I have heard and read a lot of this stuff in recent months. The thing is we will never have the full story. Aside from his talent, I am sure that Steve Perry has some really good qualities too. But sometimes when a musician is expressing himself, I think he can get tunnel vision and think of "what's best for me?" not "what's best for us?" Herbie was doing his job as a manager; making his clients successful. But sometimes when your success is riding so heavily on someone else's plan, you tend to want to take some of your own control. Steve did that. Hey, I'm not saying the guy was a saint. Any one of us can be a jerk sometimes depending on the circumstances. And sometimes a manager's JOB is to be a bit of a jerk. Sometimes he has to say, "I don't care what you say this is what is best for your career and you are doing it!" Ego can be an ugly thing no matter who it is coming from. Anyway, I think I'm rambling a little. Just thought I'd throw out my two cents.
