Foreigner’s Mick Jones and Lou Gramm Perform Together at Awards Dinner
Foreigner's Mick Jones and Lou Gramm reunited to perform together for the first time in eight years, singing two of their hits at the Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony in New York City last night (June 13.)
Backed by the house band, the duo performed the songs 'Juke Box Hero' and 'I Want to Know What Love Is,' and were joined on the latter by Anthony Morgan’s Inspirational Choir of Harlem. Another songwriting legend, Billy Joel, inducted the duo into the Hall of Fame, joking that Foreigner really were musical heroes, "back when there were jukeboxes."
Jones first broke the news of the event to us in a February interview, where he declared that he was "so proud of what Lou and I achieved in those early years and throughout the time that we were together. I think it’s the first time that we’ve been recognized for our work and our writing, which was really the foundation of what we did together, as much as the performing.”
