In 1986, Chris Daughtry was seven-years-old when John Rzeznik and Robby Takac were releasing their first album as the Goo Goo Dolls; yet here he and his band were, co-headlining with the Goo Goo Dolls on a warm summer's night at Los Angeles' Griffith Park's outdoor venue, Nederlander's Greek Theatre. Adding to the multi-generational mix was the multi-platinum The Plain White T's getting the evening started. They formed in 1997, two years after the Goo Goo Dolls hit with "Name" and everything changed for them.
The crowd was equally multi-generational, from late Boomers (those in their early 50s) to Hipsters in their 20s and 30s and even teens. The generational diversity of the bill made for an equally diverse crowd. But the music pulled it all together, and the evening delivered in spades.
