ASK KATHY VALENTINE

I was writing about the Go-Go's 25th anniversary tour, and found a wonderful thing to share with you-- The "Ask Kathy Valentine" section on Kathy Valentine's website. You can ask her any question about what it is like being the Go-Gos and she will answer in total earnest (she plays the same guitars as Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top). The most recent question is a dude insulting her playing and asking her if she ever got les with Jane Weidlin. Imagine being in the Go-Gos, and having been playing for guitar for 28 years and dudes still flipping you shit for not being able to play like it's year-zero and you did not write "Vacation". I wrote in with my burning question --you should with yours. Respect is due.
