Lou Grammatico, a graduate from Gates-Chilli High Schoool and Monroe Community College in Rochester NY, became Lou Gramm when he landed the lead singer gig for ‘Trigger” later renamed ‘Foreigner.’

Gramm, who lives in Webster NY,  tells the Democrat and Chronical “I’m tired of the business, It’s time to hang up the mic. The business has changed. The biggest part for me was knowing you were promoting material that’s new and fresh. That hasn’t been the case for me in 25 years.” The 66-year-old goes on to say that he’ll still be involved in the music industry by writing songs for other musicians.

Mick Jones told Billboard Magazine that original Foreigner members Lou Gramm, Ian McDonald and Al Greenwood will be appearing on select dates for Foreigner’s 40th Anniversary Tour which will kick off in Syracuse July 11 at the Lakeview Amphitheatre, July 14th at Bethel Woods, July 18th at Saratoga Performing Arts Center and July 21st at Darien Lake.
