Steve Perry's Promise To His Late Girlfriend

Steve Perry sat down for a radio interview this week where he discussed, what else, music. From his reason for leaving Journey decades ago, to his reason for coming back into the spotlight. And it's not for the reason you might think. Perry wasn't missing music, or the rockstar paycheck. It was his late girlfriend who inspired him to return to the stage. She died in 2012, after battling breast cancer, and she made Perry promise that he wouldn't go back into isolation after she died. Watch this interview, and see how passionate and sincere the former Journey frontman is. You might just fall in love with him all over again.
