North American syndicated rock radio show and website InTheStudio With Redbeard: The Stories Behind History’s Greatest Rock Bands revisits the summer of 1978 when Foreigner headknocked everybody with their 7x platinum seller sophomore effort Double Vision.
After debuting with their self-titled million seller driven by the instant hit “Feels Like The First Time”, music industry pundits and millions of rock music fans alike were now convinced that it certainly would not be the last time with hits “Double Vision”, “Hot Blooded” and “Blue Morning, Blue Day”. Foreigner rocketed up the charts at such a rate that the half-English half-American sextet soon found themselves out-selling label mates The Rolling Stones.
Foreigner founder Mick Jones discusses with host Redbeard the magical moment of confirmation when a song leaves the artist’s hands for the world to hear. “That is probably the greatest time, when you first hear it on the radio. Then you know it’s out of your hands. It’s on its own. You have your relationship with the song and with an album, (but) that point when you finally hear it on the radio, that’s it. You can’t do anything to it anymore. It’s its own thing from that point on, and you almost say goodbye to that stage.”
