John Rzeznik On The Future Of Goo Goo Dolls After His Vocal Troubles

Deniz Kivilcim

Goo Goo Dolls frontman John Rzeznik has recently spoken to Louder Sound where he revealed his thoughts on the band’s future after the problems with his vocal chord. The frontman was asked how he found returning to the road after the incident, which he replied with:

“I was apprehensive, yeah. But weirdly, at the same time, I tore a ligament in my elbow and couldn’t play the guitar either. It happened after we had finished the record. I spent hundreds of hours with a vocal coach and taking loads of anti-inflammatory drugs, which make you go crazy – I wanted to turn cars over and stuff. Basically, I retrained myself to sing.”

On the same matter, Rzeznik spoke to USA Today last year too. He recalled the first time he had found out about the trouble and said:

“I had to stay completely silent for two weeks. I’m sitting there going, ‘Oh, my God. I have no other skills! I can’t go get a job.'”

Rzeznik had to use meds for his vocal and go through physical therapy for his elbow. After getting better, he hit the roads with Goo Goo Dolls again.

Started on June 13, the band’s currently on UK/Ireland tour, which will last until June 25. See the dates here.
