A Tough Journey for Steve


Former Journey frontman Steve Perry revealed that he’s successfully had surgery for skin cancer.

Perry posted to fans on his official blog 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.

Music wise,  Steve has been working for several years on a proposed solo album, which may finally see release in 2013.
