"Did you sleep. Are you tired? Are you Pissy dehydrated? I mean, what is it today? Where are you today because that's what you are vocally. So you're so subject to the mood swings and the physical aspects of that instrument and its neurotic unpredictable one day, you go to this place in your throat for that note. Oh. He'd go that one spot the next day. It's not they're just made that up. I should write that. Give you credit? This is a co. Kodak in the room. But seriously, that's a really astute observation, by the way, I'm not whining. But when when people sort of taxing those singers, you know, lead singers disease shut up, you know, you don't know what it's like to be that neurotic because instrument is you we've been completely astonished. Some of the folks that you've delivered especially in a live context, this clip, you probably very well aware on YouTube of don't stop believe in Houston. It's like seventy million views. If that is the live focal. Yeah. That's frankly, it is it is a live vocal. I mean. It's a stunning for me to be honest. Like I said looking back now I can see from the outside looking in. When I was in it. I could not see it the requirements of the moment. The demands of the schedule. The absolute frightening fear that I knew the truck was rolling tape in the back, which I hate it. I never liked recording live because it put me on Front Street, and I really couldn't move around as much enjoy myself as much because if you do that you're buzzing. When you're singing. So I'd have to keep still because vocally it messes for the voice if you move around too much, so everything would have to tone down and become this vocal focus because the truck is running tape so wasn't pleased with it too much. But these are the kind of things my mind was thinking about as opposed to now looking at it. I'm kinda surprised that good too. Because wasn't that knowledgeable to be honest with you, you know, I was she hung. It's kinda like there's there's moments I think when everything has Pete moments, and as fortunate enough to be an a moment where certain things vocally just clicked, and it was like I was along for the ride and it just took care of itself. I was very fortunate. It's not that way. Now, I have to go get this stuff. Have you go find it is the story troop that one that you're in the middle of the nice in a hotel room in Detroit's rice. Well, okay. The song got written afterwards after a tour. And I remember when it came time to lyrics. We'd started the song in Oakland. 'cause I turned John Kane. And I said, you know, I've always loved songs that have quarters panel being, you know, whether it's penny lane or there's so many songs have quarters in the piano like that. And I said, we don't have one. That's right one. So he started hitting the quarters, and I start just singing, you know, and writing up these sort of like melody ideas, then we wrote melody ideas for the streetlight people section, and it dawned on me that when I was in Detroit, we had finished a show, and I was like ten floor looking down. It was not sleepy perhaps some bad behaviors were in place. But anyway, I was looking down and the streetlights I found fascinating. Because. They were all facing down, which is obvious. But I didn't realize how glow the sidewalks streets, and you don't see see the glow. And there's people milling about running around everywhere. He's like three in the morning. I'm thinking what's going on streetlight people down there? They're still on the streets looking for a motion somewhere in the dark. So when John Canaanite sat together to do the lyric that came up. But I do remember when we were writing the song. I don't know John remembers. But I remember he thought that streetlight people was the chorus. I said, no, I think we need the chorus, of course. And and it'd be looked at me. Like, what does that mean? I don't know. I think we need to write the chorus, of course, to go out on, you know. And that's where we started working on the don't stop believing out tro, which never goes back to again. Yeah. Infrastructure wise..

"Produce, a whole range of ideas and stole them in some way, when you rights into end up with a whole cache of stuff, I've got probably sitting around a good sixty more. Yeah. It was hard sifting through it all and deciding which wants to do because once I opened up that creative process again, and I faced the demons said don't dare go in there. And I went in anyway, it kind of opened up, and yeah, it opened up. Yeah. So I've got a lot of stuff must be quite hard as well. This is the reconnect with kind of old ideas going back to something that you may be like because you know. Years ago, and then trying to get of way you wearing your head. When you wanna know something it's funny for me. It's not on my phone. I could play you some sketches I do in the morning in notes, and it's just me with the base singing a couple of lines, and I can tell you all ready know where that's supposed to go. But I need a couple of key phrases to spark the memory of what the landscape direction was right. And then I'm back to sort of what the Lamont Dozier version of it would be. That vision he has for everything. He does. Yeah. You mentioned base. Would you typically accompany yourself when you call is? Okay. I've got several bases. I love base. I was a drummer for years, and I still love drums affected, the drums on the backside of betrays his help he is my drum set. It's an olive grad set, I got back in the sixties when I was in a Rb ban. And I was drummer singer for years I used to sing and play drums like, you know, Don Henley or fell Collins. It was great because I knew what the drummer was doing because it was me. So I could just disconnect from the drums to sing and not worry about the drums and just kind of schizophrenically become a singer. But the thing about the basis got changes in its got suspensions in it. It's got rid in minute. Sometimes I'll sing these songs just holding onto it not even playing having it my hand. So I can pretend that I don't have to think about singing, I could just sing interesting edge to have it my hand. Yeah. You know? It's just a little bit of. Pacify or maybe. Vocalists that we've known of the use of recorded songs or come up with these just singing out loud on the. Oh, yeah. This phone thing. I do a lot. So if you found in in making this new album is a new era of creativity of you always being sort of taken ideas album is is the new era of creativity. Because when I left the group there was zero creativity. I did not write music or singing, the shower people find that hard to believe, but I really had to shut it down to walk away. I couldn't entertain any slippery backdoors because it'd be too easy to fall back into what would be an instantaneous gratification of being in front of an audience again and pretending. Everything's just fine. When I really knew I need to walk away from it with the conviction that if it was ever to come back, then so be it if not that I already lived dreams, and we did the best anyone would want to do it. So I was just going to walk into my life into ether. Of who knows what Jude?.

