Foreigner: Old As Ice?

Video clips haven’t surfaced yet, but last night on The Tonight Show, Jay Leno poked fun at the Foreigner “Feels Like The First Time” tour presented by AARP. He said that “this is when you know you’re getting old,” referring to the fact that AARP was presenting the tour. Maybe it is a sign of the times, but I think Foreigner still sounds great. Lots of bloggers have picked up on this story and they seem to either think it is worth a good laugh or a cause for recognizing the passage of time. Either way you won’t hear me poking any fun, even if Foreigner is a bit before my time. While it might be a little funny to picture bands like Foreigner getting older, I say enjoy the fact that while they may be maturing they play good music. It’s only going to get worse. Imagine in 20 years when we’ll be rocking out in packed arenas to boy band reunions or Britney Spears playing her greatest hits.
