Biography:
Foreigner is an English-American rock band, originally formed in NYC in 1976 by veteran English musician Mick Jones, and ex-King Crimson Ian McDonald along with American vocalist Lou Gramm. In 1977, they released their self-titled debut album, and became an immediate hit with hit singles "Feels Like the First Time" and "Cold as Ice," as the album would go platinum five times over. 1978's Double Vision, with hit singles "Hot Blooded" and its title track, stayed in the Top Ten for six months. Their 3rd release, Head Games, followed in 1979. The 1981 release, 4, was another massive seller, with hit singles "Urgent, "Jukebox Hero," & "Waiting for a Girl Like You." Their biggest hit single, "I Want to Know What Love Is", released in 1984, topped both the U.K. and U.S. charts. Foreigner has sold more than 80 million records. Jones reformed the band after a 2002 hiatus & selected lead singer Kelly Hansen to help write an inspired new chapter of FOREIGNER. One of rock’s greatest showmen, Hansen’s 35-year career spans almost every area of music, from the role of lead vocalist to producing and engineering. Hansen has led FOREIGNER into the digital age while inspiring a whole new generation of fans. FOREIGNER’s current lineup includes multi-instrumentalist Tom Gimbel, bassist Jeff Pilson, Michael Bluestein on keys, guitarist Bruce Watson & Chris Frazier on drums. A new level of energy led the group to a re-emergence of astounding music that speaks to FOREIGNER‘s enduring popularity.
