Journey’s Neal Schon Tries To Make Peace With Steve Perry
Journey has continued their musical journey without the powerful pipes of former frontman Steve Perry, but an animosity reportedly existed. While guitarist Neal Schon is apparently ready to let bygones be, well, bygones after he reached out to Perry via a recent Facebook post.
Perry left in 1998, but Schon posted an interview with the former frontman saying “Great Steve Perry interview.”
“I hope we can can reach out to each other and connect once again. We had amazing chemistry together,” continued Schon. “I love him with all the love and admiration you could even have. Steve let’s talk soon.”
Maybe the recent loving feelings are because Perry–who has gone through major health issues for awhile now–was recently treated for skin cancer.
“Three weeks ago a routine mole was taken off my face and the lab report came back Melanoma skin cancer,” confessed Perry. “I’ve had two surgeries in two weeks to remove all the cancer cells and I’ve been told they think they got it all and no other treatments are required.”
Including the silent treatment from his former band mates.
