    Mick Jones hasn’t been performing with Foreigner consistently.

    Will any of the musicians that recorded these Foreigner songs be in Schenectady tonight, or will it be a tribute band of hired guns?

  2. Greg says:

    Toast,

    There are no other musicians in the band from Foreigner’s glory days. If Jones isn’t with them – and his appearances have been rather sporadic these days – the longest tenured member of the band is multi-instrumentalist Thom Gimbel, who signed on in ’92…

  3. Toast says:

    Well it was a tribute band that played at Proctors tonight. Not one member that recorded any of the songs we know. I don’t know how they get away with it, but that was not Foreigner. It was a cover band.
