Former Journey singer Steve Perry turns 64 today. Perry was with Journey from 1977-87 and 1995-98. His years with Journey was the best years for the group. That is when they were at their peak in popularity. I never cared much for Journey but I do love “Don’t Stop Believin’” which is a great song. I can’t help but think of The Sopranos when I hear it [it was the song playing over the final scene in the series} Don’t Stop Believin’ reached #9 back when it came out in 1981. It has been one of those songs that becomes more and more popular as time goes on. Steve Perry hasn’t released an album since 1994. Journey needs Perry back, he has stated that he’s not interested in ever going back with them though. The Steve Perry sound alikes that they have employed without him aren’t the real thing. Although I was never a Journey fan, Steve Perry does have a great voice.
below is my favourite and probably most people’s favourite Journey song-with Steve Perry singing it “Don’t Stop Believin’ It is the best selling song ever on itunes.
