First, happy birthday to Steve Perry, who turns 65 today, born on January 22, 1949 in Hanford, California.

He's working on music that he's clearly excited about, according to

I’ve just been writing music and seeing what I can find, you know,” Perry told Artisan News from the red carpet at Guitar Center’s Drum-Off on Jan. 18. “It’s such a new cool . . . world of music when you’re mixing electric music and rock like Muse and Imagine Dragons. I think it’s such a cool new kind of direction.

Perry has been apparently working on new music for years, and at this point we still don't know when we'll see any releases, but hopefully we won't have to wait much longer.
