Lou Gramm Not Rejoining Foreigner
Lou Gramm wants to make it clear that he is not re-joining Foreigner.
The former frontman published Juke Box Hero, his autobiography, on Wednesday, and in interviews he’s said that he has “an open mind” to re-joining Mick Jones in Foreigner should the opportunity arise. He told Classic Rock Revisited, “His management and my management are tossing around the idea of a farewell tour. I would really like to do that. It would be really great to do that instead of leaving it with such a bitter and unfinished ending.”
This, of course, has been twisted to say that they will be touring, which has prompted Gramm’s office to issue the following statement: “Though both Lou Gramm and Mick Jones will be on hand for the Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony on June 13th in New York, there are no plans for the two to head out on a reunion tour. Despite recent media reports that a reunion is being planned, at present time, there are no dialogs about any dates, though both continue to tour.”
Gramm left Foreigner for the final time in 1997 following brain surgery.
