure now…………..

      • Hi Marylou!

        Sorry, I didn’t mean to upset your BP by any means. I guess my SP was a bit outta control, I just couldn’t resist. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten myself all worked up before I finished reading details. I know how you feel!!!
        Honestly, I was just getting in the spirit of the day…I hope your blood pressure is back to normal now, LOL I wouldn’t want to be responsible for the loss of a loving Steve Perry fan! How could I ever face myself with that on my conscience. Anyway, I hope you are laughing about it now!

    • Hi Love, Hi Everyone,
      Please don’t be upset…………..I am ok, just shocked for a few minutes, and then back to reality. Early today I forgot what day it was, but I didn’t have anyone pull any tricks.
      It’s ok, my BP is fine.

      I agree, we don’t want to lose any of our Perry Sisters :). We love them all.

  123. Morning/Afternoon Everyone!!

    Just voted and here is the breakdown so far today:

    Everyone got busy yesterday & this morning!

    Stevie Nicks has 102 votes @ 25%.
    Steve has 312 votes @ 75%.

    WAHOO!!! Keep voting everyone!!! 🙂

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi Debs!
      I tried to follow the link this morning and it said there was an error. I’ll go try it again now! Help yourself to some cake while you’re here! LOL

    • There are now 328 votes and still at 75%. I’ll check in later, have fun ladies!

  124. Hi ladies!
    Anything new today? I hope you are all in the best of spirits and enjoying yourselves wherever you may be…Thought I’d bake a Perrylicious faith cake just in case anyone gets hungry. Grab it fast gals, I’m sure it won’t last… Ingredients include…( Flowers, oil, just in case you need some… Honey Roasted Steve-nuts, Perryberrys, BluePerrys, Sweet Perrys, and Perry-wink-winkles) Might I suggest Perry-A or Dom-Perry-on as a refresher along with a good Steve-Food appetizer. Hope you enjoy it Perry Perry Much!
    I have a strong vibe that says we’ll hear something soon! Guess who just came on the radio as I wrote that last sentence? That’s right! None other than The Voice himself… It happens every time I come to this page. I say it’s a good omen! Anyway, “Don’t Stop Believing” and “Be Good To Yourself” LOL After all, Some one has too!

    He walked with me alone last night
    Along the open shore.
    Near the sea of dreams, where heavenly light,
    Left me breathless and wanting for more

    This angel came from a far away land
    To bring me his message of love.
    Reflections gleaming on smooth wet sand,
    Like mountains of gold from above.

    He whispered to me erasing my fears
    Of waking tomorrow alone.
    With open arms he’ll always be near,
    No matter how far I may go.

    He said I admit love’s a curious thing
    That appears without making a sound.
    Yet foolish heart’s know the comfort love brings
    To a wretch who is finally found.

    Who dares to say fairy tales are not true,
    And some things just aren’t meant to be?
    I’m telling you now it could happen to you,
    If only you’d simply believe!

    • He Love, Hi Everyone,
      Love, I hope you are keeping a book on all these poems. You may one day be able to give them to Steve. That would be SO cool.

      If I had to pick a phrase that has helped me more than any other phrase from one of the songs, it would have to be from Mother/Father, “Have Faith, Believe.” I did and it got me through the hardest part of this illness. I can still say those words. I did believe ……………just the way Steve say those words ran through my mind so many times I could never guess.

      It worked !

      Oh yes, and I am voting every day !!

      • Hey Marylou, I think of you often. It’s getting warm and nice in Indiana. I hope the warmer weather encourages you. Trial By Fire is the song that gets me through the bad days. It does make my heart ache for him though when I listen to it. I want to wrap my arms around him. I dont think my husband would mind. LOL

      • Hi Marylou,

        I am sure he would be so happy to hear your story! Isn’t it amazing how his voice and lyrics reach into a soul and pulling out the most magic of all powers??? I too love that song. After dealing with family loss those words truly touched me as well.
        Interestingly, almost every song I ever heard him do touched me in some way. I am serious when I say it’s almost like having an angel watching over me, guiding my direction. I just heard “Separate Ways” “Worlds Apart” That song says it all. Once you’ve known love, it is there whenever you need…You just have to keep the faith in that love, while never forgetting where it comes from! Life can be very tough and unfair at times, but by all means “Don’t Stop Believing”
        Faith can climb mountains, fall off the top and still land on it’s feet somehow!
        It is amazing how humans all have gifts to share with others who may feel lost and confused. The angels are everywhere I tell ya, and Steve is one of them along with many many others who are simply born to project light. I see a halo every time I look at him.
        I would love to meet and thank him personally, He is an inspiration to sooooo soooo many! I am so glad he was able to reach your soul as well… And I do hope you enjoyed the Perrylicious cake I baked for you ladies. After all, it did contained the most delicious high quality ingredients know to woman! LOL

        Have a beautiful day Marylou, and “Don’t Stop Listening To The Angels”
        After all, they have traveled the main highway enough to guide us through those awful detours.

    • I agree with Marylou about keeping a book. You have a real talent for words, you should be selling this stuff. I too think something is about to pop with Steve. There is to much activity with him all of a sudden. I can feel it in my bones!!!!

      • Hi Joy,

        Concerning what you said about something happening with Steve…I can feel it in my bones too! Tee, he, he…I get butterflies thinking about it! Oh my, I really should get a physical soon, I don’t know if this heart of mine could withstand such excitement! LOL About the book, yes I have a collection of everything I do. I have been a bit busy dealing with other things lately, although, I do plan on getting some of them published sometime in the near future. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the cake too…Have a great day Joy!

  125. VOTING THIS MORNING!!!

    Just voted and they have combined the West and Mid West. So it’s now between Steve Perry & Stevie Nicks.

    So far it’s SP in the lead with 30 votes @ 81% and Stevie Nicks with 7 votes @ 19%.

    Get voting EVERYONE!!!! Got to kick some serious ass now!!!

    Debs 🙂

    • I just voted and Steve is now at 84%. Everybody go and vote.

      • I already voted first thing this morning. The score as of right now is Steve=59 (83%) Stevie=12 (17%).

    • Hi Ladies,

      Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I did put in my vote again this morning. I would never miss another chance to say Steve Perry is the best…I Love Steve! I Love Steve! But then, Don’t We All??? LOL Anyway, I’ll be checking back soon,
      Stay safe and have a wonderful week!

  126. Hello Everyone!

    Have you noticed all the ‘new’ Steve Perry Fan clubs surfacing on Facebook? To me, it’s getting to be way too many because I would prefer just ONE consolidated SP Fan Club where we wouldn’t have to go back and forth to post information, join discussions and all. But I know there’s nothing I can do about that.

    As Lisa mentioned, the OtherMrsPerry Facebook page is the best place on Facebook (also their website) to get up-to-the-minute SP news and photos. These two ladies are always on the ball for us SP fans. And one day, this forum will close for comments.

    And regarding the FB post about a CD coming out in April, I’ve noticed people posting yesterday’s news, mostly news from Wiki that was later removed.

    One last thing for today, I continue to VOTE for STEVE PERRY every day as the Best Singer!

    • What is the exact name on FB for the OtherMrsPerry??? Is that in the Groups??

      I cant remember if I’m on there or not. I am in 4 Groups right now. Some active and some not so much! LOL

      Debs 🙂

    • Hi Everyone, Hi Blue,
      Blue, did you try voting today? For whatever reason it won’t let me vote today, and just gives a read out of the number of votes he has.

      I am a bit confused. I tried saving the link to fav places too and that did not help.

      Debs, I did send you a friend request on Face book. Anyone else that I can friend?

      • Hi Girls..
        Marylou, I hope today finds you feeling well. As far as the voting goes, you have to wait a full 24 hours since your last vote. Just keep refreshing the page throughout the day until it clears itself. It did let me vote this morning. Just keep trying. We have to do this for Steve. He is still kicking major booty! I am curious who he will be matched up with in the next bracket. Inevitably he will be matched up with Freddy at some point. That’s going to be a battle! But, if we all keep our dedication and persistence, I know he can win! We just need to keep recruiting fans to the fight. Have a great day everyone. KEEP VOTING♥♥♥

      • Hi Marylou! I think I found you on Facebook and I’ll send a friend request in the next 24 hrs or so. I prefer to keep my screen name Blue on this site. I hope everything is going well with you. Since you’re near me, are you Pa folks getting this nasty cold, wet, and windy weather?

    • Hi Blue, I’m really showing my ignorance here, but why wouldnt this forum keep on going as long as there is new information. I too would like to just come here for the latest news.

      • Hi Joy! I plan to keep commenting here until it does close. I’ve gone to other current topic forums that were closed for comments, but I have no idea about this one. I was just saying some day it has to close, maybe in 2011 when the heading “New Steve Perry Album 2010” becomes history. I like the fact that we can receive emails whenever someone comments on here. And for the love of this man, we sure are taking up so much cyberspace, pretty soon no one will be able to find the scroll down button!

    • Good morning ladies, I guess there was a rumor going around last week that our Steve had died ( I missed it) There is a link on http://www.steveperryfans.com that sets the story straight. Have a great day everyone.

      • Thanks Joy! Now I would have thought the source (his lawyer) would come from Steve’s official site “Fan Asylum”, not ABC news radio. I do think this rumor started by all the tweeting about a different Steve Perry who is critically ill, not from the SS interview.

  127. Hey,

    Got this off a reply from one of the Groups on FB.

    Do any of you know about this texting thing she mentions. Here is what she wrote:

    “KGB is that texting service where you ask a question to 542542 I asked them Do you know if Steve Perry is planning on releasing a new album? They replied –Perry had a Sony ‘One time’ album definitely coming out in 2010-with music videos and a possible tour to be determined. kgb_team– maybe you guys should text that ? to 542542 and see if you get a similar answer :D”

    I’ve never heard of it before myself.

    Debs 🙂

  128. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO VOTE FOR OUR MOST BELOVED AND FAVORITE SINGER EVERYDAY!

    Debs 🙂

  130. Lisa,

    Debs 🙂

    • checking now BRB.

    • Nope. Wasn’t you. Her name is Pat.

    • Hi Everyone:

      I didn’t realize we could vote every day. I’m going to make sure I do that. Steve is still 81%. I love that new picture and put it on my facebook too. One of my friends said DID YOU TAKE THAT PICTURE?? I said I CAN ONLY WISH. I printed one, probably will frame it.

      Still freezing in PA. Come on Spring. My garden is waiting for me, and I am sitting here with blankets on me. Soon Perry Sisters………..soon we shall hear. (I hope).

      • Marylou,

        Send me an invite and a note so that I dont ignore you! LOL

        Debs 🙂

  131. Blue,

    I hooked up with Mark’s FB page and left a post on there! I just couldnt help it!

    Mark Wills is a very good artists. Like him a lot!

    And of course couldnt pass up asking about new material and maybe collaboration with him and Steve! LOL Just had to ask…dont ask dont get! LOL

    Blue…did you put that on the 4 FB Groups yet?? If not let me know and I will do it!!! They will all flip when they see it! 🙂

    Debs 🙂

    • Debs, no I didn’t put it on any FB pages, but it is on TheOtherMrsPerry FB page where I saw it first. So go ahead and show to all of Steve’s millions of fans!

      • Cool!

        I will do that now! Thanks!! 🙂

        Debs 🙂

      • you can just become a friend of the other mrs perry on facebook and tag the photo and you will have access on your facebook page. Debs…was that you that I just confirmed as friend? please let me know so I can keep track of who’s who. Thanks.

    • OK I have been encouraging you girls to join my Steve Perry Yahoo groups for some time now. The pic was first posted by Valery (one of 2 ladies who are from that group who made a website called http://www.theothermrsperry.com . Val posted that today.The pic was sent to her by another lady (Jenny). The pic was taken yesterday at the Atlanta airport. You can also join the other mrs perry on facebook. I don’t think she discriminates who joins as they would like as many followers as they can get, so don’t worry that you are not known by her. if you like you can also find me on facebook under Lisa White from california(my profile pic is of me and one of my sons-I am in sunglasses and a black ball cap). They are the nicest ladies you could meet. I also have other Perry fanatics as friends on my facebook and we enjoy trading perrygasms[sexy pics of our man] and my favorite perry songs with eachother everyday-not to mention comments traded back and forth. It’s very fun) Blue has become a friend of mine on facebook. Come join the fun ladies. We are a sisterhood and a very loving group.♥♥♥

      • Hi Lisa,

        Thanks for the info! I am so thrilled to see all of the latest, although I must tell you, I have been E-Stalked while trying to follow the news on Steve. Now days though, I just sit and wait to hear the buzz from the rest of you ladies as I don’t think my heart could take any more of the trauma that I was subjected to as a result of being too trusting with personal info. If you only knew the story behind that… I must say, I hope none of you are ever faced with that madness. It was a total nightmare!

        I have always been a very trusting and loving individual, but after that episode of torment I choose to opt out of memberships. Very sad and frustrating! So Please continue posting any new info as this is the only place I visit anymore to see whats new with Steve. Again, Thanks to all of you for the links and info you have been putting out there…Please understand, It is not you I don’t trust, just the websites themselves! While they may be perfectly safe, after my experience, I cannot risk that again. I do hope you understand…
        Anyway, I hope you all have a beautiful weekend!

    • Debs… So did I. I had no idea he was the one who sang one of the country songs I love…19 something. Wow ..small world. Isn’t it amazing how one thing leads to another? Oh heck…now I sound like a FIXX song. LOL

    • Debs,
      Do you mind if I send you a Facebook request?

  132. I know some have seen this already, but it’s the latest photo of Steve Perry with musician Mark Wills at the Atlanta Airport. Mark tweeted this today and he’s getting so many thanks from Steve fans. Looks to me, ladies, that Steve is ready to go on stage again! And he’s still so dog gone good looking!!!

    • Holy Crap Blue!!

      Mark Wills is a super good singer of Country as well. And for him to be in the same place as Steve Perry…hmmm…is Steve up to now?? I know that Randy Goodrum has written and writes loads of songs for the Country Singers and of course with Steve as well.

      I’m going to have to find Mark on FB and thank him for posting that picture of Steve!

      Thanks Blue!!

      Debs 🙂

      • Debs, the link to the photo is Mark Wills facebook page, so you won’t need to go lookin’..

    • OMG! Does anyone know when that photo was taken? I can not believe he was so close…Only a few hours away and I missed it? Da-Double-m-n! God, he does look great!!! He looks as good as ever! Thanks for the thrill Blue, You just made my weekend!

      • On Mark Wills FB Page said the piccie was taken yesterday.

        Sure is popping up all over the place lately hasnt he! 🙂

        Debs 🙂

  133. Dont know if you all know but Randy Goodrum is on Facebook and there is a great interview he has on there about writing and recording songs with Steve for the Street Talk Album. I am on there now and will be digging through his info and he does reply personally on there as well.

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Randy-Goodrum/127093939616?v=info

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi Debs,

      I enjoyed reading the interview, Thanks! This may sound Perry strange but, I have been noticing, every time I visit this sight with the radio tuned in, a Steve Perry song begins to play. As I read the Goodrum interview “Don’t Stop Believing” came on… I can’t stop believing its a good omen of some sort. I can walk in a grocery store at any given time and hear one of his tunes playing in the background. It’s almost like he’s with me everywhere I go. Gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling! Anyway, I thought I would check in to see the latest….Sure hope we hear more from him soon… In the meantime ladies, I hope all of you have a Perry fun and Stevetacular weekend!

    • Debs,
      Wooo Hooo, I copied the picture, and even printed it out. Cool. Thanks so much, I am so excited.

      • No problem!! 🙂 it was Blue that found it! LOL

        Love seeing the new/latest piccie of our Man!!! 🙂

        And Mark Wills is awesome too! 🙂

        Debs 🙂

  134. Ok Ladies,

    Have you all been to steveperry.com lately??

    It was brought to my attention that is says,
    “This site under construction and Coming Soon”
    “This site is currently under construction”
    “Please check back at a later time”.
    And that last sentence is in 11 different languages.

    NOW THE BIG QUESTION IS…HOW LONG HAS THAT BEEN SAYING THAT ON THERE??

    I do not remember seeing that when I saw that about 4 months ago…any of you remember seeing that??

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi Debs,
      Yes it has been there for a long time. Everytime I check it, it says the same thing, unfortunately. How’s everyone doing? Be sure to vote here for our man to win. You can vote once daily. I believe this site is in the east coast so if you are on the west coast and you vote @9p or later you will have to wait until 9p or later the next day to vote again. He has been kicking some major ass. As he should. Love to all.
      http://www.wroq.com/pages/6510831.php

      • Well Hell Lisa!!!

        I didnt see that last time I looked…DAMN!! UGH!

        Could you see his site working and would be slammed and down because we all crashed it in the first hour! 🙂

        I know I would be on that sucker in a heart beat!!!

        Debs 🙂

      • Hi Ladies!

        Thanks for the link Lisa, Steve is leading the votes with 82% so far. I hope you’re all well and having a Perry beautiful week! I’ve been listening to some of Steve’s songs on you tube…I love the one called Can’t Stop! 😀 Wow, I couldn’t stop dreaming as I listened. That is one Hot song!!! Oh yea, not to mention I would never dream of stopping Steve Perry…I like it!

        Copy That and paste it in your Perry Loving Browsers!

  135. Hi Marylou, Im going the 14th of may and believeme hubbys taking extra money just in case1lol I remember reading where perry said he use to take his mom for her cancer treatments and people thought it was for him on his throat. Its like the game telephone by the time it gets to you its completely worded different. What you said put those people straight but some still chose to believe the lies! Yesterday after a full week I finished my spring cleaning now its time to start the front yard! Then before you know it falls here and Christmas! Well girl you have a great day and if you need any help slapping that idiot just call me!!!

  136. Check this out!

    Dont know if this is really Randy Jackson but here is what he posted on RS.

    American Idol -RandyJackson | 3/19/2010, 1:22 pm EST

    Played the bass in Journey on
    the raised on radio cd and tour .
    Oh by the way he is Black.
    Why would a racist have a
    Black man in his band
    I’ll tell you why Because Steve Perry is not a racist But Sarah Silverman
    is an Idiot and not Funny 😦

    Only Jayz can use the n-word

    Steve Perry is an amazing
    Singer .

    and Sarah Silverman is a
    lousy comedian because
    she’s not funny

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi Deb, and ladies, Just popping on to say howdy to everybody, and wondering if there were any new news about that bitch and perry! Well Im off to cook[burn]hubbys dinner! Hi mary hope your feeling great today and i cant believe I really just burnt the potatos!!!GOTTA GO!!!

