After vocalist Lou Gramm
's departure in 2003, Jones had contemplated disbanding Foreigner permanently. However it was Jason Bonham who talked him into reforming the band. Jones explained to the Sunday Express
: "Jason and I had known each other for a long time but lost touch until a mutual friend put us together. He said, 'Why don't you reform the band? People out there would love to hear the songs again.' At the time, Lou was touring under the name of Foreigner, but he wasn't doing very well or sounding very good. So, within six months, we were touring again."
