Former lead singer of the world renown classic rock band, Journey, Steve Perry, soprano is not doing anything currently other than leading sing a longs at US sporting events and sitting in with up and coming live acts while delving into Journey classics in 2014, current favorite Steve Perry Journey era tracks are being shared at a rapid rate to showcase Perry's flair for chart topping success as well as a penchant for album favorites. Meanwhile, Adam Lambert, Brian May & Roger Taylor continue to have added success with the upcoming European tour 2015 but what will the future hold beyond live dates? Surely, if Queen is to be viable beyond Europe, a proven success such as Steve Perry would go over far better than Adam Lambert of whom, lacks the vitality to convince long time Mercury era Queen fans he is the man for the job with such classics as "Who Wants To Live Forever", "Under Pressure", "Somebody To Love" & "I Want It All" sadly lacking substance in the arena. Steve Perry is open to suggestions and has a active fan base around the globe, reaching new fans without so much as a current single.
A current favorite is being shared online, Journey era chart toppers and album favorites are being downloaded at a giant clip freely in hopes that Steve Perry will have adequate support of him should he return to the studio and live stage spring 2015.

Go ahead, tempt yourself into listening to an American legend with a proven track record that overshadows the solo success of Adam Lambert of whom has to rely on the Mercury era Queen hits in order to boost curiousity regarding Lamberts solo efforts since being a runner up in American Idol over 5 years ago.
Steve Perry or Adam Lambert? You decide.
Uh queen toured the us and canada with a renowned and respected singer paul rodgers and barely made a ripple here. Lambert comes along and their queen tour was a smash hit. Perry has NO added value at all.
Is amazing how selfish can be the people. ''You decide with who will tour Brian & Roger.''
Sorry but no, Brian and Roger are not anyone property, are their lives and they could play with anybody they want.
You, as a fan, can attend their gigs if are interested and buy (download illegally?) their products. If you are not interested in their music with Adam don't go to any gig, is a simple as that.
So Queem + AL was a hit in the US. It certainly was in Oz!
Can't see the value of putting another old singer out front. The mainstream fans loved AL, as the Australian crowd confirmed when Brian asked what the crowd thought of the new man, So whatever the original fans think might not matter so much. I thought he did good job as a fill-in. But that's all he was. I'm sure he knows that! And if Brian and Roger could come up with some decent material, then an album might be a lot more Queenish and sound much better than TCR did. It might have been a Paul Rodgers album, but it certainly wasn't something you could reasonably associate with the Queen catalogue.
What makes you think that anything Lambert does would be more in the Queen tradition than Paul Rodgers?
Queen are not Queen anymore with Freddie, for it was Freddie that gave the group that regal flavour and charisma.
Brian just recently announced the he and Roger only have a finite window of opportunity with Lambert, so it sounds
like at last this ridiculous partnership maybe over soon.
