Review:

"One of the greatest female electric guitar players to ever pick up the instrument."--Elle

From the Publisher:

The legendary former lead guitarist of The Runaways--"heavy metal's leading female rocker" (Rolling Stone)--opens up about the '70s and '80s music scene and her extraordinary life and career in this long-awaited, emotionally powerful memoir.Lita Ford lived her dreams, until her life turned into a nightmare. She left home at age sixteen to join the world's first all-female rock group, the Runaways--a band whose legend was sealed by the 2010 hit movie starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning--and went on to become the first woman hard rock guitarist, a platinum-selling star who gave Ozzy Osbourne his first Top Ten hit, a bare-ass, leather-clad sexy babe whose hair was bigger and guitar licks were hotter than any of the guys. She is also the mother of two sons whose harrowing tale of her catastrophic marriage to a metal rocker makes Ike and Tina Turner sound like life at the country club.But in the end, Lita's story changes from a music story to a woman's story--a wrenching, desperate drama of human bondage and a mother's love, a life-and-death struggle over her own soul. Trapped in an increasingly terrifying marriage, systematically stripped of her connections to the outside world, Lita Ford became a prisoner in her own life, a slave to her husband's demands, living like a captive. She plotted her escape and her freedom cost her the boys she stayed in the marriage to protect. Her graphic, explicit story will terrify and horrify readers, but they won't be able to put it down.Living Like a Runaway will shock people with the candor that Lita Ford shines on her dramatic life story. At ease as a woman in the previously all-male world of rock, Lita shares with her male counterparts an unvarnished directness when it comes to topics such as sex, drugs, money or fame. No female rock star of Lita's stature has ever before told the real story of women in rock. With unprecedented rawness and honesty, Living Like a Runaway reminds us that Lita Ford is not only one of music's greatest pioneers, but also one of its fiercest survivors.

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2016. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. THE FEARLESS .VIVID .FAST-PACED .AND INSPIRING * NATIONAL BESTSELLER (*ROLLING STONE) Heavy metal s leading female rocker (Rolling Stone) bares all, opening up about the Runaways, the glory days of the punk and hard-rock scenes, and the highs and lows of her trailblazing career Wielding her signature black guitar, Lita Ford shredded stereotypes of female musicians throughout the 1970s and 80s. Then followed more than a decade of silence and darkness-until rock and roll repaid the debt it owed this pioneer, helped Lita reclaim her soul, and restored the Queen of Metal to her throne. In 1975, Lita Ford left home at age sixteen to join the world s first major all-female rock group, the Runaways-a pioneering band (New York Times) that became the subject of a Hollywood movie starring Kristen Stewart ad Dakota Fanning. Lita went on to become heavy rock s first female guitar hero (Washington Post), a platinum-selling solo star who shared the bill with the Ramones, Van Halen, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Poison, and others and who gave Ozzy Osbourne his first Top 10 hit. She was a bare-ass, leather-clad babe whose hair was bigger and whose guitar licks were hotter than any of the guys . Hailed by Elle as one of the greatest female electric guitar players to ever pick up the instrument, Lita spurred the meteoric rise of Joan Jett, Cherie Currie, and the rest of the Runaways. Her phenomenal talent on the fret board also carried her to tremendous individual success after the group s 1979 disbandment, when she established herself as a legendary metal icon (Guitar World) and a fixture of the 1980s music scene who held her own after hours with Nikki Sixx, Jon Bon Jovi, Eddie Van Halen, Tommy Lee, Motorhead s Lemmy, Black Sabbath s Tony Iommi (to whom she was engaged), and others. Featuring a foreword by Dee Snider, Living Like a Runaway also provides never-before-told details of Lita s dramatic personal story. For Lita, life as a woman in the male-dominated rock scene was never easy, a constant battle with the music establishment. But then, at a low point in her career, came a tumultuous marriage that left her feeling trapped, isolated from the rock-and-roll scene for more than a decade, and-most tragically-alienated from her two sons. And yet, after a dramatic and emotional personal odyssey, Lita picked up her guitar and stormed back to the stage. As Guitar Player hailed in 2014 when they inducted her into their hall of fame of guitar greats: She is as badass as ever. Fearless, revealing, and compulsively readable, Lita Ford s Living Like a Runaway is the long-awaited memoir from one of rock s greatest pioneers-and fiercest survivors.
