Today’s Blimp Time-Hop
Happy 64th Birthday to the only constant member of Journey, Neal Schon! He was born at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma on February 27, 1954. Along with always being the guitar player on every Journey tour and every Journey album, Neil was also in Bad English and Santana.
In 2016, he joined Carlos in the studio for a new album called Santana IV. This is the first time this original classic line-up of Santana has recorded together since 1971’s Santana III, hence the name Santana IV. It's really good stuff that absolutely picks up where the left off.
Journey has played live in Maine 6 times from their first appearance at the Cumberland County Civic Center in 1978 to their last one in 2016 on the Bangor Waterfront.
Here's the Bangor setlist.
Watch Neal shred in the video below! And wow…check out that hair!
Journey reunited with Steve Perry when they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year! Unfortunately, there was no performance from the former bandmates to mark the occasion. It was however very cool to see them together on stage for the ceremony after 20 some odd years.
