Congratulations to the legendary Lou Gramm as today, March 8, 2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Foreigner’s self-titled debut album… what an amazing album! In my humble opinion, it’s 38 minutes and 46 seconds of rock perfection.
Spawning the Top 20 singles, “Feels Like the First Time,” “Cold as Ice” and “Long, Long Way From Home,” it also contained such fan favorites as “Starrider,” “Headknocker” and “At War with the World.”
While a group by the name of Foreigner still exists, it should never be forgotten that Lou Gramm is, and always will be, the distinct and irreplaceable voice you hear on every single one of the hits from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Sixteen top 30 hits. 80 million albums sold worldwide. There’s only one Lou.
