Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale recently had a conversation with Metal Hammer. Hale clarifies lots of things from who was her idol to when was the first time she felt like a rock star.

Here is Hale’s answer to ‘feeling like a rock star’ question:

“After the first time I got to share the stage with Tom Keifer from Cinderella, we started hanging out, and I went to his house where I met his family. Everything was normal and nice. They were wonderful.

Then I left and I was like, ‘Wait a minute, I was just hanging out with my idol!’ Does that make me cool? Or is it just me fangirling? That was the first point where I could say, ‘I’ve come a long way.’

When you’re hanging out with the guy who’s literally responsible for you picking up a guitar, that’s a very special moment.”

Hale, also shares if she felt emberassed in front of one of her heroes:

“Yes, and this is another Tom Keifer story. He was sweet about it, and so was his wife, but I told his wife that when I was a teenager I wanted to marry him.

I heard the words come out of my mouth before thinking, ‘You are probably the one person I shouldn’t be telling this,’ so I tried to back-pedal. That was a pretty mortifying, facepalm moment.”
