Foreigner's Gramm and Jones In The Studio For Double Vision Anniversary (A Top Story)

On Tuesday Foreigner's Gramm and Jones In The Studio For Double Vision Anniversary was a top story. Here is the recap: In The Studio are celebrating the 35th anniversary of Foreigner's "Double Vision" this week and the show's host Redbeard presents interviews with singer Lou Gramm and guitarist Mick Jones about the landmark album.

For those wondering where the title came from, Lou Gramm explains in his new autobiography Juke Box Hero. "In the case of 'Double Vision', my inspiration came from a hockey game", says Gramm.

"The New York Rangers were playing the Philadelphia Flyers in the Stanley Cup playoffs, and during a flurry in front of the net, one of the Flyers elbowed Rangers goalie John Davidson in the head.

"He was knocked woozy and had to be helped to the locker room. One of the announcers came on with an update…that the goalie had been experiencing some double vision. Voila!"

The album featured the band's very first million selling single, "Hot Blooded," and during the interview Jones recalls how the band were called back repeatedly for encores during the California Jam II festival in March 1978.
