Foreigner Looking Forward to Thursday’s Reunion
Although their split was among the most bitter in rock, on Thursday night (June 13th), Foreigner co-founders Mick Jones and Lou Gramm will share a stage to perform at their induction into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. The Hall’s 44th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner and Gala will be once again be held at Manhattan’s Marriott Marquis Hotel. The performance will mark the first time the pair has seen one another in three years and the first time they’ve made music together in a decade.
With Mick Jones recently undergoing extensive open heart surgery and Lou Gramm battling back against a non-malignant brain tumor, the two rockers — who once fought like blood brothers — have both mellowed at the thought of their songwriting team being immortalized. Mick Jones says he’s looking forward to every aspect of reconnecting with Lou Gramm on Thursday: “Y’know, the main thing for me is that we both feel that same way, we’re both happy for each other and its a wonderful achievement and it’ll mean. . . it’s one of the most meaningful things that’ll happen in our lifetime for us.”
