"Very very special guest is with us today. The architect of the Ban Foreigner Mick Jones will be joining us a lot of people. Give these guys a hard time called. Rina Rock or corporate rock. Sometimes I know many of you may be turning your nose up and thinking these guys up this jury rock and roll or they were playing it safe while others were out there changing the world you know I can even hear myself say that at one time or another but really. That's unfair were they. Huge between nineteen seventy seven in one thousand nine hundred five without a doubt They owned the charts and yes. They never stray far from their original classic rock. Sound though I'd say they did keep adding subtle tricks along the way that capitalized on their previous successes and made them even bigger and bigger. Here's what I see. Now I it is impossibly hard to write a hit song just one. I will gladly not in approval to just about anyone who can pull that off now. How about pulling it off more than a dozen times? Yeah that is very special. As for influence maybe mic and the foreigner boys didn't cause ripples through the ages but they certainly did in their time. They were impossible to ignore if you were in the charts game at that time. Fact a purely by coincidence on the day I spoke to Mick unbeknownst to me our friend Martin popoff on his history and five songs. Podcast released an episode entitled the Foreigner. Effect where Martin shows how mix extraordinary success influenced some other rock acts like rainbow. You'RE RIGHT HE TED NUGENT. And Bad Company. Well make did help. Produce Their nineteen eighty-six fame and fortune album. So that one is not a complete surprise. So you see. There was some influence there at the time How successful were they at selling hints? Well to the tune of eighty million records worldwide. Sixteen top forty songs. So who is Mick Jones? Why does he get all the accolades from the band success? Well as I said at the top. He was the architect. He's the guy that's slaved for fifteen years paying his dues as man assistant producer at you know living small and close to the ground so he could avoid becoming a dentist. Yeah he and Roger Taylor were going to open a practice in Norwich I kid I kid I kid well sort of as you'll see morning Portsmouth. In the very south of England he fell in love with rock and roll just like the rest of us and then he got some lucky breaks as you will hear very early lessons in the UK. Going to France to work with Johnny Halliday and others hanging with the Beatles just before they are coming to America working with Jimmy Page on and on and then he hooks up with Gary. Right of spooky tooth. Where Mick is in the last iterations of that act. But that is the prototype. That is where it all comes together and mix head then. It's just assembling the right guys together. All of that accumulates in finding the voice. The singular voice that just fits perfectly for the music he puts together and Demos. Of course. I'm talking about the amazing civil sounds of Mr Lou. Gram together the two of them for about ten years can do no wrong from the opening track of the first album feels like the first time to the Monster Power Ballad. I WanNa know what love is. There is just no stopping these guys but by nineteen ninety like many things. The music has changed drastically and the partnership between make and Lou was at a low ebb. So they did. What bands do there was a split But it came and went for several years. They would get back together and while they could get it back on tour. It didn't really happen on record anymore. In two thousand six mick made a more permanent change and brought in Kelly Hansen on vocals. Who Do the big singing and perhaps brought more a dynamic frontman capabilities with him? He's been with make ever since and together in two thousand nine foreigner was able to crack the top forty once again this year. The ban was about do something. Insanely cool Back in two thousand seventeen Lou. Gram DENNIS ELLIOTT IMAC DONALD AND AL greenwood. All original members would join the current lineup for select shows and for a few songs. Last year became a little more frequent Though Lou continues to have health issues so what was anticipated to be more of a tour called double vision than in now? didn't quite materialize. But this year they were ready to really do it along with bringing Kansas along with them to open it would have been classic. Rock Heaven That is until covert nineteen hit and we know everybody is now off the road so we are honored to have mix first interview since the concert. Business crashed along with most everything else. Due to the pandemic. We talk a little bit about it. And what might be on the other side of this whole mess Mostly I want to get the full career story of the man and how the pieces all fit together in the creation of foreigner. So what's a guy going to do when he can't be on stage being box hero? He is going to talk to me in great detail about how he got to be one of the most successful songwriters of the rock and roll era. Go grab a good cup of tea. And let's get to know Mick. Jones of foreigner didn't know how to.

