LITA FORD Interviewed By MELODIC ROCK CONCERTS; Audio Available

September 29, 2009

Matt Becker of Melodic Rock Concerts recently conducted an interview with '80s hard rock queen Lita Ford. During the chat, Lita discusses her re-entry into the world of music, the writing process of her new album, "Wicked Wonderland", her time in Sturgis at the Buffalo Chip, the upcoming tour with QUEENSRĊ¸CHE, and everything in between. Husband Jim Gillette (ex-NITRO singer) even joins in on the fun. She says, "I think fifteen years ago I left an empty pair of shoes when I went away. And I think that empty pair of shoes is still sitting there, unfilled. So I'm back to fill them." She adds, "It's weird because fifteen years ago, record companies didn't know what to do with me. They were at a loss because I didn't do what they wanted me to do."

Listen to the entire interview at this location.

In an "innovative" music marketing move, Ford has released a single from "Wicked Wonderland", her first album in 15 years, on, the world's leading fetish site. It is believed to be the first time a relatively high-profile music release has been launched through a web site catering to the alternative fetish lifestyle.

"Wicked Wonderland"'s erotic song "Bed", which explores themes of bondage, kink and power exchange in a strong and highly artistic style, will be available exclusively on prior to the album's release.

"My husband Jim Gillette and I have carved out our own path to develop a wonderful and close family life," said Lita. "Though we're a long-married couple, we both have very active imaginations, including being kinky with each other, and that's what this album is about. It's sort of a sexual autobiography. We've partnered up with because it's our favorite outfitter for kink products."

While previewing "Bed", fans of Lita and Stockroom will also be able to view and order from "Lita's Collection", a special selection of some of the fetish gear that Lita and Jim have enjoyed, along with her personal choice of Syren latex fashion styles.

Lita's first new studio album in 14 years, "Wicked Wonderland", is scheduled for release in Europe on October 2 via earMUSIC/Edel. The set will be issued in the U.S. on October 6 through Lita's own JLRG Entertainment label as a regular CD and limited-edition vinyl with different artwork.
