Well, here we are again. The yearly ritual known as the "BIRTHDAY."
This year I can't believe I'm, "45" .... AGAIN....!!
I'd like to thank EVERYONE who sent well wishes to me for my birthday, and EVERYONE who showed up at the Walk of Fame presentation last Friday the 21st. What a magic feeling it was to see you all again.

Seeing the guys in the band was a celebration just like the old days when music was what it was all about. When we were taking pictures in front of the star, Jon Cain was on my right. I said to him, "Do you know what that is down there on that side walk? That's some great songs. Congratulations Jon." Ross Valory was our cello of bass players. It's was fun watching him clowning again. It was really great to see Steve Smith and Aynsley Dunbar after all these years. What perfect drummers these guys were for the music of Journey. I told them both congratulations and that they both busted their asses for this. I told Neal congats' when we were standing there together making fun of "Heckle and Jeckle," or known to their fans as, Mark and Brian from KLOS.
Oh, and by the way, after M&B's on the AIR complete violation of my privacy and still never getting my number, I'd like to make one thing very clear. I thought about this award ceremony for a long time. For the longest time I thought it would be best that I not go, do to our re-break-up in May of 98. I knew it was going to be my decision and my decision ALONE and that no one could sway me into going or not going! After I decided to attend, on the morning of Jan. 20th I headed north to L.A. As I got closer, I turned on KLOS and heard M&B and what they were up to. I QUICKLY turned them OFF so I would still want to attend our event. I'm so glad I went. It was a real thrill to hear all those fans sing "Na Na's" and "Don't Stop Believin'" AND THEN, they sang Happy Birthday to me. Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!!
On Saturday the 22nd I went back to take another look at the star for my birthday and for all my departed relatives. As I was watching people looking at the star, I saw two girls hand their camera to a friend and then they quickly laid down on the sidewalk one on each side of the star. I jumped out of my hiding spot and asked, "Can I lay down, too?" At first they were shocked I was there, and then we took this picture. I took some more pix with a few more fans then figured I better hit the road back. It was a nice birthday.
Thanks for all the donations this year on behalf of my birthday!
I really want to thank ALL the fans all over the world that made the Hollywood Walk of Fame Star possible.......... It really belongs to you.
Thanks for making me a part of it.
All the very best to you and yours,
January 24, 2005*

Steve Perry Autographed
Journey 1980 Japan Tour Jacket...
AUCTION ENDED SUNDAY (7/10/05) AT 1:31 P.M. EST
I've signed a Jacket which was owned by Jackie Villanueva. Jackie was one of the most devoted and hardest working guys in our road crew from the very early years through the time that I was in Journey. Through an old childhood friend named Larry, I met Jackie. Without them, I would have never met Journey's Manager, Herbie Herbert, and wouldn't have had the opportunity to become the lead singer of Journey. Jackie's brother, John Villanueva, has donated Jackie's Tour Jacket and I have signed it for this e-bay auction. All funds will be sent to the Kaiser Hospice Services who helped Jackie. This is a one of a kind "Japan Tour 1980" jacket. Thanks for your contributions.
Sincerely..........Steve Perry, June 30, 2005
