Recently, Neal Schon took to his social pages to talk about Steve Perrythe recent act on the Journey trademark lawsuit. Aiming to tell everyone the true side of the matter, Schon called Pearit is Journey trademark lawsuit “total bullshit”.

“Here’s how it goes folks,” he continued. “Jon Cain calls a board meeting out of nowhere, then before I found out about the meeting, Jonathan came up to me and said he didn’t like what they were planning.

“At that meeting, Steve, Ross, Smith and Herbie elected myself and Cain from the board and Steve and all voted Ross over me and Smith over Jon’s. They all knew at the time that I had investigated our trademarks for years trying to get to the bottom of any corruption as we found (my wife and I) nothing had ever been trademarked outside of our music . They all went for a takeover and it didn’t work. Easy enough.

“So my wife Micheale Schon found a legitimate trademark attorney who wasn’t in corrupt music circles and then we managed to reach out to her to protect everything we built. We got ripped off from the start until I close it.

In the following, Neal Schon continued to touch anyone else, especially other band members, without helping them get Journey‘s registered trademarks. According to him, it was a “giant corrupt network” of individuals who benefited financially from the group’s affairs.

“So the question is: It was a giant circle of corrupt people that management or accountants were hiring to work for us, cashing in on all of our goods so far,” Schon continues.

“At this point, I decided to go for all album titles as well as song titles. The more we were educated that songwriting and copyrights don’t nothing to do with trademarks… You haven’t heard the last of these friends We’ll peel the onion.
