The bonus is 1982 Jane Wiedlin (the guitarist on screen at 02:16). She was up there with the bass player from the Bangles in the "rock and roll dreams" department.

How perceptions change with age. Back in the day, Belinda seemed fat to me, but now watching this video, she looks like a perfectly normal girl with a round face. I think Kathy has probably aged the best of all of them, though Jane gets an exemption because of her accident.

Valentine is the youngest, so it make sense that she has aged the least.

What accident did Jane have?

Clear the floor, I've got the CSB covered here:

I was playing a music festival out in LA. After a couple of shows. we went into town to Jack's Sugar Shack on Vine near Hollywood because a couple of bands we were friends with were playing there. In between the two bands we knew was a band fronted by two chicks. I thought they were really good, so I approached the lead singer.

She introduced herself as Kathy and offered me a beer. She seemed more interested in my band and how we were enjoying LA. After a while, she introduced by to the Bass Player. "This is my friend, Gina. Gina introduced herself, "Gina Shock."

DONG!

Holy shiat, I fell like the biggest rube that fell off turnip truck. It was two of the freaking GoGos and I was the only one in the room that didn't realize it. With normal instead of stupid 80s hair, she was quite smoking. "Well, I guess you know now I wasn't just ass-kissing you."

She continued to fill me with her GoGo Juice and she was so nice. When it was time to go, I went to Kathy do say good bye. She gave me a hug, so I decided to go for a kiss. She seemed to like that so I went in for the full-on snog Just then my brother yelled at me, "It's time to GO!" We looked at each other furtively for like a half second then with the same look of disappointment like "this ain't happening."

And I was whisked from my sweet GoGo forever.

It's a well know fact that massive cocaine abuse can cause problems with muscle control. Wonder if she's still using the stuff? Or does she have some other medical issue that would cause this?

PUNK....? I think I was talking about Vacation, which hardly fits that description. If they were once a punk band, well...they weren't by that time. They were POP. And pop singers that can't sing on key are damned annoying...especially one with a big ol' butt.

But fellas c'mon, the Go-Go's weren't exactly a buncha swimsuit models. I found them somewhat amusing, but hardly fap-worthy (80's Jane notwithstanding). And seeing the video of them all geeked up didn't exactly enhance that image.

I mean, around that same time my girlfriend subscribed to the Victoria's Secret catalog, and back in the 80's their catalogs were porn. I do recall some good times with those catalogs, and I recall quite well that there were no pics of the Go-Go's therein.
