Steve Perry's voice is unlike any other..many can imitate him but none equal the range and emotion. Though I love most everything Steve sings..my favorite is I'll Be Alright Without you..
My friend John Neff and I were talking about Steve and what happened back when he left Journey. John talked about singers being blown out by Journey. I questioned what he meant by that and John clarified..those songs they do are DIFFICULT to sing..it takes an amazingly strong set of pipes to sing like that night after night.
When they filmed the huge "We Are the World" video years ago..Tina Turner was blown away by Steve's voice more than any other celeb on set. We agree. I am a Steve Perry-Journey fan and proud of it..
Stephen Ray "Steve" Perry is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, and musician, best known as the lead vocalist of the rock band Journey during their most commercially successful periods from 1977 to 1987 and 1995 to 1998
Journey icon Steve Perry has hinted that if his long-awaited solo project ever appears it could be tinted by contemporary rock acts like Muse and Imagine Dragons.
He says he's fascinated by the results of fusing classic rock values to emerging electronic sensibilities, and suggests the movement has been informing his recent writing sessions.
Speaking at a rare public appearance, Perry tells Artisan News: "I've just been writing music and seeing what I could find," he said. "It's such a new cool world of music when you're mixing electric music with rock like Muse and Imagine Dragons. It's such a cool direction." Watch the interview here