      • Hey Girl…

        So your killing your hubby’s dinner! Nice One! LOL Steven is home and he cooks! LOL Thank God! I get tired of cooking just for me when he is working away! UGH!

        Nope I have not heard more on it but I’m on 4 Groups on Facebook and it’s buzzing with the RS Mags interview!

        Hope you all are good!

        Debs 🙂

  137. No one can replace Steve Perry of Journey.. why try. I have heard Journeys new front man he is just a robot singing like Steve don’t like it won’t buy new music….

  138. I will have to listen to Nicky and see who gets voted!!!

    MOST CLASSIC CLASSIC ROCK SONG
    Saturday 20 March 6pm
    (Repeat Thurs 25 March 11pm)

    On Saturday Darren Redick will be running through the list of Classic Classic Rock Songs, as voted for by you.

    Tune in to hear which song Planet Rock listeners have voted the definitive classic rock song, and then as soon as the show’s over head to the Vault online to find out which songs made the Top 40.

    http://www.planetrock.com/vault

  139. I would love to see a script of exactly what SP told Rolling Stones Magazine. Is it out there in cyberspace yet??

    Maybe Steve will hear about it. That is pretty damn serious to be accusing someone of racist comments!

    What a freaking cow bag she is!!!!!!

    Debs

    • Hi Debs,
      I would like to see some sort of script as well. I seriously doubt Steve would go into such detail. I want to hear it from HIM. I don’t believe this crap whatsoever.

      I can’t remember the last time I was this pissed! Shock humor??? WHAT?? That bitch should be thrown off the stage, and barred from performing anywhere except a Nevada whorehouse.

      • Hi Marylou, I’m new to this site, I’m enjoying the comments between you girls. I’ve been waiting since last night to hear your report. I’m so glad you got a clean bill of health!! My great husband took me to Del Mar this past Jan to look for SP. We stayed on the beach, but didnt see him! It was a great disappointment, I thot he would come into the local coffee shop at least once the week we were there. But it made for good fun for my ever loving husband and myself. Perry on girls!!

      • Marylou, I just read what you said and girl I was so happy to hear you tell these losers about the TBF tour. I was going to tell them and also about the bullshit VH1 CRAP RIPPING PERRY APART! You said it well girl and Im so pleased that you did! I feel like you, and this pisses me off to no end! Im very glad to hear your report from your test came back good girlfriend. Just one thing though if I were a hooker in a Nevada Whorehouse I wouldnt want the bitch performing there either!!! Hi Joy, Im going to CA in May and will be trying just like you did to get a glimps or date with perry! Wish me luck gals!!!lol

    • Hi ladies,

      That’s is just another someone trying to gain attention by lashing out at Steve…She’s probably jealous she can’t have Steve for herself. That or as I said just seeking attention that otherwise she had not the talent to gain! Now that’s pathetic! People who know Steve, including Randy Jackson would know better than that!!!

      • Hi Love, Hi Everyone,

        Can’t help it, maybe I’m just a badass but she is a skank!! I cannot believe how angry I still am over it, and it is not my personality to be like that.

        ANYWAY…………..back from the hospital with the report and the scan say NED again (no evidence of disease). In other words, if there is any cancer there, it is so small the scan cannot pick it up. SO PerryGals, we Party ON…….
        Oh yes, I still have to see my doctor this afternoon, but hey, I learned to read these fairly well. This one is a no brainer 🙂
        Thank all of you for your support. Love to all

      • Hi Marylou and my fellow perry sisters,
        I am so happy to hear your scan came back NED!!! You are very strong, indeed. clapping for you-CONGRATULATIONS!
        Please don’t go getting too stressed over that bitch’s lies. This is going to kill her career quite a bit. She picked on the wrong guy. Let karma just take it’s course, and it will! You can see by all of the comments made after the article that 99% of them are lashing out at her, mine included. Nobody believes that a man as nice and caring and careful as Steve is would not say such an awful thing. What I can’t believe is that she would have the gall to say what she said about his “SUPPOSED” remark when she’s the one actually using the word and telling the kinds of jokes she tells. Even if Steve did say that (which we all KNOW he DIDN’T) what a friggin’ hypocrite she is. I can’t stand her. But I know this will work itself out. I am just waiting for it to play out and see what comes of this. Steve knows his fans are behind him and I’m sure that’s all that really matters to him. Not what anyone else has to say. Have a great day and enjoy your success. You deserve it. Go do something special for yourself. Love and hugs.

    • Hi Everyone,
      Thank you for all your good wishes. I am very happy that I seem to be in remission, (they never really say that) and hope I can stay that way. After all, I do take care of a little grandson since his mother is also a s____k and his father works so many hours to take care of him.

      I could not help myself with this Sarah Silverman situation and just HAD to post again. I hope RS gets 1000s of posts, but I don’t think they will.

      More than anything else, I wish Steve would read the posts so he would know how much he is loved and respected.

      Hope everyone has a Perry beautiful weekend. The sun will be shining 🙂

      • Hi Cutlets, Hi Everyone, Welcome Joy:

        Thanks for all the good wishes. Wow, the sun is shining and I am doing my best to get some needed spring housecleaning done. I have to pace myself a little better and not get too over tired, but I am making progress.

        Cutlets, I Had to say something about the TBF tour since there was so much crap about “perry having trouble with his throat” did you see that one? That was such an assumption when Steve was taking his mom to clinics. It’s easy to see Steve at a Medical Center and assume that he has cancer. So, he’s not singing, it must be throat cancer. Dipshits !!

        I will probably go back and re read some of the posts, and probably get pissed and write again. I will be looking for somebody stating a bunch of crap and smack them between the eyes. I just CAN’T believe that Skank would ever say something like that about our Steve, or for that matter, anyone else given the crap she does.

        Ok, well this is almost the end of March, so Cutlets, when in May are you leaving for CA? Let’s see how much time we have to save some bail money 🙂

    • Hi Deb, When you told me that and I read it I was so upset. its a horrible thing to say about this wonderful man. Like you said what a thing to accuse him of while hes trying to make a comeback! That bitch! the best thing she ever did for Jimmy Kimmel was break up with him! He has no clue how lucky that day was for him. She reminds me of a male Howard Stern BORING AND UNFUNNY! i DID BACK IN THE 90’S LIKE sTERN BUT AFTER i HEARD HOW HE HATED pERRY i HATED HIM! Deb, I know perry and Jackson are good friends so I believe Jackson would have stuck up for his friend. Its a sad day when a freakish bitch trys to ruin a wonderful,humble,caring mans rep! !! May she burn in hell!!!

  140. Yes I read that. Someone already sent the link to me and I was furious!

    I posted on there as Just1More like I do here! And I think I even added my name…I could choke that woman!

    Debs 🙂

  141. Hey girls,
    Hope everyone had a nice St. Patty’s day. Did you happen to read the Rolling Stone article regarding Sarah Silverman and our man? I don’t like her. Here it is if you haven’t read it yet.
    http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2010/03/18/ex-journey-singer-steve-perry-denies-sarah-silvermans-claims-about-racial-slur/

    • I can’t STAND her…a few weeks ago she made an appearance at a conference and her routine was about “retards” b/c of the comments made by Sarah Palin…she said she would never adopt a “retard” unless they ahd a terminal illness so she could be “rid” of them when they were 18 like regular kids!! I have a special needs son so it made my stomach turn. Will never support her again…Kind of hypocritical of her don’t ya think…

    • Oh Lisa, I am SO glad you posted that. I just got back from ripping all of them a new asshole, but did it politely. Not sure why.

      I think that RS is also making up some of Steve’s response as well. I don’t think Steve would have said all of that. I am SO PISSED.

  142. Hi mary, LMAO, Im so glad I can count on my perry sisters incase I need to get bailed out, because hubby along with Perry will probably let me rot there after perry files charges. Please let us know what the doctor says? If anybodys interested Journeys on Oprah today but its a repeat. I missed it the first time and I will miss it this time. I would love to hear Oprah read the message from perry though!!! Ah screw the fake journey they suck!!!

  143. Lisa,

    Broom works! LOL

    And anything else you can find!!!

    Debs 🙂

  144. Hey!

    Is there any video of Steve playing the guitar/bass on YouTube?? I would love to see him playing and singing! I’ve only seen him take the keyboards once or twice in videos.

    Debs 🙂

    • Debs,
      No I have only seen pictures. I will try to do some research to find out what songs he did play bass on. But, I do know a video where he plays a mean broom. LOL

  145. HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!!!
    In honor of my Irish heritage and St. Patty’s Day I give you our man W/ Clannad. Erin Go Braless!!!
    Love to all…Cheers!

    • Hi Lisa,
      I love this song and listening to Steve in the background, especially during the chorus and at the end, the three tribesman, Bhi’ls acu Ar a t sean doigh Eist leo

      And Steve also in the background Oh oh oh oh oh oh…. It’s beautiful.

      A controversial song since it’s aimed at the white people who came to this country and desecrated the Indians.

      She sings in Cherokee too. Love it Love it Love it.
      Thanks.

  146. Marylou, Ladies, people are asking to see Steve Perry on TV! I see it all the time, they’re asking Randy Jackson, Ryan Seacrest. I’ve read on the Am Idol site that he’s been asked to appear on the show a couple of times, but he’s not interested. I’m hoping he will appear on Glee since he won’t be asked to judge anyone.

    I’m having my SP morning, I really like this new YouTube video flashing photos and video of him. If you want to see, just type in the search box ‘steve perry “always something there to remind me” ‘ (not his song, but his pics)

    On a sad note, there is another famous SP who is very ill and I’ve checked it out and it’s not our SP, so I wanted you to know this so no one panics if you see something on the internet!

    • Hi Blue,

      It is kind of you to clear up any confusion such as that. I remember a few years ago reading somewhere that a Steve Perry had suffered a stroke and as a result almost had one myself! I cried and worried for days until I finally found out who they were taking about. As I am sure it is very sad for fans of the other Mr. Perry. My heart goes out to them all…

      • Lovemso, I’ve been meaning to ask you, have you published any of your poems? If you do it just for enjoyment, there’s a poetry contest advertised in my crosswords magazine. There’s no website, just a NYC address to mail your poem to and possibly win losts of money! Also, I’ll definitely remind everyone when the Glee episode will be on. I’m also wondering if Am Idol will have the contestants sing SP songs this season…

    • Hi Blue, Hi Everyone:

      I did not know that Steve had been asked to be a judge on AM Idol, but with his personality, I can understand why he declined. He is far too sensitive a person to tell someone they did not do well. He would far rather tell himself that.

      Now one thing I would love to see on AM. Idol would be for him to tutor the contestants one week. Problem is, would they be doing Journey songs? If so, I doubt Steve would accept. If the contestants were choosing their own song and he were there to help them, I think he would do it.

      I am sad to hear that there is another famous SP who is very ill. I don’t know who it is, but I will remember him in my prayers.

      Tomorrow is SCAN day, I’m ready to face anything cause I have Steve on MY Side 🙂

      Thanks for the info. Blue

      • Marylou, yes I was thinking the same thing, I’d like to see Steve tutor the contestants. At least that part would be pre-recorded and he wouldn’t have to appear live except to sit in the audience and watch! And this may have been what Amer Idol wanted him to do on the show.

        Much luck tomorrow on your scan…

    • But if he doesnt for American Idol he just might for the new show that Simon Cowell has coming up called Pop Idol. That is when a singer will mentor for a week to the contestants. Now that I would love for SP to do. He is great! He could teach them a great deal! And would be awesome to see him doing that. I love Pop Idol it was started in the UK by Simon. And since Randy Jackson is hanging out with Simon they might be able to get SP to do something like that! I think I would be watching that like a hawk!!! 🙂

      Debs 🙂

  147. According to the Glee fan club site, the season finale will be June 8. I started watching Glee only because of the rumors that SP will appear on one of the episodes.

    Here’s an excerpt from the following link: …”We’re hoping for (SP) to make some sort of promotional appearances or do something with the show just because he’s been so great, and we all love him”.

    http://www.gleefan.com Type SP in the search box

    • Hi Blue, Hi Everyone,
      Wow, I have that date circled on my calendar. You can bet I will be watching that finale no matter what. Thanks so much for finding out when that finale was to be aired.

      It seems that Steve is slowly dipping his toes into the water to see how his fans will react. Problem is, we should be writing to someone about how much we want to see him again, and I have no idea where to write. If anyone has any ideas, Please share them?

      Thanks again.

      • You might start with Lora & Cyndy at Fan asylum. Don’t know if that will help or not. PERRY ON ladies!!

  148. Got this off the melodic rock site just now, SP mentioned visiting the set of Glee and a tribute to Journey later in the season:

    http://www.tvguidemagazine.com/news/paleyfest-sings-glees-praises-4376.html

    • Nice one Blue!!

      I hope that we all let everyone know when that Journey/SP tribute comes off!! That will be cool…I dont watch Glee at all. So that should be an experience! LOL

      Debs 🙂

    • Hi Blue, Hi Everyone,
      Wow a Season Finale of Glee to be a Steve Perry Tribute.
      Now, next job is to find out when the season finale is. God to see that !!

  149. Hi Ladies,

    Mick says “You can’t always get what you want.”..So by all means get what you need!
    They say too much of anything is not good for you, I just can’t seem to get enough of Steve Perry’s Voice, imagine that! Hope you get a good laugh. We all know laughter is the best of medicines, next to Steve Perry’s voice…

    Stumbled out of bed last night to fix a midnight snack
    I had to stop and ask myself just where I hid that stash
    The chocolate bars and tater chips that I had bought on sale
    If I don’t eat them very soon they’ll probably get stale

    I checked the cabinets, then the fridge, under the mattress too
    I checked the drawer beside my bed, I searched in every room
    To my dismay I found myself driving fifty miles
    To the closest Walrus-mart because they never close

    While on the way I reached over and popped a CD in
    And listened to Steve Perry singing “Foolish Heart” and then
    He sang “You’d Better Wait” then “Strung Out” and “Missing You”
    He sang “Somewhere There’s Hope” and even “Strange Medicine” too

    I though of all the things he said about our “Summer Of Love”
    As I pulled into the parking lot of that 24 hour store
    Suddenly I realized what he’d been telling me
    Forget about that junk food just take a ride with me

    So in that very instant I turned turn that car around
    And headed to California where Steve Perry could be found
    I drove all day and then all night and didn’t stop to eat
    By sunrise I was standing out in front of his retreat

    I hit the button on the gate alerting bodyguards
    That I was someone special standing there in his front yard
    To my surprise I found myself waiting on a bench
    To hear the judges verdict of my first stalking offense

    I begged for their forgiveness and they warned me on my way
    Don’t try this again woman or you will surely pay
    On the way back home listening to his voice so sweet
    I pulled into the Walrus-mart and bought those stupid treats

    Comfort food, Gotta love it!

    • HAHAHA, OMG I LOVE IT !! I wish you had a way to mail that to Steve. I just know he would get a good laugh out of it. He says a good sense of humor is very important in a woman.

      I have to admit, I read it twice and laughed till I cried. You are GOOD girl !!
      Thank you

      • Thanks Marylou!

        It makes me feel good to know you had a good laugh. Humor helps me get through some of the more awkward moments. I actually got a good laugh as I was writing that one…Can’t you just picture some Perry crazed fan doing that for real? Kinda scary huh? This is a crazy world! In order to make sense of it all I just look for the humor to ease my own insanity…And trust me it isn’t always as easy as that! I do continue working on it though…At least I got a smile out of you, that’s a great feeling!

        Oh me, oh my, I do hope to see that episode of glee , just keep me posted on that one. I wouldn’t dare miss it if there is any chance our Steve my appear. Hope you all have a Perry Gorgeous day!
        In the meantime I will be fighting of the urge to run out for midnight snacks from any place called Walrus-mart… After all, wouldn’t want to wind up becoming one…A Walrus that is! LOL Midnight snack? Now that would depend entirely on who was planning on indulging!
        O.k. I must behave now, I feel myself getting a bit on the brink of insanity again.
        Have a good day ladies and by all means, Perry On!

    • Really enjoyed that Lovemso. That was great!! I’m sure that has really happened before!!!

    • LOL,Im telling you love you should write a steve perry poem book it would sell like hotcakes! I think this ones my favorite poem that you wrote, and the fact that it has to do with my two favorite things! [stalking and food] It was perfect!LOL Marylou, did you get results or did you go for the test yesterday? Your a positive and loving person you will be fine girl, and the results will be good. I remember perry saying that he never ever watched American Idol so I would be shocked if he were to appear on it for any reason, and I dont watch Glee but I would if Perry were to come on it.I hope you had a great Trip In CA. Lisa Ill be goning in May and part of loves poem just may come true for me! Handcuffs and jail.lol!!! Thanks for that info Blue and Deb your just a nut!!!

      • Hi Cutlets, Hi Everyone,
        Isn’t that poem the best? So help me I laughed till I cried. I just wish Steve could read it.

        I had my scan this morning, and I need to go back to the hospital tomorrow and pick up the CD and the report. I will see one doctor tomorrow afternoon, so I will report in. I hope it’s as good as the last one.

        Well Cutlets, if you are going to CA. in May, I think ALL OF US need to start tucking away a little bail money 🙂 just in case. Think so ?? We can’t leave a Perry Girl in the clinker !!

  150. Oooops! I forgot to put my screen name on that…. I’m sure most of you would recognize those goofy ideas anyway.

    • Hi Love 🙂
      I knew it was you. You are the Poet Laureate of the Steve Perry Gals. Nice to put those wonderful thoughts into the poem.

      Wouldn’t this world be so much better if there was more love in it? I agree it would be nice to spread the Perry Voice around the world. It might just break the heart of Osama Bin Ladin and Al Queda and the United Arab Emirates who control most of our oil, and bring peace to Israel and Jordan.

      Wishful thinking like John Lennon’s song, “Imagine.” What a beautiful song and idea that was.

      The snow is gone and the rain has moved in. The ground is so saturated that huge trees are coming out of the ground roots and all. Yesterday, we were without power for most of the day, but we are fine now.

      I have not felt well today, probably scanxiety for Thursday. I cannot bring Steve in with that scan. It would be great if I could. Am still praying that he gets moving with the CD.

      • Hi Marylou!

