Lita Ford, the blonde bombshell who used to be in the Runaways is in the middle of a string of interviews, when she picks up the phone for The Examiner. What is so interesting about Lita is the fact that she is about to release a live album and it's really good. Recorded at the Canyon Club in California, the album is basically a remembrance from her recent tour with with Def Leppard and got a few opportunities to play a few solo shows live. This recording is one of those opportunities. It's called "The Bitch is back, Live".
"I'm in the middle of writing a book right now , What we're doing is this holiday season, we are trying to finish the book for Harper Collins", Ford said. It's going to be called Living Like a Runaway. "It's due out March of 2014", Ford said.
So the most important question is, will their be a tour? "I sure fricking hope so, YEAH", said Ford,with enthusiasm. The record is good but it's way too short. Lita's career spans decades, and she has enough material for at least a two CD release set. "People will listen to it and say man,it's over already? at least you know people are not getting bored listening to it", Ford said. As for the vast library of songs that Ford did not include on this record, she says " We're changing songs as we go, we feel the same way, there's so many good songs out there".
Currently, Lita Ford is in an acoustic phase, I have a yearning to wanna play "Lisa" back to back with "Mother". I think that it will be amazing but I wanna make sure it's not gonna be boring to the audience", Ford said. Trust us:, It won't be. "We go through different stages, we just added "Cherry Bomb" and "Black leather" to the set, Ford said.
So with a book and new record a tour would be in order. The tour would be in the spring and summer of 2014. Eventually, Ford would be making a motion picture on her life story. There is no middle of the road with Lita Ford. People either like her or don't. That movie would be a great tool to show where she came from and what she experienced.
Ford is no stranger to internet rumors. One of the biggest was that she gave up music and opened a hair salon. She's not into any of that . One thing she is into is working with School of Rock kids. in fact, at Sellersville in August of last year she had a brief session with them to teach them what she knows.
The Bitch is back, Live will be released in November. Her website has more information on all of her projects.
