Deen Castronovo exploded on the scene with heavy rockers Bad English, led by his future Journey band mate Neal Schon. Bad English enjoyed great success throughout the late 80s and early 90s, all the while proving that Deen was a drumming force to be recognized.
Deen was the natural choice to join Journey when the band reformed and Steve Smith decided to continue on his path with Vital Information. For Deen, it was his dream gig and it's obvious by his enthusiasm on stage. Deen's solid back up vocals add another element to Journey's timeless music and he's a huge part of their continuing success, which includes receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Deen's other playing credits include Hardline, Ozzy Osbourne, Steve Vai, Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, Paul Rodgers, Tony MacAlpine and a solo project entitled "Soul Sirkus" with Neal Schon, Marco Mendoza and Jeff Scott Soto.
