Steve Perry Stopped Believing For a While

But he's back! Former Journey lead singer Steve Perry is about to release his first new album in over two decades. Perry talks about why he left Journey in 1987 at the height of their fame, and the difficult personal period that followed shortly after, during which he couldn't listen to music. He also shares the story of his life-changing relationship with a woman named Kellie Nash who Perry says made him feel loved for the first time. His new record Traces marks the fulfillment of a promise he made to Nash before she died in 2012.