        I agree with you there what the world needs now is Love sweet Love, it’s the only the that there’s just too little of as Jakie Deshannon so beautifully put it. Ah, money, there’s plenty of that, just way too much floating in the wrong direction if ya know what I mean. Amazing, how much some people love to take without ever giving back. But we must remember, what goes around most certainly comes back tenfold…We should pity those people for their day will arrive as well… Anyway, I do hope your scan comes out A-O.K. on Thursday. Just take some headphones and listen to Steve while your in the waiting room. That should ward of any undesirable thoughts and feelings. Just picture his face and that will keep you smiling!

  151. Another day unfolding, now the sun is shining through
    The birds are singing in harmony as I write this down for you.
    I hope your day is filled with love and happiness within
    By taking time to listen to Steve Perry once again

    His voice will carry you away, where love is always there
    And hope replaces heartache with the magic that he shares
    So close your eyes and listen as his soul is touching yours
    But please don’t have a breakdown as he leaves you wanting more

    Steve Perry is so brilliant, like moon in a midnight sky
    His face could make a wicked witch throw down her wand and cry
    OMG just picture this, if we could find some way
    To have the whole world listening to Steve Perry everyday…

    In all the cars and all the bars and elevators to
    in all the halls of all the malls and even in the schools
    Can you just imagine how loving we’d all be
    If all the world were brainwashed by the love of Steve Perry?

    Maybe that would not be a good thing after all, just more competition, am I right ladies?

    Anyway, just came to see if there was anything new. I do hope you all have a Perry, Perry good day and keep your grapes peeled as we wait for Steve. I do hope he likes grapes…LOL

  152. Just got this from Planet Rock…did you all see this?

    I know I have the album and not really interested in what NS has to say. I’m sure he will trash SP…nothing new there!

    WIN A SIGNED JOURNEY CD

    On Saturday at 6pm we have a brand new and exclusive feature, NEAL SCHON – JOURNEYMAN, in which Rob Birnie talks to the Journey guitarist about his fantastic career and about the history of the band.

    In celebration of this show we have a competition online to win a copy of Journey’s Greatest Hits signed by Neal.

    Debs 🙂

    • OOPS! That interview is on Planet Rock!!

      Debs 🙂

    • Hey Deb, I rather have a signed copy by Satan before the back-stabber! I wish Perry were signing copies then I would enter but thanks for the info! I just feel like you that he probably wont have a nice thing to say about perry, and I dont want to hear it!!!

    • Hi deb, I wonder why they didnt do that when they interviewd perry afterall he was the one with cain that really wrote all the songs! Strange. Whoever listens to it please post what he said because I dont have the heart to listen for myself!!! Thanks!!! Oh Blue, I understand but thanks anyway!!!

    • Hi Debs, Hi Everyone:

      Hmmm, I just might listen to the interview just to see what he has to say about Steve. If he does trash Steve, I will write them a nasty email.

      I’m putting a note up so maybe I won’t forget. If I am right, that interview should start at 12 Noon EST.

      Wishing Stevie would get going with the CD. I don’t care what it has on it.

  153. Hey Ladies! If you want to know the whereabouts of our guy SP, you should really get a Twitter account so you can do SP searches. I’m sure SP hates Twitter by now because people often tweet in that they’ve seen him, or are sitting next to his table at breakfast, and on and on. Today’s tweet has me wondering, why would he have been at that place so early in the morning. Maybe he’s involved in making a music video. And he wasn’t at a studio. Another guy tweeted a google satellite photo showing the building and street of where SP was seen. And there’s been more. I don’t just use Twitter to track the man, but get good info on other things I like to do.

    Also, Marylou, on the SP Wiki photo I mentioned, you have to enlarge it to see the missing tooth (it’s just a photo messup of course)

    So ladies, if you want to get your daily SP fix, check out Twitter!! It’s free and so easy to sign up.

    Also, if any of you think you know me on Facebook, please come poke me or send me a Friend Request.

    • Hi Blue thanks for the info but just e
      mailing along with coming on here is enough for me. Oh yes and my perry you-tube videos. Thanks to all of you I find out alot of info!!!

    • Hi Blue, So what did you read without mentioning the T word!!!

      • Well now I’ve been thinking that I wish I didn’t mention it at all because I do respect SP’s privacy. But these days no celebrity has any privacy because of T. So I really don’t want to say in this forum what people are saying about SP. You would have to go peek yourself and make your own assumptions. I have found good info there such as links to the recent UK interviews and also Fan Asylum is there and they’ve started to send messages about the stars on their site.

  154. Howdy Ladies, Like Deb said perry would never ever go on facebook so this dude is a phony, and should be shot! Dont worry what you said Blue Im sure the imposter deserved every word you said to him or her. Im glad to hear your feeling great marylou you always type like you are in the best,happy, moods. Your perry sisters are always here for you whenever your feeling down or need to talk about anything your going through. You have my prayers too girlfriend!!! Well girls Neal said hes releasing their new album in April and touring in 2011, and I dont remember where I seen it but i did. Perry better move his cute ass and release something soon. I dont want to hear anything new from these fake journey freaks they leave me with a bad taste in my mouth!!!

    • LMAO, Cuts…we can always count on you for the salty lowdown. Hee hee. You are so colorful, you remind me of myself. Raised by a 2 term Vietnam War sailor and being Irish, German and American Indian with many Italians incorporated in the older generations that helped raise me, I am very familiar with passion, angst and fervor. I just love you. Keep it up girl. Just be sure to use it sparingly, otherwise we’ll just get TOO used to it and won’t know when to take you seriously. LOL 😉 Have a great night ladies.

      • Howdy Lisa, The strange thing is everything I do say I am serious about! My dad was in Vietnam, and also in the Navy for 22 years so I live up to the title as being called a Navy Brat. My dad being Bulgarian ,Irish, and French, while my mother is 100% italian taught me too cook but not very well. It also showed me how much I love to drink while painting, I guess I get that from the Irish and french side! and never taking crap from anybody! With all that being said my ex hubby was German and Native American and I divorced his ass quick infact not soon enough. I guess with him no infact with him I always felt angst and a bit fervor. Italians and Germans I feel sometimes just clash too much, with the passion of the Italian and the control freak of the German it didnt make a nice couple!Now on the lighter side thanks for the compliment friend and hopefully we will hear some great news on perry! TTYL guys!!!

    • Hi Cutlets, Hi Everyone,
      Thanks everyone, You girls are great support. I have one good piece of news. My MRI was ok. believe me, that’s a big plus.

      Last night I was thinking about something Steve said during the interview with Gary in Scotland. They were talking about his range because he could sing so high. Steve said back in those days, he was one step below a Castrati. I had no idea what that was until I googled it and then was shocked. I never cease to be amazed at some of the things our ancesters did. Want to read it?

      http://www.usrf.org/news/010308-castrati.html

      • Howdy Mary, Great,Great, Great, news. my friend! That is so good to hear. Thanks for that info also I did not know that, and those poor boys! Well Im glad I was born a girl with a horrible voice because I would pity the fool who would try and castrati my penis! Back then they just did really strange things for stupid reasons, and that tells me how sick their parents were to allow this too. Have a great day lady!!!

      • Marylou, that is the best news, so happy to hear you’re on your way back to good health. Keep on chatting with your on-line friends so we can keep you stress free!

        And on another matter, I had told myself not to talk about twitter anymore here. So I’ll just let you all know what I read without mentioning the T word.

        Lisa, if you haven’t left for San Diego yet, have a great time!

  155. Marylou, I also wish the best for you and that your next test results will be good news…I haven’t had cancer but know how nasty a disease it is. I recently hand-crocheted many chemo caps for an organization that collects them from crafters all over the country. Then they send them back out to oncology centers throughtout the U.S. that request them. Did you happen to receive a hand-made chemo cap?

    I also wanted to mention that someone keeps putting the Steve Perry photo of him lying down on a boat on his Wiki page. There are so many handsome photos of him out there, yet someone is putting this one up that looks like he has a front tooth missing! Have you all seen it?

    • Blue, Thank you so much. I appreciate all of the support.

      It is a great thing you are contributing to. Unless you go through chemo and lose your hair, you don’t realize how much heat you lose through your head.

      I can tell you the day I started chemo, March 1st. It takes about 2 weeks for your hair to start to come out. As soon as it started, I got my hubby to buzz it off.

      Believe me, it was a hard thing to do since I have always had long hair and it was almost as long as Steve’s in the “When you love a woman” video. 🙂 Same color too.

      I did buy some sleep caps and some hats to wear out. There is a website called headcovers.com and it was great, got them delivered to my door.

      My Oncologist’s Chemo lab did not have any hand crocheted caps. Once in a while people would donate a wig or two, but that is all I had seen there.

      Do you know when you lose your hair to Chemo it comes back curly??? 🙂
      Oh GEEZZ now who would somebody put up a photo with a front tooth missing? Hmmm, maybe Neal? I will have to look for it.

  156. Ok Everyone,

    I was annoyed that someone would go on there claiming to be SP on FB.

    I posted on there that SP owns steveperry.com and he doesnt have that up and running. And he only sends messages through Fan Asylum. I was trying to be nice about it. But anyone else wanna go on can blast him as well! LOL

    Debs 🙂

    • Hey Debs! I just posted a comment below yours, I hope it’s not the real Steve ’cause I was kind of mean. Now we know each other also!

      • Right On Blue!

        Oh well! I’m pretty damn sure it’s not the REAL SP! So they can just live with it!

        Cool!

        Debs 🙂

  157. Debs, Marylou, I wonder why someone would want to pretend to be another (famous) person. Maybe this guy is a sex preditor, looking to hook up with somone.

  158. Debs,
    You said everything I was going to say. Marylou, I am so glad to hear you are doing better. I will continue to pray for your health and for an NED in your results, as well. Fight the good fight sister. Steve needs his fans and we need our friend and fellow Perry Sister. Keep it up Marylou. To the rest of the sisters, hope all is going well. Leaving for San Diego on Friday and packing my Perry goggles.

    • Lisa, Thanks for your support. I am a fighter for sure. It isn’t going to be easy getting me off this earth. If I have to go, you can be sure it will be kicking and screaming and cat hair flying all over the place. Maybe some bent halos too.

      I am SO glad you are going to San Diego. Woooo I am hoping you spot our Steve, better yet, he bumps into you and spills your purse. Haha, then you can have a nice chat.

      Have a safe and wonderful trip.

  159. Hi Ladies! A Steve Perry just surfaced on Facebook’s Steve Perry fan club (the one with the 6,622 members). If you’re on facebook, please take a peek and let me know if you think it’s the Real man. I don’t believe it is, I don’t think he’d say Journey is his employer.

    Also, there have been recent Facebook discussions about how SP really feels about his fans. A YouTube video titled Steve Perry, The Voice’ will show him hugging and talking to all these women who were near his Hollywood Star. I had thought I’d seen every YouTube video of him, but this one was quite a surprise!

    • Hey Blue,

      Yeah, I saw that too and dont believe it’s SP at all.

      Debs 🙂

    • ..forgot to mention, this SP is found leaving a comment on the Wall, then in his profile he says to spread the word (that he’s on facebook).

      • Blue,

        Not sure who is going to do it but they need to be popped for doing that shit! That is garbage. Especially for people that dont know that SP would not be doing anything like that.

        He uses Fan Asylum and that is all. If he ever uses steveperry.com he will let us all know legitimatly and not on FB.

        Debs 🙂

      • Hi Blue,
        It isn’t our Stevie. I have been doing pretty good. Let’s see how that goes after these next tests are finished.

        Monday, I had an MRI tomorrow blood work, and then I am waiting for an appointment for a PET/CT scan.

        I still get tired, but I WILL live to hear a new CD 🙂 I want that next scan to say NED. (no evidence of disease)

    • Hi Blue,
      I really don’t think it’s our Steve. If it was, he would have like a MILLION friends. Steve has said that if we ever see something on myspace or online, it’s not him because he doesn’t do that. He said he owns steveperry.com but has not done anything with it yet.

      Wow, I’m surprised you didn’t see that video before. Do you remember the last lady, she was crying. She looked like she was going to pass out before he got to her. WOW, that was something.

      I wish he would DO something with his website. That would be great.

      • Hi there Marylou! In reading your comments lately, it sounds like you’re feeling much better these days…hope that is true! Oh yeah, about the website, you say his is steveperry.com and I remember SP saying he owns it, but this Fake SP is referencing steveperryonline.net as his website. I wish Facebook could verify accounts like Twitter does. Unfortunately, this guy is fooling so many as people are leaving comments for the real man. Wish I could have brought some great news today.

  160. Just dropped in to see what’s up. I hope you ladies had a lovely weekend! Keep your smoke detectors charged up for any Steve Perry alarms. Ha, Where there’s smoke it must be Steve Perry, as we all know he’s hot enough to fry a frozen turkey, bake a ham and roast a hen all at the same time, in 15 seconds flat! LOL I am totally in love that man! Anyway girls, have a Perry fun day…

  161. INTERVIEW OF THE DAY…

  162. Hey All,

    Question for you…just watching the YouTube Interview with the DJ in Toronto, Canada. Steve says that he has a private CD that he sold on the FTLOSM Tour.

    DID ANYONE BUY THAT?? If so, where the heck are they??? Because I would love to have a copy of that!!!

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi Debs, Hi Everyone,
      I didn’t know anything about a private CD. Oh geezz. Say, could you post a link to that interview? We have to find out about this.

    • Hello debbie lou, That interview was good!its like the one he did a few weeks ago where hes needing to be back again he has something to say again! where his soul is crying out to be heard one more time! I just feel a summer tour will happen and his new cd will be out by then. I bet you hes has been in the studio already fooling around with his new songs and testing them out. I believe when Elliot Yamin twitter saying Perry was working next door to him Elliot also said he was rehearsing for his upcoming tour when he seen perry next door. Elliot was in Chille on tour and in the EarthQuake but hes ok and back home.

      • Hey Ladies…I just want to know who has those CD’s he was selling at his FTLOSM Tour and where the heck are they and how do I get my mitts on one of them!!!

        Anyone have one??

        Debs 🙂

    • Hey Debs,
      Thanks for those links. It seems that I saw one of them before but it was incomplete. These had more information. I totally missed him saying he had some CDs from his own private collection. I wonder if there is anything on ebay?? I’m going to search.

      Hey Cutlets, I know it’s a long shot, but I was hoping Steve would announce something on March 20th, first day of Spring, a great time for new beginnings.

      Guess we will just have to WAIT but it gets more difficult every week 😦 but I know it will be worth it.

      • Hi Mary, Hope you are feeling good with your health and the weather is warming up for you sista! Hey March 20th sounds great to me putting out a new album, and a tour for the summer. Anyway he wants it if thats the way he wants it! I’ll be there! Well its off to my moms for some good Italian cooking , and my family at least once a week gets a burn free meal !lol Well peeps have a great weekend!!! I love you perry now get your sexy ass moving!!!

  163. Hi Marylou,

    Anything in honor of Steve Perry sounds great to me… But, Oh Yea, there would be another excuse for cake again, Look Out! I celebrate Steve Perry everyday, I just haven’t thought about making it an excuse to throw down a party or anything. If I invited anyone it would be just Steve himself. If I could get him there in the first place, I sure wouldn’t want to mess up a good thing! LOL

  164. Hi Ladies,

    Lisa that was an interesting article, old or new anything about Steve Perry is good reading. Thanks again! Hey cutlets, you shouldn’t worry too much about the cake, that tends to happen when one has been cooped up all winter…

    I Believe New Years Resolutions should only be made in the spring because by the time spring arrives we have either broken them all or forgotten them altogether, I think we should make our New Year’s Resolutions on St. Patti’s Day instead, or maybe even invent another national holiday to really screw things up! How about Happy Swearing Day?

    We could all gather round drinking champagne while swearing we’ll never do this or that again…Hmmm, wonder if that would make a difference in holding to commitment? Getting a fresh start in spring somehow makes more since to me… Marylou, tell me, How would you feel about a National Swearing Day? Do ya think we could put a new twist on another old tradition? I mean really, how many of you have kept a New Year’s Resolution so far??? Interesting that Winter could be the reason most of us fail to do so. Oh well, I’ll be in and out looking for anymore news on our Stevie. Hope you ladies have a nice day. Take care and stay young!!!

    • Hi Love, Well I dunno about a National Swearing day but I sure would go for a National Steve Perry Day, and have it at spring time, the Vernal Equinox, Oh yeah, new beginnings. I’m all for that.

      I never made a New Years Resolution 😦 Ok, my bad. I don’t want the guilt. This year Spring comes in on the 20th, and I would love to celebrate the first Steve Perry Vernal Equinox. Haha, what fun. That’s the day the egg stands on it’s end, and please………nobody tell me it’s an old wives tale cause I do it every year.

      So Gals, What do you think? Spring = National Steve Perry Day?

    • Hi love, Everyday at my house is National Swear Day! instead of the champagne its vodka, and the commitment never works. About the cake, add spring,summer,and fall too! Hey Mary I think I will try that egg trick myself on the 20th and really see if it works. Im in for a special perry day but in this house everyday is a special perry day. Well gals enjoy your night and watch American Idol! Hey Deb, those story jokes you send me I love them they crack me up crazy lady!!!

      • Hahaha Cutlets,
        You crack me up too. If I wasn’t on this damned medicine, a little Vodka would be great. Well, that’s the reason I didn’t pick National Swearing Day because there is enough of that around here EVERY day 🙂

        Ya know, I think it makes perfect sense, Spring, the Vernal Equinox, everything renewed. That would be a great time for Steve to release a CD. We can use that until Steve releases the CD and then switch the date to the release date if everybody wants 🙂 How about that?

