Lzzy Halestorm has become a pinup seemingly overnight. Revolver magazine even declared her one of the "hottest chicks in metal." Though she's drop-dead gorgeous, objectifying female rock musicians is l-a-m-e. But it's particularly damaging when it overshadows the music; just ask the great Lita Ford, whose killer guitar skills have always taken a backseat to all the skimpy leather. Fans of hard rock would be making a similar mistake if they were to ignore Lzzy the powerful frontwoman, major-league howler and shredder. Founded by Lzzy and her drumming sibling Arejay in the late 1990s, Halestorm quickly made a name for themselves gigging around south central Pennsylvania. In 2005, the group signed with Atlantic Records on the strength of an independently released live EP titled One and Done. Though the group has shared stages with a who's who of post-grunge alternative-metal acts, including Shinedown, Trapt and Chevelle, they specialize in a tough-as-nails brand of pop metal that ultimately owes more to Motley Crue and even Heart than Staind and Creed. Halestorm released their self-titled major-label debut in 2009. The lead single was the provocatively named "I Get Off."
