Leiana Covers Lita Ford Song With Help From Anthrax, White Zombie Members
"Lita Ford was one of the few female rockers that combined a total package for me," Leiana told Noisecreep. "She is talented, beautiful and had no problem holding her own in the very male-dominated metal rock world. She was cool, strong and tough, which made a huge impression on me." Miss Ford's '80s ballad with Ozzy Osbourne, 'Close My Eyes Forever,' was another prime example of how she was able to stand shoulder to shoulder with metal gods.
Leiana also said, "'Kiss me Deadly' was a tune that I always wanted to hear done a bit harder and edgy, and I think with this remake, we accomplished that." The cover is loyal; the ante is just upped a bit. Nice job to Leiana, Caggiano and Tempesta for their rendition of a glam metal classic.
Leiana's 'Lucky #3' is due out May 18. Meanwhile, 'The Runaways,' the movie based on Lita Ford's teenaged jailbait band with Joan Jett and Cheri Curie, featuring Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning in those respective roles, is due out this spring, as well.
