Neal Schon Talks Double Duty With Journey and Santana (Recap)


.
On Monday Neal Schon Talks Double Duty With Journey and Santana was a top rock story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Neal Schon says he's ready to take part in a full-length tour with Journey and Santana if the opportunity arises. They've scheduled two shows together - but more could be booked in the future.

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.
