One and only... The BEST Guitarist in the entire UNIVERSE, Mr. Neal Schon!!!!

What's Been Happening around Neal?
Sorry for some catch ups, it's been a tough and rough couple of weeks for me...
It was sad and so unfortunate that our one and only Neal had to go to ER last weekend. I, myself and all of his fan were so worried - it turned out that he had a highly infected gallbladder for the last 3.5 years...
But don't worry everyone, Neal is baaaaack!!!! The bad gallbladder was taken out from his system and he's resting well surrounded by lots of love including his family, friends and all of us! Neal promised we all will have great shows next week and following weekend
And from the latest news from the Journey camp, now I know why... Neal was giving us some hints remembering some moments from the 2017 Japan tour... Journey has announced that they will release the special Budokkan show - Escape-Frontier Set next month!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Walkin' Away From the Edge - Fractal Audio Systems
Neal has been using equipment from Fractal Audio Systems for the last several years. His latest rig includes Axe-Fx III, FC-6 and the Looper. Here is a cool clip posted by Fractal Audio Systems. It's an intro from a song, "Walkin' Away From the Edge" which is from 2002, the "Red 13" EP. Deen took the vocal for this song and showcased how great he can sing so I hope to hear the full version of this song during the upcoming NS JTT shows

For Someone Who Misses Neal...
Neal made guest appearances for a couple of projects and there are few songs available through iTunes, Spotify and Amazon. Enjoy!

  • "Valley of Fire" Triumphant Hearts by Jason Becker was released on December 7, 2018. Bunch of guitarists gathered together and recorded this album with Jason
  • The Primitive Medicine Sessions Vol. 1 by Michael Carabello was released on October 31, 2018. Michael and Neal have been great friends since the early Santana era. I believe Neal plays for 3 songs, "Cry of the Whale," "Something Must Change" and "Cafe Bello." Those were recorded a while back (right after "Electric World" if I'm not mistaken... Almost 20 years ago!!). I'm so glad that Michael could finally released this through streaming services. Thanks Les for the info!
  • “Synchronicity II” - Neal, Arnel Pineda and Steve Smith recorded a cover of Police for Rock Against Trafficking Organization
  • “Rock & Roll Hall of Fame 2017 Blu Ray Disc” - The full induction ceremonies from 2014-2017 are available on DVD and Blu-ray from Time Life! You can watch unforgettable speeches from Neal and Steve as well as the band's performance
