Journey Singer Hopes To Meet Steve Perry At Rock Hall


(Classic Rock) Arnel Pineda is hoping that his Journey bandmates win induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame next year - because it might give him the chance to finally meet former singer Steve Perry.

Pineda has fronted the band since 2007, but he's never met his classic-era predecessor, who bowed out after a second stint in 1998. Journey were named on the 2017 induction shortlist in October. Keyboardist Jonathan Cain said recently that Perry would be welcome to return to the band for the ceremony.

Pineda tells TMZ: "I'm hoping to at least shake his hand. I haven't had the chance for the past nine years. I've never met him. I hope they get inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, so maybe I get to see him."

The Filipino singer accepts he won't enter the Rock Hall himself. "It's only for the originals," he says. "I'm okay with that." Read more here.
