Former Go-Go a No-Go

LOS ANGELES, CA (AP) – Former Go-Go’s bassist Kathy Valentine is suing the band, claiming they formed a new company to cut her out.

The Hollywood Reporter reports Valentine’s complaint says she’s entitled to 20 percent of the band’s revenues as a member of the two companies that conduct the band’s business.

Valentine says the four other band members used their majority control to create a new company to freeze out Valentine and keep her off their planned 2013 tour.

The Go-Go’s announced in March they had parted ways with Valentine due to “irreconcilable differences.”
