Records Chairman, three-time Grammy-winning producer and A&R heavyweight, Rob Cavallo will open the event by welcoming the band and reflecting upon the Goo Goo Dolls' musical impact.

"We are thrilled to have been selected for induction to Guitar Center's RockWalk," said Goo Goo Dolls front man John Rzeznik. "It's an honor to be here with all these musical legends."

"Not only did the Goo Goo Dolls birth some of the most memorable pop-rock hits of the 90s, but, with a new album on the way, they continually contribute to the music community and deliver to their fans," said Dave Weiderman, Chairman of Guitar Center's RockWalk. "These qualities are amongst the many elements that have made this trio a favorite for over a decade and make them a welcomed addition to Guitar Center's RockWalk."

Guitar Center's RockWalk is dedicated to honoring those artists who have made a significant impact and lasting contribution to the growth and evolution of Rock 'n' Roll, Blues and R&B. As the newest RockWalk inductees, the Goo Goo Dolls' handprints will reside alongside the handprints, signatures, and faces of other equally accomplished musicians and innovators such as Eric Clapton , George Martin, Jimmy Page, Iron Maiden, Carlos Santana, Johnny Cash, Van Halen, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, Run-D.M.C. and Queen, among numerous others.

About Guitar Center's RockWalk

Guitar Center's RockWalk became a reality on November 13, 1985 with inaugural inductions including Stevie Wonder, Eddie Van Halen, Creator of the Gibson Les Paul guitar Ted McCarty, Martin Guitar founder C.F. Martin III, Marshall Amplifier creator Jim Marshall. At last, the Rock 'n Roll world could claim for itself an institution every bit as compelling as Mann's Chinese Theatre, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Located at Guitar Center's Hollywood location on Sunset Boulevard, all Guitar Center RockWalk inductees are chosen solely by past honorees. In this way, inductees are chosen by real "music authorities," those who would best be able to gauge his or her contribution to music history.

As the world's largest retailer of musical instruments, Guitar Center is dedicated to supporting the global music community and providing musicians with opportunities to get their music heard. Guitar Center's musicianship programs include the award winning music television series Guitar Center Sessions, the weekly radio show Connections Made By Guitar Center , and the acclaimed podcast series At: Guitar Center with Nic Harcourt as well as various competition based programs such as Guitar Center Presents Your Next Record , Guitar Center Singer-Songwriter , Guitar Center Drum Off , Guitar Center On-Stage and Guitar Center's Battle of the Blues .
