Edward John 'Ed' Gagliardi (February 13, 1952 – May 11, 2014) was an Americanbass guitarist who was the original bass player for the 1970s rock band Foreigner. He was a member of Foreigner from the beginning in 1976. Gagliardi played a Rickenbackerbass guitar left-handed even though he was a naturally right-handed. He claimed he did that because of his devotion to Paul McCartney as bass playing inspiration. Gagliardi was on the albums Foreigner and Double Vision, but he was replaced by Rick Wills in 1979.
In 1981 he was part of the band Spys with former Foreigner keyboardist Al Greenwood.
