John Rzeznik and Robby Takac from the Goo Goo Dolls visited Seacrest Studios at Cincinnati Children’s before their concert with Train and Allen Stone. They came ready to rock out to one of their hit songs, “Better Day.”
Libby and Eddie joined the Goo Goo Dolls front and center during the interview. The Goo Goo Dolls were amazed they enjoyed music from the Rolling Stones and AC/DC. Eddie is a musician but is a little shy when performing self-written songs. Rzeznik says he was just like Eddie at that age and made people turn around while listening.
During the interview, Rzeznik said his current favorite musicians are Ed Sheeran and Shawn Mendes. Despite Sheeran breaking their record, “Iris,” by one week, Rzeznik still enjoys his music. The Goo Goo Dolls encouraged aspiring musicians to forget about being famous and focus on finding your own voice in the music.
“You bring something from inside your heart, inside your mind. You bring it into the world, and you make the world a better place,” Rzeznik said.
Before autographs, pictures, and tons of fist bumps, Seacrest Studios played a game of “Love it” or “Hate it.” The patients and families learned about Takac’s love for sushi because his wife is from Tokyo. He has even eaten sushi that was still staring at him!
Thank you to John Rzeznik and Robby Takac from the Goo Goo Dolls for visiting the patients and families at Seacrest Studios in Cincinnati Children’s. We had such a fun time!