  165. Hey ladies,
    I found this interesting article that never made print until this site got permission from the interviewer to print it. It’s very telling. Mostly things we already know, some new, more detailed info. It’s from when Steve released FTLOSM. It was too long to post so here is the link. Enjoy. Hope all of you are doing well.
    http://steveperryfanclub.homestead.com/StevePerryConversationWithDaveR.html

  166. Hi again ladies,

    You are so right about the chemistry. A.P. just doesn’t have the charisma or stage presence that Steve Perry has. Even when Steve was not running and jumping across the stage he could hypnotize a rocket right into space, or convince a psychic the future was yesterday, I mean really, Steve could charm the dynamite off a suicide bomber… O.K. maybe not, but, I do believe he could charm the skin off a catfish. Having said all that, I also believe that every woman who ever laid eyes on Steve Perry as he sang has been forever cursed with the desire to call him their soul mate. How miraculous is that? Poor Steve! I do hope out of all the love for him in the world he finds one worthy of him…Like ME! Just kidding! Well maybe not… Oh, I dunno! I know everyone here was thinking that! Oh yea, anyway, back to chemistry gone in sixty seconds without Steve, I think by now Neal must realize what a huge error was made on his part…He’ll never again receive the kind of attention he had with Steve by his side. What a shame! I used to think a lot more of him, now he seems to be fading in the background of guitarist. Although, I must say all that could change if he would get off that stubborn high horse of his and round up the stallions again. He,he! Fake Journey is very accurate, it was more like walking the plank! Wonder “Who’s Crying Now?” as it just began to play on the radio…LOL… Interesting…Anyway, I hope all of you have a Perry Beautiful Day and I am happy to hear there has been a break in the weather for the most part. I am waiting for spring here as well, It will be greatly welcomed by many this year. You ladies let me know if you hear anything new, I’ll be watching for it! Thanks!

    • Hi Love, Hi Everyone:

      I had to laugh at your phrase “I also believe that every woman who ever laid eyes on Steve Perry as he sang has been forever cursed with the desire to call him their soul mate.”

      Oh I remember that day so well. June 4, 1983, so close I could have hit him with a spitball and he did look dead into my eyes. That was IT. Hooked forever 🙂

    • Hi love, LOL, Every phrase you said is so true and so funny. Now if perry could only charm the cake out of my mouth along with the fat off my hips I could pose for playboy! Arnel will never capture the true sprit of journey, and caine will never capture the beauty in any songs like he did when perry co/wrote with him. Journey died for me the same day it died for perry and no other frontman will ever bring that magic back! I feel Caine runs the group now because neal never did have any back-bone with anything. I feel neal along with caine always blamed perry for everything that went wrong with the band but yet they were always along for the ride with every decision!!! You know what I say? they can kiss my big fat ass and then some! Perry is so needed back!!!

      • Hey Cutlets, Hi Everyone:

        Cutlets, I can’t find your last post where you were burning the potatoes………lmao. Girl, you need a laptop for the kitchen if you are going to be in there for any length of time, or at the very least, earphones with Perry singing, that’s me………all over the house 🙂

        Ya know, this site is a bit intimidating and if any of my Perry Sistas would help me out, I wonder how I start a new thread with the proper date. Any advice would be appreciated.

        I am doing just great today BECAUSE I got an appointment with a new Oncologist. I don’t and have never liked the Onc. I currently have, and it isn’t him that has kept me good, it was the surgeon and the medication. My current Onc is just an uncaring jerk.
        If I like this new guy, I am going to switch to him. If he’s pleasant, it will be more than I have been getting.

        Hope tomorrow is a little warmer so I can get outside and get some work done. Hope today was a very Perry day for everyone. At least the sun was shining.

  167. Hi Ladies!
    That is Neal and his son is also in the band. I stumbled across a promo page on myspace where the names are listed. I don’t know about the rest of you but, I was a bit disappointed with the video. Somehow I was expecting a bit more knowing that was Neal on guitar… I dunno, maybe good for some, just not my flavor of taste I guess. Kind of like expecting a hot fudge sundae and getting an ice cream sandwich instead. Instead of Oh Yea! It was only so, so. Gee, Think I’ll head to the freezer now, although, I should be heading out for a long walk instead. LOL Better yet, turn up the radio and dance away that winter baggage. Anyway, I hope you northerners are getting close to thawing out soon. I’ll be checking in to see if you hear anything else new on our man Steve. Have fun and stay warm!

    • Hi Love, hehe yep that’s about what I said too. Got to give the kids credit for getting up on stage.

      I saw it posted before on Scarab. 🙂

    • Hi love, Us yankees are starting to get better weather here in Ny but its still a little chilly. I never expect a hot fudge sundae performance by Neal anymore instead the mans lucky if he can live up to a dixie cup! Without steve the chemistry was GONE,GONE,GONEin 60 seconds after he left!!! I have no use for the fake new Journey!!!

      • Hehe Cutlets,
        Did you watch the video? When I first saw it I had a very good laugh. It did my heart good to see Neal busting ass to make those kids sound like something, and he was NOT successful.

        YES, we are thawing out. That is wonderful. I can’t wait for Spring. Sunday will be a high of 50 degrees.

        No news about Steve yet 😦 We will just keep watching.

  168. According to the Belly Up Tavern’s website, it is The Neal Schon Band and the small write up they have is about NS. So I am guessing that it is NS that is playing and not the kids. I knew that a few of the kids had their own band but don’t hear much about them.

    • Hi Gina,

      I think this is what you will be finding.

      • Hi Mary, They are drowning eachother out, and thats how the now journey sounds! nobody is insync with eachother! Sorry but when perry and journey were together they complimented and their chemistry together was magical!!! This is pure shit!!! Hey Kel, LOL his hair looks like when perms go wrong!!! Steve where the hell are ya!!!

    • Wow! Whats with the wig on Neal’s head?
      More than a few on You Tube commented on it too. Also Neal is looking a bit thin….not a bad thing just an observation I have. They also are saying he looks like Bruce Jenner….Not sure I see that one but I did think last year at the Super bowl he looked like Bruce Springsteen, Just sayin

      • Haha, you are right !! It must be his son. I didn’t enlarge it before and I can plainly see now that the young man looks exactly like Neal but isn’t Neal. I think the kid’s name is Myles. Glad you mentioned that.

  169. Hi ladies,

    Haven’t been on for a long while…found something interesting today…was looking up the Belly Up Tavern in Del Mar as I am going to Del Mar to visit friends. Anyway…on March 30, the Neal Schon Band is playing there! Gee…is Journey not doing so great without Steve to grace the microphone or what??? They may just be in between touring/cds but thought how weird it was that Neal Schon would be playing at Belly Up. Oh well, just thought I’d share. Have a great day!

    • Hi Gina,
      I do know that Neal’s son Miles, and some of the other kids from Journey members have formed a band. It’s possible that they could be calling themselves that. It seems that I saw a youtube about the kids. That would not surprise me.

    • Hi gina and marylou, Deb, Im going to Ca, in May and I am going to try and see Del Mar so maybe I can catch Perry coming down the road or coming out of his house! I heard from a friend that neals son, and thee other band members kids played with journey on tour for a few concerts. I guess now daddy Neal is going to do a few gigs with the kids. Screw Neal HATE HIM! My concern is perry touring and his new cd. Have fun in CA and let us know if you see the god himself! Thanks Mary for that link because I am going to order it and always wanted to know how they were on the road together. I like behind the scenes. Hey Deb, Im kinda sad the Olympic is over it was pretty good this year but at least I still can watch my American Idol!!!

    • hmmm….think any old friends would show?

  170. Hi guys, You got that right Deb just keeping low and busy, waiting to hear some kind of news on the new cd. Rock Sugar is great and the lead singer if he had meat on his face sounded like joey from SlipKnot. Thanks Mary for putting that up because Deb did give me the link but it just wouldnt work for me. So thanks to both of you. Hi to the MN person, My father was born there and we visit family up there in Ely and Lake Vermillion. Its beautiful country but you dont want to breakdown in you car during the winter because its brutal. Hope everybody is having a great day and Deb, I have been watching the Olympics along with American Idol and Im kinda sad that tomorrow night it ends. Well so long!!!

    • Hey Cutlets, Hi Everyone:

      Just surfing along, I found a website that has the Frontiers and Beyond Journey American Tour 1983 DVD.

      I bought this through Amazon.com and it probably was a bootleg, but I really didn’t care. This DVD had a lot of stuff about how the roadies built everything from the lights to the stage. It is a GREAT DVD, and of course about 3/4 of the way through they start talking about the BIG stadium I talked about JFK in Philly, June 1983.

      This other site has the DVD available for $22.00 and I’m sure plus shipping. I paid 32.00 plus shipping so it is a good price if anyone is interested.

      In this DVD on stage in Philly, Steve is Unbelievably Great !! You will hear Steve say I see all those little lights a shinin’. Many years ago in my dad’s day, when there was a great performance by someone, people used to “give them the match.” That’s what they called it, and then it evolved into a lighter.

      You all probably saw snippets of this DVD on youtube, but there is a lot on it being on the road and never being late for a show and what they went through that is just amazing. This is the link if anyone is interested.
      I have some work to do in the computer room so I will be listening to our Steve while I work 🙂

      http://www.gemm.com/item/JOURNEY/AMERICAN–TOUR–FRONTIERS–AND–BEYOND–DVD/GML977948175/

      • Hey Marylou,

        I love that DVD! It’s great isnt it when they got stuck on the mountain pass! 🙂

        Excellent DVD for everyone to get!

        Debs 🙂

  171. Hi ladies!

    Guess I should consider myself very lucky… While it may be cold , we have no snow. Just rain, rain and more rain. Oh well, I was just hoping you gals had something new on your Perry-dar. I hope you all get a warm up soon. I love to watch the snow fall and even play in it on occasion, but the thought of driving in it and shoveling to open doors sounds like a bit too much. Marylou, if you do get that flame thrower just take extra care in how you use it…You may wind up with a cooked goose or maybe even a moose. Anyway, I should turn up the music now, Steve is on again. Have a great day ladies and stay warm!

    • hello ladies, Does any one know where I can find Steve’s Oh Sherrie on Pop Up Video, VH1. I cant find it any where. Thanks for the help.

    • Hi Ladies,

      Well usually we up in Minnesota are the ones with all the snow this time of year and I gotta say it’s been really nice not getting our usual pounding.
      No new on the new release yet I take it?

      Enjoying all great friends I have met on this site.

      Later taters,
      Kel

      • Hey Kel,
        I don’t recognize the name on here…but, by all means we welcome ANY fan of our man. You are correct, as far as the silence goes…this is the quiet after the storm (no pun intended as far as actual weather goes, as I know some of my sisters/fellow “Wives” are experiencing). This is the agonizing lull before the next storm that we ALL are awaiting . I did post something recently as far as speaking with one very great song writer that has confirmed he has been writing with Steve for the past few years, which in itself is grand, as Steve has not written with him since the Street Talk album. I, personally, take that as a serious move in the RIGHT direction. This guy Randy Goodrum writes/co-writes some serious hits. Look him up at http://www.randygoodrum.com as well as facebook him. He is very friendly and accommodating and will answer your questions promptly. Def worth looking into. Maybe if enough of us display an interest Randy will forward messages. Anyway there are a great group of ladies on here. I hope you are one and will join us. Welcome, again.

      • Thanks Lisa,
        I have posted to this site a few times, but mostly just enjoy the sites information and especially the news posts!

        I will pose a few questions to Randy’s site later today.

        Kel

  172. Separate Ways, (Worlds Apart)
    It kinda feels that way at the moment…Where’d everybody go???

    • Hey Love, Hi Everyone:

      Love, I don’t know what part of the country you are in but we are now getting slammed with the 4th snow storm of the season. Before this one is done, we will have broken an all time record, and goodness, I am about 25 or 30 miles Northeast of Philadelphia in a comfortable suburb. I WANT A FLAME THROWER !!!

      Steve says “Are you kidding? I LOVE SNOW.” Well come on over Steve. I have an extra shovel.

      As I type, the snow isn’t too bad, but look out tonight and tomorrow! I suppose I will be doing some housework, maybe washing some curtains to get a jump on Spring. I don’t have any doctor appointments since I saw my Oncologist on the 19th.

      In the evening, I will just watch one of my DVDs or look up youtube videos. One song that is fascinating is when Steve sang back up to Clannad. The song White Fool is controversial, but you can hear Steve singing in the background and mostly gaelic. Very Cool.

      Hang in Love, most people are probably just as annoyed with the weather as I am.

    • Hi love and Mary, I guess everybodys just waiting on steve and doing their own things at the moment. Ever since the interviews nothing much is going on and there is really nothing new to say with perry untill his album comes out. Its cold here in NY and we are suppose to get snow tonight untill tomorrow afternoon. Does anybody watch American Idol!!!

      • Hey Cuts! 🙂

        Yeah, laying low waiting for SP to make an announcement of a new album.

        In the meantime job hunting, watching Olympics, dog shows, Poultry shows and sleeping in! LOL

        Nope, not watching Idol at the moment! I’m an x-jock so love the Olympics! HAHA

        Debs 🙂

  173. While scrolling down about mid page I did notice that someone has been posting rude comments that seem to have the same little blue stamp in the top right corner of the post that appear on my post. Could someone explain why that is??? Has someone been hacking my system again??? I do believe that several of you can tell by reading that I didn’t post all of those.

    Anyway, Thanks for the link Lisa, I found it very interesting…Hope all is well with you ladies and please let us know if you hear anything more. And by all means, Stay Warm!

  174. Hey girls,
    Hope everyone is staying warm and dry and doing well. Just a bit of new information…I was doing some research on our sexy man, Steve and came across Randy Goodrum’s website. If you recall, he is the man that co-wrote some of Steve’s hits like Foolish Heart and Oh, Sherrie. If you read page 10 he made some remarks regarding recently writing with him again.
    http://www.randygoodrum.com
    I also went to Randy’s facebook page and left a comment for him. This was the response I got this morning from Randy…
    Randy Goodrum commented on your wall post:

    “Lisa, Yes, I’ve written several new songs with Steve Perry over the last few years, however Steve works with dozens of writers and I don’t know what the final outcome of his upcoming projects will be. Thanks for the comment.”
    Just thought I’d share. Have a great day.

    • Hi Lisa, We are suppose to get snow again tonight, and Thursday, but it should not be as bad as 2 weeks ago.Thanks for sharing this news with us, and I never knew this guy co/wrote so many beautiful songs and with Perry. This gives me great hope knowing that perry has been writing with wonderful, famous, songwriters and he does not need caine at all. There is a album coming and I bet a tour this summer!!!

    • Hi Lisa,
      Thanks for finding that website. Randy is a great song writer writing with so many different people.

      I think many of us are just waiting for a new CD from Steve. Frankly, I don’t care what he writes and sings. I just want to hear something new. I don’t think Steve needs anyone to write with.

      We are not supposed to get snow tonight, just rain but icy at times. Hope we get enough to wash all this dirty snow away.

  175. The video is well worth viewing and done in very good taste. It is more of a compliment to Steve Perry as apposed to a poor imitation. Don’t get me wrong, as the rest of you, no one can replace Steve Perry in my eyes, though I am absolutely open to creative tributes such as that one…It was put together nicely! That heavy metal touch is great! Oooh Yea! LOL I must say, that is the best version I have seen since Steve Perry sang it himself…

  176. Ooooh Yea! Beats the pants off Arnels karaoke version… Steve Perry himself would be proud of this performance!!!

    Thanks for posting Debs!

    • I thought it was pretty cool when I saw it.

      I was shocked to see my local News Station playing it! 🙂

      Debs 🙂

  177. Thought you all might be interested in checking this out! I saw it on the news last night!

    It’s by Rock Sugar – Dont Stop The Sandman (Journey meets Metallica) 🙂

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi Everyone,
      Debs, I can’t get it. It said Malformed video Id. 😦
      I’ll try to look it up on youtube. thanks.

    • Debs, I found it and in my opinion, Steve Perry would be ever so proud of these guys. They did a great job on the song, added their own things to it, and made Arnel look VERY VERY BAD.

      I hope Steve does get to see this youtube. It’s a real tribute to this wonderful song Steve made famous.

      I don’t know why I could not click on your link and get to it, but I did find it and copy the link again just in case someone else has a problem. It is worth seeing. Thank you

  178. Thanks Lisa!
    I enjoyed the pics as well as the song…Sweet and Simple!
    This is just another way to look at Steve Perry or any other that may have touched a heart as profoundly as he has. There are angels among us!

    I was walking alone when I looked up to see
    Some heavenly spirit calling to me
    With eyes like the sky reflecting the light
    Lifting me gently to join him in flight

    No greater emotion of love had I known
    Till he took me to places I’d never been shown
    His voice brought me comfort as we made decent
    Into the land from which he was sent

    I heard someone laughing as we touched the ground
    Saying what was so special about the one he had found
    The spirit replied with joy in his voice
    She is the student of my very own of choice

    I’ll show her the world in return for her heart
    And she will know love even when we’re apart
    No greater lesson could anyone give
    To a mere mortal human than love from within

    She’ll know of the power of which we’ve received
    And when life is through she’ll return here to me
    Given the chance to return to the earth
    And prove love’s the reason for everyone’s birth

    Wow, Now that was some lesson, huh?

  179. Here’s a video of a SWEET AND SIMPLE song that has some pics I have never seen before. Thought I’d share.

    • Hi Lisa, What a man and does he have a brother! whose singled and looks like Perry!lol My hubby just takes me out to dinner and gives me chocolates that I dont need but I still devourer! Now I understand why hubby got me the threadmill for Christmas! Hey Deb, what surprise did you give to hubby for that special day!!!lol!!! Well I hope all had a great day!!!

  180. Okay, I have to share this with everyone. My hubby and I have been married for 21 1/2 years and just celebrated knowing eachother 24 years last Monday. We really don’t give eachother Valentine’s day gifts anymore, we usually just exchange cards. So this morning, I was sitting at the kitchen table, he comes in and I give him my card along with 2 chocolate covered marshmallow hearts(his favorite). He gives me my card and it’s cute, 2 cuddly puppies all snuggled up, but inside is a homemade card ( made at work on his computer) on one side is a close up picture of Steve Perry from the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony and reads as follows, Hi, this is Steve Perry with a very special message for Lisa (that’s me!!) on Valentine’s Day (now an arrow to flip the card over) and the back reads; Thanks for being such a good fan! Then a close up shot from the Frontiers Tour. Underneath the picture it reads, PS Don’t forget to give your hubby lots of hugs and kisses! Boy oh boy, we all had a really good laugh, especially my boys, who are all Journey fans(with SP singing of course)! Anyhow, I think this was the best VD gift he has ever given me, shows a lot of thought and I have always told him that it is the thought that counts more over the price of a gift!! I wish I knew how to copy it and show everyone, but oh well, that is just too much to ask of me when it comes to my computer skills! I hope everyone had a great day!

  181. Hi guys, Great poem love that one did make me laugh at the end! A very Happy Valentines day to my sexy man steve perry and to the rest of you crazy people on this site! As usual Deb your right with Perry not being in the remake which I thought SUCKED BIG TIME! What is sad is they say these are the greatest singers around of today. Please god bring back the talent that has been missing for so many damn years!Hi marylou, I am glad to hear that your daughter will go with you to see Steve that should be really fun for the both of you. If my family does not want to go I’ll go myself I dont really care because this is one concert I will not miss!!! Love you Steve!!!

