Talking with Journey drummer Deen Castronovo was like main-lining rocket fuel!
He’s been in the band for the last 15 years but he still sounds like a kid on Christmas morning that just got that new bike he’d been dying for.
Well, maybe you’d be this enthusiastic too if you were in the band that was voted the 5th best American rock band in history in a USA Today opinion poll, had their song Don't Stop Believin' named the No. 1 most-downloaded song of the 20th Century, and got that song showcased in the critical last scene in the series finale of the Sopranos!
Don't Stop Believin' - which has been on Journey's set list for three decades - was named the No. 1 most-downloaded song of the 20th Century by SoundScan.
Yup life is good for Journey. Listen to the interview here.

Florida based prog metal outfit Mindcage have been at it for quite some some. Tune in as I chat with new singer Jeff Hignite about the new album Our "Own Devices" as well as the Kiss RRHOF soap opera, music from the album and more.
