Will Steve Perry Join Journey In Cleveland?
First off, I'm not a huge fan of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Most of us feel this way because they have a way of screwing up the nominations year after year. A band that FINALLY made the shortlist of nominees this year was Journey. They join Yes, Pearl Jam and Depeche Mode among others. It's not official yet, inductees will be announced in December, with the induction ceremony set for next April in Brooklyn.
Steve Perry left the band back in 1988. We all associate Journey with Steve Perry. He was the voice, the face, and the soul of the band. Will he join the band in Cleveland if they get inducted? That’s the question we all want answered.
Journey's Jonathon Cain says Steve Perry should perform with them if they get the final nod for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. Cain tells The Pulse of Radio (via Blabbermouth) that the door has always been open for him to join the band anytime he wanted."
This makes total sense to me. Steve Perry is Journey.....It would be another Rock And Roll Hall of Fame tragedy if he's not there. It sounds like it's all up to the former lead singer to make a decision.
If you're wondering how the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame works, let me attempt to clue you in. Each year, The foundations nominating committee selects the group of artists nominated in the performer category. Ballots are then sent to more than 600 historians, members of the music industry and artists. The five performers receiving the most votes become that year's induction class.
So, we'll have to wait and see if Journey makes the cut. I think they will, and I hope Steve Perry is with them. Stay tuned to The KRNA Morning Show for more updates!
