Shout out to you from across the globe!
Hey Headknocker :
There's no question Lou has not regained his voice completely. However, it is certainly better then post-op. Even without his unfortunate health issues, at 63 he's not going to sound as he did pre-op. Haven't heard many singers with that range at that age. Although Paul Rodgers sounds incredible at his age, which I believe is the same as Lou's. He was just so good for so long. I think he actually set the bar too high for himself...lol!!
Ironically, you don't see many 5 and 6 octave rock singers today. Just an absolute God given talent!
For me today, I just simply support the man for his efforts. Foreigner has left such a long list of memories for me, it'll last a lifetime! I'm forever grateful for that. Although a band is the sum of all parts, the voice is what draws me in first and foremost. Boy, was I drawn in!!!!
