198. The Stone Roses
Older baseball fans may remember the 1976 season of the Detroit Tiger’s phenomenon, Mark “The Bird” Fidrych whose rookie campaign was laced with instant superstardom and a promise of a legendary career. This didn’t happen, as Fidrych was essentially done after that year and never came close to that and fans waited for a “Second Coming” that would never arrive. The career of the Stone Roses had a similar parallel as they never did come close to matching the magic they did on their debut full length album in 1989.
