Mick Jones, the founder of Foreigner and composer of their greatest hits, among them Feels Like the First Time, I Want to Know What Love Is, Cold As Ice and Waiting for a Girl Like You, has written the story of Foreigner. And the story of his life, which includes performing with the Beatles in 1964, with Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding in 1967, with Johnny Hallyday, Spooky Tooth, George Harrison – and, of creating one of rock music’s biggest bands.
IIlustrated throughout with classic and previously unseen photos from Mick’s own collection, this lavish book is available in two deluxe editions. Published as the band celebrate their 40th anniversary.
A Foreigner’s Tale is available in two versions, both produced to the highest standard. The Classic is a lavish, full color hardback with specially commissioned cover art work. The Signature version is the same core book, but part of a strictly limited edition (500 copies). Each copy is signed by Mick Jones, bound in leather and presented in a clamshell box. It also includes two photographic prints; one of Foreigner in 1977 by Don Delessio, the other of the band in 2016, by Bill Bernstein.
