My Record Collection by Goo Goo Dolls' Robby Takac

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their record collection are. This week, it's the turn of The Goo Goo Dolls' bassist Robbie Takac, let's see what he goes for...

 

The record that made me want to be in a band was…

"This was The Rolling Stones - Through The Past Darkly, it was given to me as a gift by a relative on cassette when I was young and got stuck in the family car stereo, meaning if we wanted to hear music... that's what we heard!"

 

The record I've played more than any other is…

"This is Michael Jackson - Off The Wall, it's my daughter's favourite record."

 

The record that always makes me feel good is…

"Again, this is Michael Jackson - Off The Wall, as I said, it's my daughter's favourite record..."

 

The record I turn to when I'm feeling down is…

"This has to be Kyary Pamyu Pamyu - KPP Best, it's J-Pop with a soul. Well, maybe some kind of alien soul, but a soul nonetheless..."

 

The record I think is the most underrated of all time is…

"Cornelius's Point. This is is one of the most awesome soundscapes that I've ever heard, great songs, great production and super unique ideas."

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"Shonen Knife's Osaka Ramones, the US version, as my wife, Miyoko did it!). We released this album from Osaka Japan's indie darlings on my Good Charamel Records label, I co-produced it as well!"

 

 

The record with my favourite title is…

"Has to Thomas Dolby's The Golden Age of Wireless. I just love that title and it's an era gone by, I'm afraid."

 

The record I can't understand why everybody loves is…

"Anything by that Mackelmore dude. Enough said..."

 

The last record I bought was…

"I was actually given a copy of a 1977 Todd Rundgren Bootleg by a couple of awesome brothers I'm touring with this Summer, but the last actual piece of vinyl I bought was probably a vintage copy of Rolling Stones Her Satanic Majesties Request with the 3D cover art."

 

The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2019 is…

"Our new record Miracle Pill coming out of all of your speakers and headphones."

 

The greatest record of all time is…

"This has to be Todd Rundgren's A Wizard A True Star. He is and you should hear this record if you haven't. It will change you."

 

Goo Goo Dolls' new album Miracle Pill is released on September 13th.
