Goo Goo Doll Donates To Hometown

GOO GOO DOLLS rocker ROBBY TAKAC has donated musical instruments to local schools in his hometown of Buffalo, New York.

The IRIS bassist generously puts a portion of his album royalties into his Music Is Art Foundation, which encourages young children's musical talents.

Takac, 40, enthuses, "I don't consider myself any kind of, like, philanthropist, or any sort of weird, self-righteous saviour of the universe or anything like that.

"There's so many talented people here, and so many creative people here and so many motivated people here, and they learn here, they learn to be motivated and efficient and tolerant of things, and then they get really good at everything and move."
