Steve Perry sends wishes to Arnel Pineda; Perry returns to his old band?

Steve Perry wants to reunite with former Journey members? Did Arnel Pineda say he is giving way, should Perry decides to comeback?

Steve Perry and Arnel Pineda

Speculations have it that the old lead singer of the band 'Journey' is coming back and is out to take his old job back.

In a special feature in Fan Asylum (FA), Perry was interviewed and part of it was the highlight of his recent singing performances with the band Eels - May 25 @ The Fitzgerald Theatre in St Paul MN, May 31 @ The Lincoln Theatre in Wash D.C., and on June 11 @ The Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles CA.

FA quoted present 'Journey' band's Lead Singer Arnel Pineda saying he would gladly give way, should Perry decides to come back. Steve answered:
I don’t know who or what would make Arnel want to say such a thing. He's their Lead Singer and I only wish him all of the very best! There is no reunion.
Steve Perry has been out of the stage for like 19 years, but just recently, he's been on a series of gigs again.

In a note Steve Perry sent to FA, he cleared the rumor quite straightforward.
I'd like to make clear that the rumor that I have returned to the band Journey is totally untrue and only a rumor. Sincerely, Steve Perry
Tracking back on this rumor all the more, Ultimate Classic Rock had an article 'Arnel Pineda denies rumors he wants out of Journey'.

A letter from Pineda's representatives reads:
I am as happy to be in Journey today as I was when I first joined the group. Next to my family in Manila, Journey is my family. When I’m not working, I spend time at home with my wife and kids, and my Foundation. Now, I am busy preparing for our tour with Steve Miller Band and Tower of Power. I wish whoever is making up these lies would put their time to good use and stop spreading these false stories. - Arnel Pineda
Whatever the situation is, the essence still remains that people still do root for the reunion of the classic rock band Journey, with its original members.

If you would have to comment, should Journey reunite with Steve Perry?
