Lita Ford Finds Redemption With New Album

Classic Rock Revisited recently caught up with Lita Ford to discuss her new album, Living Like A Runaway. Here is an excerpt:

CRR: Living Like a Runaway is an album of redemption. Do you agree? Lita: Yeah, I have risen from the ashes. My girlfriend called me and said I was like the Phoenix. She said she was going to buy me a tattoo of the Phoenix. I had no idea what she was talking about, so I Googled it. When I learned what that was, I related to it because I really did have to dig myself out of my situation and rise again.

I am very happy with the record. My manager, the record company and everyone that helped me with the record is happy, too. I can't wait to start playing these songs live.

CRR: How important was it to you to make this album sound like you? Lita: I had to make it sound like me because I had to bury the last album. The only way I could do that was to make a true Lita album. Gary brought the best out of me, on guitar and vocals. I didn't have anybody squashing me down saying, "No, you're doing it all wrong. You're not playing that riff right." You know what? I wrote that f**king riff, so I know how to play it.

I have really had a lot of freedom on this record and that is what makes it sound so True Blue, because it's real. There is no doubling the vocals and tripling the guitars and quadrupling this or that. I really went back to basics on this record. We stuck to bass, drums, guitar and vocals. Read the rest of the interview here, this only scratches the surface.
