Neal Schon, most notably known for his work in Journey, was born this day in 1954.
He joined Santana at the mere age of 15. Ironic story behind this: He was asked by Eric Clapton to join Derek & the Dominos, but since Santana had called first, he decided to join Santana.
Think about if he had joined D&tD instead... he probably wouldn't be where he is today. He obviously would have been overshadowed by Eric Clapton and no one would have truly picked out his talented guitar work.
In 1973, he founded Journey and, after all the Steve-Perry-diva-ego drama, is still rockin' today!

About Classic rock girl!
I'm a college student who grew up two decades too late and missed out on some fantastic music. I relive those years through this blog, by talking about anything and everything rock music related from the '60s, '70s, and '80s-- with some of "today's" music thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!
