JOURNEY Guitarist Interviewed At U.K.’s DOWNLOAD Festival

Paul Marshall of Marshall Amplification conducted an interview with guitarist Neal Schon of American rock legends JOURNEY at this year’s Download festival, which was held June 12-14 at Donington Park, United Kingdom. Watch the chat below.

JOURNEY — Schon, Jonathan Cain (keyboards), Ross Valory (bass), Deen Castronovo (drums) and Arnel Pineda (vocals) — earned platinum honors in 2008 for the band’s latest album, “Revelation”, marking JOURNEY’s 11th platinum album certification to date.

“Revelation” entered the national Top 100 charts in six countries in its debut week of release in Europe. These results marked the band’s biggest first-week sales since 1996’s “Trial By Fire” and one of Frontiers Records’ best overall sales results in the label’s 10-year history.

In the U.S., JOURNEY’s CD/DVD package “Revelation” sold more than 104,000 copies in its debut week according to Wal-Mart Stores, marking the band’s biggest first week’s sales since 1996’s “Trial By Fire”. Released in June 2008, “Revelation” was sold exclusively at Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club in North America, Walmart.com and Samsclub.com, and JOURNEY’s official web site, Journeymusic.com. “Revelation”‘s first-week sales marked a 1400% increase over the band’s 2005’s first-week sales of “Generations”.
