Train is an American band from San Francisco, USA.
Compromised of Patrick Monahan (vocals), Jimmy Stafford (guitar, vocals) and Scott Underwood (drums, percussion), the trio first released their self-titled album in 1998 and they had a hit with their single “Meet Virginia” and they followed this up with their second album “Drops of Jupiter” which was a massive success in the US and also gained them two Grammy Awards: Best Rock Song and Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s) (2002).
A year later, Train produced their third studio album My Private Nation which reached platinum status; although by this time original members Rob Hotchkiss and Charlie Colin left the band and a fourth album flopped, leading to a 3 year hiatus.
