According to keyboardist Jonathan Cain,  former Journey vocalist Steve Perry will join his former bandmates for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this April.  Cain let the news out in an interview with the Dayton Daily News telling the outlet, “The ceremony is the first time we’re going to get to  see Steve Perry in a long time, so that’ll be fun.”  “As far as we know, he’s just going to accept the award and then skedaddle,” he added. “That’s all I know, unless something changes. Arnel is going to represent very well, like he always does.”  Cain is referring to current Journey singer Arnel Pineda who has been with the group for over 10 years. “Arnel has been consistently on the road for 10 years now,” pointed out Cain. “I don’t think any singer in the band has stayed on the road as long as Arnel has. When we think back to the Steve Perry days, he wasn’t in the band for 10 years straight, faithfully being the road singer.”

The 32nd annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place for the third time at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, NY on Apri. 7th. The ceremony will be broadcast on Sirius XM radio and an edited version will air later on HBO.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
