Rocker Lita Ford was the lead guitarist for the all-female rock band the Runaways, which also featured Joan Jett. After the band split, Lita went on to pursue a solo career in the 80s and had a Top Ten single with the song “Close My Eyes Forever” from the album simply entitled “Lita”. That album went platinum and made Lita Ford a household name with “Kiss Me Deadly” and the duet with Ozzy Osbourne being featured on radio and MTV in heavy rotation. Lita Ford was one of the first women in heavy metal to be considered a sex symbol. Her posters adorned the walls of both male and female fans throughout the 1980s Hair Metal reign. Lita is still out rocking live and releasing new albums. You can find links to Lita Ford’s sites right below the gallery.
