LITA FORD On THE RUNAWAYS - "I’ve Been In The Process Of Trying To Regroup The Girls"
August 20, 2012, 5 years ago
Vocalist /guitarist LITA FORD is featured in a new interview with Legendary Rock Interviews discussing her new album, Living Like A Runaway, and her career with THE RUNAWAYS. An excerpt is available below:
LRI: It’s been a long time since The Runaways split but the band continues to mean something to people. Movies including Victory’s documentary have been made and books are coming out. The story continues to be told but in a sense it’s still being written. Will the Runaways story continue to live on?
Lita: "I hope so. I really hope it’s told correctly too and maybe it will be up to me to see that it’s told correctly, I don’t know. I’ve been in the process now of trying to regroup the girls. I got on the phone with Cherie Currie who I hadn’t spoken with for a long, long time prior to this. Joan Jett actually put me in touch with Cherie and gave me her contact information and email and all that. I sent out an email to Cherie and she was very happy to hear from me and we had dinner together which was really nice. Then my manager reached out to Joan’s manager and Joan and I had dinner together in New York City and that was also really nice. So, to be honest, I’m trying to reach out to everybody but unfortunately Sandy West (drummer) is not with us any more. I just think if we got a really kick ass rhythm section we would be okay with just me, Joan and Cherie if we can get Joan to commit to it at some point. I know she’s busy and I’m super busy right now with this record but hopefully by the time this is done and I’m ready to move on to the next project the other girls will be ready as well."
