The rock group Foreigner still has absolutely no idea what love is, it has emerged.
More than 30 years after imploring to the world: “I want you to show me”, the British-American band is still none the wiser.
The group had hoped it would soon find an answer after releasing I Want to Know What Love Is as a single late in 1984.
Hopes were high after it became a smash hit, knocking Band Aid’s Do They Know It’s Christmas? off the top of the charts to become the UK number one for several weeks.
It also topped the US charts, replacing Madonna’s Like a Virgin.
But despite the huge publicity around the song, nobody has actually told the long-haired musicians what love is.
Foreigner’s biographer Lorraine Fisher, 34, said: “It’s lead singer Lou Gramm’s biggest regret.
“He’s had to go through life still trying to work out what love is.
“You’d think with all the fame and fortune they amassed from the song that someone would have told him.”
When approached by the Suffolk Gazette for a comment, singer Gramm, now 68, said: “I gotta take a little time. A little time to think things over.”
