ROCK group Foreigner’s main man and Portsmouth native Mick Jones has become the first person to be inducted into Portsmouth Guildhall’s Wall of Fame.

In a ceremony at the Guildhall, Andy Grays, chairman of Portsmouth Cultural Trust, presented Mick with a copy of the framed picture that is now hanging on the wall. Foreigner had huge hits in the 1980s, including I Want to Know What Love Is, Waiting for a Girl Like You and Cold as Ice.

Mick, who was joined by several family members at the ceremony, said: ‘It’s very special to get this. As we were travelling here through the streets, I was just thinking about how this is where I developed my wanderlust.’

His band played the venue last night.
