Gramm’s rock life included Foreigner’s chart-topping years and some solo work. And it also included plenty of drugs for about two decades. After the chaos of a party following a concert he realized that he was going down the wrong path. He said that he fell to his knees and asked God to take the plague of addiction away. God answered his plea with drug and alcohol rehab. By the grace of God, he has been clean and sober ever since.
Life threw Gramm a big challenge five years after he gave up drugs, in the form of a brain tumor. A tumor is an ordeal for anyone, and for some might even lead to relapse into addiction. But Gramm sought treatment with the best hospitals and kept his faith in the Lord. Like in Psalms 18:2, “The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” Gramm’s faith in God did not waver and now he is healthy.
