    A fun coffee table book with a short narrative about drummer Gina Schock’s history with The Go-Go’s. Only a cursory glance at the pressures that caused the band to break up. You’ll get no real insights here, but it is a fun read and the photographs are great

    I feel like being in the go go’s is like being in fight club and you can never really talk about what goes on in either group. There isn’t anything new to be gleaned from the text here that hasn’t a,ready been said I. The other gal’s memoirs or the various docs. The real interesting stuff is from other celebs talking about their time with the band, like Jody Foster, Kate Pierson, Pee Wee Herman, etc. What makes this five stars though are all of the photos and memorabilia included, Any Go Go’s fa I feel like being in the go go’s is like being in fight club and you can never really talk about what goes on in either group.

The go go’s we’re always the soundtrack for anything happening that was fun. The juvenile side of me does wish someone in the band would really spill the tea through. I know if you’re partying every day with everyone who is anyone in LA in the 80s you have more fun stories than we rode around in a car with Rob Lowe.

    Lots of photos, not much writing. All the captions for the photos are at the end of the book, which is really annoying. You can jump from the caption back to the photo, but you have to put a bookmark on the page with the photo and drag to the end of the f#@%ing book every time to read the next caption, which gets old immediately. So you don't bother checking very often. I am, of course, referring to the ebook. Not much new ground is covered here.

It's rather dull considering it's about an all-female band from the 80s known for wild partying and internal power struggles. Schock barely mentions her own drug use, spends about a paragraph on her bandmate's near-fatal heroin addiction (but never identifies the drug as heroin; that would be rude). It's all too pleasant and inoffensive to be really interesting. Yes, you're a good drummer, your band became rock stars, you met famous people, but how do you really feel?

    Go-Go's drummer Gina Schock's memoir was released during an incredibly exciting time for the band - the same week as the Go-Go's were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! Gina's book is filled with many photographs featuring the early days of the band. Having purchased both a hardcover copy and the Audible edition, I enjoyed both - the amount of text is relatively small, but both Gina and bassist Kathy Valentine are among the narrators of the audiobook, and it's always great to hear fro Go-Go's drummer Gina Schock's memoir was released during an incredibly exciting time for the band - the same week as the Go-Go's were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Gina fills in her pre-Go-Go's backstory very well, much in the same way that Kathy and singer Belinda Carlisle did in their earlier autobiographies. Is it too much to hope for guitarists Charlotte Caffey and Jane Wiedlin to write memoirs too? Fingers crossed!

    I was fortunate enough to pick this up at the Go-Go's book signing at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during induction weekend. I loved this collection of photos and essays detailing the history of the band. Includes essays from Jodie Foster, Dave Stewart, Kate Pierson, Paul Reubens, Martha Quinn, the other band members and numerous industry insiders. I feel a bit like the trajectory of the Go-Go's was a bit "Forrest Gump"-like in that they seemed to be everywhere in music from 78/79 to the mid 9 I was fortunate enough to pick this up at the Go-Go's book signing at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during induction weekend.

With the biggest stars at the biggest music events. Loved this behind the scenes look, mostly from Gina's perspective, which I appreciate as a percussionist and photographer myself. Highly recommend... as much for the photos as the Rock stories!

    The writing isn’t very good but I forgive Gina. She’s not an author she’s a musician and this was a fun glimpse into the life of The Go-Go’s. I didn’t think it was possible to endear The Go-Go’s any more but Gina manages to make me love them more. The photos are great and the stories are fun. When I was a kid and we’d pretend to be The Go-Go’s all of my friends wanted to be Belinda but now I know it was all about Gina or Kathy.

    Great pictures but a little light as a memoir...i have read memoirs from 3 out of 5 of the Go-Gos and while all have been good, I wish they would cover the post breakup time a bit more. There original run as a band was a whirlwind, I'd like to know more about why they broke up (besides drugs and money) and what things were like when they would reform.

    If you're a Go-Go's fan, you'll probably love this book. While mostly pictures, there is also a lot of great content on the history of the band. It was great to hear accounts from people such as Paul Reubens and Jodie Foster. If you're a Go-Go's fan, you'll probably love this book.

    Nice pix Many many photos, fun to see, including the bands members and other notable of their era. Text interesting but not on a par with Kathy Valentine's memoir, All I Ever Wanted.

    In 1981, the Go-Go's released Beauty and the Beat, one of the greatest debut albums. This book by Go-Go's drummer Gina Schock tells the story of how the band got there and what came after.
