For a large part of the year Lita Ford has been touring, playing guitar and writing--tearing up stages from LA to Australia. Soon you’ll be able to sample her high-energy performances on The B**ch is Back…Live, a CD featuring classic as well as newer favorites.

On a warm, spring evening, I paid a visit to a pub in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, which had a courtyard right in front of it. It was there that I got to enjoy a live set by a female singer and guitarist who’s probably one of the more creative in terms of how she plays the guitar.
