Go-Go’s 1977-1980 We Got The Beat!

Go-Go’s 1977-1980 We Got The Beat!

Go-Gos, 1977-1980. I loved photographing Belinda Carlisle, Jane Draino Wiedlin, and the totes adorbs Margot. A few shots of Charlotte Caffey with then-boyfriend, Leonard Phillips, singer of the Dickies, first LA punk band to get signed. Plus Jane with her then-boyfriend, Terry Graham, drummer for the Bags and Gun Club. And more, so let’s get started with some IDs and stories behind my photos. Plus so many of our friends. Good times.

Go-Go’s and Charlotte Caffey: She’s Got The Beat!

Go-Go’s and Charlotte Caffey: She’s Got The Beat!

Go-Go’s at X’s home for bar-b-que. Billy Zoom, Charlotte Caffey, Jane Wiedlin, Gina Shock, Margot, John Doe. The Go-Go’s quite often opened for X, giving the audience GREAT shows. Plus great real world experience for the bands. Oh the stories I could tell of those shows!

Plus some were hanging out together, before many bands were formed or performing. Fun to be at Ground Zero of this burgeoning scene. I have the earliest photos!

Belinda, Lorna, Go-Go’s and Germs

Belinda wrote: “The following people have each, in some way, made a difference in my life, and I am so grateful… JENNY LENS.” Third line, after two LA pals who are very close to her, JENNY LENS.

I CRY with Gratitude every time I read or think about this. My name above so many famous people from all walks of life. Just re-read Belinda’s great autobio Lips Unsealed: A Memoir. I am thrilled she used ONLY my punk photos, 1977-1980.
