Longtime Goo Goo Dolls drummer Mike Malinin announced last week that he has left the band. He told fans in an online posting that "it was not my decision to leave the band. But no grudges held. I wish them all the best."

Malinin replaced the Goo Goo Dolls original drummer George Tutuska in January of 1995. Last Friday, he announced on his Facebook and Twitter pages "Got some news today. Just wanted to say thank you to the fans who've supported me for 19 years! Best of luck & happy travels to the band."

The band confirmed Malinin's departure with the following message on their official website, "Over the past few days you may have heard through the internet that our drummer of the past 19 years, Mike Malinin will no longer be touring with the band.

"It is true Mike is no longer with the band, but we wish him the best in his new journey and hope that fans and friends alike will take a minute to consider this decision was not taken lightly by anyone involved. Things happen personally and professionally that drive difficult decisions like this, but rest assured we are looking forward to continuing our 28 year journey as GGDS.

"We can't wait to share more music and memories with all the fans and friends that have been such a huge part of our lives."
