Lita Ford’s Memoir – Living Like A Runaway


Lita Ford has lived a long life in music and met many great musicians as well as being one. She’s got some stories to tell including getting crabs from Dee Dee Ramone and seeing Nikki Sixx wearing shoes two sizes too small for him because they were great shoes. A positive theme in the book is her parents’ unfailing love and support. I couldn’t help but wonder why Lita didn’t walk away from some situations she found herself in. Be ready to lose respect for Tony Iommi when you read Lita’s account of his violence towards her. When writing about meeting Tony Iommi she says “I could smell the leather coming from his closet”, this is a very heavy metal sentence and there are plenty more in the book.
