Carreer collaborator of Lou Gramm

Foreigner’s legendary songwriting partners, Mick Jones and Lou Gramm, together propelled an arsenal of ten multi-platinum albums and multiple Top 30 hits. Universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world, the band is responsible for some of the greatest rock anthems of our time, including the worldwide No. 1 hit, "I Want To Know What Love Is," which today remains one of the 25 most performed songs in the ASCAP Catalog.

Other iconic songs include "Feels Like The First Time," "Cold As Ice" and "Long, Long Way From Home" from their self-titled 1977 debut album. Major songs in the Jones/Gramm catalog include "Juke Box Hero", "Hot Blooded" and "Waiting For A Girl Like You." A multi-talented and multi-dimensional “musician’s musician,” Jones has also written songs such as “Bad Love” with Eric Clapton and “Dreamer” with Ozzy Osbourne, and produced records for others including Billy Joel’s Storm Front and Van Halen’s 5150. A Grammy and Golden Globe-nominated songwriter, Jones is the winner of the prestigious British Ivor Novello Songwriter award for “The Flame Still Burns,” the soundtrack music for the film Still Crazy.
