A rumor that Runaways singer Lita Ford is dead is burning its way around the Internet. Stories of a terrible jet ski accident have caught on like wildfire. Of course, people have desperately began searching to verify the news they have heard.
The good news is that Lita Ford is not dead. She is still rocking (and hot) at age 51. The rocker is even scheduled to perform at Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort in Mount Pleasant on August 27. Tesla and Whitesnake will play at the same concert.
Ford, along with Joan Jett were hot items with their band Runaways in the 1970s, which the movie The Runaways starring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning chronicled their success. In the film, Scout Taylor-Compton played Lita Ford, the band's lead guitarist.
Since her early fame with the band, Ford has become a sensation on her own. She will soon release a new album, which will further prove that she did not die in a jet ski accident. From the beginning, the guitarist worked to "prove to the fans that girls can play guitar." She certainly made her point these past four decades.
Will you be heading to see Ford and her long, blond hair tomorrow night? It sounds like the concert will rock.
