Guitarists LITA FORD and JENNIFER BATTEN  join Mitch for episode 209 of One On One With Mitch Lafon. 
 
In the show's first interview, LITA FORD discusses her new album TIME CAPSULE, Gene Simmons, BLACK SABBATH's Tony Iommi, and more.
 
Quote from the LITA FORD interview:
 
Discussion about Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi starts at the 12.22 mark.
 
TONY IOMMI (time 12.37): "We called him and gave him the opportunity to respond and he didn't. He chose not to call me back."
 
(12.50) "Was I scared to write it? No, people are abused. I was devastated to find out that my hero was one of them. I was sick over it. That's not what superheroes are supposed to be like."
 
(13.57) - "He hurt me in many ways. He almost killed me. Sorry, it was Tony Iommi." 
 
(14.35) - "Can I look back at him and say, 'He's a great guitar player? He's the Riff Master.  Do I love Black Sabbath?' Yes, of course. He is the riff master. I loved Black Sabbath and still do. You've got to separate the music from the personal life."
 
New album TIME CAPSULE (time 1.08) : "It's a collection of songs, I've had through the '80s and they're great songs."

Quotes from the JENNIFER BATTEN interview:
 
(time 37.24) - "I've never been over-rehearsed. Every time you go through a song, it's an opportunity to make it better."

LITA FORD Unlocks 'Time Capsule' April 15

Artist: 
Friday, April 15, 2016

feat. Gene Simmons, Billy Sheehan, Jeff Scott Soto, Dave Navarro & Rick Nielsen
 
American vocalist/guitarist Lita Ford is set to release her latest album Time Capsule on Steamhammer/SPV on 15 April 2016.
 
The very special and unusual recording turns back the clock to a time when honest, down-to-earth rock music was still handmade and recorded without digital tricks and contraptions. Time Capsule is a ”throwback” record that boasts identifiable voices and brilliant players jamming without any planning or pressure. Some of the album`s highlights: Billy Sheehan (bass), Rodger Carter (drums), Dave Navarro (mandolin), Jeff Scott Soto (vocals), Rick Nielsen and Robin Zander (backing vocals) and Gene Simmons (bass).
 
“There was a shitload of these 24-track analog tapes in the closet in my house (in the islands),” Ford recalls. “This is some of the best work I`ve ever done and it was sitting there. I grabbed two suitcases and took them back to the United States.” Imagine Ford dragging a pair of suitcases full of analog tapes through the Caribbean dirt back to Los Angeles, so, as she recalls, “we could bake these fuckers,” due to their age. “If you just put them on the reel, they would flake. I was chewing my fingernails, thinking, ´Please work!` And they did!”
 
Time Capsule contains ten songs plus intro and will be available as a digipak as well as an LP version and download. It`s Ford`s gift to fans who love the ´80s, when thrilling vocal performances, raunchy riffs, and loud, growling guitars were as essential as oxygen.
 
Tracklisting:

1. Intro 1:35
2. Where Will I Find My Heart Tonight 04:47
3. Killing Kind 04:49
4. War Of The Angels 05:44
5. Black Leather Heart 03:33
6. Rotten To The Core 04:21
7. Little Wing 03:01
8. On The Fast Track 03:41
9. King Of The Wild Wind 05:04
10. Mr. Corruption 04:15
11. Anything For The Thrill 03:25

Quotes from the interview:

Sharon Osbourne: "I loved Sharon. I didn't want to let her go, but at the same time there were some things going on that were really destroying my career."

More Sharon: "She's one of 'those' that forever holds a grudge. She's not one of 'those' kinds of people that forgives and forgets.'

Her book: "I pretty much made it about Sex, Drugs and Rock N' Roll."

The Runaways: "It really was KIM FOLEY's band. He was running the show. When he left things slowly started falling apart."

More about The Runaways: "Had we have had our own television show like Hanna Montana then maybe we would have been able to fill arenas."

Her kids: "I don't get to see them anymore. I don't know where they are and I haven't spoken to them since 2010."

This episode is co-hosted by BRITNY FOX & DORO drummer, Johnny Dee. Johnny also gives an updateon the Britny Fox reunion and new album.
