Guitar legend Neal Schön has joined forces with bassist Marco Mendoza (Black Star Riders, Ted Nugent, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy) and drummer Deen Castronovo (Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, Steve Vai, Hardline) to create a unique body of work with jazz and blues-inspired virtuosic hard rock playing, entitled SO U.
The new album features Schön, Mendoza and Castronovo splitting vocal and writing duties, with many of the tracks also co-written Jack Blades (Night Ranger, Damn Yankees).
