Lita Ford

By Aldo Panzieri
Rock Goddess Lita Ford was in the first all girl band, the runaways. Decades have passed since then. Lita has been a solo act for years with only her husband who is her drummer.
As a card carrying geek I had no idea who she was when I shot these forty years ago. Lita was very young and on her own after the runaways broke up. I did my best work since Lita was a beautiful woman. I ended our photo in the passenger seat of a massively powered Corvette Stingray. Lita wanted a picture of herself doing a hundred miles an hour on Sunset boulevard. The only way I could get all of this action was to stick my butt out the window as Lita blew down the street at well over a hundred. As a card carrying geek I wasn't prepared for the notoriety I received having cruised Sunset with a rock Goddess. It was like Mister Bean meeting the Rolling Stones.

This is a lovely composition Aldo - I love the angle of the image, and although I was a little uncertain at first, I think the softness really contributes to the overall quality of the image.
