VH1’s Behind The Music kicks off a new season of storytelling this Sunday with a spotlight on Train, the quintessential American band. Tune-in to VH1 on Sunday at 9/8c to hear the rest of their story, but first whet your taste with this special sneak peak of the show’s first act.
These days, San Francisco’s hardest working band have it pretty good. Back on tour in support of their 6th album, California 37, we meet them in the back of a van where they are enjoying their success and each other’s company. It wasn’t always like this, though, and as we learn in these first few moments about Train’s rough beginnings, they had to overcome struggle and obscurity before they could bask these sunny “Hey Soul Sister” days. “I said, ‘Look, the path to success is going to suck, man, but you have to do it,'” Pat Monahan says, “I had to believe I was going to be a star.”
Be sure to tune-in when Behind The Music: Train premieres on Sunday, September 16 at 9/8c on VH1.
