    my friend Donna and I saw the band Foreigner Saturday night at the horseshoe casino in Indiana. It was a great concert in a fairly small venue. As they played I realized they had a lot of hits. It was one after another of big hits from beginning to end. We had a great time and the only downside was no gretsch gear was used at all.
    I didn’t take too many pictures because I was enjoying myself and didn’t bother with my phone but here are two from the night.

    Was the original singer, Lou Gramm, with the band?
    I noticed that they gigged with someone else a few years ago and missed him. His voice has always been a big part of the attraction of this band.

    I saw them a few years ago. Mick Jones was the only original member. That's still true although Lou Gramm and other members from the classic era have appeared in some shows.
