It's no coincidence Foreigner is touring in support of its three-disc "Feels Like The First Time" collection. The work's title is a worthy description of where the band is at in 2012.
When the single, "Feels Like The First Time," was released in 1977, Foreigner was comprised of Mick Jones on guitar, Lou Gramm behind the mic, Ian McDonald on sax, drummer Dennis Elliot, Ed Gagliardi on bass and keyboardist Al Greenwood. The sextet went on to record hits songs such as "Cold As Ice," "Hot Blooded" and "Double Vision."
But then the band started to change.
McDonald and Greenwood left, while Rick Wills replaced Gagliardi. The new, sleeker version of Foreigner released even more hit singles in the 1980s, including "Urgent," "Juke Box Hero," "Waiting for a Girl Like You" and "I Want to Know What Love Is."
