(Classic Rock) Returned Journey drummer Steve Smith is planning to remain with the band for two years, he's said. He was confirmed this week as replacement for Deen Castronovo, who was fired after a drug-fuelled domestic violence incident resulted in a four-year probation sentence.

Smith's third stint with the band - and his first appearance with them since 1998 - will commence with their North American tour in May next year. He says: "I've enjoyed working with Journey guitarist Neal Schon for many years, and playing on his solo albums, including The Calling and his latest release Vortex.

"Over the years he has mentioned that he'd like to have me tour with Journey again. The invitation has always been appreciated - but with my busy schedule always being booked at least a year in advance, the timing was never right.

"Some changes within the band have once again brought me the invitation to tour and this time we were able to plan in advance and work a Journey tour into my schedule." Read more here.
