The Go-Go’s Walk Of Fame Star Ceremony! Belinda Carlisle! Jane Wiedlin! Charlotte Caffey! Gina Schock! Kathy Valentine!

“Vacation, all I ever wanted, Vacation happy to get away…” God, I love the Go-Go’s… I really mean it… I got the beat, and my lips are not sealed about it… And before Pinky can can say, “Oh no you didn’t” yes… Yes, I did… The whole world may have lost their heads, but I am for one am head over heels for the first ladies of pop…

Anyway, today the Go-Go’s are getting their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and I am super excited to see them… One of the best memories I have is attending my first Go-Go’s show… My father had just passed away and it was a very hard time for me… a couple months after his passing the Go-Go’s released their album called God Bless The Go-Go’s and performed a free concert at the now defunct Warehouse Music at the Beverly Connection. The show was so great and it was the first time I had fun since he passed, so I have a little soft spot for the Go-Go’s….

Check out the rest of the report after the jump!

9:01 a.m. – I just arrived and already there are like 30 people here… damn! I really didn’t expect it to be this insane… Ah well… What can you do right?

9:11 a.m. – I found a moderately decent spot but I’m still pretty far over to the side… Ah well… Thank God the sun isn’t very strong yet…

9:37 a.m. – I brought my original Rolling Stone magazine from 1984 with me as well as a couple picture discs… One is the We Got The Beat/Our Lips Are Sealed limited edition 7” and the other is the Automatic picture disc… Super cool stuff…

10:04 a.m. – CB said he is coming to help me, and he has Scotty’s Vacation LP as well…

10:16 a.m. – Wow, the crowd is really growing… Honestly, I didn’t realize how passionate the Go-Go’s fan base is… huh… I’m hoping that they do another new album… I know, I know it probably won’t happen but you never know right?

10:43 a.m. The Bettie Page store on Hollywood Blvd is the former location of the first club the Go-go’s ever played in… The store did some fun window displays to celebrate the day for the band.
