We’re at the bar, where I like to be where Kingsville we’re at the corner of eggs and Miller and Frederick which is about a mile outside the Beltway State Fair across the street. This is where they shoot the fireworks and they do New Year’s Eve and the fire department here. We’re about a half a block from Bill’s music and we’re celebrating the to the Maryland crab cake tour. We have Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jeanne shock of the fabulous Go Go’s in the house a shock with us. So brought to you by our friends for winter Nation. I’m giving away a Maryland lottery scratch offs. I had a $100 winner at Coco’s last week. So I was thrilled about that, because she stood up and screamed, and we had a great time and a great show out there. Hope everybody’s enjoying that. And I have waited eight months, you and I haven’t spoken word to each other other than you saw me at the Hard Rock. He said, Hey, hon, how you doing? Oh, I love you by and you’re signing autographs, and your rockstar, your hall of fame and all this stuff. And since the last time we talked, you ate my crab cake. It cost this Yeah, well, the two of them. I’m sorry. And you left. And then two days later, I get a text from window who says to Me? Gina likes a cute drummer that you that you grew up with at Johnny Alec boy, what’s that all about? She needs a guitar player does he played a guitar? And I’m like, Well, you need to call Ed Lauer because that allows the guitar guy in Baltimore. And I just threw a text out, kissed into when it was two days before Christmas. You were very emotional, being home with your family and all of that. And the next thing I know Ed Lauer texted me said, I was over to his house. She’s the nicest lady I’ve ever met. And it’s east side is Baltimore. And next thing I know you got a band full of my friends, Ed’s friends, our friends, his relatives, my childhood friends, all with this Dundalk connection
Gina Schock 01:57
it’s a family affair. So
Nestor Aparicio 01:58

Gina Schock 01:59
Well, you know, good people. What can I say? I didn’t I I didn’t know this was all going to happen. But Nestor you know, I guess things just happen the way they’re supposed to. I really do believe in destiny. I really do too. And so I think that like me meeting you, and then you talking about it. Don’t say John and bla bla,
Nestor Aparicio 02:18

Like, I just know you from, you know, MTV, you’re gonna meet and you’re this legend of Dundalk that I never met John and I had talked about you 20 times every time we get together. I’m like, you find Gina shock yet? No, I don’t know, choice. George. You know, like, I
Gina Schock 02:48
feel very protective. I mean, there’s gotta love them. When we told that story. Last year, Christmas time, just got to say one thing that I’ve been back here a lot lately, and it’s just I can’t believe how much I’m loving being in Baltimore. And I used to want to run from Baltimore. And now Oh, wow. It’s so beautiful. And it’s just feel like a washed with gratitude for everything, you know, for growing up here and seeing how lovely everyone is. I mean, it’s completely different than my life on the West Coast. And as you would imagine, and it’s so real and profound, and it’s it’s um, you know, it’s just makes it fills me with joy to be here these days, you know, so why don’t you put his gravesite so
Nestor Aparicio 03:31

