The legendary guitarist and singer Lita Ford talked about the Covid-19 pandemic in an interview with Kiki Classic Rock. She also gave her opinion on how everyone’s life will be after this.
“This virus thing is just weird. I think we’re just really lucky that it didn’t get worse than it did. It’s already bad enough, and a lot of people are out of so many jobs. And that’s the sickening part, I think, other than the deaths. But it could have been so much worse, and I think it’s on its way out now — hopefully.”
“I think we’re over the hump, and it’s on its way out. And a lot of it’s going to do with these different states, and if these different states open up and say, ‘Hey, we’re back in business,’ I don’t think it’s gonna be one of those situations where everybody just rushes to a rock concert.”
“We’re gonna have to sort of gear up again and work our way back up. I don’t think it’s gonna take too long. I think once they basically open the floodgates, I think we’re gonna be okay to get out and do some live performances.”
