Happy Birthday to Neal Schon!

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!
