Blocked him back around 1st week of Feb. He wouldn't provide proof of what he was claiming in his posts,
esp since the band or SP had not made any statements yet regarding a reunion .
See my above, Feb 4th, post to him .

Tater - this whack job says he's filed a lawsuit against me for $25 million because I didn't delete this thread. First time I've even seen it actually.... can you loan me the 25 mil seeing it's your fault?


Sure, can I send .50 cents / week by carrier pigeon ?

Well deserved - you were and are the tireless conduits for the fans. You always made every tour stop feel special, even though I know you were dealing with a million other folks like me (get me tickets, get me photos, get me t-shirts!!!) Thanks for everything from the fan side!

Oh - and let me just add - that was BEFORE the days when you paid an extra $3-500 per ticket for the privilege! The Force (and later SPIN) always made the fans feel like "VIPs" !!!


Holy crap. Way to make me tear up, Ted. I remember you and our talks on the phone. I hate what the music industry has become now. Bands don't give a shit about long term connections with their fans. It's all about how much money they can make and how fast they can make it. We experienced the best of times and Journey Force was something to be proud of.


Well deserved praise for both of you gals :)

See - that's EXACTLY what I'm talking about - how in the heck can you remember that?!?! lol

Well, I think you are right about the connections with the fans, but the music industry as a whole has made that shift -- the record companies don't care to put the long-term commitment into grooming their artists, the bands can't afford to put any long-term commitment into their fans - because they aren't making any money up-front on album sales like they used to - so that leaves the fans to pay the bill top to bottom.

I'm probably naïve and -- well, old-school -- but I miss the old days when the bands and their members were so much more of a mystery. Where you had to wait to see what they were doing next -- instead of knowing every time they wipe their noses like you do now.

Anyway - just wanted to say that you were as big a part of that success as they were - you guys WERE the fan's "internet" back in the day - they owe you plenty for keeping that fan base alive -- even when there were huge breaks between albums -- and leave it to Steve to be the one to think to give you the shout out!

Take care Lora - hope we can have a conversation about a NEW Steve album soon!

Lora, might this be the later this year you are referring to? I have posted this and some people think its a lot of nonsense but a fan on Facebook said she said this 1 month before RRRHOF. I have to remind people it is TENTATIVE. http://www.kshe95.com/news/real-rock-ne ... solo-album

Well, if there's a definitive source for Steve Perry news, certainly it's a guy who doesn't even have his phone number. ;)

Hey don't look at me. :lol: Steve's management set the trend FIRST by contacting JRNY management who then AS PER NEAL gave the info to Jon that he was coming to RRHOF. And I remember people saying here (yes here!) that his word couldn't be official. And what happened? He not only shows up but gives a 6.5 almost 7 minute speech that even now has Jonathan saying that he stole the show, and had the audience grasping for more. Now Neal was told not by management, but by Steve personally, as per Neal, at the RRHOF induction that his album was done and he tweets that he heard it was finished, only serves as a confirmation. So...just look at the pattern. Communication ISN'T going by the usual channels anymore. Steve's lawyer says via Billboard internet news article that he is in DEEP negotiations for his new album and that was NOT on Steve's official channel. So...these are UNUSUAL times.

When Steve comes out with his new album (and hopefully a promotion, small or large doesn't matter), I am sure FA team will be right on it making the FAN feel special again. Maybe that should be part of their tagline: Making the fan feel special again!

No, I don't want a cut. :lol:

Excited. This...is...gonna be GOOD!!!

Wow, I totally missed FA and the music of Journey during those early years with Mr Perry. My intro was with SA and the mess and fiasco that followed. Gee I do remember getting in touch with FA and asking about Mr Perry and....well, that is for another time but if he incorporates the dedicated and loving fans with this music release...wow, it makes me appreciate everything he has been through on and off the stage. Every season has a reason. Those fans are so dedicated. They believed in him! And still do. I just like to read, watch and listen from the sidelines and scream and applaud him for a life well lived! This might get to be real exciting or not! No pressure just a whole lotta love! Wow this has got me thinking of a few people who .....cooooool!

Not to be a naysayer here, and I have no doubt Mr. Perry has music ready to go, but I, the optimist is doubting it will see the light of day this year.
As a Cancer Survivor, and having lost several to the disease myself, I hope he's at peace with himself and the person he Lost.
But I'd still love to hear what he has, and to take my new wife to see him at a small venue.
The guy is magic, plain and simple.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.

Here's an update for y'all .... Steve hasn't been nominated for "Grammy Award for Best New Artist". :shock:

So no rush Mr Perry, take your time and grab your Grammy in 2019. 8)

Re: Rumors Abound ...new pictures

Postby bellairepark73 » Fri Dec 01, 2017 1:31 am

Well regarding those pictures on Twitter, dang word gets around and his pictures get shared faster than warp 10.
Here is one that was not posted here, however. It was taken with a costume designer by the name of Mandi who does costume design for music videos. Possible chance meeting. I have asked the poster for details but no response. Not even sure where but am sure of the date.

I can't get the pictures to post. It says the board has reached its limit with attachments. Can someone help me out please?

I hate to say it...but I think you could be right especially since the people at FA are making a distinct point of NOT even coming down here AT ALL! They STAY upstairs and post on the threads they feel comfortable to post at (read unencumbered). Of course, it took FTLOSM 3 years to come out, so 2018 might see it...but... He STILL has not caused Steve Perry.com to fly, even though it is under construction. By the way I am trying to attach pictures and it says that board has reach its limit with attachments and won't allow it. Andrew? Anyone?

I believe anyone from FA can 'come down here' as an individual and post comments
just like any other individual can. Everytime they post a comment or their personal
opinion on a post doesn't necessarily mean they are representing FA or SP's direct
thoughts/opinions on a subject matter. I'm sure they all have personal thoughts/
opinions outside their jobs, like we all do, so quit throwing shade their way.

You are right tater. I grouped them and that is NOT fair. I would like to apologize for that. I am a supporter of theirs as previous posts can attest to. Once again, I apologize. I should have thought more carefully on how to phrase it.

Well I have already written my post about my disenchantment with all of that, but operating from a place where I am invisible I consider my words are ignored and any complaints are not taken to the heart. My weed analogy still applies although sometimes I feel I am out here lost in the woods. I seriously believe there is nothing to report and when they find out something significant those in the know will share about “themanwhowillremainnameless”. Otherwise I know I am as usual spitting in the wind and only time will tell when news will be shared. Peace out!

FA or not, what's there to come down here and comment on? As much as we'd all like to hear the new stuff, there are far more important things to focus on, like life. FA folks lives don't pause waiting for Steve and neither do ours. I'm pretty sure that the second an update is available, it will be relayed to us. No word most likely means nothing to report at this moment.
