Pioneering glam metal queen Lita Ford returns to action this fall with “Wicked Wonderland”, a disc slammed to the brim with loud and electrifying songs — songs that will make you fall in love with her all over again!
“Everybody has their own Wicked Wonderland,” adds Lita. “It’s a place where you can do whatever you want and get as freaky as you feel. These songs are my version of that – they’re all about my life…well, the parts that happen when the kids are in bed and my husband and I get into the boudoir.”
“This is definitely the heaviest stuff I’ve ever recorded,” Lita says. I’ve evolved and matured as a person and so has my music. It’s lyrically very real.”
“Wicked Wonderland” was mainly recorded at the island home she and husband Jim Gillette share with their two boys.
“We recorded all the vocals and lead guitars at home with Jim engineering and I wouldn’t have been near as comfortable recording with anyone else,” says Lita. “Jim and I are soul mates and we’re just about joined at the hip. It’s almost like the stuff they say about twins — we’re always finishing each others sentences and doing the same things musically. There were times when I’d listen back to a song and be like ‘which one of us is that anyway?’”
The legendary rocker took some time out recently to write this blog to her fans:
Just arrived in Greece.
Have show here on Tuesday.
Played last night in Italy.
Italy has a very special place in my heart.
My mom is from Rome.
Awesome show – the audience was amazing!
Just wanted to say that family RULES!
My Big Daddy takes such good care of me!
Our boys are everything a mom and dad could ever hope for.
I hope and prey all of you are as blessed.
Love with all your heart.
Live like there’s no tomorrow – for some there won’t be.
Ford is also slated to hit the stage at the Legendary Buffalo Chip, Sturgis South Dakota on August 3rd, 2009, supporting country star Toby Keith.
