Happy 72nd birthday today (January 22nd) to former-Journey frontman, the great Steve Perry. 2021 finds Perry riding high on the success of his fall 2018 comeback album, Traces, which is his first Top 10 solo debut. The album entered the Billboard 200 Albums Chart at Number Six and the magazine's Current Rock Album Chart at Number Two.
Last month, Steve Perry released a revamped version of the Traces album, titled, Traces: Alternate Versions And Sketches.
Traces marked a long awaited return from Perry, who is best remembered for his tenure in Journey in which he wrote or co-wrote such standards as “Don't Stop Believin',” “Any Way You Want It,” “Who's Crying Now?” “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart),” “When You Love A Woman,” “Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin,'” “Open Arms,” “Be Good To Yourself,” “Stone In Love,” “Still They Ride,” “Feeling That Way,” and “Lights.” Perry scored a solo Top 10 hit with 1984's “Oh, Sherrie,” which peaked at Number Two.
