As we told you before, former Journey frontman Steve Perry made a second surprise guest appearance with Eels over the weekend – but don’t get too excited, he's telling “Classic Rock” magazine that performances are just for fun.
And he's reiterated that there's no chance of a reunion with Neal Schon and co – despite current frontman Arnel Pineda saying he'd be welcome to reclaim his "righteous place."
"People have been putting two and two together,” says Perry. “But this wasn't about a reunion with Journey. “There is no reunion. I was just having fun."
Perry goes on to say that the surprise was half the joy. "In a world where it's hard to keep a secret,” he mused. “It felt so much fun to walk out there to an unsuspecting crowd." Eels frontman E (real name Mark Oliver Everett), had introduced Perry at both performances by explaining he'd walked away from Journey because "it didn't feel right." "I couldn't have put it better,” said Perry. “That's exactly what happened. It had run its course.”
