Goo Goo Dolls
Since forming in 1986, the Goo Goo Dolls have evolved from a scrappy punk-influenced trio into the platinum-selling, chart-topping act behind such radio hits as “Iris,” “Slide,” and “Name”. The band currently consists of founding members John Rzeznik (vocals, guitar) and Robby Takac (vocals, guitar) along with Mike Malinin (drums, percussion).
The Goo Goo Dolls have sold more than ten million albums worldwide and have had fourteen top 10 singles. They are most famous for the hit "Iris", featured on the soundtrack to the 1998 film City of Angels. The single spent nearly a year on Billboard's airplay charts, including 18 weeks at number one, and was nominated for three Grammys. The clean, polished sound of the band's next album, Dizzy Up the Girl, completed the Goo Goo Dolls' transformation into mainstream pop/rockers and accelerated their ascent to international acclaim and a career that has now spanned more than two decades.