And you were back. Golden State me the concepts need to podcast catching teeth. Some more lyrics from no more crying. No more crying because I won't love yin. I won't. No. I won't no more crying. I won't love again. I won't I won't. I won't. The out show won't I won't. I won't won't won't won't won't won't won't. I mean, man, just so. St. Perry's traces is basically an album. I mean, you can feel it. This was about his his girlfriend the died. He loved her very much. And what I what I didn't say the beginning of the podcast is that she made him promise before she died that he will get back singer Yan. She knew that the world needed to hear his voice again, she made him promises that he would start seeing again music again. And so basically, he just got out of the business and just stop singing. There wasn't like his voice was bad or anything. He just he's just dipped out. So she made him promise that that was one of her dying wishes. So traces, you know, traces could being when you say traces in his albums called traces that could be traces of love the traces of the life that he had with her. It was such a deeper profound life of love. But yeah, this album is about finding love with her the joy of it and having to deal with the loss of it morning it and he says he won't find love again. Or he doesn't want to. He doesn't want to get it. But I don't know if that would be dying wishes just said. I mean when you've been with someone for so long than a die. It can't be easy. But he he made a great record. He did. Steve Perry has an amazing soul of ways. If you listen to journey you you'll you know what I mean? I would encourage you. If you don't know who they are pick up any of those albums his own here. Open arms or don't stop leaving. He's just a big, warm and generous voice that just. Grabs you inside and reaches you pulls. I mean, it's just. Yeah. If you don't like don't stop believing something's wrong with you. All I gotta say. So it's good to hear him singing again singing, again, it's just a strange how the bohemian rhapsody film just came out about Queen. And Freddie, Mercury in such a great front man was such a big voice. I mean when you hear him sing, I mean Queen journey took rock ballads tool. I mean, they might as well haven't invented rock ballads as far as I'm concerned. So it's just really ironic that movies out about Queen, Freddie. American. Invent Steve Perry comes back with the Sala record. So he's been gone for twenty years. But yeah. So it's a great record. It's it's definitely all him. I look forward to him you more records and working with different producers outlook for him experimenting with the sound. This is a good solid rock and roll. I'd say rock and roll rock and soul type of record. It's good. I like it on a scale of one that. I mean in the things like I said that they miss just the scullery of love and the loss of love, basically due to tragedy. Not because of a break up and be it's just and it's also the celebration of life that occasion to someone that you love that meant so much to you. So yeah, Steve Perry traces, Steve Perry, not rich no singer of journey, but the one that put them on the map most indeed, the one that you remember the one that you hear you've heard him..

"Steve Perry welcome to inside the studio. Thank you nice to be here. You've got the motorcycle boots and you actually ride. I do motorcycle boots but I soon my back. I had to get rid of it. I was afraid I was going to kill myself but it saved my life when I first left. The Bam first thing I did was go back to my hometown and jump on a Harley that I bought that I never owned before I bought. A software custom was a beautiful motorcycle. I bought it in California and I drove to Hanford California put it in a storage unit which I rented and it lived there so every time I go to bed hometown of mine. I just park the car and jump on that bike and ride out in the country. Where the Vince Posts and the jackrabbits were of my youth to be honest with you. And I did that a lot back then. It was no helmet. Law was just long hair behind you. You know it. Kinda helped put my head back together again. Did you grow up writing? No but I did have a Honda when I was a young. Get at Honda trail-bike. It's where I used to drive to school so I kind of like scooters like that right you know. Wait so this Harley. This is like the fulfilment of some sort was. It was finally bought a Harley and it was evolution engine beautiful and soft. L. Custom had a cabernet color tank and vendors. Just really I used to drive out in the country and then after it helped put my brain back together and give me comfort. I actually just gave somebody here because I just didn't think I should be on. I'm I'm just not that talented writing anymore. We're in an accident or well when I used to drink. I certainly would lay it down a couple of times right because the truism is that there are two kinds of motorcycle riders those who've been in an accident and those who will be in an accident tribe. That's right. How bad was it when you lay down? I was actually just coming out of a bar had had too many drinks and I just went to write it and start it and I lost my balance in that. Dropped it with people who don't ride don't realize pounds. It's heavy it's heavy. I'd have to buddies. Help me straighten it out right. So that's kind of taught me that number one. I shouldn't drink writhing number. Two is to me me. I'm just not that skill a writer. You've said that when you left the band bought this Harley had helped put your head back together. Did you've talked about that as a period where you had a kind of. Ptsd it. What form did this? Ptsd take for you for me. I could not listen to music of any kind and I could not sing or write music of any kind. The only thing I could listen to stuff that was called ambient at that time which was like liquid mine. Steve Roach had some music out. This was like ambient and there was no drums. Guitars was no voices. There was no anything like that and it was just something. I thought that Especially liquid mind the changes of liquid mine a sort of or emotionally putting back together a little bit at a time but it was quite some time before I listen to the music of my youth which was The army and Sam Cooks and all that took a while to get back to that in just to stick with that notion of putting your mind back together that PTSD. It sounds like also you were self medicating at that point self medicating how was not medicating. Well drinking is all. There's no doubt that before. I even left the group in some sort of behaviors okay and that contributed to the emptiness that was a feeling of disconnect with the passion for music. It was a pretty scary thing so I didn't just go back to my hometown in disappear. I reconvened with some feelings and streets in the country roads and the old ice cream parlor plus I had at that time. My father's sister was still alive and