Gina Schock 03:55
took her to the vet today to make sure she was okay. She has a heart. What’s interesting, she has a heart murmur. Okay, I had a heart murmur. And then I had have heart surgery. But she’s gonna be okay. Sure. Yeah. That was kind
Nestor Aparicio 04:05
of your heart surgery was kind of famous, right? Yeah. Yeah. That was in the prime of like the Go Go’s, right. Yeah,
Gina Schock 04:10
I was just looking through stuff. And I found the news footage from that, which is really kind of funny and weird. very surreal, actually.
Nestor Aparicio 04:17
Okay, so I want to literally have your drink here. By the way. We’re at the Beaumont gene shots just kind of hanging out. She’s trying to get off camera as much as she can come back here. You gotta come closer to come to us. So So we’re at the bar of Beaumont. We were at cost this last year. And I want to recap this for everybody in one minute. I didn’t know you from BU. I always wanted to know you. I knew you where you were from. I knew I still don’t know what house your parents lived in. I just know when that clusters across the planet. I don’t really know where it is right? To this day. I don’t know where it is. And I would always wonder which house was yours. I would always think to myself, Why doesn’t she come back and then George knew you. And I’m like bucket list. I mean Dundalk. And then you went on Hall of Fame and then I started chasing your publicist around to have you on and I woke up last year on an October day I was doing the show with drug City was the first time I’d ever been to a city. It’s so great. And I woke up and Donna Jean rumbly had you on her timeline having breakfast over at the bay, and I pooped the brick. I’m like, love it. She’s in Baltimore. Donna, I need to have her on the show I’m doing a live show that need to be today are like John Waters has agreed to come on the show. There’s a series, he agreed to come on the show. And I turned him down because he was zoom. And I’m like, I want to do with you know,
Gina Schock 05:34
he’s, he’s tough to get a hold of I don’t I you know, I run into him at weird places. I’ll be like, the last time I ran into him was in LA. And I was at this kind of great deli place. And I was ordering something and somebody in a voice next to me was like, Oh, I was like, John, and he was like, Jean, I was like Jesus Christ that you knew. Sandwiches. Yeah.
Nestor Aparicio 05:55
How did what’s first time you met John Waters?
Gina Schock 05:57
Oh, a long time ago, because my connection and actually the song a lot of what’s happened to me and the girls in the band was due to Edith Massey, who was in John’s films. Sure. And I was in her band. And 78. And that’s how I edX. Yeah, that’s how I got to LA San Francisco. I would go to New York. doors for you. I love her. Yeah, I mean, being with her. I, I was turning 21. And I decided, after flying to LA and San Francisco was like, Okay, I need to make the decision I need to get out of here. I don’t know where I’m gonna go yet. But I’m gonna figure that out. So I just took time and I went back to San Francisco, went back to LA, spent a little time in New York and then decided, LA is where I’m gonna go. I think I could make it there. Because the cost of living was somewhat reasonable compared to everywhere else. I was thinking to go and I mean, 7879 and 7879. Yeah. All right. And so I went back to LA but it was Ed that got me there initially playing in her band.
Nestor Aparicio 06:57
And she and John were like this, right? Well, I mean,
Gina Schock 07:02
Ed had her shop down in Fells Point on Broadway, eat it’s shopping bag. And when I was 19, I moved out of the house, I moved at 15 North Broadway, right up the street. So I would go down there and see her all the time. And she just be sitting at the front of her store at the cash register with their cat lovey, and Jean, her little servant. And, and that was, oh, hygiene out, you know, she was wonderful. And I would talk to her all the time because I loved her.
Nestor Aparicio 07:26
What kind of music was eating the eggs? Punk?
Gina Schock 07:29
Just straight? Yeah, just like, you know,
Nestor Aparicio 07:32
what did you listen to when we went? What’s a gateway in in Dundalk? 1975 I
Gina Schock 07:39
listen to music, I listened to everything, which I still do. I would I went to record stores. Every week, I would stop in a record store and get whatever was new, whatever’s happened. I was there, I’d spent all my mountain records and concert tickets and magazines crane, Rolling Stone, whatever, you know, I mean, it was all about music. That’s all I cared about. So all my money my last money was spent on instruments until I finally settled on drums. And then tickets end music every every there I don’t know what the name of that record store was. But it was down where two guys used to be on merit Boulevard. Tape trade which is now all these are something right there in that little there was a record store that I would go to all the time there to buy all my music, and I would get anything that was new and I especially was enamored with the Brits I loved I loved English music and Sex Pistols. Yeah, but before that even that mean I was always that’s sort of that spoke to me that I was drawn to that like you know from from Zeppelin anything that was from the UK. I was like, Oh, I love it. And so I would get any new releases and I started getting like, you know, the Buzzcocks, Sex Pistols whatever, whatever out was new, whatever was new and out from the UK. I was gonna get it so I knew what was going on. I was already happened. I knew it was and plus I played in a band with George and we were like Baltimore’s first New Wave punk band scratch and sniff and you know we are we were noticed we know what’s going on musically. We’re very in tune and when you’re that and when you’re that age there’s no internet

