Today is the 45th anniversary of Steve Perry’s first appearance, in concert, with Journey. It happened at The Old Waldorf in San Francisco. I had many adventures with this band and a few unique ones with Steve too, so I thought you might like to hear an interview I did with him shortly after he joined the band circa February/March 1978. Paul Natkin’s photo of Steve is from August 5th 1979 at Comisky Park. This was The Loop’s “Day In The Park” Concert.
