Together with bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent) and drummer Deen Castronovo (Journey, Ozzy Osbourne), the guitar legend put together a new album album, So U , fusing jazz and blues together with hard rock.

SO U  includes vocals by bassist Marco Mendoza and Schön, as well as drummer Deen Castronovo. SO U features Schön along with Mendoza (Black Star Riders, Ted Nugent, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy) and Castronovo (Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, Steve Vai, Hardline) splitting vocal and writing duties, with many of the tracks also co-written by Night Ranger/Damn Yankee’s songwriter, singer and bassist Jack Blades.

  1. Wow, great rock ballad again today. Fantastic guitar solos and it was interesting to see how that drummer uses the sticks. Don’t know why but noticed it. Thank you for the information how this band came together. The guitarist has quite some history!

  2. Love this song! Thanks for the link Syl.

  3. Pretty song! What a great guitarist Neal Schon is!
