After the failed Planet Us project with Sammy Hagar did not produce an album, Neal Schon was determined to see the material he had written come to life. According to Schon, "I was angry because we had plans and I had done a lot of pre-work.
I wrote a lot of songs, about 30 or more, and I had just done a lot of work and put a lot of energy into it. A few days later I cooled off and I just re-grouped and got to my senses and I put the pieces of the puzzle back together again with some different guys. We played a little minute set and the people pretty much went off; they loved it. Immediately, I knew we had some chemistry and that it would work. While in Los Angeles, Schon also New Position - Soul SirkUS - World Play a showcase featuring Mendoza known for his work with Whitesnake and was impressed with his ability.