I wouldn't help take care of her. Because she was into nineties and Got Her situated and visited her a lot because she was going from from one home of living to another as her needs became more for assistance so I was taking care of her two. It was a big thing I was doing at the time. You mentioned the music that had. I met a lot to the music that you grew up on. Yeah tell me more about that. Who were the singers that you learned from? Oh my goodness the once I learnt the most from were pocket. Singers had rhythm in their phrasings. The Sam Cooks Jackie. Wilson's the Levi stubbs from the tops. Even smokey Robinson in his own way was very light and loyalty but so soulful Marvin Gaye of course then later Kim Gladys Knight I love the supremes when I was growing up. You know I was really big Motown Fan. So besides the songwriting and recording in the music. I grew up with there. Was this other factor of what were they doing? Meaning how are they recording it? How does it sound that way? And why does it feel that way? And how did they get that drum sound and what kind of echoes? On the Voice of Levi Stubbs Song Bernadette her baby I need your Lovin or or the Marvin Gaye troubled man? I mean there was just another focused. It started to show up in my heart of trying to learn from all that an early age so those are production engineer. They were but they were invaluable things that I thought I needed to pay attention to and I started really early on listening to to the whole thing. 'cause I realized very early on like about seven eight years old. Why does it feel and sound that way? It wasn't just a forty-five what went into this. Why does it come out like that? I wanted to know what's behind it so I slowly started to just go to school so to speak with going into these tracks. Listening to the echoes is it. Stereo isn't model. My goodness mono wow okay and start really getting into why it works the way. It does in and then all of a sudden years later when the Beatles showed what I found fascinating. If you listen to motown most of those were Donald four-track and if you listened to early like Beatles for sale record. It's four track because you can hear that they've recorded like three tracks ambassador to the left of the Bam and you can hear that they have a no reply for instance they have Ringo and I think George and maybe Paul in the distance on the right side one track accentuating downbeat of the chorus. No reply do okay so you got ring on the right Guam and pinching symbol with a boom. Okay see you get that in time with what's already there on the left side when they the basic so they're accentuating with an accent stuff that works with the main track in the most cool way and then they have to tracks left them to mess around do vocals down the middle. Now what's really fascinating is listen lead. Vocal of John in the middle. The echoes on the right. Tom Left so when they're mixing the stuff. These are the things these decisions have decided to make to give spread to give it this inclusive feeling dude. Four channels for channels. What that means is that they had to really make a commitment. Once you commit to these tracks you can't go back his unlike today when he got tracks to choose from in like recording right. Now you've got multiple tracks can choose from. No you got four channel. We're talking about the Beatles. There's a Beatles Song on traces on your new album is I need you. How did you come to choose that one? What drew you to it when I was really young love the helper but there was one song by George Harrison called. I need you. That was so beautiful and it was a Boston older. They were kind of into that Bossa Nova thing at that time. They did a lot to though. I liked it. I thought it was a bigger song. I wasn't being degraded. I just thought my goodness this is such a great song. I think it needs a different treatment and I knew that as a kid so that when it came time to do the traces record so this is one. You've been thinking about feeling for a long time. Then well that was been the back pocket for years since I was a kid so I turned to my co producer engineer. Tom Flowers is at Tom. You know I got this idea. I got this sketch of majors with acoustic voice on one of my drives. Kinda played for you. It's a Beatles song called. I need you by George Harrison so I played it for him and he loved it so the next thing. I know Vinnie. Calcutta was over her recording. Some drums I think for no more CRYAN. I said Vinnie. I got this other song. Would you mind just doing a pass on it? She sure what he I played it for. Me Says Yeah. Vinnie does kind of a feel from heaven so he went out there. One Pass just nailed it so from that point on. That song became what I always envisioned it to be. Which is the piano and voice in the beginning then coming in and growing and growing with background vocals. I wrote different background vocals. The tro then on the original and with a drum brake going into them. And it's on my record. I wouldn't have that wasn't Libya because I was only going to put it on my record if I got so you played her the finished version so I brought the CD into a Livia and she turned it on and listen to the whole thing top to bottom and I was very nervous because this is a living you know and I love George so much. She listened to the whole track one time and she grabbed the remote and click a restarted. It and I went. Oh my goodness you hear something. She wasn't pleased with. I thought you know and she got halfway through the second. Listen turn the volume down said George would have just loved this so much and I'll tell you what I felt his soul. Just give me approval through. Olivia and I needed her blessing. So that's why it's on the record you know it's also interesting as well. This is a song. You've been thinking about today. I heard it now that you've had in your back pocket as you say emotionally but fits a record that often deals with love loss. A record that you said would not exist without heartbreak. I think that's very true. I've said it before and I guess I should say it again that Hardee's and complete until it's completely broken. Annuity YOU LOSE SOMEBODY. That completely breaks your heart. Here's just not probably as seasoned or completed human being as you could be and I can only tae that's been my experience at didn't feel great. Losing Kelly was horrible from time to time. I still go through the the heartbreak like it was yesterday. But that's just I think affirmation of the strength of what we had. It's just an affirmation of that but The record traces is not all heartbreak. It's about rock and roll. It's about class reunion moments. It's it's about we're still here it's about you know there's a lot of great music on the record but there are a couple of songs Do deal with the loss of somewhat. Well you just mentioned a reunion moment. I think you might be referring to the first track on the record your spare.

