In a 2015 interview on Oprah: The place Are They Now?, Belinda Carlisle of the Go-Go’s revisited how the legendary group was shaped. In 1978, Belinda and the 4 different unique members of the band, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, Margot Olavarria, and Elissa Bello, determined to create a music group, though she mentioned nearly all of them had no earlier publicity to taking part in devices.
“We had been sitting on a curb, 5 ladies one night time at a celebration in Venice,” Belinda mentioned. “Everyone was in a band apart from us, and you possibly can be horrible. You did not actually must know how you can play an instrument. So it was like, ‘I will play bass!’ ‘I will play guitar!’ That is how the band was shaped. No person knew how you can do something.”
Regardless of their inexperience with performing, the group remained pushed and shortly moved up the music business ladder. They’re now thought-about to be probably the most achieved all-female rock group in music historical past.
“Behind all that, there was some critical ambition, and I keep in mind operating down the steps with Jane going, ‘We will be wealthy and well-known sooner or later!'” Belinda added. “And searching again on it, it was, like, whole manifestation.”
