I saw Foreigner when I was in high school, it was just as they were about to "jump the shark", on the Agent Provocateur tour. You know, "I Want To Know What Love Is", with the choir and all that. Loved it. Loved them.
And I wanted it to be true: that this band that sang rocking awesome songs about Juke Box Heroes and Head Games had become Christians (I mean, I want to know what love is? I want you to show me? With a gospel choir?). Then, later on, Lou Gramm appears on a Petra praise and worship CD, singing about how "We Need Jesus", screeching with John Elephante and John Schlitt. (don't ask me why I know this)...
And so now it's almost the end of this decade, and after a brain tumor, and the surgery to remove it that took most of his high range away, he has a new CD - Christian music, spiritual lyrics, and it's with his two brothers backing him up in this new "Lou Gramm Band." He's even appeared on the 700 club with his christian testimony.
I've listened to the CD, and I recommend it. Not because it's earth shattering new music or anything, but because, I mean come on. Every hard rocking Christian secretly wishes that the music he or she likes would somehow be redeemed. And here is a guy who rocked the late 70s and 80s, and he's singing about Jesus. What's not to like! (and it's a lot better than most of the retread new CDs from 80s arena rock bands... Journey, Night Ranger, I'm talking to you!)
