The Bangles: Local Girls Make Good

Richard Cromelin, Los Angeles Times, 4 May 1986

FOUR WAYS to tell when you've made it, courtesy of the Bangles: Drummer Debbi Peterson: "It's so amazing, standing on the corner — this happened in Washington, D.C. — and somebody comes by in a Cadillac and you hear 'Manic Monday' on the radio, and you don't even know this person, and they're listening to it and singing along with it. Wow! Blows your mind."
