Lita Ford and her agent

By Aldo Panzieri
Lita Ford is a rock legend. Part of the first all female rock group, "The Runaways," Lita was part of the advance of all women in rock. Still a major rock star, Lita spent years away from the world to live on an island away from the high pressure world of music to raise a family. Now, back on stage, Lita is still a major force in heavy metal.

Looking back it seems funny to remember me photographing the queen of hard ass music. I was out of the military, still suffering the effects of post traumatic stress disorder, twitchy, stuttering, and completely without social skills. Lita took me for a ride in a black corvette that belonged to her then boy friend Nikki Six from Motley Crue . She wanted a picture of herself hitting a hundred miles an hour on Sunset Boulevard. I cringe when I think of myself stuttering and stammering my way through that photo session. In a few days, I'll be sending off a few prints off to Lita as well as a photo CD for her collection. I'm sending pictures to all the celebrities who are still around. I'm calling it the "Dirt Nap" collection.

Great portrait. I don't think she would she need the hammer shark for protection.
She looks beautiful and strong.
Great title!
