Lita Ford, “Every Single Line On My Face Has A Story”

Lita Ford, “Every Single Line On My Face Has A Story”

August 17, 2011

Lita Ford, “Every single line on my face has a story. That’s why I don’t want to get rid of the lines. They’re there and I’m proud of them” rocker Lita Ford tells Style Goes Strong’s Cindy Pearlman.

“I’m touring and traveling and doing shows. That keeps me fit,” Lita continues. “I say to find something you love when it comes to sweating your butt off. For me, it’s singing. For you, it might be something else. When you do something that you love it keeps you fit because you can’t stop doing it.”

When she’s not working, the successful solo artist and former Runaways guitarist spends time with her two sons. She’s also working on new music, the first since her break-up with Nitro frontman Jim Gillette, and touring.

“I’m in the process of writing a wonderful new CD,” she says. “I fall asleep every single night with my cell phone on my chest playing the new songs. I just hit play and then drift off.”

As for being on stage at age 51, she says, “When the crowd is into it and rocking out to you, it’s the best feeling in the world.”
