Once again, former Journey singer Steve Perry performed on stage with Eels. This time he was in Los Angeles.
He tried a different one for LA. Perry busted out Lights.
The song started in LA, according to Perry. He began writing the song before joining Journey while in Los Angeles. But, when he went up to the San Francisco Bay area with Journey, the song became about the bay. Hence the line, "and the sun shines on the bay."
