Craig Macintyre is an American drummer currently playing with platinum selling band The Goo Goo Dolls.

Starting at a very young age, he had already played hundreds of nightclubs and bars by the time he finished high school. Continuing to make a living doing music through his twenties in the New England area, he would eventually make the big move to Los Angeles in hopes of bigger session and touring work. After landing a few short lived projects he auditioned for a then brand new pop singer Josh Groban , Craig toured the world with him for the next 5 years. While Groban took a long hiatus, it was time for him to find other work, after a couple tours with the hit rock band Vertical Horizon , He was asked to play with singer songwriter Colbie Caillat for the next few years. Wanting to stay off the road after a while he recorded with many other big artists including Idina Menzel, Michael Penn, Katherine McPhee, Deana Carter and Seal.

In late 2013 Craig got a call 'out of the blue' to join the Goo Goo Dolls full time. he has toured and recorded with them extensively ever since.

Craig uses SledgePad in all of his DW drum kits.
