Band history

The band is led by British journeyman rocker Mick Jones (former member of Nero and the Gladiators, Spooky Tooth, and The Leslie West Band) who in early 1976 met with ex-King Crimson member Ian McDonald and formed Foreigner with Lou Gramm, Dennis Elliott, Al Greenwood, and Ed Gagliardi as a sextet. Jones came up with the name from the fact that he, McDonald, and Elliott were British, while Gramm, Greenwood, and Gagliardi were Americans. [2] Spooky Tooth was an English progressive rock band from the late 1960s. ... This article is about the musical group. ... Lou Gramm (born Louis Grammatico on May 2, 1950 in Rochester, New York) is an American rock music vocalist and songwriter best known for his role as the lead vocalist for the rock band Foreigner. ...

The band's debut album Foreigner sold more than four million copies in the United States and stayed in the Top 20 for a year with such hits as "Feels Like the First Time", "Cold as Ice", and "Long Long Way From Home". Their second album, Double Vision, topped their previous selling five million records and spawning "Hot Blooded", and title track "Double Vision". Their third album, Head Games, which was referred to by Gramm as their "grainiest" album, was also successful due to the thunderous "Dirty White Boy" and another title track hit "Head Games". For the album by Cat Stevens, see Foreigner (Cat Stevens album). ... Double Vision is the second album by American rock band Foreigner, released in 1978. ...

1980 brought personnel changes. Al Greenwood and Ed Gagliardi departed the band to form S.P.Y.S with John Blanco, Billy Milne, and John DiGaudio. Rick Wills was brought on board to fill the vacancy on bass left by Ed Gagliardi. Foreigner's next album, aptly named 4, was their biggest hit containing "Jukebox Hero", "Waiting for a Girl Like You", and "Urgent". Their next album, Agent Provocateur, was released successfully in late 1984, and gave them their first and only #1 hit in 1985 (in U.S., UK, Australia, Norway, Sweden, etc.), "I Want to Know What Love Is", a gospel-inspired ballad backed by the New Jersey Mass Choir. In the late 1980s, Jones and Gramm each put out solo efforts and the band went on hiatus. But in 1987 Foreigner regrouped and released Inside Information; spawning hits such as "Say You Will" and "I Don't Want To Live Without You".

By 1992, however, Lou Gramm rejoined Foreigner (bringing along with his Shadow King bandmate Bruce Turgon) and produced the band's second greatest hits album, The Very Best of...and Beyond, which included three new songs. Three years later Foreigner released what was supposed to be the band's comeback album, Mr. Moonlight. This album fared even worse than Unusual Heat, due to the rising popularity of alternative and grunge rock, although the ballad "Until the End of Time" was a minor hit, hitting #42 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The character Carl is also known to be a big fan of Foreigner, having seen them at the Meadowlands in '83.
