Foreigner leader Mick Jones blamed complications from heart surgery for his temporary absence from the road, but that wasn't really the whole story.
Mick Jones has taken to Facebook to praise Ryan Adams' new version of 'I Want to Know What Love Is,' Foreigner's chart-topping 1984 hit.
On the afternoon that we spoke with Mick Jones, he was phoning us from a somewhat unusual location -- a table at Starbucks where he stopped in with his assistant in the midst of a busy day of appointments.
Sammy Hagar confirms a story Mick Jones told us about engineer Donn Landee during the recording of Van Halen's '5150.'
Jones says the movie will be in production for the next six months, with an international release to follow.
Gramm and Jones met again on stage last summer for the first time in a decade.
Hagar and '5150' producer Mick Jones recently wrote a few songs together.
"I don’t know where it came from. I consider it a gift that was sent through me. I think there was something bigger than me behind it. I’d say it was probably written entirely by a higher force."
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.
