According to E! News, JOURNEY is getting paid a whopping $500,000 to perform at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida on Thursday night (August 30).

JOURNEY will appear at Liberty Plaza, a tented concert space. However, the band is reportedly not making a statement of any kind by playing the show. "It's an RNC event, but not one to endorse any candidate or party," a source tells E! News. "I believe JOURNEY and also ZAC BROWN [also on Thursday] are described as nonpartisan but they aren't aware of any of the details themselves. To JOURNEY, it's simple, one of hundreds of private [events] they get hired to do."

According to CinemaBlend.com, Romney himself is not paying for JOURNEY, nor is his official campaign. A political action committee which supports him is funding the appearance.

I just stopped believin.' :lol:

There's no shortage of private corporate events for bands to get paid on... I think all celebrities would really do well to stay the hell away from the political machines. There's just no way to shake that many hands, kiss that many asses and stab that many backs without needing an industrial-sized bottle of Purel. In the end, even if they don't view it as choosing sides, the fans probably will... and any way you slice it, they're bound to alienate a good portion of your fanbase, at least to some extent.

JOURNEY guitarist Neal Schon proposed to his girlfriend, onetime "Real Housewives Of D.C." star Michaele Salahi, on stage last night (Sunday, October 14) during the band's performance in Baltimore, Maryland at a Paul Reed Smith Guitars benefit for the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. Fan-filmed video footage of the proposal can be seen below.

Schon and Salahi, appeared on NBC's crown jewel, the "Today" show, in February to tell their side of the story that found Michaele abruptly leaving her husband and former "Housewives" co-star Tareq Salahi.

Salahi said she left her husband in late September of 2011 to escape a too-close, abusive relationship. "What happened between Tareq and I was him and I. It's between us," she explained. "And what he did is push me away. When there's control or abuse or hurting someone mentally ... it's not love. It's smothering."

She added, "I left that day not with plans to be gone forever. Our relationship was very controlled by Tareq. Anyone that watched the show, or even spent 24 hours with Tareq and I, knew what I had been through. That day I reached [out], Neal and I had been friends since the '90s, and I just wanted to be with someone that would help me sort through everything in my head. I didn't return because I couldn't endure anymore of what I had been through."

Schon also denied Tareq's assertion that the two men were previously friends. "I considered her a best friend, and I had to know Tareq because she was my best friend. Did [Tareq and I] know each other? Yes, but I wouldn't consider him a friend, and certainly not now!"

I bet the rest of the band just loves all this crap. First the media frenzy over her leaving her husband for him, then the stupid lawsuit, then the pathetic music video, and now the public proposal. It seems to me that Neal already has a harem of little bitches with his band, so this engagement seems unnecesary.

Meanwhile, their newest album (which I still like btw) is still available for $5 at your nearest Walmart.

I hate to sound like a "loon" (Suzi knows what I'm talking about) but I'm starting to think the stone really IS cracked.

Conspiracy theory: this entire thing is a publicity stunt. The break-up, the famous guitarist, all of it. If true, it would make one heck of a movie of the week.

Despite my recent loathing for Mr. Schon, I had a moment of weakness while in a music store and I bought his new CD "The Calling". Listened to about 3 tunes and that was it. He said he went into the studio on this one with "nothing planned"= all written in the moment. Yep. I believe it. Smitty sounds great on drums, but what i heard reminded me of his new-age stuff like he did on Electric World, which is my least fave CD of his.

My faves are still Late Nite and Beyond The Thunder- can't touch those... just awesome....

Now that he has a new muse, maybe she will inspire better work from him. :wink:
