Well, I've always been a huge Foreinger fan, and since they're all I can think about since I'm finally seeing them tomorrow, I decided to make a Foreinger thread.

So, what's everyone's favorite Foreinger album, my vote goes for Double Vision.

I saw them a few weeks ago, the "new" singer is really good and Jason Bohnam on drums. Woot woot.
Takamine EG531SSC - "Kim"
Fender Mexican Stratocaster - "Jessica"
-Texas Special Pickups

I don't own any of their albums (except their Greatest Hits, and I ****ing hate Greatest Hits), and therefore... all I've heard is their radio songs.

From what I have heard, I think that they're a pretty decent band.

I've never thought of them as anything extremely special, and though their lyrics can be pretty cheesy at times, I think that they're songs are enjoyable, and for those reasons they remind me a lot of post-Progressive Rock Journey.

^I used to think the exact thing about them and Journey, but Journey is more soft balladry, arean rock plus "Wheel In The Sky," while Foreinger is a harder edge styled band.

However, in the 70s-80s progressive rock world, it was pretty much just Journey, Foreigner, Styx, and REO Speedwagon.

True, Journey isn't as hard-edged as Foreigner, but they still remind me of one another.

Then again, I haven't heard enough of each band's music. If I heard a song I'd never heard before by Foreigner, there's a possibility I might mistake the band for Journey, and vice versa.

Foreigner kicked huge ass last night, thety played all their big songs, and "Jukebox Hero" opened with a synthesizer solo, then a drum solo(bits of "Moby Dick" in it), then the solo in the song turned into "Whole Lotta Love," it's great to Jason & Foreigner paying tribute to Bonzo.

Yes! I'm not the only one who always confuses the two.

In relation to this thread, I think they're a pretty decent band, and it's awesome that they have Jason Bonham on drums. The Zeppelin runs in his veins.

^^Honestly, I think that Boston is more complicated musically, and they almost have a progressive rock feel in some of their songs.

I've never thought of the two sounding similar.

Really, I can't really make the connection. But then again, I'm not a huge Boston fan, and when I think of them I think of "More Than A Feeling" or "Foreplay"

I liked foreigner in the 80's. And i would see them now, but they have a new singer and i hate when bands get new singers, it just bothers me. For example, Queen/Paul Rogers, I hate that because no one could ever replace Freddie Mercury.
No one can replace Lou Gramm in Foreigner.

^I don't know, the new guy has a lot of energy and sounds pretty damn close to Lou Gramm.

By the way, Jason Bonham is the f***in' funniest musician I've ever seen

As amazing as Paul Rodgers is as a vocalist, and as amazing as Freddie Mercury was as a vocalist, I don't know if Paul was the right choice to replace Freddie.

I'll admit I've never heard Paul sing Queen before, but look at the well-known bands he's been in - Bad Company, Free... The Firm.

Those are much more blues-based bands, and Queen isn't so blues-based.

I don't know anything about who replaced Lou Gramm, though...
#15
I saw Lou Gramm yesterday. The dude needed oxygen and his vocals sucked nuts. Dennis Deyoung from styx came on afterwards and put on one of the best shows ive ever seen, the man can still sing and hes j/ awesome 2 watch.

A year or so ago when they came to town the radio station was giving out tickets. Well people who won those tickets were entered into a drawing to get drum lessons from Jason Bonham. I was really excited until I found you had to be 18 or older. Life can be a bitch sometimes I swear! Qell I hope you have a nice day and ROCK ON!!!
#17
Foreigner is pretty amazing, I enjoy their "Records" album since the majority of their songs on it are good. the vocals are awesome

they're really pop-rock, hair-rock, glam-rock, whatever you want to call them, but i spose they kind of fit the classic rock definition.
