Yeah, I don't really see what's wrong with it, it's certainly not on the same level of awful as say Sabbath's Born Again.

At least that was real art, not something a 4-year-old whipped up in Photoshop 1.0. Laughing

Didn't seem much like "real art", the guy who drew that cover said it was the worst thing he ever created.

I thought the album artwork for the latest was good, I also dug it I felt there was some good songwriting and some catchy hooks.

Favorite songs are

Hate
Mother

Nothing against Lita Ford but Joan Jett will always by my favorite Runaway. And her latest album just cements that for me.

Same here Im hoping to be able to see her live since she's touring in support of her new album. Speaking of The Runaways I am also hoping to see Cherie Currie in November all depends on the money there...

Is this the new cover you guys were discussing? I kinda like it.

They should have made the pink guitar red though.

When I saw her live she mentioned about a live album and a Autobiography that was supposed to be out this past summer it was going to be the same title as her last album

I think the live album cover is ok I dont hate it but dont love it either. Its the music inside that counts

You want some dirt? Here you go...

Quote :
Ford writes about her lengthy allegedly abusive relationship with Tony Iommi, which started after she got to open for BLACK SABBATH. "He seemed so charming, confident and handsome," she writes. "I would later find out that looks are deceiving."

Ford's relationship with Iommi allegedly began with a failed attempt at sex as he was "too high" on cocaine. "He was impotent from his constant drug use, and he was very embarrassed. I felt bad for him and didn't really know what to do. Eventually, I got him off," she explains in the book.

As the relationship progressed, Iommi invited Ford to England to meet his "mum." On the flight to England, she writes, Iommi "out of nowhere… hauled off and punched me in the eye."

Although she planned to fly right back to Los Angeles when they landed, she decided to stay, she writes, "like a moron," after Iommi acted like nothing had happened.

Ford claims she later learned that domestic violence ran in Iommi's family, alleging that Tony's father also engaged in abusive behavior.

Lita claims that Iommi physically abused her four or five times during their relationship and describes one particularly scary episode that occurred shortly after the couple got engaged.

"After snorting tons of blow, he got angry and choked me unconscious," she writes. "When I woke up, I saw him holding a chair above my head. It was a big, heavy leather chair with studs around the arms, and he was about to smash it over my face. I rolled over, and luckily I moved fast enough that he missed me and the chair smashed into the ground."

Ford eventually broke up with Iommi, who, she claims, went on to hire her band to work with him instead behind her back.

I don't like to think of Tony that way either, but there must be some truth to it, otherwise she could face a heckuva lawsuit for slander if she's just making up stuff for publicity.

You know what they say. Cocaine's a helluva drug.

This New York Post article is like the CliffsNote version of Lita's new book...

How much more do I need to know?

(shrugs) I'd give Lita's book a look if it turned up at my library, but I doubt I'm gonna go out of my way to buy it.

She lost custody of her children. It's exceptionally rare for a mother to lose custody of her children in custody cases. It's not unheard of, but the courts are loathe to do that. When they do decide against the mother, it's often for cases where the mother is an unfit parent.

In an interview with Metal Sludge, Gillette broke his silence on the situation, saying, "Unlike Lita, I don't believe it's right to say bad things about a child's parent publicly or in private. I think divorce is hard enough on kids and they certainly don't need to be hurt or embarrassed by an irrational parent who has an agenda. That said, I suppose I could finally shed a little light on the subject without being too harsh.

"First of all and for the record, I have sole legal and physical custody of our sons. Unfortunately, it goes much further than that. As heartbreaking and unbelievable as this might sound, Lita Ford is not even allowed to see our sons by way of an agreed-upon court order. This order was signed after nearly two years of litigation, during which time the courts only allowed her supervised visitation.”

He continued: "Everything is legal about the boys being with me, and all of Lita's self-serving claims and slanderous allegations are completely and 100% ludicrous. Quite frankly, all of this is more than a little frightening for our family.

"Our sons have urged me for years to tell the world our side of the story but this is all I'm prepared to share at this point in time."

When a judge thinks this man is the better parent...


You must have some real issues.
