Lou Gramm Wants To Bash Out A Song Or Two With Foreigner Before Retirement

Original Foreigner lead singer Lou Gramm has an upcoming reunion with the band and a big decision to make.

Gramm told his Twitter followers:

After the past 24 hours of some crossed wires and miscommunication, I can confirm that I and the rest of the original band have been invited to join Foreigner for a song or two at any show during this 4Oth anniversary year. Dennis Elliot and Rick Wills will be in St Augustin, FL on 2/24. Ian McDonald, Al Greenwood and I will perform at a date yet to be determined . Thank you for your Patience & understanding .

Gramm was chosen as the lead singer of what would become Foreigner by group originator Mick Jones in 1976 and was with the band until 2003, singing on all of their hits including Feels Like the First Time, Double Vision, Urgent, Waiting For a Girl Like You and I Want to Know What Love Is. Jones and Gramm reunited on June 13, 2013 when they were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, performing Juke Box Hero and I Want to Know What Love Is.

Lou was also part of another misunderstanding this week as he told the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle that he was retiring after touring this summer. “I’m tired of the business. It’s time to hang up the mic. The business has changed. The biggest part for me was knowing you were promoting material that’s new and fresh. That hasn’t been the case for me in 25 years.”

After they story broke, Gramm once again took to Twitter to say that nothing was definite. “In Hindsight I meant 2 Say that I am considering that . No definite plans . I was caught a bit off guard today .My apologies.”
