I think Steve Perry was getting tired of playing with Journey around this time.

This was also the time period where I think he exerted the most influence on the band with the Raised on Radio album.

Soon after he and the band would split up...

"I'll Be Alright Without You" is a song by the American rock band Journey on their 9th studio album, Raised on Radio. It peaked at #7 on the Adult Contemporary chart and #26 on the Mainstream Rock chart, and it reached #14 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was written and composed by Jonathan Cain, Steve Perry, and Neal Schon. Released as the fourth US single from Raised on Radio Journey keyboard player Jonathan Cain admitted the song was born out of his and lead singer Steve Perry's ongoing personal traumas. Perry had split up with his longtime girlfriend and Cain was going through a divorce.

I am glad he dated again..

Steve Perry revealed that his late girlfriend, Kellie Nash, made him promise not to return to “isolation” if anything happened and they weren’t together anymore.

The former Journey singer had spent nearly two decades out of the spotlight by the time he met psychologist Nash, but she died of cancer 18 months after their relationship commenced.

“She was fighting breast cancer when I met her for three years, and going through chemo, which was the only thing you could do back then,” Perry told Q104.3 in a recent interview. “I couldn’t separate myself from her – i wanted to be wherever she was. I lost her. We were together for a year and a half, and that year and a half felt like five, because it was so intense together.”

“One night we were talking and she said, ‘Honey, I need to ask you a question. … If something was to ever happen to me, make me a promise that you won’t go into isolation again. … I think it would make this all for naught.’ And I thought, ‘All for naught? That is such a huge statement,’" he recalled. "I mean, she’s looking at the arc of her life, and then meeting together, and then maybe us not being together, and her going. This like a huge, huge moment, and I just said, ‘I promise.’”

Since announcing his comeback album Traces, Perry has explained that he had lost his love for music while at the top of his game with Journey, and had considered the possibility that it would never return. In the new interview, he recalled how, after Nash died in 2012, he spent three years in “serious grieving” along with “psychological assistance from some professionals,” but noted that he had gotten "through that process and I started writing music. I think it opened my heart up again.”

Perry added that he hadn’t been able to force himself to speak at the funerals of his mother or grandmother, but found his voice for Nash’s memorial. “I got up there and I just said, ‘When I met Kelly I felt like I was the luckiest guy in the world,’" he said. "I had done some cool things in my life … but I gotta tell you, it dwarfed in comparison to meeting this girl.”
