Neal Schon to Steve Perry: ‘Let’s Talk Soon’

It’s been more than 15 years since Steve Perry left Journey for the second (and seemingly final) time, but the fans haven’t forgotten him — and neither, it seems, has guitarist Neal Schon.

Schon took to Facebook in a reflective mood last Wednesday (July 24), linking to an hourlong interview with Perry from January of 2012 (embedded above) and offering a few kind words about his former bandmate, with whom he helped create some of the most enduring hits — and most infamous arguments — of ’80s rock. “Great Steve Perry interview,” wrote Schon. “I hope we can can reach out to each other and connect once again. We had amazing chemistry together.”

While few would disagree with regards to Schon and Perry’s chemistry, there’s also no denying the bad blood that’s long existed between Perry and the other members of the band. Still, some fans have continued to hold out hope for a follow-up to his short-lived ’90s reunion with the group, and there’s no doubt they’ll be heartened by Schon’s message of friendship. “I love him with all the love and admiration you could even have,” concluded his post. “Steve, let’s talk soon.”
