I'm not sure where you're getting your clues... Possible scenarios, sure, but there's no evidence to support it. I'd think its unlikely since Valentine filed suit. Why would she open herself up if she was in the wrong?

possible it is pain killers and when people are strung out on opiates they NEVER think they have a problem of course they are gonna sue

I wondered that too, R7. Kathy's face has been pale and bloated in recent months. I always thought that was a sign of painkillers.

Oh. Well I can't help you there, R5. I just saw a comment from "Bitchlinda" in another thread about the Go-Go's thread being shut down and being all pissed off at the Webbie about it.
I searched and found the one thread that had reached maximum so I started a new one.
That's all I've got - other than the notion that a Go-Go's/B-52's concert would be little slice of memory-lane heaven. I have to find out if they're playing nearby.
|by We Got the Beat||reply 13||06/23/2013|
Just to be clear, the Go-Go's were awesome, the B-52's were great. Cindy's voice was a little off (she was coming off an illness) and she couldn't hit the high notes on "Girl from Ipanema (Goes to Greenland). She should have sung "Give Me Back Me Man" for her solo. Kate voice is still amazing.
They are both very much worth seeing on this tour.
|by We Got the Beat||reply 14||06/23/2013|
In the last thread there was discussion of their "comeback" album God Bless The Go Gos. I said I dislike the album, and mentioned that peaked at #57 (not so hot) on the album chart, and the single only made it to #22 on the Adult-Contemporary chart. Someone popped up and said well, it made it to #22, so it wasn't a flop. Yes it was, I clearly stated that it made it to #22 on the "Adult-Contemporary" chart, not the main singles chart. The Adult-Contemporary chart is a specialty chart, people don't have an actual hit if that's the only chart a song makes. The song was a no-show on the main chart. Defend the album if you like it, but you have to also acknowledge the album flopped, because it's simply a fact it did.

I saw the Go-Go's with the B-52's two summers ago, and was surprised how hard the B-52's rocked, and how good Kate and Fred sounded. They still play the shit out of Rock Lobster.
I wonder when some actual details about the clear reason for firing Kathy Valentine will come out. There must have been some serious arguments, and major bitchiness. I don't buy the Twitter memoir excuse. I remember she wrote about buying her first house, and taking classes at a community college. Not exactly scandalous stuff about Belinda's hooveresque coke habit.

Judging from social media, sounds like the girls are having a blast on tour.
|by We Got the Beat||reply 19||06/28/2013|
the Go-Go's responded back to the lawsuit. The response was full of crap. Highlights of the Go-Go's response was:
KV played "too bluesy" which, when KV switched to guitar after jane wiedlin departed the band in 1985, she played "too bluesy" and this factor contributed to the band's breakup.
Also, KV, lol, told a newly sober charlotte in 1985 that she hoped she got back on heroin and then died of a drug overdose.
They also accuse KV of playing bass solos over charlotte's guitar solos.
oh, and then lets save the best for last.... they blame KV entirely for the 'backstage go-go's video' that, ya know, belinda carlisle pretty much starred in exclaiming the oh so ever "why cant girls jack off? if you have enough imagination, if you have enough drive...."
basically, KV will win. The Go-Gos' will break up yet again. This is how their legacy goes down. fuckin bitter petty bitches!
|by We Got the Beat||reply 20||06/28/2013|
Wow, R20. Thanks for posting that.
I think you're right - a judge will tear 'em a new one for such petty allegations. They're bringing up something from 1985??!! Not a good sign and definitely not a good look.
They're obviously STILL getting terrible legal advice. It's a truly horrible situation they've gotten themselves into and their only hope is mediation and a settlement. To be honest I feel sorry for them.
KV will take them to the cleaners.

So, basically, the band didn't answer anything of legal substance regarding their formation of their corporation? I can't find anything online about it.
|by We Got the Beat||reply 25||07/01/2013|
If KV wasn't sober, why wouldn't that be part of the band's legal response? They'd have a hell of a lot more traction with an addiction than they would with "she said something mean to me in 1985."