  182. Happy Valentines Day Everyone!

    A candlelight dinner with champagne so fine
    To share all alone with my Valentine
    A big heart shaped cake so velvety red
    Scattered red rose pedals all around the bed

    Like the words from the music we slowly descend
    To the depths of our soul where love never ends
    Sharing together our new favorite song
    Then the sound of the doorbell going Ding-Dong
    (Like the Screeching of brakes) ERRRRRRRRRRRK!

    I open the door and could not believe
    There was Steve Perry standing before me
    I welcomed him in and poured him a glass
    Steve said it’s so nice to be alone with you at last

    He smiled as he laughed then gave me a wink
    As he knelt down before me I felt my heart sink
    He reached in his pocket and handed to me
    A bright shiny object made especially for me

    He said please forgive me for taking so long
    To prove I still love you, please don’t get me wrong
    Please accept this small token, and tell all the world
    This new CD’s better than any other before
    Huh?
    CD? Wait a minute…What about that ring? Steve? Steve? Where’d ya go sweetie???

    As I awakened from my silly dream, my Valentine waiting, though he was not pleased. He said: “This party is over and you are to blame!” So go have another glass of champagne…I said oh, now, honey! He said: “Don’t honey me! I heard you call out to somebody named Steve!” I said oh, now, baby, please listen and wait, as he walked out the door, it slammed in my face.But I didn’t cry I knew what to do, I cranked up Steve Perry as he sang “Missing You” (the story you just read is in not even closely related to the truth in any way) Oh well…

    Hope It made you laugh a little, have a great week ladies!

    • Lovemso, That was great! It did make me laugh. Hope everyone’s Valentine’s day is happy and full of love. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY STEPHEN RAY PERRY!!!! LOVE YOU BUNCHES! (lol-I tried to shout that as loud as I could so he can hear it!)

    • Hi Love,
      That is SO Darned cute!! Well yesterday, we drove not too far from here where they were having a Celtic Festival, and it was very nice. It isn’t Steve’s music, but they do have some good groups.

      Hope everyone had a nice Valentines Day.

  183. Happy Valentines Day to all you ladies and Steve Perry. Go ahead and have that chocolate and eat it too! I will be enjoying the day surrounded by all my lovable fur babies.

    I did see the WATW Remake on TV last night and was so dissappointed. Nothing like the original masterpiece. No Steve Perry. Only a few knew how to SING! I won’t be buying it.

    I think things here will slow down for a while. I hope the next time I comment, I will be bringing you some great news or a great “new and recent” picture of our man Steve.

    Take care everyone, Blue

  184. only four words, ” the Best Voice Ever!

  185. Ok, thought it was suppose to be the whole thing? But they just said the entire WATW will be tomorrow?? What the hell?? And I didnt see SP at all.

    I can honestly say that I dont like that version at all. That was just too weird!

    Debs 😦

  186. Kinda related…but it’s SP so I guess that will work!!!

    Do you all have any clue when they are going to premier We Are The World at the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics tonight?? I want to see if SP is in the vid anywhere!!

    I know I have never seen so many freaking out of State licesene plates as tonight on the way home from Portland, OR. UGH! I’m thinking that everyone is on the way up I-5 to Vancouver, BC. since from Portland it’s like 5-6 hr drive straight up the road.

    Debs 🙂

    • Hey Debs and all,
      I missed it. I think it was about 5:30 p our time (west coast). I have been scouring youtube but nobody has posted yet. Oh, well…I don’t think it was much of a loss. NO STEVE! Although I love anything in 3D, so there’s that as a loss. Hope everyone has been doing well. Sorry I haven’t been around much the last few days. Been busy, which I guess is a good thing. Marylou, I hope you have been feeling good. You snow people take care and stay warm. I would send you some California sun but I am still waiting for my shipment. More rain now. A scorching 58 degrees. Oh, that probably is scorching to you guys right now, isn’t it. Sorry. Will send you some Fahrenheits. Love to all. So quiet now AFTER the storm as far as our man goes, huh. Well I guess he better be gettin’ busy if he is to keep his word about putting out new material.

  187. Now Then, if Steve Perry himself could only see this thread!!!

  188. Thanks nuKnuK!

    This is more like it!!!!!

  189. Oooops again! That’s to support Steve Perry… Just thinking of him makes me crazy…LOL, How bout the rest of you?

  190. There has to be another way…If we could post the latest at the top instead of rewinding the whole thread to see the last post, it would be much easier than this…Keep posting if you have any ideas on how to solve this one. I mean, I’ll do anything to support of Steve Perry, but this thread is so long I don’t know how many people will actually keep flipping to the bottom to read it. On some of the other sites they have the last post at the top of the page. Just a thought…Again have a Great Valentines Weekend!

  191. Oooops! That was just a thought not a though…

  192. Hi ladies, Just a though for Valentines Day, As I have said before, imagination sometimes steps in and takes over, but, Ohhh, what a feeling! Anyway, I hope you are all safe and warm this weekend and thanks again for the links and latest info you provide…Have a great Valentines Day! See you all soon…

    Once upon a time in a land far away
    I had a funny valentine who loved to laugh and play
    He’d sing about tomorrow and whisper things so sweet
    I felt just like an angel with clouds beneath my feet

    Connecting dots with freckles, he’d laugh about my chin
    Where he could draw a seven beneath my silly grin
    He said we’d get together somewhere along the way
    And talk about tomorrow and where our future lay

    His face forever haunts me everywhere I go
    Staring at the music sheet I see a silver note
    That tells me he’s still with me no matter where I stand
    I feel his heart is beating in the palm of my very hand

    Valentine, Oh Valentine, I’ll always think of you
    Within my soul you’ll always live till time on earth is through
    Open up the door and let me in while there’s still time
    Before this weekends over please be my Valentine

    Oh well, it’s not that great but, it was all I could come up with at the moment…
    Happy Valentines Day Everyone!

  193. Hmmm…just listening to Quincy & Lionel Interview. They DIDNT have the solos preform in a circle with the artists stepping up to the mics. They said that they had to record each one seperatly how they are used to being recorded! Ok, that just turns me off! Sounds to me like a bunch of babies.

    Will the real artists please step forward…hmmm…that would be the artists from 25 yrs ago…THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

    SAD!!

    Debs 🙂

  194. OK, here’s the link to the full Scotland interview with pics:

  195. the original singers werent asked to participate (goggle watw 2010)

  196. Blue, Do you know for a fact that SP has a part singing in the Remake of WATW?? I hadnt heard that. If that is true…holy crap that is awesome! And I will buy it! 🙂 If he’s not on there I wont buy it! No point!

    You all should get your 3D Glasses out because I heard that it’s going to be shown in 3D tonight!!! Where the hell do you get 3D Glasses from??

    Stay safe all of you back East!!! 🙂

    Debs 🙂

    • Oh no, he’s not singing in the Remake. I only heard him say that he was there so maybe there will be some footage of him before the show and the song begin.

  197. Just a reminder that the We Are The World Remake is supposed to air tonight before the Olympic games start. I just want to see Steve Perry!

    I just tried to get the interview video from YouTube, but got an error message, will try again later.

    (btw, I was finally rescued yesterday by a guy with a monster snowblower)

  198. Hi mary, That sounds the same here 3 to 4 foot drifts. Hubby had to take the storm door out to shovel the snow away from the kitchen door. We cant get to it any other way unless we throw a rope uo to the deck and climb, and thats not going to happen unless I have a ambulance below waiting. Im sure perry will tour in the warmer months where most people could get to the concert and not be snowed in. Im sure the summer months he will tour when hes ready. Not to worry perry knows alot of his fans are old bags like me and Im sure he would want all his fans to get there safely. Hell I’ll pick you up if I have too!Warning though, I get lost coming out of my own driveway and thats even with my TOM,TOM! How have you been feeling? Do you have children, and whats their ages?!!! TTYL friend and have a beautiful night!!!

    • Hi Cutlets:
      Wow, what a night and day. Just a few minutes ago I finally got my internet back.

      Getting lost? Haha, I have a son and a daughter. The son gets lost, but the daughter is good with directions. We have a Garmin GPS but I have never needed to use it.

      Well, if I don’t use it beforehand, I will be practicing with it. Oh yes, I have a 7 year old grandson. Little germ machine, he’s cute.

      I’m feeling as good as one can get in this weather. Not that I mind a little snow, but this is NOT a little snow. I can still hear Steve saying,”Are you kidding? I love the snow.” He would not like it if he had to do all the shoveling. Next year we get a bigger snow blower and pray that we never have to use it.

      My next appointment with my Oncologist is a week from today. He will probably want to send me for another scan. They are such a pain in the a**. I have had so many of them I should GLOW radioactive green.

      Since the internet was down, I baked some banana spice cake with walnuts. Well, if Steve tours fairly close, I’ll grab my daughter and we will head out. I already asked her if she would go with me, and her answer was “Yep, we will leave these men in the dust and go.” She means it too:)

  199. hI deb, OKEY DOKEY POKEY! Blue if you dont mind I would ;love the link, and love, cupid better not be missing my big ass with his arrow or he better wear glasses next time!lol I know in my heart steve will tour! I dont believe after all these years he will just make a cd and not tour with it, I think they both go hand in hand when the itch is back!!! Hi MaryLou, I cant even get out of my kitchen door to get onto my deck thats how bad it showed here in NY!!!

    • Hi Cutlets,
      Oh Geezz, and I thought I had problems. At the very end of my dining room is a sun room, no heat, just a 3 season room. That door always gets the snow blown against it, so hubby has to go out of the front door, around the back and shovel out the door. We got at least 2 feet but the drifts are about 3 feet at least.

      If Steve tours, I hope he doesn’t tour this area in the winter time. If he was in New York or Philly and we had a snow like this and I could not get there, I don’t know what I would do. They have even shut down public transportation.

  200. Hey Cuts!!

    I will be emailing you shortly!

    Blue, if you could post that link I think Imissed the piccies that Cuts is talking about! UGH!

    Debs 🙂

  201. Hi Blue, Wow his hair did get longer I guess hes getting ready for the stage again! I hope so! He looked a little heavier then at the U2 concert but hey he still looks great to me!Hey Blue do you have a link for the merrypeary video so I can see the new pictures because I really dont understand how to get on it! Im very bad with the computer.I dont even know how to get on this blog unless somebody comments and it goes to my e-mails for me to click on. Thanks! We are burried in snow here but thank god for the snowblower and a man who can use it!!!

    • Cutlets, yeah he does look alot heavier than the U2 concert photo. The pics of him in the merrypeary video are not recent, they are some photos of him that just I have not seen before. Do you still want the link?
      I’m hearing from others that his hair is very long now so lots of speculation that he is planning a comeback. Even though I’ve mentioned that I don’t think he will tour again, I wish he does because that’s the only way I’ll ever see him in person.

  202. This is not a new interview, but on YouTube, merrypeary put up the Scottish interview with SP pics and some of the pics look ‘new’ to me. It’s on the 1st page after searching SP. She’s doing another also.

  203. Hi everyone,

    Thanks Blue, I enjoy looking at anything where Steve Perry’s face and voice are included. Yet, another Great song! I agree, I wish we all could have supported the ad for Valentines Day, That would have been so much fun! Oh well, in the mean time we just pray that he decides to go ahead with recording his new songs, I would love to hear them…That man definitely has a way with words, not to mention the way he makes those words sound so incredible. I hope you ladies are staying safe and warm with all this crazy weather. I should get back to business for now, let me know if you hear of anymore new interviews.

  204. Has anyone seen a photo of SP since the one from the October U2 concert?

    In this YouTube 2010 birthday video for him, I think the first or second photo of him is more recent, his hair is longer..

  205. Love,
    That is such a beautiful poem, and I do wonder if he knows how many hearts he has touched. How could he not?

    I received an email back from Lora, and they cannot help us for Valentine’s Day.

    On a lighter note, on Saturday we got 24 inches of snow, and tonight we are going to get more snow, probably about 18 to 20 inches of snow.

    Every time the weatherman announces this, I remember Steve saying to Gary in Scotland “ARE YOU KIDDING? I LOVE THE SNOW!”

    My thought is, “Come over Steve, I have an extra snow shovel 🙂 Steve thinks he loves the snow because he had a wonderful experience on his birthday when he was a kid.

    Believe it or not, they already cancelled school for tomorrow.

    I wish we could have done something for Valentine’s Day 😦

    • Hey Marylou! I’m wondering if you are my neighbor. I haven’t been able to get out since the snowfall over the weekend and now snow is coming down all over again and they are calling for up to 20″.

      • Hi Blue,
        I live in PA. Northeast of Philadelphia. A little suburb called Levittown. I am listening to the weather at the moment and t hey are talking about blizzard conditions by rush hour tomorrow morning.

        We were expecting company for the weekend, not sure that will happen now. It’s ok, we all have Stevie to keep us warm 🙂

      • Hey again Marylou! I’m in the eastern panhandle of WVa. Looks like this storm is covering a major part of this region.

  206. Just passing through again girls, Since there didn’t seem to be anything new, I thought you might enjoy this…

    Another day I find myself searching for golden thread
    To stitch the whole within myself where emptiness was left
    All alone and left to dream of what I can’t replace
    Where once was a buried treasure, now nothing there to take

    Suddenly I see a glimpse of shimmering from afar
    I hear the angels song of hope calling from a distant star
    And all at once I find my soul uniting with a friend
    As one we fly away to share a love that never ends

    To those of you who find the thread just keep it for your own
    In case you find that emptiness has made your soul it’s home
    Take some time and search your heart before a stitch is made
    The seed of love when planted yields the rose that never fades

    My question now is how many seeds one human man can sew?
    How does he know which human heart has room enough to grow?
    How does he know just what it takes to yield the perfect rose?
    I guess because the man upstairs showed him all he needed to know!

    Hope you ladies are staying warm, let me know if you hear any more news about Steve…Have some fun while your at it!

  207. Here’s the response from Lora and Cyndy about V-Day messages on Fan Asylum…Sorry girls, NO GO!…..
    Hi Lisa,

    Hi Lisa,

    Thanks for your suggestion but we aren’t able to accommodate your request at this time. If/when Fan Asylum gets more involved with the Steve Perry fan community, we’ll let everyone know. We hope you enjoy the messages we post from him from time to time!

    Lora & Cyndy

    • One final idea (if the newspaper ad doesn’t pan out) is for the 8 of us to post Valentines Day messages to Steve “Right Here”. Maybe he’ll read them, maybe not, but just 8 different messages would be better than him getting 1,000+. Just an idea, I don’t even know what to say. If we decide to do this, we should decide on a day and time to post so the messages are all together.

    • In a post dtd Feb 9, 2010, Lora & Cyndy of Fan Asylum say “…If/when Fan Asylum gets more involved with the Steve Perry fan community, we’ll let everyone know. We hope you enjoy the messages we post from him from time to time! ” Steve’s long-time friends Lora Beard and Cyndy Poon are on Facebook and are accepting SP fans as friends. Anyone could send them direct and private messages.

  208. Uh oh, I had to go back and listen again…Blue, I must apologize, I misunderstood what he said about WATW, he said all new line up, not all new line, sorry for the confusion, and yea, I guess I heard what I wanted to hear instead of what he really said…Like the rest of you I get so excited when I hear his voice I have to go back for a double take. Oh well, Thanks again everyone for posting these links…Oh yea, If any of you have Cupid’s phone number please don’t be greedy, share it with the rest of us in case he misses your intended target!!! Yea, I’m talking to you cutlets! LOL Anyway, have fun ladies and keep up the good work…

  209. I will be checking Palladia TV out for sure! Not sure if Comcast has that! We will see pretty darn fast with all the concerts on! WAHOO!!

    Thanks for the heads up!!

    Debs 🙂

    • Debs, I have Dish Network satellite TV and I just came upon the channel by doing a 60’s search from my DVR (love the old stuff). As I mentioned before, thought The Verve had quit until I watched their 2009 concert singing Bittersweet Symphony and other songs.

      I guess I won’t find any Steve Perry solo concerts. Am I correct in that he didn’t tour for his first solo? And I’m only finding his FTLOSM tour on YouTube. Would love to see him on the Big Screen.

  210. Hi Blue, He did say on the long version that he would love to go to Scotland and perform there so that tells me hes thinking of touring. Did you guys here the Who lastnight on the Super Bowl? Daultry was fantastic, and hes older then Perry by like 5 years. He made it clear to me that a cd and a tour may be happening!!! He sounds very happy!!!

    • Hi Cutlets, yes I did hear him say that too.

      But one thing about all the other ol’ guys like The Who, Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, etc. is that they never stopped performing for any lengthy period of time.

      Do any of you get the Palladia TV channel? I discovered I had it not too long ago. It’s all music concerts old and new. I saw the new Journey perform, they showed the David Bowie Ziggy Stardust 70’s concert, and some groups I thought had quit like REM and the Verve are still performing. Do you remember the Zombies from the 60’s? Well they are still performing and sound great! Bad news is that they haven’t had any Steve Perry or early Journey yet. I’ll have to send them an email!

  211. Just got an email from Nick Wright and he sent me the link to the interview. But it’s the shorter of the interivews. But it was awfully nice of him to send me a reply.

    Listened to the longer interview. Very Cool!

    Debs 🙂

  212. Did anyone else hear SP say in the interview that he was in the WATW Remake? I think he was there but not to sing. Someone had tweeted that he was there but I didn’t want to start a rumor. I haven’t checked YouTube today but yesterday there was only a minute or so of Remake video. The Remake in its entirety is supposed to air on TV right before the Olympics begin (so I hear).

    I did hear SP say in two interviews that he wants to record music and we hope he will record and also release his music (so he did say record but no mention of sharing/releasing/CD unless I missed that).

    I am also getting up in years like our ol’ boy and understand why he sometimes seems happy and sometimes not so happy, there are good days and bad days like he has said. When you’ve been retired and living the easy life, we often look back at what we did in this life and wish we could live those good ol’ days again. We have so much freedom being retired so it would be with great difficulty going back out in the world, into the rat race, with constant pressure and expectation all the time. So I’m saying I really don’t expect Steve to come out and perform again, I only hope he does what he feels up to and I wish him all the best.

  213. Here is the longer version of the previous Scotland interview from last week. Enjoy!
    http://www.clyde2.com/article.asp?id=1687647&SPID=34401

    • Thanks Amy! He’s very happy in this interview and said at the end that he’d love to ‘perform’ in Scotland!

