1994 Steve Perry – For the Love of Strange Medicine

Perry, Steve 1994For the Love of Strange Medicine is the second studio album by Steve Perry, released on July 19, 1994 through Columbia Records. After a lengthy 8-year hiatus following the breakup of Journey, and a shelved 1988 solo effort later titled Against the Wall, Perry returned to the spotlight with this album. The first single “You Better Wait” received major radio airplay and reached the top 10 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart in the U.S. The album was followed by a tour in 1994-1995. For the Love of Strange Medicine was certified as gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments of 500,000 units in the United States, as of September 1994.

The song “Young Hearts Forever” was written by Perry as a tribute to his late friend, Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott, who died in 1986.
