JOURNEY guitarist Neal Schon has floated the idea of a reunion with co founding JOURNEY and SANTANA keyboardist Gregg Rolie.

Earlier today, Schon tweeted a photo of him and Rolie with the caption: “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?”

Schon‘s attorneys claim in the suit, which was filed in Contra Costa in the Bay Area of California, that Cain hasn’t turned over financial records that allow Schon to know how much the band owes him.

According to the lawsuit, Cain and Schon set up a company after a previous legal dispute with former bass player Ross Valory that operates the band, Nomota, of which they own 50 percent each. Cain, for his part, accused Schon of misusing the card, citing his “excessive spending and extravagant lifestyle.”

“Really don’t understand why he would think I can’t see what’s gone on going all the way back to 1998,” he continued. “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.”

Back in 2017, Schon and Cain feuded publicly on social media after Cain, singer Arnel Pineda and Valory were photographed at the White House with then-U.S. president Donald TrumpCain is a devout born-again Christian whose minister wife Paula White-Cain delivered the invocation at Trump‘s inauguration.

Three and a half years ago, Schon and Cain were embroiled in a legal dispute with former JOURNEY drummer Steve Smith and Valory. In April of 2021, Schon and Cain “reached an amicable settlement agreement” with Smith and Valory.

JOURNEY now consists of Schon and Cain, longtime singer Arnel Pineda, drummer Deen Castronovo, keyboardist/backing singer Jason Derlatka and bassist Todd Jensen.