    • Hi Amy,
      Thank you for posting the longer version of the interview in Scotland. I did email them about posting the entire interview and they did send me a complimentary email showing they were going to do something about it.

      Thanks again

  214. Hi Marylou, Im so happy that steve has helped you and he puts you in the greatest mood he does the same for me as well. Perry gals sound just fine for you guys but for me you can call me Mrs Steven Ray Perry! Well guys it time to burn I mean make dinner!!!

  215. I was so happy to hear say on the scottish interview that he would love to perform in that country. I smell a newcd with a tour!!!

  216. Thanks Blue, that made me so happy. I did not know he was in the remake was it on tv? Do you know if the remake with him in it is on you-tube yet?!!!Please let me know!!!

  217. Also great hearing that Steve has a new line in the WATW remake… That is great news, Keep posting the good stuff!

  218. Thanks Blue!

    That sounded very promising as he says he is very excited about the new songs he has written…I feel a new CD in the works!

  219. Ooops, I wasn’t quite finished with that! As I was about to add, “Seja Nosso Valentim Steve, Para Sempre Seu Fielmente, Seu Perry Galoes” which means, Be Our Valentine Steve, Forever Yours Faithfully, Your Perry Gals…Yep, we got it bad for Steve alright!

  220. You can now listen to the actual interview between SP and Dave Campbell, it’s at:

    http://www.thenickwrightshow.com and it’s about halfway down the center. He sounds so much more upbeat and happy in this one.

  221. I say we call it “Case-me Syndrome do Perry de Steve” which is marry me Steve Perry Syndrome in Portuguese…Seja

    • Haha, I like the Title, very cute. Gosh this has been so much fun since Steve FINALLY said yes about the CD.

      I am feeling VERY well the last few days.

      Cutlets, you are so funny, you make me laugh.

      Do we have a name for our group or is it just the Perry Gals? That’s fine with me.

  222. Hi love, everything you said is true except for the loss of appetite! Girl thats one thing I will never lose! Its looks like you might have caught some too!!!

  223. “Please get me to the church on time” so I can save him! LOL What I really meant was have him all to myself! Ha, Ha! Perry Gals, Keep an eye on our friend Cutlets here I am a bit concerned I have heard that Perry-Marry-I-Tis is contagious And Could Cause Severe Side Effects Such As..Rapid heart beat, Shortness of breath, Heart Attack, Dizziness, Fainting, sudden onset of drooling, amnesia, mood swings and loss of appetite. Uh oh, excuse me while I get a napkin for my chin and try to remember what the heck I was saying…

  224. Hi love LOL, dont worry girl,the drug will wear off just in time for him to say I do! Going to the chaple and Im going to get married! I wonder if my now hubby will will give me away at the church! I know he would love too! I am so excited about the new cd and I know when he does that he will add a tour. I bet he will wait first just to see how great the album does. I am so happy he is doing oversea interviews because that will be very important for selling his new cd across the pond. Love that man and no need to worry love Ill take great care of him!!!LOL

  225. “Please, get me to the church on time” So I can save him! LOL

  226. Now, Now, Cutlets, calm down girl we don’t want to frighten the man! LOL I know the temptations there for you, as we are all crazy about him, I hope none of us are quite that crazy! It must be very scary to be loved by sooooooooo many… Anyway, take a deep breath and sigh…I’m hoping for at least a new CD here, I’m afraid if you were to do that we may never hear from him again! Stop making me worry girl! LOL

  227. Hi love,LOL, I choose all of the above! When I go to CA. I am going to try to become Mrs Steve Perry even if I have to put a date rape drug in his drink to get him to the alter!!!

    • Glad I ain’t the only pervert around here. If you are going to throw a date rape drug in Steve’s drink why not go all the way and add the Viagra. Then Steve would be unconcious and “up” for anything. Best of all he won’t remember a thing and won’t be able to identify you in the morning. He would just wake up and be like “Where am I and why am I naked ?”

  228. A Valentine’s Cheer

    O.K. Ladies! All Together Now! Ready? O.K. O.K. O.K… Oh yea, on the fourth line it’s multiple choice. Choose whatever suits your mood!

    Steve Perry can you hear us
    Calling out to you
    We want to be your Valentine
    A.(But Can’t afford the dues)
    B.(And show some love to you)
    C.(And share a kiss with you)
    D.(And have our way with you)
    E.(And hear a song from you)
    F.(And sing a song to you)
    G.(We want to marry you)

    Maybe someday soon we hope
    You’ll stumble on this page
    And know how much you rock our world
    On any given day

    This from all your Perry gals
    Who wanted you to see
    That you are number one to us
    We love You Steve Perry!!!

    • Well haha, D & G are great but I don’t think it would be nice. To be appropriate, unfortunately, I vote for B 🙂

  229. Hi Deb, and Amy, thanks girls for posting that clip it put me in such a great mood hearing steve sound so happy, and hearing him say he will record again!!! Life looks great again!!!

  230. Hi Lisa, I sent my e-mail to the two ladies asking them to please send a valentine message to our wonderful steve, and hopefully with all our e-mails they will. Thanks for trying to get this thing to happen for steve so he knows how much we love him!!! Your doing a great thing!!! Hi Deb!!!

  231. Hi guys, I love your poem love and pleaee keep the fart line in that was funny! Sorry Lisa about the Valentine greeting for steve but I did not realize myself it would be that much a person I thought maybe 40 bucks a head and there would be alot of people in on it. With my hubbys job up in the air at this time I can only do 40 bucks. If you get alot of people where the price will come down I am in but it looks like alot of us are in the same boat. I love steve so much and would love for this to happen too bad he couldnt put some in too!!!lol Well I hope it happens so he knows we care but I also know he would understand too. I pray steve makes his new cd happen soon and I really think he will!!!

  232. Hi again ladies,
    Was just thinking about how to write a Valentine’s Poem and well, umm this is not the way! Hopefully we’ll think of something!

    Looking over the city where His Majesty fell
    We stood in the doorway outside that hotel
    We listened in silence to the sound of our hearts
    Dancing slowly together (I heard someone fart) just kidding!!! Scratch that line!
    Dancing slowly together throwing shadows in the dark (Better?)

    Holding each other we gazed at the moon
    As both of us promised we’d meet again soon
    As rain began falling we watched from inside
    There all alone with nowhere to hide

    His song came to me like a symphony sweet
    Caressing my soul as he cried out to me
    The words sinking slowly to the back of my mind
    To someday resurface in another place and time

    As many years pass me and time takes it’s place
    Revealing that love had an untimely grace
    Those sweet words he spoke now revealing the truth
    His heart remains with me, sweet love of my youth

  233. Hi Lisa,

    I’ve been busy visiting with friends or I would have responded sooner. Unfortunately, I am unemployed so that idea is a bit more than I could afford at this time. It is a lovely idea and I am sure there are many fans who would love to be a part of that…Sad to say, there are probably as many skeptics. I am sure if you had more time to organize it wouldn’t be such a headache finding enough people to participate. Don’t let the negative comments get ya down. Honestly there have been so many scams run via the internet I can understand why some would be a bit distrusting. Don’t take it personal and never mind those who cannot respond with an honest, yet positive, yes or no. As I am sure we have all seen, some people get their kicks ruffling feathers with unkind comments. Especially if they are attention seeking. Anyway, I just popped in to say hello to everyone and see what’s new. I hope you are all in good spirits and enjoying the day… Keep me updated ladies!

    • Very well said, Love! Lisa, we all know you mean well. Don’t worry about others who have nothing better to do than to sabotage good intentions – just keep on doing what you do! :-))

  234. I have been receiving a few more emails regarding the Steve Perry V-Day ad that are very supportive after my concession. I am so confused! So it may or may not be back on depending on the numbers and the time frame in which we have left. I do need a positive count from here as to how many are interested in joining in. If I do not have at least 14 people interested I will not continue with this plan at this time. If you ARE IN, please let me know now. I have to have a positive head count. I feel the easiest way is to go through my paypal acct and I will pay the paper once I have the full amount including my $102. If I do not reach the full amount I will return any monies transferred and call it a squash. Only those seriously interested need respond. I really have to get a handle on this if it is to happen in time. I know, I am just as confused as you are. Please bear with me while I get a handle on this craziness.

  235. I just got done giving hell on my other groups for all the negativity about the ad in the paper for V-day. I am fired up. I have never seen such an altruistic deed turned into something that seems so devious to some. It really was starting to get to me. Someone even accused me of being a Steve Perry imposter? WTF??? No faith in people anymore. A lot of the ladies are all for it and are backing me up, but some…I guess they haven’t been on the board very long and don’t know who I am, I guess, but, jeeez, it was completely voluntary. I really think some of the emails of suspicion were completely unnecessary! Anyway, thanks for hearing me vent.

  236. I know…it’s damn funny! You should hear the one on YouTube with someone throwing a bottle at NS’s head…think it was at the Seattle Center!

    The guys up in the control booth were S**Ting bricks thinking he was going to walk off the stage!

    I was howling listening to Steve give them hell!

    Debs 🙂

    • Hey Debs,
      Yeah, that was on Frontiers and Beyond, but it was beeped out. I love this one because you can hear the anger, passion and words. Hee hee- LOOOVE that man!

  237. This is so great! Our normally calm and serene Steve busting loose on someone who through a bottle at his face. He mentions at the end that he’ll have a toothache in the morning thanks to that guy. I believe, if I heard correctly, that he had the guy kicked out, obviously. If I were Steve I would have had security hold him backstage so I could beat the crap out of him when I was done with the show! Gotta love that Portuguese Passion!!!

  238. Lora sometimes posts on one of my other groups and when she responded to something I had said/asked I got her email from that.

    • Lisa, I did email Lora asking if we could send Steve our love for Valentine’s day. I hope she can do something for us.

      • Hi Marylou, Great to hear. I think that the more of us that do write that she’ll see a greater need for this. Way to go.

  239. I just sent the following letter off to Lora and Cyndy….
    Lora and Cyndy,
    Hi ladies. Hope all is well with you two. A few of us were wondering if it were possible to have Fan Asylum put up and opportunity (say 3-5 days) for fans to wish Steve Perry a Happy Valentine’s Day and send him our love and good wishes. I tried to orchestrate putting a 1/2 page ad in his newspaper, but due to a tight economy and lack of trust that he would even see it I could not pool together enough people to make it economically sound for everyone. If you ladies would be so kind and have it in your power to do this for us we would be ever so grateful. There are so many people who would like to let Steve know how we feel about him and not many, if any, ways to get our thoughts to him as, well you know, he is not the most accessible person out there.
    Thanks for your time and effort. Have a great week.

    We’ll see what happens.

    • Thanks Lisa! you’re quick! How were you able to contact them, I did not see an email address on their website. I won’t call them now, will wait to see if they answer your letter.

    • Hi Lisa and Everyone,

      Lisa, I think that would be a wonderful if they would do that for us, especially since Steve has confirmed that there will be a CD coming.

      I would love to be able to say Thank you and we love you.

  240. Do you think Fan Asylum would open up a link for valentines messages to Steve? After all, they are about ‘connecting the fans to the artists’. I got their phone number from their website and I can call them on Monday to ask. I’m thinking they could give his fans a 5-day window for submitting short and sweet valentines day messages to Steve. Please let me know what you think before I talk with them, or, if you prefer, you can talk to them.

    • Blue,
      That’s a good idea and is worth a try. Steve does not employ fan asylum as his fan club, Lora and Cyndy are his friends from when they ran Journey Force fan club which is why they let him communicate from time to time through Fan Asylum. But it would definitely be worth trying. I also have Lora’s email. Maybe if we all contact them it might make a difference. Only one way to find out.
      lora@fanasylum.com. She is good about responding. I would assume Cyndy’s email would be…
      cyndy@fanasylum.com

  241. Hey girls, Hope everyone is having a great Sunday! Looks like it’s back to the drawing board. The ad in Steve’s newspaper will not be happening due to lack of interest. Some were concerned about sending money to a faceless stranger, some were concerned whether he would even see it ans a couple had to back out due to lack of funds. It was a nice try, but no cigar. Oh, well.

    • Oh Lisa,
      I truly wish I could have participated, but I simply cannot with the amount of money I spend for doctors and medication. If I was working and well, I would have done it in a heart beat.

      Thank you so much for trying.

      • I totally understand Marylou. If I were rich I would go ahead and do it myself. I completely understand money is tight for everyone. We’ll just have to get creative. We’ll just have to keep thinking of something we can do. Hope you are feeling well today.

  242. Thanks so much for the link Amy! I listened to it and did he say he loves snow? Well I’m now snowbound in this greater D.C. area and could use some help shoveling out.

    Anyway, here’s a link to what he talked about in another interview with Dave Campbell:

    http://www.fortheloveofsteveperry.com Click on Site Updates and read below Feb 5

    Here it is stated that he said “he was trying to figure out if he wants to record again”

  243. Hi everyone,

    I agree with you Marylou, It was so great to hear him laughing as he did…Just as I am writing this, the song “Lights” came on the radio. Funniest part about that is that I had just put in the Steve Perry’s greatest hit’s CD into the audio player of my computer…Now, that’s what I call the magic of radio! It seems as if every time I think Steve Perry, The radio plays one of his songs. Strange but true…If I had a buck for each time that has happened to me I’d be filthy rich! Any way, it was truly great hearing him in that last interview…My hope is renewed concerning his future recording plans. Hope you ladies have a lovely weekend!

    • I cannot tell you how happy I am that Steve finally has confirmed he will be going into the studio and recording.

      He has been saying this for quite some time now, and I wondered if I would live to hear it. I know I will NOW, nothing will stop me.

      I wish he knew how he helped save my life. It is amazing. Love to all you Perry gals.

  244. He finally SAID IT. FINALLY ! And did anyone notice the difference in his demeanor?? He sounded so much happier in this interview??

    FINALLY !!

  245. Thank you Amy!

    That was awesome and I am so excited to hear the happiness in his voice… It sounds as if he is finally understanding just how much he has been missed! It’s hard to imagine that Steve himself would not realize what an impact he has made in the lives of sooooooo may…
    I will love that man until the end of time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a man, what a man!

  246. Oh by the way, does anyone know where we can hear the full Scottish radio interview?

  247. Oh my gosh!! This IS exciting news!! But like Amy said, I wonder too why Steve didn’t say this in the UK interview, especially when Nicky pretty much asked him that question. Oh well – anywho, I hope he releases something sooner rather than later! :-))

  248. sorry I meant $102+

    • This is a clip from a Scottish radio stations interview that was apparently recorded the same day as the Planet Rock one in the UK was done live. BUT, unlike the other one, he actually says he has been “writing music for some solo stuff that I will be recording soon.”
      Wonder why he didn’t say it like that before?? http://www.westsound.co.uk/article.asp?id=1687647

      • Amy,
        Thank you! Thank You! That was awesome. He finally said it! He will be recording soon. Woohooo!

  249. Great AJ. I will count you in as thus so far. I will not be continuing with this project unless I hear absolute involvement from at least 14 people to keep this cost efficient for everyone. I still need absolute confirmation and commitment from everyone here. I have 4 so far from my other groups. But I do need to here that those of you on here are on board with the $102 each if we were to reach 14 ppl. I do have to let Lisa know soon to get this in in time. So girls if you are on board please give me your absolute thumbs up and I will figure out the paypal transfer situation as everyone else is comfortable with that arrangement. Once I get the total amount including my $100 we will proceed.

  250. I don’t see that anywhere. I’ll keep looking. I’m checking out youtube as well in case anyone puts it up on there. Dave Campbell was the one who interviewed earlier, but can’t find it in the archives yet.

  251. If you go to itunes, assuming you have it downloaded, and click radio then click genre it will take you to the radio stations. Did it say what the station was called?

    • ..no.. I just typed in the tweet exactly how it was worded. Does “DJ” playlist mean anything? I don’t have an iPod and I’ve never used iTunes.

  252. Dont have a clue as I have a iPod and iTunes playlist is on our iPods!

    Great…that sentence didnt make sense to anyone but me! UGH!

    I checked out that site but didnt find anything…ANYONE ELSE TRY IT YET??

    Debs 🙂

  253. …and another tweet 45 mins ago that says:

    AND WE HAVE STEVE PERRY MAKING AN APPEARANCE ON THE ITUNES DJ PLAYLIST. STEEEEVE PERRY!

    http://www.jasonnassi.com

    Could be the other SP and I don’t know what itunes playlist is.

  254. I looked at the archive articles and did not find the SP talk. Really sorry I was late in telling you about it but I only sign in to Twitter once or twice a day.

    About going to Calif., I’ve never been out West but have been invited to a wedding in Santa Cruz Aug 1. I’m thinking of renting a van or RV so that I and other kin can take a drive along the Pacific coast, visiting all the popular places including San Diego!

    • No problem, Blue. They may have it in the archives in a couple of days. Or hopefully someone will put it on youtube or mp3 like they did planet rock. As for coming out here, you’ll love it. Santa Cruz beach was actually my beach when I was growing up. The water is cold but the sun is warm. I do hope you get to make it to San Diego.

  255. Please let me know for sure if you are in on this as we have to move kinda fast Vday is just 9 days away. I will need your full names and we will have to arrange how this is going to get paid for. I will give you my email again to keep things private. I am going to see if my other groups are interested.

  256. Dave Campbell is on now. The tweet said the talk would be in the afternoon so that would have passed East Coast time. It’s noon here so it would be 5pm in England. I’m staying tuned through the next hour. No mention of SP so far, but they are playing really good oldies.

  257. If we can get 14 people together it would only be $100/pp.

  258. Ok I just sent an email off to the station asking if there was a way for them to post an mp3 online so that the rest of the world can hear the interview. I asked them to email me the link if this is in fact possible to do.
    On another subject… I just heard back from the San Diego Tribune. Once I told the lady I spoke with (her name is Lisa, too) She couldn’t stop saying how awesome the idea was and how cute we all were for doing that. She was extremely excited and said they would love to have a valentine’s day message to Steve in the paper. She didn’t even know Steve lived there. She is going to email me all the info. An all county full page add runs $22,000. I know, that’s a car, right? She was so good working with me because she was so excited she kept trying to find discounts and cheaper ways for me. So for just the Del Mar and surrounding areas (coastal) full page is $2,322. For 1/2 page (coastal) is $1,430. If we want color we have to add 40% to that. She wants me to keep her posted on this. Like I said she would love to have this in the paper and is very excited, so much that she gave me her cell phone # just to keep her informed!

