“Kids liked me but I was not much of a disciplinarian. I’m sure that’s why they liked me. And now a lot of them like my undisciplined approach to making music.”
That’s Robert Pollard of Guided By Voices talking about his teaching gig. He taught at an elementary school before shifting gears and fronting GBV full-time. The band is making its first stop in OKC this weekend after 20 years.
Here’s my full interview with Pollard.
Also, check out this bootleg concert video when GBV played here back in 1996.
