John Rzeznik serves as one of the judges on FOX's "The Next Great American Band."

As guitarist and lead singer of The Goo Goo Dolls, John Rzeznik is the voice behind the platinum-selling, chart-topping act responsible for such radio staples as "Name," "Iris," "Slide" and "Here Is Gone."

The fifth and youngest child of a Buffalo, NY, working-class family, John Rzeznik inherited his lifelong love of music from his mother and father, both of whom were musicians. As a teen, John Rzeznik found refuge in listening to Jagger-Richards classics, playing in bands and catching shows by the Ramones, the English Beat and the Clash. But it was in college that John Rzeznik met his Goo Goo Dolls bandmates and soon therafter scored a record deal with Celluloid Records, which released the band's first album in 1987. The band later became affiliated with Warner Bros. and began the transformation from thrash-playing punks to respectable rockers unafraid to wear their hearts on their sleeve. John Rzeznik and the band went on to achieve commercial success during their two decades in the music industry, selling 10 million records worldwide and placing 14 songs in the Top 10. John Rzeznik is currently on a worldwide tour for their latest album, "Let Love In," which was released in 2006. The four-time Grammy-nominated band also has two upcoming albums: "Greatest Hits Vol. I The Singles," to be released in November 2007, followed by a rarities collection in early 2008.
