Biography

Singer Belinda Carlisle earned a place in pop music history as a founding member of the female pop band The Go-Go's before going on to release 30 singles as a solo artist. Born Belinda Kurczesky on Aug. 17, 1958, Carlisle was raised in Northern Los Angeles County and gravitated towards Hollywood's burgeoning punk scene in the late 1970s. She formed The Go-Go's with guitarist Jane Wiedlin in 1978, and when the punk band grew to include Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock, and Kathy Valentine, and its sound evolved into kitschy, '60s-flavored power pop, they were signed to IRS records. In 1981, The Go-Go's became the first self-contained female band to hit No. 1 on the record charts with the release of their multi-platinum debut Beauty and the Beat, which spawned such classic "new wave" hits as "We Got the Beat" and "Our Lips are Sealed." Overnight, The Go-Go's became pop stars and fashion trendsetters, and as frontwoman, Carlisle earned the lion's share of the attention. The Go-Go's 1982 follow-up album Vacation hit Gold status but despite the hit single "Head Over Heels," their 1984 release Talk Show marked a decline in overall popularity. In-fighting and drug problems were blamed for the band's split in 1985.
