Lou Gramm – The Original Voice Of Foreigner

Louis Andrew Grammatico, widely known as Lou Gramm, is the original lead singer of Foreigner. Lou was born in Rochester, New York, and began his musical career in high school playing in local bands. Initially starting out as the drummer with the band BlackSheep, he joined Foreigner in 1976, and the band released their debut album in March of 1977. Their self-titled debut sold more than four million copies in the United States alone. Foreigner became the first group since the Beatles to have their first eight continuous singles reach the Billboard Top 20, with hits such as“Cold as Ice” and “Long, Long Way from Home” taking the world of rock music by storm.

Gramm has also enjoyed a successful solo career in-between hiatuses with Foreigner, with his 1987 debut“Ready or Not” further proving his versatility in the music industry. Lou Gramm was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in June of 2013, and continues to tour as Lou Gramm the Voice of Foreigner.
