    From our "What an Accident" File: The Go-Go's have canceled their summer reunion tour after bassist Jane Wiedlin suffered a 20-foot fall from a mountain in Northern California, where she resides. The band had scheduled a July 7 Lilith Fair appearance in San Diego, as well. But that is no more, as Wiedlin is scheduled to have ACL replacement surgery on her knee and she could be laid up for a year. "The band is heartbroken and hopes their fans will send best wishes for Jane's speedy recovery. In the meantime, tickets can be refunded at point of purchase," read the official statement.

    This news begs the question: What was Wiedlin doing hanging out on a mountain? She was hiking actually. Go here for more info.

    The only positive thing about this news is that the tour was not cancelled due to low ticket sales, like so many other postponed road treks – see Christina Aguilera, Limp Bizkit, etc.

    What's your favorite girl group?
