There are problems and conflicts arise, but so far we've been able to overcome any difficulties that arise in a really considerate and mature fashion.
I'm friends with Carla Olsen and she's doing a lot of producing these days. She's getting quite a little collection of records that she's produced. She's real busy.
I'm just excited to show that everything that was likable about us when we first came out is still intact, and as strong if not stronger than it was.
The new material fits very comfortably with the older stuff.
Obviously, the hit singles get the biggest reaction - that's when you can see people really getting excited.
If you have to do it, then you're doing the right thing.
But the new stuff sounds like the Go-Go's, so the crowd isn't getting up and going to the bathroom every time we play a new song.
We only get together when there's a good reason. Like, last summer, we didn't really intend to go out, but we thought the B-52's tour was a good opportunity.
I haven't been approached to do anything, but I would certainly make room for it. It was a really fun time.
The reunion we did the summer before last was really good. It was the first time that we had a really good time and made money together.
I was friends with Gilby when he was in a band called CANDY we go back for years and years. We live in the same neighborhood and we have always been in touch. In 1990, we did a tour together with a bunch of people called THE WILD BUNCH . We stayed in touch and he was actually the first person I asked to help me. I trusted him to be supportive. If it sounded bad then I wouldnt be too embarrassed. Gilby is a great guy and I respect his input. When you produce something you need to have someone that you can go, 'What do you think' There is an old joke that says, 'What makes a great producer' The answer is, 'I don't know. What do you think' I was one of those producers who needed reassurance.
When we finished the tour we had been writing together for a year. We moved forward from there and have just now finished our record. We're having a new record out in the Spring.
Anything that makes a place more attractive makes people want to stop and shop. It's a great community effort to bring people together.
I think it's a reflection of the music business in general, which to me seems very fragmented.
together we're trying to make a wish come true that somebody else wasn't going to let happen.
But the Go-Go's are a very original, kind of organic thing.
Kids need stuff which is different than what their life is that they can kind of live through.
I think if they don't have enough police, they need to get some from other places. They need some radical cops.
I'm hoping that with the high profile that the Go-Go's are going to have over the next year, that if anybody is interested in what else I do, I'll have something I can say that I do.
Every now and then, a lot of bands doing the same kind of music will organically sprout up at once.
Ace is very reclusive. That was really one of the first tracks that I did for the album. I met Ace because a friend of mine brought him to my birthday party. We hit it off. We were just hanging out and he was really such a sweetheart. He actually offered to do it. I told him that I was going into the studio in a couple of days and he offered to play on it. How often do you get a rock icon to appear on your record I really like that he is playing on a track that is not anything like a KISS song it is more like a BLONDIE song. He really did a great solo that is in a really different context than people are used to. Gilby and I were recording him and when he did this solo he said, 'Let me do another one.' We both said, 'No, that is the one. You got it.'
It's kind of like family. I can't say that we go out to lunch and to the movies every day with each other. Everyone's fully grown adult women with lives.
A lot of people don't realize it, but I've a lot less success than I've have had success.
Because usually in the past when I was in a big band, that was all I did.
You don't do it for some end result, hoping you get signed or get this cool gig or get a big following. It's got to matter to you.
because I wanted to still be creative when I was very, very pregnant. I never wanted to make a solo record before. Then I started liking the way it was coming together.
I've struggled just as much as anyone else.
With The Delphines, what I've come to realize is that you have to decide for yourself if it's something that you love and if it's fulfilling to you.
I'm so happy, ... This was all about Casey's happiness.
The first album is a classic record and I think the prototype of a sound that no one else does.
I met Rodney when I first moved to LA, so I'd say 20 years. He's the eternal teenager.
We always have a good time playing, and I'm glad it shows.
I will be very grateful that I get to go out and play a song and get well paid for it.
I believe it makes us all even closer believe it or not. We were all pretty close to begin with but I think it's done even more for us. It truly is a brotherhood and I'm glad to be a part of it.
It's very different than it use to be. I think everybody has a lot more experience in how to be in a relationship - whether it's a marriage or a significant other or a business or a friend.
