Steve Perry:
I usually stay at home and listen to music. Something like that. I cook. I'm a vegetarian now and I enjoy experimenting with new combinations of vegetables and grains and things.
Who turned you on to the vegetarian life-style?
Steve Perry:
I got sick about a year and a half ago on a hamburger and that's what stared it all. Now I feel better, I don't catch as many colds as I used to,  and I've got even more energy than I had before - and I'm hyper to start with!
What is your specialty in the kitchen?
Steve Perry:
I'm real good with Mexican, food and things like cheese enchiladas are what I'm really good at.
