Neal Schon Donating Memorabilia To OKPOP

Founding Journey member Neal Schon will donate a part of his personal collection to the Oklahoma Museum of Popular Culture (OKPOP). OKPOP, aimed to pay tribute to Oklahoma pop artists, is expected to open later this year. The Journey guitarist made the announcement at a news conference ahead of a concert with Def Leppard Monday night at the BOK Center. OKPOP executive director Jeff Moore was also present at the briefing. “We’re going to get a nice collection for you all,” Schon told reporters. “I am going to go through my zillion guitars and figure out which ones I am going to ship, and I’m also going to get you a giant platinum plaque with all our records in it and dedicate it to the museum,” he added. The Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame and the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductee is the only remaining original member of Journey. Copyright(c) 2018 All Rights ReservedLess «
