Fans have been hoping and praying for a Steve Perry / Journey reunion for a LONG TIME and hoping against hope that the band’s long awaited induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame would be the impetus for one. Now in an interview with the Dayton Daily News, Journey keyboard player Jonathan Cain let slip that original lead singer Perry will indeed be on hand when Journey is finally inducted into the Rock Hall next Friday 4/7. Unfortunately it doesn’t sound like we’ll finally get them to perform together although the band has said he’d be welcome to.
Cain told the paper, “The ceremony is the first time we’re going to get to see Steve Perry in a long time, so that’ll be fun.” He continued, “As far as we know he’s just going to accept the award and then skedaddle. That’s all I know, unless something changes. Arnel is going to represent very well, like he always does.” Of course he’s referring to longtime Journey singer Arnel Pineda.
