Train singer Patrick Monahan has revealed that he thanked Howard Stern while accepting an award at Sunday’s Grammys ceremony because the DJ has always supported his band.
In an interview with USA Today, the vocalist explained that he felt it was important to praise Stern after Train won the ‘Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals’ prize for their hit ‘Hey, Soul Sister’.
“He’s been supportive from the time we were little to the time when we didn’t exist as a band and didn’t know if we wanted to continue,” he said.
Monahan also revealed that he’s developed a personal friendship with the controversial SIRIUS XM radio host.
“Howard’s a dear friend. I sang at his wedding. I suppose I should have thanked my wife instead of him. I’m probably in big trouble now,” the musician teased.
