Lou Gramm was the Lead Singer and Songwriter with the 80’s band Foreigner. Superb band. Amazing lyrics. Memorable sound.

Lou Gramm is touring again, after his battle with a Brain Tumor. Michael Staertow is on Lead Guitar. Close your eyes and you would swear that it was Foreigner up on stage.

Michael’s Acoustic Christmas CD, was recorded with  Andy Knoll. No vocals. Just mellow Guitar and Keys. Perfect for get togethers around Christmas and New Years.

I have a post about the Acoustic Christmas CD on my Zenfolio site. Thought that the visitors to this site might also be interested.

It really shows off Michael’s range of talent. On stage with Lou Gramm, he delivers a powerful Guitar presence. The Acoustic Christmas CD is a melodic reinterpretation of Christmas Classics. Beautifully played, well-arranged and produced.

How often do you have a major Musician “sharing” a CD with their fans?

He is an awesome Guitarist. Clearly a Master of the Guitar.

I’ll sum up in two words: He Rocks!!!
