Neal Schon revealed he underwent emergency gallbladder surgery this weekend.

The Journey guitarist shared via Twitter, “Had to go into ER last night very inflamed-infected Gallbladder taken out and honestly couldn’t feel better? Just need a few days. I’ve apparently had this for the last 3 1/2 years and didn’t know it! I thought it was parasites. I’m feeling better then ever. CU soon Friends!”



Schon continued, “I’d like to thank Dr. Minnis for doing such an amazing job and All Marin General Hospital for Being incredibly Kind Ros- Keith & My beautiful Wife Michaele for alway continually being by my side and showing me what love really is.”


Schon’s surgery news comes shortly after news of Lindsey Buckingham having emergency open heart surgery that caused vocal cord damage.

Basically, it would be fantastic if no other classic rockers had to undergo emergency surgery in the near future.  Let’s not make this a trend!