Is it just me or are they trying really hard to appear super happy on this tour? It's like they are going out of their way to do this. Considering Jane indicated there might be a bit of tension, this is a big turn around.

During rehearsals Jane posted about how she needed to feel love under difficult circumstances. I can imagine there has to be some tension but even if there are not, they are trying their damnest to appear very happy. I'm sure there ok but the ladies protest too much with videos and photos, which are a lot more then any other time.
|by We Got the Beat||reply 31||07/02/2013|
Probably the only fun they are having in the band right now are those times when they are onstage, doing what they love.
Dealing with lawyers and the emotional fallout of what is happening in and outside the band would be appalling. I wouldn't wish a lawsuit on my worst enemy - well, maybe my worst enemy, but only if I didn't have to be involved in it myself.
"Talking to a lawyer" is the new "going to the dentist".
|by We Got the Beat||reply 32||07/02/2013|
I suspect the motivation of the videos and the "happy happy joy joy" over done is to counter their own hardcore fans who aren't happy with them. Who is advising these women? They need to be fired.

Theory is one thing, observation is another. Posters are observing how hard they appear to be trying. Of course, you are the one who said no matter what you are on their side.

A Kathy fan was here fighting with Jane and Belinda fans (I hope it was a fan). And making extremely hateful comments about Belinda especially.

Has anyone read KV's statement of claim, provided by the Hollywood Reporter? Here's one amusing anecdote from KV's team:
"In or about October 2011…Carlisle, Wiedlin and Schock expressed to…Valentine their desires about "getting rid of"…Caffey, with…Wiedlin asking in a phone conversation "are you with us or against us?" In an email…Carlisle wrote "I don't want to work with her [i.e., Caffey] at all anymore. Basically it's her or me. She is selfish, destructive and a liar." Carlisle went on to insist "it's over for me. I don't want to work with her. And I can tell you that Jane and Gina don't want to either." Carlisle then added, "I've pretty much made up my mind about this…I found her impossible to be around on the last tour and frankly life's too short.""
|by We Got the Beat||reply 59||07/07/2013|

KV's Complaint affidavit contains two legal grenades that destroy any hope that the other four may have that their newly-formed GOGOCO entity has any right to exploit the Go-Gos' Intellectual Property (i:e, their Name, goodwill, merchandising rights etc.). This IP was jointly-held by all five Go-Gos in their previous company Ladyhead LLC and was peremptorily assigned away to GOGOCO by the other four without KV's knowledge or consent.
KV's statement of Complaint (in para's 38 & 40) quotes two clauses from the original Ladyhead agreement: [bold]"no Member may Transfer all, or any portion, of any interest or rights in the Membership Interest owned by the Member,"[/bold] and any attempt to do so [bold]"shall be deemed invalid, null and void".[/bold]

Catched one of their shows and I definitely felt the spark is gone. Almost as if they were desperately trying to keep the momentum going. The B-52's had the crowd on their feet, looked like people were buying their merchandise/shirts and just had a better vibe overall. I saw alot of people leaving during the go-go's set. Also, Jane made a comment about how it's been a "great year for the go-go's and how they got rid of the troublemakers" and the person sitting next to me heard her say Kathy's name.

I don't know if the spark is gone but I do think they seem to be trying really hard to appear happy, as it has been mentioned here before. If you have to tell everyone that you are happy and got rid of a problem, without anyone asking to a bunch of strangers like mean girls...then things aren't good. Usually because it comforts them.

T&J is open to the public again. GoGos must have ordered it closed until after the tour.
Someone tell Gina to stop drinking and smoking. For god sakes, she's nearing 60 and had heart problems, what is she thinking? Someone needs to control that woman, she's going to go before she should. I'm not happy with her role in GoGoCo but I hate to see her continue to lose her health.

I post a handful of comments saying what I think, and every single time, you lambast me for being foolish, claim I don't have a right to my opinion, how dare (!) I post in this thread.

