Journey's Deen Castronovo Talks "Revelation"
By Mark Uricheck
Here's a new August 2008 interview with Journey drummer Deen Castronovo. Deen talks here about Journey's runaway success that is their new "Revelation" CD. He gives some insight into the CD's inception, recording, and eventual release through Wal-Mart, which incidentally the band couldn't be happier with. Deen also talks about the amazing find in new vocalist Arnel Pineda. Finding a new singer via You Tube? Could be the wave of the future. Interesting note: Deen was a bit hoarse the day we chatted, as he revealed he and Journey guitarist Neal Schon took in a Slipknot concert the night before. Apparently, Deen's a big fan of the masked metal titans, and it turns out those guys have love for journey as well. Very cool. Journey's in the middle of a big summer tour with Heart and Cheap Trick - make sure you check out Journey online for tour dates at www.journeymusic.com, and do pick up the new cd/dvd package that is "Revelation". You won't be disappointed in the new tunes.
