It s never good to end a book wondering why you picked it up So much rich possibilities but it went nowhere. Wow I admire Lou Gramm so much He s a rock icon in my book, but after reading this memoir, I know he is than just a rock legend he s also a good man I can t say that about a few other legends in rock Gramm is a man that can love his family, make amends, be remorseful, and openly share his faith I was intrigued by his brain surgery ordeal and its afterma Lou is very low key in this memoir Doesn t mention names of his ex wives nor tells about his issues Doesn t talk about heavy drug use and alcohol or sex romps although as a famous rock star one would assume all lead singers dealt with their share of groupies I don t know what else to say I really wanted to like the book but he talks alot about baseball and muscle cars Not many pictures I would have liked to see pics of whe I thought Lou Gramm might have some interesting stories to tell, and he does From the start, you can tell he has deep affection for his hometown Rochester I enjoyed reading about his love of the town His attempts at putting a band together before Mick Jones was interesting Maybe the most enjoyable parts is where he discusses the work on Foreigner s first four albums and working on his first solo releases There is a little whining I stress a little because I think he does try to see the other side of things and he accepts responsibility for a number of things and then, he probably does have something of a legitimate complaint s He complains about critics calling Foreigner music corporate arena rock That s a good description of Foreigner s catalog It s okay that they sought to make money Lou describes their songwriting proces just couldn t get into it, though it did make me dust off my foreigner music Jukebox HeroFor anyone that loves rock music this is a must Still today Foreigner is on all my play lists and I have many CD s It shows the journey of dreams to reality some great, some devastating but all a part of Lou Gramms life. Awesome read A great read and life story from one of my B.C before Christ rock and roll heros A great story of God s mercy and love. People will forever relate Lou Gramm to Foreigner but he was so much I grew up listening to them around my dad He was a musician in his early days before I was born and I want to know what love is is my parents wedding song I cry every time I hear it, I don t know why Lou is bitterly honest about his days in Foreigner which unfortunately aren t at all peachy but he also sticks to his love for performing and creating music Although Foreigner didn t quite work out, it didn t deter him from having a solo career and side projects which takes a lot of guts I admire him for continuing to do what he felt in his heart even though surely, Saddened by his bitterness and disappointed to learn Gramm s true feelings about some of my favorite Foreigner songs.
