Lou Gramm performed at Soiled Dove Underground last night in Denver. Having seen him nine months ago at Taste of Colorado, I will say he sounds 100% better than last September. My sister shot a lot of video - see below or visit LauraRocks247 on YouTube. Please forgive the waiters and waitresses crossing in front of the screen, there's a lot of foot traffic in this venue.

Cold As Ice

Lou's guitarist Michael Staertow invited us backstage before the show and I was able to congratulate him on his induction in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, get a few items signed and snap a photo (see below). I told Lou I was a huge Def Leppard fan and could he remember a "good Mutt Lange story."

He thought about it for a second and said, "When we were recording Foreigner 4, Mutt had just come off working with AC/DC on Back in Black. So when it came time for us to record vocals, he kept wanting me to sing like Brian Johnson (makes gravel-voiced sound effect) Grrhhrhrrrrhh. Rrrhhhgghhh. And I'm like, Mutt, I don't sing like that. I can't sing like that! And Mutt kept pushing me to sing like Brian. Finally Mutt realized he wasn't gonna get that out of me and said fine, just be yourself! But he's a sweetheart of a guy and a brilliant producer."

FYI - they did NOT play "Long Long Way To Go" last night. The only encore was "Hot Blooded." It was a quick hour and 15 minute set with no opening act, but I really enjoyed his vocal performance.
