FLASHBACK: Journey’s Rock Hall Induction Speeches

Neal Schon celebrates his birthday today (February 27), and within the past couple of years, there was perhaps 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.

Schon has a couple of solo shows coming up this weekend billed as "Neal Schon's Journey Through Time" that feature Gregg Rolie, Deen Castronovo, Marti Frederikden, Marco Mendoza and Chris Collins. Complete show details can be found at SchonMusic.com.
