Foreigner - Lou Gramm Denies Foreigner Reunion Rumours

Former Foreigner singer Lou Gramm has poured cold water on rumours he will reunite with the band.

Gramm made moves to put aside his decade-long feud with the band's guitarist Mick Jones ahead of their induction into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame next month (Jun13) and had hinted at the possibility of a reunion tour.

The singer left Foreigner in 2003 due to "miscommunication" between himself and Jones and relations have been strained ever since, but in a recent interview with Classic Rock magazine, Gramm insisted he would be open to a reunion if the pair could rekindle its friendship.

However, Gramm has now reversed his decision, releasing a statement to the publication which reads, "Though both Lou Gramm and Mick Jones will be on hand for the Songwriters Hall of Fame, there are no plans for the two to head out on a reunion tour.

"Despite recent media reports that a reunion is being planned, at present time, there are no dialogues about any dates, though both continue to tour (separately)."

DOES LOU GRAMM TELL THE TRUTH? At Long Last, I Can Set The Record Straight About three years ago, you may have noticed that I suddenly separated from the Lou Gramm Band. You may have heard certain disgusting and untrue allegations about me at that time. Unbelievably, the source of those allegations was none other than my brother, Lou Gramm. In May of 2010, I sued Lou, because: (1) He had borrowed $56,082.74 interest-free from me and was refusing to pay it back; and (2) He refused to pay me for the work I had completed to advance his career; and (3) Worst of all, Lou was publily making untrue statements about my honesty and character. The legal Complaint and the Court's Decision after Trial can be viewed in full at: www.monroecounty.gov. A concise summary of the outcome is as follows. (1) The Complaint in the lawsuit stated that I "...provided a loan of $56,082.74" to Lou, and he "...refused to repay the money." Lou denied this in his answering documents. After he was forced to testify at a deposition under oath, Lou repaid the $56,082.74 in full. (2) Regarding the unpaid wages, the lawsuit said: "...there were 18 LGB performances that had been booked" by me, but Lou dismissed me from the group and paid me "nothing" for my work. Lou denied this in his answering documents, too. The Court's Decision after Trial stated: "Richard is entitled to $4,500 for the shows he scheduled for the Lou Gramm Band that occurred after his termination." (3) Regarding Lou's negative statements about my honesty and character, the lawsuit stated: Lou "told many persons" that I was stealing from him", and that those "untrue, defamatory and slanderous statements" about me are now widespread". Lou denied this, as well. The court's Decision stated: "Louis had no basis to express ...that Richard '"has stolen in excess of $100,000'" "...the court finds that Richard has been damaged in the amount of $25,000.00." As a result of this legal action, Lou has now paid me $85,582.74 plus court fees. As you would expect, I've gone through a very difficult time as a result of this. I think it is important to set the record straight. Richard Gramm
