Could Journey be calling it quits? Maybe not, according to guitarist Neal Schon, but he’s definitely had thoughts about how he wants to go out on a sustained high note. In a new interview, he reveals that he’s open to having former lead singer Steve Perry join them band for one last go-round.

“I can’t talk about the future because I don’t have a crystal ball,” Schon told Classic Rock. “But I can say that if Steve Perry wanted to come back and do some kind of reunion tour, I think it would have to be in a time zone when we are feeling like we’re done.”

That said, Schon isn’t looking to hang up his rock n’ roll shoes any time soon.  I don’t see that happening for a long time,” he continued. “Honestly, we have a lot of life left in this band. But if we were to do a farewell tour, then I would reach out to him — and some of the earlier members of the band. I’d try to get that family type tour together.”

Schon also said that current lead singer Arnel Pineda would not have a problem with the idea of Perry sitting in with his old band. Based on Perry’s recent comments on the relationship between himself and Schon, it seems Pineda’s not in much danger.
