Deen Castronovo
-- the current touring drummer for Journey -- has pled NOT GUILTY to attacking his girlfriend during a domestic incident in Oregon.

TMZ broke the story ... Deen was arrested over the weekend after a heated argument with his GF allegedly turned physical. Dude was hit with a laundry list of charges .... including assault, coercion, criminal mischief, interfering with making a report, and harassment.

This morning, Deen went in front of a judge and pled not guilty to everything.

A rep for Deen had previously told us the rocker believes "it was a misunderstanding that should not have been escalated to such a level in the first place."

The fight started because she found out the whole band had been gangbanging whatshername

I know the band was popular in the 70's but does he have to use a microphone from the 70's? They make them smaller now Sparky!

Deen Castronovo is my neigbor, not even kidding! He rents the house across the street from me, I saw him get arrested. A couple of weekends ago we heard a some noise coming from his house and looked out to see him and his girlfriend arguing in the driveway. I believe he said she was cheating on him. She was very upset and got in her car, before she left though, she hit his car and drove away. Cops came and they searched his house, later arrested. It was a very exciting night.

After working his entire life, now Neal's legacy will simply be a punchline. He's thrown away his credibility by hooking up with a woman who's popularity is right up there with Casey Anthony. A compulsive liar, manipulator, and control freak, Salahi's negative effects on Neal are undoubtedly spilling over onto the rest of the bad. Salahi has alread taken Neal down, next she'll take the entire band down. Salahi is an unstoppable negative force, hiding behind a phony smile. Could she be the anti-Christ ?!

I bet Steve Perry is SOOOOOO glad he detached from the band. He stated back in the late 80's he jumped ship because of some bad behaviors going on in the band. Guess nonsense has been going on with the members of the band for a long time & Perry wanted none of it. I would hate to see such a class act as Perry go down with them now.
