After taking a few weeks off to rest and recharge, Jason “Cone” McCaslin of Sum 41 has returned for season 3 of Cone’s Cave, exclusively on idobi Radio. Ushering in this fresh season with a bang rather than a whisper, Cone welcomes living legend, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, founding guitarist of The Go-Go’s, Jane Wiedlin. Not only was Jane part of one of the greatest all-female rock bands in history, but she also has a new band now called Elettro Domestico.

“You don’t wanna go anywhere because we talk about a lot of stuff,” Cone introduces the episode. “Early Go-Go’s, the first breakup of The Go-Go’s, then obviously they reunited. We talk about her acting in Clue. We talk about her new band, Elettro Domestico. You know one thing I will say about this: I’m sure a lot of people, when they’re about to talk to someone for the first time or meet someone for the first time, and they kind of have a preconceived notion of what they’re going to be like and if they’re gonna be cool or if they’re not gonna be cool.”

He continues, “Well, with Jane, I follow her on Instagram, and I see what she posts and I’ve listened to The Go-Go’s pretty much all my life. I’ve seen their videos, I’ve seen some interviews, I just assumed in my head that Jane was gonna be really, really cool. And when you finally talk to someone or meet someone, and that is confirmed for you, there’s nothing better than that.”

Discussing Cone and Jane briefly meeting at the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan in 2004, Jane recalls going out to a small bar ahead of their festival performance. “We had some pretty wild nights with Green Day when we were there,” Jane recalls, laughing. “They took us to this bar that was so tiny, it had like eight seats. And, of course, we just took the place over, and we were playing music really loud, and everyone was jumping up on the bar and dancing and singing. It was pretty fun.”
