Lita Ford Biography
Ford was born Lita Rossana Ford to a British father, and an Italian mother in London, England. She moved with her family to the United States at age 4. She began playing the guitar at age 11. Her vocal range is that of a mezzo-soprano.
In 1975 at the age of 17 she joined the all-female rock band The Runaways, for whom she played lead guitar.
After the group folded in 1979, she began a solo career. Her first two albums, Out for Blood and Dancin' on the Edge were moderately successful. Out For Blood featured the single Out For Blood . Her next album Dancin' on the Edge was even more successful. It featured the single Fire in my Heart which reached the top 10 in several countries. The next single Gotta Let Go was one of Ford's biggest hits. It reached number one on the Mainstream Rock charts.
Ford toured extensively and made several guest appearances on TV shows for the next four years, but had no releases. By the time Ford returned again, the lighter pop-metal she had long favored had broken through to mainstream audiences, which set the stage for her most commercially successful album, 1988's Lita. With Sharon Osbourne as her manager, the album featured four commercial hits, including the #1 Kiss Me Deadly , #9 Back to the Cave , #2 Close My Eyes Forever , and #3 Falling In and Out of Love (co-written with Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe). The ballad Close My Eyes Forever, was a duet with Ozzy Osbourne. It was a Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 hit, reaching #8.
Her next release was called Stilleto. It featured the singles Hungry and Lisa ; which was dedicated to her mother.
Ford's next release was Dangerous Curves. Ford's last release would be with ZYX Records and would be titled Black. It was only readily available in Europe.
Ford was asked by VH-1 to be in the cast of The Surreal Life for its 7th season, in 2007. She declined.
Ford appears in the 1992 film Highway to Hell as 'The Hitchhiker'.
During her solo years, she was an endorsee of B.C. Rich guitars and used Warlock, Eagle, Mockingbird and Bich single and double-neck models.
