A Conversation With Neal “Vortex” Schon
On the heels of the release of his latest solo album, Vortex, which is terrific, Neal took the time to grant me an interview. Speaking with him was an absolute honor, and we covered a lot of ground in our discussion. We spoke about everything, including his thoughts on working with Steve Perry, John Waite and Deen Castronovo, as well as how his latest masterpiece, Vortex, came to fruition.
I hope you enjoy the interview. And don’t forget to pick up a copy of Vortex. If you’re a classic rock fan, or just someone who appreciates inspired instrumental music, you’ll love it.
A Conversation With Deen Castronovo
Today, I interviewed one of my all-time favorite drummers, Deen Castronovo of Revolution Saints, Journey and formerly Bad English. Deen was a pleasure to speak with and we covered a lot of ground, everything from his drumming as a child to his current project with Revolution Saints. Speaking of which, make sure you pick up a copy of their debut album when it’s released on February 24. It’s the greatest melodic rock album I’ve heard in years – stay tuned for my review of it. Until then, enjoy my interview with Deen.

This summer Journey is on the road with the Steve Miller Band and the Tower of Power, performing for sold-out crowds across North America.

The current lineup puts on a phenomenal show that shouldn’t be missed.

Journey: When You Love A Woman
I discovered Journey several summers ago while down the shore. It was fitting because the band’s music is perfect for this season; it’s uplifting and infectious. My all-time favorite Journey song is the #1 hit, “When You Love A Woman.” It was the lead single from Trial By Fire, the one and only time the classic lineup, featuring Steve Perry and Steve Smith, reunited for an album. As you’ll see from the music video below, this song is perfect. While the entire band shines on this track, Jonathan Cain’s beautifully powerful piano melody and Steve Perry’s majestic vocal steal the show.
