Lou Gramm has stepped further back from talk of a reunion tour with his former band Foreigner by saying he's planning to retire in the very near future.
He and ex-colleague Mick Jones made contact again after nearly a decade of not talking after it was announced they'd be inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame next month.
Now Gramm says: "You know, I don't take any of that talk seriously. I've heard there was a mention, but honestly, I can't see that happening. I would have to see how it goes down, what it entails, how long it would be. There's a number of things that would make a difference to me, and I'm sure Mick feels the same way. I mean, after all those years you just can't jump into the deep water, you know."
In the same interview Gramm – who underwent surgery for a brain tumor in 1997 – says he frequently thinks about retiring. Asked if he's set a date he replies: "Maybe sooner than you think."
There used to be a musical called "Brigadoon" I remember seeing on TV as a little kid, about a town that only comes to the surface every hundred years. Well, there's a new ghost town in Argentina that has been buried under water for 25 years and it's recently surfaced. That's fascinating to me and here's a link to pictures and the story:
Beatles-themed stage musical ‘Let It Be,’ which currently is running on London’s West End, is getting ready to cross the pond for a Broadway engagement.
According to Playbill.com, the production, which follows the Beatles from the Cavern Club to the apex of their stardom, will begin previews on July 16th at New York City’s St. James Theater. The official opening will take place on July 24th.
'Let It Be’ will feature a group of musicians portraying John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, backed by state-of-the-art projection images and 3D sound. Among the many classic tunes showcased in the play will be ‘Twist and Shout,’ ‘She Loves You,’ ‘Yesterday,’ ‘Hey Jude,’ ‘Come Together’ and ‘Let It Be.
‘Let It Be’ is scheduled to remain at the St. James Theater through December 29th. Tickets will be available for purchase by the general public starting on May 23rd if you happen to going to New York. We'll let you know when it starts touring the States.
