OH MY FUCKING GOD, YOU GUYS ARE COMING TO PORTUGAL!!!!! Lzzy I wanna see Mz. Hyde. Keep rockin
even though this week I'm moving to Nashville this is a true story about a month ago Clapton held 2 concerts at Madison Square Garden and being that the NY music community is pissed about the way my career had to end an old friend came up to me because I cannot sit because of a very bad sciatic night and even 1/4 of Johnny Walker Blue taken with 3200mg of perk( ha ha Whitney) back in 1980 I practiced in Georgio Gomelsky's lofth on 24th street and 7 ave an associate of Georgio found me ( ya can't miss me I wear more wires than Donnie Brasco) I went to the soundguy who recongonized me and if any of you were there on Fridays show the soundguy played Halestorm and usually at a rock concert when the average age is AARP people they came up to the sound guy and wanted to know what band was that. so the next time you play NYC you CAN PACK THE GARDEN but there's a catch. the owner wants all concerts to end at 11pm and that goes for the Beacon (except when the Allmans play 20 shows every March) but this is your time and I would fly back to NY to see that. If not please headline the Sagebrush arena in TN. Because on or off morphine this is the best fuckin' band I've ever seen in 40 years. Have a safe tour and when you play Club 29 gimme a pass to meet you I promise not to fry you all when we hug. I will turn the tens off and bite the bullet, but for Lizzy they is nothing in the world I would for this band and next year when Fallon takes over the Tonight show Questlove will be in touch,he owes me big 30 years ago I worked for Vivid Video and "nuff said, Happy mothers day Robbie
Hey Lzzy I'm Ryan I just saw you guys in Toronto at Sound Acadamy and i just want to say you guys were AMAZING
Thank You and Keep On Rocking!!!!!!
Brian here, saw you in Dayton OH at Mcguffys HOD, then met you at NAMM in 2012, then at Bogarts Cincinnati Sep 2012, see you at ROTR Columbus! I listen to Strange Case of....every day! you guys rock!

~Elise in MT<3
My first LIVE Halestorm gig tonight Lzzy, Roseland:NYC (2013.Apr.30). Sorry it took so long, but as a fan ... I'm worth your wait! Catch me front row G/A Pit, METAL-1! Rock on Grammy Goddess! Erik in CT
You and the the boys rocked the Warfield in SF last night. A brilliant show, (as always). Congratulations on your well deserved grammy and for proving that women can rock just as hard, if not harder, as any of the male lead rock bands out there. I took my 14 1/2 year old Nikki Minaj loving daughter with me last night, and needless to say you rocked her world, and now have a new lifelong fan. She can't stop talking about how awesome you & Halestorm's music are. Thank you for converting her :) Also, thank you so much for giving girls, like, Sydney, inspiration and proving that a woman can be beautiful while conquering "the boys club", kicking their asses and taking names! We're so thrilled you and the boys like the poster we threw on stage last night. A little tattered, but the sentiments come from our hearts. Sydney and I are truly thankful for the brilliant music you & Halestorm share with us. I wish you and Halestorm all the best and truly believe you guys will be around for a very long time. Stay true to you and Halestorm's raw, riveting lyrics & music. You and the boys are an exceptional band that stands out and above all the others. Take care, Alison
Thanks Lzzy! I took my 16 year old daughter to see Halestorm and Bullet in Denver. She's now restringing her dust-covered guitar and reloading her ipod after you've saved her from the eternal damnation of Ke$ha fandom.
Hello Lzzy, Im a brazilian wheelchair fan, Im Scott Hairrox´s friend. I´ll certainly go to the concert, but i hope to meet u and take a pic with u. Simply love u and the band, love the way u sing, with passion, anger, feeling every word, every note. Hope to meet u soon. kisses from Brazil.
Would be great if this is the pic I'm getting in the mail, t-shirt for the fan club promo?B-)
When us the meet and greet for the Denver show at the Filmore Auditorium? Is it going to be before the concert or after? What time? You Rock Lzzy!
Lzzy, I am a huge fan of metal and an even bigger fan of bands who aren't afraid to front a woman. I grew to enjoy music from Evanescence, Paramore, Laguna Coil, Nightwish, and many more. Nightwish has been my favorite of all of them since the arrival of Anette Olzen (who sadly is no longer a member as of last year). One of the most amazing things in todays rock ,I believe, is how much women have evolved vocally in this genre. I have witnessed shocker after shocker, time and time again. I first heard your song Mz. Hyde today and I'll admit I thought at first "Nice but I was hoping for a little more" ...then came the chorus. Instant fan. I have never in my entire life dreamed that a woman could ever develop such powerful pipes. You are such a rarity. A rare gem. I don't know how you managed to pull that song off like you did but rest assured I will be listening to many more of Halestorm's songs. Obviously my opinion alone doesn't really amount to much...but just read these comments from other fans. You and the group have an excellent thing going and I never thought I would say this but...in the race of rock groups with female vocalists,...It comes down to Halestorm and Nightwish for me...and Halestorm wins...easily. Thanks for giving me a new group to look forward to since Nightwish just can't seem to keep a decent vocalist. I may never look back!
thank you very much for coming to Argentina ... we love you ..
hilzzy its me again u know the one who has watch u since eagles peak. i am still looking for a autogragphed pic of u and the band but since u have not sent me one i wonder if u will be selling them at the york fair can u let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. i was thinking of making a copy of the concert u did at eagles peak right after u got signed for u to look at maybe i will have it at the york fair. please let me know at that email it goes rightto my phone. please lzzy and congrates on the grammy i told u that album was going to be big albumn i thought misery would be that top song but love bites was real good too. please let me know at my email about the york fair please lzzy
I love you Lzzy! Your music is amazing, your my hero!I would love too meet you and the band, i wanted to meet you's in Glasgow but sadly i never got too! :( Hopefully i will get the chance in the future! Keep on rocking Mz. Hyde, your awesome! :) <3

