The Goo Goo Dolls are my all time favorite band! Their music is just great! These guys have been through thick and thin and now they finally made itTHEYRE HUGE!!!

Way back when John and Robby were teenagers, they would write and play their music in an abandon warehouse in good old Buffalo, NY with no heat just because they loved to do what they did. During their teen years, disappointing events happened. Johns parents both died within one year of each other. John turned to drinking and doing drugs. But, he continued with his music because that was most important to him.

Whats a band without a drummer??? Well, they found one. George Tatuska was it. Now with a full band they got an old van and traveled around to play their music. Finally they got a record deal. But after going on tour again they came out to be thousands of dollars in debt. But this wasnt the end of the Goo Goo Dolls.

John and George were not talking. It got so bad that John left the band! The Goo Goo Dolls were falling apart. John realized that he couldnt give up his dream. So he went back to the band. It wasnt that simple thoughthey had to kick their drummer out. It was very hard to do but John and Robby knew that if they wanted to succeed, they had to do it.

Can you play the drums? Yes, back in the game, the Goo Goo Dolls were looking for a new drummer. Mike Malinin was the first to try-out. HE MADE IT! He was the Goo Goo Dolls new drummer.

Now everything was coming together. In 1995, their song "Name" was a hit! The Goo Goo Dolls then went on tour with the rolling stones. These guys made it big!

Then, John got a bad case of writers block. He was writing about everything and anything he could think of; yet nothing sounded goodthat was the problem. He slid into deep depression, and after almost five years of being sober, he had a drink. Now this is when the Goo Goo Dolls really thought it was the end.

In 1998, John was asked to write a song for the movie "City of Angels." And he did. He wrote the song "Iris". John was so happy to actually complete a thought! The song Iris was very successful. So has their latest album, which is called "Dizzy Up the Girl." This includes the #1 hits "Slide", "Black Balloon", and "Iris". And their newest single is "Broadway". Now, the Goo Goo Dolls are more successful, and happy than ever!