"The opening track on the first album. Perry recorded with journey nineteen seventy-eight eight fifty was lights. Which is familiar to anyone seen as San Francisco giants game and you can hear the classic soul music that Perry grew up loving in those opening chords once again. This song is packing full of longing. It sipped in this case. It's not about wanting to be under the spotlight It's about wanting to return home in some sense. Those two impulses and the contradiction between them would define everything. Perry journey did over the next decade. He helped create a stadium packing monster of rock seven consecutive multi platinum albums top forty singles from these speeding ticket. Inducing stopper any way you want it to these slow waltzing open arms which will be one of the cornerstones of the Power Ballad Hall of fame. If they ever get around to building one sure know how. And then there were songs that combined both stomping and power balloting like. Don't stop believing or Sherry. The nineteen eighty four single Perry's first solo album street. Talk Steve Perry was a guy who could combine prog rock with soul music or the classicism of Bruce springsteen with new wave since and drums. He had a voice that was operatic Freddie Mercury style. But one reason is music became a soundtrack to everyday life is that it actually felt rooted in it. It really doesn't matter that there is no such places. South Detroit matters is that there are lonely. People who feel the way the small town girl and the city boy in don't stop believing field and who want to both experience that feeling and get some relief from it for the four minutes and nine seconds. That's on West. There were a lot of those kinds of people. Journeys greatest hits has sold better than ten million copies. But in February of Nineteen eighty-seven Steve. Perry played the last of seventy four dates on journeys. Tour for their ninth album. The aptly named raised on radio and he returned home and for a long while. That was it he was done. Perry was suffering from what he describes his PTSD and he went back to the San Joaquin Valley in Central California where he grew up in order to recover. Ptsd something other musicians have spoken with. Refer to when they talk about how difficult it can be to adjust to the real world after life on the road in case it was something more than that a burn out. So severe that initially. He found himself. Unable to listen to any music. Other than the soothing sounds of ambient. He spent time writing Harley caring for family and trying to reconnect with himself though he'd make another solo album in nineteen ninety four. It was a little out of step with things at the height of grunge and though he'd reunite with journey for an album in nineteen ninety six. He did not want to tour for it. He seemed to be done with the spotlight that he'd been longing for back when he wrote patiently in. Nineteen seventy seven. But something happened. During Perry's time away the music he made with journey critically dismissed at the height of its popularity is corporate rock began to be more beloved. Which is the kind of thing that does happen is cultural. Gatekeepers BEGIN TO CHANGE IN. The people raised on radio when it was defined by journey begin to make culture of their own. In Perry's case Patty Jenkins who go on to direct the blockbuster wonder woman contacted him about using. Don't stop believing in a scene for her two thousand and three independent film monster shortly after she made the request. Perry turned up on asking how he could help her with her movie. The two became friends four years later. Don't stop believing turned up again in the two thousand and seven finale of the Sopranos after which it shot right up the I tunes chart becoming be number three selling download twenty four years after its nineteen eighty-one release and the journey revival would only continue from there. It's at that revival did nothing to coax Perry back into public life but eventually he met a woman who would ultimately do so in two thousand and eleven. Patty Jenkins directed an episode of five policy of TV movies about breast cancer and its impact on people's lives. Perry was visiting Jenkins one day when she was editing and he was struck by one of the extras in a scene that featured real cancer patients. It was Kelly Nash. Los Angeles psychologist Perry asked for an email introduction but Jenkins wanted him to know nashes condition before reaching out she had been in remission but her cancer had returned and spread to her lungs and bones. At that moment I had the opportunity to send no email pullback. No harm no foul. Perry told rolling stone. Recently I would just go back to my safe life instead. I said send the email and an email turned into a phone call. That lasted more than five hours and soon enough. The two were living together. They had just a year and a half together before Nash passed away in December of twenty twelve.

