Lou Gramm May Reunite With Foreigner For Farewell Tour
Gramm spoke with Classic Rock Revisited about his new autobiography, "Juke Box Hero," and revealed the reunion news and also explained why classic rock artists like him are reluctant to record new music.
When Gramm was asked "Do you ever see a day where you and Mick Jones could be back in Foreigner together?" he replied, "His management and my management are tossing around the idea of a farewell tour. I would really like to do that. It would be really great to do that instead of leaving it with such a bitter and unfinished ending."
He was later asked if he had plans to make a new album and he responded, "My band goes out and we play all of the hits from Foreigner and from my own albums. However, I don't think there is any point in doing anything new because radio won't play anything new from someone like me. I don't know if it is the corporations or what. If I have something new, they will still only play the old hits. The only bands getting new songs played on the radio are the new, popular artists.
"Classic Rock radio won't even play new songs from Classic Rock artists. The Eagles put out a new album a few years back and I never heard any of it on the radio. The Stones put an album out and they would not even play it. " Read the full interview here.
