LITA FORD TO PLAY
POMPANO BEACH AMP.
Rock N' Roll Queen, Lita Ford, is coming to Pompano Beach! Lita, along with LA GUNS, KIX, and SLAUGHTER will take to the stage at the Pompano Beach Amphitheater on August 28, 2015. In advance of her performance, Lita took time out from her busy touring schedule to do an interview with Rock Band Reviews. Here is the interview...
Q: As a young girl growing up, did you know that you wanted to be an entertainer?
Yes I did. There was no doubt in my mind. I could see it from the time I was 10 -11. There was no question and the most important thing to me was i had the support of my parents. They were my biggest fans.
Q: Who were some of the musical artists that influenced you and your music style?Deep Purple, was my all time favorite. Also Black Sabbath, Tony’s riffs, and Ritchie Blackmore’s lead’s were wicked. They will last forever those bands.
Q: What was it that drew you to play the guitar?
My heart, it was just something that I was driven to do.
Q: Your voice is also your instrument. What, if anything, do you do to maintain your vocals?
I try to stay away from things that blow on me. Like air vents. In cars, air planes and ceiling fans. They make me sick if they are directly blowing on my face, and I end up with a sore throat . Although I love them on a humid sticky hot sweaty stage. LOL
Q: What was it like when you first saw the Runaways movie, your reaction?
I know the actress’s did a great job. But It’s not something I care to see, from the trailers it just doesn’t seem like they got my character correct . I have only seen the trailers, which are inaccurate.
Q: Any chance of a RUNAWAYS reunion sometime soon? I mean, hell froze over for the Eagles eventually.
Yeah Right? Ha Ha Ha ! I agree. I would LOVE one.
