The Gospel according to Lzzy Hale
Halestorm’s leader might be a role model, but she’s still got time for the wild life.
From tour bus pranks to drunken antics, it’s all here. Horns up!
I DIDN'T NAME MYSELF LZZY
"It came from a superfan of ours when I was about 17 years old. I used to go by Liz, and this superfan was obsessed with me and Ozzy Osbourne. There was this thing on the internet called 'shipping' [fans imagining celebrities in relationships]. She did that with me and Ozzy and started calling me Lzzy. She was leaving messages on our first webpage, and then all these girls who came to the site thought that's how I spelled my name, so they started dropping the vowels from their own names! I thought it was kinda cool and I didn't correct them. I don't think that superfan even realises; it's been, like, 15 years since I've seen her. Wherever you are, thank you."
WORKING WITH DAVID DRAIMAN WAS AWESOME
“He was super-involved. He really wanted to showcase who I was as equally as he was. We spent a lot of time on the song [Device’s cover of Ozzy Osbourne and Lita Ford’s Close My Eyes Forever], and he showed me this trick in the studio, where if you’re struggling to hit a high note, you put your arms over your head so your lungs can expand and they’re not put under any strain. He’s very committed to every project he does, which I thought was super- inspiring. He doesn’t half-ass anything.”
I NEVER THOUGHT MY BROTHER AREJAY WOULD OPEN UP TO ME
“But we’ve come to this really interesting place in the past couple of years where we’re really close. We’re able to talk about things and be really open with each other – not just about our relationship but talking about girls. It’s been really nice having those heart-to-hearts.”
