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 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!
