As we recently reported, 80’s rock band Journey abruptly fired their drummer Deen Castronovo, with only the ambiguous reasoning of a “domestic incident” as the initial reasoning for his replacement by Omar Hakim for their recent gig at the Hollywood Bowl.  Well, now TMZ, following up on the story that they broke on the 18th, has learned that Castronovo’s firing was likely due to sexual abuse and rape charges.  According to TMZ, the district attorney’s office added rape, sexual abuse, coercion and unlawful use of a weapon to the initially more ambiguous “domestic incident” claims. Castronovo is being held without bail in Marion County, Oregon. He is due in court on Tuesday.
