Pop quiz! What was the very first-ever vinyl record that Rach ever purchased with her own money?

Here’s a hint: They have 10 multi-platinum albums and 16 Top 30 Hits… and now they’re celebrating 40 years together with a new album called 40 Hits From 40 Years, debuting in May 2017.

Did you figure it out?

It was the iconic "4" by Foreigner!

You might know them from their hit debut single “Feels Like the First Time.” Yea, that’s the one! The song is probably playing on loop in your mind already. (That’s because we’re mind ninjas! Just kidding.) It was the first song Mick Jones, the band’s acoustic lead guitarist, ever wrote for Foreigner. Take a walk down memory lane with Rach and watch the video above to see the band perform that amazing song right in our studio!

Why see them live? Kelly Hansen, the band’s lead vocalist, says, “Every night on stage I say, no tricks, no auto-pitch correction, it’s the real thing.”

“Especially in today’s world where everything is digital, canned, processed and fake… but not you!” says Rach. (Tell us how you really feel!)
