Jane Wiedlin (The Go-Go's)
While in design college in the mid 1970′s, Jane Wiedlin stumbled upon the burgeoning LA punk rock scene and was inspired to form The Go-Go’s. The band quickly became local favorites, and were signed by the indie label IRS Records. With many of their songs written or co-written by Jane (including the classic “Our Lips Are Sealed”), The Go-Go’s went on to enormous success, selling out Madison Square Garden, the Hollywood Bowl and appearing twice on the cover of Rolling Stone. The band became the first ever all-girl group to write their own songs, play their own instruments, and become immensely popular doing it. After seven years, The Go-Go’s split up and went their separate ways. Jane moved on to a solo career, releasing six albums of her own which included the hit Rush Hour. Five years after breaking up, The Go-Go’s reformed and have remained a band ever since. As an actor, Jane has appeared in many movies including Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Clue. As a voice actor, Jane has lent her unique sound to such projects as King of the Hill, Pinky and the Brain and several of the Scooby Doo animated movies. As a songwriter, Jane co-wrote her first country hit, “But for the Grace of God” by Keith Urban. The song went to #1 and launched Urban as a country superstar. Jane was watched by millions as one of the cast of VH1′s hit TV series The Surreal Life. Jane’s unique blend of warmth and comedy captured the hearts of a whole new generation of fans.
