Neal Schon celebrates his birthday today (February 27), and within the past year, there was no greater moment for the guitarist than when Journey was finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
A long overdue honor for the San Francisco-based band, the induction was made even sweeter with the addition of Steve Perry joining the band on stage for the speech portion of the show.
Fans will be able to catch Journey live this summer as they head out on the road on a massive tour with Def Leppard. For a complete list of tour dates and ticket information, check out JourneyMusic.com.
