During the last 13 months, many established bands and music artists disappeared or really struggled navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic, but the multi-platinum selling band, the Goo Goo Dolls played it smart.
When band members John Rzeznik and Robby Takac realized that the upcoming tour dates, in support of their recently released record “Miracle Pill,” would be cancelled or postponed, they refused to stop working. The Goo Goo Dolls kept themselves in the public’s eye by first doing live streams from their homes and then recording and releasing their first Christmas record, “It’s Christmas All Over.”
With a new holiday album to promote, the Goo Goo Dolls hit all the major talk shows and were featured on several national television holiday specials. This helped not only keep their fan base satisfied, but also exposed them to a whole new audience.
Currently, the Goo Goo Dolls are in the studio recording new material for their upcoming 14th studio release.
What follows is an exclusive interview with Goo Goo Dolls bass player/songwriter/vocalist Robby Takac.
