    The program is set to air Sunday, October 7.

    Steve has just simultaneously launched his new social media platforms, which you can follow at the following links:

    Just saw this. I'm interested to hear what he sounds like, these days. I was under the assumption that his voice was shot.

    Love hearing this news! I knew he was up to something, but he kept it a secret for such a long time. I have his solo albums, including his late 80s shelved disc. I want to hear a sample, for sure.

    I'm guessing that the "I Need You" is the Beatles song, but since Perry has a co-write, he added something to it?

    It's an interesting line up of collaborators. But I suspect that they spelled Randy Goodrum's name incorrectly.

    There should be a group for 70s singers that lost an octave or two over the years. Maybe it could be like a support group.

    I heard a couple of songs from the Who tour of last year and I couldn't believe it was Roger Daltry singing....

    so, yeah.

    everyone but Robert Wyatt.

    There's a recording from a couple of years ago where he sounded fine singing Sam Cooke. He was playing it safe, which is always smart.

    I think he's smart enough to know his limits, unlike many out there who embarrass themselves trying to hold onto something they lost instead of embracing what they still have.

    Likely a different song. Adding something to it would not allow him to take credit, from what I understand.

    Doesn't mean they can't still sing.

    I don't believe I suggested they couldn't.

    No, but you suggested they need support.

    Not support to sing. But imagine if you made your name singing in your highest reaches, and then you have hits you have to sing in that range for the rest of your days. It slips away for most people as they age and surely did for many of the greats of the 70s. I wonder if they ever talked to others in the same boat. Or would want to?

    Sure thing. I knew what you meant. Yep, they all deal with it eventually.

    Well that co-credit is a head-scratcher. Maybe it's a medley of the Beatles song and the song "I Need You" by this Steve Perry.

    I don't hear any of you asking if You Belong To Me is a Michael McDonald era Doobies cover yet.

    There are a whole lot of songs called "You Belong to Me" out there (and indeed, a whole lot of songs called "I Need You"). I would have said Elvis Costello, myself.

    Steve Perry Records Beatles Cover for Future Solo Record

    October 31, 2011

    Former Journey frontman Steve Perry is going to be recording new music soon, but it won't be with his old bandmates. The singer says he's working on a solo album, but it's been a challenging process since he's been out of the music business for so long.

    Perry tells the Associated Press that he's recorded three cover songs and played them for a few close friends. One is a Beatles tune, but he wouldn't offer any clue as to which one, nor would he hint at what the other two covers are.
    This article doesn't mean that any of those tunes made it to the final track listing, but...

    Where they gather every Thursday day night to throw darts at a poster of Mickey Thomas for 90 minutes.
