The rock band Journey may truly be back! For those of you not up on your classic rock groups, Journey is an American band founded in San Francisco in 1973 by former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch. Former lead singer Perry was replaced in 1998 because he had injured his hip while hiking in Hawaii the summer prior.

Perry has recently been working again. While is last gig included a gig with Ambrosia's David Pack in 2005, more recently he collaborated on a song with the electronic band AWOLNATION for their upcoming CD. In a recent interview with Classic Rock magazine Perry said that after years of communicating through the press, he and lead guitarist Neal Schon are definitely considering a reunion. Perry stated: "We’re trying. It’s tough. I’m doing my best in that area, and I can only do so much.”

After last year's cancer scare Perry was both nostalgic and reflective in his comments. He said: "The older I get, the more I do realize how important what we had all together and how it worked. The older I get — like I said — the more I realize we brought that out of each other."

He continued: "I brought things out of them, and they certainly brought a lot of my vocal stuff out of me — just rising each other to this place that you can’t get alone. I think that’s probably the biggest chemistry thing I recognize now."

This past summer Schon revealed that he has indeed been keeping tabs and posted a link to an interview with Perry on Facebook. Additionally, Schon posted what some considered "heartfelt words" about Perry. “I hope we can can reach out to each other and connect once again,” he wrote. “We had amazing chemistry together. I love him with all the love and admiration you could even have. Steve, let’s talk soon.”
