Lita Ford Announces New Bassist

Lita Ford has recruited Marten Andersson as her new bassist. He will be replacing Marty O’Brien, who recently joined Daughtry.

Ford commented:

“Marten brings to the stage a sound and high-energy dynamic style of bass guitar playing like a freight train hauling thunder through a hurricane.”

Andersson continued:

“For those of you who haven’t heard, Yessss I have indeed joined the Lita Ford band. I am super excited to join these awesome musicians and kind souls: Lita Ford, Patrick Kennison, Bobby Rock, and the great team around them. Can’t wait for the upcoming tour dates and to get out and rock!

My special thanks to my dear friend and long time Lita bass player Marty O’Brien for making this transition so easy and smooth. Good luck in Daughtry brother. I will of course miss my Steelheart bros (and all you Steeles out there) but I am planning to stay in your lives and I know Steelheart will continue to slay without me and be better then ever.”

O’Brien added:

“Welcome to the Lita Ford family; Marten Andersson on the bass! Not only a fantastic bass player, but also a great guy and a dear friend of mine! #MartenRules.”
