He is, but he mostly goes by Gold Star - just Gold Star now.
hey, is Gold Star for Robot Boy still around BTF? This would be his thread...
If you count the number of great songs he's written, Robert Pollard just may be the best songwriter in rock-n-roll history. To be sure, there is a lot of crap and filler but between 18 albums, countless EPs, tons of singles with generous b-sides, and a few box sets worth of previously unreleased material, the count of great songs probably excedes Lennon/McCarthy, Jaggers/Richards, Dylan, and whomever else you may consider a candidate.
Robert Pollard is a guy with great counting stats but who uses up a lot of outs.
If we're talking best songwriters of the 90s, I'll take Stephen Merritt.
Pollard's worse songs are probably worse (or at least more pointless) than McCartney's, so the trough is lower.