"At geiko could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. You know, what I'm wondering at some point. If Scott sprites are ever cooled off what we would come in. With Mikey see as his song? Who saying you're as cold as ice? You're willing to sacrifice. I love who was that. Remember that song? Fortunately, we don't eat it just like five straight weeks. He's I mean in fleet go eleven and four in college picks the last five weeks. A four hundred NFL week. Louise. Or we could go ice ice baby. That's that's a good one. Let's let's go. But we know that we have no vanilla ice needed. Because spray tsar is hot indeed joins us right now from Vegas with his three college picks in his NFL pick first off the biggest games got. We know as Georgia and Florida what have you found watching the trans in Vegas there? Well, I'll tell you. What guys first of all it's Kansas that sing that song? When you've been in the business for twenty nine you remember those songs? Nice job, Florida. Georgia Georgia, lied about six and a half to seven here guys, but total at fifty two but Georgia's been getting both public and sharp action fifty four percent of the tickets or the public fifty nine percent of the overall money or the sharp action. Also on the BULLDOGS and quick note on this one the Gators have covered for the last five favorites covered seven of the last ten and the last four have not been all that great to watch an average margin of victory of twenty four points per game, and all were double digit margins. Scott, give me one more college. Where the sharps are on one side. But I know reading your stuff that there's an NFL game where all the money is coming on on one side. So I want that as well. Okay. Well, the biggest public versus sharps differential for the non betting fan might not be one. They're paying attention to TCU's land thirteen and a half at Kansas sixty five percent of the public on TCU, but sixty seven percent of the overall money in the sharps on the Kansas jayhawks, plus the points, that's the biggest. Ios versus pros the biggest I guess you could say NFL lopsided sharp game. The Packers getting about nine and a half at the Rams eighty eight percent of the overall money big sharp side on Green Bay. What's the point Scott's bright shirts? A good thing. You're hot picking games because you're cold picking songs. I've got this as foreigner cold as ice not Kansas upon further review and researcher. Just so, you know, well, I'm glad to hear that. I got that wrong. Anything else? You right. All right here, we go. Give us your three college pick, my friend. By the way, the battle. Overpay state guys, and you know, the aspects last five win came by a grand total of twenty three points, including a three point win as he twenty five point favorite over San Jose last week, the is banged up. They scored just sixteen points in that win over the Spartans down was a defense that gave up forty one points per game and ranked one hundred fifty and total yards allowed per game on the year. A like the quarterback for Nevada tight Ganji. He's connected on better than seventy two percent of his passes and two of his last three games. Nice TD too. I n t ratio he is a mobile quarterback. And I think he's going to give ego state some issues again the aspects pinged up on offense. We took the points with about taking Missouri. Minus the touchdown over Kentucky in seven here Kentucky's got one chance I think to keep this one close, and that's to CEPA temple by using the ground game. But the problem is Missouri owns one of the better run deep into the country. Guys. They give up just over one hundred thirty rushing yards per game Kentucky's passing game is all but not exist. Instant which means their offense could be in big trouble for field. We're back in Missouri. Minus the points taking Houston, minus the points over south Florida guys, this one's anywhere from eight to nine Dowd. Houston Cougars being the favourite. We were hoping that south Florida would get to this game undefeated, they eked by Yukon toll foot to do. So we know that Ed Oliver may not play in this game. He's listed as questionable with that knee injury. But I love the balance of the Houston offense nation's third ranked offense until the yards per game ninth best passing game eighteenth best ground attack. We're going to lay the points here with a against south Florida. We think they're a bit overrated and the NFL we're gonna take those nine and a half with all that sharp money and back the Green Bay Packers. When you look at the Rams, they built a resume whipping, Oakland, Arizona and San Francisco teams of the combined record at three and seventeen. There are other wins by three over Denver by to oversee ATL by seven over Minnesota in kind of a misleading. Final score against the chargers. The charge. Had a blown special teams play that allowed that to get to twelve points. I like this Packer diguise fifth against the path often sport and passing Aaron Rodgers getting nine and a half. I bet he's taken notice for what it's worth we're going back rebate, plus the points. All right. So let's go with the numbers here real quick Nevada to and you're getting two and a half against San Diego State. And by the way, I mentioned that Felicia, and you guys agree, and you agree. That's the game. You both like Nevada plus two and a half against San Diego State, Missouri, minus seven against Kentucky. Houston, minus seven and a half against USF and the Packers plus nine and a half at the LA. Rams. All right. Good stuff, man. By the way. I gotta tell you. You know, our people like music, and and you had me I was buying Kansas because Kansas foreigner haven't very similar sound. I got a text though shortly after you said that from one Jay Bilas that said cold as ice was foreigner, very disappointing. There it is. In fact, he added disappointed at myself, Lou gram, what am I thinking? He had a distant Bilas has a distant cousin that played keyboard for foreigner. Wow. Al Greenwood how about that talented family? The good news is Scott. You're not cold as ice. Let's keep it that way guys. Hey, buddy. Good luck to you. Thank you. Take care.

And he and fully agree on that one Missouri, minus seven against Kentucky. Houston, minus seven and a half against USF Packers plus nine and a half at the Rams you. It's amazing. I did not expect I thought going in before I looked at the line Kentucky would be a slight favourite. Maybe even a slight dog at Missouri. I mean with a defense Kentucky place they are a s- touchdown underdog twelfth ranked team in the country is a touchdown dog at Missouri melts. This big. There's Vegas throw out early Christmas presents though, they no, no, I know that seven you think about it has Missouri wanna conference game yet this year has Missouri. Yeah.

They don't give out. They don't. They don't get that early Christmas presents. They also don't look into what I'm looking at right now this season in four non conference games. Drew lock has thrown fifteen touchdown passes in three conference games. He's thrown a total of one touchdown pass this Missouri offense grinds to a halt against a decent defense and Kentucky's defense is way better than decent wolf. So you're taking Kentucky. I'm just saying. I don't buy the line. Yes. Kentucky plus seven give it to me. Deal a deal eighteen innings, seven and a half hours. Dodgers win two one three to their pool with into one.
