HALESTORM frontwoman Lzzy Hale was interviewed on the May 9 edition of “Whiplash”, the KLOS radio show hosted by Full Metal Jackie. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).
Full Metal Jackie: Lzzy, you started playing music as a kid and you formed HALESTORM as a young teenager. What non-musical things have helped keep you passionate and focused about music as you’ve grown and matured as a person?
Lzzy: “Oh, non-musical things? I guess people don’t really count, but the guys in my band, beyond being fellow musicians of mine, have really… I mean, we’ve gone through so much together, they’re kind of… They keep me anchored, because there’s this dichotomy that goes with me with everything, ’cause I’m relatively very focused, but then there’s another side of me that just wants to say, ‘Screw it,’ so on occasion, I get myself into trouble. So they’re really just been such an amazing road family for me. That and our crew; most of our crew has been working together for years and years. So we’re all kind of family. I just think that’s so important… it’s been such an important part of my family, let alone… definitely it’s a huge part of my career, obviously. I don’t know if I could really do it without them.”
