5: Steve Perry
Summary: You know the voice and you know the songs: “Any Way You Want It,” “Oh Sherrie,” and of course, the perennial fist-in-the-air power ballad (and “Sopranos” finale soundtrack) “Don’t Stop Believin'.” All those great lyrics and melodies came out of the heart, mind and larynx of one man: Steve Perry. After leaving Journey and stepping back from his successful solo career due to what he calls “PTSD,” he’s back with “Traces” (Fantasy Records). Get the full story on his long hiatus, the heartbreaking motivation that brought him back to music and much, much more.
