Go-Go's Part Ways With Bassist Kathy Valentine

At 11 PM (ET) on Friday night, the Go-Go's posted the following statement to their Facebook:
The Go Go's have parted ways with bassist Kathy Valentine, citing irreconcilable differences.

The rest of the lineup, original since 1979 ( BELINDA CARLISLE OFFICIAL , Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock and Jane Wiedlin) remains intact.

The band looks forward to another fun and exciting tour this summer.
Valentine started her professional career as a member of Girlschool in 1975 and, three years later, started the Textones. She joined the Go-Go's in 1980 as a temporary replacement for their ill bassist but soon became a full-time member. After the breakup (and eventual reunion) she was in the World's Cutest Killers, the BlueBonnets and the Delphines.

At this point, nothing has been said about the reason for the break or who will replace her for their upcoming tour with the B-52's.
