Goo Goo Dolls News & Info / Conciertos Peru - Interview with Robby Takac
« Last post by Gen on October 07, 2019, 08:48 PM »

Goo Goo Dolls will perform for the first time in Lima as the supporting act of Bon Jovi on Wednesday, October 2 at the National Stadium . The New Jersey band returns to Peru to introduce us This House Is Not For Sale, Bon Jovi's fourteenth studio album , and tickets are still on sale from S / 120 through Teleticket.

We talked on the phone with Robby Takac , bassist of Goo Goo Dolls since its founding in 1986. Since then the band has gone through different facets that go from its origins in punk rock, through alternative rock during the 90s, to more electronic touches in his most recent albums.

After two decades since they jumped to world stardom thanks to the mega hit « Iris «, Goo Goo Dolls will arrive for the first time in South America with dates in Peru and Brazil in which they will have to present Miracle Pill (2019), the album number twelve of Your discography In our country they will have to be the supporting act of Bon Jovi who returns after 9 years to replenish the National Stadium.

Then we leave the interview with Robby Takac of Goo Goo Dolls .

They will be Bon Jovi's support band on this tour. How did your relationship with Bon Jovi begin?

We did a fairly long tour about 12 or 15 years ago in the United States. We were like two months with them. It's also that Jon Bon Jovi's brother made a video for us. So we have been related to your family and this will be a good opportunity for us.

They have opened bands as diverse as Bad Religion and Korn. What has been the most challenging audience they have touched?

Probably the most challenging audience was when we opened The Rolling Stones. People really wanted to see the Rolling Stones and that was quite difficult. When the opportunity to play appears before thousands of people it is a challenging experience but it also has its great rewards.

In the nineties alternative rock bands had a contradiction between being very successful but also feeling guilty about commercial success. How was it for you to lead with commercial success coming from a past punk rock?

The world was changing so traumatic. I remember people rejecting commercials or having their songs used for movies. The bands did not want to be associated with the commercial world. But as the industry changed and we grew older, we began to see how alternative rock entered the mainstream world. The alternative term means hearing something different from what everyone listens to but in the 1990s alternative music was what everyone heard. So I'm not sure what this was an alternative to. I think the most important thing for our band was that we grew up in a time when there was a concern about that kind of thing. I think it was good for us to come from an honest place.

Another change today is that there is not so much money destined to invest in the development of artists as there was at that time. What do you think of the music industry today? Do you miss the times when there were many resources invested in a few artists?

I think there is a fairly vibrant minor league today. The bands are practically alone. Composing songs is an important aspect of being a band but there is also the ability to interact with all the things a band needs to be successful. All the resources that people now have to work themselves, such as social networks or streaming services, give you a chance to show yourself.

When we were dating, along with bands like Nirvana that emerged in the 1990s, there was a great opportunity to get out there and get a label to hire you and become a great star. I don't think people have that today. They know you have to be there and work but in many ways they are alone. In a way it is a bad thing but I think it is mainly different.

He was listening to his new album Miracle Pill (2019) and reading some comments on the Internet. There are many people who enjoy the new sound but also many who ask for more of the old Goo Goo Dolls. How do they see this?

After so many years making records one hopes that people will always be willing to listen to the new and move towards the new. But there are still people in Buffalo who ask us to return to 1988. All we can do is what we believe is best for us.

What do you think about those who say that guitar music is dead and that rock is dead?

Well, you have many guitars in the music of Post Malone just like there is in the music of Chuck Berry. We are not the same people we were in the eighties, so we do not make the same music. We will continue doing what we want and I don't know what the next trend will be.
Goo Goo Dolls News & Info / PS News - Music Review: 'Miracle Pill'

By Goo Goo Dolls, Warner Records 2019.

Goo Goo Dolls were formed in Buffalo, New York state, in 1986 by founding members John Rzeznik and Robby Takac and Miracle Pill is their 12th studio album.

They have been quiet achievers compared to many of their contemporaries who burned brightly but disappeared just as quickly.

Goo Goo Dolls have sold more than 12 million albums worldwide and, in the process, garnered four Grammy Award Nominations and achieved the accolade of holding the all-time record for most Top 10 singles on American radio with 14 number one and Top Ten Hits in a row.

Among this string of hits, Iris topped the ARIA chart in 1998 and stayed in the Australian charts for more than 30 weeks as well as gaining #1 on the US Hot 100 for 18 straight weeks and was named number one Top 40 Song of the Last 20 years.

They’ve achieved all this but are still relatively unknown outside their close-knit circle of fans.

Listening to this album, it’s amazing that their profile isn’t greater because they are a very good band.

Miracle Pill has been praised as the best album they’ve released in years.

In an interview with Spin magazine, lead singer and guitarist John Rzeznik shared the band’s cultural observations and experiences that shaped Miracle Pill.

“I wanted to do something bold and bright” said Rzeznik.

‘I wanted to sing about the need for human connection and the constant change we go through as people.”

The entire collection of songs delivers musicianship that is engaging, combined with lyrics that are intelligent, emotional, intimate, and relatable.

The songs reflect on our current societal need for instant gratification and the lack of depth and empathy that we experience as a consequence.

The album is very good and sparkles with some absolute gems of songs.

Long live the quiet achievers!

Goo Goo Dolls News & Info / Dead Press - ALBUM REVIEW: Goo Goo Dolls – Miracle Pill

By Tim Peacock

For over three decades, Buffalo’s Goo Goo Dolls have been putting out the hits. With some GRAMMY nominations, platinum records, and a handful of other achievements to their name, it’s fair to say they know how to write a song.

‘Miracle Pill’ is the band’s twelfth full-length album, which lead singer/songwriter John Rzeznik describes it as being written from a place of honesty about this time in his life, and something that fans who’ve grown up with the band will relate to.

Pop-rock doesn’t get much catcher than with opener ‘Indestructible’, fuelled by a chorus that builds up fast and loops round and round again. Full of woo-ing chants, it’s a truly irresistible joy that comes with this song. In a seamless transition, ‘Fearless’ follows and continues the joy, but adds a slight edge of confidence and strength on top.

‘Lost’ offers a Coldplay-esque, slower heartfelt sing-along song, the type that you could imagine an arena of phone torches swaying along to. The song further plays into the pop-rock genre, and though it’s enjoyable, it lacks any spark of originality. There’s a glimmer of the soulful emo lyrics that made Goo Goo Dolls‘ earlier hits so popular, but the chorus comes around too quickly for the verses to build on that emotion.

It’s the title-track, however, that gives this album its unique personality. The keys tapping throughout gives it a punchier feel than most of the album, and there’s a real passion to the way the vocals are presented in this piece. This song oozes swagger and ownership, really making up for the more generic cuts on the record.

Some further character is then added in ‘Money, Fame & Fortune’, using synth and additional female backing vocals to create a more versatile sound to break up the album. Whilst still owning some repetitive catchy lyrics, this song feels somewhat suave, breaking away from loud arena chants and slow moving into a funky club vibe, adding a very different feel to the album for a short interlude.

‘Miracle Pill’ is nearly 40 minutes of inspirational, uplifting, joyful music. Whilst some tracks do feel dated, and trapped in the early 00s/late 90s era of radio rock, it’s hard to find too many things to dislike about this album. It just puts a smile on your face with the persistent optimism of the lyrics, the upbeat tones of the music, and just enough music versatility to keep from feeling generic.

Goo Goo Dolls have demonstrated yet again with ‘Miracle Pill’ that they find no difficulty in writing crowd-pleasing pop-rock hits that get people chanting along and having a good time.
