Steve Perry Denies Asking To Return To Journey

November 16th, 2010 2:25pm EST
Journey
Former Journey frontman Steve Perry has rubbished reports he asked to rejoin the group in the wake of the rockers' recent revival.

Rumors swirled last week that Perry, who quit the Don't Stop Believin' hit-makers for a solo career in 1998, wants to return to the band.

However, a spokesman for the singer has blasted the gossip, insisting it is untrue and that Perry is happy for Journey to continue without him. The rep tells the RockAAA website, "It's just not true... Steve is enjoying his retirement."

And a spokesman for the band adds, "Journey is recording an album with (current singe...

Steve Perry Wants To Rejoin Journey?

Former Journey frontman Steve Perry has stunned his former band mates by asking to rejoin the group in the wake of the rockers' recent chart revival.

Perry left the band for good in 1998 to embark on a solo career and Filipino singer Arnel Pineda took over vocal duties in 2007. They have since enjoyed renewed success after their power ballad Don't Stop Believin' was covered by the cast of hit TV musical Glee.

And now former frontman Perry allegedly wants to rejoin the band, according to founding member Neal Schon.

The guitarist tells Britain's Daily Star, "He seems to be enjoying the ...

Journey's Steve Perry Insists He Never Used The 'N' Word

Steve Perry
Former Journey star Steve Perry has taken aim at comedienne Sarah Silverman for suggesting he used a racist slur to describe her humor.

Silverman refused to name names in her interview with Playboy magazine, but hinted that the "onetime lead singer of a very popular band from the 1980s" was Perry, joking, "I'll just say this: After that, I stopped believin'," which the rocker took as a reference to Journey hit "Don't Stop Believin.'"

She claimed the mystery man approached her after a show and said, "You're my favorite comedian - you have the best n**ger jokes."

But Perry wasn't laughing ...

Megan Eliminated On 'American Idol' - Thoughts?

April 2nd, 2009 8:43am EDT
American Idol
Why write a coherent recap of American Idol when we can ramble? If they don't want to produce a watchable show, why should I produce a readable column?

So Alexis Grace is in the audience next to Jason Castro. Are they dating? C'mon, I can sing off-key too! Of course, I'll never have that hair.

Just realized that statement could be taken to mean I have a crush on either Jason or Alexis. I'll leave it ambiguous.

It's funny that the audience doesn't even care enough about Kara to boo her when she asks. Maybe they already assume she's been fired.

Here's what gets Paula...

Collateral Damage From Robert Plant's Decision To Nix Zep Reunion

December 25th, 2008 5:00pm EST
Led Zeppelin
Since the surviving members of Led Zeppelin reformed last December for a one-off show to pay tribute to late Atlantic Records founder and legend Ahmet Ertegun, the man who discovered and brought us some of the most talented artists of all-time (seriously, we really could use another Ahmet right about now-- but since the almighty dollar overshadows the need for actual talent we can forget that) and gave a handful of folks in England the greatest holiday gift ever, there has been a weekly story about the band going on tour. And not going on tour. But wanting to tour. And not wanting to tour. ...

AARP Tour: Bands That Shouldn't Be Touring Anymore

June 24th, 2008 10:25am EDT
Steely Dan
Sometimes it seems like a band just doesn't know when to quit. Just imagine how many times you've heard some classic rock DJ try to pawn off front row tickets to Steely Dan, or how many advertisements you've seen for a free REO Speedwagon show at the naval base followed by fireworks and the Glen Hill retirement community brass band. While I'll admit that the willingness of these groups to play every major outdoor amphitheater each summer showcases their tenacity, it doesn't exactly work wonders for their dignity. After a while, playing to half-empty audiences of drunken suburbanites has to ...

Newcomer Lisa Palleschi Releases Her Debut Album, "Released"

November 24th, 2006 10:00am EST
Lisa Palleschi
"I think this album has two personalities," Lisa Palleschi says of her debut, Released. "Half the songs are really pretty ballads, love songs, and the other half are more in-your-face, rock songs."

Indeed, Released is chock full of humanity: Its songs map the extreme ups and downs that every person experiences. It's full of love (the sensuous, lush cover of The Cure's classic "Just Like Heaven") and heartbreak (the scornful "I Wanna See You Cry"). And the big-voiced Long Island, N.Y. born siren wouldn't have it any other way.

Ranging from the sweeping to the sweet, the beautifully...

Steve Perry Of Journey
According to the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago White Sox have chosen "Don't Stop Believin'" by 80's supergroup Journey as their World Series theme. They're even considering jetting ex-frontman Steve Perry to the first game. "A.J. said, `We've got to get this guy to the World Series,'" Sox vice president of communications, Scott Reifert, told the Tribune.

Starpulse.com's Squints has now picked the White Sox as the favorite to win the World Series. Only Journey can break the curse of the Black Sox (in 1919, eight playe...
