SIDEWALKS host Cindy Rhodes talks to lead singers John Rzeznik of Goo Goo Dolls and Chris Daughtry of Daughtry. The two bands are touring together in the summer of 2014.
Formed in 1986, The Goo Goo Dolls consists of guitarist and vocalist John Rzeznik and bassist and vocalist Robby Takac. Some of their popular songs include “Iris,” “Name,” “Broadway,” “Black Balloon,” “Slide,” “Here Is Gone,” “Sympathy,” and “Big Machine.” Along with four Grammy Award nominations and numerous awards, the group has recorded and released nine studio albums. Additionally, Rzeznik has been honored with the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award, while the Goo Goo Dolls have been inducted into Guitar Center’s Historic Hollywood Rock Walk.
Daughtry is a rock band featuring lead singer Chris Daughtry and current band members Josh Steely, Josh Paul, Brian Craddock, and Elvio Fernandes. Singer Daughtry was a fourth-place finalist during season five of “American Idol.” When he signed with 19 Entertainment and RCA Records in 2006, a band was formed around him and used his last name as an easier name recognition, since fans already knew him from the popular TV competition series. Daughtry has scored four No. 1 hits, garnered four Grammy nominations, won four American Music Awards, sold over 8 million albums and 18 million singles worldwide. Some of Daughtry’s singles, include “It’s Not Over,” “Home,” “Feels Like Tonight,” “No Surprise,” and “What About Now.”
