General Discussion / Scene of a perfect crime
« Last post by hawke2103 on May 31, 2014, 10:34:46 am »
I've been a fan of Foreigner ever since Spookytooth! I'm also a big fan of Concrete Blonde. Has anyone else wondered about the nearness of Girl On The Moon (one of my late wife's favourites) and Scene Of A Perfect Crime??????? :-\ :-\ :-\

Great, Nick !!! Wow - Blue Morning Blue Day, one of my favourites as well  :)

So our classic rock station here in Philly, 102.9 WMGK, has "countdowns" for various holidays, where fans vote their top 100/200/500 songs (whatever it may be), and they play them in order- as I am sure many radio stations around the country/world do.

Being The Soundtrack of Summer Tour is hitting it's stride, I thought it would be fun to post where us Philly folks rank the bands hits on this tour!

Memorial Day specifically, WMGK does the "Memorial Day Philly 500" ("as voted on by us fans!" [said in hack radio voice, lol]) and for nothing more than to see Philly's taste in rock/classic rock, here is where Philly is voting our boys, Styx, and The Eagles (I used The Eagles, as Don Felder was a part of many of these songs), in relation to the other 500 songs by equally as talented musicians.

Just a fun little list, for no specific purpose!

FOREIGNER                                           STYX                                                                    THE EAGLES

320 Juke Box Hero                                  191 Too Much Time On My Hands                     447 Heartache Tonight
272 Hot Blooded                                      52 Renegade                                                        386 The Long Run

                                                                                                                                                   267 One Of Those Nights

I think all of us as kids, must've heard or been told the story of "the boy who cried minion".  But apparently there's one person who hasn't heard it.

General Discussion / Re: VIP Guitar Question

It was a fantastic night and it all went smoothly just as Jeff mentioned in a earlier post.
Brandon the merchandise guy ran an ultra smooth operation and even though Foreigner was on second he
held all the goods until after Styx ended. I love my autographed guitar and the show made me a fan.

Here is a HD video I shot from the front row.

Thanks for the great review Jeff. As usual, you always make us feel like we were there with you.
I'm so sorry to hear about your health issues but so glad you're well now and up and rocking again. Take care of yourself and I wish you the best!!

Thanks again for sharing your wonderful experience. I can't wait to see them in July :)

Eunice ;D

Okay, I know this thread will probably be ignored and I'm talking to myself as usual but I understand that Foreigner is coming to the Lorain County Fairgrounds sometime in August my neck of the woods in Ohio and this may shock you but I'd REALLY would love to go esp if Mick is able to tour and play!! Say what you will about me "crazy bi-polar troller" fan but Foreigner's music still means alot to me and I'm tired of being tired of nitpicking over Foreigner (although once in a while I like to goof on Kelly) BUT seriously I REEEEEALLLY am trying to kiss and make up, shoot if some of you have noticed Dennis Elliot's wife started a facebook friends of Foreigner new and old bands and guess what I joined if some of you have noticed!! (Babs!) Lastly, I am an inspiring painter, and I AM interested in painting a portrait of Mick!! I did one of Lou (still hoping to personally give it him one day) but I'm working on one possibly of Mick and I would love to hand it to him when Foreigner comes to Ohio and I'd be willing to see them again front and center, and I'll stay for the encores this time! Okay?
Allight, take this post for it is but I'm being very very very serious!!! Thank you....

General Discussion / Re: An acoustic evening with Foreigner (Vinyl)
« Last post by SU_5757 on May 22, 2014, 09:28:13 pm »
Matching performances according to the jacket on my CD which arrived today.  I may be dating myself by using the term  "jacket" but  it does seem appropriate for a cardboard case.  I had been expecting it to be from the hr1 concert a few years ago, but it is the 2013 perfomance. It 's interesting to hear the resurgence of vinyl LPs.  There are many who claim to hear the nuances which are lost on my unsophisticated ear.

Actually looking forward to my morning commute to give it a first listen.  No turntable in the car!  Ah but there is one still lurking in the basement. LOL

Ask the Band / Good morning guys! A question about using a lyric for a book.
« Last post by Bill12345 on May 22, 2014, 03:33:27 pm »
Dear Foreigner,

I'm going to be publishing a book. It's all small time but the book will be on sale for money. I would like to print these lyrics from your song "I Want to know what love is" before one of the chapters:

"In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far, to change this lonely life
I want to know what love is, I want you to show me"

I want to be respectful to you and was wondering the cost for reprinting your lyrics.  Is this irritating/disrespectful from an artist's stand point ? You would receive credit in book.

The book is fictional and not in bad taste at all. It's not objectionable, racist, ugly.

Thank you
