“We could have easily written a bunch of songs that sounded just like some of our older songs, but we wanted to bring something fresh on this record,” says Journey guitarist Neal Schon. The legendary musician is on the phone talking to Noisecreep about ‘Eclipse,’ Journey’s superb new album.

Packed to the rafters with sky high choruses and meaty guitar riffs courtesy of Schon, ‘Eclipse’ is every bit as good as Journey’s ’80s work, and often times better. “We’ve been playing a lot of new songs in our set lately and I can see people in the crowd singing along with every word. That’s when you know you did a good job,” laughs Schon.

It’s a great time to be in Journey. Not only is ‘Eclipse’ garnering rave reviews throughout the world, their upcoming US tour with Foreigner and Night Ranger is already doing brisk business. If that weren’t already enough, their 1983 radio staple, ‘Don’t Stop Believin” has become a rock standard, up there with ‘Stairway to Heaven’ and ‘My Generation.”
