Train: Picasso at the Wheel Summer Tour 2015 with Special Guests The Fray and Matt Nathanson
- The current, seven-strong lineup: Pat Monahan, Jimmy Stafford, Jerry Becker, Hector Maldonado, Drew Shoals, and backing vocalists Sakai Smith and Nikita Houston
- Select chart-toppers: “Meet Virginia,” “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me),” “Calling All Angels,” “Hey Soul Sister,” “Marry Me,” “Drive By”
- Why Monahan doesn’t mind if those songs eclipse the band’s name recognition: “Some artists release songs and they start at the top of iTunes because of name recognition. We always start at the bottom and work our way to the top. I became happy about that, because it means it’s based on the power of the song.”
- Train by the numbers: more than 10 million albums and 30 million tracks sold, three Grammy Awards, two Billboard Music Awards, and seven studio albums, including last year’s Bulletproof Picasso
- Point of departure: 1994 in San Francisco, beginning as a five-piece band
- Point of arrival: 1998’s “Meet Virginia,” on the band’s self-titled debut album
- Length of “Drops of Jupiter”’s layover in the Top 40: 10 months—most of 2001
- Key cuts from the new album: “Cadillac, Cadillac,” a sunny head-nodder with Caribbean elements, the Western-tinged “Angel in Blue Jeans” (complete with music video starring Danny Trejo), and the newest hit, “Bulletproof Picasso”
- How you met The Fray: The piano-driven rockers scored their first major hit with 2005’s “How to Save a Life.”
- How you met Matt Nathanson: with his breakout hit “Come On Get Higher,” or via the smirking melody of 2013’s “Kinks Shirt”
- When you first heard the British singer and Grammy’s Best New Artist of 2015: when his intensely soulful voice rang out on Disclosure’s smash single “Latch,” making him an overnight sensation
- When he earned his first No. 1 single: in 2013, when he was a guest vocalist on Naughty Boy’s “La La La”
- When he released his solo debut: in 2014 with In the Lonely Hour, which spawned even more No. 1 hits
- Its most famous hit: “Stay With Me,” an emotional anvil with pleading lyrics, lush vocals, and a stirring gospel choir, all of which helped it win one Grammy each for Record of the Year and Song of the Year
- Other songs you’ve sung/cried along to: “I’m Not the Only One,” “Lay Me Down,” “Money on My Mind,” “Like I Can”
- What Smith told Rolling Stone about his pop-star aspirations: “I want to be a pop star that isn’t really skinny, a pop star who doesn’t have a perfectly even face. I want to change what a pop star is.”
In the middle of Train's latest tour, frontman Pat Monahan reflects on his favorite venues.
After 20 years on the road, the band-slash-winemakers have learned a thing or two about great restaurants.
