OMG! I don't even know where to begin! First, I agree with all the responses so far....Tatjana, you are absolutely right that someone doesn't have to come on here and slam anybody. It does show a lack of class. Secondly, since I first saw the band with Kelly back in '07, I have not seen any posts on here with such hate. Obviously, you have every right to prefer one singer over another. We all, at some point, had to make a choice to let go of our dreams that Lou Gramm might again sing with Foreigner, and make room for somebody who has taken this band to a whole new level and reached thousands of new (and younger) fans in the process. And to actually say Kelly can't sing?!! Sir, you have no ears! He is spot on at every performance. Even a few years ago when he had throat problems, the poor guy gave it his all to make the show the best. He certainly CAN sing! And I have always loved that I get to hear the Foreigner songs live the way Lou sang them on the recordings. Kelly has worked hard to keep the essence of the melody the same while still taking some freedoms with his ad libs.
This is so weird to me....we've had diehards on here before always talking Lou over Kelly, but it's truly the first time I've ever heard anybody say "well, if not Lou, then somebody else besides Kelly". Blows my mind. Kelly brings energy and fun to the shows, and sings the songs with passion and incredible talent. I, for one, have always been a HUGE Lou Gramm fan and will always appreciate the talent he had, but #1) he chose to leave the band, and #2) his voice is not the same as it once was. When I first saw the band back in '07, everyone on here said "just give them a chance and see what you think", so I went with an open mind determined to at least give it a shot. Even then, I could appreciate his talent and incredible vocal range. As the years have gone by, Kelly has more and more just morphed into the voice and stage presence of Foreigner.
Whoever you are, if you don't want to see the band again, then don't. But there are huge crowds at every show loving Kelly and the show he fronts.
And seriously, after all this time, what rock did you actually just crawl out from under?
