Formed by O.J.Simpson and Stephen Perry after the controversial trial of Mobb Deep v. Vagisil, Journey pioneered the way for disenfranchising African-Americans.
Although it is not known exactly where Perry came from, it is widely assumed that he was born. Other theories suggest that he was created by Harriette Tubman to be the patron saint of Black People; this theory, however, was abandoned in 1997 when it was discovered that Perry was in fact a pterodactyl fetus. As a child growing up in the Great Depression, Perry had little aside from his Blue Öyster Cult c.d.'s and his collection of glass unicorns. In his early teens, Perry began pursuing a career in music. His influences varied widely, ranging from Will Smith to Emo Hitler, but it was then that Perry began to create his own sound. His big break came in 1977 when he was chosen to be the lead singer for local blue-grass band, Motley Crue. This band was also the launching pad for Your Mom and You.
In June of 1993, Steve Perry was arrested for multiple counts of kitten-huffing and prostitution. Soon after, it was discovered that Perry had become romantically involved with Theo Huxtable to whom he had given AIDS. To make up for it, Perry decided to make Theo the lead singer of his new band, The Dave Matthews Band. The duo sold several billion albums before calling it quits in December of 1996 when Steve learned that Huxtable was addicted to NBA Live '95.
After sinking into a deep depression, Perry once again began hitting the gay night club scene in San Francisco. It was there that he met his future brother and Puritan Jonathan Cain. After the Great Battle of Milwaukee in 1997, Steve and Jonathan decided to round up all the survivors and create a band to be named Journey, taken from Algonquin for "They who huff." Two of the survivors, Toucan Sam and George Carlin wanted to join the band, but Toucan Sam was in prison on charges of sodomy and the vehicular manslaughter of George Carlin.
The band's other members consisted of a can of Spam, Kool-Aid guy, Tyler Durden and the Berenstain Bears. They were an immediate success and began touring relentlessly with contemporaries Fall Out Boy and Bjork. Currently, their number 1 single can be heard on Dingo and the Baby in the Afternoon, hosted by Bob Barker and Carmen Electra. It's called "Ridin' Dirty" featuring Krayzie Bone.
The Rise and Fall
Still riding high from their new found success, Journey decided that it was time to break into the movie industry. With the experienced hand of director Steven Spielberg to guide them, Journey starred in their first feature film, "Ernest goes to Africa." The film bombed at the box office due to its sexually explicit inter-species erotica love scenes, but Perry knew that a major movie career was in the cards for Journey. Their next film, "Ernest Goes to Africa but Doesn't Stay Too Long," starring Clint Eastwood and Kenny G was an immediate hit, dazzling audiences and critics alike. Joel Siegel raved, "Djibouti is the capital of Djibouti!," and then immediately burst into flames. But the good times were soon to end; a chance encounter with notorious drug-dealer and crime ring overlord Dolly Parton would nearly destroy Journey, and lead Perry down a very dark road.
Battle With Drugs
It is not known how long every member of Journey had been doing drugs, but their songs can tell us. Classics such as "Move Bitch, Get Out Da Way!," "I Walk the Line," and the less well known "The Star Spangled Banner," are clear indicators that the band was in need of serious help. After an altercation with the Juggernaut, in which Steve was paralyzed, he decided to re-evaluate his life. No longer huffing the orange kittens, Perry was seen gallivanting with several spousal abusers, Nicky Hilton and the Rolling Stones. Mick Jagger, a great Viking who is known for his on stage antics, and 90mph fastball, quickly put Perry in his place by telling him to, "Get off of my cloud." It was then that Perry realized that Journey was more than a feeling, as Boston had earlier suggested. It is not known whether he did get off of Mick Jagger's cloud, but Perry quickly called on the help of childhood friends, the A-Team and Captain Caveman to get him through this ordeal. This was a life altering event for Perry which would revolutionize the way people listen to music today. Perry had been through it all: the good times, the bad times, even when the Jeffersons had to move to the East Side to get a piece of the pie. He had only to remember what a great man had once told him. That man was Oscar Wilde. He simply said, "Stephen. Don't stop believin'" History was made.