But you were like never around here. And I know I’ve told you that a bunch that you say you were sort of running from here. Some degree in your own mind, you know,

I was thinking of going over to Europe to see a play, but that’s where music is with me. So you think it means like sports and I have my cold stuff here and you were telling
Gina Schock 15:21
Oh, we sports but you know yeah, there’s like with the music
Nestor Aparicio 15:25
part at this point in my life. Music has been better than me. The sports has been to me you sit near right now call football players Lamar is not sitting here right now. You’re sitting You’re right.

You show up on my YouTube from time to time so like you and the girl sitting on a couch doing some Entertainment Weekly thing 10 years ago when you had some reunion, or when your your Give me where you guys are right now because I really didn’t want to learn how to shock and I want to learn how I sent you Ed Lauer’s number, and I literally sent you John Allen’s number, right? And I don’t know what happened. Okay, so
Gina Schock 16:03
now you’re in here. Here’s what’s going on the Go Go’s are just just coasting right now. hiatus? Yeah, I don’t know where it’s gonna go. I don’t think any of us do. Because you know what this been? I mean, we’ve been together for over 40 years. And I can’t tell how many times every one of us have just sort of said, Fuck it, I quit. I’m done with this. You know, we’re like, we are family and there’s constantly fighting. And then there’s constantly love. There’s, you know, it goes up and down. It’s like a family. We love each other. We hate each other. But it’s all very intense, right? The emotions or the feelings are intense. Is
Nestor Aparicio 16:35
it more intense? 40 years later or less?
Gina Schock 16:40
Because that’s not in the picture. So it’s not insane. You know, it’s just it’s time and money and emotion. Yeah, yeah. So So you know, hopefully, we’ll get back and do some shows. I always want to work. I love the band. I will do anything with for and with the Go Go’s? Because some of my clients say do you want to do it? You’re always I always want to go, I always want to do it because I love playing. And I love that band. And because of them. I’ve had this incredible life. And I’m still having it. And it’s due to the Go Go’s. So I’ve always list I don’t ever that never goes out of my brain never goes out of my mind. So base. Yes, so Belinda is our tour. She is Yeah. Anyway, we, we weren’t having to do anything. So I was out promoting my book. And, you know, doing some of these comic cons because I’d never done them before. And Jane was like, You should do them because Jane’s done them. And she said, it’s kind of fun or whatever. Anyway, I’ve had a good time doing that. And we’ll see how it goes.
Nestor Aparicio 17:29
I like Jane, I don’t know Jane, but I like Jane Jane’s
Gina Schock 17:31
great. She’s kind of nuts. But you gotta love her. Anyway. I guess everybody could say that we say that about each all fives. So I was been like wanting I’ve been feeling like I need to do something musically. And so and Wendell has been really big push me to do it. Because he, he’s listened to all the stuff that I’ve written. And he goes, he’s like, my biggest fan. He goes crazy. He’s like, you know, you’ve got you have so much great material. Really, you need to get this out there you need. I have hundreds and hundreds of songs that I’ve written over the years. And they’re good. You know, if you can sit down with an acoustic guitar and play it, then you know, it’s good. Well, I could do that with probably at least 50% of what I have. That’s That’s high. That’s that’s a good percentage rate. So, so I just thought, you know what, I want to maybe put a band together my call, I was like, wait, what has a shock? Of course, I’ll call it house to shock. Right. And being as I’ve been in my parents, my dad, mom and dad house a shock 1/45 Street. It was like, Yes, of course. So you the night that we met, I met John and Edie. And when Dell really spearheaded the whole thing, because he he talks to everyone and then he just gives me a report. All I
Nestor Aparicio 18:49
got was a text saying Gina wants to do some songs and needs a guitar player. She goes sing some songs. Maybe we don’t have drums. I need a guitar player. And when I’m like, and I’m like,
