I was listening to Journey a long time before Steve joined with Neil. I think I still have those big black round things with grooves of those sessions. But they didn't evolve into the supergroup until after Steve & Jonathan joined the group. Steve brought the most to the table with his vocal talent and his lyrics, & Jonathan finished it off.
Now to the facts. Anyone that knows anything about singing will tell you that it's not just the ability to hit notes that makes a singer. It's also the ability to hold those notes and give tone to those notes.
Steve AusJus (a dipping sauce for beef)can hit notes and is good at it, and a recording studio can do wonders to a singers vocal tract to repair lame vocals. When I saw Journey in concert with him, I left wondering what the hell the band was thinking when they hired this guy. Yes he could hit the notes, but his tone and sustaining quality weren't even close.
Steve Perry is the man. FTLOSM is a great recording of soulful, energy charged, flat out rock n roll songs from a SINGER/ songwriter of great talent. Where has Journey been without him? Nowhere. Pawning off some fake Steve Perry wannabe as the real thing. I haven't seen them play since a state fair in 2001.
I would purchase anything new from Steve Perry, especially if it was a new Journey album