  259. Also, we could all listen to Planet Rock from here in the U.S. so why would this Magic station be any different?

    • Thanks again blue. I found the station. Apparently there are two UK stations called magic. Just different station numbers. Unfortch the player is not working for me for some reason.

      • Lisa, I really should have posted the web link to the station when I mentioned the tweet, but I was waiting for the actual link to the conversation first.

        Someone else tweeted an hour ago that the conversation was ‘on now’, so I guess we all missed it live.

  260. Lisa, I didn’t get that message. I’m listening to the station at this moment and they are playing “who’s crying now”.

    I also sent an email to the radio guy asking if he could provide a link because I think the conversation is over with.

    Here’s the website:
    http://www.thenickwrightshow.com

    I just clicked on the Listen link, then clicked on the Media Player button.

    Will let you know if I get either a Twitter or Email reply.

  261. Lisa,

    Can I post that on some of the other sites I’m on to alert some of the other’s that should be able to listen and maybe record it so that we can hear the interview??

    Dont want to step on anyones toes!

    Debs 🙂

    • Debs, You are absolutely not stepping on any toes here. Share, share away. Just not the info I gave as it is wrong. The link Blue posted is the correct one.

  262. I hate the be the bearer of bad news, especially when it comes to our man speaking…but, I found the station’s website and clicked listen now and I got this message…

    Bad news I’m afraid
    Licencing restrictions require that Magic’s myPlayer is only available to UK based listeners. Magic uses a system to determine your geographic location via your IP address to make the decision.
    Multi-national corporations and internet service providers sometimes have their network configured in such a way that it makes it appear to the Magic’s myPlayer that you are trying to listen from another country.
    If you are in the UK, please ask your IT department if you’re able to use a UK based proxy for internet access.
    Check out http://www.magic.co.uk

    Maybe we could email the station and ask them to post an mp3 somewhere online after the interview so that the US can hear it.

  263. OH HELL YEAH BLUE!!!

    Keep us updated if you hear anything!

    Great detective work!!! 🙂

    Debs 🙂

  264. Recent tweet from a radio guy in England:

    STEVE PERRY OF JOURNEY ON MAGIC THIS AFTERNOON TALKING TO DAVE CAMPBELL

    I tweeted him back asking for the link to the conversation and will let you know, hopefully soon.

    • Blue,
      I hope you get a reply. I would love to hear the conversation. I did find magic.co.uk but the home page said the conversation was 3 hours ago. I wish we had known it earlier.
      Thanks

  265. Hi ladies and Hello Marylou,

    I too have experienced many personal losses due to cancer. Grandfather, Uncle, Aunt, Cousin and a dear friend as well… My sister whom has so far beaten the odds is doing well, I also have an Uncle who is very close to me that has been told he has only a few months left. Just as you ladies were saying, Steve Perry has awakened me to understanding the hope that love brings, whether it be family or that someone special who’s love lives within us, lending us the strength to carry on even through our darkest moments. His voice has touched our souls in places that to us seemed way out of reach and brought back the love that was already there, we simply forgot how to find it again. Marylou, I am very happy to hear that he has touched you in ways beyond understanding. I do believe this man is a gift from above and that his voice has healed in more ways than one could ever imagine…Love is a very powerful weapon, when used properly, it can channel the energy of the almighty himself, if the almighty himself finds it necessary. I also believe the reason we are all here is to provide living proof to one another, that there is a reason for everything, everyone, and every season… Love takes time, but when it arrives baby, lookout! I am sure that having been through your personal battle, you of all people understand that. Anyway, I just popped in to see if there were any new developments when I was touched by your story about how Steve Had made a difference in your life. It seems he has touched so very many in so many different ways. I too am grateful for the love I found through listening to his soft spoken, yet powerful lyrics. Only he delivers those lyrics in the way they were meant to be presented. I hope all you ladies have a gorgeous day filled with love, happiness and of course, Steve Perry’s music!

  266. Hi marylou you are so welcome, Im going to CA, in May with my hubby, sisters, and brothers, and their families. Hubby has never been there so he wants to go. I lived there so I want to go to find perry if possible. I watch journeys greatest hits dvd just about everyday and drive hubby and my older daughter up the wall. I say too damn bad! Well its late goodniight. I hope perry comes out with his new cd before journey comes out with theres in April. Something is cooking on the perry front!!!

  267. I found this from Lora from Fan Asylum in the Melodic forums…
    “He did several phoners today with UK media. The others were recorded to be broadcast later on various stations. I believe they were all short – the Planet Rock phoner was the longest. I’m not sure on which stations or when the other interviews will show up but if we get any further info, we will post it.”

  268. I may be late responding to this one but some of you earlier on were asking about the Steve Perry pages in Facebook. After doing an SP search in Facebook, three groups first appear that have the most members. I joined these three Fan Clubs but you won’t find me because my name here is made up. Some of the SP Facebook discussions are interesting, one in particular really shocked me, it’s found in the club with the 5,000 members and it’s a newer topic. Really can’t talk about it here.

    There are also over 2,000 people on Facebook with the SP name. I read somewhere that SP (believed to be an imposter) is on Facebook so be my guest if you want to click thru 2,000 SPs!

  269. Hi mary, You sound like a person with a strong spirit and a strong will to heal, God bless you.! I have had loves ones who have survived because of their will and their love for life. I have had loved ones who passed away because they were just to tired and felt they had no will to live. Perry can help us through anything just with his beautiful ,heartfelt vocals, and his god giving gift of writing breath-taking lyrics. If anybody can brink a smile to your face or give you a lump in your throat its Perry. Thankyou Blue so much for the links, and Lisa girl Im going to CA. in May and Del Mar north of San Dieo is where I will be stalking Perry for sure. Hey girls maybe I will even bring him home with me, HUBBY WILL LOVE THAT!Lisa like I said Im in with the Perrytine day!!!

    • Hi Cutlets,
      Thanks so much for your kind words. They are appreciated. Yep, you are right, I am a fighter especially after my grim prognosis. For quite a while I could not do much except listen to music or be online, and most of that was You tube. Steve and his music along with Journey and their music gave me the will to beat the odds.

      Steve will never know how much listening to the music and watching you tube helped me. I also have the DVDs, and actually found a few months ago through Amazon.com a DVD of the Frontiers and Beyond Tour. OH WOW what a find.

      Say if you gals are getting together to go to CA sometime, PLEASE let me know. As long as I am doing as well as I am now, I would go in a heartbeat.
      Thanks again

  270. Hey girls…
    I just placed a call to the San Diego Union Tribune inquiring about the cost of a full page ad just in case this is the way we want to go with our valentine’s message to Steve. Of course, cost, I’m sure will dictate whether or not that is even a possibility.
    Oh, yeah…also I will be going to San Diego in March and will definitely bring my Perry goggles with me.

    • Where in San Diego will you be? Take a short trip, as close as 10 minutes away depending on where you will be staying, to Del Mar, find a nice bench to sit on and WATCH closely to who walks on the beach almost every morning (wearing big, dark sunglasses of course, unless it’s cloudy). My husband travels to San Diego a few times each year and I accompany him each and every time (I wonder why, especially since I absolutely hate the 5 1/2 hour plane ride). I have been there about 7 times in the last 3 years and I can tell you that I haven’t been disappointed too many times. A great way to start off my day!! He (SP) is very comfortable in his own community where he is just another resident to all, no one special as he has lived there for many many years now and everyone has accepted him as one of them. ( a good friend of mine has a good friend who lives in Del Mar) Just being able to see him with my own eyes is all that I have ever needed. I have never approached him, because, honestly, I would probably make a fool of myself with all the babbling that would come out of my mouth. Besides, I am a really quiet, shy type of person, but figured that I would help out a fellow admirer. I will be going back this spring with my hubby, who by the way knows where I go every morning and thinks I am crazy, but loves me anyway!!

      Good Luck!!

      • Hi fellow Lisa and Perry Lover,
        It’s nice to meet you. Thank you so much for the info. I will be staying at the Hotel Del Coronado, I am not sure how close or far that is from Del Mar. I’ll have to map it. Your husband sounds very loving and understanding. Not many husbands would understand our love for another man. I often think to myself, If I ever met Steve what exactly would I say without sounding like the loon I am. LOL. Especially while in his comfort zone. I, may be ok just watching/stalking him, lol but, then again I may kick myself all the way home and for the rest of my life for not saying what he means to me as it could be the one and only chance I get. Is he on a private beach or is it public?

    • Hi Lisa, It’s a great name, isn’t it? Nice to meet you too. I was up front with my hubby while we were dating in the 80’s and he knew how it was then and I explained to him that things probably wouldn’t change. What I think he didn’t realize back then is that it would still be a very important part of my life now, 24 years later!! I try to explain that when someone has made a huge impact on your life, they become part of your life forever. My children, all boys, have gown up listening to Journey and SP since they were in the womb and are now listening on their own! I have 2 college age sons who are my concert buddies and have offered to come with me if SP ever tours again. When I heard that there was a possibility that SP was in NYC, the oldest one even offered to drive me there!
      Where you will be stayiny in SD is south of Del Mar. Let’s use the airport as a center spot. Del Mar is 20 minutes north of the airport and your hotel, I am pretty sure is about 20 minutes south. My husband said that he stayed there once before I started going with him. Sort of on its own little beach if we are talking about the same hotel. Not to worry, go for a day trip, it’s a beautiful town, lots to walk around and see. There are alot of really nice little cafe type places to eat. My favorite is called the Crepes and Corks Cafe(?), great coffee and bakery items!! Nice open air type markets too.
      The beach that I usually go for my strolls on is a public beach as I wouldn’t have access to any private ones. It is right down from a little motel that is right on the beach in Del Mar, I can’t remember the name, something like Del Mar Beach Motel on the beach?? It’s located on Del Mar City Beach I think. Another beach is called Del Mar Beach, just a bit north I think, but you can just keep walking and get to it.
      Anyhow, hopefully if my and SP’s path ever cross again someday, hopefully I can muster up enough courage to say “Hi” at least!!
      Take care.

  271. Well, it’s obvious to me that since DSB is on the top 10 charts again in the UK, and that Sony is now releasing a 3 album extravaganza, that our Steve is NOT going to say anything about an album he may be releasing.

    I hope he does compile some of his works and release a new cd. I don’t even care if he tours. I’d love it if he did, but what frustrates me more than anything is that there is no way to send him fan mail that I know of.

    I have never been one to write to anyone famous, but I loved Steve’s and Journey’s music since DAY ONE.

    Three years ago, I was diagnosed with cancer. Not a very good prognosis, however, I am a very strong ITALIAN who doesn’t read statistics, and fought to live.

    I had a lot of downtime where I could not do much except listen to music and watch youtube, and see my most favorite singer of all times. I even found clips and finally found the CD of a concert I attended in 1983 in Philadelphia. It was wonderful, wonderful memories.

    Steve talks about some of the songs helping him over some rough times. I wish he knew how much his music helped ME over the rough times. I am still in treatment, and I will probably be in treatment for the rest of my life. Being able to enjoy the music Steve created, and watch youtube is a delight. I wish he knew how much he helped me CHOOSE to live.

    • Marylou…I hear where you are coming from. It frustrates me, too that there is no way to contact Steve and let him know what he has meant to each of us throughout so many years and the strength he has given us to get through whatever trauma or frightening endeavor that each of us may have had and/or have to get through.
      I am very sorry you are having to go through what you are going through. Cancer has touched my life tremendously (not physically-knock on wood). I have lost my mother, my grandfather, my uncle and my most favorite dog ever to it. I am happy to hear you are still fighting. I think he doesn’t let fan mail through because it would be too much for him to handle right now. He still hasn’t done anything or had anybody do anything with his website yet. I take solace in the fact that Steve has friends out there reading and participating in groups and forums that are about him and let’s him know what’s being said. I do miss the old Journey Force ways of doing things, though. You could write a letter and they actually get them and respond. Fan Asylum isn’t passing anything onto him at this time. I do think that if Steve heard/read first-hand how much he is cared for and missed and that we don’t care if he doesn’t sing like he did when he was 20, 30, 40… whatever, that that would give him the confidence he may be lacking, if in fact he is lacking in that area at all.

      • Hi Lisa,
        Thank you for your kind remarks. It has been a difficult 3 years, but as I said I am in treatment and continue to do well after being given a grim prognosis.

        I hope that I will get to hear another interview and live to see another CD or whatever Steve wants to throw out there.

        There was something I did notice when I saw the picture of Steve backstage of the U2 set last year. Steve’s expression was ………..for lack of a better word, not feeling well. I hope that he does not have any other physical problems.

        We fans do not realize that Steve, the love of our lives, may very well get up in the morning aching with arthritis just as some of us do. I know I do. As he said, “the body doesn’t move the way it used to.”

        If Steve does nothing else, I wish he would give more interviews. I’d love to see him on Oprah, just to chat. Perhaps he feels that we expect much more than he can give now. As he said, he is his own worst critic. I understand that. Hopefully, he does have friends that check the boards and see what is being said about him. We Perry gals are ………..FOREVER.
        Thanks Again

    • Marylou, thank you for your post. I know there will be a cure for all cancers one day. Cancer hasn’t touched me yet but has to my mother who lived more than 10 yrs after being diagnosed and that was long ago.

      I wish, too, that there was a way to let Steve Perry know how much he means to us all.

      I thought he had set up his own Twitter account to allow his fans to contact him, but this is questionable now and Fan Asylum has been notified. ( I’m now just watching to see when the account is deleted.)

      • Blue,
        Thank you for your kind words. After 3 years, I have beaten the odds so far, and will keep working on it.

        I need to hold out to see if I will be able to add one more CD to my collection.

        Geezz, I still have my Frontiers Decal in a frame in my computer room.

        Steve will never know how much his music has helped me live. I hope one day he can fill that hole he has in his chest. If he does do another CD, I think they are already sold 🙂

  272. For those of you that may have missed the interview or just want to hear it again it is on youtube and also here (without the songs)
    [audio src="http://www.hullrockers.co.uk/forummusic/steveperry.mp3" /]

  273. Sorry I meant Blue not blur can you please post the link on here to Melodic Rock so I can read what these girls are saying? Because I dont understand what it all means that you are saying!!! thanks girlie girl!!!

  274. Hi guys, I hear you there Lisa my hubby is Irish and German, I am a mutt but mostly Italian! Blur can you please put the link on here so I can get to Melodic Rock and read whats being said? Thanks! love,your a trip girl and keep up with your joyfull sense of humor and lovely writing, Deb, your just plain nuts!lol A friend of mine on the you-tube music sites said, She feels this is all PR and there just to many things over the year to confirm a new cd with out any denial from Perry.I asked her to post it on here because she made a list of things over the year and it makes so much sense. I get on here when somebody post and it goes back to mt E-mail or I have no clue how to get on here.so what should I tell her to goole in so she can fine this blog? Sorry but I am very clueless with all this!!! I dont care what anybody thinks Perry will be coming out with a cd and touring again its in his blood!!!

  275. On a more serious note, Steve Perry nails every one of them! Steve Perry is above all sincere. I have heard people referring to him to being such an @$$ when it comes to speaking about his time with Journey…Funny, what I heard come out of “his mouth” was how “he felt” about the time spent with them.. Since when did it become a crime to be sincere about how you feel??? If that’s what they call an @$$, then I guess I fall into that category as well. LOL Oh well, as I said before, Steve’s True Fans know! As we all know, one has to be sincere about who they are to produce the magic that Steve Perry has. He didn’t require the expensive light shows and vo-coders some people can’t seem to record without as they are simple no talents with big bucks backing them up. If you really know anything about music and vocals, then you know a great voice when you hear it. In the case of Steve Perry fans, it’s not a simple matter of taste, it is the quality of perfect pitch, combined with that soulful explosion of emotions which were well thought out before presenting to the listeners. Steve Perry is Grace, Style, and Sincerity, and wow, let’s not forget the face of this package! Wow what a gift from heaven when Steve Perry landed on this planet…Speaking of rumor’s I hear he is an alien who doesn’t really live on the planet, he only visits from time to time, Oh yea, I also heard another rumor that he was born standing up with a mic in his hands as he sang “Open Arms” to his dear sweet mother…LOL Wonder which it could be??? Just goofin’ guys, I know you didn’t take that seriously…I just thought it to be amusing after all the rumors we do hear about him. It must be tough to be simply human once you become famous. Steve Perry is an amazing man, but after all he is a man who likes his privacy and will speak out as the need arises. In the meantime we all have a life, don’t we? Unfortunately for some, their life is all about spreading confusion and dismay amongst the planet! Oh well, what’s a Perry Girl to do??? Listen to more of Steve Perry’s Greatest Hit’s, that’s what I say!!!

    • LMAO Love…you are in rare form today! Love the rumors you came up with. Did you hear the one where he is just a digital recording and hologram? lol Just kidding. Hope you girls are having a great day.

  276. Hi Lisa, Cutlets, Debs, Blue and Uh, AJ and Umm, Kel, and oh yea, nuKnuK? That’s a good one by the way, Any way the list has been growing so forgive me is I just post Hello Perry Peepers. I was just thinking how funny this all looks when the rumors begin flying around, even the ones that turn out to be true…We truly tend to get wound up in this at times. LOL Oh well, it is after all in support of our dear one Steve Perry and is all with good intention so, where’s the harm in that? Ya, gotta admit though, the rumors do get funny at times. Not just on this page but everywhere you read about him, Heck some of these kids don’t know “The Voice” Steve Perry from any of the other Steve Perry’s out there, which by the way most of them came only after our Sweetie.
    There’s The Star Wars Guy, The Cherry Bombed guy, just a bit of humor there, The country singer guy, oh yea and that columnist guy too there’s a Dr, guy A whole bunch of guys named Steve Perry. Many Steve Perry’s but none matching the popularity exception of the Famous Author. And by the way I must add, the other musicians using that name pale in comparison to “The Original”, “The One And Only” “Steamin’ Steven” O.K. so I made that up, how about “The White Raven”? Nah! Umm, Umm, How about we don’t need a nickname as when WE say “Steve Perry”, WE know who the heck we were discussing in the first place! LOL, Just trying to make ya laugh..

    As we’ve all seen how rumors fly
    Especially concerning our favorite guy
    Is he married?, is he not?
    Is he dead?, Or, Is his girlfriend’s name Scott? WHAT!!!

