Lita Ford & Joan Jett Call Time on Long-standing Feud
In what may be the first steps towards a Runaways reunion, Lita Ford has revealed that she and Joan Jett recently met for the first time since the breakup of the Runaways.
In an interview with Rolling Stone (via UltimateClassicRock) Ford said:
"I asked my manager Bobby [Collin] if he'd put in a call to Kenny [Laguna], Joan's manager, and try to arrange a dinner for us…We had a nice dinner - it was real friendly, like seeing your sister. We talked about old times and Joan gave me Cherie Currie's contact information. When I was on the West Coast, I had dinner with Cherie."
But what does this mean with regards to a possible reunion:
"I talked to [Cherie] about a reunion, and I talked to Joan about a reunion," she continued. "I couldn't really get a solid answer from [Joan]. But I just wanted her to know that I'm here for her, and if she decides she wants to put together the Runaways again, I would be in 100 percent."
Lita Ford released her solo album, 'Living Like a Runaway,' yesterday (19th June) and the British-born guitarist will hit the road today (20th June) on tour with Def Leppard & Poison.
