Robert Carl Takac Jr. is an American rock bassist and vocalist. Takac is one of the founding members of the Goo Goo Dolls, along with Johnny Rzeznik.
On the season finale episode of The Adamantium Podcast, we are joined by Johnny Rzeznik and Robby Takac of The Goo Goo Dolls. We discuss their ambitions for their 12th studio album, Miracle Pill, and the openness to be vulnerable this far into their career. We also talk about the Buffalo & Toronto music scene in the early years, their favourite Canadian bands, what their life was like in the late 90s when they were one of the hottest bands on the planet, and their illustrious 2004 Buffalo homecoming gig in the pouring rain.
Goo Goo Dolls singer Johnny Rzeznik and bassist Robby Takac give Kyle Meredith a call to rundown the stories behind their latest LP, Miracle Drug. It's an album lyrically built on hope and connection with a side-eye on the political landscape. We hear how touring Dizzy Up the Girl lent a bit of inspiration for this album's direction, their penchant for anthems, the difference in marketing a band now as oppose to their first tour in '89, and having artists like Snail Mail and Soccer Mommy covering their songs.
