The Go Gos  
When I think of the Go Gos, I am automatically transported to the early '80s when I watched American Bandstand with my dad every Saturday. I remember the day when the Go Gos were on because they announced the song 'We Got the Beat' and my little girl ears heard 'We Go To Be'. [And that's how I sang it.]
Good memories, those. Hell, I even just got rid of my 'Beauty and the Beat' cassette in 2010---had picked it up in the mid-90s second hand. Still worked great the whole time.

Anyway, here is a How They Look Now entry just for the Go Gos from their early '80s heyday to last August, when they accepted their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Enjoy!

Thanks! I agree about Jane...wow. I came across the recent group photo a week or two ago and bookmarked it for a future post here. I didn't really look at it closely until yesterday and my first thought was, 'Where is Jane?'

Uh...yeah. Like everyone else said, what happened to Jane? She used to look pretty cute even when she was on The Surreal Life.
