Rick Keene Music Scene – Kathy Valentine Explores The Go-Go’s in Her New Book. Part One

Kathy Valentine just wanted to be in a band.

Kathy Valentine has been a working musician and songwriter for over 40 years, starting her first band in her hometown of Austin and making a name for herself in the iconic band the Go-Go’s after moving to Los Angeles.

The Go-Go’s are considered the most successful all-female band of all time and made music history for writing and performing the first and only album by an all-female band to top the charts. Kathy wrote or co-wrote some of the band’s most renowned tunes, including the hits “Vacation” and “Head Over Heels.”

Signing with the esteemed University of Texas Press to write a memoir fulfilled Kathy’s dream to be a published author. Her first book, All I Ever Wanted: A Rock ‘N’ Roll Memoir will be released in spring 2020.

Taking an innovative approach and intersecting her storytelling with her songwriting skills, Kathy has written, performed and recorded a soundtrack of fully original songs and music to accompany her memoir.
