Journey Star Says Steve Perry Passed The Torch 2017 In Review

Journey Star Says Steve Perry Passed The Torch was a top 17 story of May 2017: Journey drummer Steve Smith says in a new interview that former Steve Perry passed the torch to the band's current singer Arnel Pineda during their Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction.

Smith spoke to the Las Vegas Weekly ahead of the band's Sin City residency and was asked about what interaction he had with Perry during the Rock Hall event.

He responded, "Whatever you saw on stage was it! (Laughs.) I think some of the guys saw him backstage for a little bit, but I just saw him onstage. It was great to see him. It had been since 2005, when we got a star in Hollywood - that was the last time I saw him. So it was good to see him, and he was very gracious. I thought he gave a beautiful speech, thanking the band and the management and the fans."

Smith then added, "he acknowledged Arnel Pineda, which that was really a beautiful moment. It really makes it clear that he's passing the torch to Arnel - he's the lead singer in Journey, and he's doing an amazing job. He's a tremendous singer and a really compelling frontman." Read more here.
