Guided by Voices: A Brief History follows the fascinating story of leader Robert Pollard's twenty-one year evolution from unrecognized garage-rock genius to his discovery, at age thirty-six, by rock critics and fans. Critics--whose praise went so far as to hail him as 'this millennium's William Shakespeare' - drew comparisons to everyone from Paul McCartney and The Who to Rossini, while fans went bananas at some of the best live rock 'n roll shows ever staged. All the while Robert Pollard wrote, literally, thousands of songs. Written with full, frank and exclusive cooperation from Pollard by former band member Jim Greer, Guided by Voices: A Brief History includes a foreword by famed American filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, cover art by Pollard, a photographic history of the band and contributions from Ric Ocasek of The Cars, Pete Townshend of The Who, Peter Buck of R.E.M., Steve Malkmus of Pavement, and the legendary critic Richard Meltzer.
