The former lead singer of the San Francisco based rock band Journey expects to make a full recovery after surgery for melanoma.

Steve Perry confirms he had two surgeries last month to remove a cancerous mole from his face. Perry says doctors got it all and no other treatments are required.

The 64-year-old called the diagnosis traumatic, especially after he lost his girlfriend to cancer last year.

Perry sang lead on nearly all of journey's greatest hits.

He left the band in 1995.
