"I left the band 31 F---ing years ago" - Steve Perry shuts down any form of Journey reunion

music news 09/10/2018

Steve Perry has revealed that he does not have any intentions of working with his ex-Journey band members again.

Perry was asked about his thoughts around Neal Schon's statement that the pair could collaborate on a new musical project that did not involve Journey in a new controversial interview with Rolling Stone.

“I’m not sure that’s possible without stirring up hopes of a reunion,” Perry indicates. “Please listen to me. I left the band 31 fucking years ago, my friend. You can still love someone, but not want to work with them. And if they only love you because they want to work with you, that doesn’t feel good to me.”

Perry claimed that he feels no bitterness towards any of his former bandmates. Neal Schon wants to reconcile with Perry, often stating that he'd love to collaborate with him again.

Rolling Stone reported that there was a look of disgust across Perry's face when discussing Jonathan Cain's new memoir, "Don't Stop Believin'". Perry dismisses it by saying, "I don’t really care to read Jonathan’s book and I’d appreciate if you didn’t tell me about it. I don’t need to know. It’s none of my business.”

Schon responded to the article with a series of tweets. You can see his response below.
