Journey drummer Deen Castronovo recovering following back surgery

Journey drummer Deen Castronovo is recovering at home following surgery on two herniated discs in his back.

“Hey all!,” shared the rocker on social media earlier this week. “September 23rd is the day I’m FINALLY getting surgery on my back! L-4 & L-5 discs are herniated! Grateful I could get it done with ample time to recover before Journey’s Residencies in December! Say some prayers!”

Catronovo’s social media team shared an update from his wife, Dee, following the procedure: "Just wanted to share an update from Deen from his wife Dee! He is home and doing great after his surgery!

‘Mr. Handsome is Home,’ says Dee. “Deen and I sincerely want to thank you all for the Love, Prayers and Kind Thoughts. We Love and Appreciate each and Every one of you. Let The Healing Begin.”

Following the addition of new members, drummer Narada Michael Walden and bassist Randy Jackson, in the spring of 2020, Castronovo rejoined the Journey lineup two months ago ahead of the group’s return to live performances with a club show and appearance at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL.

Journey will next be seen playing a residency at the Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas in December. See also:
