LITA FORD Live At SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL

Fan-filmed video footage of Lita Ford‘s June 10 performance at the Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg, Sweden can be seen above.

Lita Ford released a new album, “Time Capsule“, on April 15 via SPV/Steamhammer. The very special and unusual recording turns back the clock to a time when honest, down-to-earth rock music was still handmade and recorded without digital tricks and contraptions.

Time Capsule” is a “throwback” record that boasts identifiable voices and brilliant players jamming without any planning or pressure. Some of the album’s highlights: Billy Sheehan (bass), Rodger Carter (drums), Dave Navarro (mandolin), Jeff Scott Soto (vocals), Rick Nielsen and Robin Zander (backing vocals) and Gene Simmons (bass).

Speaking to Guitar World magazine, Lita stated about how the idea for “Time Capsule” came about:

“There were 15 analog tapes I had in the Caribbean house [where Lita lived while she was married to former NITRO singer Jim Gillette] that I had to go back and get during my divorce. I drug them though the Caribbean dirt and on to a boat and took them back to L.A. I remember we had to bake them because they were so old and had been in that air for so long. I was afraid to put them on the reel because I thought they would flake and fall apart. So we baked them and transferred them over to digital — and it worked!”

Time Capsule” contains ten songs plus an intro and is available as a digipak as well as an LP version and download. It’s Ford‘s gift to fans who love the ’80s, when thrilling vocal performances, raunchy riffs, and loud, growling guitars were as essential as oxygen.

Lita Ford – Living Like A Runaway: A Memoir” came out on February 23 via Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

In this 272-page hardcover book, which was originally expected in 2014, the former lead guitarist of THE RUNAWAYS opens up about the ’70s and ’80s music scene, and her extraordinary life and career.
