Ohhhh Sherry...!!! I know, I know but the guy has pipes that can't be replicated.

I've always wanted to do some cool acoustic covers of a few of the Journey songs - I just can't seem to find the right key!

Steve Perry? Wow, what a legendary voice. He is supposed to be working on new music.

"Melody" is probably my all time favorite song from him.

Yeah, didn't he actually co-write many of those tunes with Schon as well? Not many good melodies in those hits though!... (from both a lead vocal AND lead guitar point of view).

Fantastic singer! I like most of the hits, but haven't delved into much of their other album material. I would also like to check some Journey stuff from before Steve joined the band.

Ruined a good band but sold lots of records and created some cool hits. I will take anything from the band called abraxas compared to any Journey with Perry. I like Greg Rolie's voice much better but that's just me.

I doubt you will find many people who admit to liking Perry here.
While we're at it, let's review some similar (ahem) TGP revelations I collected over the years.
Warning: the following is just some tongue-in-cheek trolling!

Apparently...

  • Buckingham/Nicks ruined Fleetwood Mac
  • Dennis DeYoung penned Styx tunes are all fluff
  • Genesis was over when Peter Gabriel and/or Steve Hackett left
  • AC/DC was a pop act after Bon Scott passed
Ok, exaggerated trolling over, but you get the idea. I don't actually believe those things, but those sentiments have been passed around here for awhile. Guitarists do love their traditions and take pride in "rock" credentials. It's not at all a bad thing, but you have to run opinions here through that filter.

Love Mr Perry, great voice and great performer!

But then again love 80's Fletwood Mac and Genesis too! Why do so many guitarists put down pop music?

Wonderful singer. My goodness... What a voice/talent.
Journey featured some remarkable musicians w/ little real focus/personality before his inclusion.
YMMV, but Perry was very special (as is Neal's guitar playing, Rolie & Cain's keyboard work, Dunbar and Smith's kit playing, Valory's bass playing; their combined background/harmony vocals).
