    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 is 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 from the underground punk scene to the top of the charts with hits like “Our Lips Are Sealed” and “We Got The Beat”, as well as how a conflict over royalties almost scotched the band permanently. ---------------------------------- ֎ The Official GO-GO's Website – http://www.gogos.com ֎ To order “Made In Hollywood – All Access With The Go-Go's” - https://amzn.to/388ZWea Visit the 'It's Only Rock And Roll PODCAST' online at: ● Homepage – www.ItsOnlyRockAndRollPodcast.com ● Facebook – facebook.com/ItsOnlyRockAndRollPodcast/ ● YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCFB7uJ3dg4IKSxsNny9Jiw/videos ● Instagram - @itsonlyrockandrollpodcast Be sure to check out our all-new OFFICIAL IORR PODCAST STORE!

    On this episode of The It's Only Rock And Roll Podcast, we visit with American folk-rock troubadour and founding frontman of The Lovin' Spoonful, JOHN SEBASTIAN. We talk of his childhood in NYC as the son of show-business parents, growing up around frequent house guests like Woody Guthrie, Burl Ives, and godmother Vivian Vance. He recounts his early start in the Greenwich Village folk scene, co-founding The Loving Spoonful, and how a pot bust led to the firing of bandmate and dear friend Zal Yanovski, as well as Sebastian's own departure from the band. We also talk session work with Bob Dylan and The Doors, his iconic unscheduled appearance at Woodstock, and how his song idea for a sitcom theme inspired a title change for that now classic TV show. ------------------------------------------------ ֎ Visit JOHN SEBASTIAN online - http://www.johnbsebastian.com ֎ To Purchase “John and Arlen Explore the Spoonful Songbook” - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B099TG6MP5/ Visit the 'It's Only Rock And Roll PODCAST' online at: ● Homepage – www.ItsOnlyRockAndRollPodcast.com ● Facebook – facebook.com/ItsOnlyRockAndRollPodcast/ ● YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCFB7uJ3dg4IKSxsNny9Jiw/videos ● Instagram - @itsonlyrockandrollpodcast Be sure to check out our all-new OFFICIAL IORR PODCAST STORE!
