Confusing title? It’s based on a comment by Townsman sourbob in a recent thread that Guided By Voices is the “Dave Kingman of rock.”
As another example of how this works, Townsman alexmagic put it this way:
Pete Best: The Wally Pipp of Rock? Though I guess at this point, it might be that Wally Pipp is the Pete Best of Baseball.
Here’s another example I thought of:
Alvin Lee and Ten Years After in Woodstock: The Don Larsen World Series perfect game of rock.
My apologies in advance to sports-rock haters and those of you who know little about baseball.
