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.
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.
If you have to do it, then you're doing the right thing.
I met Rodney when I first moved to LA, so I'd say 20 years. He's the eternal teenager.
The first album is a classic record and I think the prototype of a sound that no one else does.
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.
I haven't been approached to do anything, but I would certainly make room for it. It was a really fun time.
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 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.
I think it's a reflection of the music business in general, which to me seems very fragmented.
Obviously, the hit singles get the biggest reaction - that's when you can see people really getting excited.
A lot of people don't realize it, but I've a lot less success than I've have had success.
The new material fits very comfortably with the older stuff.
Every now and then, a lot of bands doing the same kind of music will organically sprout up at once.
I will be very grateful that I get to go out and play a song and get well paid for it.
But the Go-Go's are a very original, kind of organic thing.
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.
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.
Because usually in the past when I was in a big band, that was all I did.
Ive struggled just as much as anyone else.
Kids need stuff which is different than what their life is that they can kind of live through.
We always have a good time playing, and I'm glad it shows.
