Obviously, the hit singles get the biggest reaction – that's when you can see people really getting excited.
I met Rodney when I first moved to LA, so I'd say 20 years. He's the eternal teenager.
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.
The first album is a classic record and I think the prototype of a sound that no one else does.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I haven't been approached to do anything, but I would certainly make room for it. It was a really fun time.
Kids need stuff which is different than what their life is that they can kind of live through.
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.
A lot of people don't realize it, but I've a lot less success than I've have had success.
I think it's a reflection of the music business in general, which to me seems very fragmented.
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.
