Biography

Regina Ann "Gina" Schock (born August 31, 1959, Baltimore, Maryland) is best known as the drummer in the all-girl rock 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 had open-heart surgery before the tour supporting the band's 1984 album Talk Show. In 1985 she was occasionally seen on television appearances as the drummer of the Norwegian band a-ha. However this was just for promo on television as she was never part of the official band.

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 and Vance DeGeneres formed House of Schock, which released one album for Capitol Records.
