Former Train bassist dies after 'slipping in shower'

Charlie Colin, a founding member of 90s pop rock band Train, has died after slipping over in a shower, according to reports.

The incident is understood to have happened in Belgium, where the 58-year-old had been house-sitting for a friend in Brussels.

According to TMZ, the star’s mother confirmed what had happened – but could not confirm exactly when he died. His sister also confirmed the musician’s death to US entertainment site, Variety.

The band, formed in San Francisco in 1993, released a statement on Instagram saying: “When I met Charlie Colin, front left, I fell in love with him.

“He was THE sweetest guy and what a handsome chap. Let’s make a band, that’s the only reasonable thing to do.

“His unique bass playing and beautiful guitar work helped get folks to notice us in SF (San Francisco) and beyond.

“I’ll always have a warm place for him in my heart. I always tried to pull him closer, but he had a vision of his own.

“You’re a legend, Charlie. Go charm the pants off those angels.”

Colin was a founding member of the band, alongside Pat Monahan, Rob Hotchkiss, Scott Underwood, and Jimmy Stafford, and with them recorded hits including “Drops of Jupiter” and “Marry Me”.

He was reportedly forced to leave the group in 2003 due to substance abuse issues.

The band recorded their most famous hit, “Hey, Soul Sister”, in 2009 following Colin’s departure from the group.
