Neal Schon Hopes Steve Perry Will Join Journey For Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction
Despite never winning a single Grammy, Journey is going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017.
NEAL SCHON HOPES STEVE PERRY WILL JOIN JOURNEY
The band’s guitarist Neal Schon is hopeful that former singer Steve Perry will join the band on stage for their induction. “I’m hoping that Steve Perry will get up and do something with us,” Schon told Rolling Stone. “We’ll have to see. I don’t know because nobody has contact with him… I suppose we’ll hear something about it a day before or the day of, who knows.”
The last time Perry sang with the band was in 1991 at the Bill Graham tribute show. “I’ll keep my fingers crossed. We all love Steve,” Schon continued. “We had a great relationship for so many years. I don’t know why there’s been an absence of it for so many years besides the fact that we just moved on because we wanted to, we had to.”
Schon admits he doesn’t even have Perry’s number and no one seems to know it. He is not sure why Perry stays out of the limelight so much, but he is very hopeful that he will come out for the induction ceremony on April 7 of next year. “I think it would only be right and just,” he concluded. “He’s the one that created all the music with us.”
