Original Foreigner members, including frontman Lou Gramm and guitarist Mick Jones, reunited earlier this month at a special meeting at Atlantic Records marking the RIAA Platinum certification of their 2008 2-disc hits collection "No End In Sight: The Very Best Of Foreigner."

Apart from Gramm and Jones, Al Greenwood (keyboards), and Ian McDonald (rhythm guitar, keyboards, saxophone, flute, backing vocals) were also on hand for the platinum plaque presentation by Atlantic Records Chairman & CEO Craig Kallman on December 5th.

Jones released these comments, "No End In Sight was named as a tribute to the longevity of Foreigner's music. Lou Gramm, Al Greenwood, Ian McDonald, Ed Gagliardi, Dennis Elliott, Rick Wills and I originally brought these songs to life. Years later, the current members of Foreigner added their talent to No End In Sight, and continue to bring our music to a whole new legion of fans."

Kallman added, "In the seven-decade history of Atlantic Records, there is a select group of artists who stand out as true musical icons, and Foreigner certainly belongs in that elite family.

"Their longevity is a real testament to the power of timeless songwriting, fantastic musicianship, and Mick Jones's brilliant vision for the band from day one. The fact that they've scored yet another platinum award 40 years since the release of their first album proves that their music remains relevant and compelling today, spanning generations of fans. We're immensely proud to have Foreigner's incredible body of work as part of Atlantic's heritage."
