Foreigner Singer

The Journey Scandal is

GREAT for Business!!!

9/19/2011 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0915_kelly_hansen_salahi_getty_EXThe Michaele Salahi scandal is the BEST thing that could've happened for the Journey concert tour ... so says the lead singer of fellow '80s rock band Foreigner ... you know, the "Cold as Ice" dudes.

Foreigner is currently touring with Journey -- and lead singer Kelly Hansen tells us he's blown away by all the publicity Neal Schon has brought to the tour by simply being the "other man" in a celebrity love triangle.

Hansen joked, "I'm thinking about staging my own kidnapping ... if only I could tolerate being around those horribly obnoxious women from one of those shows for more than 5 minutes."

The rocker says he was "shocked" to see the former "Real Housewives of D.C." star at the concert in Nashville this week ... but says she was acting like everything was totally normal.

There's a problem here    

Nothing like some old dude with a bad dye job and 80's hair style trying to look like he's still got it. Neal Schon's got it alright, and I'm betting he's going to need a whole zh1tload of penicillin when this old hag is done with him.

So TMZ sends a camera man to the show and he thinks they have made it back to the big time. I love how these 80's bands group up together so that the one song you don't mind by them adds up to like five when a bunch of them are together. One of the funniest things I ever saw was two years ago when Poison was playing in town and there were five chicks with big hair hanging outside the bands hotel trying to score. I was like oh my god these women just fell out of a time warp all dressed up like they did when Poison was on MTV (hillllllarious).

Blown away by their total lack of respect for their spouses. Married only 2 months ago? You were wildly in love and committing your life? Marriage is an exclusive sex contract...hope their spouses take em to the cleaners....seriously 2 months? way to TRY and work it out? Husbands and wives are totally disposable. Sad. I'm sorry foreigner has to put up with journey taking their groupies up on stage and making a complete joke of their show. Totally unprofessional and horrible taste...even for rockers. Elvis didnt bring his white granny panty clad mistresses up on stage.

The story made a reference: "80s rock band Foreigner..."

Actually Foreigner hit the charts in 1976, when as others have pointed out, the incomparable Lou Gramm was performing lead vocals.
