The most recent issue between Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain might have affected their relationship and have given them the possibility of collapsing from Journey.
Known to many, these two became the foundation of Journey for decades, but their friendship might fall apart due to a lawsuit over a credit card.
In 1998, Schon and Cain became 50/50 partners in a limited-liability corporation that handles the Journey’s business and it was called Nomota. Now, the American Express card associated with Nomota is the point to blame for the feud.
Schon recently filed a lawsuit against Cain for “improperly restricting” him to access the account and its documents. Cain, on the other hand, defended that it was because of Schon’s “excessive spending and extravagant lifestyle, which led to him running up enormous personal charges on the band’s credit card.”
Aside from that, Cain was also being accused of “interfering with Journey, refusing to respond to booking opportunities, blocking payment to band members, crew and vendors.” Meanwhile, Cain claimed Schon is “under tremendous financial pressure as a result of his excessive spending and extravagant lifestyle, which led to him running up enormous personal charges on the band’s credit card.”
So far, the two remain bandmates for now, despite the ongoing legal battle. It was not also the first time that these two exchanged spicy words against each other. They’ve been going through the same situation even years before, but still, they describe their relationship as “more on musical one.” Cain said earlier this year:
“In the end, he needs me as much as I need him. You don’t like me or you don’t like my religion or my politics, fine. But in the end, we come together to play music. That’s what it’s about.”
Then Schon agreed by saying:
“Jon and I have a great chemistry musically. When we get together, we always come up with something that’s happening.”
