Oral History Information
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!
