Journey’s Neal Schon has announced that he will be donating part of his personal collection to the Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture (OKPOP). The announcement was made right before the band took the stage at their July 9 Tulsa, Oklahoma show with Def Leppard. Schon commented:
“We’re going to get a nice collection for you all. I’m going to have to go through my zillion guitars and figure out which ones I’m going to ship. I’m also going to get you a giant platinum plaque with all our records on it.”
Furthermore, Schon also welcomed active-duty soldiers onstage for a performance of the “Star Spangled Banner” during a July 4 concert in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
