Duets

Postby tj » Mon Sep 26, 2016 11:24 am

I have been thinking about new music from Steve. I think a lower risk for him and a record company might be an album of duets. Take a dozen or so classic non-Journey songs and match them with Steve and another classic artist. Not a cheesy, Perry + Gaga or Perry +Taylor Swift. People with more long term history. Here's my current list:

Ann Wilson
Michael McDonald
Robert Plant
Linda Ronstadt
Don Henley
Patti LaBelle
Gregg Rolie
Daryl Hall
Stevie Wonder
Belinda Carlisle

I could list many more, and then of course what songs. Thoughts?

I think I read somewhere that he's supposed to have one with Mellisa Etheridge on his new album, although I wouldn't swear by that.

Ann Wilson and/or Daryl Hall. Etheridge would be awesome.

I tend to lean more towards it being a female.

The Etheridge duet was from the guy, forget the name who tweeted that Perry's new album was coming out in May 2016 and that he played on it. The tweet was immediately removed.

I don't care for Etheridge at all. Flash in the pan musically, in my opinion, whose primary fame has come from her early outing as a lesbian. Her musical imprint is pretty small.

I wouldn't even know where to start to comment on this. As Cyndy once told me and I quote often, her shows are not just concerts, they are revivals, experiences. She's an amazing writer and guitar player. As far as her voice, I could listen forever but I realize that's a personal thing.

Ditto all of that, Memorex.

"Flash in the pan?" That's a strange comment. She has been making amazing music for decades and has grown so much as a musician. I always loved seeing her shows which were always very uplifting. I always went home feeling better about myself and the world around me.

I remember seeing her on the 4th Street Feeling tour, where she had played all guitars on the album. Her as a player before that was great. Her after that was insane. The intricacies of her playing. It was really night and day.

Melissa's first 3 CDs were awesome to great. The fourth was good. the fifth right before or after her outing was ok. They rest were pretty much bad.

Her shows are good, but she got lost in her whole movement and suffered when it came to making new music. The bigger and bolder her music got, it lost a lot of the personal touch that it had.

Hello TJ. I agree with you that Patti LaBelle and Gregg Rolie would be perfect. I also feel Jean Carne would be a good fit, as well as Jennifer Hudson, Josh Stone, Chaka Khan, Billy Joel, and Ronald Isley. And perhaps Kirk Franklin (outside of his known genre). Or...a very famous singer from either Portugal or who is Portuguese with both singing in that language for one or two songs; one of which could be a Falco (unsure of spelling). Thoughts anyone?

Oh no not Patti Labelle or any of that caliber of singers; I think they are great but the genre is not Mr Perry. Kirk Franklin is neither but Adle...oh yeah,very similar. He might out sing even her but she's closest to his sound. Not that it even matters and who cares about my opinion but goodness gracious I think it would be phenomenal depending on the song and she listens to him not that he's opinionated or stubborn or anything but in regards to this particular endeavor if it could happen please my Lord,I would think after all these years of deliberations he might be right.

I agree...Adele would be a great choice to sing with SP. We can dream, can't we?

Hi Bellaire. I suggested Chaka Khan or Tina Turner several years ago when we had this topic come up. I was summarily dismissed. Poo-pooed, if you will. Good to see we finally got somebody with some taste around here (albeit a bit late). Ron Isley? :shock: I like how you're thinkin '. Could be very interesting :wink:
