Gil Sharone is an American drummer and member of the band Stolen Babies, Marilyn Manson, Team Sleep, and formerly The Dillinger Escape Plan. He was also a fill in for punk rock band +44. His twin brother is Rani Sharone, also of Stolen Babies.

Sharone supported Mark Hoppus's band +44 when Travis Barker broke his arm. Gil toured around Europe and Australia with +44 in early 2007, it is believed he learned all of +44's setlist on the flight from America to Europe. He played on Travis's OCDP Drum Kit, which is a custom made transparent green. He started using Drum Workshop drums and hardware in October 2011.

Sharone also recorded the drum tracks on the third Dillinger Escape Plan record Ire Works, and joined the band during all of their tour dates in 2008 (he played the European tour in early 2008 both with Dillinger and also as support with Stolen Babies). Gil also performed on Maynard James Keenan's V Is for Vagina album by Puscifer.

In January 2009, it was announced that Sharone had parted ways with Dillinger Escape Plan, due to his focus on Stolen Babies and other personal projects including his DVD, Wicked Beats, based on the drumming styles of Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae. Wicked Beats will be released through Hudson Music late 2010.

Sharone played Teenage Alex on an episode of Full House along with his twin brother, who played Teenage Nicky.

As of November 2013, Sharone began working with Marilyn Manson on a new album.[1][2] On January 15 2015 The Pale Emperor was released. Sharon is currently working on the follow up Say10 due to be released in February 2017.
