How can you call all the bashing "fans expressing their opinions?
" The bashers/haters are not fans at all!!! We all love and appreciate the contribution Lou Gramm has made to Foreigner. He chose to leave Foreigner -- twice -- to do his solo career. I have seen him twice and he seems happy with his current band! True fans embrace his choice and support him wholeheartedly.
Mick decided to reform Foreigner a couple years later. Foreigner has been his band from the beginning -- his choice how to manage it! His choice for member selection! True fans also embrace his decisions.
Anyone who is not on board with Mick's decisions needs to move on!!! Lou is not coming back to Foreigner and neither are most of the other departed members! Bands are not static entities -- most are in a state of flux as members come and go.
This Foreigner line-up is so rockin' excellent!! The live shows are fabulous and the recordings are awesome! Kelly is a wonderful front man with an excellent team of members!!
I saw Mick at a couple of shows last year and he is doing great!!!! Played as magnificently as always!! I loved the crowd in Phoenix -- rumors started "Mick Jones is in the house!" By the time Mick took the stage -- the crowd noise was deafening!!! I was lucky enough to run into Mick in the hallway and he said he felt really good and was looking forward to playing more shows. He is very gracious to fans -- always a kind word and a big smile!
This site is for fan discussions -- not band bashing or fan bashing -- really!! If your goal is to be rude and obnoxious -- please leave this forum!!!!! A good rule is to not say anything that you would not want said about you!!!
This lineup is Foreigner: Mick, Kelly, Tom, Jeff, Bruce and Chris!!! We celebrate you guys and all the staff and thank all of you for all you do!!!!