"Right. My goodness, that is Steve Perry circuit nineteen, Eighty-three singing faithfully off journeys. Album frontiers. Now, of course of waste changes over time. That was a long time ago in my humble opinion of voice only gets more wonderful with experience over time, but I was curious to know how Steve feels about his instrument. Now, the recordings that you would have done in the eighties are etched into our memories, and I'm sure into yours too. So tell me about like being in the studio and recording these songs for your new album and hearing your voice comeback at u through monitors in that in that situation. What was that like? You really wanna know. Are you sure, really positive, Steve Perry land on me. Oh, my goodness. Well, I guess I have to be truthful here on the world cafe. It's a challenging thing because I can be super critical. To the point where I may pass up. Something I think is just not good enough and lucky for me up my co-producer, Tom flowers will be sitting there. He's also my engineer and he'd say, oh, I love the way you said she can't just a little bit of a croak on the voice. He all, but that's what I like about it, you know? And I go really go. Yeah, I should, but it'd be better if it was more. Oh, so let me try it again. So then I try to sing it again and do what I want to it, and then I'd get to one I wanted and he'd sit there and say, yeah, I see what you mean that is. That is certainly, I guess, different maybe better to you, but listen to this and he would play the one he light. Imperfect, more emotional. So I had to allow that to be enough. Yeah, I'm thinking about the the kind of singer that you are in the kind of singer that people know you to be from those really big high notes in journey and what it is to be the lead singer. Abandon that situation because the way that you used your voice is like more similar to opera singer or musical theater performer, where you're like, asking it to do these Olympic things. And there's a huge difference being the singer in a band and being a person who plays an instrument in a band because you are doing something really athlete that requires a certain kind of maintenance. And I was wondering if if at that, if at that time there is a part of having having expectation of you yourself being the instrument in this really demanding way, whether that felt lonely at all. Again, you've struck a chord was something I've always felt that nobody talks about and that is you being the instrument, you just said the instruments in your throat, but it's not the vocal box. It's Hugh, did you get enough sleep? Are you kind.
Henry Cavill reportedly out as Superman in stunning DC movie universe shakeup
"Story out from the Hollywood reporter in the DC universe. Dc is like the comics. They are the ones that have Batman. They have. I dunno as wonder woman DC, I really don't know is that marvel I don't know my heroes style. I know that Batman and superman in the Justice league and things like that. It's not the it's not the really big. It's not the X men because that's marvel it's not the spider-man's and the iron man's and the hulks and things that's all marvel but in the DC universe. They're losing one of their big lead. Men Harvey ca Ville, he played superman in the past three films going back to two thousand thirteen man of steel two thousand sixteen Batman versus superman in Justice league that came out just last year. Apparently, they couldn't come to agreement and he's walking away. No longer going to be playing superman in the upcoming roles. I has a couple of others like he's co star in mission impossible fallout. He has a cameo should Sam. But apparently the contract talks between him in Warner Brothers just shut down. And that was the end of that the studios focusing on supergirl, which is the origin story, featuring a teen superhero. Furthermore, they say Warner Brothers isn't likely to make a solo superman film in at least several years. According to a source, so they superman kind of like JAMES BOND after they run the chorus. They wait a couple of years or decade, or whatever it is. And they revive it. And they bring the characters back and everyone gets crazy. But they normally find a new lead for that sort of thing. So in this case, it looks like Henry Cavill is out. If you

"No, I would say that after I lost her, I went through a couple years at least with therapy to three years of serious grieving and a lot of lot of crying, to be honest with you. I was trying to stop crying, but then I, this incredible guy would therapist to me. I want you to cherish the grief and thought cherish the grief. What am I gonna stop feeling as he said, cherry shit because they'll come a time or you won't be able to access it as deeply as you are. Now. I think it's good feta cherish this moment as humans. We do soley climb out the depth of the grief in if you allow yourself to go into it, that's what I've learned and you never get over. It gets better, but you never get over it. So as a result of that, I think what she gave me back was a deeper, a deeper broken heart than I ever had before. And from that came happy songs and our be songs and rock songs and some sad song. So the album has a real beautiful blend of different moods. And who did you collaborate with on it? I have an beyond the single, which the single in the video came out, I guess early this morning or last night for the track. No erase in. Right, and it's a, it's a great video.

You reach out to some people that you wanted to work with for a while I did that always wanted to work with Josh freeze on drums, so he played, Noah rayson. He played on Sunshine's Cray. I love Vinnie Yudo finicky. It was one of the best drummers in the world or because he's got a relentless pocket. And so he played a lot of music Steve for Oni played. And since I'm drummer, I have a little bit of Italy integrate drummer. You got three great ones right there, right? How come you? Did you play drums? You know, I would go out there sometimes laid out so pockets to talk about it and just sort of like, I'm never going to ever get a play these guys. Just diverting for a quick second. Here you are a drummer and all the years that you were injured near any band. Did you ever turn around to whether it be Steve Smith, right? Everybody like I've had this conversation with Steven Tyler. Stephen plays drums and often I'll watch Aerosmith and Joey Kramer also friend and I'll say to on Mike Stevens. Oh, he's up there on the riser and he's sticking his Mike and there, and he's showing you the beating that must get annoying of your singer trying to tell you what he wants to do. So did you ever do that in journey or any hit a couple of times, you know, some six, eight pockets of the old school? Six pockets. But I used to sound checks when ainsi was doing radio, I would do sound checks, you know? And that was fun playing with. I got to the drummer in journey every now, and so back to the record you, you've got those guys on drums, and then did you write all the songs yourself -brate I wrote them all with with some people in some alone, nor rayson was David spring, John five,.

