Journey guitarist Neal Schon recently indicated that he and former singer Steve Perry were "talking and getting to know each other again" but also added that they're "not trying to get together musically again," and now Steve has filed a lawsuit against his former bandmates.
Perry filed a petition against Schon and keyboardist Jonathan Cain to cancel trademark registrations for 20 songs he participated in writing.
They had registered Journey classics including "Separate Ways," "Open Arms," "Anyway You Want It," "Who's Crying Now," "When You Love a Woman" and others through Freedom JN LLC for use on hats, T-shirts, athletic jackets and other paraphernalia.
Steve Perry claims a violation an earlier agreement that stipulates decisions like these must be made with "prior, written unanimous consent of all partners in each instance."
He also claims use of "false or misleading information" in securing the trademarks.
