Journey Guitarist Neal Schon Undergoes Gall Bladder Surgery

Journey guitarist Neal Schon is the latest rocker to go under the knife this weekend.

Schon revealed on Twitter that he underwent emergency surgery at All Marin General Hospital to treat his gallbladder on Friday night (Feb. 8).

“Had to go into ER last night very inflamed-infected Gallbladder taken out and honestly couldn’t feel better,” he wrote. “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 says he is feeling much better, and was discharged late Saturday night (Feb. 9).

The news follows the announcement that former Fleetwood Mac member Lindsey Buckingham underwent emergency open heart surgery, causing vocal cord damage. Schon offered Buckingham prayers and wishes for “a speedy recovery” in a tweet.
