Sherrie Swafford’s Relationship with Steve Perry
Sherrie and her singer boyfriend were crazily in love with each other and this caught the public eye. Although there is no detail of Sherrie and Perry’s first meeting, they did date for years. Steve even wrote a number of songs including “Oh Sherrie,” and “Missing You” which talks about their love. Both Steve and Sherrie confirmed they were crazily in love with each other but as time went on, they realized that love wasn’t all they needed to remain together. Pressure on Steve’s music career was apparently the main reason for their breakup. They quarreled about almost everything – from the singer’s hectic tours with his band, to every other activity that kept them apart continuously.
The singer-songwriter Stephen Ray Perry is a Californian native, born as the only child of his Portuguese parents. His interest in music started from childhood as he grew up watching Raymond (Pereira) Perry sing. Apparently, his father was a vocalist and a co-owner of a radio station. With encouragement from his mother, Steve began his musical career first with a band he created with Scott Mathews. He also founded a progressive rock band called Pieces before joining the Alien Project in his mid-20s. When Steve joined the Journey group in the mid-1970s, he gave the band a new face with his pop style of music. He was also a lead vocalist for the rock band’s nine albums, including Departure, Evolution, Dream, After Dream and Infinity.
Steve’s excelling music career obviously made it difficult for Sherrie to keep up. It apparently made her wary of having to manage their love life in the face of the rough storms of fame. Hence, their breakup happened in 1985. Years after their separation, the duo confirmed that though they’ve been separated for long, they are hopeful that they rejuvenate their love all over again, especially as the legendary singer has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
