How Did NEAL SCHON Resolve His Public Feud With JONATHAN CAIN? 'We Just Don't Talk,' The JOURNEY Guitarist Says

January 19, 2018

JOURNEY guitarist Neal Schon has commented on his war of words with Jonathan Cain over a White House visit by several members of the band.

Journey's Neal Schon on Touring with Tensions in the Band "We Just Don't Talk"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... uAY-Nym-D0

( video has about an additional 1.30 mins of news starting @ 4.20 mark )

Schon and the keyboardist feuded publicly on social media last summer after Cain, singer Arnel Pineda and bassist Ross Valory were photographed with President Donald Trump. Cain is married to Trump's spiritual advisor, Pastor Paula White, one of the religious leaders who participated in Trump's January 2017 inauguration.

While promoting this summer's JOURNEY-DEF LEPPARD North American tour Friday morning (January 19), Schon was asked by Albany, New York's Q103 radio station how he and Cain ended up being at odds over the latter's increasingly religious bent.
"It wasn't really a feud; I was stating an opinion and where we have come from before and the way we've conducted ourselves as a band," Schon explained. "And that's the honest-to-God truth.

"I've been here the longest out of anyone, and we always agreed never to mix with politics or religion, and so we all stuck to it," he added.

Schon, who appeared at points during his tweetstorm last summer to suggest that he might be reforming a new version of JOURNEY, told Q103 that he was feeling frustrated because he "wasn't able to talk to anyone inside the band and I wasn't able to talk to management about it." As a result, he "chose to take it to our audience and let the audience — my fans — chime in and tell me how they felt. And that was very interesting to read, because I found out afterwards I had close to 100 percent of the fans and they understood where I was coming from and that it was not just some little feud," he said "It was something a bit more major than that."

He continued: "[JOURNEY is] a band that I started many, many years ago — at the end of '72 — and I'm the only member that's been here for this long and I've made all the right choices all along with all the members that have come and gone and chosen the people that have come in. And so to have somebody come in and just go, 'Hey, I'm gonna take your Lamborghini or motorcycle over here and I'm gonna go over here and do this, but I'm not gonna tell you about it,' I didn't think that was cool. That's the real deal.'

Asked how he and his bandmates managed to come back from that low point last year, Schon said: "Well, we just don't talk. [Laughs] We're gonna let the music do the talking, like that old song.

"I'm here because of the fans, I'm here to play every year for the fans and for the great music that we've written, and the rest of it is just… People move in different places, and I can't help that," he said. "And so it is what it is. And I'll be there on stage kicking some serious butt."

Pressed about whether the JOURNEY lineup that will perform during the summer tour will be the same one that the fans are accustomed are seeing, Schon said: "As far as I know, yeah," before bursting into a laugh.

Neal is the only remaining original member of JOURNEY who has appeared on all the band's albums.
JOURNEY's 58-city tour with DEF LEPPARD will kick off on May 21 in Hartford, Connecticut.

Tickets go on sale beginning Saturday, February 3 at LiveNation.com.

Neal Schon Says Journey Are Ready to Move on After ‘Hard Times’

http://ultimateclassicrock.com/journey- ... dispute-2/

A difficult period won't keep Journey from finding their groove again on an upcoming shared tour with Def Leppard, founding guitarist Neal Schon says. The credit for that goes to the music they've created together.

"It's like a healer," Schon says in an exclusive interview with Ultimate Classic Rock. "Music is the healer, you know? That's the thing that pulls people together."

Journey announced a string of co-headlining dates with Def Leppard earlier today, confirming a long-rumored reunion of two bands that previously toured together in 2006.

In the meantime, Schon was part of a lengthy and very public dispute with longtime keyboardist Jonathan Cain over the role of religion and politics in the band. Schon argued, quite forcefully, that Journey has never let those kind of outside forces in, for fear of alienating one segment or another of their fan base.

Some fans understandably worried about the future of Journey, but Schon tells us that these kind of furious debates have been part of their personal dynamic since Cain joined the group before 1981's multi-platinum-selling Escape. Again, Schon points to the role of music – this time, in the form of a long-awaited follow up to 2011's Eclipse, their most recent studio effort – as a potential bridge builder.

"Even in the early days," Schon adds, "in the '80s when I first pulled in Jonathan Cain to take Gregg Rolie's place, we always butted heads pretty much musically. We came from opposite sides of the spectrum, and when we joined together, that's kind of what made the sound. I would suspect that it's still there. We just haven't messed with it in a while, and tried anything. I've been wanting to, but it just hasn't happened."

Over the years, Schon says Journey learned to set aside whatever was going on behind the scenes in service of their career and out of respect for fans who've stuck by the group through thick and thin. That history of musical detente helps him put their more recent differences into perspective, Schon says.

"We've had some hard times," he admits, "mainly because I think everybody is just going in different directions, away from everything we had done for many, many years. So, it was hard for me to understand.

But the bottom line is, I respect all of the work that we've done together as a band – and I respect our fans. I love our fans. So, it doesn't really matter if we don't see eye to eye any longer. When we get onstage, it's about the music, and it's about the fans."

They had already become a band that never really collaborated creatively or rehearsed. Now they are a band that doesn't even talk to each other. Why would I pay money to see this shit?

How long has it been since Neal actually met one of Journeys fans? He never goes to the meet and greet, or any of the charity things they do with the fans.

He "loves the fans"....because they pay to see him, bottom line.

Sounds like they should put up a partition curtain, midstage, so
they don't have to interact with each other.

By revealing his political colors Schon is being as partisan as Cain. Dopey guy.

Pathetic. So sick of Hollywood and entertainers telling us how we should feel, can’t wait to vote for Trumps re election.

I don't think there's a whole lot of honesty involved in for-profit megachurches.
