Neal Schon discusses Detroit's influence on ‘Journey'

“Born and Raised in South Detroit?”

Journey played a sold out show at the DTE Energy Center last week and Local 4’s Shawn Ley interviewed band founder and guitarist Neal Schon prior to the show.

Schon tells Local 4 where “South Detroit” came from and how the city of Detroit actually helped launch the band to stardom.

He also makes his strongest statement about former singer Steve Perry we’ve heard and talks about finding singer Arnel Pineda on YouTube.
