Train bassist Charlie Colin was “dragged” on stage during a set by Natalie Merchant in Detroit last week (December 11) in order to dance with her, according to Train’s website ( “He was living proof that musicians really do become musicians because they can’t dance!” Colin’s bandmates joke, adding, “Nah…he did fine.”

Train and Merchant were sharing the bill of a holiday festival sponsored by a Detroit-area radio station.

Train concluded its string of holiday festival appearances Monday (December 17) in Seattle. The following day (December 18) the group’s DVD, Midnight Moon, arrived in stores. The release captures Train in a homecoming performance at San Francisco’s famed Warfield Theatre on May 26, the last concert on the group’s spring tour in support of its latest album, Drops Of Jupiter.
