With their self-titled debut album in 1977, Foreigner immediately rose to the ranks of the biggest bands in rock, scoring a Top 20 LP that sold millions while spinning off multiple hit singles. But as quickly as they found success, they had to start worrying about whether they could maintain it with their next album.
Mick Jones is best know for his many years as the guitarist and songwriter in Foreigner, but he's also a notable producer who has twirled the knobs for both Billy Joel and Van Halen. He produced the latter's pivotal '5150' album, their first effort after replacing original lead singer David Lee Roth with Sammy Hagar.
Rumors have recently surfaced about the possibility of a Foreigner reunion between Mick Jones and Lou Gramm. However, they were quickly quashed by Gramm. In fact, a new interview with Gramm suggests that the singer is considering retiring, a concept that crosses his mind from time to time.
Legendary Foreigner singer Lou Gramm has not been a part of the band that made him famous in more than a decade, but in a new interview, he says that may be changing. The singer behind all-time rock classics such as 'Hot Blooded,' 'Double Vision' and 'Urgent' says his management has been talking about him re-joining the group for a reunion that would also serve as a farewell tour.
