The Goo Goo Dolls' Robby Takac Pokes Fun at Twitter Celeb Culture

The Goo Goo Dolls' Robby Takac is in rare form in his new monthly blog for The Comet where he shares his thoughts on the cultural differences between the UK and the US, the power or radio formats and the sometimes absurd world of social media. Here is a small taste of what Robbie has to say:

Aaaaahhh, sitting having a nice, nice cup of coffee. (Well in an age of extreme internet specificity I will correct myself, a nice, nice macchiato – actually, let me go on this for a minute – thousands of tweets, tweeps, status updates and blog-o-thingys later I'm trying to re-evaluate the actual value of each piece of information leaving my cyber-launch pad on a daily basis. I mean, I really don't need to know what Rob Thomas had for lunch, Questlove bought at the fruit market, or anything that a Palin family member has to say at all. But when in Rome, or closer to Rome, you know the rest. You tend to get caught up in the flowing current, so sorry. Actually, to be fair, if it weren't for Twitter I wouldn't have known James Phelps, the actor who plays "Harry Potter," was at our last London gig…and maybe, as noted, his fans could care less about that fact, we'll never know. I do know the random information channels helped me out at the that moment. Either way, there's a lot of information humming down these lines, and it's all out there for your consumption – and of course to help aid in the rise in status of the machiatto within our immediate GGD fan base. Wow, where did that come from?)

Okay, where was I ? Ah yes, at the glorious Café Nero High Street in Kensington. This is one of my favorite parts of travelling around these areas during our "Something for the Rest of Us" UK tour, a great place to steal a few minutes to yourself, charge up on some seriously hi test espresso and to find a refuge to type up a monthly blog for The Comet! - He's just getting warmed up
