Steve Perry is "not a big fan" of the Rock Hall

Steve Perry hasn’t performed with Journey in over a decade, but he was recently asked by Billboard if he would consider reuniting on the occasion of a hypothetical Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction:
"I don't know," Perry says.  "I'm not a big fan of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's just a personal thing, not an ego thing. I think that, honestly, Journey doesn't need to be in the Hall of Fame. With everything we accomplished...we've had our Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, you know? It's in the hearts of the people out  there and their experiences and their memories of what we did together and how we all had the time of our lives with the music that we loved to perform and they loved to hear. I really don't want someone to qualify it any more than that.”
Perry’s dismissive sentiment towards the Rock Hall is common among snubbed artists (see also The Cars, Daryl Hall, Toto, etc.), but not many are willing to go the route of the Sex Pistols once they get inducted.