    Now tell me how silly can someone be
    To as such crazy things as these
    As far as Perry fans are concerned
    Privacy is something the man has earned

    If one were to tell you, go drink from a ditch
    And you will marry the richest prince
    Would you believe them, Oh No, Indeed!
    Cause we’re all Steven’s Girls you see

    We all have seen how rumors fade
    When truth steps in to clear it’s name
    So “Thank You Steve Perry” for speaking once more
    Renewing the hope, settling the score

    However Steve plans to live out his days
    Are only decisions, of which he will make
    As everyone knows it starts with a dream
    And where those dreams take you aren’t always foreseen

    Steve sacrificed many years of privacy in order to share his “Message Of Love” with us all and for this his fans will always be grateful. It is of pure selfishness that we continue to BEG! PLEEEEESE, Come Back Steve Perry! Hell, if any of us thought it would make a difference, we’d be on our knees begging him to marry us! LOL, Now that’s a good one! Anyway, as I was saying, about being grateful for what he has given us, The treasures he left behind will last us a lifetime…Even if he never sings again I will love the man with all due respect, till the end of time! I know I’ve said it before but, What A Man, What A Man, What A Man, What a Mighty Good Man!

    • Love,…. PERFECT!! That poem gave me such a chuckle. I totally agree with what you said about he has earned his privacy. Here we are, not famous, haven’t done anything (at least to my knowledge) that has affected millions of people around the world and given up half of our lives thus far to do it and yet we already have our privacy, earned or not. I just think, in a way, that Steve is some sort of drug for us. We are addicted and can’t get enough. We are always looking for that next fix. He has gotten into our veins and heart and will always remain there. As I have said before, Steve is more than entertainment value for us “loons”, we love everything about this man, his sincerity, heart, generosity, personality, humor, voice, beauty (inside and out) and soul. It’s the recipe for the perfect soul-mate/lover. And like any lover, you just want to know how they’re doing, what they’re feeling, what they are up to. It’s like being in love with someone you have no contact with, but always hoping to hear from someone or somewhere what’s going on with them. I, like you, will always be grateful for what he has given us. He didn’t have to share himself with the world in the first place, but I am ever so thankful he did. I thank God for him everyday. I hope I made sense here, sometimes I get so baffled over the perfection that he is in every way that my thoughts get muddled. LOL

  277. Just been reading all the comments left after The Interview. Hope you’re all looking at the MelodicRock posts. I can see now what’s been happening regarding rumors, mostly from the comments made from the Fan Asylum gals and a few others.

  278. Cohen,
    If you really feel that way, then maybe, your butt should go support someone else! It was good just hearing from Steve Perry after all this time and I for one am pretty much satisfied with or without a new CD, It is great to know he is alive, well and still feeling the desire to sing again!!!

    • Woah settle down!!!! That’s the problem with some people, they cannot stand to have anyone say anything that they might not agree with without becoming aggressive! Look, I’m a huge Perry fan and NEVER go a single day without listening to him or watching one of my 12 (!!!!) dvd’s of him/journey. NO-ONE would love to have a new CD from S.P. more than me. But I am entitled to have my own opinion and that is that for YEARS Steve has been saying he’s ‘working on something’ ‘might record’ ‘looking at touring’ etc etc. So Anonymous (how about having the guts to use your real name) take a deep breath and relax.

  279. I don’t think I can take any more teasers about ‘working on material’. I love S.P but I’m pretty much over waiting for him to come up with the goods. Too many ifs, buts and maybe’s.

  280. Lisa, I was just talking to a friend and she said the same thing as you. I do feel this way myself! Steve would never lead his fans on like this with all these rumors flying around for a year. Why write music for two years to leave on a shelf, and he does have that craving to be back out there. Hi AJ, iknow its perrys life and he needs to be happy but I feel hes not1 I feel he wants to be back out there but has self doubt weather he will fail ot make it again. He has all these songs done and how long would it take for him to put a cd together not long at all!!! Ok Im feeling better! Sorry guys but Im Italian from Ny with a temper when Im pissed . Im feeling better now!!!LOL

    • Not a problem Cuts…we are here for you. I’m Irish, German and Hungarian…if that isn’t a recipe for a temper then I’m afraid to know what is. I think we are all a little worked up over this because his interviews and information releases are very few and far between. So everytime he comes out to speak we are all hoping for this one little piece of information we just aren’t getting. A classic dangling carrot just out of reach.
      Love…please insert poem here to make us feel better.

  281. Way too many unanswered question! I want More!
    Love to hear he is well and still sexy sounding!
    Wish Nicky would have asked some of the questions we posted on his sight.

  282. Hi Deb, my peep, Sorry about that my head is in a cloud1 Let us know what Nicky says about the songs! Hi Lisa, I lost my head and I feel better it would just be a one time thing! Im just sad because he writes these songs and Im thinking they are on a new cd already. Maybe hes not telling us everything either because he cant right now. Im in with that Valentine thing just let me know!!!

    • A.J. You poor thing, go take a break outside, find somewhere secluded and just SSSCCCCRRRREEEEAAAAMMM!
      Cutlets, I think we are all a bit disoriented right now. Hee hee. I am giddy. I can’t help be feel he is being secretive and withholding information about the impending CD. There is just to much info and talk about it for him not to shut down these rumors outright (ie. the Hawaii and internet rumors). The fact that he hasn’t shut down the rumor mill only leads me to believe he’s holding out. Maybe, and this is just speculation and hopeful thinking, his record company is planning some huge press release with multiple interviews and until then he can’t say anything. Maybe he said he wasn’t in the studio working because he no longer is at this point and he’s going to come out with a big bang. This is my reasoning…it keeps me from a total nervous breakdown. And why the talk of other interviews in the US??? What’s that about? Could it all be coming to a head or are those interviews about the same compilation album? So many unanswered questions.

  283. Just looked up on Amazon.com.uk site and the album that has been released in the UK has this on the cover:

    3 Original Album Classics

    The albums on it are Departure, Escape and Frontiers.

    Debs 🙂

    • Hi deb, I have to order those three albums today and the TBF one too. well hubbys telling me to move in with Steve[god how i wish] so I better go now!!!TTYl guys!!1lol

  284. I don’t know about the rest of you but this interview has been more excitement than I have felt so far this year…Hopefully a sign of good things yet to come! Anyway, I hope you are all feeling as great as I am right now. This will hold me for now, I say we should all gear up to Send Him Our Love for Valentines Day! Maybe he’ll realize just how much he is missed if we all get together on this. In the meantime keep posting Ladies…Thanks again for all the latest, See ya soon!

    • lovemso, I am totally on board with the Valentine’s thing. We’ll have to put our heads together…hey I once read that a group of fans got together and bought a full page in his newspaper to wish him a happy birthday once…just a thought.
      Cutlets, Deb was the one that asked about the songs, I asked about info on other interviews. If/when I get a response I will definitely post it here.

    • Oh and I suppose I’ll come down from the ceiling eventually, but right now I am flying high!!! I can’t believe the amount of sex appeal that man exudes. It really should be illegal, but I am sure glad it’s not!

      • Lisa, I couldn’t have said that better myself!! I’m at work – so I have to control myself. But it definitely isn’t easy, ESPECIALLY while I was listening to the interview. I wanted to scream!! :-))

  285. I just emailed Nicky and also thanked him for the interview. I told him I love the music he plays and will continue to be a listener, that I loved the DJ idea, and asked if he had any info on the other supposed interviews Steve was supposed to be doing.

  286. Led Zeppelin my favorite! Perry is to big for that DJ shit right now. For God sakes the man wrote new songs for 2 years and that tells me hes missing the singing and performing. I think hes nervous and I think now that journeys back hes kinda nevous with that too. He will be great, and he brings his age in it and that is not a factor for him because he does not need to jump around just sing. I dont think you put your heart into wriiting songs for 2 years to become a DJ. Thats fine for later but too me doing music is in his heart right now!!! Lisa let us know what Nicky says about the new songs. I just wrote and told him it was nice to hear steve, and I hope he does something with the new songs he has written over the years!!!

  287. And that we are all for the DJ thing. That we would definitely listen to that.

  288. Cuts,

    I already did email Nicky thanking him for the interview and digging just a tad more about the songs that he has been writing! 🙂

    Debs 🙂

  289. I think we should email Planet Rock and let steve know we heard him today and his fans still care about him!!!

  290. Lisa, his new greatest hits cd that he released last Jan or the greatest hits from 78 TO 96?!!! SCREW THE DJ THING I WANT HIM ON STAGE OR RECORDING A NEW CD!!!

    • The one they just released in January.

      • Cutlets, Yes that is absolutely #1 priority-album and tour. But to hear him speak for a few hours would be the ice cream on the side.

    • Hey Cuts – Ha Ha Ha Ha!! Now, now!! It’s not all about what WE want – it’s about what Steve wants, remember? 😉 Even though we’d all be pretty excited over a new CD and a tour, I respect him for taking his own sweet time and doing things in his own way. He has never put out an album/CD just for the sole purpose of adhering to other people’s demands. So if being a DJ would make him happy, then I’m all for it! 🙂

  291. OK, was that beautiful or what!!???? It was awesome hearing Steve’s voice again. But just as Lisa mentioned earlier about Lora (from FA) referring to what he “DIDN’T” say, I guess it’s true that CD rumor was just that – only a rumor. However, I guess that can change at some point in the future. If Steve wants to perform again (to fill that “hole”), hopefully he will again soon. (And if he became a DJ, I would listen in to his show everyday!! ;-))

  292. Ouch! There has been a hole in my heart since you stopped recording Steve Perry! Please, please come back with a new CD, You don’t have to jump up and run around to sell your stuff! Age is not a factor, it’s what’s in your heart that counts. We all miss you Steve!

  293. oooooh! That would be awesome to hear Steve as a DJ!

  294. I don’t think he’d be working this hard on music and not share some of it with us.

  295. I guess feb,10th there will be no release of a new cd. How can he say hes has not been working in a studio when other artist have confirmed it and elliott yamin said he was working next door to him. I think hes coming back!!!

  296. Short and sweet.

  297. Hey just, I cant stop bouncing and hes gone. What do you think about a new cd!!!

  298. Tears of Joy!

  299. Who’s crying Now? I’m crying now.

  300. He’s so cute!

  301. He misses it oh god he misses us! COME BACK I WILL FIX THE HOLE BABY!!! YOUR YOUNG!!!HE HAS THE ITCH AGAIN!!!

  302. ok… everything’s ok now. deeeep breath!

  303. Please come back Steve!

  304. He’s so hottttt! Hes coming back I know he is! Dont be stupid let us enjoy it too!OMG i almost died!

  305. Whew! Thought we lost him…

  306. The radio just effin cut out on me!!!!!!!!!! ARRRG!

  307. Come on Steve, bring on some new stuff!

  308. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeea!

  309. Oh well, I still think he may!

  310. Damn, this is blasting on the speakers now! WAHOO!!!

    Cuts you still bouncing??

    ROFLMAO!

    Debs 🙂

  311. Nah na nah na nah nah!

  312. I don’t think I heard that. I think they were talking about the greatest hits cd going top ten in UK. But, dang I hope I missed that and you heard right.

  313. His Voice is tearing me apart!

  314. Did I hear that right???

  315. OH, yeah! Baby. The world’s sexiest song!!!

  316. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! A new CD!!!!

  317. YES! Steve, DON’T give up!!

  318. GOD! He sounds good!

  319. Hes in SanDieo not NY!!!

  321. YYYYYEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!

  322. See what happens when you “Don’t Stop Believing!”

  323. It’s ok I’m screaming, too!!! WWWWWWOOOOOHHHHOOOO.

  324. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Sorry I just couldn’t help screaming with excitment!!!

  325. OHHH I hope this is the cue in!!!

  326. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

  327. Planet rock website posted a new blurb about Steve coming on.
    Steve Perry On Planet Rock

    3rd February 2010

    Steve Perry should be talking to Nicky Horne tonight after 6pm.

    The former Journey frontman was originally supposed to speak to Nicky on Monday night but after a few technical hitches (we couldn’t find him) we were forced to call off the interview.

    However, it’s looking pretty good that Nicky will be speaking to Steve during his show, which starts at 6pm.

  328. Everything is crossed! lol

  329. Woohoo! Less than a half hour and we’ll find out! Fingers Crossed!!!

  330. Okay here we go…start saying your prayers.

  331. I’m here too. We are all together united by ONE MAN! Heard the exiting DJ announce that Nicky is coming up and “hopefully Steve Perry will be joining us.” I have a miniature Australian Shepherd and a Boston Terrier. Right now I am clearing away anything I might hurt myself on from jumping around. LOL. Also removing phone and any other distractions. I am Glued!!!

  332. Hey Cuts!!!

    Ponder this question if you will…WHAT OTHER INTERVIEWS IS SP SUPPOSE TO BE GIVING FROM NY TODAY??

    Everyone is go focused on the PR UK Interview…just saying!?

    Debs 🙂

    • yeah, he wouldn’t travel all the way to NY for just a phone conversation.

    • From what I understand they are supposed to be American interviews. I am praying that if this is so they are the start of press releases for new CD, but who knows. It CAN’T be more of DSB…can it??? I have searched the internet looking for advertisement for theses elusive interviews and can find nothing.

  333. 45 MINUTES AND COUNTING!!!

  334. Yeah, I’m on now too…it’s 1013 my time! 🙂

    My dogs are Miniature Pinschers! LOL

    Cuts….get the padded room ready! (VBG)

    Debs 🙂

  335. I’m listening now too (1pm east time) and I also have a hound dog!…but mine is mixed…

  336. Hi love, I hear you there! I put myself in a padded room, because as soon as perrys speak I will be bouncing off the walls and I really mean that! You have a hound dog? I have a hound dog too just the low to the ground kind with the long,long,ears,my basset hound! Anyway I am starting to sweat so I better get on the radio station now so I can prepare myself for a good long scream!!! Sorry neighbors but you know your loonie neighbor so well!!!

  337. Hey Ladies,
    Here I am, against the wall again…This way if I faint at the sound of his voice I don’t hurt myself too badly. LOL I am once again waiting and hoping today is the day we hear from him. I pray he will at least give a positive hint on when we might expect something new, if not, I will be just as happy to hear whatever he has to say. I hope the PR sight doesn’t suffer a meltdown from the heat Steve Perry’s projects…He is one Hot Man! O.K. so do I sound just a bit overexcited? Nah, no more than usual. Just like the rest of you, so happy to hear he is O.K. and anticipating the moment we hear his voice again. Later Perry Hounds…sniff, sniff, (Puppy Whining)…LOL

  338. Hi guys, Who cares what happen anymore, Im sure it will be all cleared up today anyway! Im just happy perrys fine and hes doing the interviw today. Hi blue yes it snowed in NY but just a dusting here on the Island!!! Ill be on at 1pm eastern time just to make sure CAUSE I DONT WANNA MISS A THING!!!

  339. Hi guys,

    Just wanted to make sure you understood, I was in no way implying that you people were trying to make something out of nothing. My intent was simply to remind that sometimes people make statements that are somewhat open ended in hope of creating a bit of drama. In other words as some of you were saying, to draw people to their websites ect… While looking over the past couple of days I realized that my last comment could be considered a bit open ended as well. It is as I said though, I was not referring to any of you on this site. Initially I felt panic as the rest of you, but that was quickly erased when I recalled all of the other rumors I have seen begin all because of one person making a public statement without defining exactly what they meant. Sometimes we tend to read way to much into what is actually said. LOL I just checked in for the latest and again, thanks for all the latest info about this interview. I will be listening for this as well. Whew! Honestly, I was more concerned that someone else who may have heard that statement, could have suffered a stroke or heart attack worrying about this, as we all know how much Steve Perry means to so many… If I were to find out something like that was true, it would absolutely be a nine-one-one for me. I am happy to hear it was all a misunderstanding though. I am so ready to hear his voice once again.
    Enjoy the interview! Let me know as soon as you hear…

  340. What did fanasylum have to say on Twitter??

    Has anyone seen it??

    Debs 🙂

    • The tweet from Fan Asylum says “Steve Perry chats with Planet Rock about the current success of Don’t Stop Believing in the UK live Wed 7pm GMT”

      I really don’t think they will be discussing anything else. If SP were to talk about a new CD, it would be to American media only.

  341. Fan Asylum sent out a tweet on Twitter about this interview, so now it looks like it will happen.

  342. Lisa, I saw that comment also on MelodicRock, the one about why Sony was mentioned. I was going to wait until after the interview to say anything further.

    I’m wondering if it snowed in NY overnight like it did here.

    It still puzzles me why the DJ made those statements about SP, not being able to get ahold of him, etc., when the replies to your emails said SP did contact the station prior to the interview to say he didn’t want to talk to the media anymore that day.

    • My guesses are either the DJ didn’t know Steve had contacted the station right before the interview was about to begin, which seems unlikely as they would have gotten a message to him or back to my first conclusion…Drama, Drama, Drama. He did get a frenzy going with those statements. He probably knows that all Steve’s fans have is speculation. He doesn’t put himself out there as we all know, so we just speculate. Much like I am doing now. Also I did see that Lora from FA mention Steve didn’t have any interviews scheduled for Monday and that they were scheduled for Wednesday. She said the radio station must have gotten the days mixed up. Steve didn’t have his phone on because he didn’t have a need to. Counting down…2 1/2 hours til interview. I will be listening from 10A (6P UK time) on just so I don’t miss a thing.

  343. Well this is interesting. I was on Melodicrock.com forum and found this little one liner from Steve’s friend Lora from Fan Asylum. Makes me think she knows something we don’t. Which is far more than possible.
    This part was written by someone else:
    Once again, Steve Perry causes EPIC drama by not doing or saying one damn thing. Now you see… that’s why he’s “Steve Motherfk’n Perry”. He doesn’t even have to get out of bed or utter a word and he can create meltdowns and havoc. :

    This was Lora’s response to that:
    I’m sure it will be equally as EPIC tomorrow when everyone starts analysizing what he didn’t say in the interview. Can’t wait.
    The word “didn’t” was italicized. Maybe we aren’t going to hear anything about the new album and it will just be about DSB…again. Oh, well just love hearing his voice anyway, even if I have heard what he has to say multiple times.
    Lora also made a comment about why Sony may have been involved with setting up the interviews…DSB belongs to the Sony catalog. Anywho…I am still holding faith that he will give us some sort of clue about the impending CD. He’s got to know by now that’s the burning question. Let’s not ignore the pink elephant anymore.
