Album Cover Models Then and Now – Goo Goo Dolls, ‘A Boy Named Goo’

'A Boy Named Goo,' Goo Goo Dolls
Warner Bros. Records

Then: Carl Gellert was 2 years old when his father, a professional photographer, snapped his photo. But Gellert was 12 years old when his photo was released on the cover of the Goo Goo Dolls’ ‘A Boy Named Goo.’

Gellert’s dad had been paid $6,000 for the use of the image and though the seventh-grader was embarrassed by his resulting nickname “Goo” and very public naked [baby] picture, he soon learned to embrace his fame.
