Journey are being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next week, and anyone who may have had hopes that former frontman Steve Perry would reunite with his old band for their induction performance will seemingly be disappointed.

In an interview with Jonathan Cain in the Dayton Daily News, the Journey keyboardist said that while Perry will be around to accept the award, as far as he knows he’ll “skedaddle” right after that’s over and done with. “That’s all I know, unless something changes,” he notes. Instead, replacement lead vocalist Arnel Pineda will “represent very well, like he always does.”

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony takes place April 7 at Barclays Center.
