FLASHBACK: Lita Ford Performs “Close My Eyes Forever” With Lzzy Hale

Lita Ford celebrates a birthday today (September 19th), and it goes without saying that Ford opened the door for a lot of female rockers since breaking out with The Runaways and with her success as a solo artist.

One of those women is Lzzy Hale, so when Ford opened for Halestorm on tour earlier this year, most of us crossed our fingers that there would be a few on-stage collaborations between the two, and fortunately, we weren’t disappointed.

In honor of Ford’s birthday, check out this awesome performance of “Close My Eyes Forever,” which Ford originally sang with Ozzy Osbourne, and who before launching into the track notes, “I’ve sang this song with so many people, but never a woman as great as Ms. Lzzy Hale [and] never a woman, period.”

What a cool live moment!
