As of this week, we are celebrating 35 years of Foreigner! The band that brought us hits like "Hot Blooded", "Cold As Ice" and "Feels Like The First Time" released their debut album on March 8th, 1977!
This week on the boom Podcast we found a conversation between original Foreigner co-founder (and only founding member still in the band) Mick Jones as he sits down in 1991 with Johnny Edwards. Edwards replaced Lou Gramm as Lead Vocalist from 1990 to 1992 until Gramm came back in 1993. Although Johnny's time in the band was short lived, Mick and Johnny got along well and put out one album "Unusual Heat". Although the album was a commercial failure, fans and critics applauded Edwards for his live and vocal performances.
Take a listen to the interview and think what might have been if "Unusual Heat" caught on.
Steven Van Zandt stopped by our studios at #2 St. Clair Ave West shortly after the 2012 GRAMMY Awards to chat with Jim Richards about his busy career. Along with being the guitarist for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, and hosting his own radio shows, Steven also manages to find time to star in a groundbreaking Netflix Show called "Lilyhammer". In this Podcast Steven shares his thoughts and experiences on those topics and much more.
In the third episode of the boom Podcast, Maie Pauts takes over as she interviews current bassist of the classic hit band Foreigner: Jeff Pilson
Jeff joined Foreigner 7 years ago in 2004, but he is well known as a part of the heavy metal band Dokken and Dio. Take a listen to the interview as Maie and Jeff discuss whether Foreigner is working on new material. As well a funny story about a heated argument between the guitarist about missheard lyrics!
