Train's Pat Monahan makes bid to join TODAY

If Grammy-winning band Train ever decides to pull into its final station, singer Pat Monahan says he's got plans for a second career.

"My goal is that one day, you'll say 'why don't you just stay,' and I'll join you guys every morning," he told TODAY's Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie when the band came to play on the plaza Friday. "I've got my own podcast. I'm just trying to get into your world."

The band played under a gloomy sky to cheering fans, blasting through four songs: "Soul Sister," "Bruises" (which featured a duet with country star Ashley Monroe), "Drive By" and "50 Ways to Say Goodbye."

They are currently on their "Mermaids of Alcatraz" tour, and Monahan noted it has taken them to all kinds of concerts: "Tomorrow we're in Connecticut to do a barbecue, and then we do a show in Boston," he chuckled. "It's really fun."

Perhaps he's preparing for a "where in the world is Pat Monahan" segment when he joins the TODAY anchors next time.
