Journey‘s Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain have settled the lawsuit they filed last year against the band’s former drummer Steve Smith and bassist Ross Valory.
The band’s management released a statement saying, “Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain acknowledge the valuable contributions that both Ross Valory and Steve Smith have made to the music and the legacy of Journey. Ross Valory and Steve Smith wish their former bandmates well and much success in the future. Journey looks forward to continuing to tour and make new music for their dedicated fans around the world.”
Schon and Cain filed the $10-million dollars lawsuit against them on March 3rd, 2020, claiming they attempted a “coup” in order to gain control of the Journey trademark.
The two were immediately fired and replaced by drummer Narada Michael Walden and bassist Randy Jackson, who was a member in the late ’80s.
Journey have been recording new music, which they plan to release this year.
