Perry loved playing his bass guitar, rock music and going to concerts. He enjoyed smoking cigarettes and diet Mountain Dew. He was a big professional wrestling, Chicago Bulls and Chicago Cubs fan. He was a very open-minded individual who loved speaking his wisdom about how music is the sound of the soul. One major event in his life worth mentioning is, he survived an 80ft fall off a cliff when he was a young kid in 1978. He loved taking his children on trips. He was “Dad” to many.
