"the depths of his contributions to rock and roll are unparalleled"

I heard this description on the radio as part of a promo for an upcoming concert. Who was it going to be, you might wonder? What rock and roll legend was coming live, and if we did not attend we would regret it forever?

That's right, it's Rick Derringer! (here, with Edgar Winter Group)

OK, I'll admit the guy has some chops, including "Hang On Sloopy" (this I did not know). But "unparalleled"? He's definitely got one hell of a publicist.
