On Thursday Journey Would Reunite With Steve Perry for Final Tour was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Journey mainman Neal Schon says the only way Steve Perry could return would be as part of their farewell tour. And he insists current singer Arnel Pineda would remain part of the band if that happened.
Perry fronted the AOR giants from 1977 to 1987 then again from 1995 to 1998. He was replaced by Steve Augeri followed by Jeff Scott Soto. Pineda was hired in 2007 after Schon heard him performing Journey tracks on YouTube.
Schon, speaking at the premiere of band documentary Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey, tells the Huffington Post: "I don't think there's any way not to have Arnel at this point. Who can say never? You can never say it's never going to happen," he said. "But if that situation ever came up, I think it would be the both of them. And I think it would be at the point where it's a farewell tour, and we're done. That's the only appropriate way to go about it." - more on this story
