Who was Sherrie Swafford and where is she now?

Sherrie Swafford is known as the long time girlfriend of rock singer, Steve Perry, best known as the front man of Journey.

Swafford and Perry had a long-term relationship. He even wrote a number of songs including “Oh Sherrie,” but the couple never made it to the altar. Sources suggest that the pressures of touring ended the relationship.

Talking about the relationship Perry revealed in a 2011 interview:

“Sherrie and I were crazy in love, I can tell you that. And it was a very tough time because the band was peaking. And if any woman out there thinks that it would be real exciting to be the girlfriend of somebody in a band like that and that it would be all peaches and cream, the truth is that it’s hard to navigate a relationship when you’re in the midst of such a ride.”

Swafford is an ultra private person and leads a quiet life. In 2013 according to Hollywood Reporter, Sherrie Swafford never married and never had children. She became an esthetician and yoga teacher.
