Rewind: Lita Ford: Still Living Like A Runaway

The Best Def Leppard Demos, Rarities, And Deep Tracks

Lita Ford kicked off Saturday evening with her blazing cover of Elton John's "The Bitch Is Back." Considering the interview Rocks Off did with her this past week (above), this was a very appropriate song for her to open her set.

Ford sounds and looks as great as she did in the '80s, and played two songs from her new album, Living Like a Runaway: "Relentless" and the title track. I must say, she was right with what she said in our interview -- those songs do translate well live. At the end of her set, Ford received a standing ovation. If Saturday night is any indication of her future, she is back and ready to roll.
