There is a Goo Goo Dolls theme available for download. I haven't checked it out yet, but it is at - http://www.galttech.com/thmg_k.shtml.
This is from Allstar Music's gossip column:
Paul Westerberg certainly doesn't hold back when talking about his former bandmates or artists who have, well, shall we say, been very inspired by his former band, the Replacements. When asked "Have the Goo Goo Dolls ever thanked you for being such an inspiration?" by allstar contributor Aidin Vaziri (and may we add that we don't put Mr. Vaziri up to these questions -- really), Westerberg responded, "I don't hang with them, but I get a message from a friend of a friend. They're welcome to all the stuff they've been able to milk thus far. I do know John Rzeznik. We have a little pact that as soon as he's not famous anymore and everyone forgets him, I'll call him up and be a pal. That's when he's going to need a friend. I haven't talked to him in over a year. It's kind of like that. There's no time for certain things, you've got to do what you do. But when it's all said and done, I'll still hang out with them."

Thanks to Tracy of Happy Valley, PA, the World of Goo has received the Musicosm Cosmic Clix! award!
Natalie pointed me towards a little TV Guide Network interview with the Goo's "waxing political" about the Clinton situation.
Also, don't forget about the 2 dates I posted earlier that mysteriously disappeared: March 24 at Hofstra USA in Hempstead, NY and March 30 at the Goldstein Gym at the University in Syracuse, NY!
The Australian radio station Triple-M is having a contest where if the listener who is picked rings up the station when they tell you and names all the announcers, you get to have a BBQ at your house with the Goos as special guests!! (Thanks, Fiona!)
I added the bass tab for Extra Pale, complete with the little bass solo!
Also, I added Katie to the Goo Fans' Photo Album!
Also, I heard a rumor about the Dizzy video being available on the music channel The Box. I checked the website and my local listing, but didn't see it. If anyone does, let me know via email at email@example.com. It's worth checking out, at least!
01:31:07 - A little tour news! The Europe tour starts 1/23 (although I don't know if this is a concert date or a leave-the-US date) and will be for two weeks! Also, this source says that Johnny is not considering doing a solo album right now, but said If I was going to do a record by myself, you know, I'd probably call these guys to play on it anyway."
Check out some pics and video of the Goo's on Rosie from yesterday and 1998 on the Rosie site! Be sure to check out picture #2 from yesterday for a GREAT shot of Mike behind his drums! (Thanks, Natalie!)
I also added pictures of the Fillmore (12/1) promo flyer for the show and Roxy's airbrushing of Johnny to the Misc. Pix page!
And here are some cool Buffalo links for you to check out: Buffalo Music Hall of Fame (the Goo's are 1995 inductees), Official Buffalo Home Page, and The Broadway Market page (a European-style public market founded in 1888 in Johnny's old neighborhood). (Thanks, Rob)!
00:31:15 - The Goo's were on Extra! yesterday! Correspondents were going the American Music Awards around asking the stars who they thought would be a good replacement for Debbie Metanopoulous on the View. John mentioned how it would be great if he were to replace her, for a "male perspective".

Marlow and Brook sent in their pictures for the Goo Fans' Photo Album!
The Titanic soundtrack beat out the City of Angels soundtrack at the AMA's last night, but the Goo's performed "Slide" and sounded great! The camera effect was a little tiring though.
Check out Kat's review and pictures from the Tempe (12/31/98) show!
Rachel, Margarita, Kat, Carrie, and Lori have been added to the Goo Fans' Photo Album!
On the radio Top 40's:
The Pop-Up video of Iris that came out yesterday was very uneventful. Aside from misspelling Rzeznik (a common theme lately), there really wasn't anything new in it. Check the Upcoming Goo Appearances for rerun dates if you missed it!
If you want to vote in a Grammy poll, support the Goo's at the Jam Music polls! At the time of this posting, they were 3rd for Song of the Year and 4th for Record of the Year. A bad piece of trivia is that the last time a group won record of the year was 1980, when the Doobie Brothers won. Hopefully the Goo's will rewrite that trivia!
Kyra let me know that Johnny is in the latest Guitar One magazine with a good interview! Also, Cindy from South Africa sent me her pic for the Goo Fans' Photo Album!
