Journey keyboardist and guitarist Jonathan Cain responded following a cease-and-desist order issued by fellow Journey member Neal Schon. The order was in response to Cain’s performance of “Don’t Stop Believin'” at an event held at Mar-a-Lago last month.

In Schon’s cease and desist order, he outlined that Cain was politicizing the band’s music and was polarizing fans in the process.

“Mr. Cain has no right to use Journey for politics. His politics should be his own personal business,” the letter read. “He should not be capitalizing on Journey’s brand to promote his personal political or religious agenda to the detriment of the band.”

In response to the letter, Cain told Fox News Digital that his bandmate should “look in the mirror” when it comes to causing harm to the Journey band.

“I have watched him damage our brand for years and am a victim of both his–and his wife’s–bizarre behavior. Neal sued Live Nation twice, losing both times, and damaging our ability to ever work with them again;” the guitarist explained. “Neal outrageously tried to take away trademarks from Steve Perry;”


“Neal and his wife continually insult the professionalism of numerous accountants, road managers, and management firms with endless legal threats and their bullying, toxic, and incoherent emails;” he continued, adding that the lead guitarist “argues online with fans who don’t see eye to eye with him; and Neal and his wife recklessly spend Journey’s money until there is none left for operating costs.”

The 71-year-old Cain performed at an event for the former president on November 23rd where he was seen alongside Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), Kimberly Guilfoyle, and Kari Lake.

The band’s falling out didn’t just start with Cain’s performance at the Trump event, however. A recent legal battle occurred between Schon and Journey over his access to using the band’s credit card was rescinded, according to Fox News.

Cain accused Schon of charging over $1 million in personal expenses to the corporate account of the band which likely started the beef between the two performers.

Despite their back-and-forth, the band is still expected to perform for their 50th-anniversary tour.
