When the time came to write the new Goo Goo Dolls record, the band retreated to an old Masonic temple-turned-recording studio in Buffalo, New York, owned by bassist Robby Takac and singer/guitarist Johnny Rzenik. The band spent seven months writing songs and recording demos in preparation for working with mega-hit producer Glen Ballard. “I guess the fact that I lived there makes it my home studio. My home studio is in my house and my home is in my studio,” Robby laughs. He also has a studio in his Los Angeles home.
