Happy Birthday John!

Before I do anything else today, I must take the time out to be a super-duper crazy fangirl! For those of you who don’t know this already, I am a HUGE fan of the Goo Goo Dolls, they have been my favorite band since I was a youngling and over the years they have never disappointed me.

Not only do I love their music (they are very talented musicians), but I love their heart for people and good causes (like USA Harvest which was started in KY, holla!), and especially their fans. I have had the pleasure of seeing them live 6 times now, which we all know is not nearly enough. What’s funny is the last two shows I have seen them at have been free (one in my hometown and another at the Indy Motor Speedway this summer) and when they weren’t on tour “officially” haha. I can’t wait for the new album to come out so they can go on tour again.

The last two shows, I’ve been really close, front row if you can call it that (no seats, haha). And in February of 2007, when they came to my hometown, I got to meet them. That’s me, 4th from the left, about 60 pounds heavier than I am currently, wow!


Here’s another one at the same show, got an autographed setlist, score! Pay close attention to this one, the next one might shock you…

This is me, one year + 3 months later, notice anything different?? Haha….


This was one of my front-row shows…we made friends with Damage (John’s guitar tech genius) who hooked us up with some picks, yeah!

I also made our local radio station’s website (below on far left), woo hoo! Mom said it was a good thing I shaved my arm pits, hehe…

Anyway, without further delay, HAPPY 43RD BIRTHDAY to my dear JOHN RZEZNIK! Besides my husband, he’s my #1 dude, haha 😉

It took me forever to decide on a pic to use (you don’t understand how many I have) but I chose one from the “Live in Buffalo” concert from 7/4/04 (which I plan to watch on DVD sometime this weekend).

Ah, what the heck, here’s another one…

Thanks for bearing with me…Happy Friday all!

I want to know…who are your favorite bands/musicians/etc? Any other Goo fanatics out there? Leave comments!!
