Strained relations have relaxed between bandmembers, Wiedlin claims, and the only controversy these days comes from the outside, like when the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame decided to launch an exhibit this month called "Women Who Rock," and neglected to include the Go-Go's alongside Cyndi Lauper, Chrissie Hynde, and Yoko Ono.
"I know that with the Go-Go's some people love us, some people hate us, and some people think we're wimps," Wiedlin says. "But no matter what you think, you cannot take away the fact that we were the first all-female band to write our own songs, play our own instruments, and have a number-one record — there's no denying that. And if museums are based on history, and historical incidents, then the Go-Go's need to be a big part of that."
The Rock Hall is said to be working on the omission — maybe Roth could help fit them in?
