Lita Ford Plots 'Real' Return
Lita Ford is planning a May release for her new album, "Living Like A Runaway", on SPV Records. The album will feature guitar hero Gary Hoey. "Gary Hoey and I wanted to approach this record by getting back to basics," Ford explains. "We want to strip away all the electronics and plug-ins and keep it to vocals, guitar, bass and drums. Going back to basics is going back to what punk, metal and The Runways was for me. 'Living Like A Runaway' means freedom and empowerment. To do what I want and to pursue my dreams while answering to no one." Ford's previous album, "Wicked Wonderland", was panned by critics for what some saw as a focus on Ford's now ex-husband, Jim Gillette, rather than on Ford's own vocals and guitar playing. Ford recently told Classic Rock Revisited, "the last album I did was called Wicked Wonderland, I put it out with Jim Gillette, and we were married at the time. It is kind of a Jim/Lita album and not a really true Lita album. I got a lot of schpeel about that. A lot of people have told me that they want a real Lita album, and I know what they mean. They are going to get it." SPV A&R Representative/Product Manager Olly Hahn said, "When I bought 'Dancin' On The Edge' back in 1984 I never thought that I would ever sign Lita Ford to a label. But a dream of mine came true and it's a huge honor for us at SPV/Steamhammer to have one of the leading women in rock 'n' roll on our label." Thanks for the report to Peter Hodgson,
