LOL!

...right as Journey gets ready to embark on a new tour, Perry's gonna DROP AN ALBUM...


I better race to Reno to put money down on Neal rushing to put out a new album, to ride on the coattails (no pun intended) of what's gonna be a massive Perry-fest...

This is false promise #227 of a solo album from Steve Perry. How many times has he said he's "just putting the finishing touches" on an album in the past decade? I'll believe it when I see it.

I don't think I've heard him say that once in all this time. I've heard him saying he is writing, had 50 songs written, demos on the computer, building home studio, etc. But never "I am in the studio, have been for x months, and hope to finish soon." The only "promise" you might have a grievance with is "I'm working on it". Nothing ever gave me the impression that it was in a studio phase.

Here's one example, and I know there are more to find when I'm not on a lunch break. This was over 4 years ago.

Lately, Perry's been dabbling in film editing and writing music for a possible solo album, a challenging process after years of being away from the music business.

"I'm going to be recording sometime soon," said Perry.

True, but apparently sometime soon has now been since last March. Definitely more promising than in the past.

Again, I was referring to your comment about finishing touches. I agree that he has been saying "starting sometime in the near future" for a very long time. Just point out the difference of this one particular comment and how I've never heard him say "finishing touches" before.

Very excited to hear this. I have to believe his outing with the Eels helped him feel better about working on something new again.

Having said that, lets not forget that he worked on FTLOSM for 3 years.
He recorded two songs with Nuno Bettencourt but he never released them.
Lost Angels was a great track, never released.
Home at Last, one of his best solo songs IMO, never released.

I love hearing that he's working in the studio. If nothing else than for his own personal catharsis. Hopefully he's happy enough with what he does that he allows the rest of us to hear what he comes up with.

Side note:

I don't think some of you are giving Neal enough credit. I don't think he'll hate this. I think Neal is in a different place these days and I think he'll be happy Steve is finally getting himself back into the saddle again.

Journey out on tour isn't necessarily free promotion for a Steve Perry album. In fact, the opposite could be true. Perry's promotion for his album could have a positive impact on ticket sales for Journey's tour. The attraction works both ways because of the shared history.

Best case scenario: Steve's album comes to fruition, he develops the confidence to perform live again at some capacity, his solo career and Journey's career co-exist in the same universe...and some sort or reunion/one-off performance down the line becomes inevitable....and everyone's happy!

Worst case scenario: we're right back where we were yesterday.

I'm hoping for somewhere in the middle of your "best" and "worst" I just want to hear some new music from him, whether he performs live or with Journey is icing on the cake...nice, but not necessary!

I am waiting for announcement of next year's Journey Tour to change to "Journey with special guests Santana and Steve Perry!" :D

That would be a cool three-way bill. :D

IMHO, if Steve's album is, indeed, out next year, it would raise ticket sales for Journey to the stratosphere due to fans hoping to see some sort of reunion, even if it were stated by both sides that a reunion would not happen.

Steve Perry's fans would have that faint hope in their hearts that it might possibly take place, myself included.

Also, IMHO, Neal Schon might even tease the prospect of a walk on by Steve and tease it all the way to the bank, all the while, denying any reunion on Facebook etc. He, also, would not hesitate to wish Steve all the best on his album and vice versa from Steve regarding Journey's tour. Whether true or not, both sides could use it just as a good business angle. Publicity both sides with more money both sides makes for a win-win situation.

Sorry. I can't get excited about this. He's been making claims like this since VH1's Behind the Music...

3 different radio stations mentioned it today in Saint Paul.
KQRS gave it the most time. They discussed Neal and Steves falling out. Mentioned Dennis Deyoung as well.
Will have to see in the national pop culture media will react. They sure did when he did the Eels gig.
I am sure if he released it, he could go on just about any show to promote it. I highly doubt he would tour behind it.

I think this is the first time he mentioned he was in the studio and it will be complete soon.
It was always the same old thing, "thinking about it".
Hopefully it will see the light of day.

Fan Asylum also shared it via their Facebook page. Their site being the closest thing to an official Steve Perry website, they don't normally share info unless it is legit...so we'll see!

Along with everyone, would love to see it happen. But I absolutely refuse to be dragged into another false hope. Fool me once...unfortunately we've been fooled into thinking it will happen too many times.

I won't get excited until I see a release date and he starts promoting it with some samples. Sucks that we can't just take him at his word.

Well just keep an open mind and good thoughts; if it happens it will be wonderful; if not we didn't lose anything or gain a thing. I think it's great when someone wants to do something that they are wonderful at doing and finally succeed; I guess I'm the kind of person who supports anyone who wants to do anything even if it takes them several attempts over several years to actually get it done. If it's been disappointing for some of us then I can just imagine the person who was trying to get it done was really disappointed and saddened by the inability to do it. All we have is time.

I am hopeful that THIS time maybe true, but still skeptical of hearing this same old song and dance. I don't remember him ever saying he got to the point where he was seriously recording in the studio, like he recently stated. He's mentioned in the past of casually writing songs, but would never commit to anything.

Lets hope this time is for real, but I'm not putting any $$ on it until an actual release date, announcement, and some sort of promotion.
