Journeys Steve Perry Releases First New Song in 20 Years My Love for Music Returned

Journeys Steve Perry Releases First New Song in 20 Years My Love for Music Returned

Steve Perry is back on his musical journey.

The former Journey singer, 69, is releasing a new album, Traces, on October 5 — and just dropped a single, “No Erasin’.” The track marks his first new music in 20 years.

Perry performed in Journey from 1977 to 1987 and 1995 to 1998.

Opening up about returning to the music world, Perry tweeted on Wednesday, “Years ago, I disappeared. There were many reasons, but mainly… my love for music had suddenly left me. I knew that simply stopping, was what I had to do. If music was ever to return to my heart, then and only then I would figure out what to do. If not… so be it. For I had already lived the dream of dreams.”

He continued, “Many years passed. One day, I began sketching some musical ideas with the creative freedom that I was the only one who would ever hear them. One song led to many. My love for music had returned. Then another beautiful thing happened. I found love.”

Perry dated Kellie Nash for two years before she died in December 2012 after being diagnosed with breast cancer, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He added, “My precious Kellie gave me a life I never knew I had… I now deeply understand the meaning of: ‘It’s better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.’ ”

Perry concluded, “May of 2015, I began recording. These songs are special to me. I respectfully ask that you please listen to them and whatever they make you feel, I thank you for listening.”

Perry told The Hollywood Reporter in 2013, “We were so good together that I don’t think we could recreate it again. I think it was a magical time for music and to be in the music business. But once I stopped, I didn’t want to start back up again. I did become a bit of a recluse.”

Kris Jenner Hopes Model Who Collapsed at Kylie’s Birthday Is Okay That Was Past My Bedtime

Kris Jenner Hopes Model Who Collapsed at Kylie’s Birthday Is Okay That Was Past My Bedtime

Kris Jenner may have been at her daughter Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party, but she missed the night’s biggest action.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians momager, 62, called into the Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O on Tuesday to spill details about her famous family. And while discussing Kylie’s big party, Kris opened up about Tammy Hembrow — the Australian Instagram model and influencer who was photographed leaving the party face-down on a stretcher before being loaded into an ambulance by paramedics.

“You guys party hard!” Kris joked, before explaining that she wasn’t around to see the incident.

“I hope she’s okay. I actually left before any of that happened because I typically go to bed at nine o’clock so it was way past my bedtime,” she said. “I’m not sure , I still don’t know, I asked several people… I’m so happy she was okay… I honestly didn’t know who it was when she got stretchered out.”

On Monday, Hembrow posted a YouTube video detailing her side of the story.

After reassuring fans that she’s doing better, Hembrow explained that she was “running on pretty much 30 hours no sleep” going into the evening. “I was struggling to stay awake, even when I was getting my hair and makeup done — I was literally sitting there falling asleep,” she said. “I could barely keep my eyes open.”

Hembrow, who has two kids, said she had been throwing herself into her work “more than ever” in the wake of her split from fiancé Reece Hawkins. “I think because of the breakup I’ve been trying to keep myself busy and not really taking time to think about how I’m actually feeling,” she said. “I probably definitely shouldn’t have been drinking because of how jet lagged I was, because of how exhausted I was, and I already wasn’t feeling well at all.”

“So yeah, I pretty much collapsed,” she continued. “Honestly, I’m already super, super embarrassed about it. I read a quote yesterday and it said, ‘Make time for rest or your body will force you to slow down in ways you probably won’t like.’ And I feel like that couldn’t be more true.”

Aside from that incident, Kris told Kylie and Jackie O that Kylie’s party went off with out a hitch.

The whole KarJenner krew was there, including Kylie’s sisters — Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian

Michael J Foxs Wife Tracy Pollan Admits She Was Turned Off at First He Was Very Cocky

Michael J Foxs Wife Tracy Pollan Admits She Was Turned Off at First He Was Very Cocky

Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan may have 30 years of married bliss under their belt, but it wasn’t love at first sight for the couple.

Sitting down with PEOPLE for this week’s cover story, Pollan admits that it took some time for her to warm up to Fox.

The two met in 1985 when Pollan auditioned and landed a role on Family Ties. While Pollan and Fox quickly became friends, the actress was dating actor Kevin Bacon and wasn’t immediately smitten by her costar.

“He was very cocky,” says Pollan. “He was funny, but he was cocky.”

Pollen departed Family Ties after one season, but met again on the film Bright Lights Big City two years later.

Still interested, Fox, 57, immediately asked Pollan, 58, about her relationship status during her audition.

“I said, ‘How’s your boyfriend?’ And she said, ‘We’re not together anymore,’ ” recalls Fox.

He asked her to lunch, they started dating and they married a year later.

“When you play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” says Fox. “I always win.”

In 1991, Fox was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative disorder causing tremors, stillness and, ultimately, the loss of motor skills. Pollan stood by him as he slowly came to grips with the diagnosis, struggled with alcoholism and became a powerful activist.

Together, they’ve raised a close-knit family and share son Sam, 29, twin daughters Schuyler and Aquinnah, 23, and daughter Esmé, 16.

Asked about the key to a long marriage, Pollan says, “Just give each other the benefit of the doubt. He assumes I’m doing the best I can.”

Adds Fox, “Find the best things about you and the best things about life and celebrate them.”
