On this episode of the It's Only Rock And Roll Podcast, we talk to drummer GINA SCHOCK, the outspoken, hard-rocking heartbeat behind rock's first #1 charting, all-female band, The Go-Go's. Gina gives us a peek into her inner sanctum, pulling out some of her favorite 45's from an immense collection of not only vinyl, but additionally forty plus years of Go-Go's memorabilia – much of which featured in her new coffee-table photobook: “Made In Hollywood – All Access With The Go-Go's”. She also offers a frank history of the band, from their meteoric rise out of the underground punk scene into the top of the charts with hits like “Our Lips Are Sealed” and “We Got The Beat”, to how a conflict over royalties almost scotched the band permanently.
