Happy Birthday to Lita Ford! Born in London, England on 19th September in 1958 as Carmelita Rossana Fordson, American singer, songwriter and guitarist Ford moved to the United States at the age of four. She is well known for both her time with the all-female rock band The Runaways (1975-1979), and her solo work since the 1980s.
The 'Today's Tune', Lita Ford's hit single "Close My Eyes Forever" (from 1988 album 'Lita'), was originally recorded in studio (1987) as a duet with Ozzy Osbourne.
Lita has been on tour this year, and is currently working on material for a new album.
