Music career

Bell's first association with music was when he was in the 2001 movie Chasing Destiny. He has also done a duet with former savage garden member Darren Hayes. He co-starred with The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey who gave him his initial guitar lessons. Bell's first major performance was when he performed the first song he ever wrote entitled Lost A Lover on The Amanda Show in 2002. But his career as a musician really got noticed when he wrote and performed the theme song for the show Drake & Josh entitled Found a Way which was included on Drake & Josh: Songs from and inspired by the hit TV show, along with two other compositions he has written and performed. Found A Way was also on his debut album Telegraph, and was released independently on September 27, 2005.

In 2005, Bell collaborated with Hawk Nelson in a song called Bring Em' Out which was featured in the movie Yours, Mine and Ours. He and fellow band mate Michael Corcoran do all the score music for Drake & Josh, Zoey 101, and iCarly. In 2006 he signed with Universal Records, on which his first single "I Know" was released on October 17, 2006. Shooting for the video of "I Know" took place in October 2006. Drake's second album, entitled It's Only Time, was released on December 5, 2006. Drake performed live on MTV's TRL the day after it was released. In Summer 2007, Bell went on a Nextfest tour in support of It's Only Time, headlining alongside Aly & AJ and Corbin Bleu. In an interview with Gibson Lifestyle, he expressed that it wasn't the tour of his dreams. Referring to his fellow tour mates, Bell said, "They’re all nice people, and they do what they do well, I guess. This isn’t my scene, though."

On October 16, 2007 iTunes released a Radio Disney Single Edit Version of his song Makes Me Happy. This makes it the third version of this song, and his second single for his album It's Only Time. He also co-wrote and sang the theme song for the show iCarly "Leave It All To Me" with Miranda Cosgrove, and on May 24, 2008 the official music video for the song aired, and Bell was included in the video, along with Miranda Cosgrove and the rest of the iCarly cast. Bell has recorded a theme song featuring Sara Paxton for his movie Superhero Movie called Superhero! Song. This song can be heard in the ending credits of Superhero Movie and on Drake Bell's Official MySpace. This song was made available on iTunes as a digital download single on April 8, 2008. Critics have described his music as influenced by The Beatles and The Beach Boys.[3]

Bell's third album is slated for a Fall 2008 release, but in interviews he has explained that it is a double disc album and he is making a movie along side of the album so he stated it is very "heady" and will take up most of his time, though nothing is final, so the date can't be determined at this point, though it is most likely that it will be released on 13th October 2008.[4][5]

To celebrate Bell's 22nd Birthday, he performed a concert in Denver, Colorado. The cast of Drake & Josh were invited.

Car accident

On December 29, 2005, Bell was involved in a car accident on Los Angeles' Pacific Coast Highway. He was in the car with a friend, and a truck ran a red light causing a head on collision. As his car was a 1966 Ford Mustang, the steering wheel was made of wood and metal, the seatbelts were only around the waist, and there were no airbags. Because of this, his face smashed into the steering wheel, resulting in a broken neck, six dislodged teeth, a jaw broken in three places, a cracked skull, and a deep cut across his chin which he said he could stick his tongue through leaving a two-and-a-half inch scar. Bell underwent plastic surgery to fix his face. In an interview, Bell said that it was scary being hooked up to tubes, fed only liquids and not knowing whether he would be okay, and if he could ever sing, act, or even tie his shoes again.'

Instrumentation

Bell has been seen with a number of guitars on Drake & Josh. One being a copy of a Fender Stratocaster seen throughout Seasons one and two and two episodes in Season three. Two Squier by Fender Strat copies were seen in the Season two episode, Guitar. There was a black one and a red one. The red one wasn't played, but instead destroyed (and replaced) by Josh. Throughout Seasons three and four, Bell's main instrument were two Gibson Les Paul Classics. In the show, he mostly used a wine red one, but in a few episodes he was seen with an ebony one. He was also seen with various acoustic guitars and a Rickenbacker 325. he had a broken leg and dick
