FOREIGNER CO-FOUNDERS TO REUNITE AT SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME

Foreigner's Mick Jones and Lou Gramm will reunite in June for their induction into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, according to Ultimate Classic Rock. Both Jones and Gramm, who parted ways in 2003 when Gramm quit the band, have suffered from health problems over recent years, with Gramm surviving a brain tumor and Jones recently undergoing open heart surgery. Gramm, who still performs and is a born again Christian, was replaced by current lead singer Kelly Hansen in 2005.
Mick Jones said that he and Gramm have decided to perform "Juke Box Hero" and "I Want To Know What Love Is" at Gramm's suggestion, adding that he's ""very much looking forward" to the reunion.
ones went on to say: "I'm so proud of what Lou and I achieved in those early years and throughout the time that we were together. I think it's the first time that we've been recognized for our work and our writing, which was really the foundation of what we did together, as much as the performing. . . I think this band has always been a song-driven band and so that has its place for me and it's very important and it's going to be great to share that with Lou. It will help us to move along in our relationship, which has been fairly quiet in the last seven or eight years."
