Despite our report yesterday that Joan Jett didn’t want to reunite the Runaways, two members of the band, Lita Ford and Cherie Currie, are coming together to record a Christmas track.
Ford told PsychoBabbleTV.com via Classic Rock Magazine that having Currie on the track was fateful.
“My old drummer called me and says, ‘Lita, let’s record a Christmas song.’ So I thought, ‘What do you want to do – Jingle Bells?’ He said, ‘No, let’s write something new,’ said Ford. “I got out a pen and paper and I thought, ‘Let’s rock this Christmas down.’ So we started writing a song called Let’s Rock This Christmas Down”
“It just so happened that Cherie was on the phone just after we’d talked about recording this song,” continued Ford. “I said, ‘Why don’t you sing it with me?’ So she flew in, came straight from the airport to the studio, cut the vocal track – and we have a Christmas single with me and Cherie singing lead vocals.”
We know what we want in our stockings this year.
