Happy Birthday Neal Schon!
November 1981 you rocked an MTV t-shirt onstage at the Summit in Houston, when that Escape Tour stop was MTV’s first-ever live concert!
Cut to a few years later you, me, Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli talked our way into a London nightclub, your winning phrase being “He played the solo on Beat It!”
Just last month we chatted love, life, rock ’n roll and Journey past, present, and future on my podcast, and all along the way it’s been a pleasure to call you a friend. Have a Happy Birthday today with your lovely lady Michaele!
P.S. Check out how Steve introduces Don’t Stop Believing as “new Escape music for ya” and the crowd goes wild! Steve gives Neal a nice shout-out before his awesome solo too.
Here's the podcast episode I did with Neal back in December!
