Rock singer-songwriter and guitarist Lita Ford — head to toe in all-black leather, from vest to skin-tight pants to boots — rocked the intimate music venue Vinyl in the Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas on Friday night.

Ford, lead guitarist for The Runaways in the 1970s, is known for her hits “Kiss Me Deadly” and the duet “Close My Eyes Forever” with Ozzy Osbourne as a solo artist in the 1980s.

The video for “Kiss Me Deadly” played at nearby Ainsworth post-concert courtesy of DJ Mikey Swift and his 1970s- and ’80s-themed setlist and videos.

Thanks to Scott Harrison of Retna for his photo gallery of Ford, still rockin’ at age 55, at Vinyl.
