'That Metal Show' will lean a little more on the classic rock side this week as Foreigner's Mick Jones and Mountain guitar great Leslie West will join Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine for interviews. Meanwhile, Lita Ford will lay down some blistering licks as the special music guest.
Former Runaways members Lita Ford and Cherie Currie played together for the first time in more than 30 years this past October. Most recently (Jan. 9), the two reprised their performance of 'Cherry Bomb' at Ford's headlining show at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, Calif., and this time they were joined by Slash (watch above).
Rock legend Lita Ford has been a professional musician since the age of 16, when she became a part of the Runaways. Having dedicated nearly four decades to the music business, anyone would have a phenomenal stockpile of crazy stories, and Lita Ford told us one of her favorites during an exclusive video interview.
Legendary Runaways member and solo artist Lita Ford recently dropped by Loudwire's studio for an interview. We jumped into serious depths with the heavy metal queen, but before we share that with you, here's a side-splitting tale of how Ozzy Osbourne nearly ruined Easter dinner for Lita and her family.
When it comes to '80s hard rock ballads, it would be hard to beat the Ozzy Osbourne-Lita Ford duet on 'Close My Eyes Forever.' The song became a major hit for both and really helped boost Ford's career in the late '80s. This heartfelt song was penned by the pair after a night out partying when inspiration struck. The track speaks to the deep emotions of trying to capture an elusive love.
