In a 2015 interview on Oprah: Where Are They Now?, Belinda Carlisle of the Go-Go’s revisited how the legendary group was fashioned. In 1978, Belinda and the 4 different authentic members of the band, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, Margot Olavarria, and Elissa Bello, determined to create a music group, though she stated nearly all of them had no earlier publicity to taking part in devices.
“We have been sitting on a curb, 5 ladies one evening at a celebration in Venice,” Belinda stated. “Everyone was in a band aside from us, and you possibly can be horrible. You did not actually should know learn how to play an instrument. So it was like, ‘I will play bass!’ ‘I will play guitar!’ That is how the band was fashioned. No one knew learn how to do something.”
Regardless of their inexperience with performing, the group remained pushed and rapidly moved up the music business ladder. They’re now considered to be essentially the most achieved all-female rock group in music historical past.
“Behind all that, there was some critical ambition, and I keep in mind working 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.”
