STEVE PERRY Says Reunion With JOURNEY Is Unlikely

Ex-JOURNEY singer Steve Perry tells The Associated Press that a reunion with his former bandmates is probably not going to happen.

“It’s like any emotional, committed relationship. At some point, they seem to all have a shelf life and bands are no exception,” he said. “Life has moved us all on in different places in our lives. They’re doing what they’re doing — they have been since ’98. And I’ve been doing what I’m doing, which is living my life and having a personal life.”

Perry said that he is stunned that JOURNEY‘s smash hit “Don’t Stop Believin'” — which he wrote with JOURNEY keyboardist Jonathan Cain and guitarist Neil Schon — continues to resonate with so many people.

“It’s very shocking because now I’m getting it for 7-, 8-, 9-, 10-year-olds coming up to me, and they love that song and they’ve made it their song,” said Perry, 62. “It’s just amazing to me.”
