Journey’s Neal Schon has issued a new statement regarding the dispute between him and his bandmate Jonathan Cain. As previously reported, the guitarist filed a lawsuit against the keyboardist after accusing him of spending millions of the band’s funds on an American Express card that was set up without his knowledge. However, Cain is claiming that Schon was the one who was misusing the credit card.
Schon said the following:
“All I want to see is our Records. Cain is lying as I DO NOT HAVE FULL ACCESS as he states. I’m now a 50% owner. I’m the founder President and Secretary / manager of Nomota LLC that we started in 1998 and have every right to see what’s gone on in there. AMEX ON A RECORDED LINE on both side told me JON WILL NOT give me access to the account of ALL CREDIT CARDS THAT HAVE BEEN USED. They told me I Only have Limited access.
Really don’t understand why he would think I can’t see what’s gone on going all the way back to 1998. Hand over the records. It’s my legal right to see what our corporate BAND CARD FOR NOMOTA has been used for for the last over 2 decades. There’s been MANY EX Employees that had used this card. TRANSPARENCY is All I’m asking for. Is that to much to be asking of a 50/50 partner.
There’s no skating around this.”
In a separate statement, Schon also revealed that he is considering the possibility of a reunion with Gregg Rolie:
“2 original founding members 🙌🏽🙌🏽 I think my brother Gregg Rolie should join us for 2023 tour. What do you think friends? He will spice it up and we will have a great variety of songs to choose from. What would you like to hear for the 50th anniversary tour ? A”
