    I have seen it twice and it's fantastic... as good as this sort of thing gets.

    That's great to hear because the trailer really isn't all that terrific.

    I haven't seen this, but I was surprised to read recently that Charlotte Caffey was a completely dysfunctional heroin addict by the first end of the Gogo's.

    We watched last night, I really enjoyed it. I wanted a little bit more footage from the early 80s LA punk scene, but that’s a very minor complaint. It’s only one part of their story.

    Saw it yesterday. Really well done, I really enjoyed the footage of their Punk days.

    Moving onto Pop wasn’t a “sell out”, it was as much a natural musical progression as it was for The Beatles, The Stones, The Police, Blondie and Elvis Costello. Even The Clash dipped into Pop. The Ramones wanted to be as big as The Beatles though they weren’t able to in their lifetime, but they did mix Pop into their sound.

    The Go-Go’s took the right path and it worked for them. The documentary is great and definitely worth catching.

    Charlotte has been candid about the depths of her addiction in more recent interviews.

    In light of the news of her then-dire situation, I find it surprising that Belinda's taste for cocaine still gets all of the play in the media. o_O

    Guess it's just the good ol' spotlight-on-the-hipster-lead-singer syndrome at work here.

    How much of this dirty laundry (and Jane's displeasure & departure from the band) do they air out in the documentary?

    me too. still a prolific and productive songwriter through it. Her 'writer's block' around the Vacation LP still produced seven out of 12 songwriting credits on that album! would love to have that kind of writer's block!

    Quite a bit. I felt it was brutally honest and hit a lot of sore spots head on.

    I enjoyed it immensely. Some things were discussed that I had not heard previously...like Jane and Gina having a brief relationship early on. Also, I had read Jane left because they would not allow her to sing "Forget That Day". While that was definitely an issue, the doc states she left because it was announced by management to split the publishing no matter who wrote the song. While there was talk about Jane's failed solo career, there was no mention that she has a Top 10 single with "Rush Hour"--or a mid chart hit with the wonderful "Blue Kiss".
    Sadly, Jane says she cannot stand to listen to Talk Show because of the trauma at the time, but it is my favorite of their albums.

    I finally saw the documentary last night and enjoyed it. I wish they had covered the past reunions a bit more. There was no mention at all of the God Bless The Go-Go's album.

    LOL.....I would have liked to have seen that as well. Still......terrific documentary. All were very candid and honest about their issues. Their new song (Club Zero) is great as well!
