Foreigner ex-frontman Lou Gramm has announced that he will be releasing a new autobiography on May 1.
The rocker's Juke Box Hero: My Five Decades in Rock 'n' Roll, co-written with Scott Pitoniak, will detail his early years in Rochester, New York, his career writing and performing with Foreigner, his split with the band and subsequent solo career.
The book will also cover Gramm's life-threatening fight against an egg-sized tumor in his brain, which doctors told him he'd never recover from in 1997, and the years of rehab that followed.
Gramm opens up about the effects of his surgery, including memory loss that made him need to bring his own lyrics to the stage during performances. He also talks about the influence his parents' musical careers had on his own relationship with music.
Gramm will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame awards ceremony in New York City on June 13.
