(Classic Rock) Neal Schon has praised stand-in Journey drummer Omar Hakim as an "unbelievable musician." The band had to bring in a last-minute replacement for Deen Castronovo after he was arrested for assault earlier this month. They moved fast to recruit Hakim, who's worked with Miles Davis, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Kate Bush, among others.

He made his debut at the Hollywood Bowl over the weekend, where they were backed by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Schon had the following to say to 98.7 The Gater:

"Omar hit the ground running and then some. I can't believe he played as well as he did, because he didn't really know the material, and he had to count everything off for the orchestra." Read more here.
