This Band Is So Good They Will Make You Forget Your Name
The Goo Goo Dolls have become one of the most globally respected and influential forces in popular music history, selling more than 10 million albums since 1986.
They have had an unprecedented string of 14 Number One and Top Ten multi-format hit singles including “Name,” “Slide”, “Black Balloon”, ”Broadway,” “Here Is Gone,” “Big Machine,” “Sympathy,” “Stay With You”, “Let Love In”, “Before It’s Too Late”, “Jim’s Theme” (Treasure Planet),” and “Better Days,” which, due to its uplifting lyrical spirit, was adopted by CNN as an music bed anthem of sorts for the news channel’s Hurricane Katrina recovery coverage. “Iris,” from the City Of Angels soundtrack, spent nearly 12 straight months on the Billboard charts and held the Number One position for 17 consecutive weeks. By that point, sales of the soundtrack exceeded a phenomenal 10 million copies worldwide. Recently IRIS was also reported by Billboard magazine to be the biggest pop radio song of the last 20 years.
Between the years 1987 and 2015, the band have toured the globe countless times, performed in front of millions of fans, received numerous awards (including four Grammy Award nominations), recorded and released 10 studio albums, a compilation, a live DVD, and Volume One of their Greatest Hits.
Their opener had one of the biggest singles of 2012 with the quadruple-platinum "Home." Phillip Phillips as a singer/guitarist has both rare authenticity and massive pop appeal. Centering on the American Idol season 11 winner's rich, raspy vocals and masterful guitar skills, "Home" served as the lead single from The World from the Side of the Moon (19 Entertainment/Interscope Records)—a platinum-selling album that shot to #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart upon its November 2012 release.
Phillips's widely acclaimed debut also features the platinum single "Gone, Gone, Gone" and the Phillips' penned "Where We Came From," as well as a host of numbers that flaunt the 23-year- old Georgia native's songwriting chops. Phillips spent most of 2013 on the road – with Matchbox 20, his own college headline tour and most recently he brought his rootsy brand of rock-and-roll to arenas around the country as the opening act for singer/songwriter superstar John Mayer's Born and Raised tour.
