Wife surprises Neal Schon with 'Journey' of a lifetime

(ABC 4 Utah) A legend from the race track gave a legendary rocker the 'Journey' of a lifetime at the Indy 500 this year.

It wasn't easy, but Real Housewives star Michaele Schon pulled off the ultimate birthday surprise for her husband, legendary guitarist, Neal Schon of Journey.

Neal's a big fan of racing, so Michaele arranged for him to meet one of his all-time idols, champion driver Mario Andretti - at last month's Indy 500.

The two legends exchanged gifts. Neal is now the proud owner of an authentic Andretti racing suit, while Andretti now has his own custom made PRS NS-14 guitar.

The icing on this birthday surprise was a chance for Schon to ride-along with Andretti in his Honda "fastest seat in sports" racer.

Neal says it's a rush similar to playing on stage in front of 15 million fans.

Schon took a birthday break from working on his new solo album "Vortex," a two-disc instrumental set dedicated to his wife. The album drops on June 23. He's also spending a lot of time with another legend, recording with Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Famer Carlos Santana....

“SERENITY” Is Top 5 at Classic Rock Radio

(New York, NY) – Guitar legend Neal Schön is enjoying great success at Classic Rock radio with his track "Serenity." "Serenity" is comfortably seated in the Top 5 and has risen as high as #2, alongside such mainstays as Led Zeppelin and Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers; the song has been on the charts for 8 weeks. Check out the lyric video here. "Serenity" is taken from Neal Schön's latest album SO U, a jazz and blues-inspired hard rock studio album featuring Schön, bassist Marco Mendoza (Black Star Riders, Ted Nugent, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy) and drummer Deen Castronovo (Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, Steve Vai, Hardline). The three musicians split vocal and writing duties, with many of the tracks also co-written by Night Ranger/Damn Yankee’s songwriter, singer and bassist Jack Blades. The album is available now via iTunes, Amazon and via the Journey online store.

Of SO U, Ultimate Classic Rock raved, "SO U stands tall as one of the finest albums that Neal Schön has released to date. The combination of Schön with Deen Castronovo and Marco Mendoza is a potent triple threat which delivers on every level. With nine tracks spread over 51 minutes, SO U never overstays its welcome and the typically diverse blend of material will strongly resonate with fans of Schön‘s previous work, most notably Santana and Journey. I’ll be standing by and waiting for a sequel."
