Liz Mantel sat down with Robby Takac, bassist and founding member of the Goo Goo Dolls, to talk about his life in Western New York and how it shaped his career. From growing up in West Seneca to making the trip to the city for college at Medaille, Robby shares lessons he learned along the way and what made him return home. We also check in on how he’s holding up during the quarantine and hear his thoughts on returning to “normal life” after a global pandemic.
“Don’t be scared to try things,” advises Robby, when reflecting on some of his greatest lessons. “You can always say you’re sorry, but you can’t always make that opportunity happen again.”
