Ask the Band / Info... for a book!
« Last post by ManaBilieJean on August 30, 2014, 10:44:44 am »
hi! I would like to ask a question... is possible to cite Foreigner in a book? I mean... the protagonist of my novel, loves music, and Foreigner are one of her favorite bands, so I wanted to include some of my favorite songs. I was wondering if it was possible.
Thank you, waiting for an answer!

Pray for this band big time after Mick is not around and oh....once again whoever runs the Foreigner Facebook page --- hahah I got the image out there anyway!!! :P

I feel like I'm very Ah. Because I said it was the knowledge that everyone should know it. Because it is good, I'm able to apply it.

Okay, I know most like this post will be ignored and not commented on but whoever runs this message board most likely runs the Facebook Foreigner page --- so this is for those Minions (Babs Tatjana OR however U spell your names!!) I had been trying to get ahold of Mick Jones in private sending him an image of a portrait that I did of him, I even sent it on his private Facebook. This was a couple weeks ago before they went to Lorain County. Ok I haven't heard anything, I wanted to follow up. So being *nice* posted about it on the group's facebook, next thing I know I'm deleted!! REALLY!! You people HATE people who dissagree with you that much huh?? Wow!!!! I'll admit, I'm NOT a fan of the current line up and never was but Mick Jones will allways be the heart of Foreigner and I'll allways be a fan of him and the music of Foriegner!! I AM over the Kelly crap!!!! U all fanatics can gawk over him for all I care!!! okay! The only thing I worry about is the future of the band when Mick is gone....I admire Mick for continuing the band and the music that's why I did the painting portrait and it wou;d be nice to at least know he's seen it. Hell,when I did Lou's portrait a few months ago guess what ?? I heard from his wife!!!!!! She said he saw it and loved it!!!! Hopefully, I'll get the chance to give him to him as a gift like I was hoping to do the same for Mick but it looks like that won't happen while the minions are in control right?? :(

The band was welcomed by an audience that was ready to rock. It was incredible watching young kids jumping and singing 'Double Vision' along with the band--right along with those of us who are no longer kids (well, at least according to that darned birth date on our driver's license.)

Unfortunately, the threatening weather caught up to us several songs into the set. The wind picked up and Kelly announced that due the threat of wind and lightening there would be a pause; however they were told it might not be too long and the band would be back on stage if at all possible.

The crew jumped on securing the stage and tarping the gear. Security moved the crowd well away from the stage in an efficient and respectful manner. They made the right call because before long the clouds opened, the lightening crackled, and it rained steadily for a good half hour. I am guessing the duration because it is hard to judge time hunched under a poncho on a folding chair while rain pours over you and lightening crackles everywhere.

As the rain poured down, a group in the stands began to chant, "Hell no, we won't go!" Then, during one series of bright lightening bolts, another group broke into 'Juke Box Hero'. That gave me a reason to smile as cold rain continued to  wash down my back.

Eventually, the rain stopped, the crowd cheered, and then the wait for a decision. Again guessing, it was about another half hour before music was heard from the PA, and cheering erupted once again.

Soon, the crowd rushed back to the stage, the band appeared, and Kelly spoke: Good news, and bad news.

First, the bad news. Another weather cell was on the way and lightening could still be seen in the area. All things considered--the weather, the already soaked infrastructure, etc., it was not feasible to completely reset the entire stage. It was understandable as there are so many issues, from electronics, to safety, and no doubt more.

The good news: The band wanted to do a couple more songs for us anyway. So, we were able to rock to "unplugged" versions of two more songs, closing with Feels Like the First Time.

This evening there would be no Juke Box Hero, but I was thrilled to be able to see the band again. Hoping they will make another stop in my neck of the woods next year, as it seems those stars in my eyes will not go away!
