Halestorm's Lzzy Hale Talks Lita Ford Inspiration


(Classic Rock) Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale has called Lita Ford an inspiration, and says she couldn't have had a future in the music industry without Ford's trailblazing career.

The pair were on tour together across the US earlier this year - and Hale says seeing the former Runaway in action had a profound impact on her as she watched from the sidelines.

Hale tells Guitar World: "She's like one of my foremothers of rock. This woman is one of the few that never quit, that never gave up regardless of what she had to go through.

"We had a lot of talks on tour about how she literally kicked the door down. She was telling me stories of things she had to go through - just because she was a girl in rock - that I've never had to go through. The reason I never had to go through them is because she had to. So I owe a lot to this woman.

"There were so many times along the way where she could have said, 'F*** this, I'm out.' But she's still doing it, at 57, in her bright red leather pants. It was like, 'Man, I have no excuse at all to not keep going.' It was very, very inspiring to play with her.

"She made me realize that I'm supposed to be here, and I'm supposed to do this - this is where I need to be." Read more here.
