Recent activity by former Journey frontman Steve Perry has sparked speculation that he could possibly be preparing to return to work, after effectively retiring from music performance in 1995.
On Jul. 18, Toad the Wet Sprocket revealed a video clip of Perry singing along with them in their studio.
“What do you say when Steve Perry crashes your tour rehearsal and wants to sing??? YES!” the band said. Bassist Dean Dinning later added: “Unbelievable. I took out my ear monitor and there it was – that voice! Me and Steve Perry sharing the mic singing Toad songs. What a life this is.”
Then, on Jul. 20, a post on the Steve Perry (Journey) Facebook fan page included two pictures reportedly taken during a TV shoot, with the caption: “Interview with Steve will be on CBS Sunday Morning Oct. 7. Steve went to Hanford for the interview with Hart Images Media Services.”
