Last week someone told me that this was their reward. Makes sense.
My reward is proving people right. My goal is to prove Train fans right. All these years liking, loving a band that is so easily put in the “lame bin” and you guys stuck with us fighting the good fight.
I want you to be the ones that smile when your friends come around and tell you that they finally get it.
THAT is my goal.
You guys have been there through the thick and thin and I will die trying to make sure you are proven right!
Here we go!
This week on the Patcast, we sit down with Gabe Saporta, lead singer and philosopher of the band Cobra Starship.

Happy Labor Day! Our guest this week survived the era of 80s hair metal, and today he tells his story. As the drummer and a founding member of the band Danger Danger, he toured with all the biggest acts of the 80s and early 90s, and saw the meteoric rise of the metal scene. On today’s Patcast, we sit down with for some stories, live music, and a great interview with Steve West.
I’ve been doing this for awhile now. Train is 20 years old and I suppose that means that Jimmy and I have been doing this together for 20 years. Before we met we had both played in a lot of bands and done a lot of gigging in PA and Illinois and then in California.
We’re still just kids that had music heroes and we wanted to be a part of that.
I want to say that Jimmy has been a great partner. He’s a lovely, caring guy for those of you who don’t know him. He’s a great guitar player and an easy going person and he’s THE easiest guy ever to get along with. I consider him my friend. I’m grateful for Jimmy.
Jerry was our first tour manager. A great musician and a great guy, Jerry makes a big impression on people. He works harder than all of us and he smiles through it all.
Hector is a quiet and a lovely talent. He’s a great singer and guitarist but he shines on bass.
Drew, my old friend, is an exceptional drummer and a great guy to be in a conversation with. He has a law degree so there are many subjects he can keep you up on.
Sakai and Nikita are 2 crazy great singers from the Bay and we are so lucky to have them. They show us how to be happy. They’re THE best.
Truth is YOU guys are the best. This is a quick note of thanks for being so good to us. If you think you go unknown I guarantee that you do not. We see you and love you. Thank you all so much. Can’t wait to see you.
Lyle Workman is one hell of a talented guitar player. After playing on the Pat Monahan solo record years ago, we lost touch with him for a while, but in the meantime Lyle’s been very busy becoming one of the most in-demand session musicians and touring guitarists in the music industry, and the go-to soundtrack guy for almost every single Judd Apatow movie! You might be aware of him, but you’ve already heard him. Get to know Lyle Workman this week on the Patcast…
