Neal Schon appears to be asserting his dominance when it comes to his band Journey. Despite his ongoing legal battles with bandmate Jonathan Cain, the guitarist insists in a recent tweet that he “won’t take orders” about the band from anyone.

"No one is going to dictate to me at this point what I can and cannot do in regards to JOURNEY," Schon tweeted. "I haven't been here and not here to take orders- never have and never will. It's my band and I'll own it as I should and make the right changes as needed."

The post prompted one fan to ask him who was trying to “dictate" to him, with Schon responding, “Have a guess,” an indication he was talking about Cain. He also posted an image that read “narcissists act out with frustration, sulking, resentment and rage when things don’t go their way.”

As previously reported, Schon and Cain have been in the news a lot lately because of their legal battles. The most recent incident had Schon sending a cease-and-desist letter to Cain over a performance of “Don’t Stop Believin’” at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
