Twenty-five years into their career and Goo Goo Dolls is still going strong. Getting together in Buffalo, Johnny Rzeznik (guitar/vocals), Robby Takac (bass) and Mike Malinin (drums) began as a garage band with a lead singer that was too shy to sing in front of people. After releasing their first couple of albums late in the 80s the alternative band was embraced by college radio and punk rock venues.
It was not until the mid 90s that Goo Goo Dolls achieved any mainstream success. With the release in 1995 of their album "A Boy Named Goo" the band began to be played on Top 40 radio stations. They toured practically non-stop. The album, with its massive single "Name", was one of the best selling alternative rock albums of the 90s. Their next release, (1998) "Dizzy Up the Girl", was equally huge and spawned hits like "Iris", "Slide" and "Broadway".
While their next three albums, including the latest (2010) "Something For the Rest of Us", have not been as commercially successful, Goo Goo Dolls remain a known quantity in the rock industry.