"Let's get back to more with former journey singer. Steve Perry, talking about journey, his new album and a whole lot more on the trunk podcast. Let's talk about this record. So you're back traces is the name of the records. It comes out October fifth, Tober. Fifth, when in this twenty plus year hiatus did the idea. 'cause there's a story behind this year. I want you to tell it how it came about. There's a concept behind it, the formation of it. When did you first start thinking about doing it like we were talking about, you know, I really did go away and wait for the wheels to touchdown and just just let it all go with a conviction that if music came back to my heart. Great, if not all ready, live dream of dreams. Honestly, I mean, what more could I've ever been part of bigger than what we did together? So I just was okay with just moving on into the third of my life. You know, because music left my heart, and then I met this. Girl name, Kelly, Nash, and I met her through Patty Jenkins a friend of mine who of course director for wonder, woman and monster. Now she's doing the new wonder woman. She's just a very soulful writer director patios, and I'm hanging out with Patti and she's doing this thing for lifetime called five, which is about a woman who has breast cancer, and she has all these people around her actors who have cancer because that's how Patty role. She likes to get this authentic sort of like environment for her actors and one of them have to be this girl as the cameras going across this, this patio scene in the hospital. We'll stop stop spill back who said, oh, that's Kelly. Nash I said, who's Kelly? Nash? She's a PHD psychologist. She best cats, you know. And I said, well, wow, there was something I don't know what it was just something rang the Bella my heart, and I not felt that probably ever like this. So I said to you. For Email, and she knows I don't do that. She side to I said, would you sit an Email that your friends Stephen left to take a coffee? Or you know, maybe I need to start going to a new shrink or sub because the psychotic go to hurt. And she says, I will, yeah, but something I should tell you, I I said, what's she said? She wasn't remission, but came back in her bones and isn't long since she's kind of fighting for her life. You know, at that moment I decided maybe I should change my mind about this. My head said, you don't need to get into this and get to know somebody loose some more people. You kinda pull him back from the edge of life. Right? And then my heart said, bullshit bullshit you, you send that Email and my head tonight. Art went send Email. So I listen to my heart and Senate. She got back to me about a couple of weeks later on Email, and then we talked on the phone. I think the first time we talked to fund must've been four, five hours on the phone, and then we went. To dinner. We were inseparable after that. It's just there was a connection I never experienced before and how long ago we talk and Steve, but this opened I would say six years, six or seven years. She passed away about five mil or five years..

"Honestly, you did. You did so. So you didn't right? You to Sing Tao, sir. You know, I, I had to let go when the conviction that if was to come back to my heart again, that would be fine if it didn't. I'd already live the dream of dreams. Honestly, I mean, we hit accomplished so much as a group together and I to let it go completely to see what would happen because I was like a like a rung out spun juice left in me, and you know, you gotta know that when I was a kid, I loved music. Anything else? I mean, it saved my life. When I play those old forty fives and get into those songs and listen to those rhythms and those voices. And that songwriting, it was a place like go in. My family was breaking up at that time father so nominally child. So I lived in the fantasy those forty five. So I brought that with me when I joined the band and brought that love for that. And when it started to leave me, I got scared. You know what's interesting, Steve. You talk about how music saved your life at that point. It sounds like when you left the band, if you hadn't music, would have destroyed your life. Look, I'm not complaining. I wanna make that clear to people. I am and I'm not taking that. I'm just saying because you are run dry and had had enough and the grind of that, but you don't have to look too far to see people not survive in the music business. And you know, we were okay, I'll speak for myself. There were some extra stimulative behaviors going back with what bans weren't there. I feel better that would have been if there wasn't even do maybe not me or not. I'm not saying that Mr.. Goody two shoes. I've been in the music industry. This is my thirty fifth year in radio, and the other things that I do. And I fortunately somehow, I don't know how never went down those roads. Never never at. Never did a draw exception. Totally. Okay. It was around me. And I mean, I've worked in the business my whole life. I've seen it. I get it, but I kept going with those exterior assistance behaviors, but it wouldn't have filled the whole that I knew going. So I had to just literally stop the easy way to do it. I just had to do it so and then snap your fingers and there's twenty years Balking balking and that that. love that. Yeah, but you like, 'cause you know, it almost became like this sort of mythical thing about Steve Perry. It's almost came like the Howard Hughes of rock music. Like we think we saw Steve somewhere and then aiding was there was a baseball game, and that looks like it is Steve. Giants. Right. Giant. Fun things that you just want to went to baseball every summer I go the fair. I mean, I would go on vacations. I go to movies. I do the things. Everybody else does. I needed to just get back to a life and let that be enough. How often did you in in your sort of? I'm not the the guy from journeys anymore. Those twenty years. How much were you able to go around without being recognised? Were you able to live pretty anonymously, get stopped a lot be like in the beginning it wasn't easy. See, you know what? I did a buzzed my hair really BAAs it all of buzz. I had like a windshield up front and that was you know, up the front, right? And I certainly would. This knows it did not look like me. Baseball cap, anything known just as long as you buzz the hair, your hair, you know. And plus I think I'd gained about fifty pounds, so that helped, you know. Well, that's that's fun to some good things. But I gotta say you a bunch of saints because you're sitting here, you look, great, man, you are. You are if I'm not mistaken sixty nine years old, God bless you. Man. His still here, but looking. Great. And judging from the new song sound great which will get into a second, but you clearly took care of yourself in this all this time away to. 'cause you're not rolling in here looking like a guy in..

