‘I almost fell over.’ Lou Gramm Reacts to Foreigner’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nomination

Written by on February 17, 2024

Lou Gramm, the original lead singer of the rock band Foreigner, is experiencing a notable year with a series of significant events. Born Louis Grammatico in Gates, N.Y., at 73, Gramm is preparing for a concert in Rochester on March 9, described as a “career retrospective,” and is finalizing an album set for release later in the year with his band, the All Stars. Adding to these milestones, Gramm received news of Foreigner’s nomination for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, a recognition that stunned him. Gramm attributes Foreigner’s success and Hall of Fame nomination to the band’s blend of arena rock and pop-oriented songs, such as “Juke Box Hero” and “Hot Blooded.” This year’s nominees include Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Kool and the Gang, Ozzy Osbourne, Sinead O’Connor, and Peter Frampton. The final decision on the Hall of Fame induction will be announced in late 2024, with Foreigner standing among a diverse group of nominees across various music genres.
