I had a chance to speak with Lita Ford Check out what she had to say below

Dante: Is there any new music in the works?

Lita Ford: Yes there is new music in the works. We are writing at the moment.

Dante: How far along are you in putting together a full album?

Lita Ford: Got about half the record demoed. So we still have a long way to go. But its exciting. Sorry I can’t give away too much.

Dante: Any idea of when it might be released?

Lita Ford: We are hoping for a 2016 spring release. Fingers crossed.

Dante: When your book Living Like A Runaway is released in February of next year what can fans expect to read?

Lita Ford: Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll. With a twist of humor. It’s a cool book about being a chick in a rock band. Not sure about February, but I think its safe to say the Spring.

Dante: How far back does it start and where does it leave off?

Lita Ford: Harper Collins wanted the rock n roll parts and were not interested in the husband and wife parts. So we begin the book during a rocking party I had one night , and it’s end’s during the present.

Dante: This current tour looks like it’s a mix of festivals and theaters. Which do you prefer?

Lita Ford: We have played all kinds of venues. So long as the fans are having fun and are comfortable it really doesn’t matter to me.

Dante: On September 20th you will be preforming at the first Food Truck & Rock Carnival in Clark NJ. This event looks like its geared toward families who like to rock out and have a good time. It looks like a festival that offers everything. What are your thoughts?

Lita Ford: My fan base stems from moms and dads to their kids loving living like a runaway. So these gigs cover my entire fan base. I can’t wait for this show. But moms and Dads need to keep their children away from the P.A. column . if this place has one. Some times it can make a child sick. I’ve seen this at various shows when a child is too close to the speakers. But I always point out the kids and give them a gift . Throw a T shirt in the audience or a hat. Some thing , our Bassist Marty O Brien is always throwing picks. It’s a good show for the whole family.

Dante: What is next for you after this tour?

Lita Ford: Well I don’t think the tour slows down until November, then it will be time for Christmas. We will take a small break and I will get ready for the book , digging through pictures for the book. And recording the album.

Dante: Would you like to say anything to your fans?

Lita Ford: OH Hell yes ! Hey you guys n gals. I can’t wait to see you and get your booties down to the Food Truck & Rock Carnival. I’ll see you soon, can’t wait to rock your socks off. Along w Marty OBrien on bass and Bobby Rock on drums. Patrick Kennison on guitar and vocals, we will crush and destroy…….
