Nobody's perfect. Everyone slides here and there, and they have their ups and downs. When they are down, that is not the time to step all over them.
I'm just getting older and better.
Beyond the Thunder is the closest I've recorded to an acoustic thing.
The heavy guitars are the ones that sound good. They are not that comfortable, but they do sound great.
There has been the biggest black cloud following me around. People believe it's all my fault that Steve is not here. He has always had an open door, and he doesn't choose to do this any more.
I am not a pop musician; I don't want to play bubble-gummy pop stuff.
The best part was watching Journey grow into this monster. The band was huge, playing these enormous gigs.
What I have is a bunch of really hungry, amazingly talented guys that can kick anybody's rear end.
The world now knows that Steve Perry is welcome to come and sing with us anytime he wants.
When I go out with Journey, it is a complete cakewalk. I can afford my own bus.
I've never done a solo tour. I feel like getting out there and doing that.
In a lot of aspects it's cooler that we don't have a lot of really overly famous people in the band.
During the 1970s and 1980s Gibson did use my likeness, but we never signed anything. This new Signature model is the first time we struck a formal written deal for a guitar with my name on it.
I'm not a guy to go in the studio and spend months, let alone years, like some people do. I cannot even be in the studio for a month, it will drive me nuts.
I haven't stopped playing. If you play all the time, then your chops are up and you tend to grow.
