Johnny Rzeznik And The Goo Goo Dolls Have "Something For The Rest Of Us"
Here's a new June 2010 interview with Johnny Rzeznik of The Goo Goo Dolls. This one was done in advance of their August 2010 show in Scranton, PA. Coolest part of the chat did not get on tape - I told Johnny this was for their Scranton show, and he proceeded to tell me about how be bought a Lionel Polar Express train in Scranton (I knew the exact store) a few years back, and had a friend of his crash it to pieces! Anyway, Johnny talks here about the band's upcoming new CD, "Something For The Rest Of Us," due August 31st. He also talks about the band's motivation to hit the road months before the record would even be out. Other topics include a really great couple of minutes on his alternate guitar tunings (I purposely had to ask him this, as a guitarist I admire his offbeat tunings in "Slide," "Name," etc.) We also cover a bit about the band's history and musical progression over the years, even the band's influence on the current rock scene. Johnny was in great spirits and was a very personable interview subject. Thanks so much to him for the chat, and make sure you look up the Goo Goo Dolls online at www.googoodolls.com.
