NEAL SCHON AND JEFF SCOTT SOTO FORM SUPERGROUP:
February 23, 2004
It’s official, Jeff Scott Soto is now working with Neal Schon, Deen Castronovo (Journey) and bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake, Blue Murder) on a new band that is an extension of a project called Planet Us, featuring Neal, Deen, Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony & Slash that disbanded late last year.
Jeff & Neal met for the first time at the Winter Namm Convention in LA. After jamming together with Jeff’s band, Alex & Gary, immediate plans were set to write & record together which has now flourished into the new band.
Six songs were recently recorded in San Francisco at Jonathan Cain’s studio & will be mixed for shopping this month. Look out for potential live dates in the US soon to present the new band…as of yet, the band is unnamed but this will change in the next days as the guys are making final decisions on their choices.
