The band didn't like it (though the image is, in retrospective, totes dorb) and it fell to Canzoneri to complain to Jann Wenner, the magazine's publisher.

Hometown. Jane Wiedlin is an American musician, singer-songwriter, best known as the rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist of the Go-Go's, a popular new wave musical band. I didn't hold it against them -- I can and will at the slightest provocation make a case for the prefabricated Monkees as a genuinely great rock 'n' roll band -- but figured someone had selected the young ladies for the band, seen they were given lessons in elocution and how to hold a bass guitar, prettied up, powdered up and sent out to conquer the world.
