According to MelodicRock.com, JOURNEY drummer Deen Castronovo has stepped down from his role in SOUL SIRKUS. Due to mutual agreement, Deen has decided to step down as drummer for SOUL SIRKUS as the workload between both SOUL SIRKUS and JOURNEY left him little to no personal/family time.Joining the ranks of SOUL SIRKUS (featuring Neal Schon, Jeff Scott Soto and Marco Mendoza) is Virgil Donati. An official press release is due this week, but news has leaked via an update on Virgil's website. The new lineup of the band will begin touring to support their debut, "World Play", in the spring of 2005 before JOURNEY embark on their summer tour. Regarded as the best drummer in Australia, Virgil Donati started his career with Aussie AOR favourites SOUTHERN SONS before moving to the U.S. and working as an in-demand session drummer. Samples of Virgil's work, including tracks from his own solo album can be heard at this location.
