RICHARD LLOYD GROUP (Founding Member of TELEVISION)
Richard Lloyd is a legendary electric guitarist, singer/songwriter, and founding member of Television, a band that rose to fame with their 1977 debut release, Marquee Moon, widely regarded as one of greatest albums in rock and roll history and perhaps the most defining and highly influential release of the 1970’s New York rock scene. Lloyd embarked on a solo career after Television disbanded, releasing seven solo albums and working as a guitarist, session musician, and band member with Matthew Sweet, John Doe, Rocket from the Tombs, and more.
Released in October 2017, Lloyd’s book, Everything Is Combustible: Television, CBGB’s and Five Decades of Rock and Roll: The Memoirs of an Alchemical Guitarist establishes Lloyd as a masterful storyteller, and a humorous, insightful writer with an acerbic, razor-sharp wit.
Backing Richard Lloyd for his spring 2018 tour are second guitarist David Leonard, whom Lloyd has worked with for over three decades, drummer Kevin Tooley, who has toured with Paul Young, China Crisis, Midge Ure, Katrina, English Beat, Certain General, and bassist Tom Currier, a veteran of many tours with Dave Davies of The Kinks and eight albums over quarter century with The Jigsaw Seen.
