Formed in 1986 in the crumbling rust belt city of Buffalo, New York, the band was probably started for no better reason than to kill time, make some music, and hopefully get a few free beers from the clubs where they were lucky enough to get a gig.
And then, as lead singer / guitarist John Rzeznik says, "Somewhere in there we sort of figured out how to write songs." The band's third album, Hold Me Up, released in 1990, showcased the sound of the band that would later be refined on their next two releases, Superstar Carwash and A Boy Named Goo. It was the latter of these two releases that landed the band their first hit song with "Name" in 1995. A Boy Named Goo went on to sell over two million copies, and the band toured extensively around the world to support their newfound success.
But it was in 1998 that the Goo Goo Dolls proved that they were not destined to be a "one hit wonder." In that year Rzeznik penned "Iris," which originally appeared on the City Of Angels soundtrack, and was also included on the band's sixth album Dizzy Up The Girl. "Iris" spent almost a year on the Billboard charts, including a phenomenal 18 weeks at #1.
And that, as it turned out, was just the beginning. Dizzy Up The Girl also contained the hits "Slide", "Black Balloon" and "Broadway," all of which were top ten hits on the Billboard charts.
2011 marks the 25th year since founding members John Rzeznik and Robby Takac first starting playing music together. Joined for the past 15 years by drummer Mike Malinin, the Goo Goo Dolls will be touring in support of their ninth studio album, Something For The Rest Of Us. Written and recorded over the past couple of years, the album delivers another dose of great Goo songs such as "Sweetest Lie," "One Night", and "Soldier." With his songwriting, Rzeznik confronts some of the issues that have become part of many people's everyday lives. "I wanted some of the material on this album to address the disillusionment of the difficult period we live in; I wanted to give a voice to the emotional uncertainty that accompanies hard times. So many people are struggling to keep it together through tough economic conditions and two wars that seem to have no end in sight. The ones who bear the brunt of these burdens are everyday people. That's who I want to speak to."
