Journey members in conflict after keyboardist plays 'Don't stop believin' in Mar-a-Lago

Band co-founder Neal Schon sent a letter to fellow mwmber Jonathan Clain, making it clear that the band´s music will not be used for political purposes.

The members of the rock band Journey seem far from reuniting on stage. Last month the keyboardist Jonathan Clain went to former President Donald Trump's property at Mar-a-Lago, where he performed some of the band´s hit songs such as Don't stop Believin. The performance took place at a party attended by many Republicans and the "chorus" included Trumpist figures such as Marjorie Taylor Greene, Kimberly Guilfoyle and Kari Lake.

The Journey brand

The performance prompted Journey guitarist and co-founder Neal Schon to send a formal letter to Cain where he made it clear that the group's songs will not be used for political purposes. In the letter obtained by Variety, Schon expressed his displeasure with Cain for playing the band's music at the former president's private parties and has demanded a cease and desist order against his partner.

The letter, reads in part:

"Although Mr. Cain is free to express his personal beliefs and associations, when he does that on behalf of Journey or for the band, such conduct is extremely deleterious to the Journey brand as it polarizes the band's fans and outreach. Journey is not, and should not be, political.

Jonathan Cain is part of Trump's inner circle and his wife, Paula White, has been the former president's spiritual advisor for eight years.