"Well, here you go folks as promised one of the great voices of all time breaking a twenty year. Silence on my radio show on Sirius XM last week, joining me in the studio for that show here he is Steve Perry. Good to meet you, sir. Thank you. Thank you. Nice to be here and I appreciate you coming in and I don't. I'm sure you're picking up on this, but the love and excitement about the fact that you are back and releasing new music is is off the charts. You can feel it in the air. You really get here picking up on that right picking up. It's just overwhelming to be honest with you, who knew. I didn't know I have been isolated for so long. I just didn't pay attention that you know, but NAMA social media kinda got yes. Guess suddenly overnight and Harry's on Twitter. Out of Iraq and realize. Cain. But I mean, I guess the obvious question is you said your isolated, where were you? What were you doing? Well, you know, when when the group, the reason I left because I was just truly burnt out and I love from us. It was getting really, really questionable within my heart, and I kind of had to stop and it was no easy way to stop leaving the mothership that I had so loved and worked so hard with guys to build. And so it was tough and I didn't tell nobody just kept working as we were doing. And then all of a sudden it just kinda hit the wall. And I said, I can't do this anymore. And the band looked at me like what? And and I'm sure there was no way to drop such a bomb on the fans easily, but I just had to stop, you know, and just get out for a while. And so I did and I stopped. I realized I had to be okay on my own in my own terms without a love and ration- and applause. I kind of wanted the wheels to touchdown, to be honest with you, so you, you got to. Sort of decompress. I had to decompress. And what did you do? I mean, I mean, besides therapy. A lot of that was some whatever. You know, whatever takes to get back to where you wanna be, where you can be okay being yourself, and that's enough, you know, I mean being such an amazing ride, like we were on his like, you know, circling the earth, so to speak in some satellite and all of a sudden it's time to come through and land. So there was no easy way to come to the earth's atmosphere without burning a little bit. So you when where do you when you leave journey and and go on your own journey so to speak, help, unintended. Where do you physically go? Do you go home? Do you go away? Do you go get a home somewhere where nobody can just at that time just like, where do you go to really disconnect? Because you know, people are gonna be looking for you try to get to you. I'm sure you wanna just get away at that particular time. It went back to my hometown of Hafer, California, and I just hung out in that town. And you know, with old friends and drought drove down main street and sell my old house rose raised. Just try to reconnect. Necked I had them Harley Davidson. I used to keep in a storage unit and I used to go out on his country roads back in those days. You need a helmet and I would just drive that Harley on these one lane old country roads, one called Coyote road in fact, and just that the wind blow and just try to get some wind in my face and just think about things. Yeah. And did you did you get away from using completely lately?.

"There was a lot of hand-wringing about things I couldn't couldn't do, and when I couldn't couldn't announce that Steve Perry was coming in and then I could do it on the radio, but I couldn't do on social media. There was a lot of very conflicted messages that honestly made no sense that added a lot of tension in April -hension to me doing this interview, which doesn't make usually for a great interview, but I knew. Once the Perry came in, I know the guy but just knew as is usually the case. All that garbage goes away and you just roll with it. And that's exactly what happened in the interview. You're about to hear. So I'm glad that it went as well as it did. As I've said, many people felt and praise this as a as a as a great interview and loved what I did hear. I've not even listened to this back since I did it. The the response was so ver whelming. I just left it at that and was very contentment. Appreciative of all that. And a big part of that also goes to Steve Perry for being so cool and letting it all role, but there was believe it or not leading into this talk about while you really doesn't wanna talk about journey just can't. You can't take a guy who's in journey and put him out there. And I think you know, I think what happens is that some of the publicists in the handlers they, they start to try to do this stuff and then they realize it's it's useless and that if you're going to do interviews and promote something, there's no way anyone is going to stay away from what the person is best known for. Of course, you're going to get all your plugs in needed for the current project. I understand as a professional that is the focus. That's the reason why artist doom press. You know, I just had slash drop by my radio show a few days ago. We just did the big interview in LA, but he just dropped by a couple days ago on my volume show just came in for like ten minutes. He was in New York, and we talked about that, and I said, you must love the fact that you didn't have to do anything with. Guns and roses, all you play guitar because it was great. I said was that was that a blanket decision to not do media with GR? And he said, no, he goes, but we had nothing to sell. The tickets were sold for the concerts. We had no new product, and that's just it artists don't do and usually don't like doing any media in less. They've got something to promote. So you can't, but you can't tell someone they can't ask about something. It's it's ludicrous and there's not anybody that's gonna talk to slash now and not ask about guns. There's nobody that's going to talk to Steve Perry, not ask about journey, so although I could make it a huge focus of the interview. It was certainly a part of the interview and it had to be and people loved the conversation where this all went. So thank you all for the amazing feedback. If you heard this already at your chance to hear it again, if you're listening, live is so many were it is your chance to relive it again, if you live outside of America and we're Canada, and you can't get Sirius XM it's your chance to hear it maybe for the first time. And if you are still not a subscriber to Sirius XM, it's a chance to hear it as well. Great to have Steve Perry back. He was wonderful to talk to as your about to hear he. He walked in the studio. And the first thing he said to me on my kids was he shakes my hand. He goes, wow, I cancelled all my other interviews today. I was so excited to meet you and do this. You know your kind of a legend. He said that to me and that that was how I answered them. I go what you're saying that about me. So the highest compliment coming from Steve Perry, and I will put that on my tombstone for sure. So thank you, Steve, and I appreciated him being so cool because he wanted to do this and made an effort to do it..

