I remember reading Perry worked on some things with Nuno from Extreme, I was wondering if anything ever progressed with the tracks they were working on?

I remember reading that Steve co-wrote a song with Nuno called "Always". I think it was suppose to go on the FTLOSM album but never made it.

Seems to me the FTLOSM was already out (1994) many years when I heard rumors of the Nuno connection, which seems like it was maybe 2005 that I remember hearing about that.

There's been more recent 'working' rumors, if I recall, as of last year. Don't have the time to pull it up, but I distinctly remember that popping up last year specific (and it being current working, not years ago working).

From the article:

Steve Perry ...In Conversation With Dave Reynolds

Frontiers, Issue 7, August 1995


So, what got the passion back? How did you re-discover yourself?

"It took a long time. I think part of it was recording stuff with Nuno Bettencourt from Extreme and seeing the passion in other people and realizing I had it in me again. I had just lost track of myself, cos I felt wrung out like a sponge. People like Nuno helped me to believe in it all again. Slowly but surely I started to write music that I could enjoy. See, if I don't like what I'm doing then I'm not gonna let you hear it. I have to believe in what I'm doing or I won't put it out."

What happened to the song you co-wrote with Nuno then? "He personally told me that he was more than a little disappointed that it didn't make the album!"

He was? "We recorded this really beautiful song, 'Always'. It was him and I singing with acoustic guitars, but I felt that I already had plenty of material like it on the album. I really enjoyed working with Nuno and I'm sure that at some point in time we'll write together again. He's just a brilliant kid, with so much feeling."

Been talked about for years. If it hasn't seen the light of day by now... probably never will.

Wow, I guess I was off the mark on that by a decade. I really thought that the Nuno thing was more recent but I guess not. Thanks for setting it straight.

You won't believe who Nuno is gonna be playing with on an upcoming tour.
