05.07.00 – Beale St. Festival, Memphis (Bri)

This is Brian. Little did we know when we pulled into the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis today that we were sharing the stage with Foreigner! I could barely contain myself all day… mom, we opened for Foreigner! I’ve been waiting, for a gig like this, to come into my life, yeah waiting… here were some highlights:

* During “Hot Blooded,” when Lou Graham walked to the edge of the stage and sang “C’mon baby, do you do more than dance?” — I screamed like a little girl! They played all the hits!

* The sax solo during “Urgent” — that guy dropped to his knees he was so into it! And then, after the solo, as he walked back to his riser, he did a 360!

* During the encore of “I Wanna Know What Love Is” Lou took the entire microphone stand and turned it toward the crowd so it was picking up the audience’s voices! I sang my ass off! You wanna know what love is? I love Foreigner!

P.S… Lou Graham has not aged gracefully.
