Oklahoma's own Music Hall of Fame inducted its newest member Friday night.

The Hall of Fame inducted Journey guitarist and native Oklahoman Neal Schon at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Schon has been the only constant member of the famous rock band since it formed in 1973.

The guitarist and vocalist was born on Tinker Air Force Base.

You can thank him, in part, for hits like "Don't Stop Believin'" and "Any Way You Want It." He helped write those and many more, but don't play them if you're ever around him.

He said he's over the novelty of hearing his band's music on the radio.

"I switch it," Schon said.

Neal joins the likes of Woody Guthrie, Merle Haggard, Blake Shelton, Ronnie Dunn and Carrie Underwood, among others in the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.
