Why don't the greatest voices DO MORE SINGING?

What is it about these Steve Perry types anyway? You have a guy like me who couldn't sing his way out of a shower stall, and if I could sing a fifth as well as Hugo or Steve Perry, I'd be making albums ever year until the day I die. But now I hear these gifts are being wasted?? Steve Perry in retirement? Hugo having to be forced to record at wife-point? Then you have other great voices like Jimi Jamison who takes an 8-year vacation from recording, Bobby Kimball who was M.I.A. for a better part of the '80s and most of the '90s, Fergie Frederiksen who I thought was DEAD until he re-surfaced with Ricky Philips in the mid-90's, Mickey Thomas who can't be accounted for these days, Brad Delp whose singing ability and recorded output are not proportionate... etc. etc.

Why are all the best voices the ones we never hear enough of? Conversely, we get bombarded with a new Bonfire CD every 12 months... go figure.
