LITA FORD Joins SAMMY HAGAR On Stage In In Las Vegas To Perform LED ZEPPELIN, MONTROSE Classics (Video)

March 27, 2022

Lita Ford joined SAMMY HAGAR & THE CIRCLE on stage this past Friday, March 25 as part of Hagar's 2022 "Sammy Hagar & Friends" residency at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod to perform cover versions of MONTROSE's "Rock Candy" and LED ZEPPELIN's "Rock And Roll". Fan-filmed video of her appearance can be seen below.

A couple of years ago, Lita said that the title of her 1991 album "Dangerous Curves" was "given" to her by her "dear friend" Hagar. "We started writing a song and never finished the song, so I just used the title," she said. "I don't know where that song went — I'll have to check that out..."

Lita recently completed recording her long-awaited new solo album. The follow-up to 2012's "Living Like A Runaway" was once again helmed by guitarist/producer Gary Hoey, who contributes some guitar playing to the disc, alongside the rest of Ford's backing band, which continues to consist of guitarist Patrick Kennison, drummer Bobby Rock and bassist Marty O'Brien.

In January 2021, Lita told SiriusXM's "Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk" that her new album contains "some of the best guitar playing" she has heard "in decades." She added: "And I'm not blowing smoke up my own ass, but Gary and I just nailed it with the guitar playing on this record.

"I'm a huge fan of people like Dick Wagner and Steve Hunter from Alice Cooper's 'Welcome To My Nightmare'. I mean, there's some really great duo guitar players — [JUDAS PRIEST's] Glenn Tipton, K.K. Downing… Those guitar players don't exist anymore — they just don't exist. If you wanna hear them, you have to go back in time a little bit and dig them up into your favorite library, favorite music catalog. But I think Gary and I really nailed it on this next record. It's, like, oh my God. I'm crying — I'm just, like, crying listening to this stuff. It's so badass."

Ford's last release was 2016's "Time Capsule", a collection of songs that were recorded by Lita in the past, but never before made available.

Six years ago, Lita released an autobiography, "Living Like A Runaway: A Memoir", via Dey Street Books (formerly It Books),an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.
