Years of hard work with the hope of getting that recording contract, but keeping true to an original artistic vision. In rock music we have seen it over and over again. A member of a band either leaves or is replaced then the band becomes huge!
I don’t personally know the details of how or why original bassist Margot Olavarria was no longer in the Go-Go’s, but shortly after her departure, the band hit it big with Beauty and the Beat.
It’s a story that will continue to repeat itself in rock.
