  RUNAWAYS REUNION ON THE CARDS?
28th February 2012

runaways



Bad blood may finally be behind former Runaways members Cherie Currie and Lita Ford, at least according to a post made last week by Currie on her official Facebook page.

Former bandmate, Joan Jett, did the matchmaking, leading to the meeting between guitarist Ford and singer Currie that apparently went extremely well, so well that there was talk of "doing together again what we had done so well as kids."

Here's the full text of her post:

"Dreams do come true.

"I've had this reoccurring dream. It started about 25 years ago and in this dream I was sitting with a woman I had spent my teenaged years with, been through a lot with. We would talk, just 'be' and the dreams were so full of happiness, anticipation and this need to tell her what she meant to me... how proud I was of her and what we had done together. That I loved her.

"I had that very dream again three weeks ago only to awaken to the realization that again, it was only a dream.

"Three days ago I spoke to someone that knew this woman as I did back then and who had recently spent time with her after so many years.. I told this mutual friend how I wished I could have that opportunity and how much it would mean to me. She offered to reach out on my behalf and pass along what I had waited so long to say.

"The following day what felt like a miracle happened. I received an amazing email from this long lost friend I have dreamed of all these years and she was as happy to hear that I wanted to see her as I was that she would want to see me.

"Tonight, that dream came true. It was joyful, sometimes tearful, yet so exhilarating and full of love. Just the two of us, feeling like teenagers again but with the maturity that 30+ years can bring, what life, being mothers will bring.

"We talked about our kids, our lives and our dream of doing together again what we had done so well as kids.

"She is everything and more than I could have imagined and I get to see her (my friend) again tomorrow night, introduce her to my son, Jake and cheer her on.

"I no longer have to dream. I am now living that dream.

"I want to thank the mutual friend that brought us together, Joan Jett.

"And the long lost sister I have waited 30+ years for? Lita Ford.

"Yeah.. dreams DO come true.

"(Don't let anyone tell you it can't happen.)

"XO"

The fourth of the original members, drummer Sandy West, died from lung cancer in 2006. A total of five different bassists played with the group during its four years of existence.


WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
