Neal Schon Talks Double Duty With Journey and Santana
He remains leader of his own band, while having reunited with Carlos Santana and his original lineup for Santana IV, which was released last week. He also released solo album Vortex last year.
Schon tells Radio.com: "I got my first taste of trying to do two sets when Journey toured Canada. My solo album had just come out. My manager asked if I would be the opening act, and I said, 'For Journey?' That's a completely different audience, and I didn't know if I wanted to do that. I said, 'Well, it's a good opportunity.'"
In the end he accepted the role, and performed a 40-minute solo set before returning to the stage with Journey each night. "I was dripping wet with sweat after that, more than I ever had after a Journey set, because it was very demanding music," he says of the opening performances." Read more here.
