You made my day Fever.

Edwards doesn't have the stature of a Lou Gramm but he was a pretty damn good vocalist in his own right. I loved Unusual Heat, even though it is about as popular around these forums as bed bugs in a hotel room.

I have lost track of Foreigner over the years, but I did buy every album up to "Agent Provocateur" on vinyl.

My favorites in order:

Double Vision
Foreigner
IV
Head Games
Agent Provocateur.

I did know that Mick Jones and Lou Gramm have a legendary relationship, more renowned for their disputes than anything else.

I think it's a good album too and I bought the cd as soon as it was released.

Do you remember about 8-9 years ago when there was talk of Gramm reforming Shadow King? This was around the time he left Foreigner again for the last time. They were gonna do an album or at least some songs. Turns out Campbell pulled out, unfortunately.

I would love to see Shadow King reform.I heard Campbell was complaining about the songs he has to play for Def Leppard.He said it wasn't very challenging and Phil Collen gets to play all the widdly guitar parts.So he could help reform Shadow King and play some challenging guitar parts:grinthumb

That is true. I read Campbell's complaints in print a few years ago. He said his previous bands (before Leppard) had material that was more challenging and more fun to play.

But to him, the positive thing about being in Leppard was being able to have a little say in matters concerning the band and being more of an equal.

He did say the drawback of his previous bands was working with vocalists who ran everything, leaving him as nothing but a hired gun (in his opinion). He specifically talked about Dio being very controlling, though he really missed playing the material. Go figure!
