Former Journey frontman Steve Perry revealed that he's successfully had surgery for skin cancer. Perry posted to fans on his official blog http://www.fanasylum.com/steveperry/ that it seems as though he's luckily out of the woods: "Three weeks ago a routine mole was taken off my face and the lab report came back Melanoma skin cancer. I've had two surgeries in two weeks to remove all the cancer cells and I've been told they think they got it all and no other treatments are required."
In the blog, Perry goes into detail about his year-and-a-half whirlwind romance with late psychologist Kellie Nash as she was battling stage four breast cancer.
Steve Perry has been working for several years on a proposed solo album, which may finally see release in 2013. He explained to us that that when Journey was recording such classic albums as Evolution, Departure, Escape, and Frontiers, the band simply kept their eye on the finish line while in the studio: "You have to get in, do it, get out, and leave it alone, for a minute -- move on. Otherwise, creatively, we will re-digest, re-think, re-do, and really believe in our hearts we can do better. And sometimes we can. It won't necessarily be better -- it'll be different. And some times that is better -- sometimes it's not."
