Music facts, music trivia, interesting stories and much more. Introducing the "Did You Know" page about American rock band, Train.
Train is an American rock band that was formed in 1993 in San Francisco, and currently consists of Patrick Monahan (lead vocals), Luis Maldonado (guitar), Hector Maldonado (bass, vocals), Jerry Becker (keyboards, guitar), Sakai Smith (backup vocals), and Nikita Houston (backup vocals). Drew Shoals who was the drummer, decided to leave the band in January 2019 in order to return to practicing law.
Columbia Records rejected them in 1996, so the band decided to finance their first album for themselves for $25,000. In 1998, after Train released their first album on their own, Columbia Records signed them to their label.
With their debut album, Train, the band achieved mainstream success, especially with the hit from the album, "Meet Virginia." Their second studio album from 2001, Drops of Jupiter, contained the lead single "Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)", which won two Grammy Awards in 2002. The album was certified double platinum in the US and Canada and to this day, this album remains the band's best-selling album.
To this day, Train has released 10 studio albums, 2 live albums, one video album and one compilation album. Since their debut in the music industry, the band has sold more than 10 million albums and 30 million tracks all over the world.
