Foreigner will never be the same without Lou's voice. But face the facts, Lou lost his voice after the surgery.
I finally pulled myself into a concert the Arora concert, and I must say, the band is better now in concert than ever before. They are having fun! Foreigner has always been a group of excellent musicians, and the attitude that goes along with it.
Mick has retooled the band into one that can move forward! "Too Late" is an excellent song, and if they can just get an album out, I believe Foreigner can reach a new level of excellence.
It will never be the same without Lou, but Foreigner can and IS building something NEW!
