373 – Jeff Pilson of Foreigner – Greatest Hits Tour

Foreigner is one of the biggest selling rock bands of all-time with over 80 million records sold worldwide, nine platinum albums and 14 Top 20 hits in the US.  Their songs have become rock anthems – “Juke Box Hero,” “Hot Blooded,” “Cold as Ice,” and “Feels Like the First Time.”  Yet, they also created the blueprint for the power ballad with songs like “Waiting For a Girl Like You” and “I Want to Know What Love Is.” 

The band is celebrating its 45th anniversary with a tour that’s making a stop at Fraze Pavilion in Kettering on Tues August 17th, and to talk about it, we welcome bassist Jeff Pilson – who before his stint in Foreiginer was the bassist for Dokken and has also been an in-demand studio musician.

Pilson talks about what led to him becoming the bassist for Foreigner, what made him pick up the bass in the first place, and what his favorite Foreigner deep cut is.
