The former front man for Journey, Steve Perry, called us today around 8:30. (You can listen to the whole interview on today's podcast, posted at the end of this blog.) He currently lives in Del Mar, but grew up with immigrant parents in San Diego with his Portuguese family. They worked in the fishing industry at that time. Perry's Mom use to listen to Sam Cooke on the radio which inspired him to start singing. Right before he was ready to quit, a guy from Columbia Records called him to ask if he wanted to be in Journey.
Dave asked, "What’s the greatest Journey video of all time?" Steve Perry said, “Don’t Stop Believing.” Dave says, "Wrong answer. It’s 'Faithfully." That made him laugh really hard.
Steve Perry has a new record coming out tomorrow (Friday), called “Traces,” so make sure to give it a listen.
Dave admitted to going down the Steve Perry wormhole on YouTube to prepare for this interview. The standout video was "Feeling That Way" from the old TV show "The Midnight Special," and introduced by the legendary Wolfman Jack! Check out his glorious hair, along the stunning vocals in the video below.

If I give you a pot brownie - will you please vote for me? Pretty please! That's what a Michigan cheerleader has been accused of doing - handing out pot brownies as bribe to win high school homecoming queen.
A 17-year-old girl got caught selling the weed snacks when someone at her school narced on her. Alas, law enforcement only recovered three of the dozen pot brownies. They're afraid the others have been consumed. You can read more about it here.
