Happy 71st birthday to original Foreigner frontman Louis Andrew Grammatico, aka Lou Gramm. "Midnight Blue" is the first single from his debut solo album Ready or Not. It is Gramm's highest charting single to date, reaching #5 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Fun Fact: Gramm's pre-Foreigner band, Black Sheep, was the first American band to be signed to Chryslis Records and was the opening act for Kiss.

However...

Their touring gig, and subsequently Black Sheep, ended when an accident on the New York Thruway destroyed their equipment van on Christmas Eve, 1975.
