A Guided By Voices Tribute At Jay Carney’s Final Press Briefing

“Now that is some good rock ‘n roll!” outgoing White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said as he took the podium for his last press briefing, while the song “Motor Away” by his favorite band Guided By Voices played. The 49-year-old announced last month that he’d be stepping down from his position, to spend more time with his family. He’ll be replaced by deputy spokesman Josh Earnest. “It’s very cool to see Guided by Voices get love at that the White House. However, we have to disagree respectfully with Jay Carney. Robert Pollard and his bandmates, regardless of the lineup, are not the greatest rock and roll band of the modern era. They are the greatest band in rock and roll, period.” Read the full article here: http://dcist.com/2014/06/a_salty_salute_jay_carneys_final_pr.php