Love Strange Case of... I've been listening to it nonstop at work. Hope you guys will come to Saint Louis soon, in a better venue than a festival show. I also wanted to say that it means a lot to have someone use the label "freak" as a good thing. Thanks for the inspiration and great music.

Saw you in Minneapolis back in December, show was one of the best I've seen in quite some time. I'm looking forward seeing the Halestorm show in Nashville with a few friends that are flying in from the West Cost to see you for the first time! I figure Halestorm will be playing Area Tours soon so I am stoked for another small venue show.
Hello, LZZY I wanted to thank you for coming to the Mohegan Sun Dec 28 2012 ..I was one of the lucky ones to get in and see you again ...and get one of AJ Drum Sticks Awsome !!!!! I also want to ask yo if you would do a cover song on VIXEN first LP track 1 is very good and Track 8 would make a awsome song for Halestorm New CD ....I hope you read this and hope to see you Back in CT. Soon ...Love Ya John Miller
I haven't a clue whether you'll read this at all, but I want to tell you that you are the most beautiful and inspiring women in rock. You've given me no end of inspiration and I know that seeing you guys in March will be one of the best nights of my life. Thanks for inspiring me to stay strong through hard times. Keep rocking, freak!
I was at the Wellmont NJ show on Sat. and all I can say WOW! Not only were you great, it's obvious just how much you really love doing this and how you communicate with the fans during the show is refreshing as we get to see how real you are. Every so often I discover a band that becomes a part of me and Halestorm has done just that! Can't wait to see you guys back in Jersey!! Be routing for a Halestorm Grammy win on Feb. 10th, Good Luck as you guys deserve it! Happy New Year!
Just wanted to say that.... YOU KICKED ASS!!!!!!!!!! Loved thew show that you put on at the Electric Factory and wanted to say that you guys inspired me to pick my bass back up and also try other instruments like the drums. Love you guys. Oh and I wanted to say that your beautiful voice goes great with your gorgeous looks. Thanks again for putting on such an AWESOME show.

Lzzy, I had the complete honor to see you guys in SLC, Utah back in July and I just have to tell you that that's the best rock show I've ever been to! When you guys played Rock Show I literally cried! That song is exactly how concerts are for me! Thank you so much for the inspiration!
WOW! To be honest I haven't heard about Halestorm for the LONGEST times you guys have been out! And I LOVE MUSIC! It is literally my life. My best friend played a song and I am like OMG WHO is this?? He told me it's halestorm.. first song I heard.... I MISS THE MISERY!!! I was like... HOLY SHIT... this is the greatest band I have EVER HEARD!! I mean I followed within temptation and evanescence for awhile and paramore... but ever since I heard you sing and this band, I have been stuck ever since!!! I can never get enough!! You guys are there when I need to escape, and your music and your voice sets me in the best mood ever!! I can also sometimes relate to the lyrics, especially love bites so do I, and it's not you! I can't wait to see you guys in concert! Whenever times you guys come to philaldelphia, you better believe I will be at EVERY single concert rocking out!!! STAY AMAZING!!!! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!! You guys rock!!! You guys have hit my heart and all the way to the core and guess what... You're there permanently to stay!!!! And now, can't live without you guys!!!! <3

That is all <3
I discovered your music about three weeks ago and I absolutely love just about every song. Personal favorites: I Get Off and Freak Like Me. I love those songs. But you are really pretty and sexy and you put a lot into your music.
If you ever decide to turn gay, please let me know.
LOVE you! Can't wait to meet you in March <3

I am a huge Hailstorm fan and i was wondering if you could play a show in my city before I leave for the military. I live in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada and I have fallen in love with Halestorm.

