Lita Ford 's new book Living Like A Runaway: A Memoir will be published on November 11th. In this 320-page hardcover book, the former lead guitarist of The Runaways opens up about the 70s and 80s music scene, and her extraordinary life and career.
Lita Ford lived her dreams, until her life turned into a nightmare. She left home at age 16 to join the worlds first all-female rock group, The Runaways - a band whose legend was sealed by the 2010 hit movie starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning - and went on to become the first woman hard rock guitarist, a platinum-selling star who gave Ozzy his first Top Ten hit. She is also the mother of two sons whose harrowing tale of her catastrophic marriage to a metal rocker makes Ike and Tina Turner sound like life at the country club.
