Go-Go's Will Have New Music Coming says Guitarist. Billboard.comExcerpt from article:
by Gary Graff.
Weidlin tells Billboard.com "We've talked about it for years. It's one of those ongoing conversatons. I was thinking about how few records we actually have made in our 33 years and about how few records we actually have made in our 33 years and how we could be doing a lot better. Because the Go-Go's isn't a full-time band anymore and the fact we've scattered over the whoe world, it makes it really hard to commit to things like making records...Wiedlin adds that bandmates Charlotte Caffey and Kathy Valentine have, in fact, written a new song "that is good, and if we get our act together to learn it, we might perform it in concert." ----------"Sometimes it's amazing fun, and it's always magical when we play live together. And sometimes we are just such a pain in the ass to each other, like, we all get on each other's nerves because we've all known each other for so long. Basically it's a five-way marriage that's gone on for 33 years - and will keep going if I have anything to say about it."
