Steve and Herbie

Finally, he talks about Herbie.

Herbie Herbert, who was Journey’s original manager, passed away in October. You stayed in touch and friendly with him, didn’t you?

Perry: For about the last year and a half I was in touch with him, yeah. We had some of the greatest conversations. He changed my life. He gave me a chance. He heard my demo tape and believed in me, and his wish was to convince the band, Journey, to give me a chance to prove myself worthy and they gave me that chance. He saw that they needed something and convinced them I was that something. In one of those recent conversations, about four months ago, he said, “All I can tell you is when I heard you sing with that band, it was instant chemistry.” I’ll forever be indebted to Herbie Herbert.

It's good that if there was any negativity between the two, even after the HOF ceremony, that maybe they moved past that and let it go. It seemed to me that Steve's speech during the HOF was him trying to do that with all of Journey and even called out Herbie. There was an interview somewhere with Herbie, or maybe Neal, where Herbie did not seem to take it seriously. by the end, maybe he did...it's impossible to really know.

And he ejected the dude that gave him a shot and got him the gig. Fuck that.

Perry was the absolute best male vocalist on the planet. However, as a person, opinions vary. How you can roll out on the dude that got you the deal is a question, someone should ask him.

Should someone ask Neal how he could fire the management that were with them through the reunion, Augeri, Soto, and Arnel? Then fire the new management that stood with them through the lawsuit, and got them the various festival concerts last year, and the Vegas gig? How Neal could believe crazy stories about a "coup" and refire Smith and Valory, the same as Perry did? How he hired JSS and then fired him without any warning or real cause?

Seems to me that Perry is a bit of a nice guy compared to what Neal has become. And, it is a bit hypocritical to critique Perry, as I have for a long time, but not call out Neal for his own attitude and actions.

Precisely Monker! But it seems that the rules are never applied evenly when it comes to Steve as those with that mind set constantly want to apply a different set of standards to him but not to the others.

People change management, disagree with management ALL THE FREAKING TIME in the music industry! Fire, re-hire, back stab, play nice. It SEEMS as if the time they spent apart and in contact/communication with each other was enough to perhaps to heal old wounds for BOTH of them. For you, not so much perhaps? Anyway, Herbie is dead and the world has moved on.

According to Neal, Lights was the first song he wrote with Steve Perry. Don't know why anybody believes anything he says.