"So the interview that I'm going to bring to you this week for the podcast is an interview that I can honestly say. Has gotten more reaction. Than any interview I've done in a very, very longtime universally praised as one of the best interviews I've ever done and the subject of the interview is universally loved, and I'm talking about Steve Perry, the former lead singer of journey. Now I am blown away by the reaction to this interview. I've made my name doing artist interviews and I have a great. Sort of trust in report with many of the artists. And one of my great advantages in doing the interviews that I do is the fact that I've been doing this thirty five years. So I have a connection and a history with many of them and many of them. I know quite well, and I can maybe get some things I go in some areas that may be others wouldn't think of or wouldn't normally do. So that's always a great advantage of mine. Now, in this instance, I did not have that advantage because I never met Steve Perry in my life or interviewed him. And I will tell you this. On the podcast, I was extremely concerned about this interview. Because when you do an interview. Of this magnitude. There are lot of people that get involved in it. This interview happened last Wednesday on my show on volume, and I did not book it. It was done through the talent department at Sirius XM, and I heard and found out that Steve wanted to do an interview with me. Eight is always really kind of surreal for me having done this for as long as I have when artists that I don't know know me and know my work and respect my work and request to. Requested to have me interview them. I mean, it happens quite often, and it really is quite flattering or artists will say, hey, I want to do this, or I'm going to be, I'm going to this is the first thing I'm doing. I wanna do it with Eddie. So that really means the world to me that I've arrived at that point. And that's exactly what happened was Steve Perry. Now, Steve Perry, since this interview was done has done a ton of interviews. He's got a new record coming out and he is made the rounds. But the context is important here because this was really the first thing he did. This was the first anyone had heard from him in about twenty years. And I was concerned because I hate doing interviews with conditions. I won't. If if I'm doing interview for my own programs, whenever I can help it, I will turn down interviews if there are conditions, meaning being told you can talk about this. You can't talk about that because you the audience. It just looks like I'm not doing my job on ever. Forget. Zack wild had just been booted from Ozzie, and he was had already been booked to come on my show and I got a call from publicist saying, listen, I know you have Zac coming on. You can't talk about Ozzy and him being out of Ozzy. I was like, what are you kidding me? Like my audience would destroy me if I didn't, and I passed on. That interview is as close as a friend Zack is I couldn't look ridiculous and Zach didn't even know anything about it. Of course that I couldn't ask that. And why passed into later on when I told him so it doesn't. It makes me look bad. It makes whatever platform I am on look bad. If you can't ask questions and I will be honest leading into this interview..

To, stay home and sleep with my own bet he I bet it was hard as hell for him to be home just as hard as well and he even mentioned it like he, wants to be relevant like I think, that there's, something in people where you don't you know you known for this thing and now you're, years away from it and it's you when you come back, you're there's a, fear that it won't be relevant right I just. I really looking forward social media kid Door so we're hoping he's. Going, to be in here in person and just a couple of weeks which is exciting and you. Know he actually touched on it I didn't want to really. Go there over the phone but you had mentioned it yesterday, and we wondered if it was something that will come up he was with a woman in. Kelly who had brain, cancer, and it was a brainer bride I read. Someone? Was saying breast cancer this morning okay mental look I, thought it was but I remembered, the story from some other reading I'd done and it was. Like he met someone who was sick already and then you, know you would think you'd go. I'm here to be your friend but I cannot, start. A relationship Ill but that's the. Way ended up for him and, so he loved someone who passed Breast cancer so anyway he. Referenced her, so I mean maybe that'll, come up in the live stuff or maybe. Not I mean you know who knows I had a chance to review the materials that we were given, after mentions it himself in in some of. This about his, story and he said he had to go to therapy in order to work through it and I'm not surprised that, was probably hard and he said I now deeply understand the meaning of it's better to. Have. Loved and lost than never to have, loved at, all whom, in that'll be a nice point that you guys. Can can, share of loan. Bike yeah but, when he comes in the studio I mean you know you.
