Foreigner founder Ian McDonald talks possible reunion
Last Thursday night the original members of Foreigner reunited at Jones Beach. For the first time in 37 years Lou Graham, Al Greenwood, and Ian McDonald joined the band on stage performing "Long long Way from Home," "I Wanna Know What Love Is" and "Hot Blooded." So why not do it Saturday night when they played the PNC Bank Arts Center?
Ian McDonald called my show Monday night to explain, and talked about the possibility of another reunion — which seems really possible.
As for the PNC, "We weren't invited," Ian McDonald said.
"This Jones Beach was one off, just to see how it would work and if it would work and to see if everyone would participate and it worked well so there may be things in the future," he said.
McDonald was actually at the PNC Bank Arts Center for the Asia show, which was a tribute to the late John Wetton. The co-founder of Foreigner as well as King Crimson has a new band called Honey West.
As for the Jones Beach Reunion, "it was a test in a sense to see if everyone was into it and hopefully we may do something down the line."
