1981 Steve Perry 8X10 Publicity Photos

Up through 1982 Steve Perry had the most perfect and iconic voice in rock. No-one else could hit those crystal clear highs with some awesome ooh's, ah's and woo's.

It was during the grueling 1981-1982 "Escape" tour schedule and the huge arena's in 1982 affected his voice. Clearly, it was unmistakably Steve Perry, but on the "Frontiers" album and everything else since the voice has gotten slightly gravelly. Steve's voice was still far superior to anyone else on radio.

Here are two photo's from the 1981-1982 Escape Tour...

After "Escape" became huge success and hit #1 the logo changed to the one used on the album "Escape" only tilting it so it is readable as shown in this 8X10 of the band...
