Goo Goo Dolls - Goo Goo Dolls' Longevity Is Down To Distance

Goo Goo Dolls frontman John Rzeznik is convinced the secret to the group's longevity lies in the bandmates' refusal to hang out with each other when they're not working.
The group has been rocking out since forming in 1986 and the trio has managed to avoid the messy break ups that have plagued other bands from the same era.
The Goo Goo Dolls drew in the crowds on Friday morning (22Jul11) when they performed a free show at New York's famous Central Park for breakfast programme Good Morning America, and Rzeznik reveals the key to their success is distance.
He says, "In that period of time ('80s), it seems we're the only ones left. You move to three different cities, you don't talk to each other when you're not working and, you know, that keeps us together."
And the 45-year-old singer admits he still gets a buzz out of performing live: "The touring part is the most important part because this is something you can't get on the internet or any place else... People still like to come out and see a live show."
