But It’s Not Up To Him
Despite health issues that forced him to cancel some dates in October, Foreigner’s original singer Lou Gramm admitted that he wants to do reunion shows and release unfinished song ideas co-written with former bandmate Mick Jones. In a recent episode of Rock Talk with Mitch Lafon, Gramm revealed that he’s ready to be back on stage.
But inasmuch as he’d like to perform with other Foreigner members, he said that “That’s entirely up to Foreigner’s management and, as of this point, I haven’t heard anything. It hinges a lot on Mick’s health – which is good, so I’ve heard. I’d like to do some more shows with Foreigner. I have a lot of fun. With the new band as well, I think it’s a real interesting combination. Whatever they want to do is okay with me.”
While he doesn’t have any news about the possibility of a reunion, he did share about unfinished material prior to his departure from the group in 2003. He continued, “Mick and I both have those demos; those are really good songs and I would love to do something with them. Again, it depends on Foreigner’s manager and if Mick feels that they’re good enough to continue working on. Mick didn’t have those songs, somehow. They got lost when he moved. So, I provided him with a CD and I know he’s listened to them, I know he likes them. But that was way over a year ago, and I haven’t heard anything about doing anything with them.”
