Journey's Neal Schon To Be Inducted Into Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame

Journey guitarist Neal Schon is set to be honored in his native state tomorrow night, (August 23rd) when he is inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.

The induction is set to take place prior to Journey's concert at The Joint Hard Rock Event Center tomorrow night, according to the band's press representative.

"The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame is thrilled to induct Neal Schon to kick off the first of a number of events planned in Tulsa and OKC," says OMHOF's Executive Director, Jim Blair.

Schon was born at Tinker Air force Base, which is located southeast of Oklahoma City. He began his professional career at 15-years-old when he left home to join Santana during their early '70s peak and recorded with them on the 1971's "Santana III" and 1972's "Caravanserai" albums.

Having relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area, by 1973 Schon went on to form the group that would become Journey with The Tubes' Prairie Prince and Frumious Bandersnatch's Ross Valory and George Tickner. Schon's fellow Santana alumni Gregg Rolie joined the group soon after.

While the Journey lineup has evolved over the years with different musicians, Schon has been the only consistent member since it's formation until today.

Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame will hold its induction ceremony at the Mabee Center on October 15.
