That's what I thought too, until recently. Turned out he played on a fair bit of his own studio albums in the 70s, as well as being the drummer on Stevie Wonder's first #1 hit, the live "Fingertips Pt 2."I wonder if Gaye is a good fit. AFAIK he only worked briefly as a session-drummer for some months in 1961 but never again afterwards. Or am I wrong?
Wow!..i was clueless! as to Deans proficiency on vocals. I pressed play and was absolutely blown away. I stopped listening to Journey after raised on radio. Dean is very Steve Perry(ish). I'll be talking to people at work tomorrow asking dude!..have you ever heard Dean Castrinovo sing?..hes frikkin phenomenal. I don't know what to say.Deen Castronovo is by far and away one of the greatest.
