Goo Goo Dolls – John Rzeznik

Goo Goo Dolls – John Rzeznik LSQ

Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik discusses the music that inspired him as a kid (The Cars, Springsteen, Petty, the Kinks) and how it taught him the importance of melody and each song telling its own story. We also talk about Goo Goo Dolls’ early days, touring in a van and crashing on couches (he always brought along blank cassettes so he could copy some of his host’s music); what it felt like to have a huge mainstream moment that also alienated some of their original fans; and why he’s taking his approach to writing and recording back to basics for the new Goo Goo Dolls album, out in 2022.
