Late last week, Neal Schon hinted at a reunion between himself and guitarist Carlos Santana in an interview with Australian music website Noise11.
Ringo At The Ryman, recorded on Ringo Starr’s 2012 tour with his most recent incarnation of the All Starr Band, features some classic songs from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, with one song the present day thrown in.
Rolie says that he had a blast performing with Journey, and that he was surprised by the audience reaction, as he had been out of the band for nearly three decades by that point. “I was kind of shocked. A friend of mine was in the audience, and a guy right behind him said ‘That’s Greg f***ing Rolie!’ I didn’t know that was my middle name!”
One of the hottest tours of the summer was The Beach Boys/Brian Wilson reunion. On the list of legendary bands who are estranged from important former (living) members, Santana ranks high. So what would it take to get the group’s original singer, Gregg Rolie, back into the fold for an album and/or tour?
Summer’s here, which means the time is right for dancing in the seats (or on the lawn, if you’re on a tight budget) under the stars. As the temperature rises, rock, pop and country tours tend to leave arenas to give fans the experience of hearing their favorite performers live under the stars (or under the rain, if you’re unlucky).
