Former Journey frontman, Steve Perry, is making the media rounds and opening up about why he left Journey. Steve explains that there was no easy way to leave the band back in 1998.
“The reason I left is because I was just truly burned out,” (via Blabbermouth). “My love for music was getting really, really questionable within my heart, and I kind of had to stop. There was no easy way to stop, leaving the mothership that I had so loved and worked so hard with the guys to build. It was tough. I didn't tell nobody — I just kept working, and then all of a sudden, it just kind of hit the wall, and I said, 'I can't do this anymore.' The band looked at me like, 'What?'
Perry goes on to talk about why he didn't perform with Journey at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, “I haven't been in the band for quite some time,” he said. “Arnel's been in the band for almost 10 years, I think. He's a sweet kid — he's a wonderful kid. He sings his heart out every night. It's his gig."
