JOURNEY keyboardist Jonathan Cain was recently interviewed by Tigman of the Albany, New York radio station Q103.
When asked about his relationship with JOURNEY guitarist Neal Schon, he said:
Jonathan: “We just finished five days of rehearsal. I think we’ve completely reset with each other. I’m looking forward to a great tour with him and the rest of the guys. We’ve been together 38 years. There’s always going to have a bump in the road. I don’t know any marriage that hasn’t had any squabbles. It was a misunderstanding, and I think we’re ready to move on from all that.”
On whether he thinks Steve Perry will ever perform with the band again:
Jonathan: “I don’t know. You’d have to ask Steve on that. I really don’t know. I was surprised he didn’t show up at soundcheck at the [Rock And Roll] Hall Of Fame. I thought for sure… I kept looking in the wings to see if he was going to surprise us, but he didn’t — he declined. I respect him and his private life, and he’s been so gracious in all the sync licenses. He stays involved in keeping the brand as excellent as it can be, so he’s cooperating and helping our brand and business by approving and really looking at everything that comes down the pike, so I thank him for that. He’s a classy guy. He showed it at the Hall Of Fame. He looked happy, healthy. I hope he continues to make music and sing, because that’s what he was blessed to do.”
