In the episode's only interview, FOREIGNER's MICK JONES discusses his recent health issues (heart), as well as the band's upcoming tour dates, their latest album (the acoustic) IN CONCERT - UNPLUGGED, producing VAN HALEN's 5150 album, juvenile diabetes, working again with LOU GRAMM, plans for a 40th anniversary (reunion) tour (reuniting the HEAD GAMES lineup), recording new music, singer KELLY HANSEN and much more.

Quotes from the MICK JONES interview:

His heart issues (time at 5.02): "It really gave me a chance to stop and think about things a bit. First of all, think about how the hell I was going to deal with my life after that."

Kelly Hansen (Time 8.39): "He was an incredible addition to the band. It was absolutely vital that we had somebody who could step into 'those shoes'. He's just gone from better to better to better. Can't describe it really. He's just so dedicated."

Van Halen's 5150 (time 12.55) : "I guess I liked to live dangerously.  I had known Sammy (Hagar) quite well over the years and that was the connection. It was a formidable atmosphere when I got there and I was nervous - I really was."

40th year anniversary and working with LOU GRAMM again (25.02): "It's quite possible. We've actually been talking about it. We're all working on trying to make it happen. It's kind of exciting. Hopefully it'll be feasible and possible to pull it off."

REUNITING the HEAD GAMES line up (time 25.43): "Lou and I have communicated and we've kept up a sort of loose communication as I have actually also with Ian McDonald, Al Greenwood, Dennis Elliott and Rick Wills. We're at the early stages, but we're trying to put something together to commemorate (it's scary when I say it) 40 years."
