With ten multi-platinum albums and sixteen Top 30 hits, Foreigner continues to propel sold-out tours and album sales, now exceeding 75 million. Responsible for some of rock and roll’s most enduring anthems, including “Juke Box Hero”, “Feels Like The First Time”, “Urgent”, Head Games”, “Say You Will”, “Dirty White Boy”, “Long, Long Way From Home”, and the worldwide #1 hit, ”I Want To Know What Love Is”, Foreigner continues to rock the charts after more than thirty years.
At Foreigner’s core is founder and lead guitarist Mick Jones, whose stylistic songwriting, indelible guitar hooks and multi-layered talents continue to escalate Foreigner’s influence, along with lead vocalist, Kelly Hansen, bass guitarist, Jeff Pilson and multi-instrumentalist, Tom Gimbel.
Founded in 1976, Foreigner’s debut album produced the hits “Feels Like The First Time”, “Cold As Ice” and “Long, Long Way From Home”. The album, Double Vision followed, as did a string of hits like “Urgent”, “Juke Box Hero” and “Waiting For A Girl Like You”. Those songs helped give Foreigner’s next album, 4, its impressive run at #1 on the Billboard chart. Foreigner’s fifth album, Agent Provocateur, gave the world the incredible #1 global hit,” I Want To Know What Love Is”. This musical milestone followed the record-breaking song “Waiting For A Girl Like You”.
In 2012, Foreigner had three songs featured on the “Rock Of Ages” soundtrack. Hollywood quickly took note, and several more tracks were featured in hit films like, “Magic Mike” and “Pitch Perfect”, sending Foreigner downloads up 400%, with their catalog outselling The Eagles, Def Leppard, Tom Petty and The Who.
In February 2013, Jones was inducted to the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. A multi-talented and multi dimensional “musician’s musician”, he has also written songs such as “Bad Love” with Eric Clapton and “Dreamer” with Ozzy Osbourne, and produced records for others including Billy Joel’s Storm Front and Van Halen’s 5150. A Grammy and Golden Globe-nominated songwriter, Jones is the winner of the prestigious British Ivor Novello Songwriter Award for “The Flame Still Burns”, the soundtrack music for the film, “Still Crazy”.
