george's song

I read somewhere that when A Boy Named Goo was first released George was still in the band and had co-written the last song with John. Then when George left they re-released the album and replaced that track with the covers of 'disconnected' and 'slave girl'
 
Does anyone know if there is any truth to this and if so where on earth can I find this?

Our Goo,
who art in Buffalo,hallowed be thy 'name,'
Thy concerts gone to,thy cds bought,in Europe as they are in America,
Give us this day our daily goo and forgive us for liking other bands,
just as we forgive those who do not appriciate good goo, lead us not into temptation,with your hair and toxic songs,
Ah, men!!!

Yeah, it was called Stand Alone, and Robby sings it. PM me and I can send it to you, if you'd like. Wink
 
From the WOG information FAQ at: http://www.musicfanclubs.org/googoodolls/misc/faq.htm#3.1.5.1
"Stand Alone [was written by] George Tutuska and Robby and Johnny did not want to exploit his efforts after he was dismissed. It appeared on promotional versions of A Boy Named Goo, but was replaced with Disconnected and Slave Girl after George was fired.

Ooh ooh, pick me, I know!  Grin
 
Um...I don't think he got on with Rzeznik. And Robby spent a long time being the go-between and then I guess they just got sick of the situation eventually and told him "Look, this isn't working out..."

if i remember right-the last straw was that george felt he wasn't getting all the money he deserved and that pissed Johnny off so since Johnny runs the show and they didnt really get along already-it was so long right then

Yeah that's what I heard. If you notice all their old stuff says that it was written by "the goo goo dolls" and now john takes all the credit for his and robby takes all the credit for his. I dunno what to make of this, except for maybe the band should have more say so.

I think that the band used to write songs together, but now they work individually because John thinks it is easier to get the idea or emotion across if it only has to go through one person as opposed to two.

Yeah i understand that, but taking credit for an entire song is wrong in my opinion. I'm not putting down John, but when he says "words and music by Rzeznik" he's saying that we did the bass line, drum line, and the entire song.
