Love this band and I am disappointed in this decision.

Hey we all learned to adapt when George left so we learn to adapt now that Mike is gone. I was fortunate enough to to see the new drummer perform with the band at the "No Snow Ball Concert" in Boca Raton, FL this past December, and he did a great job. Rock on!

Not cool. The band will be forever changed.

Thanks for the update. While I am sure we are all saddened by the decision, things happen for a reason. Good luck to Mike in his future endeavors! Love the Goos no matter what!

Understood. Things happen and although it is unfortunate for whatever the reason the decision was made by the people that are the originals of the group (Johnny & Robbie) for reasons they feel is right. We cannot be angry as we are not in control nor do we know what has happened but in the end it is their decision. We are sorry to see Mike go.... but life goes on and so do the Goo Goo's. We can only hope they find a drummer as good as Mike (which I believe they will). Judy
