Lita Ford asked her father to use his old reel to reel tape machine as an amp for her newly purchased electric guitar.  With a little soldering, she transformed the tape machine and set out on her next gig.  Soon after she helped form the all-girls Punk Rock band called the Runaways!  Her driving guitar licks and forceful riffs helped establish the band as a cutting edge and innovative contributor to the punk movement.  She went on to recording top selling albums and working with some of her own musical heroes.  With a strong love for her fans, Lita has powered her way into rock history!
