The best goddamn Lita Ford post , EVER!!!!!

You know I don't care what you think!......I have lusted after Lita Ford since I was a Goddamn teenager, and if I want to (1) write an easy post on Super Bowl Sunday and (2) get my meat stiff by posting some damn pictures of Lita Ford (owner of rock n roll's finest ass (runner-up: Sheryl Crow), I'll by-God sure as hell do it!

Hell you know the story.....the Runaways had total about an hour's worth of listenable material, yet remain one of my favorite bands for most obvious reasons...then, Mistress Lita has enjoyed a solo career with a similar amount of good stuff, and yet, I'd likely buy an album of her vomitting. I mean, if you don't get my point here, I kind of have a "thing" for Mistress Lita.

Her first solo LP, "Out For Blood", is pretty awful, but so fucking what, I enjoy funding Mistress' lifestyle.....her SECOND solo LP, "Dancin' On the Edge", is equally awful, but, so fucking what, I enjoy funding Mitstress' lifestyle.

OK. So in 1988 she released "Lita" and it is a pretty damn good one, actually......from the opener"Back to the Cave", the great "Can't Catch Me" (her greatest, IMO),  a sort of hit single "Kiss Me Deadly", and of course the infamous Ozzy duet,  "Close My Eyes Forever", well, this is a pretty Goddamn piece of hard-glitter rock really, and all joking aside, really the only decent one she had in her.

Because 1990's "Stilleto" sucks as well......while "Lita" is trashy greatness, what SHOULD have been her high mark is MERE trash.....geez a cover of "Only Women Bleed"? I've heard better, let us just say. "Dangerous Curves" doesn't fare a whole lot better, actually, although she earned a point or two for reprising the Runaways "Playing With Fire".

Surprisingly enough, 1996's "Black" is not NEARLY as bad as it ought to be......you'd be surprised. The title track and "Killin' Kind" are listenable shit, so you owe it to Mistress to pay homage. She also released a live album, kind of stupidly entitled "Greatest Hits Live" ("Hits", huh?), which fairly rocks out and at the very least gives another take on "Can't Catch Me" albiet an inferior one.

OK, a lot of this shit sucks, really, but I love Ms Ford anyway, and still as fucking FINE today when we are both in our 50's as when we were both teens. Somebody else might get a kick out of these, too, not to be taken seriously as though it were Gang of Four or something......not everything NEEDS to be though.
