Journey’s Current Singer Wants Steve Perry To Return To The Band
Following Steve Perry’s return to the live stage after 18 years this week, Journey’s current frontman Arnel Pineda says Perry should reunite with his old band.
Perry joined alternative rock band EELS in St. Paul, Minnesota on Sunday to perform a pair of classic Journey tunes. The crowd at the Fitzgerald Theater saw Perry take the stage with EELS for their track, “It’s A Motherf***er”, before launching into Journey’s “Open Arms” and “Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin’.”
A fan tweeted Pineda a link to video of Perry’s performance, to which he replied, “He should come back. His voice is still there. [I] missed that voice.”
The dialogue continued, with Pineda offering up more thoughts on the subject. “It will be cool if [Steve would] come to one of your shows and just come up and sing with you guys. That will definitely be epic,” wrote the fan. “He can take over too,” replied Pineda. “It’s his righteous place anyway. [I] wanna see them happy together.”
