Steve Perry Reportedly Sues To Block Release Of Early Demo

Former Journey frontman Steve Perry has reportedly filed a lawsuit to prevent the release of an unreleased music demo from the 1990s. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Perry is suing a musician named Phil Brown, who he worked with back in 1991 after they were introduced by his manager. Perry says he recorded the tracks for “demo” purposes on an 8-track tape and paid Brown $1,500 to record the songs. Perry says the songs were recorded at a low quality and “he did not perform them as he would if the recordings were intended for public release.” Perry has accused the man of “deceptively associating Perry with Brown and his band, falsely implying that Plaintiff is a member of Brown’s band, and threatening to release certain old vocal performances of Perry as part of Brown’s band’s release, even though Perry owns all intellectual property rights in said vocal performances, Brown abandoned any claim to those performances in 2002, and Perry has repeatedly demanded that Brown not release those works.” Perry is suing for an injunction prohibiting Brown from releasing the music and for unspecified damages.
