Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale Wants to Form a Modern-Day Version of the Runaways

Halestorm

Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale fronts one of the most ambitious touring bands out there, Halestorm. While her “day job” keeps her plenty busy, she can’t help but daydream about forming a female-heavy supergroup of sorts with her friends in the industry: Australian guitarist Orianthi, Sick Puppies bass player Emma Anzai and Jen Ledger and Korey Cooper from Skillet. In fact, she thinks the group could be a modern-day version of the Runaways. How sweet is that idea?

“It’s funny, we secretly talk about it when we hang out,” she told the Saginaw News. “But the truth is that here we are, women in rock, and most of our influences come from our parents’ generation.”

While being a female in the entertainment industry hasn’t always meant leaning on one’s talent, Hale insists the business has changed for the better. “Actually, as a band, we were just talking about this the other day,” Hale said. “There are so many of us out there, talented women making it in the business. We’re breaking the rules in a business that hasn’t had any real rules before.

“You can put a short skirt on anybody and go for cute, but this is a nice, refreshing trend. They inspire me to do better.”
