The Associated Press reports Perry, who rarely does detailed interviews, spoke to them by phone last week to discuss the project. If the resurgence of Journey and the band's hit "Don't Stop Believin'" may have given fans hope of a reunion, Perry says that's probably not going to happen.
"It's like any emotional, committed relationship. At some point, they seem to all have a shelf life and bands are no exception," he said. "Life has moved us all on in different places in our lives. They're doing what they're doing — they have been since '98. And I've been doing what I'm doing, which is living my life and having a personal life."
