The Spin stopped in Whole Foods on Saturday for some hot bar action, and it wasn't long before we noticed that the P.A. seemed to be playing the same soggy acoustic soft jam over and over again. It wasn't long after that that our companion pointed behind us and said, "Is the guy from the Goo Goo Dolls playing at Whole Foods?" We laughed. We took a bite of delicious bacon. Then we turned around. There was a blonde, Goo Goo Dolls-y dude actually playing
the same song over and over again. (Well, maybe not exactly the same song, but the strummy boo-hoos all ran together.)
Our companion later identified the Goo Goo Dolls song "Slide" emanating from the general direction of the Goo Goo Dolls-y dude. Given that information, which we assumed to be true, because we don't know any Goo Goo Dolls songs, we couldn't help ourselves (since this is the kind of town where "celebrities" of the Goo Goo Dolls variety come to, uh, convalesce), so we walked as nonchalantly as we could past the gelato case and got a closer look. We squinted our eyes at the blonde guy with the sensitive guitar. Nope. We had no idea if that was the actual Goo Goo Dolls guy or not. Doesn't Goo Goo Dolls guy look kind of like Jon Bon? Is there really a guy trying this hard to sound like Goo Goo Dolls guy without actually being him?
So, Goo Goo Dolls guy, was that you, singing-songwritering at Whole Foods on Saturday, or what?
