ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Foreigner delivered its next studio album, “Inside Information,” on December 08, 1987.  Once again, the band featured the same lineup- Lou Gramm (vocals), Mick Jones (guitars), Dennis Elliott (drums/percussion), and Rick Wills (bassist)- but after this, it would splinter due to internal issues.  Still, this album became platinum rather fast and once again, the band managed to get some singles onto the radio stations that did very well such as “Say You Will,” “I Don’t Want to Live without You,” and “Can’t Wait.”  This would also find the band using the same formula that had delivered them so much success early on,  that being balancing the heavy-duty guitar chops Mick Jones can crank out in his sleep with lush arrangements that draw the softer rockers in.  We love this album and know that you will, too, so please, seek it out wherever you shop for the finest in rock music- you will be so glad you did…

Author: Chef Murphy MacDougal, ACF-CWC, CCM

I began my career as a young chef in the kitchen back in 1975, earlier than that. I apprenticed underneath my father and spent six years working for him in his British-Irish restaurant in Fresno, California. I later moved to Frazier Park, California, and spent quite a few years working in the area and that is where I met Stinkbug. Anyhow, I am now working at a country club over on the coast near San Luis Obispo. Please note: this is my pen name and any photos of me are simply outdated photos adopted for maintaining my privacy. Above, you see the caricature created for me by Bakersfield street artist, the amazing Simone. We have gone this route because of increasing threats against the blog and its members.
