The best music of Lita Ford - heavy metal icon's top major hits
When The Runaways released their third album Waiting for the Night, the group continued on their way, only without a soloist Sheri Carrie. After her departure, the attention of the public quickly switched to Joan Jettwho took over as lead vocalist. However… very soon, when there was one less member on the stage, Lita Ford has finally come to the fore! Even then, in the distant 70s, it was obvious: Ford would become an idol, much more than just a solo guitarist ... When the group broke up, Lita Ford followed in the footsteps of Joan Jett and also began a solo career. But if Jett managed to stay close to his rock and roll roots 1970's, Ford went much further...
