Drum Dungeon Bio - GINA SCHOCK
Gina Schock (born Regina Ann Schock, August 31, 1957, Baltimore, Maryland) is best known as the drummer in the all-girl punk/pop band The Go-Go's.

Schock's career began as drummer for Edie and the Eggs, a band assembled to feature the John Waters star Edith Massey. After her stint in Edie and the Eggs, Schock relocated to Los Angeles, California, and soon joined The Go-Go's. Schock recorded and toured steadily with The Go-Go's until the group disbanded in 1985 and reformed a few years later. She currently lives in San Francisco.

Following the dissolution of The Go-Go's, Schock continued drumming with various artists, and would also hone her singing and songwriting skills. In 1987 she joined with Vance DeGeneres and formed House of Schock, which released one album for Capitol Records.
