Possible Runaways Reunion on the Cards?

Possible Runaways Reunion on the Cards? -

All American-girl rockers The Runaways could be on course for a potential reunion, according to guitarist Lita Ford - who's currently preparing to release her new solo album, 'Living Like a Runaway.'

Over the recent months surviving members Ford, Joan Jett and Cherie Currie  have put previous ill feelings to bed after years of non-communication.

In an interview with Metal Underground, Ford said,

"I would if it was the Runaways.  There's all kinds of lineups you can have and all kinds of wonderful musicians. Unfortunately Sandy's not around anymore, the drummer, and she was such a huge part of the band. I don't know if Joan Jett would do the band without Sandy. I would, I love Sandy and nobody will ever take her place, but there's still me and Joan and Cherie. The Runaways had a couple of bass players and they were both great. I would love to do the Runaways again, maybe next year, 2013 would be a good time."

Ford's new album, 'Living Like a Runaway' will be released on 18th June (12). The British born guitarist will also be touring North America this month with Def Leppard and Poison. 

Don't forget we was lucky enough to catch up with Lita Ford along with Gary Hoey at NAMM 2012 to discuss her new album. Check out our exclusive interview below which features in Issue 7 of iGuitarMag.
