Classic rock fans worried about the rapid extinction of double-drummers ... "Don't Stop Believing" because Journey has brought Deen Castronovo back and didn't want to have a difficult conversation with Narada Michael Warden.

Welcome Deen and Narada to the "Real Housewives" dramas of Journey.

From Ultimate Classic Rock:


Journey guitarist Neal Schon has confirmed on social media that former drummer Deen Castronovo has rejoined the band.

Schon confirmed Castronovo's return in a series of Facebook comments below a San Francisco Chronicle story about Journey, which he shared on Wednesday. One fan commented on the post, "So is Deen Castronovo back in the band full time now?" to which Schon responded simply, "Yes."


Responding to another fan who implored the band to "bring back Deen again," Schon wrote, "Deen is back. We are double (2) drummers now with Narada [Michael Walden, who joined the band in 2020]."

Schon did not reveal the extent to which Castronovo will participate in immediate and future Journey shows.

The guitarist teased Castronovo's return on Tuesday when he tweeted a photo that appeared to be from rehearsals for the band's Friday-night concert at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, which precedes Journey's Sunday performance at Lollapalooza. "Ok … Double trouble Chicago @NaradaMWalden @DeenTheDrummer Narada Michael Walden and the return of Deen Castronovo on Drums @AragonBallroom @lollapalooza," Schon captioned his post.
