Lita Ford, who still knows her? She was one of the first female heavy metal rockers. Once upon a long ago. 1980’s, 1990’s. My teenage heroine. I wanted to be like her. I adored her. Such beautiful music, such a beautiful voice, such a beautiful lady. I was considered to be somewhat deviant: all my friends, all other girls adored male rock stars.
Recently I visited a friend, and she surprised me by playing an old Lita Ford CD, Stiletto. It turned out she adored her as a teenager too. It made for a good talk.
Lita Ford. Still lovin’ this music.
