Lita Rossana Ford, popularly known as Lita Ford, is a British-born American guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter, who was the lead guitarist in the all-girl hard rock band, The Runaways, in the late 1970s.Their punkish sound and rebellious lyrics helped them get noticed in the rock world. The band was not able to achieve major success in the United States but earned huge popularity overseas, especially in Japan. After the band split in 1979, Ford embarked upon a successful solo career in heavy metal. She took voice lessons, and released her first solo album ‘Out for Blood’, followed by ‘Dancin' on the Edge’. Both the albums did not receive much success, and Ford just vanished from the rock world for a few years. She returned with a bang with her smashing hit album ‘Lita’, which was released in 1988. The single ‘Kiss Me Deadly’ and the ballad, ‘Close My Eyes Forever’ were both big hits. Unfortunately, her success was short-lived, and she vanished from the industry for several years. She re-emerged with the release of ‘Black’ in 1995, and ‘Wicked Wonderland’ almost 15 years later. Her most recent album ‘Time Capsule’ was released in 2016. She was awarded The Certified Guitar Legend Award by the Guitar Player Magazine.