It would help the rest of us if you old farts would explain who the Go-Go's were and where they went.
|by We Got the Beat||reply 101||09/19/2013|
well the Go-Go's are/were an all female rock/punk band. They formed in 1978, without hardly any musical experience. About two months after they formed, they hired Charlotte Caffey (who studied classical piano in college) and had previously played bass in a punk rock band called "the eyes".... to make a long story short, a few years went by, and the band got better-fired a few members and replaced them with real musicians (gina schock & kathy valentine) and by 1981, released their debut album "beauty & the beat"
Beauty & the Beat, eventually went to #1, making it the first and only album to be written by an female band who played their own instruments. The album is a classic from beginning to end, no filler.... contains elements of pop, rock, punk, and new wave. it spawned two hit singles "our lips are sealed" & "we got the beat".....
the band released two more albums, "vacation" (1982) and "talk show" (1984), both successful, but did not sell as well as their debut album...
During the band's initial peak from 1981-1984, they were portrayed as cute, bubbly, rather innocent...
After the band's explosive breakup in 1985, stories began to be unfold and the truth was revealed that these ladies liked to party, just as hard if not harder, than the boys!! They liked to drink, smoke, do some coke, and some even dabbled in heroin.
After the breakup, all 5 members were pursued solo careers, with different degrees of success. Lead Singer Belinda Carlisle (the only band member who did not write songs or play an instrument) achieved the most solo success, thanks to a song called "heaven is a place on earth" which was #1 both in the U.S. as well, as overseas.
The Go-Go's reunited in 1990 for a one-off reunion show, which was followed by a six week tour later on in the year. The reunion showed a new side of the Go-Go's...The band seemed to show a more mature, glamerous image. The band's reunion was short lived and Belinda Carlisle went back to her solo career, releasing two unsuccessful albums in 1991 & 1993.
In 1994, the band was approached by their old record label about reuniting for a retrospective CD the label was planning to put out with or without the band's involvement. The band decided to reform again, added some old live rehearsals of their punks songs to begin the retrospective, and wrote & recorded 3 new songs. they released a single called "whole world lost its head" which gave them their first top 40 hit in the U.K. the band did a small reunion tour, replacing charlotte caffey for the tour, who was pregnant with her first child. Vicki Peterson, lead guitarist of the bangles, replaced charlotte for the tour...
in 1995, things went to hell in a hand basket. Different rumors from what i heard that the band was offered a major label contract with warner bros. records, and belinda turned it down! When the band's tour brought them to the U.K. in February, jealousies began to emerge because in the U.K. (which solo belinda was a huge star), all the focus in the media was on belinda. In TV/magazine promotional appearances would often display "belinda carlisle & the go-go's" When the tour was over, the band's drummer Gina Schock realized she had been owed 10 years of back $$$ from main songwriter charlotte caffey. Gina sued Charlotte in 1996 and it appeared that the Go-Go's were gone for good.
Meanwhile, Belinda Carlisle, whom we would later find out, was suffering from a serious cocaine problem. Fans & Media believed she had been sober since 1985, right before the original break up of the band... But somewhere around 1989 or 1990 she began her descent back into the drug and would not get sober until 2005.
In 1999, some big time directors were interested in making a movie about the band, so the Go-Go's once again, started talking and reunited for a small tour, to be followed by a bigger tour in 2000 with the b-52s.
in 2001, they released their fourth album "God Bless the Go-Go's", did promotional appearances & toured the whole year... That same year, Belinda Carlisle posed for playboy. ...

From 2001-2011, the band toured almost every single year.
In 2011, the band got a star on the hollywood walk of fame.
In 2012, Kathy Valentine, injured her wrist, and could not tour. The other band members, while on tour, plotted to kick her out of the band.
January 2013, kathy recieves a cold-hearted email from belinda & co. that she's out of the band, and to keep her mouth shut or they will sue her.
Kathy filed suit against the rest of the band, the lawsuit (available online) clearly shows that the other band members are nothing but greedy, selfish, destructive drama seeking immature 50 something year old bitter bitches!
As the Band toured in the summer of 2013, with a substitute bass player, it became obvious to hard core fans that w/o Kathy, the 'soul' of the Go-Go's was no longer intact. And without a soul, you will burn in hell. the remaining band members are working on a new album titled "the Go-Go's Go to Hell"
So, there u have it.... thats the story of the Go-Go's

