So far, 2017 has started off much better than 2016. For me, the year began with a tweet from Lou Gramm, former lead singer of Foreigner. Therefore, we could not resist cover one of the best rock bands of the ’70s and ’80s.

In addition, our ’80s crossover event – ’80s Innovations – is discussed. We also have a new Play This, Not That, Remember That Song, and ’80s Trivia.

Now, let’s take a look back at Lou Gramm and Foreigner.

If the word gets out, yeah, that’s alright
