Oklahoma's own Neal Schon of the legendary rock band JOURNEY will be inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall Of Fame this Friday evening, August 23, , in Tulsa, prior to JOURNEY's concert at The Joint Hard Rock Event Center.
The only constant member of JOURNEY, Neal Schon was born at Tinker Air force Base located southeast of Oklahoma City. The multi-talented guitarist, vocalist and songwriter was also a member of SANTANA and BAD ENGLISH, HSAS, ABRAXAS POOL, SOUL SIRKUS, and others, and enjoys a successful solo career. As a member of JOURNEY, Schon co-wrote some of the group’s biggest hits, including "Don't Stop Believin'", "Any Way You Want It", "Lights" and "Wheel In The Sky".
"The Oklahoma Music Hall Of Fame is thrilled to induct Neal Schon to kick off the first of a number of events planned in Tulsa and OKC," says Oklahoma Music Hall Of Fame's executive director Jim Blair.
Schon joins a prestigious group of past inductees, including Woody Guthrie, Merle Haggard, Blake Shelton, Ronnie Dunn, and Carrie Underwood, among others, who have contributed to Oklahoma's rich musical local, national and international history.
