Why doesn't Steve Perry sing anymore?


He doesn't have to have the band. He has such a great voice. I don't know why he disappeared. I just watched some asian sing with the band Journey, WTF?

A well chronicled bout of throat cancer would be my guess.

I didn't read anything about throat cancer. I also had no idea that he was 62/63 yrs old!

Article from Jan 2012...says he's recording but likely won't tour again. Interesting take by Neal Schon at the bottom on the R&R Hall of Fame and if Journey will ever get in...(I'm sure they will one day...)

My guess would be that he just can't hit those high notes he used to hit so flawlessly anymore

Is this news to you? The asian has been there for 15 years or whatever.

I believe he's still performing, just not the Journey tunes anymore for the reason stated above. Apparantly he's too proud to have the band tune down a 1/2 step.

Ethnic slurs are typically frowned upon here. You may want to keep it in mind for future reference.

Is it really okay to use this term on TD? Could you drop the N bomb and not get in trouble?

Your post was the first time the word "asian" was used in this thread.

In terms of describing someone from Asia, I would hope it's ok. Like call me a Mexican if I was from Mexico, or a Southerner since I am from the South.

I would hope calling him a Filipino would be ok by the logic, but not a whereverese since he's not from wherever.

I would hope using the terms as a weapon or as a 'sly' sort of barb, then the poster should be berated.
