1977: A Madman Turns 40: 2017- Day 67

    Today marks the 40th anniversary of the band Foreigner's debut album. The self-titled LP featured a number of hits including Cold As Ice, Long, Long Way From Home, and their biggest smash Feels Like The First Time.

     The album went platinum five times in the States, selling over 5 million copies. Interesting enough, I always thought Foreigner was an American band. But they are actually from England! So they are Foreigner- well at least to everyone but those in the UK.

     Folks, I'm not really a ban of the band. I do like the song Cold As Ice. But if anyone is a fan of this group, it's my wife. She really likes that corporate rock jazz. I refer to it as Bart Simpson does in a very early episode of the Simpsons- Wuss Rock!

    Well, before I go and alienate all of my loyal readers who are devoted to the band Foreigner, let me leave you guys with a song or two from the album.

    Until Tomorrow...
