Revolution Saints' Doug Aldrich Lost Solo To Neal Schon
. (TeamRock Radio) Revolution Saints guitarist Doug Aldrich had to give up his favourite solo on the supergroup's debut album when Journey axeman Neal Schon sent in his own take.
The former Whitesnake man teamed up with Journey's Deen Castronovo and Night Ranger's Jack Blades for the self-titled record, launched last month.
But his plans for their song Way To The Sun were changed when Schon's guest appearance was confirmed. Aldrich tells Classic Rock Revisited: "I think it's my favourite track on the record. They told me Neal was going to be on the album, and I was like, 'F*** yeah!' as I'm a huge fan.
"Then they said he might not be able to do it, so I put a solo on the song. I fell in love with that solo and I fell in love with the song. Then they said, 'Neal is able to play on it after all.' I was like, 'No!'" Read more here.
