The Go-Go’s were formed in 1978 in Los Angeles. They made history as the first, and to date only, all-female band that both wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to top the Billboard album charts with Beauty and the Beat.
The five key members of the Go-Go’s were Belinda (vocals), Jane Wiedlin (guitar & vocals), Charlotte Caffey (guitar, keyboards), Gina Schock (drums) and Kathy Valentine (Bass). Kathy parted company with the band in 2013. The band still tour as a four piece with Abby Travis on bass.