Curiousity question: Lzzy are you single?
Not usually into modern rock but i really like what I've heard of Halestorm and will be buying the album at the weekend. Please come and do a tour of the UK!!! I promise to play it loud around Manchester Met university where I study. Have an awesome summer and keep rocking!!!
Good to see a strong female role model too!!!
I am coming to see you on 4/30 in Phila. and was wondering if you would have time to say "hi". You played at my bar in Sinking Spring, Pa. the bar was called Knuckleheadz. Of course that was awhile ago - your Dad was in the band then. I am glad you are doing so well .. I thought you were an awesome band then and enjoy listening to you on the radio now!
Lizzy... my friend and I are going to be at your concert on Thursday in VA.. we saw you guys play in Maryland last September and ya'll were awesome!! One of the best live bands we have ever heard!!! We got a picture with you then and were wondering if we could get you guys to sign it??
lzzzzyyyyyyy is there a way to get a poster or shirt signed for the buddy who turned me on to u guys? his b-day is coming up soon!!
Love Halestorm, you guys have stepped up modern rock and i love it. I can't wait to see you guys live soon. As soon as i started playing giutar last year, I immediately learned most (key word most;) of I Get Off. I wish I was as good as you but i imagine that will take awhile.;) Keep rockin hard, love you guys. LOL
I'm not going to try and pretend to know you personally and call you by your first name so i guess Ms. Hale would be more appropriate. Halestorm and Shinedown are my favorite two bands, I play myself and can sing but would like a more professional opinion. If you ever have time I'd be very happy to have a chat with ya. I'm a PA native too so...proud to have you guys from our state
Hey Lzzy you have an amzing Voice! I saw you perform with Shinedown in april of '08. I still have the poster you signed seeming it was my first concert. ( which by the way kicked ass because you guys were playing with shinedown) I can't wait until you come back to CT i will definitely be there! Keep rockin!
Lzzy you are a hottie :) love that sultry voice, and those legs are pretty nice too *wink wink* am really enjoying It's Not You, and Familiar Taste of Poison. those songs rock but have a touch of emotion too. Looking forward to seeing your show at 1 st Ave Live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa next month. That's a rather intimate venue........would love to have a drink after the show.
Hey Lzzy, can't stop listening to your song Walk All Over Me, it's sooooooo good. I can't understand all the lyrics though, could you please post them. You totally need to put that back in your set, it kicks ass and I've love to see it live.
hey Lzzy thx for the great interview. if you want to see the result check www.mindview.be for a nice coverstory
Hey Lzzy :-)
Was so nice seeing you in Leeds and London. Nic hearing the story of Dont you wish you had me back, kinda means more when I hear it now LOL

Hey, just wanted to see how you and the band were doing! met you guys in Amsterdam at the Melkweg if you remember. anyway you guys were very impressive, and I am enjoying your CD, its very passionate. When you all planning on comming back to Europe?? the sooner the better, and if you've got time after a show maybe get you a drink!
Hey LZZY, I just bought the Halestorm CD from walmart today on impulse and I must say I am glad I did! I think you have a wonderful voice, you sing very well and the bands just rocks! I can't wait to see what you guys can really produce, looking forward to bigger and better things for you guys!
Hey Lzzy. You and your band is a breath of fresh air for me. I love Metal - Rock and long live this music. You have great vocals and every song is A+++ keep rocking and if you get the chance to set up a date for Indiana anywhere I will be there!! I actually broke out the Les Paul after a year and started playing again. Thanks!!!
Hey Lzzy. Just wanted to say that I absolutely LOVE your voice! Love your CD! Love your band! And I can't wait to say that I love your live show too...soon. I look forward to many years of great music from you. Rock on ;)
Mike from NJ
I can't wait to see you guys on Friday in London!!
Ok Lzzy I know you are busy but one qestions has been bugging me and I can't find the answer you are the only one who can tell me and the question is
Are you still religious?? Like you said before you preformed "As The Eagle Flies"at The Cornerstorn Cafe in 1997 Jesus Christ will come back down and take you with him. Some people don't think you are and some think you are,I am really wondering and if you have time please respond and tell me if you are. You are a strong woman and don't forget that.
Hey Lzzy, u were amazing at the wolvo gig tonight, i was just approaching you for an autograph after Theory of a deadman finished then everyone got sent out so i didnt get a chance, you guys are totally wort another see at gig, cant wait til u next play wolvo..all best...Mitch
I hope Europe is treating you well :) Can't wait to meet you guys when you bring the ROCK to Wisconsin next month! Still considering making a road trip to your 5/2 show at Mohegan Sun...would be a 17 hour trip but it'd be one hell of a birthday for me :) Take care, rock on!
Lzzy your music moves me. I enjoy finding the meanings behind the words. I hope someday you can give all your fans a glimpse as to exactly where you came up with these wonderful lyrics. I am looking forward to listening to your music in the gym..Good motivation!
