Damon Albarn - Damon Albarn's Train Ride Terror

British rocker Damon Albarn was left terrified during a high-speed rail journey to Scotland when he was given a seat at the front of the train.
The Blur frontman is travelling around the U.K. with his music collective Africa Express, which includes fellow British musicians Carl Barat and Bombay Bicycle Club.
The stars headed to Glasgow, Scotland for a gig on Tuesday (04Sep12) but Albarn later confessed he was left shaken by the journey when the train driver invited the rocker to sit in his cab at the front.
Albarn tells the Daily Record newspaper, "I got a chance to sit right in the front seat beside the driver and it was a terrifying experience. It's really hard being up front. Everything was coming towards us so fast. I was never driving but I was zoning out at the countryside."
