Yeah!!! Big DAY for Johnny, Robby & Mike of the Goo Goo Dolls...3 of my favorites guys...the fine folks at Guitar Center on Sunset Blvd, are inducting them TODAY!! The Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum artists the Goo Goo Dolls will be permanently honored on their historic RockWalk. Warner Bros. Records Chairman, three-time Grammy-winning producer and A&R heavyweight, Rob Cavallo will open the event by welcoming the band and reflecting upon the Goo Goo Dolls' musical impact. The induction is the perfect way to celebrate the Buffalo, NY trio's 10(th) studio album, Magnetic, set for release June 11, 2013.
"We are thrilled to have been selected for induction to Guitar Center's RockWalk," said Goo Goo Dolls front man John Rzeznik. "It's an honor to be here with all these musical legends."
"Not only did the Goo Goo Dolls birth some of the most memorable pop-rock hits of the 90s, but, with a new album on the way, they continually contribute to the music community and deliver to their fans, " said Dave Weiderman, Chairman of Guitar Center's RockWalk. "These qualities are amongst the many elements that have made this trio a favorite for over a decade and make them a welcomed addition to Guitar Center's RockWalk."
Guitar Center's RockWalk is dedicated to honoring those artists who have made a significant impact and lasting contribution to the growth and evolution of Rock 'n' Roll, Blues and R&B. As the newest RockWalk inductees, the Goo Goo Dolls' handprints will reside alongside the handprints, signatures, and faces of other equally accomplished musicians and innovators such as Eric Clapton, George Martin, Jimmy Page, Iron Maiden, Carlos Santana, Johnny Cash, Van Halen, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, Run-D.M.C. and Queen, among numerous others. CONGRATS GUYS!!!!!
