Read this story this morning. That was a pretty classy move on Prince's part. I never got the comparison of Purple Rain to Faithfully though.

Really great read. I too don't see the comparison with "Faithfully" at all. Pretty cool that Prince really admires Schon's guitar work.

For some reason I always thought the story was that Schon called Prince to apologise for the ending of Faithfully sounding like Purple Rain

Mike Stone and Kevin Elson asked for another power ballad for the set.

Another power ballad? Sep Ways, After the Fall and Send her My love I wouldn't call power ballads.

Always saw the ending of each songs similar. But the rest is nothing like Faithfully. Very cool that Prince reached out to them. Class act.

there was a radio show here that ran this story, at the end Jon spoke about a one direction song,

never heard heard so googled it, apparently there is 2 songs that rip off the piano opening, much much more than Princes
ending.

Neal's comment on FB re/ another tune also -

Jesse V -

Neal I'm surprised you never sued Kansas for Carry On Wayward Son which is much more a rip off of your song I'm Gonna Leave You

· 15 hrs

Neal Schon -

Believe me I wanted to. Was a total rip And they did it while we were playing gigs with them. They went so far to say we really like the new tune ( I'm going to leave you ) 5/4 shuffle... We played it live before we recorded it

14 hrs
Perry's good natured bonhomie & the world’s most charmin smile,knocked fans off their feet. Sportin a black tux,gigs came alive as he swished around the stage thrillin audiences w/ charisma that instantly burnt the oxygen right out of the venue.TR.com

Surprised this is new to many of you....much discussed over the years. Very similar, especially live. JSS plays them together..

I hadn't thought the songs were that similar, but after reading this story here, it also came to me how Soto was doing Purple Rain and Faithfully as a medley during Soul Sirkus shows. I thought that was a strange combo at the time but now it starts to make sense! Schon must have told that story to Soto. I thought it was just that Soto was a Prince fan.

Schon & Soto even went to a Prince show (Minneapolis, I think) during the Soul SirkUS era, and talked about it all then. Schon said that's where he got the idea to give Generations away at Journey shows. Prince was doing that with his current record.
Or something like that...

I seem to recall that Neal moved to Minneapolis with one of his wives because that is where she was from originally. I would imagine that he at least looked up Prince a couple of times.

I thought that was Minnesota.

Everyone needs to stop talking about Minnesota. It's getting too crowded here. I didn't leave the CA madhouse for nothing. It's 20 degrees below zero 313 days out of the year. Now stay away (i.e. Get off my ice hole).

We cannot let Madonna be the main and only artist tributing Prince during the 2016 Billboard Awards. He is more than worthy of a better choice as a main performer. Please sign and share this petition so that we can get a proper tribute on May 22, 2016. Timing is tight! Spread the word.

Let's nominate Journey to perform Purple Rain.
