Birthday wishes to THE voice of Foreigner, Lou Gramm, born Louis Andrew Grammatico on this date in 1950. Lou was in the Rochester, NY band Black Sheep. When Mick Jones performed there with Spooky Tooth, Grammatico gave Jones a Black Sheep album. He was impressed enough to invite Lou to audition for the lead vocal spot when Jones' was in the group that would become Foreigner. Lou got the gig, dropped a few letters from his last name and went on to become one of Rock's most highly acclaimed front men.
