Living Like a Runaway: A Memoir (Trade Paperback) AUTHOR: Lita Ford PUBLISHER: Dey Street Books ALL PRODUCTS: Lita Ford THEME: Music Related UPC: 9780062270658 “Heavy metal’s leading female rocker” (Rolling Stone) bares all, opening up about the Runaways, the glory days of the punk and hard-rock scenes, and the highs and lows of her trailblazing career and life off the stage “Lita Ford is the coolest and most rock-and-roll female guitarist I ever heard. No guitarist—male or female—ever looked better with a Gibson Explorer than Lita.”—Slash “The mother of all metal.”—Los Angeles Times Wielding her signature black guitar, Lita Ford shredded the stereotypes of female musicians throughout the 1970s and ’80s, first with the world’s first major all-female rock group, The Runaways, then as a platinum-selling solo artist who shared the bill with the Ramones, Van Halen, Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Poison, and others—and who gave Ozzy Osbourne his first Top 10 hit. Then followed more than a decade of silence and darkness: a tumultuous marriage that left her feeling trapped, isolated from the rock-and-roll scene for more than a decade—and most tragically—alienated from her two beloved sons. Living Like a Runaway is Lita Ford’s epic story—the dramatic chronicle of a talented pioneer who changed popular music; of a fierce woman in the male-dominated rock scene; of a wife and mother caught in a difficult relationship; of a returning queen who has reclaimed her soul and stormed back to the stage “as badass as ever” (Guitar Player). About the Author Lita Ford was the lead guitarist of the Runaways before embarking on her platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated solo career. In 2014 she received Guitar Player’s Certified Legend Award and was inducted into their Hall of Fame. She lives in Southern California.
