Anyone else think Benny Mardones sounds a lot like post-Frontiers Perry once he starts singing powerfully (0:49 onward):

Man, that guys sounds really similar to 1984-1986! Great singing and a nice song.

About Perry's solo efforts, he has 2 albums, I'd recommend both, but the singing is much better on his later album For The Love Of The Strange Medicine because Street Talk isn't vocal oriented.

Ack, I heard some clips from the 1994 solo tour. That was pretty painful, Steve sounding tired. The whole show's up on Dime now, in case you wanna hear. The sound isn't bad, but the singing is rough and strained.

I think "Somewhere There's Hope" is still my favorite Perry vocal.

It's neck-in-neck with "Something To Hide" though.

He was a bit hit/miss on that tour. There's some great shows from December 1994, though. I read that he toured with bronchitis on that tour, so he didn't sound too hot at times. I will say that overall, the FTLOSM tour was better than the ROR tour for Steve's vocals.

living as I do in the land of filipina cover bands, i go back and forth over my views on their talents.

Steve Perry has one of the best voices of music history. About his falsetto, I always thought to be a natural register for him, so honestly, I would just say he is able to have a huge range of frequencies when he sings.

He is probably skilled as most other very good singers, but what he has is this "natural" feel when he performs, nothing is pushed too far, all is simple and very clear for him.

I agree with most of this. Add to that his incredible sense of phrasing, which is certainly up there in the elite Mercury/McCartney realm. Factor in also his insane ability to weave in and out of different registers (most documented in live performances of course).
And that's still not even factoring in his brilliant volume control and melisma.

Yeah I'd say he was one of a kind. Maybe somewhat of a Sam Cooke knock-off, but a brilliant Sam Cooke knock-off.
