Speaking with TMZ outside an airport, Cain insisted that the White House photo op with singer Arnel Pineda, bassist Ross Valory, and Cain’s wife would not drive the band apart, despite what founding member Neal Schon has indicated. “No way,” Cain stated emphatically when asked if the band will break up.
Cain’s wife, Paula White-Cain, serves as a spiritual adviser to President Donald Trump, hence the White House visit. When Neal Schon heard about the trip, he took to social media – leveling complaints against the band
“Journey should never be used and exploited by anyone, especially band members for politics or any one religion,” Schon wrote. “I’ve been here since 1972 and this has always been our belief. This was with intent to exploit the brand and use the name.”
“I haven’t talked to him, I don’t know what his feelings are,” Cain told TMZ. Well, unless Cain has been living under a rock, Schon has made his feelings pretty clear.
