Steve Perry undergoes skin cancer treatment
Former Journey singer opens up to fans."Three weeks ago a routine mole was taken off my face and the lab report came back Melanoma skin cancer,” wrote Perry on his Fan Asylum page. "I've had two surgeries in two weeks to remove all the cancer cells and I've been told they think they got it all and no other treatments are required."
The vocalist has been fairly inactive in recent years, but maintains he will begin writing and recording new material "at his own pace" from the studio in his California home.
"I'm finishing that room up and I've written a whole bunch of ideas and directions, all over the map, in the last two, three years...So I plan on getting in the studio at some point and start trying to track these things and see where they go" said Perry in an interview with Billboard last year.
