Drake Bell to Join Amtrak to Celebrate National Train Day


Actor and Recording Artist, Drake Bell will perform at Los Angeles Union Station at a free concert to help Amtrak celebrate its first annual National Train Day on Saturday, May 10, 2008. The concert is scheduled for 2:30 p.m., in the station’s historic ticket concourse.

Bell has developed a dedicated fan base through his roles on Nickelodeon’s The Amanda Show (starring Amanda Bynes) and Drake and Josh. He grew up listening to the classic rock of the 60’s, and this influence is clearly demonstrated in the catchy harmonies and hooks of his guitar-driven, pop/rock sound. Often compared to artists such as Jason Mraz and John Mayer, Bell’s music will appeal to audiences of all ages. He recently appeared on several national talk shows to promote his new movie, “Superhero Movie.”

“We’re thrilled that Drake Bell will be celebrating National Train Day with us,” said Emmett Fremaux, Amtrak’s Vice President, Marketing & Product Development. “Whether you’re a frequent train passenger or you’re new to train travel, we welcome you to attend the National Train Day event in Los Angeles to have a great time and learn more about the vital role rail plays in our nation’s transportation system.”

The date of National Train Day, May 10, holds special meaning as it is the anniversary of the completion of the first transcontinental railroad at Promontory Summit, Utah in 1869. At Promontory Summit, the east coast and west coast were connected for the first time by rail. From Promontory Summit in 1869 to the creation of Amtrak in 1970 to the launch of Acela Express in 2000, Amtrak employees across the country will celebrate the history of train travel while looking towards the future on National Train Day.

Los Angeles Union Station, located at 800 N. Alameda Street, is one of four of Amtrak’s largest stations (Washington, New York and Chicago) where visitors may take part in a variety of activities including this live performance, photography exhibits, trip planning, children’s activities, VIP appearances and trip giveaways scheduled throughout that day.

The station is served by five Amtrak routes, (Coast Starlight, Pacific Surfliner, Southwest Chief, Sunset Limited and the Texas Eagle) a total of 36 trains a day. The station is considered a national landmark, as well as a historic Los Angeles monument.

Drake Bell Gets to Star With Heroes


DESERET NEWS; SALT LAKE CITY, UT

With “Superhero Movie,” actor Drake Bell is going old school, aiming for the heights of parody classics like “Naked Gun” and “Airplane!” by working with such experts as Leslie Nielsen, Robert Hays and producer David Zucker.

“I grew up on this stuff,” says Bell, 21. “I grew up on ‘The Naked Gun’ and Leslie Nielsen and the Zuckers and ‘Airplane!’ and all that stuff. Just to be able to be around these guys — Robert Hays, come on.

“It’s just amazing to be able to be a part of something like this.”

“Superhero Movie” largely spoofs the comic-book franchises of recent years, everything from “Batman” and “Spider-Man” to “Fantastic Four” and “X-Men.” Bell loves those films, especially the ones featuring Bruce Wayne.

“I’ve always been a big, huge Batman fan,” he says. “I can’t wait till ‘The Dark Knight’ comes out.”

In addition to the new Christopher Nolan-directed series, he also appreciates the older versions.

“I loved the Tim Burton ones,” he says. “Loved ‘Batman,’ loved ‘Batman Returns,’ loved ‘Batman Forever.’ I didn’t like the one with (Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Mr. Freeze) so much, with George Clooney, but I still like it because it’s ‘Batman.”‘

He got a kick out of having superhero powers.

“Flying was the most fun,” says Bell, who stars as Rick Riker, aka Dragonfly. “Climbing the wall (like Spider-Man) was great.”

In real life, Bell isn’t a superhero, but he does have an extra share of talent. He started acting at age 5 and got into music at 12. As the star of the 2004-07 Nickelodeon sitcom “Drake & Josh,” he was able to show off both passions.

“I love ’em both,” he says by phone from Los Angeles. “There’s not one I love more — well, maybe music more than the acting. But they’re both super-close to me.”

Getting to integrate his music into his TV show was a huge advantage in developing a fan base, he says.

“I think it’s nice that the show lent itself to my music,” says Bell. “It makes sense if you see me playing guitar outside the show because I play guitar on the show; I write songs on the show. It’s not a complete disconnect for young people or anybody.

“It’s not like, ‘Oh, why all of a sudden is the guy from “Malcolm in the Middle” in a band playing guitar? Are we gonna like his music?’

“My music on the show is all my music. I wrote it all. So it’s not that big of a jump.”

Bell’s influences are obvious in his songs.

“That’s what I grew up on — the Beatles, the Beach Boys, Queen, the Who, all that stuff,” he says.

He hopes to balance his two careers, just as his idols Elvis Presley, Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson did.

“They sold just as many records as they did movie tickets,” he says.

Bell gained an even greater appreciation for work and life after a car accident in December 2005 left him with serious injuries to his neck, face and jaw.

“The world’s a completely more beautiful and different place,” he says.

However, a part of him remains cautious.

“It’s kind of weird ’cause I still am injured,” he says. “It’s tough approaching these stunts and these acrobatics and things without being leery at all. But once you get through it, you watch it back and you’re laughing and it’s fun and it’s all good.”

That’s definitely good because Bell doesn’t have a backup plan.

“This is what I’ve wanted to do ever since I was little,” he says. “I’ve wanted to be Dean Martin and Elvis, and I’ve just wanted to entertain people and go be on TV and go get interviewed on late- night talk shows. This has been my dream from Day One.”

Drake Bell is Mr Karaoke by Cosmo Girl Magazine


drake_bell_1189181930.jpg

Drake Bell and his Nickelodeon character share much more than the same name and cute face—they both love some good ol’ rock n’ roll! Whether he’s belting out The Beatles karaoke-style in his car or playing guitar with his band (their album “It’s Only Time” is coming out on Universal Motown Records on December 5th), Drake makes us all want to be a groupie!

IF YOU’RE JUST HAVING ONE OF THOSE BAD DAYS, HOW DO YOU GET THROUGH IT?

With a good melody…music gets me through everything. The best place for me is in my car, listening to my stereo. I am “Mr. Karaoke Guy” in the car completely. I just go with it and don’t care what anyone else thinks—I’m singing, man!”

HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU FIRST STARTED SINGING?

I started playing the guitar and singing at about 11 or 12.

WHAT ABOUT WHEN YOU STARTED ACTING?

When I was 5 I did a commercial for Whirlpool sitting on a tree stump eating a popsicle that dripped all over my clothes. After that, I was like, “You know what? I think I’ll just stick with this!”

WHAT’S THE BEST THING ABOUT MUSIC AS OPPOSED TO ACTING?

It’s completely personal—your own ideas. It’s being able to express to the world how you feel, instead of how somebody else does. Right now, creatively for me, music is such a more rewarding outlet.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE SOUND OF YOUR MUSIC TO SOMEONE WHO HASN’T HEARD IT BEFORE?

It’s very Beatles, Beach Boys, but with a very modern sound.

HOW DO YOU GET READY BEFORE A BIG SHOW?

I get super nervous before I get on stage but we all just hang out and get really excited. We get juiced and get up there and play—it’s awesome!

HOW DO YOU CALM YOURSELF DOWN WHEN YOU’RE NERVOUS?

I just go with it. There’s not much I can do. I’m nervous the first few songs and then I’m like, “I got this audience, I’m ready!”