So, "Our Lips Are Sealed" is being re-recorded by Sid & Susie. If you don't know, Sid & Susie is the name of the duo formed by Matthew Sweet and... (wait for it)... Susanna Hoffs.
The song will be part of their 3rd release, Under the Covers Vol. 3, doing cover versions of music from the 80s. (Their first two recordings were covers from the 60s and 70s.)
And here's the thing - the song sounds better in the hands of Sweet and Hoffs. Particularly the lead vocals. I feel awful for saying that, as I was a huge Go-Go's fan growing up, but Hoffs' vocals are much stronger than Carlisle's. (Although I still prefer Wiedlin's interpretation of the "Hush my darling" bridge.)
Read the article at the link, and give a listen to Sweet/Hoffs performing "Our Lips".

Jane is tiny; does she play a 3/4 size guitar?
My female friend said that Jane tried to pick her up in a club when the Go-Go's were first starting out and that Jane is very, very cute and sweet.
My friend didn't go for it because she was involved with a guy but she now regrets not doing Jane.

Not the first, and definitely not the only. A few of the Beauty and the Beat songs were co-written with others.
The Bangles who came a year later, also wrote most of their own stuff, but were WAY more talented writers and were better musicians (except for maybe Gina Schock). Their debut EP is perfect..

When "Beauty and the Beat" went to #1, they were the opening act for the Police, who had yet to reach the top of the charts. The Police were rather pissy about that fact during the tour. I wonder how the Police felt about washing out the girls' panties while on tour.

Yes, I saw that Police tour with the Go-Go's opening (there was a third band, can't remember who) in a stadium.
A year or so later, at another show I saw in a smaller venue, INXS opened for the Go-Go's. Both times the girls were great.

Oh man, I did too R142. Which is funny, because I think The Bangles' sound changed considerably between the two albums.(I always thought All Over the Place had more of a sixties vibe to it. Not unlike Susanna's recent solo stuff, which I'd highly recommend if you haven't heard it.
But I loved the title track of Different Light, Manic Monday (thanks, Prince) and September Gurls (RIP, Alex Chilton).

I hated where the Bangles went after that, though. It was very blah and bland and icky.

I saw her in April playing with the Bluebonnets. I had no idea who they were or that she was in the band (they opened for Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull). Without knowing who she was I knew she was the standout of the band and had incredible stage presence. They were selling t-shirts at intermission and she was posing with fans and seemed very happy and engaged. She and some other gals from the band came back in to watch Ian's show for a while and sat right in front of me. She was having a good time.

I know R146 is joking, but I did always get a lesbian vibe from Kathy when the Go-Go's were big ('81-'84) and I was a teen. Of course Kathy went on to get married and have a child, while Gina - who I never thought was gay - is widely speculated to be gay. So my teen gay dar was way off. Although I wouldn't be shocked if ol' Kathy had dabbled some.

Gina the drummer is the lesbian. She dates a woman named Susan who runs the Go-Go's facebook page. Currently, Belinda & Jane are on the outs-big surprise! The lawsuit was settled and I believe it went in Kathy's favor. Belinda is working on a new solo album-half pop, half chanting-which will be her priority in 2016. Kathy's band The BlueBonnets released an album "PLAYLOUD" which is a masterpiece IMO, and have toured alot in 2015 in support of it. Jane has moved to Hawaii-See ya Bitch! Charlotte is helping out Belinda with her awful new solo record.

r150 Gina and that crazy b___ Susan broke up last year. Now that Jane will be moving to Hawaii, I expect Gina to say she's moving back to L.A., just watch. Meanwhile, she's been here for a bit writing with other songwriters for some Disney chick.
Saw Kathy and the Bluebonnets when they swung around last time. They are pretty good. All my friends really liked seeing them live and said they would go see them again. Good on her for getting away from the GoGo's, even if it took a nasty push out.
