    Holy shit. You're right. Look Into the Future is surprisingly awesome. And not Gay. Wow. This is really good.

    The first two albums were essentially jazz fusion, and the band was Carlos Santana's backing band at Woodstock.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    I'd say they were more just kickass rock with some fusion influence, but definitely more musically robust than what came later. However, I was probably a bit ungenerous in my previous comment--really, all of the Journey albums through "Departure" have some good stuff on them, and Schon always has kickass playing. The problem with the later albums with Jonathan Cain is too much cheezy keyboards and balladry, and not enough Neal Schon.

    He's one of my touchstones for getting a good lead tone out of a Les Paul.

    I love him. I have Journey's Live in Houston 1981 on dvd, such a kickass dvd too. I've always been a huge Journey fan.

    Anybody have any especially unflattering pictures of him? Asking for a friend.
