Steve Perry

Perry's singing has garnered acclaim from prominent musical peers and publications. Queen guitarist Brian May said: "Perry is a truly luminous singer, in my opinion—a voice in a million." Sony record executive, former American Idol judge, record producer, and musician Randy Jackson described Perry's as "the golden voice," and opined that, "Other than Robert Plant, there's no singer in rock that even came close to Steve Perry." "The power, the range, the tone—he created his own style. He mixed a little Motown, a little Everly Brothers, a little Zeppelin." He has been described as "The Voice," a moniker originally coined by friend and former chart peer Jon Bon Jovi.

Greg Prato of AllMusic wrote: "If only one singer could be selected as the most identifiable with '80s arena rock, it would have to be Journey's Steve Perry." Colleague John Franck praised Perry's as a "soaring, whale of a voice." He was voted among the ten greatest rock singers of all time in a 2009 Classic Rock reader poll.[30] Rolling Stone ranked Perry No. 76 in "The 100 Greatest Singers of All Time," reflecting the magazine's editorial opinion. They lauded his "technical skills," as well as his "pure tone and passionate sincerity."
